A big part of me wants to keep mine original and I know I hate myself if I did a conversion and then realize it only made the needle move a tiny bit.

if you never get on the freeway you'd notice the top end difference less - but if you drive it for a day or more, want to go up real mountain passes, and ever want to not think twice about hopping on the freeway - there is a real difference.

And power steering is awesome

Fixed the parking brake and took it to get inspected. The inspector laughed when i told him to smack the steering wheel to get the headlights to work. No to get the headlights to stay on as smacking the wheel while driving is annoying.

Sleeved my stock tie rod / track rod with 1.5" OD, 0.25" wall 4130 condition-n chromoly , then TIG welded the ends circumferentially. Hopefully it will last longer than stock, but at Rausch who knows.

Was over at Charles's place and he helped me with diagnosing and fixing a 90W leak on my axles, which seems to be tied to several thing. Axle flange bolts worked somewhat loose, stub axle nut wasn't as tight as it should have been. Fixed everything and still found slight play in the wheels after replacing parts and it looks like my swivel ball pivots have play on the left and right sides.

Fun stuff...

You'll need to re-shim them. One of my favourite jobs

Wow. Rebuilt truck, 4.6, galv chassis, new doors, new paint, maintained, at least the last two POs are forum members, yet still running the original oil cooler lines? I don't get it.

The M635 was also a casualty of my diminished free time and lack of garage. I got an offer I couldn't refuse and it went to a museum in Austria. Not too many euro-spec e24's were delivered in CA, so it was rust free compared to all the unrestored examples over here.

I really just want my NAS 110 back

Installed LED VW Rabbit turn signals in the ARB. Very simple splice, solder, extend and re-connect. Bought the lights on eBay.

I changed the fluids in the diffs and transfer box today. I also determined that the check engine light and oil pressure light are inop, and not because of the bulbs. I also determined that whoever did the auto swap (overall a pretty good job) did not wire the transmission to the ECM, which causes an idle fluctuation when in drive. A nice thing I discovered was a galvanised bulkhead. I also washed off 3k miles of dirt and salt from around the country.

I really lucked out. I think its more like a $40k truck than a $27k truck. There are a few issues with it, but nothing that I can't fix.
