04-15-2016 11:50 PM Steering Column out then in, Bed deck done
Ordered a universal chrome steering column. It has directional and emergency blinkers, steering wheel with column shift. The original one I had just was a piece of junk. If anyone wants this thing I will send you all the parts. The bed is done, screwed in all 49 carriage bolts. It looks great. I have to have my son redo the one end piece the slots not deep enough. He works in a machine shop. I had to go to Auto Zone and get two flash units. The ones that came with the wiring harness had one out of two work. The new ones blink a bit faster. Gas tank was put back in. Also wired the rear for trailer lights.

03-26-2016 09:37 PM Steering back in
Had to cement in the metal anchor for the direction signal lever as the hole it sits in got worn out. Had to thread the hole all the way through the piece so I could use a longer bolt. So far so good. Worked a day and a half getting the linkage set up for shifting the trany. Steering back in.

03-03-2016 10:03 PM Instrument Panel in
Installed instrument panel, ignition and light switch as well as the windshield wipers. Ka-pow everything works. Engine started at first try. All gauges worked fine. Inst. panel has lights that can be dimmed. Wipers operated ok, Have to do adjustment on wiper position. Third stop light on cab works. Changed the parking lights to a two filament bulb. Removed the light sockets, resistance fit, drilled a hole in the side of them(2 ea) so the tab for the new two contacts had a place to go. Put um back in and they work. Well so far the parking lights the directional signals will need the steering column to be in place. Working on cleaning up the head light buckets. Had to go to LMC for connectors as the old lamps are different than those of today. The connectors I bought at the auto stores are to small.
