Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

1 baby step forward installing the ID tag back on the door jamb and a huge step backward had to mover the engine, transmission and T-case forward 1" so the right side coil pack would clear the fire wall. This caused conflict with exhaust on the right side the transmission mount and the rear driveshaft support. the good thing is the front drive shaft slip yoke still has plenty of movement. I will have to build another trans mount adapter because I don't want to move the hole mount and drill more holes in the frame. Radiator hoses can be cut down. The right side header is now conflicting with the shackle and bolt so I will have some mods to the header as well.

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

What rivets did you use to put the ID plate on??

Bummer on the motor issue. Can you relocate the coil packs and not touch the motor?

Rosette Rivets are what is original and they are about 15$ each on eBay. I was just wondering what DW used.

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

I did not get much done with the wind yesterday. I opened the garage and seams like half of the street leaves blew in my garage. Found the break and clutch peddle assembly, Parking break assembly, gas peddle and starter motor but for the life of me I cant find the nuts and bolts for everything.

I will have to move the 2 right side shifters back about an 1" the one is hitting the transmission when in High. Did some work on the hydro boost breaks as well Saturday

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

Sunday I worked on the break peddle linkage and got it hooked up the the hydro boost. Installed the steering column and steering shaft had to go the parts store and they had the correct rag joint the one that came with the kit from LMC was way to small. worked on installing the steering wheel still have some work to do but at least I can move the front wheels with out jacking up the front end makes it easier to get in and out of the garage. I did not like the cheesy wood that it came with so I will make my own with a nice piece of walnut I picked up a few months ago.

Not that I know of. I bought one of the little boxes to make a stock setup intermittent. But I can find where I put it.
What’s wrong with your current motor? Remember they are ground activated through the switch making ground by being in contact with the dash.

That one is expensive $229.00. the one I have is what they call a 3 wire and hard to find. 4 wire ones range from $75.00 to $120.00. do you have any experience with the new port wiper motors.

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

I don't have any experience with the new port wiper motors.
They just look like they will work.
I see you bought one of those new ports.
The other option -------.
There is a member on here twouvakind
that builds delay wiper system
sometimes. His last response was 9/12/18
on his product thread.

http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...wipers&page=13

I will have to drill for my air system also I picked Old Air.
I would like to see pictures of your installation if you have time to take them and post.
I know about the over time stuff.
I will also buy the new port wiper motor.
Please post details of your installation.

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

After searching part number on line I was able to install some rubber bumpers for the driver door, tail gate, and windshield washer hose. finish drilling the hole for the Vintage Air and finish up modifying my existing controls for the AC. installed the LED side marker lights but they seam to stick out further than what I remember.

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

I ordered a gallon of Por-15 from Amazon and it was delivered to my house yesterday when I came home from work i picked it up and could smell paint fumes brought it in the house set down on some plastic and noticed my hand ha paint on them went back to check my entry way and paint leaked there too. rapped the package in plastic and set it in garbage can in the garage. contacted Amazon and asked for refund and then sent the seller a bad review with pictures. now I have a gallon of hazardous paint to deal with. this week end I will try to pore it into another can see if I can save whats left.
My plan was to paint some areas inside the cab that still have bare metal up under the dash, parts of the doors and under side of roof.
