  1. Looking real clean. What paint did you use on the engine? I like it. It's a little more subtle than the regular silver.
  2. Big T This is a noble endeavor. I would enjoy helping in any way. You could also look at the California Agricultural Museum in Woodland. I bet they would love to display a truck like that. Looking forward to the BBQ!
  3. My wife is lucky you're so far away 😉 Hopefully someone can take it off your hands. It would be a cry'n shame to scrape it.
  4. I used some dish soap, some nylon string and a wife. Install rubber on window Soap up the rubber Rap the string around the rubber Have wife hold pressure on window and seal from inside while you slowly draw the seal out and around the frame. Be careful not to pull string to hard and cut through the rubber.
  5. If all else fails. I have plenty of used ones from previous rebuilds. I can put a few in an envelope and mail them to you. Just send me a pm with your info
  6. I wonder if the Melling VL200 would work. They seem to sell them at AutoZone. They have them advertised for 0.79$. They look correct from the picture. Maybe someone more knowledgeable can verify.
  7. This may or may not help
  8. There is a load of mopars in the Martin Scorsese movie "the Irishman". Whether you like the movie or not, the cars are fun.
  9. Some old bastard mixed concrete in the back of my truck. This hunk was pulled out between the bed and cab.
  10. This may or may not help... I purchased and installed a 6 volt positive ground alternator from Quality Power this weekend. The size of the bottom mounting tabe on the alternator required a adjustable bracket. https://images.app.goo.gl/YRXZG7WNhV64sPxg8 The original top bracket didn't work either, so I used a bracket from Mr Gasket. https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/mr-gasket-universal-alternator-generator-arm-9851/6121551-p?c3ch=PLA&c3nid=6121551-P&adtype=pla&product_channel=online&store_code=&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIyquz3omR5wIV5JJbCh3-igoqEAQYASABEgKo0_D_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds I had to cut and drill a hole to mount. I had to remove fan blade bolts to make enough space behind water pump pulley to remove the bolt which holds the top bracket. The bolt sits inside the water jacket, so there will be a loss of coolant. The wiring is the easiest part. Removed the original wires from generator to regulator. Ran a single wire from alternator to the battery terminal on the regulator. I ran out of day light before I could properly test.
  11. Well then...let the adventure begin!
  12. It depends on what you're shooting for. If you want a trailer queen or a survivor that you can enjoy. My truck looked like that when I started..and it still does 😉 Seriously though, I've done the minimum to get it road Worthy and enjoy driving it and i get a lot of thumbs up. Someday I may do the body work and paint, but for now I'm just going to enjoy what I have. Plus, they're a ton of fun to work on.
  13. The original clutch fork boot has a metal frame. This frame has tabes which poke through the leather boot and are then bent around the bell hole to keep it in place. https://images.app.goo.gl/rFPcBjciRdBT1dWP7
