Got some bondo work on the rear fenders done, WHOOO HOOO! A little on the hood again. I'll tell you, this old dude is tired of sliding under that front crossmember into the engine compartment to work on this, wow, that is not as easy as it was when I was a youngster!

As suspected, by moving the pulley on the power steering back, the belt squeal is gone.


Of course, the spark show in the squeal's place was not so good.
Got the pump off. Looks like there may be just enough room for the stock pulley back on there.


Gotta grind an 1/8 off the shaft just to get the puller on...

CURSE is now pollution compliant. Well, except rear O2's that is. The law around here is that pollution devices on the motor must be used when transplanted to another vehicle. No one does it, but I've been stopped three times by the sniffer cops already when driving my previous trucks.



I had to make an adapter to use the canister purge on the intake. Pointing down instead of up. The first time I drove it, it stalled out. Changed for the one from the wreckers and all is good.

Spark show is fun, as long as it's someone else's vehicle...

I'd guess thats the straw where the manifold sips evap vapors instead of charcoal filtering in that first thing underhood that gets thrown away and venting to atmosphere like smog era junk had.

Boss walks up at ten til ten, puts me on this-





I came off it and was back in my stall at 10:45. Boss had just walked up and guy to finish it just walked in.



It was smashed up pretty good underneath where you can't see. Boss sez pretty damn good. Hit the lunch clock and it looked like this-



Supposed to paint below the body line and be gone tomorrow. Zip.

A little modern vent info. It may come in handy for those of you pumping gas and find it's going too slow all the time.


There is a 5/8 hose from the tank to the charcoal canister, close to the tank, not under the hood anymore. (Chevys of course). There is a small hose from the canister to intake manifold.



When key is off, the purge valve on the intake is closed. However when key is off, the canister purge right beside the charcoal canister opens. There is a hose from the canister to this "OFF" purge valve. This vents to atmosphere after fumes have passed thru the charcoal so no smell. Turn on the car, this one closes and then the PCM commands the purge at the intake to open when pressure builds up in the tank.


So, if you find filling the tank is difficult, it could be the canister or the purge valve beside it.

I ground down the shaft so I could get my puller on it. Got the small pulley off, original large pulley on. Needed a belt almost 2" longer, but no squeak now...YES! (fist pump)


You can see how it takes engagement with the small pulley to stop the belt squeal.

Gathered up the spare hood today and made a trip over to Old Car Parts. Been dealing with Joe Sr. and Jr. since I was in high school in the 60's, and they specialize in old Chevy parts.
I needed all the inside door and window handles, plus outside door handle for driver door. Also needed the garnish molding for the passenger door, and 1/4 window. And of course the big ticket item; a grille! I took my moldings for driver's side along to match up for passenger side, and found both garnish moldings. Couldn't locate a perfect grille I could afford, (his perfect grille was $2,000!) but did locate one not so perfect that I could repair. It is missing the bottom 3 bars on both sides. Either broken, or mangled. But Joe also had a half a grille that's in better shape, and easily repaired. I got all the parts I needed in trade for the hood, so no money out of pocket!
Once I split the grille halves I'll repair the extra half. Then I'll cut bars out of the bad half and use pieces to repair the 3 mangled bars in the other half. I'll end up with one decent grille in the end, and not have to so spend the $1500-$2,000 they want for a perfect grille. I'll just paint this one, and leave the perimeter chrome, and it will be good enough for my budget.
Also went by my local sheet metal shop and had him bend up a bunch of various sheet metal pieces I need for the rocker repairs. Having him bend up my metal will save me a bunch on buying the pieces. Once he got the 8 or ten bends made up it cost me $10 for his labor, and saved me hundreds on repop pieces.

Follow ups. It looked like this by 10, and is buffed and sitting outside now.





Just what the customer wanted. The truck is "just something to have around the farm".

What you going to do. Tweak the resistance of the gas gauge so you always have a full tank?
