    Wow Hank! That looks too nice.......do you serve hot meals there? All joking aside that engine compartment is really sweet. I notice that the hood supports are different from what is on my truck. What year is yours? I hope we get a chance to meet and talk....we are fairly close to each other. And yes I will take all the help and advice I can get. Jeff......off to start giving it a closer look.

    Thanks Guys; I will post pics when I have had a chance to take some. I am in Irvine about an hour south of LA. The previous owner had the truck for many years. Looks like he was working on the body quite a bit as it is in several colors of primer. It looks pretty straight at least. I don't have a clue as to the last time it ran....he passed away a couple of years ago and I got it from his daughter. They were going to restore it but alas ...... As I look through all the pictures on this site it appears to be pretty original under the hood......it's missing some hoses etc... but the carb, oil bath air filter, oil filter, horn, dist, linkage etc... are all there and look to be correct. Of course it is early days and I am certain there will be a few "surprises" waiting for me. It does have fairly clean looking oil in it ....so that is a good sign.....maybe. The daughter and friends put air in the tires, pushed it onto a U haul trailer and delivered to my shop Friday night. Getting it off the trailer and into the garage space was "interesting".......in the dark without a winch or brakes and a bit of a slope....but it went off without a hitch. So now the fun begins. Today will be the first chance I get to really look it over. I think the first item of business after a general cleaning, will be to see why the E brake isn't working. ;-) I will check out the DPETCA on the wiring....I have rewired a few cars and boats over the years but it is best to go into the process as enlightened as possible. You all are great. I have already been inspired by your projects, knowledge and stories and am looking forward to getting to know you and adding a few of my own. Jeff
