Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Went to visit my truck at the body shop. It's been gone for 2 months now and I'm going crazy! I didn't have time to really tune it before getting it running and taking it to the shop. At 31 seconds you can hear the cam but the idle is a little slow. I pulled the PS belt off just before dropping it off. Makes for fun in tight spaces.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

I started rebuilding the carb yesterday and just ordered my Jeep coil springs today. Time to drop it and get it on the road. I would say "roadworthy" but that is a llloooonnnnggg stretch. But driveable is a start...

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

I ordered a blower hole cover to go along with my heater delete. Also got a gauge panel from an old conversion van... I have an idea I'm working on.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

I did some cleanup work on the camper to/cap, collected the new timber from the wood yard for it (bottom rails that it sits on are rotten) and then got dragged into gardening. That said I've been cleaning up under my new tarp garage that the truck will live in as soon as the cap is repaired, cleaned up the weeds between the 200 odd year old cobbles in there so it should be a bit dryer and cleaner.







This is the before picture!





This week the wheels are going off to have the tyres refitted with new valves as three out of the four go down over the space of a couple of weeks, then hopefully I'll find some time to drain the five year old gas out of the tank and replace it with fresh. Then I'm ordering a new battery and starter.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

Well, not all today, but over the past week or so with a little (well a lot) of help.

Installed EPWI 1.6/1.5 roller rockers.
Installed Edelbrock aluminum valve covers.
Ran, cut, constructed boots, and installed MSD Street zero resistance plug wires.
New belts and hoses all around.
New SFI 29.1 fly wheel.
Installed N&N Air Filter.

Tomorrow - installing 700R4, level 3 transmission.
installing switch on factory A/C so compressor does not run all the time.

coming up next few weekends:
New cab mounts.
Front suspension rebuild, ball joints, bushings, tie rods,
1" spacer between carb and intake manifold
run new fuel line from fuel pump to carb

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

I put a "new" to me glove box in my 67, it was one of two that came with the 70 GMC 'burb we just hauled home. Started taking out the 4 speed in the burb to put into my 67. No I didn't take pics LOL.

Re: What did you do to your truck today!

I installed a ECE hidden hitch setup on my 71. My 8 year old son was the perfect assistant to get the job done. It took a few hours to get the holes drilled but it turned out really cool.
