Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Today was fun filled!

Carburetor - reinstalled the newly rebuilt carb, with new brass float, missing choke pull off, new idle mixture screws, and new jets. Once warmed up, adjusted idle mix, timing, and initial adjustment of choke. Waiting until it is dead cold to tweak choke pull off. Supposed to be a low of 24 tonight, so dead cold is right about now.

Heater - dissected the heater box in the cab and found several interesting things. First, the outlet flap was broken and just flapping about. So, given it is winter here, just removed it all together. Will address the remainder next spring. Second, determined why my air flow was non-existent, and removed the remnants of a prior tenant. It looked rather cozy, if you were a mouse. I took a picture, but didnít include it here. Ainít nobody wanna see that...

Installed parts from GMCPauls: wiper arms and blades, and new gas cap.

Finally, replaced the driver door lock so the key matches the passenger door lock.

Talking Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Finally got the tires mounted on the new to me front chrome wheels and installed on the ramp truck.

I think I need some center caps.

I was wondering what brand of fans did you buy and how is the fit?

I bought the fans and the Shroud separately. My friend actually gave me the fans, they are 14 in cheap generic fans. I got the Shroud from ledfoot racing. It's designed to go on a replacement Champion radiator but it fit very nicely on my four row original radiator.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

This weekend I tackled the drip guard. I started by removing the old seam sealer. I used a chisel for much of it and then based on a tip from this board I finished it with a wire wheel. I then treated the whole channel with a couple coats of por15 and let it dry overnight. Next day I used the self leveling seam sealer and after letting that dry for several hours (the label says you need 30 minutes) I gave it a coat of TCP 2k epoxy primer using the preval sprayer.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Replaced the alternator and re-did the shattered connector plug. While I was at it, I saw that the fuel pump was squirting gas from the weep holes in the top of the mechanical pump. So, got a new pump and will be doing that next.

Smell your oil for fuel. When the diaphragm goes, the pump can leak fuel into the oil.

Good to know. It is time for an oil change anyway, so will take care of that after I replace the pump. Thanks!

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Installed cowl vent trash guards, and replaced the cowl fresh air flap. Removed failed fuel pump, only to find that the parts store sold me the wrong one. So, will be getting the right pump today, then reinstall later tonight.

In the mean time, spent some time working to understand the AC vacuum routing/functionality and replaced a few of the 50 year old vacuum lines under the dash.

Yesterday, I finally slid the tail lights into my bed. I'm just glad that the wiring worked as it should.

Very nice work Grumpy,
Do you have a build thread?
I'm curious what year, model and color(s) truck you are restoring.
Thanks,
