Looks good. Glad to see new fuel hose on there too.

Put the fuel filter inline before the pump, then. It'll keep your pump from getting silt in it.

Dynamite! You can mod the 205 for twin-stick operation!

good idea on putting it in front of the pump! the trucks got a newer gas tank, the gas guage doesnt work though, guy said the ground wire rusted off. hopefully itll be an easy fix.

whats twin-stick?

also found out today that the rear passenger side spark plug boot was not connected. thought this was odd, im pretty sure i would have noticed it before. not sure if it fell off when i was messing with the fuel line or if it has been off all this time and i never noticed it? it runs a lot smoother now... or maybe its just me.

Literally, TWO sticks controlling transfer case operation, instead of one. Control will mimic that of the old Dana 18 (and 20, IIRC). It allows you to do tricks like shift into 2-Low, and (IIRC) FWD. Opens up a new realm of possibilities when offroading. FWIW, the Dana 300 is twin-stick capable, too.

EDIT- there's a pretty good rundown of the mod here. You can buy kits, too.

that is SO cool!!! i read the whole thread. found the page where you can buy the shifters. and even the shift rails. i can grind the old ones but i wonder what happens if you dont grind them good enough? also worried about having both shifters on one bolt, i think it would snap if you pulled it too hard

thank you for showing me that, i think im gonna do it!

it was warm tonight so i decided to take down the sagging head liner. i found a nest in there and poop went everywhere and it made a mess. i got the shop vac out and cleaned everything up. also 2 bees nests in the passenger door jam!

theres quite some rust on the roof (mostly drivers side front corner) and i think i want to fix that before i get a new headliner. im thinking an american flag or eagle would look pretty cool up there.

the glove box is made out of some type of paper fiber and its shot

Yeah, high quality, ain't it?

You could get a sheet of 22-24 ga sheet metal to make yourself a new box. You'd just need the dimensions.

that old box is so mangled up i probably wouldnt be able to measure it. i could find the dimensions online, but i found bronco graveyard sells a plastic one for $27. im going to take some time to think about either making one or buying the plastic one

You should check out your local scrapyard if they sell parts.
If its anything like the one round here chances are good you could find what you need and shouldnt be very expensive.

Technically, "step-side" is the general style for all makers. General Motors produced the "Sportside" and Ford, the "Styleside". Not sure if Dodge ever created a brand name for their step-sides. You'll always see step-side type beds referred to as "Styleside" in Ford truck catalogs.

I should point out that all trucks were originally of the step-side configuration, and that GM and Ford came out with their smooth-side and Styleside models in the 50's.
