Here is one of the trucks sitting around my yard. It is a 1970 Peterbuilt 359 extended hood. She is in need of some serious TLC, but it runs like a raped-ape. We are hopefully going down to Oregon sometime this month to pick up another one that will be donating a cab and some of the parts we need to fix the hood. Some day she will be pulling the toy hauler that I wish I had.

What are you gonna pull? A 20' super light?:laugh:

Whatever guy, I could pull 10 of those and it wouldn't even break a sweat.:yes:

All the axles are staying on, this truck is probably going to get put to work as well as pull my things around. I have been toying with different ideas for something behind the cab, there is plenty of room there, it has a 265" wheelbase. We may put a little coffin sleeper in there, but then shippers may try and talk you into longer trips and expect you to sleep in the truck.:no: On the other hand, if I can fit a small sleeper and a quad or two in that spot, I can get some dune trips paid for.:yes: First thing is the cab and hood, that will take a little while, but I will try and hurry it up for you MWKE.

My ranger pulls the Rhino which is 1200lbs, my quad which is 365lbs plus the trailer the Rhino is on. The Ranger actually pulls very well, I just need more interior room. The gas mileage sucks too.

Probably takes more force than that to get your shorts over the ginormous arse.:laugh:

We found a cab in northern California for $500, it is from a '69 and it's in pretty good shape but not perfect. Got it up to Roseburg, Oregon where a friend of ours is doing some bodywork on it before we bring it the rest of the way up to WA. No pics now, but there will be plenty when we get the new cab up here and start doing the swap. Now all we need is a grille, hood hinges, fenders, and a bumper.

I have no financial investment in this project. My friend Dave is financing the project, I will just be doing most of the work, which included the drive home, and storage of the pig while it is being worked on. He paid $6,000 for the truck, I don't know if I would have paid it, but it is what he wanted. $500 for a cab and about $250 for an oil change and new wheel studs on the right front, we almost lost a wheel on the way home. About $300 for two one way tickets from Seattle to L.A. and probably another $300 for food and lodging on the way home. So I guess he is into it for about $7350 so far. In exchange for helping him with the project, I will basically have full access to the truck for odd jobs, or whatever, maybe towing a toy hauler to Glamis. In the end we hope to have a clean good looking good running truck. Nothing super fancy, but nice. It runs good and drives good now, it mostly needs a cab, hood and interior work. If you look around, you can find a decent rolling chassis and body for cheap. I saw a '74 in Texas for $1500, it was just a frame, cab w/hood, axles and 6 wheels and tires, but everything was in really good shape.

      Hey I have a 97 bayou 300 2x4 (klf300b) that i bought for 1000 last June and sunk another 1000 into it already.  When i went to look at it, the seller had warmed it up before hand (he was riding it when I got there).  it ran good so i bought it and took it home that evening... next morning it wouldn't hardly start.  I discovered the carb was clogged, there was chunks of rust in the fuel valve, the choke lever was missing and other things.  I have since cleaned the carb and replaced the fuel valve and gas lines and cleaned out the gas tank and cap.  
      Enough background on it, the problem is this:  It floods if i push it past half throttle in 4th and 5th gear even going downhill and shifting correctly.  It also has to idle and warm up when you first start it which is really annoying now that its cold...  It also smokes blue smoke for about 15 seconds when started cold-  does not smoke at all once warm but the exhaust still smells like burnt metal.  A friend told me that it didn't have enough compression.  I also found out that the valves are a common cause for low compression on Kawasakis..  I have never adjusted valves before-  the most I've ever got into a engine was a head gasket on a riding mower so I'm new to this.  My goal is to get this bike running and starting cold like a top-  should i tear down and rebuild the top end?  What should i try first?  I tore the carb apart and rebuilt it and fiddled with the air screw and nothing changed.  I also ordered a compression test kit that should be coming in soon.

      Ive also considered just selling it for like $500 and taking the hit-  Id rather not sink too much more into this machine..  lol

      I live in Vancouver Washington but don't have many riding options so I head to Bend Oregon there is a ATV park called East Fort Rock that offers 315 Miles of trails.  I have flexibility to ride during the week (which I prefer) rather then weekends if anyone wants to ride let me know I can be reached at [email protected] it is about a 3hr drive but I don't mind making it as long as the Government Camp pass is not snowing or iced in.

      Is there a magnet on the outside of the rotor/flywheel that works in conjunction with the pick up coil.  Or is it a different type of metal that changes the impedance to have the pickup coil do it's thing?  I'd assume that most othe Yamaha's use a similar operation.  Thanks,  Don't see anything about it in the service manual.  Don't see anyway to adjust the gap between the pickup coil and the flywheel.

      Hi guys new to the forum. I have a 2014 honda foreman 500. It started to lose power and misfire eventually stalls. It's hard to restart. When it does start it will stall when hitting the throttle. Smells like its getting fuel. I drained and put new fuel in tank but still same issue. I check for codes and have a code29 IAVC circuit. I'm pretty sure I set this code when I drained the tank. I disconnected it when I removed fuel line from injector. I used the fuel pump to drain the last couple ounces out of tank and also to check fuel volume. I did clear the code but have to ride it around property to see if it or any other code generates. I'm thinking an ignition issue. I was wondering if anyone else out there has had a similar problem with their foreman. I realize its hard to fix something without being in front of it but any advise would be appreciated.
      Thanks

      Hello, Everyone first time here, I appreciate this opportunity, I have a 97 polaris sportsman 500 that I just acquired, been sitting awhile ,would not turn over with a new battery, replaced the starter, got it to turn over, but no fire, replaced the coil, cdi box, new spark plug, spark plug wire and boot, still no fire, So I changed out the stator, boom I have Fire, Carburetor was in bad shape ,so I installed a new carburetor, a new fuel pump and filter and all new hoses, and before I tried to start it I cleaned the fuel tank, well here we go, It started right up idled like a brand new one, Idled for about 10 seconds and died, fired right back up idled great and revved up great, but in 10 seconds it died, fired right back up, this time I held the throttle about half throttle, and it kept running, but when I let off it died, so I then adjusted the throttle cable from all the way tight to all the way loose, and vise versa, still the same thing, Please somebody help, cause I'm bout to give it the HAMMER TEST.
