Re: Project two tone.

That spare is going to look cool on the stepper. I think they all should have them
Sucks to hear about the carb issue. Carefull it isn't leaning it out like you mentioned, I think Sharps40 had a lean issue and burned his engine if I remember. Good luck

Yeah I got the carb running good. It is running rich I can say for sure. And I make sure to run no less then 92 octane in it. Sharps40's issue had to do with a lean mixture and to advanced timing, and I believe low octane fuel had something to do with it also. Thanks.

If I didn't give you all the needed brackets let me know which one is missing. Maybe I can find it.

Re: Project two tone.

Well this is a funny story...the ol 64..my donor truck...runs great. It hadn't moved under its own power for 13 years. So since I had it running I thought well lets see if it will drive. Mistake 1. I didn't have the throttle linkage hooked up. Mistake 2. The radiator has a bad hose leak. Mistake 3. Two bent pushrods. So with out any throttle springs I think the Carb would hold itself at a steady 1,200 rpm, I didn't want to go higher cause of the pushrods...I'll post a video....and you'll know why! LOL! So get the rpm to stay at 1,200 and I hop in the cab and slip it in gear. Clutch lets out like it was brand new....and I am cruising just above idle in granny gear. Right when I am at my destination...just before I want to back into its new spot...it dies. Hop out...cause I have to refire it by touching the starter terminals with a screw driver....fire it off. Now it don't wanna idle, dies again. Now it won't re-fire with out the choke. Choke it and motor fires and flies up to 3,000...or it sounded like that...so in my panic...not wanting to blow the pushrods....I kill it! AYE! By that time the motor was hot and I wasn't sure if it was over heating or not...so I left it there. Here is were it sits as of now. I thought the day was hilarious.

Re: Project two tone.

Nice to hear! I just hauled a half a cord of wood in mine the same day (ironic huh?) and no problems at all. Hey, remember how we were having that discussion about the factory engine colors? I was lookin through my owners manual a couple days ago and saw that it had color designation codes in the back as well. I'll try to get some pics up of it and of the truck as progress goes on.

Re: Project two tone.

i agree, the spare looks great...

got a question... did the factory ever make a right side spare tire fender? so you could have dual mounts, and be able switch to snow tires and back.

i sure like the way a fender mount looks on a stepper.
nice job...

Cool! Yeah I remember...mine was green, but it is gonna be a dark blue when finished! LOL! Looking forward to seeing the pictures. As far as I know...Blue and Forest Green and Chevy Orange and Black were the only options for the factory in the years 1963-88.

Thanks bud! No they didn't. Right side spare fenders are hand made. The snow tire was my only spare so I used it! LOL! Thanks for the compliments!
