Re: Driver's side headlight won't light

Get a test light and start tracing back the wire.
Check the test light at the battery to make sure the test light works.
This little check first will save hours of checking. Don't ask how I know.

I agree with everything that Pep just said. It's all about location, location, location. When driving down the highway, the passerby does not know about the pump just a mile or two down the road. It might cost the saving for the extra miles. The big difference between the prices across the street is...

Re: HELP ... Loose Steering

For me, it was a combination of things.
I had my grandson wiggle the wheel from side to side.
Traced the movement down to the point it didn't wiggle.
After each fix the wiggle was less than less and the issue was in a different part.
Don't skimp or short cut the fixes.

Are the rear spring the same between Ts?
Will a small drum mount up to a set of springs that came off of '26/'27?

Re: brake pedal movement

Pulling the hand brake move the foot break just a little bit.
This put engages the clutch and the truck is in neutral.
The hand brake engages the rear brakes at the wheels.
The foot brake engages the transmission brake.
