I'm going with 89 on this one. Truck was running fine until that night it went below zero. It has to have something to do with the truck not running right now.

He's right. Soak it hard for days and days. When they put in those tubes, the Japanese engineers never expected anyone to take them out almost 30 years later. This is surgery for sure.

If you are going to use some type of sealer, don't use the permanent type. Believe it or not, I like using 90W gear oil on the threads and leaving it at that. The reason is because if you have to...

Looks pretty stock and standard cab. Has chrome mirrors though. Manual? AC? What options on it? If you are doing the chain and cover, might want to consider the Mr Jim chain tensioner.
