Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

I got some work done this weekend modified the transmission adapter by moving the hole center 1/2" each way so the bolts align from moving the engine forward 1". w
Went to my friend house Friday and he helped cut down a part so my front and rear T-case sticks fit better. Installed the new wiper motor and it fit good. the Vintage Air was difficult to get bolted up the the firewall ad to remove the rear bracket and the wiring on top to fit it in. Only lost 1 grommet pushing the tubing through the fire wall. Got the driver door rubber installed holds the door out about an inch. and got the door lock linkage inside the door working.

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

Well it rained most of my time off work and I got sick Friday so no work on the truck during the Holidays. No room in the garage to move around to work in side. I did receive my wiper motor shaft seal from GMC Paul. The smaller one that fits tight to the main shaft. If the rain stops I should be able to finish up work under cowl.

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

I have not done much after thanksgiving got sick for the 3 days after and the weekends have been raining + working late shift at work kills my truck time until March. I can only work on my truck in the driveway no room in the garage. I did get the grill installed Sunday. I will have to rework the aftermarket grill insert so my fingers will fit to open the hood.

Re: 71 4X4 Frame off Restoration

Nice. Who did you get the insert from?

Are you going to be able to store it inside the garage when complete since it’s so long??
