A problem with my headlights came up this week. The headlights would not turn on at all and the high beam indicator light was on whenever I wanted the headlights to come on...... [wall]

After a quick check on the truck, the bulbs were fine and there was nothing wrong with the wiring harness that I could see, so I went on the [typing] to figure it out.

Ended up being a bad ground on the combination switch on the steering column. Will be soldering a new connector on the end and grounding it some place under the dash. Apparently it's a common issue. [eek]

So it looks like the grinding noise I've been having is from the wheel bearings....

Everything else in the drive train has been changed except for the bearings....fml [wall]

Ordering those very soon.

Had some fun with my truck this weekend...NOT

Clutch pedal bracket decided to shit the bed on my way home from work last Friday.

Took everything out and welded it back together, whole job took 5 hours. Buying a new one for $300 wasn't an option.

Clutch feels very different when the bracket is firmly mounted, feels like a new clutch. [king]
