Working on a 68 Camaro with a friend helping out another friend and couldn't figure out whether the timing was off or maybe just carb. problems.

...it was an inconsistent dist.

Carb. filled the whole dang exhaust system up with raw fuel...and then the distributor finally decided to do its thing and light 'er up!

I would check float levels and see if it's leaking gas after it's off. I just replaced my HEI distributor because the coil and play in the shaft was bad. It would stop sparking and fill the exhaust with raw fuel, spark again , then blow a big bang. I used to turn the key off while driving, load up the glass packs, pump the gas, then turn the key back on and blow flames. Yours sounds like it's leaking fuel into the exhaust after shut off.

Looks like someone ignited some fuel in the exhaust system!

The bench and the buckets, console look awesome!! Highlander Green Plaid is the best color in my opinion. You have some great seat choices there.

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

I am installing a factory antenea which requires the removal of the cowl panel. I recommend you buy that rubber cowl gasket and all new hardware when doing this job and cleaning out the kick panel area and the rockers since you will have it this far apart. and also a good time to replace the glove box and its hardware as well

I finished the installation of an E Brake cover and lower steering column cover. Both were missing in my truck when I obtained it.

Finally got my exhaust manifold off! Just not exactly the way I was hoping it would come off...

Poor manifold! But why, what did he do to you? You couldn't borrow someone's socket? 😆

This is after one coat on both pieces, I'll finish the pan tomorrow. The cover may have to wait.

IMO the coat is just as well done with applicators than out of a gun. At least my eyes can't see a difference, and I wore my glasses - for a change. Just as well have been dipped.

Installed a crank seal for the first time as well. I used a thin coat of RTV along the inside. Probably over-kill, but works.
That came out looking sharp!!! Good work and thanks for posting the applicator information.

Thanks....... After using a foam brush for a second coat on the pan, I'm back to using just brushes on the final coat. It's a bit thick for foam applicators larger than 1.5", IMP. I could reduce it, but I don't have "their" reducer and it's not worth the effort.

I'll finish the pan tonight. Think I'll hit the top (technically bottom...ha!) and top edges first, with somewhat a heavy coat. Then work my way down. I'll be sure and post the final results.

For the first hour or so it looks like crap man. Every imperfection revealed. I may have exaggerated brushes Vs shooting, but either way you can't go wrong here. Can't speak for the pan yet, but the cover looks sprayed. Shame I have to sand it

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

I started piecing my turn signal cam & associated parts back together. When I got to putting the brass parts onto the new cam, I noticed one of the springs on the front side had grown legs & walked off. I took a quick look, but didn't find it. Damn field mice will run away with anything that isn't nailed down.

I hear ya. When old and can't see that well, magnetic tray for the small stuff is the only way to cruise. Make sure you can find the tray! Have a good one eh.

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

Pulled the steering wheel and tightened the turn signal lever up, lock tighted it. Yesterday on the way to a cruise in Dad said “Aw man I forgot to tell you to honk the horn when we went by her house.” It was someone he knew. Literally as soon as he said that the horn started going off haha. I would love to have seen the look on my face, we just looked at each other and he said “Wasn’t me.” It was slightly comical considering it was a oohga horn. It would only go off in left turns hah. Luckily my switch wasn’t cracked or stripped.

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

Set enough 60# sacks of cement just inside the bed at the back to make the mud flaps drag the ground, once yesterday and once today. I have a whole bunch of other stuff in the front part of the bed from the garage so that I can store the rental cement mixer inside, so that it doesn't grow legs overnight. That's a lot to mix up- about 50 sacks. Last time I rented a hopper full and dragged it home, and was done in a couple of hours. This took all day yesterday and half of today. That does include digging the trench, though.
