    I was attempting to recharge the A/C in the truck this morning before heading off to work, but I kept getting interrupted, so it was a no go.... ran out of time. Maybe tomorrow?

    Good Morning!
    Never did get that A/C recharged... apparent restriction on the suction side of the system... bad Schrader or clogged Expansion Valve.
    A/C is working, but it's taking forever to recharge... Contrary to popular belief, I do have a life, so I ordered a new Exp. valve this morning just to be on the safe side before taking it all down again.

    Great Video Bob!
    Heading north this weekend... time to mow the lawn again.
    Found another project on the truck in the form of a power steering fluid leak. Input shaft seal needs to be replaced. It's only an $8.00 fix, but you still have to get to it. I'm going to replace the original Mopar shaft coupler with a Borg 0940 steering shaft assembly while I'm there.

    Two items of bomb mechanic humor for today... found these this week while maintaining other things.

    I have seen those orange plugs in roll pins on Mopars before, not sure why there. Keep the dirt out maybe?

    New expansion valve has arrived, so I'll have A/C again here shortly. Just have to find another block of time to get it done.
    Still waiting on the reseal kit for the input shaft, but the new Borgeson 000940 steering shaft is due to arrive tomorrow.

    The orange plug sticking out is just that... no roll pin to be found. That will be remedied when the new shaft arrives.

    After swapping out all four bolts, I found the two missing bolts for that forward drive shaft sitting up inside the crossmemeber. Apparently someone was dissembling or reassembling that joint at one time or another, and got distracted after the second bolt. Either that, or these bolts fly to safety when they fall out, so they won't get lost.

    I borrowed my buddy Remy's Topside Creeper this morning to aide in the removal and installation of the Expansion Valve for the A/C, and the Rag Joint for the steering shaft, both of which are out there in the wide open, but difficult to reach unless your laying on top of the engine. Montana is just to dang tall when it comes to reaching anything back there near the firewall.

    Sure looks like a roll pin in the picture but maybe something else holding it together. Good move on Borgusen upgrade.

    71 degrees here now at 1pm

    You were right on both counts brother!
    I pulled that plug this morning, and it is definitely purpose built. Looks like you push it through on one side till it stops, then you finish tapping it into the pin for a nice snug fit. Not sure what the purpose is exactly since the fat section is much shorter than the roll pin itself. May have to look that one up.
    Either way, once the plug was removed it was clear that there was a roll pin in there, especially when viewed from the back side where the full body of the plug sat.

    Montana's new Borgeson Telescoping Steering Shaft showed up yesterday as well. Just waiting on that $5 reseal kit now, so I can repair the steering fluid leak at the steering gear input shaft.
