I installed them on my 64 before paint and they work like butter, the doors close so easy I have to be careful not to slam them.

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

Now that Spring is close, I hope! I ordered a 63 and 64 Shop Manual so I can have a visual back up. Time to bust butt and get the 64 street ready again.

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

My wife has been working on the paint, I installed the hitch, brake controller, trailer plug, LED taillights and cut a piece of diamond plate for the rear license plate.

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

Love that green truck!

We have a new Old Man on our ranch. The boss added a '58 One-Ton flatbed. Top speed, fifty going down hill with a stiff tailwind. I wonder how difficult it would be to put a V8 in this thing?

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

I got my speedometer working! The set screw came out in the elec/mech converter box that grabs the inner cable. I'm really enjoying the simplicity of this model ('63). I watched a youtube on removing the cluster on a 64 and it seems a lot more complicated since all the switches mount thru the cluster.

I also got my retro radio system installed with exception to the antenna. I couldn't find the cable hole into the cable and the antenna wouldn't fit anyway. Guess what I have to order today?

My 'ol frame is a little sore from a couple days of truck yoga

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

I finally hooked up my speedo last week as well, I still need an adaptor because the speedo is off by 12-13 mpg (truck shows slower than real speed). I have to do the tire/pumpkin calculation and order one. I had to get the truck lifted up so I could connect the cable. No way to bend my arm the way it needed while the truck was on the ground, without breaking something .

I installed my speaker boxes/cups on Saturday and ran all the cable to behind the seat. Next step is getting the interior done

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

Got the power steering pump and all pulleys and belts installed for my power steering conversion. It seems that the pump pulley is slightly out of alignment though. Do you guys think this will be a problem? Not sure exactly how to get it perfect.

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

Yes I think it will be a problem. At best it will cause the belt to wear out fast at worst it will throw the belt. I don't know how your pump bracket bolts on but you might be able to add spacers between the pump and the bracket or you can put a spacer between the alternator bracket and the block but then you will have to get a spacer to push out the pulley on the water pump.

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

I made a bracket for my fuse box and my fan temp controller and got them mounted. I'm ready for the fun to begin

I was thinking it was as well. Weird because everything else lines up mint. The top bracket that bolts to block is pretty substantial, not sure how I can tweak that enough to get it where it needs to be. I do have another “adjustment” bracket that has more of an offset on it. Gonna try that first. Thx for the input.

The body on my truck was far from perfect and my pockets aren't deep, $51.00 in paint and sanding blocks is what I have in it. Only got the doors and one fender sanded so far. Hopefully will get the rest sanded and paint logos on this week.
Keep it very subtle like you have it.
The ones where they sand out too many random spots just doesn't look right.
Some knock fauxtina, but I like the practicality of it.

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

Seat cover that I had for about 2 years on my 64 GMC was torn up beyond use from daily driving. New one showed up today and I am quite happy with it.

I had to add Shims (washers) to my power steering bracket to get it to line perfectly. The guys at the parts store said that was very common when you modify things.

Thank you Mac. I will be trying that in the very near future. Today I got the old steering box out, and new one drilled and mounted. Big shoutout to Capnfab for making an amazing bracket. Thing is perfectly precise in alignment with power steering box and template worked flawlessly.

Hey Vin, do you have any detail on how you went about reducing your steering wheel diameter?
