No, I need to get the passenger side moved back up where it should be.

And, I just calculated my gas mileage......................8 mpg.

sounds like some maitenance should be done. filters, plugs, wires, MAF, etc. I've seen people with the 5.0L getting close to what i get, 17MPG

Made a run to plumbing supply for some schedule 40 4" pvc and a rubber connector . Plugged drain to cesspool backed up the down stairs bathroom. Quick and dirty long carry is to tie off to the side of the bed and a gentle tie to the side mirror. Cut pipe to fit coupled it to good orangeburg drain , back filled 6 'L x 1'D long. Crisis averted.

Mine has the old school 5.0L. No MAF, no computer, no injectors. It's carbureted. It came out of a 78 Mustang. So far I've adjusted the idle and done an oil change. Fuel filter was put on just before I got it. I know I should be getting alot better, but I can't figure out what I need to do to get there. Seeing how mines bored, cammed, and has had head work performed.

WOW, well the bored, cammed, and head work can take away MPGs, especially if you really open up the throttle

i thought my water pump was leaking but it was the hose attached to the water pump that needed to be replaced, so i brought anouther hose $16 and then i put in the new heater core i had and that was really easy. i didnt have to rip out the dash like i thought, so now i have to put a DPFE sensor in because my truck runs like shit because i havent replaced it yet. so im buying one at autozone -the metal on- for about $66 bucks

Seafoamed my truck today. Put 1/3 in the brake booster and 1/3 in the tank. Still gotta do the oil part of it. Wasnt to much smoke surprisingly and the truck seems to run better now.

Installed 2 jvc speakers in the front, sounds better and I can get door rattle now

Did the fog light mod also

Fixed my miss reading oil pressure gauge just to have it spin around and have it get stuck again. What causes that? Faulty sensor?
