    Installed the power steering cooler and aftercooler radiator. Got the new headlights installed, started and bled the p/s system checked for leaks and repaired the ones I found.

    I ran it a bit with the turbo installed but without the piping and it does sound good already

    Engine retarder? I thought that's what you get when you put the distributor at the back of the engine where it's harder to work on the points!:rotflmao

    Since they only list F150 and F250, I guess that means that they don't have one for my Ex Wife. I may not have wanted to pay what they were asking for it, but it's still nice to dream.:(

    My truck is a f350 and it seems to fit fine. Only complaint i have so far is there is 2 notches on the back of the headliner that don't seem to line up with anything and is visible above the perimeter cover. 20201029_174712.png

    Except that mine is a crew cab and they didn't make F250 crew cabs in the Brick Nose days. That's why I stopped looking.

    I have been looking for a headliner for a long time for a crew cab. Mine is an OBS but still I can’t find one anywhere for any body style. My guess is because they are so hard to ship.
