Spent a day finding all the 6.2 diesel parts to go with the 87 I'm selling. Buyer is supposed to get it Tuesday. He doesn't have room for the 3 parts motors do I guess I'd better tear them down and see if they are cores or tractor counter weights. Probably will keep the 82 red block together for now.

Since I sold the S10 and the 77, all I will have left is 2 complete trucks and a barn full of parts.

I got my original 140k mile steering box & pitman arm swapped in favor of a fresh Redhead steering box & new Moog pitman arm. Got the old box cleaned up to return to get some $ back.

I should get a shipment today for tune-up parts (ignition parts). I found a plug wire cooked on one cylinder while doing an inspection during the recent XJ steering shaft install I completed. So some new wires + 1200°F heat shields were ordered along w/general tune-up stuff. Also going to get the carrier bearing replaced, swap in some fresh u-joints, & get the driveline balanced. I never did this service once it hit the road because I was on the fence about upgrading to OD (either a GV OD unit or a 4l80e). Either would have required shortening the driveline & I didn't want to pay twice. Well, the TH400 is still in there 4yrs/7k miles later & I haven't come across a deal good enough to swap it out for something else so I'm going to make things fresh.

I got my front bed panel stripped using a clean & strip disk on the angle grinder. Be smart and wear safety glasses with those. Spending two hours at the doctor to see if you screwed up an eye is not worth walking past the face shield/safety glasses. Ask me how I know... (I lucked out with just a scratch and some eye drops)

Installed my new valve covers (original ones were hammered looking), but after getting them installed I realized there wasn’t a good way to add oil. So I installed an aluminum filler neck. Pulled the valve cover, hole sawed an 1-1/4” hole and 3 small threaded holes later and putting the valve cover back on...done.

Before & after...
