Re: SBC 350 & TH350 Rebuild Almost Done!

If it’s that big ugly yellow handled valve, there are nicer looking ones available.

Something like this.

Smile Re: SBC 350 & TH350 Rebuild Almost Done!

that's a nice handle but I am not overly worried about the yellow one (but I agree - it is a bit ugly).

Brother feels he has all the Gremlins out of the truck. Here is a cool photo, this old store is a bit down the road from him in Kilgore, Tx (the store is actually in Henderson, TX).

That's a nice-looking truck, and it sounded really good in the video!

Re: SBC 350 & TH350 Rebuild Almost Done!

Well I’m in Kilgore, bringing my truck home on Monday (about 280 mile drive).

I’ve installed all my LEDs (headlights, all markers, tail, backup, cargo, and in cab dome). I’m like a 100,000 watt Xmas tree! The front markers, that also blink on a 72 was fun but there was a great thread here on the forms for the 3 wire setup! One of the front bumper marker screws were totally frozen in and I had to bust out the plastic. I hated doing that. For my front side blinking markers this post by 9teen69 made it a SNAP!

For the head lights, that was a pain as the cans (the bit that has the adjusting screws/spring) where on inverted for left and right. Took me like 10 minutes to figure why my LED headlight wouldn’t line up to the “top”! I’ll have to adjustments when I get home, I’m sure they are pointed crazy eyed LOL.

Tomorrow it will be installing my tilt column and may be the tach. But I’ll likely leave the tach for when I get home.

It was sooo great to drive the truck and work on it too!

Re: SBC 350 & TH350 Rebuild Almost Done!

Monday morning I’ll stand out in the front 40 and listen intently for the sweet sound of your new motor purring as you cruise on home!
Congrats!

Re: SBC 350 & TH350 Rebuild Almost Done!

Well, so much for waiting to get home to put the tach in. Sadly the socket that was for the non-tilt column was busted. So I’m short a light socket :’(

Re: SBC 350 & TH350 Rebuild Almost Done!

I think you already addressed the bolt in the hole by the fuel pump correctly, but I thought I would share anyway. This pic is from one of the trucks sold at the Lambrecht Chevy auction a few years ago. This engine has 3.7 miles on it so Im reasonably sure this is how the factory left it.

Re: SBC 350 & TH350 Rebuild Almost Done!

My drive from Kyle to Austin was a bust twice this morning:

1. 10 miles out, truck lost power at hill tops. Distributor nut was not tighten and of course the time went out!

2. almost 2 miles out, nearly the same thing but ended up being the fuel pump. It was the only part reused when the engine was pulled. My brother cussed up a storm saying he should have never tried to save that $18.00. Well he also cussed about the distributor being loose too ha!

Going to try again tomorrow for home. We did two test drives, one 20 mile and one 50 around Henderson/Kilgore/Lake Port.

Here is the truck loaded with my Brother's 78 Wurlitzer jukebox
