Duct tape. Handyman's secret weapon. :D

If women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy. :lmao:

What ever I have been doing it appears my hair is growing back so I need to keep doing it! Problem is it will take more than a roll of race tape to get a vehicle with an oval diff cover opening to get you home! And sorry to disappoint but I have no inspection covered diffs anymore......that is so pre 1980ish! :rolleyes: Like for example this pic from a couple weeks ago.....

Whats left of F-350 springs.

Currently working hard at making the rest of the Cruiser not look like it has sat for the last few years.... :(

I can happily say there is no mini truck stuff anywhere on this old dinosaur.....yet! Oh.....pooh.....front hubs are Aisens so I guess I can't say that now. Stands to reason as the hubs are the "fuse" in the drivetrain and normally they should be the weakest part but alas....they have Mr. Longfield parts in them too to make them Cruiser worthy.... :rolleyes:

I think, but don't really know, that I'd rather have mini truck parts on my Toyota than some leftover Ford truck parts. BaileyFJ40 might disagree with that, but at least Toyota ain't begging for billions of my tax $. :hill:

You are right on as usual ole wise one! Thats why I'm only using 1/2 of the spring! I figure it actually evens out the Chev transmission, steering column and steering box. :rolleyes:

The springs are only "Ford" parts if they were sourced new. C'mon Kevin, tell us you bought them used and supported the local economy. :p:

"Yet" being the key word. Only because UB is so slow on his buildup... sssshhhhhhh!
