Ya ....I retired in 2010, but with 2 roller cabinets full of special tools  I'm not about to change brands! Been driving them since 1969! Paint scheme is the same as the one I flew as a kid....only the green was updated from the original dark forest green.

Me too!

Do you have any special tools for A-833 transmissions?

I have to replace the 318 in my ‘72 pickup very soon with a 360 that I built. Probably would be a good time to freshen up the trans at the same time. My 2-3 synchro needs some love.

The Satan looks good!

Wouldn't think your gonna need much in the way of special tools for that job. I have a rust free 78 Powerwagon  I put a built 360 in 15 yrs. ago when I worked in a shop in Montana. 4 speed 3/4 ton. The rest is all original. About 1500 mi on it since. Most of that was driving it from western Mt. To Minnesota! Was sold at the dealership in the town I worked in. I'm the second owner!

The A-833 is a manual. I removed the 727 because like you I am not much into automatics.

The power wagons are nice and the last year of that grille style. My 72 has some surface rust but very minor. Paint to come soon.

That’s the only pic I have of mine at the moment. Would love to see a picture of the power wagon.

Ya I edited my post...was trying to troubleshoot  3 things at once here!   Guess I've entered the age of confusion!   Last rust free 72 I ever saw was at the shop I worked at in Mt. No salt on the roads out there!  They just spread rocks on it! They call it sand!  HA!  Everything we drove had rock guards on the headlights,and the auto glass places did a booming business in windshields! Wow!..and yours is a stepside to boot!

Wow! I feel like I left a bit off that model!

I just showed my wife "my old plane." She said the same thing..."Wow!" Followed by "It didn't look that good when you had it."

"Gee, thanks Honey."
"Gee, thanks Steve."

It really looks great. I like your finishing touches!

Ha,! You know me Jim...have to tinker! I fear the wing covering will not make it past its first belly landing. It's getting very brittle. Humidity is low in my abode and it already split once along a rib. When it needs it I think I will be learning how to iron on vinyl covering!

I will never part with my Dodge trucks. My blue  93 was the last year for the first gen has 402K miles on her on the original engine. I changed the trans at 220K. The rear was rebuilt at 170k and is now showing signs once again of needing a pinion bearing. The gold 87 is my favorite, it drives and handles better than my 2010. Not as fast, but it's no slouch. Unfortunately, the late eighties had ups and downs with the early pre dated computer systems using the lean/burn setups. I finally had enough of it and ripped all of it out. no more smog pump, air pipes into the head or that stupid vacuum advance distributor computer that was used. Last week , I caught the bucket of a backhoe and damaged the bumper causing it to cave in the qtr panel losing my molding. The truck has never been hit until now. Remember this ? Dscn2917

Nice line up Ken! We have 3 currently. My 98 1500 w/magnum 5.2 4x4 the 78 Power wagon,and the wife just bought a 2012 4x4 1500 quad cab with a 5.7 hemi  that had only 38k miles on it. Looks showroom fresh! Traded in her 2004 shortbox  2wd  that had 200k on it. She had a '90 Dakota that had 300k on it when we traded it for the 98. All trouble free miles! I also have an 85 Grand Wagoneer  I got when I worked at the truck shop in Mt . Second owner,and rust free......until a couple winters in Minnesota!
Bummer about your 87!!  I'd be getting right on that! It would bug me to no end!

I had a full bed 1990 D-150 with 3.9L V-6. It had throttle body fuel injection, very simple only 2 injectors, got 17 mpg, very reliable, something they did right I'm guessing finally.

It was an ex-fed gov pickup with 60,000 miles from White Sands Missile Range. I didn't know until I picked up the paperwork for after winning a gov auction. Oddly it had parts from 1989. I found this out when it came time for repair parts to fit, wasn't in the 1990 model at parts stores. I guess that in order to underbid the competition during contract bid time, that it was a convenient way to liquidate earlier year parts.

I had 246,000 miles on it when I got rid of it, still not burning a drop of oil. Seemed that V-6 and 3 speed automatic with locking torque converter were bullet proof.

Now I drive around an even simpler manual shift 1999 Chevrolet S10 base model pickup with 2.2L 4 cylinder without air con. It too has been ultra reliable, now have 165,000 miles on it.

Being a government owned vehicle I wouldn’t be surprised if the guys at motorpool/trans swapped in parts they had laying around that fit instead of purchasing correct year model parts. I have seen my share of motorpool fixes over the years just to keep things going on the cheap.

Nowadays we lease everything. It’s expensive and heaven forbid you should ever dent one.

Just ran into that on my 98 Ram 1500 that needed a trans cooler line. Parts store said I had no such part! Had to take a picture and show them. They said ,no such part ! So I found the Dorman part online and had the parts store order it.  Turns out it was listed as a part for a Jeep grand Cherokee! ...Torques me off that I have to do thier job as well  to get parts! Had the same problem with the parts department at work!

The only truck I have ever owned a GMC Sonoma.  Really liked it.  

Bought it to build a deck and haul carpet and drywall to build in the loft.  Worked it hard over a two year span.  Wish I had just tossed a blanket over it, tucked it away in the garage and forgot about it, but not!.  Loaded it with decking that sat it down on the axles and drove 23 miles home looking up at the sky.  V6 top of the line but it leaked oil like I had a well.

Only Dodge I ever drove was a 1941 four door.  When I used the clutch I couldn't see over the steering wheel.  Drove it to school and back.  Dad never knew.

A little bit of razor and sanding block time would have the Wido Satan ready for new covering.
Then dope and tissue in a blink!

Been a while so the gray matter is a bit fuzzy, but from what I recall, in this case it was suspension parts, things that motorpools don't usually mess to fit like the frame base. It was a GSA vehicle too.

I remember the GSA Corsica's with BIA. Had a problem with losing OEM hubcaps. Those we were told cost $115 each back in 1993. Back then there were still a lot of Navajo Reservation roads that were dirt. BIA would only lease a few SUV's / pickups. I told our motor vehicle clerk a possibility is we take one of the cars missing a hubcap, then use the other 3 hubcaps to fix others missing a hubcap, then buy a kit of 4 generics from the autoparts stores for under $30 then and put them on that one Corsica. Idea had merit and we could have probably pulled it off.

"Remember this" sorta' turned into a Mopar thread.. somehow.. Smile  I had two B-300-Tradesman vans.. back in the early-mid 80's. A "74" camper-conversion and a "75".. both window-vans with dual-hinged side/rear doors. 318 CI V8 auto 727 trans.

Yesterday afternoon I stopped-off after work for weekend-spirit replenishment..  Smile at the store down the road.. (they're an "essential-business" don't ya' know..) I parked beside a big Dodge pick-up. A dually with a Cummins diesel.

The owner was in front of me.. (6' in front of me) in the check-out line. I spoke to him... and told him that he had a nice Dodge truck. He replied that it was a 2011.. and that he had a 2017 Ford F350 too. I told him that I have several awesome Cox engines. Very Happy

Hey..my thread.....no problemmo! My other hobby!  Thread drifts are fun! Wanna see the car I have under the cover thats parked in front of my truck in the pic? My fault...the paint I used on my plane sidetracked me! We had two cummins diesel shop trucks where I worked in Mt. Bulletproof and awesome mileage fully loaded and pulling scrap trailers with junked vehicles to the salvage yard. One had a bad accident pulling a trailer and I had to replace the cab. THAT was a project.....started with a salvage yard bare cab!
