    Installed a 7' plow on my 90 2500 work truck. How much of a PITA it is to install that hunk of steel. Got the plow for cheap installing it was another story. Lots of cussing and foul mouthing and a BFH to get it done. Its an old school plow with manual side to side. Will be painting it bright yellow next week.

    Replaced rear drums and shoes. Installed larger wheel cylinder (designed for dually) much better braking. Old shoes were slick, hard as glass and severely cracked. Old drums had worn down so much I had to use the adjuster to bring the shoes in because of the groove to get the drums off. PITA pushing out the lock mechanism in order to turn the adjuster know backwards.
    I wanted to do junkyard disc brake upgrade, but all the donor vehicle were already stripped clean and I needed brakes badly as the rears would completely lock up when wet.
    Glad it's done.

    Pulled the heads off my motor, going to be installing a set of ProMaxx 64cc chamber aluminum cylinder heads.

    Also, I'm not using the intake in the picture with the heads, installing a Summit Racing Stage 3 Air Gap style manifold instead. IMG_1557[1].JPG YCUG5081[1].JPG
