Truck ride!

I pulled out of the driveway last night and cruised the neighborhood for a little while. And again this morning. On the way home today the truck stalled. It restarted easily and I got home without any other problems.

I don't know what happened. Probably driver error. I was pulling up a small hill and it acted like it was not getting gas. Could be almost out of gas. The gauge does not seem to work. Hopefully that is all it is.

I am seriously considering tearing into the rear brake lines. I want to remove the busted one and see if I could make a replacement for it myself. I can buy one for about $30. A cheap flaring tool costs about that much. But I need to replace fuel lines, too. If the same flaring tool will work, it would be cheaper in the long run to do it myself.

I bought a cheap flaring tool at harbor freight for about $10. I have used it a few times and my buddy Mr. Wallen used it to redo the rear brakes on his '70 charger.

Now you are talking. Got a new HF about 2 miles from here!
