Default Fuel line fixes, and a $26 exhaust system (Very DIY)
So I noticed someone had crunched the fuel line feeding into the carburetor, I've seen this with one other vehicle I owned, a 1977 Oldsmobile Delta 88. Not sure how or why it happened on the Dodge, but I guess on the Olds they where trying to replace the fuel filter built into the Q-jet.

Either way, it was leaking, and this is what I did to fix it.


Part number for the barbed fitting is in the description and the video. This truck leaks more than something built by British Leyland

Also did a fuel line patch at the back of the truck a while back, here ya go:


And lastly, my $26 exhaust system:


This has been a fun daily beater, and it's only gonna get better.

Update on everything else done to the truck coming soon, maybe tomorrow, I gotta figure out why my freshly mounted 4 year old BFGoodrich Trail T/A went flat, I think my spare wheel is too rusty. Anyone got a five slot Dodge chrome wheel like my truck has? I'd love to have a matching spare.
