Hi yall, my name is Pete from south central KY. Been reading posts for a while, and searching for a D100 to bring home! Finally bought a 69 longbed out of Tennessee. It has been in the shop for the last 2 weeks, got many problems, but I hope to get it back on the road soon. The truck was a Forest Service truck from new with only 3 options, 318, 727, and 1250 LB front springs. A Chrysler pushbutton AM radio was added soon after delivery. I removed this and put the block-off plate back in [was still in the glove box after all these years!] Somebody painted my truck 1969 "Pine Green" from the original Medium Green, but I bought it anyway. Its pretty straight, has some rust too, but I plan to drive and enjoy it and use it as a truck some [no manure hauling]. Oh, it also came with 2 build sheets, a sheet showing how it was built and invoiced [kind of looks like a window sticker]. Can someone out there in the forum PLEASE tell me the part # for the original radiator on this truck. I have exhausted every source I could find, with no luck. Would like to put a correct Chrysler radiator on it. Thank you all for reading, and thanks for letting me join your forum!

It is pretty uncommon to find original paperwork. It would be interesting to see if you want to post it.

Will do soon as I get it back. Fuel system was major messed up from sitting. The job was out over my skill level. Will be a driver soon! Next job: radiator replaced with a correct Chrysler unit.

Been trying to post pictures of my paperwork, [thru Google] always get a "file too large" message. Any advice/suggestions on this, from anyone with picture upload experience? Thanks all

This site will only accept an attachment of 256 KiB or smaller.

Read this first:
viewtopic.php?f=15&t=23632

And if your image is too large:

It may not be easy for a computer novice but here is what I do:

Open the full size photo off the camera with MS Paint. That is assuming you have a computer with MS paint.

Go to the toolbar at the top and select Resize. It may say stretch/skew on some versions of Paint.

Then resize by percentage. It will depend on what the original picture size is as to what you choose for a percentage. This site will allow a maximum of 256 KiB, what that really means in terms of picture size I don't know. I did a test and determined that a picture 900 x 650 pixels will work. Paint will tell you how many pixels it is at the bottom of the page. It will also tell you how many KiB it is after you save it. If you have a picture that is wider but not as tall or vice versa you can make it that way as long as you keep the size under 256KiB.

Then go to file, save as, JPEG or JPG and choose where you want to save it on your computer. I usually save it to the desktop but you could put it in photos. Make sure the photo is named.

Then you post it here using the new smaller photo that you saved.

Your other option would be to use a photo hosting site and put a link on this site.

I have crummy internet out here in the hinterlands and resizing pictures is a major time hole.

The way I've worked around it is by taking all my pictures with my old IPhone, and then sending them to myself in an Email from the phone. The IPhone asks if I want to send the picture "full size" or gives me three other options of size. I choose the one that''s under 250 KB and hit send.

Then when I'm in the house, I open my mail on the IPad and there are my pictures...all sized just right for posting.
I open the email, click on the picture to open it, then hold on the picture to open up the "save" feature. Save the picture. And then when I post here I browse for the picture and it's the right size.

Yes, it's a work around,...but hey, I'm not into vintage trucks and cars for the convenience either....
Haha

Thanks guys for the advice. I will try again with resized pics. Been sending them to Google pics in full size. Funny aint it, how we love old vehicles, but live in the modern world with all this wonderful tech! :usa

You can get a picture resizer app for your phone and be able to easily re-size your pics and just post from your phone. I have a galaxy s8-plus and I do everything from my phone.
