I WRECKED MY TRUCK

I WRECKED MY TRUCK

I WRECKED MY TRUCK Last  ,  Thursday a bit before noon.  This happened all because of my  SNEEZING    10 times in a row.  Talk about some SIDEWAYS SHIT.    Well It could of been a lot worse, so I’m thankful that it wasn’t.

So now that  I WRECKED MY TRUCK, I get to FIX IT.   This is not an easy job.  There is a good bit of BODY WORK, that needs to be done. The last Time that I did any body work I was still in my TEENS, a good 35 years ago.  Well right now I’m just concerned with getting it back on the ROAD.    So  I  had the front end Pulled out about 8 to 10 inches , by a friend that does body work for a living.    This  cost me $400 to get done.  Then there was the Radiator , fan , and the fan clutch .  There is also the light fixtures as well .  There was also getting it TOWED to and from the shop as well.

Well I WRECKED MY TRUCK,  and it has cost me $650 already.      I still need to get a few parts  and the light fixtures . I’m thinking it will cost about $200 to $400 to get it finished to a good drivable state. I’m hoping to find some cheep parts at the salvage yard.  I need to find a pair of turn signal   light fixtures , the pair of bumper lights , a mounting assembly  for the head lights and a bracket that holds the front bumper on to the frame.    There are a few other things that I will get later but for now these will do .  Later I will want to get a bumper , A grill , the shroud ,and skirting under the bumper , there might be a  front passenger side fender too.  We shall SEE how this works out , later , on down the road.

AS for now , I WRECKED MY TRUCK , and need to fix it as fast as I  can, so I can get to work and keep things going around here.  Well This weekend has been a lot of work , to say the least .   Well it is time to get after it .

WORKING WEEKEND

WORKING WEEKEND

Well this WORKING WEEKEND  has been due to a New Girl  that didn’t show up to work .   I was ready to get home Wednesday morning  and start my Weekend, but my relief failed to show up. I made the calls  and no one picked up .  This left me at  work dealing with the day Shift work.   Well the first day of my WORKING WEEKEND was only a half day. I got a bit over 4 hours of OverTime.   My relief, the new Girl , had still not call when I got relived, so I claimed the shift for Thursday.

When I got home it was Well Past  Noon.  I was hungry and went to my favorite Chines Food place, The TEXAS CHICKEN BOWL.   They have a $5 lunch special and a fix your own Stir Fry for $7.    I went for both.   I got the BEEF & Broccoli special and Chicken Stir Fry with an extra  bit of Fried Rice ,  for $13.50  .     Well  I ate about half of the  Stir Fry and all the Special  on the first setting.   Then I got to the tending of the critters, they were Upset with my being so late to tend to them.   By time I had every one feed and watered  and cleaned up it was 5:30 , and I went to sleep. Something woke me up for a minute around 6:45 , It was the phone and I shut it off and was back to sleep in two minutes.

I woke up a few minutes after midnight and  finished  off  the Stir Fry.  Then went back to sleep till 4:50 in the A of the M to get the Thursday part of my   WORKING WEEKEND ,  going .    I spent the first 30 minutes playing with the Puppies, they were very happy with this.  I’m not sure how well the neighbors liked it .    Their bedroom light came on while JACK was singing With me.    This was not a TOP HIT in anyones book, but the puppies and me where having a lot of fun.  Well after  The Singing, it was time to get to the day . I let the puppies out into the backyard and Went to take a shower. When I was done I went to let them back in the house to feed them.  JACK WAS GONE.

Jack had went on a bit of a WALK ABOUT.   He had climbed over the fence using the stack of Pallets   I   have.  Well I started calling for him but he was gone.  I garbed a cup of Coffee and the stuff i carry to work every day and headed to the truck to go look for him.  This was a few minutes before 6AM, I was still at it at 7AM when I gave up and headed to work. I was 10 minutes late,due to Jack.

I was worried about him, being out , and this ate at me all morning. Around noon my Neighbor called me to say JACK  was out and on the front Porch  , and had been there for a while.   Well this was a relief for Sure.    When  I   got Off at 3:30 ,  I went straight to the house, to find Jack Still on the porch.   He was  All  happy to see me. I was MAD at him , but was very Happy to  see him TOO.   Well I got him in the house and tended to the critters while Jack DOWNED  the food in his bowl. He had missed breakfast too.

After all of the critters were feed,  I gave in to my HUNGER PAINS .  I went looking for food for ME.   The thing is that I had not got to the store.  Well  this needed to be fixed Right Now.   So off to the store i went.  I needed Bread and  the fixings for some HOT DOGS.   I didn’t spend but $12 there.   When I got home I got to cooking some Hamburgers.  Just TWO of them.  They were  double decker jobs with cheese, lettuces and tomato.   I should of took off my work shirt I got drippings all down the front of it.   Well I was full .

Well I got to the keeping the BACKYARD HOMESTEADING ACT , part of my normal  Weekend. Things like getting the trash out and a load of laundry going.  it was while doing this that I found the Quail eggs in the Incubator had started to hatch out and I needed to setup a brooder box. Well this was a good thing, I need a few more chicks to sell to cover the feed bill.

Well now as it is Friday morning about 7am .   I’m getting to the end of my WORKING WEEKEND.   I plan to get all of the things done with tending to the critters and then move a bunch of pallets so that JACK can not climb on them to get over the fence again.    I need to get this done by NOON .  I have to go to work tonight for my normal work week.   Well this is it for this WORKING WEEKEND post and I’ll get back soon.

FUN WITH OLD TRUCKS

FUN WITH OLD TRUCKS

Well now that I got this  Truck  I get to have that FUN WITH OLD TRUCKS Time   This means that I get to find all of the little things that are wrong with it.  Things like the fuel having WATER in it and that the Gas is Very OLD  and looks more like Gray Green sludge than gas.20160901_151307 20160901_151252

This is what came out of my old  FUEL FILTER  when I  changed it out. This was scary to say the least.   I can’t  see how  it is running on this stuff.  Well I have a new filter as well as some fuel treatment  in there and will run it dry , then put a small amount back in with more treatment again.  Then I will check  to see how it looks and decide on if I’m going to drop the gas tank to fix this or not.  I just didn’t have time this weekend.   So I’ll be having more  FUN WITH OLD TRUCKS later.

Now to go on about having  more FUN WITH OLD TRUCKS.  there was the windshield that I know about going in.  At least this one was  an easy fix, just had to make a few calls  to find the best price and a time that was  good for me. This was a easy fix  but a hit on the wallet for  $165. the good thing about this is that I don’t have to clean the SMOKERS FILM off of the new windshield.  I will still have to get to work on the other windows though.

Well the surprise of this  FUN WITH OLD TRUCKS was when  It  quit starting on me.  I was backing out the driveway and stopped with the front end up  in the drive but the rear was down in the gutter of the road.   I had to wait for a bunch of cars to go by and my truck died on me .   I was try  to start it and it wouldn’t  start .  Well remember the fuel was bad and had a lot of water in it , well with noes up in the air , the water went to the low end of the tank and the fuel pump sent a lot of water to the engine  and it  don’t run on Water.  Well I kept trying to start it and It stopped working.   It would not even go click . Well this is not a good thing. So now the FUN WITH OLD TRUCKS  Begins  on this problem. 1472813763337 1472813771606 1472813795581

 

 

 

Well After some friends helping me out with some trouble shooting I had to give up for the night.  At least we had it  down to three things that it could be , a bad wire, a bad ground , or the Starter Relay.  Well it was the relay , and it cost me $20  to get the part and a trip across town as my parts store didn’t have it but sent me to the other store across town to get it there.  So  with a jumper wire at the ready , to start the Truck, I was driving around town to get the relay and other things I needed to have to get this Truck going.  Well right there in the parking lot of the Parts Store I swapped out  the RELAYS and fixed the STARTING problem.

SO to the next Part of  my  having FUN WITH OLD TRUCKS.    this was another one that I knew about .   The TURN SIGNALS, oh what fun.   I spent time crawling around checking wires and connections and replaced the bulbs all the way around but still ended up running a few wires to get all  of the Lights  working the way they should.   SO now they all go flash-IE  and blink-IE and stay on like they should.1472813846749

 

 

Well I got it fixed up well enough that I can get it  inspected now. So this   FUN WITH OLD TRUCKS post is at an end now and i get to go get the TAGS, Title, AND REREGISTRATION in my name.   SO I’m felling like , I did SOMETHING GOOD today.1472814633210

 

 

 

 

Well this is it for this  FUN WITH OLD TRUCKS post and I’m glad that I have got my Truck going.  I still need to do a lot of work but that will be later.  For now I’m wanting to get a load of Wood Chips for the garden and compost pile.  I want to say thanks to all that helped me out with this endeavor.   Well there are things that need doing to keep the   BACKYARD HOMESTEADING ACT going so i need to get to them now
