Right when you think your doing good, kabam. Turned engine over to find timing mark, found it, but a puddle of transmission fluid on the floor? The trany dip stick rubber gasket at bottom of tube leaky. Went to auto part store and got one for 87cents. No leak no more. Took a rocker adjustment write up off the forum, adjusted the rollers. Took a couple of hours turning eng by hand. Finally got a place to install eng heat sensor. Only now have to find how to return heater water. Cut gas tank fillere hose to size using 3/4 board as bed floor.
Wired up gauges power and sensor connections. Routed wires into engine, head lights rear lights. Once all wired up I'll start up engine.
Engine turns over with key start, voltmeter shows 12v, fuel gauge indicates empty...., oil no pressure.
Got a kit to install roller rockers. Battery dropped to 10volts got to get a new one tommorro, So I can finish rocker install. Also installed reostat for radiator fan. Sensing unit inside hose. Applied the 10volts to the fan movd a lot of air.
Found a sandblaster that does cars, only old ones. Took my doors and hood over he did a great job. So glad as underside of hood was so full of muck. Sprayed self etch, they look good. A new tool for the shop a light duty bench vice. Had to thread rod from gear shift rod as I cut the first try to short. Threading went ok, Bea#$ to start. Gear shift much better now, got all the gears. Got a little more tuning to get rid of the slop.
Had to drill out lower pins from down under. Makes it a lot easier working inside cab with doors off. Still working on exhaust, should be done soon. Waiting for the welder guy to show. Fenders bolted to running boards.
