So, when are you going to wash the truck and give us some full beauty shots? These teasers are killing me

Good point, but I meant with all the pinstriping on it too. Pinstriping or no pinstriping, your truck has turned out great!

Re: New 64 Stepper Project

Perfect. Absolutely perfect.
The pinstriping really finishes pulling it all together.
A long trip indeed, I really enjoy seeing them completed. Lotta hours into this one.
Outstanding, Chief!

Re: New 64 Stepper Project

Pinstriping is just enough on this truck. I like the one to separate the white and the red. Nice touch!

Re: New 64 Stepper Project

Drove it into Waco to get a tank of gas, about 15 miles each way. Up and down hills back-roads, stop lights etc. from 25 to 65 MPH.
Came home and used a laser temp meter and found these temps on the engine. I dont know if thats good or bad?
Top of radiator - 120 degrees
Top of Thermostat Housing - 191
Under the Thermo housing - 171
Head between first 2 exhaust ports driver side - 192
Front of head - 191
Block - 191
Temp Gauge reading (Lectric Limited sender for year model gauges):
So what do you think?

That all looks very acceptable. Head's will be the hottest so those areas @ the 190° range is good.

Re: New 64 Stepper Project

My 63 gauge runs about that same degree on the sweep with my 180 thermostat and letric limited sender unless I'm running in 95+ weather when I've been going for a few hour At that point it will sit about in the middle. When I had a 195 thermostat in it, the gauge was almost pegged constantly

So what do you think?
Those temps look fine, if a person could maintain a temp of 190 degrees, that would be a good fuel burn and easy on the engine, key word is maintain.
Question, is that still an amp gauge, or has it been mod to a volt meter? With what I saw in your engine compartment, I would be using a 100 amp alternator at minimum, if that is an amp gauge, it won’t handle it well….
