    problem solved, gremlin chased away.


    mechanic called as he was on a quiet, no knock while braking problem. issue he said was resolved by turning the brand new rotor a 2000th, nothing really.


    no knock, no charge.



    who does that?

    moral of the story…"walking brake pads" require a rotor turn and the problem will be over and my rotor was brand new with a "fast grind".


    GET IN THE GAME KIDZ!


    fuc.

    whoever said changing a heater core in this was easy is a fucking liar…all day to get the rotten one out and a new one bought, just finished getting the new one in, but jebuz i have another 1/2 a day re-installing the damn shroud and figuring out where 2097 screws go…and then there is the ducting, new heater hoses and coolant to do…fuc.

    drove to work on friday, defroster blaring away and my damn windows were condensating inside…couldn't see a fucking thing driving down the road.


    anywhoze, thats the last one of those i will ever do again.

    watched a few youtube clips and loved the one guy who said it took him 4 hours as a novice mechanic. hell, it takes me 2 hours just to find 2 sets of tools for removal. I must have walked 5 miles back and forth from the garage to the street where the truck was. then i had to lower the front passenger wheel well skirt for access to one fucking shroud mounting stud, which i promptly snapped off cuz it's 45 years old. oh yeah, i have A/C so there 3 more hidden fasteners…then there the ducting shit on the driver side that fell out for no reason while i was cussing at the temp controls and how they work. oh yeah, then there was that decayed little 1/8 inch tubing i ripped out and aint replacing cuz i don't care.

    lolz.

    so the trucks all back together and heaters kicking ass, but not w/o 1 more curve ball tossed at me…no blower motor and no heat thru the defroster vents until i tapped into this youtube clipper…





    of course my trucks to old for resistors or whatever that guy talked about. I did however take his advice and went out and hammered on the blower motor in my truck and the fucker kicked on.


    whatever…it's blowing heat now.

    fuc…when it rains it's pours.


    charging system failure requires immediate attention.


    gen or bat…either one or both?



    my style of auto mechanic prowess says change em both out at the same time….set of belts to boot and your ready to GO!

    @mrwallace2ku
    you should be able to take it to Auto Zone or similar parts stores and they will hook it up and let you know which one it is.

    Advanced Auto Parts even installs the battery for you, although they are crap and don't last.
