I found the source of the electric fire smoke from the other day.
The wiring going to the fuel gauge fried!
Don't know why though.

Re: What did you do WITH your truck today?

I bought an OEM spare tire hanger for my 65 LWB stepside! I can't wait to get it and rework it for 5 lug and install.

Re: What did you do WITH your truck today?

I fed the beast today and took it on a cruise. Actually went bike shopping with my son. He outgrew his last bike here and needs a new one.

Re: What did you do WITH your truck today?

I finally got my 64 c10 on the ground and as a roller after almost a year. Started life as a longbed, 292 straight 6, 4 speed, manual drum brake, 6 lug, non power steering. What I have done to date...

Converted to shortbed
Power brake conversion
5 lug disc front end
Re drilled and turned rear axles for 5 lug
Yanked the 292 for a roller cam vortec 350 that I rebuilt

Still far from being about to move on its own power but atleast it's showing some progress!!

Re: What did you do WITH your truck today?

I used it to drag my car out from hibernation. Left rear brake was locked up so it was hard to push. Was able to free it up after we got it out from its corner. The only reason I keep this car is it is an A code car. Front disc brakes, 4 speed with 4 barrel carb. I still have the original carb for it.

Took my son to an appointment and then drove to the top of Mt Tam. Showed him the climb I make on my road bike and told him not to ***** and moan when he climbs a few hills around the City..

Re: What did you do WITH your truck today?

Drove it to work. It likes 0-dark-hundred show time.

It's been my DD for about 5 weeks now.

That 4:30 PM ride though................I love driving the 64, but AC sure would be nice!!

Re: What did you do WITH your truck today?

Drove to the shop and fired up my Mustang for the first time in about 4 or 5 years.

Oil Pressure in the truck and idle. I think maybe it is time for a rebuild.

Re: What did you do WITH your truck today?

Thought I'd try bring this thread back. Last weekend we took some family photos with our newest edition Colt. Today I just drove it, put maybe 50miles on it then tucked it in for the night.

Re: What did you do WITH your truck today?

This was a couple weeks back but I loaded some stumps in the bed and took em to the recyclers. Did pretty well minus a little driveline vibration that I will have to address if I ever lower it more on this chassis.
