Re: 1941 project fenix

The 65' looks awesome! Are you going to change out the gas tank or just the sender/pump?

I deleted my account instead because screw them. essentially what they are doing is picking popular images and monetizing both ends of it, a membership fee for me and ads for everyone to view.

I have already signed up to flickr who doesnt play these games, gives you 1TB space and unlimited bandwidth.

if you use photobucket, you will have this problem soon. they want to hold your images hostage, you will think "geeze I have to upload them somewhere else and edit every post with a picture" well no you dont. delete your photobucket and move on with life.
This is screwing up a lot of sites. I noticed over the weekend while doing some research that a lot of pictures I could have used for reference are now gone on various build threads over the Internet. It sucks!

yes, my 65 build thread is decimated by the pb thing. here is a shot of when I had it. his HOA complained about the patina, so he plastidipped it. he also bought it without the wheels, which I think were perfect on there.

I replaced the pump and strainer. I tried to find a complete setup in town but only one place had it and it was $259 for precision brand, compare that to $65 on rockauto. so I bought just the pump and strainer and you can see it in the pictures, as well as the video of how well it runs right after it. flickr doesnt put the play button on the videos so I guess I have to say "its a video" from now on. I replaced the tank earlier in the build because it was so rusty, and the fuel pump had the same issue. the guy said he wrecked the truck and pulled the tank and sold it to me. seems like it sat a while longer than he said.


I did a little more last night, it was pretty hot but I mocked up the seats. its a little tight in there, but I am not building a winnebago either so its to be expected.

seats are 89 lebaron that I had recovered in oxblood.

Re: 1941 project fenix

well mother flipper. I tried to get the truck to idle but it would not. some of it is the small amount of bad gas, I added 5 gal fresh but still there was about a gallon of trash in there. I added some seafoam and a gallon of xylene to combat the problem but still no good idle. one plug wire had a squirrel chew so I did plugs wires cap rotor and IAC, still no idle. I didnt need a noid light to see the drivers injector was barely squirting so I resigned myself to a rebuild of the TBI

new injectors, cleaned the throttle body completely, new o rings and seals and gaskets. cleaned the EGR while I was in there. only hard thing was getting the fuel lines hooked back up, I moved them to get to the EGR and that was a big mistake.
idles great now. the whistle is the IAC letting bypass air through, click for running video

wanted to make the seat risers so marked out the pattern

I dont think I need a riser for the rear mounts, just a nut plate. I will tack them down and start on the bed, probably today.

Re: 1941 project fenix

hey thanks! that was a really nice compliment

turned it around under its own power, almost went for a blast on the dirt road but the hood isnt bolted down and there isnt an air cleaner yet so probably best to stick to the yard for now.

de-floored the bed and trimmed it slightly, just wanted to see where the wheel arch center is in relation to the bed and back of the cab. remember that this is a 3/4 ton so it originally came with a 47-55 long bed and fenders, so I bought a 1/2 ton short bed and 41-46 fenders. the s10 long wheelbase is a little longer than the 41 short wheelbase so I wanted to see if I could get it close enough to look right.

obviously the bed sides hit the tires because the s10 axle is narrower, I could have thrown on some spacers but I like the way the wheels look in there currently so I decided to hit northern tool and pick up a single 10" wide trailer fender. when I got it home I cut it in half, then marked and plasma'd the bedsides

I ran out of welding gas building the seat mounts so while I was out I stopped for a new bottle. turns out they were out of 88cu ft bottles so they loaned me a 24 so I could keep welding. silly little thing!
IMG_6648 by Joe Doh, on Flickr

but I got them tacked in and the bed mocked up, looks super dope!

that oxblood color interior is my absolute favorite. I dont mean to gush by jeeze I love that color on a hot rod.

more to come!
