I was lookin for andy too but didnt see him.

I didn't go on the cruise because my truck was not happy. Besides an annoying header gasket leak and an alternator that decided to lose all its fan blades (not sure how the hell that happened), the truck developed a low speed death wobble about half hour into my trip, and about 45 minutes into the trip, that damn eddy carb decided it no longer wanted to have properly functioning idle air circuits again. It was a pain in the ass to drive at city speeds.

There's a couple pictures of me pulling into the place though.

It hurts me to read that you are having these troubles with that old truck. Clearly it has become more trouble than it is worth. To save you from any more aggravation I will come up there and haul it off for you. I won't even charge you any money, I will do this out of the goodness of my heart. ;)

Lol, yeah ok.

After getting home and inspecting the front end, it turns out that the frame rail (at steering box) was flexing due to two popped rivets, the steering stabilizer is shot, and the biggest cause of the wobble is just the front spring bushings. The left front poly bushing has deteriorated and the spring can move forward/aft about 3/8", which is bad news with the push and pull type steering.
