Re: Spring Start-Up - What to look for?

Well the truck is running but the carburetor had to be changed. Float broke off likely got some moisture in it from sitting froze and broke. Regardless getting closer to seeing it running properly. Thanks for the input and charts. Appreciate it.

Re: Trafficators - Anyone installed these on their trucks

I have been looking at LED lights and have reached out to a couple of people already recommended on other threads within the forum.
