Re: Something to tinker with...

Spent a little time this afternoon pulling the bent core support so I can remove the engine and transmission next. Then it will be able to be moved inside my little shop and I won't be so restricted by weather when I get time to work on it.

Can see in the picture of the core support, the driver side headlight is not sitting straight, damage from the previous fender-bender.

Re: Something to tinker with...

Thanks! Planning on getting the engine & tranny out in the next day or two as a local guy buys transmission cores, good for a $100.00 back into the truck fund when I get it pulled, so there is a little more motivation now...

Re: Something to tinker with...

Engine and transmission out and now time to start cleaning up the engine compartment. Once I get all the dirty work done, it can then be rolled into the shop so I don't have to work around weather issues...small progress, but still moving forward!!

Re: Something to tinker with...

Poor thing is starting to look a little spindly, just a cab and the fenders...

Have to find time to hit the Dollar Store up for some spray oven cleaner and get the engine bay cleaned-up.

Re: Something to tinker with...

Nice project you got there. You're just down the street from me more or less, ha. If you haven't used Simple Green, you might be really surprised a little work if it takes to get the engine bay a lot cleaner. A lot of times I'll spray it down with simple green, let it soak while I'm doing something else and then hose It off. Two or three treatments like that and it starts to look pretty darn good. The paint looks pretty good in there and you might etch it with oven cleaner. Although I guess I recall that you might be changing paint colors.

Re: Something to tinker with...

Thanks, I dragged it and the parts truck home from close to your general neck of the woods, give or take. One from Tacoma and the other from Renton.

I have never tried the Simple Green, usually just grab the cheap oven cleaner. Have never noticed any paint etching, but good thing to keep in mind if I weren't going to eventually change the color.
