Not sure if South Africa has to worry about passing Emissions or Smog, but here it can be a challenge.
I adjusted the valves, timing and ran some fuel system cleaner through the carb and passed with flying colors.

I am running 35" Goodyear Kevlar MTR's, the first set I had I returned after a couple of hundred miles and having them balanced 3 times. They just would not balance at all. The 2nd set is better but still not perfect. I checked the front wheel bearings (ok), Trunnion bearings (ok) had the alignment checked (fine), replaced the steering box and front spring bushings. All much tighter but still got some vibrations so I decided to try adding some air soft bb's
Like most of my projects...This stuff has been on the shelf for over a year...decided it was time
Hoping 8 ounces per tire will help even things out
hem in through the hole for the mini monster deflators
Refilled in 30 seconds
so far it has helped vibrations up front quite a bit, I am good up to 75 mph, not that I would want to go much faster than that in this old truck anyway..
added an LED to come on with the dome light, should help keep my neighbor from almost hitting me when i am parked on the street. Also added a door pocket out of a 94 4Runnner:
Traded in my Old Dodge 20073/4 ton Mega Cab Turbo Diesel. I would have loved to keep it but the payments were a little steep and it took up a ton of room at the house.
New one is a still a dodge, but gas 5.7l V8, 2003 half ton truck, way easier to get around in and will be paid off in a year or so
