beautiful. Yup, if I ever do a bed again, I'm taking it off the truck and standing it up...for sure!

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

Picked up my heads from Redman's Machine in Oakhurst today. Newly refurbished 062 heads with new 1.94/1.60 valves,
new springs, and and the shop's pocket porting.

I took the heads in with the old springs, rockers and valves still attached....$550.66.

I paid $300. The "Boss" settled up for the rest as a Valentine's Day
treat for me.

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

Ran the block number on my "new" motor...found out its not 350. Its 305. Same size block different bore. But its OK, because the mechanic that sold it to me is a standup guy. Im gonna get my money back and return the motor.I had already cleaned and primed it.oh well, more money towards my 350.also cleaned and painted inside frame rails and partial firewall. Also cleaned and painted trans member and motor mount brackets.picked up grade 8 bolts to reinstall both. New motor mounts came in. Received my '72 service manual I had ordered online.

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

Getting ready to install the fuel pressure regulator, I went out and looked at the fuel pressure gauge. it wasn't at 15, the way it seemed to be pegged on the last start-up.

It was at around 9.5. Just sitting there. No electric fuel pump "on"....So, first I pulled the gauge. It *did* move. To 7.5...while it was off. No pressure. There is a screw
at the back I figured was an adjusting screw. I adjusted it. No dice.

Couldn't get another one today, so I installed the fuel pressure regulator, hard and soft lines. Screwed the fuel pressure gauge back in. Fixed a couple of trouble spots.

I think it showed 12 when adjusted all the way out ("most clogged") while the ignition was on and the motor was not running. When I started it up, the gauge reads "9".
Guess I better get a new gauge.

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

Wednesday, just as the big storm Pax was getting started, I mailed off my shipping payment to get my 1968 stepside spare tire cutout fender sent to me.

I'll have to figure out where to put that as my garage is pretty packed up.

Washed the winters green slime off her, hopefully this year I'll get some time to do some serious work on getting her back on the road. Been accumulating parts for years now.

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

Got the intake bolted on, carb bolted on, cable bracket on, throttle and kickdown hooked up, and dizzy stabbed and set at TDC. Just need to change the oil, install the cap and wires, and toss some fuel in it so I can time it.

Also found the casting numbers on my heads.

They are 14014416.
