Re: Dumptruck Dolly

Got the box lifted and started measuring contact points.

I still have to complete the previously mentioned list (brakes, etc...) but I couldn't help myself to start preparing for this step.

Re: Dumptruck Dolly

So, a simple oil change was a little more arduous than expected.

Re: Dumptruck Dolly

I had sprayed some penetrant on the filter/block junction which helped, and as I did that, I noticed that my alternator belt was a little loose...I sprayed down the bolts and then tried to loosen them...Arrrrrgh...busted them off and created more work. So, with that, I started spraying every bolt on the block for future work... I will do this off and on now. Bummer.

Also, took off the carb so as to put in an accelerator pump.

Re: Dumptruck Dolly

That's frustrating....I've been fortunate enough to not have that happen and need to use an easy out....looks like you're making progress, though !

Yes, I am making some headway and to quote from an Eastwood film, I will "endeavor to persevere".

Tonight, I am going to research the carb rebuild. My primary goal is to get the accelerator pump replaced, but depending on how things come apart, I may have to go all the way with the rebuild. Haven't done that in quite awhile, and that being just once. (On a 1955 big window Chevy truck with a 235ci).

Re: Dumptruck Dolly

I got it put together, and back on the manifold...but that's been about it for now, as I've had to do some of my landscaping at my place and also at a neighbors.

I put a 1956 Crestliner Viking runabout into the water, so I had some fun with that too...it's been a 2 year project.

Now hopefully the rain stops...geez

Re: Dumptruck Dolly

Ok, got back to the project, in between the kids school sporting events, reffing high school and college football, and of course my everyday job...

1. Put brakes on all four corners, as well as brake line.
2. Fuel pump replaced after the original sprung a leak.
3. Ordered new upper and lower radiator hoses and new choke cable...not put on yet.
4. I enlisted a fabricator that Iíve worked with to put the dump box onto Dolly. Heíll put on new hydraulic hose and align everything up. Whew, winter is fast approaching and his help will make things manageable.
