    I'm right outside Leavenworth and would be glad to take a look at your travelall and answer some questions for you. I'm no expert, but am working on a very similar pickup right now. Zack 913-731-6715

    I took my two fuel tanks in today to a place in downtown Leavenworth. They're charging me $100 per tank to clean all the rust and seal it. I'm looking forward to getting them back and installed.

    I'm wanting to get my front and back seat reupholstered but may front seat may not be original. Any idea where I can find one at?
    Thanks.

    I took her out a few days ago and by the time I got back home, I was pushing my break pad all the way to the floor to get her to stop. This surprised me because prior to that, my breaks were doing well. So, do I need a break job or what do you think is wrong?
    Thanks for any help,
    Joe

    Visual checks would be the best place to start. Check brake fluid level, if it's low start looking for where it's leaking. Lines along the frame, over the rear axle, backing plates for a wheel cyl leak etc.

    back window.jpg I'm wanting to work on my window and back tailgate and I'm needing to get it open. The electrical doesn't work yet so there is no way for me to lower the window. Can I manually lower the window by taking the cross piece ( X ) off?
    Thank you for your help,
    Joe

    back window switch1.jpg I was wondering if someone can help me figure out my switch for the back window. Here is a picture of what I got and where it is going. I don't see any wires that are going back and I'm certain that I'm not getting any power to it. What am I doing wrong and what do I have to do to get my window to work?
    Thanks!

    Use a battery, wires, and jumper cables hooked directly to the window motor and see if it will lower. This will also let you know if the motor is good. This would be my first choice.
    You could take the linakge/motor loose to get your rear window to lower.
    No matter which method you use watch out for your fingers so they don't get pinched.

    There should be a safety switch on the ( left?) side of the gate for the window motor. If the gate isn't real tight sometimes the switch isn't pushed in enough . Since you're having a issue with the toggle switch at the dash, do you have the key for the gate? The gate key is not a lock, it's also for the window. You could try having someone push in on the side of the gate while you hit the switch and see if you get lucky with the window going down.
    If not, you can pop off the two round clips on the top off the bracket at the window frame. Push the end in and lower the glass to get the gate open for further tests. Best to have some extra hands and as mentioned always watch the finger tips in the process.

    I will try both suggestions. I do not have the gate key, as it is not the same as the ignition. I just tried it and it doesn't work. Would a locksmith be able to get a key made for the gate?

    Also,if the window is not all the way down,the gate will not open,it pushes on the rod in the left side of your picture,to alow the gate to open.

    There should be one of those on the left side also,they connect to 2 wound spring things on the inner panel,they help close the gate(Its very heavy)Sorry I don't know the wireing,my 68 is in pieces right now,as its been for atleast 18 years.

    I figured since my girl turned 50 this year I'm going to start spending more time and money on her. I took the bench seats out today and will get them reupholster. Took out the old floor mat too, figured she deserves a new one. The floor pans are pretty bad, I'm going have to replace them. The problem is I don't weld very good. Use to weld on the farm growing up but it on the plow or disc where it wasn't that important how good the weld looked.
    Anyone know of good welder in the KC area?

    Here's a picture of the driver's side and passenger. There's some rust but not sure it would justify using a full floor pan. The driver's side floor was wet (probably everytime it rained) due to the door gasket being as hard as a rock.

    Look up under the dash,they usually leak from the vent area that rust out from not being painted in that area,plus holds dirt and rusts out.
