Re: 71 K20 Idaho Edition

This morning I thought it would be good to make an inventory of what I have and what I need to get the mechanical going.
I ordered a few items this morning like a few belts and a mini torque starter.

Started with separating the electrical harness and cleaning it up and figuring where I need to replace a few of the Packard 56 terminals.
Once I get through that I will re-wrap with new electrical tape and use some of the Duragloss 203 to dress up the electrical and keep it looking good.

Pict. 1 If anyone know where these might be sold I would love to get a couple of these.

Pict. 2/3 Just shows the harness and the state it is in right now before refurbishing. This is only one half of the under-hood harness.

Re: 71 K20 Idaho Edition

Glad to see you back at this Jim! Sorry about your loss, I lost my mother this summer, it isn't easy, and a lot of work buttoning up her affairs.
About the emblem painting, I watched a thread about a guy who used syringes to flow paint onto lower parts of emblems, turned out really nice. Maybe google or you tube would have something about it.
Keep it up, Greg

Re: 71 K20 Idaho Edition

Early this morning I finished one section of the wiring harness that was started on yesterday and got through about half of the other. Lots of scrubbing with cleaner and a brush, replaced a couple of sections with some fresh matching wire and terminals left over from an American Autowire kit. Wrapped it up in some new heat sink cloth sheath like factory and the rest with 3M Super 33++ electrical tape.

Also found one of my deliveries from last night on the doorstep. A new high torque mini starter. I robbed the old for the 70 Teal K10 that I was getting ready to sale. Should be able to wrap up the rest of the electrical harness project today and get the starter installed so I can cross a couple items off.

Re: 71 K20 Idaho Edition

This morning I finished refurbishing the under-hood wiring harness. Had a few more terminal ends to replace then went over the entire harness with Duragloss 203. Got the fuel pump mounted and started on bending the new fuel line to the carburetor. Started to mount the alternator and noticed I still needed to spray some engine black on both brackets. I will give it a couple of coats today and get to it this afternoon. Next up will be the new starter install and getting the radiator ready to go back in.

Pict. 1 - table mess after refurbishing the wiring harness.

Pict. 2 - wire harness ready to go back on the truck

Pict. 3 - new fuel pump installed

Pict. 4 - brackets for the alternator, watching paint dry

Re: 71 K20 Idaho Edition

Got a few items done today in between helping with yard cleanup and hanging lights for the holiday. Made two trips to the store to exchange the wrong fan belt size.
Painted the z-bar shifter linkage and AC brackets so I can get that mounted. Finally got the alternator installed this afternoon.
Will shoot for installing the AC bracket and compressor from the Old Air Products kit this evening.

Re: 71 K20 Idaho Edition

Got the AC bracket and compressor mounted. Noticed after mounting that the coolant outlet on top of the manifold is not going to work like that.
Ordered up a 90-degree setup and hopefully, that will solve the issue.
Then started working on a mockup for the placement of the billet bulkhead for the AC and heater hoses.
Did not have the size of the metal hole saw I needed so off to the store to get a few items.

Re: 71 K20 Idaho Edition

Took a step back on the AC install. Had the wrong evaporator unit for under the dash. Was never going to fit right. Got that all sorted out with tech support over at Old Air Products and have a new unit on its way. Got the electrical harness for under the hood stuffed into the new plastic sheath and mounted the terminal bulkhead to the firewall. Plugged in a few items on the harness, and made up the new positive and negative battery cables. Installed the starter, then did a test fit for the air cleaner to make sure it would clear the compressor for the AC.

Going to do a temporary install of the old radiator so I can get her fired up soon. Ordered a 3-row aluminum one off of Evilbay and really do not want that from stopping me from getting it running. I am guessing in the next day or so it should be ready to start up. Once I have it running then I can drive in and out of the garage so I can start painting parts that are ready.

Re: 71 K20 Idaho Edition

Had to remove the AC compressor and bracket so I could remove the old heater outlet fitting from the manifold and install the new 90-degree outlet fitting so it would clear the compressor pump. After getting that installed and the AC compressor and bracket back on the motor, Amazon dropped off an AC belt that I ordered just in time for a test fitting. All is good with the belt size, which I believe was 53 7/8 inches.

Pulled out a few boxes of bagged hardware and bolts for the reassembly. Most of them had already been soaked in Evaporust and are ready to go. Some still needed soaking and I had a few items that still needed some sandblasting like the top radiator mounts and rubber pieces. Taped the engine harness crossing over the core support until I get some new screws to hold it in place. Also started to remove some of the items that were stored in the bed and get it ready to come off and go on the body cart for the finish of bodywork and paint.

Lots of small details left on engine prep before it can start.
-fabricate a new metal gas delivery tube from the fuel pump to the carburetor
-screw in the oil pressure fitting to the back of the motor
-hook up all electrical to the motor and new Pertronics distributor
-fasten down the hoses on the radiator and fill it with water for now since the new radiator is on its way
-hook up the old exhaust
-check all fluids and start it up
