How about starting there?

The world is full of problems. I picked this one to try to solve. If you want to help her with tires, the door is open..

Is there a FB page that we can donate items? I have various sets of tires and a winch.

She is stumped right now. From her FB page.

My engine rebuild is stalled until such time as I can get someone here who knows their way around computer controlled early 1990s Ford distributors. And I need a set of new tyres before I take the truck outside my 100 mile tow area. I'm running 255/85-16 BFG Mud Terrains that are too far worn to take anyplace. A week or so before the engine blew one of my tyres picked up a screw type nail and I was told the tyre was too worn to legally patch. I need to save up for a new set of KM3s

The problem here is that 255/85-16 is a rapidly disappearing size. KM2s are still around.

Can people who dug in before to help and new people who haven't please send a few dollars each to her via Paypal. Either anonymously or share your email with her.

Thanks

From TW: 18 Sept, evening update:
Timing set, brakes bled. Oil pressure comes up very quickly and look good. Battery back on charger.

Tomorrow I'll try to figure out why it is not charging. New alternator, it charged the two times I sorta got it started when the timing was way off. My first guess is early alternator failure.

Even with generous donations from others this project put me way in the hole and I can't do much traveling without new tyres so I'm still a homebody for a few more months yet. But at least I will be able to take my dog to the dog park
