Tuned up the 68 anniversary truck. Was going to get the carb rebuilt but noticed that the gasket to the manifold failed . Replaced it and the plugs truck sounds nice

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Not to my drivers. But I removed and sold three fenders a steering collum and two doors from 73 thru 79 chevy trucks and sold them. That's the last of the real good front fenders We had. Still have some good 80 thru 86 left.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Performed a little work on my carb - did a vacuum check and installed the correct step up springs for it (they had not been optimized since I rebuild and got timing dialed in). Engine runs great, and is much more fun to drive. Met friends at a local cruise night and braved the rain to get a nice drive in.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Pulled the carburator on the 68 anniversary to send it out for rebuilding. Found the base gasket was bad and had been for a while as there was heavy rust on the manifold around the front ports . New gaskets and plugs truck sounds great. Still going to get it rebuilt but now it can wait till winter.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Been working on the raised bed lately. Yesterday I was able to build out the battery mount area on each side as well as install a bear claw latch for the floor.
