Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

I bought a 66 C20 that on the good side is very original and rust free. The bad, it had been sitting for many years, not running, bad gas, and every hose that carries fluid dry rotted. I have been slowly working through the process of assessing what can be rebuilt, and getting it on the road. The end goal is a restoration and for me is to have a solid daily driver. Completed a clean and rebuild of the carb.

Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

Put on new exterior door handle gaskets. Dropped the clutch head mounting screw down inside the door and spent half an hour trying to dig it out. When I finally did I went around to the drivers side and dropped another one. Have yet to get it dug out, had enough for today.

Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

Last week I replaced the carb. Runs a lot better however it's now backfiring a bit. Seems if it's not one thing it's another. I think it might be a timing issue...

Rebuilt the front wheel cylinders. Last week rebuilt the twin master. Truck has been sitting for 20 years, and zero brakes, zero clutch, and I haven't tried starting it yet.

Re: What did you do to your truck today part IV

This was over the weekend. New rockers, floor pieces... and that aftermarket fender I bought around 2001 never fit right up front...
