Funday Morning ~ Redneck Ingenuity

 





I'll be damned, that looks like my Troy-Bilt Generator.





Thanks Alex

Good stuff. 2 lug nuts won't get you very far though, in fact three won't get you very far either.

Experience talking?

Antidote said...

I’ve been wanting a four inch lift on my truck.😂

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Kid, there's four. They're just missing washers and nuts ... LOL.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Anitidote, I like to think there's a little redneck in all of us.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Antidote, well there you go then. Glad to help.

Antidote said...

Wonder what the amp rating is on the bolts in the fuse block?😂

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Antidote, way up there I'm sure. I'll bet blue flashes are not uncommon.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Unknown, I've threatened to put one of those on the drain of my hot water tank on the motorhome.

Odie, them bolts make better in-line fuses than .22 LRs.
Especially when they get a little warm!

I had a 72 F100 that had over 300k on it that had saggy springs on the back. I took a 1.5" piece of angle iron and beat it about 3 inches on ether side thin welded it to the lower spring. It did the trick, it stiffened up the ride and it increased the load weight to about 1000 pounds. I sent a piston through the oil pan not long after. It got a built 351 Windsor as a replacement. The transmission blew up two week later. Once the tranny was replaced the rear end went out a month later. I learned the lesson about doubling the HP and tq where the weakest link would break. After replacing the rear end with a F250 unit that was re-lugged to the F100 bolt pattern with most of the F250 springs I had a strong truck. It had a top speed of 118 mph which it could hit about two car lengths before reaching a quarter mile. It was a high 12 second runner in the quarter. I learned the power of a sleeper. I paid for a quarter of college racing that truck.

Proof, you could be right, but look at the fun we'd miss.

tsquared, thanks for the laughs. I was never a car guy, and would have bought a new truck.
