My new, 1987 Dodge D100 318 Auto Shortbed
Got this beast from Vic, A Vietnam Vet. The guy even filmed some for us. Which is pretty awesome being that we never actually get footage when we go to get stuff. This is pretty cool to have. Yep, 350 bucks, blown out brake line, 20100 miles on it, Smokes like a son of a bitch. Trans doesn't like to shift. And very little rust. Good deal.
1974 Dodge W100! Finally got it running
Finally got this crazy beast up and going. i was at the junk yard with drew, sitting in a dodge van, i looked down, and a holly 2BBl was staring up at me from the 318 perched in the van. "Holy shit! we can get the W100 going!!!" Later that day... this :) first time it ever ran in the field. tried with some carbs i had, but they were all fucked. It ran when i first got it, but it was at kyles cabin for 2 years or so. i guess its been here for about 2 years... and now... finally, the beast is running! it charges, cools, has a gravity fed gas tank on top of the radiator, its manual steering, with 3/4 turn play in the steering box... 3 speed on the tree, with all the linkage missing, so you have 1'st and reverse with a bar through the floor. no brakes, the clutch pedal sticks down, gotta reach down to pull it up (i added 3 springs, and half a can of wD40 since this vid) no inner fenderwell on the drivers side, and only the amp gauge works on the dash :) bassically... yeah, its a fucked up truck, and its awesome :) More vids of this beast to come.
1985 Dodge W100 Slant 6 Resurection 2014
Bringing this beast back to life. Been sitting for a few years i think. Since the shifter got stuck in 1st, and the ignition system stopped igniting :) Things going to be so much fun.
Resurecting the 1960's Cub Lo Boy
Been here for a good while now. Since 2013, and finally decided to start the awesome beast up again. The day Mike and sean were over I did end up cleaning the carb out really good. It had a ton of stuff in it that kept blocking the main jet. Pretty much ran perfect as soon as i put it back together. Except for needing the choke about 7/8 the way on as always. I think the air inlet on the carb is just too big. The original carb probably made better vacuum at the jet, with the smaller diameter tubes. Another video that is very uncharacteristically recent of me. The Mike and Sean footage is from yesterday, and the other footage just from a few days before. haha. I'm still months and months behind in editing and uploading... But hey. This shits a lot of work. Also, hope some of you people were out there contributing in some way to the march for science! :) Pretty important stuff. Also, some specs on the engine, its about 10hp, give or take, its a 59.5 cubic inch (975cc) flat head (valve in block) four cylinder. If a 200S engine was 975cc instead of 192cc, then it would be 67hp. The Lo Boy looks to have about 39.5 Ft lbs torque, and a 975cc scaled up version of the ATC200S engine, would be 55ft lbs torque.
