So, to be safe, all u-joints and that bearing will be replaced.
     That was a big $770 for all the repairs in May.  Now a pause in the truck spending until late June.  Smiley

...u-joints being inspected and replaced if necessary...
     The two in-line driveshafts were checked, and out of 3 universal joints, one was questionable, and the center carrier bearing between the driveshafts needed to be replaced.  So, to be safe, all u-joints and that bearing will be replaced.
     Last week I received a new, 4-row, shiny aluminum radiator from BrothersTrucks.com.  What a thing of beauty (in a machine sense)!  As soon as I can get some time, I'll dig under the hood, haul out the old, 3-row radiator, and install the new one along with a new thermostat.

    When I visited New Zealand in late February, A-EON's Trevor Dickinson showed me the autobiography of singer Debbie Harry, "Face It: A Memoir".  He said that in the book she mentions the night of the Amiga 1000 premiere of which she was a big part.  Now I'll have to buy the book and find out what she exactly says!  Smiley

Power brake booster still needs to be replaced; the original has power braking on the first brake press but loses power with an immediate, consecutive brake press.
     The brake booster was replaced a few months ago, and now when I step on the pedal hard, the truck locks it brakes... just the way it's supposed to.  Smiley
     Right now the truck is in Stockton Autocare for more work to get it ready for the freeway.  The fuel sending unit is being replaced so I can have a working gas gauge, right rear inner fender brace support is being tack-welded on (so the brace can be attached), u-joints being inspected and replaced if necessary, cigarette lighter socket (power outlet) being fixed, and mysterious banging sound under the cab (when I turn at slow speeds) being investigated.

My dear C= and Ami comrades,
     Due to the ongoing pandemic crisis and the unavailability of our meeting place venue, the May 9 meeting of the Southern California Commodore & Amiga Network has been cancelled.
     In the meantime, I've been updating my Amigas, Ultimate 64, and various other Commodores.  I hope you all are well and have been keeping busy.

          Truly,

     With so many people out-of-work and now needing food, I made my first contribution to FeedingAmerica.org

          They accept Paypal, too,
