Just what you don't want you see when you pull a head. I guess this side down is subjective. I washed the block water jacket out at home, cleaned out the block drain, fixed the oil overflow tube in the head, bla boa boa

02-18-2014 07:06 PM Too many trucks
I decided to keep the original wheels. I had the rims sandblasted and painted them in the garage. I am going with the original factory blue and white for the time period. ( I swear they were are red and the factory just painted blue over the red for the handful of blue that were factory ) Gm in Canada must have had rail tankers full of that red.

02-18-2014 06:57 PM Frame moving along
I cleaned up the frame at home and painted it. I decided at this point I just wanted something cool to drive. So I kept it simple and went with black paint on the frame. I will save sandblasting and colour matching painting for another day.

Here is a pic of the truck coming home. April 2013. Then a pic of the rolling frame with drive train I picked up a few days later. My rolling frame had a less than stellar engine. Once it was in the garage for a few days water started dripping. It dripped for 3 weeks. It was frozen, and seized like a rock. I had to soak it to get the tranny out, I needed the tranny, diff and frame from the rolling frame I bought. I knew
Mayter had a shot tranny and bent frame. The tranny on Mayter had been packed with grease instead of oil.
