I drove it to work, then the gas station, then home. It's pulling daily driver duty this week while the new Ram is at the body shop.

Good question...They came with the truck and have no markings other than a chevy emblem. They are quality though as the parts that hold the wires are all metal and they slide together nice and tight. No brittle plastic here!

These are the type that bolt to lower BBC valve cover and hold the wires just above the headers.

That is what I have been looking for. I have the OEM style plastic ones that slide over the tabs welded to the stock valve covers but I don't like them with the headers.

Those are quality looms. I had them for over 20 years on an Impala SS. Not a daily mind you, but with a little wipe-down at the start of each year they looked like new.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Went to start mine for the first time in about 6 weeks. I had to make some repairs to the electrical in that time as the external regulator harness was chaffed so I installed the solid state regulator and a new pigtail. Fixed the tail light wiring and painted the inside of the housings gloss white for some better light reflection and new lenses. Perfect let's start it...NOPE! Heavy fuel smell, leaking from a crap connection where PO had cut hard line at the pump and put in a piece of rubber hose to connect the two. OK got that done and new line ordered. Get home from work the next day to a puddle of fuel on the driveway from under the cab. Truck had two saddle tanks back in the day and removed before I got it. But the hard lines from them to the selector valve were still in it with the valve. In-cab tank was plumbed to the valve still and the rubber line from the tank to the selector valve hard line was rotted and leaking. Ripped it all out in 30 minutes and installed a new line with a metal canister filter between the tank and the hard line inside the frame. Just in time for a torrential downpour and two more days of work with rain...I just want to start it now and make sure I have all the fuel line good.

Of course rain still pervades here in NorCal (we need it bad though) and I discovered this truck had 5/16" fuel lines for the 350 from the factory so new hard lines and sender ordered to replace the old ones and hopefully prevent any starvation (has Edelbrock carb/intake on it). I'm going out on limb though and guessing the fuel pump will need replacing (Merry Christmas to me) since that's my luck. If I don't get it running as is, it will remain a driveway queen until after Christmas. I feel mission creep coming on as the radiator and heater core are also suspect, those hoses look really shady right now and it's pouring outside once again.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Well yesterday actually, I ran up to Cooper Restorations and picked up a few odds and ends for my 68. So I guess you could say I did something "for" my truck instead of "to" it. LOL Here's a link to Jeffs web site hes a good guy to do business with.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Drove it over to the "local" pick-your-part to see if I could find a replacement seat. No joy. The wife wanted to know why I don't just put it back to stock looking. $97 for a decent replacement, or $900 for the factory look, plus my labor. She understands that sort of economic decision!
