Dusten, What fitting are you looking for?
180* earle's -8
I don't like the way jj routed my feed line so I'm changing it.

The Earl's hoses only work with earls fittings I've found.

I have friends that work at both FedEx and UPS.....it’s sad when they’re both just there for the paycheck...because the company morale sucks.
Personally, I’ll take UPS over FedEx. FedEx has damaged so much shit I’ve sent out or received! They’re capable of messing up a wet dream!!!

starts right up without a bunch of cuss words now. So I believe that issue I was chasing for so long has been resolved. Sounds better idling than it did before. Or maybe it’s because it’s been so long since I’ve herd it run. Now I gotta pull the blower and intake and fix a coolant leak 🤦🏻‍♂️

Bled the brakes. Flushed the fluid.

And a shot of the engine bay with the hydroboost and everything in place. Hopefully I can drive it tomorrow.

For a “shitbox” or whatever you refer to it as....that’s one nice looking shitbox! Haha
Good luck on the drive tomorrow!
Shitbox. Lol
No drive today. It's pouring. I'll pressure test the brakes and call it good.

Happy new year guys.

Wife got me some new floor mats.. 10 years ago she got me my first set. Pretty cool.

Truck is pretty much away for the winter.. may start looking into some suspension and getting the truck lower and riding better.

Fired it up. Pressure tested the brakes. Ensured the ps/hydroboost was bled and topped off. Drove it up the street. Brakes feel good. Pedal is firm. I need to bed the pads tomorrow and give it the beans.

Took it out and did the brake bed procedure todd includes

Jesus these things work. And the pedal feel on hydroboost is so good.
Flushed the ic system today. I had to much water wetter and was getting some (a lot) foam.
I opened the petcock on the res and just ran the pump while letting it drain on the ground and refilling it. Put about 10 gallons of water through it
