9 Hours

Wow, 9 hours! That's crazy. Mine probably took 9 weeks just to get the same chassis out and painted and back in.
Hope your machine shop calls you soon, the engine is the coolest part!
Keep up the...

Glad to see you made it to the shop. Forged bottom end is nice. Are the 401's cranks forged too? Also, I love your license plate. That's real good.

Front Axle Stuff

Finals are over and I've been able to make some more progress. I was out rebuilding the hub/spindle for real this time, and found the wrong torque spec. I managed to strip one of the spindle studs,...

Rang-A-Stang, that's cool they make those for AMC engines too. I know that the Buick guys recommend them for pretty much every rebuild, just because the gears are guaranteed to rub into the aluminum....

Awesome to see you making quick progress! It's cool to take an engine apart isn't it? You know what's in there, and how it works, but touching it all takes the cake.

I didn't think about that issue. Colorado has some emission laws if you live in Denver & surroundings, but there is a rolling exemption of 25 years that lets you get out of the emission regs, "as...

Brakes

I didn't take any pictures yesterday, but I put in the brake lines in most of the way. I still have to tie them into the calipers, but I got them run from the master. Also, I put in the transmission...

That is a very pretty truck. It's a good paint combo.
You make me glad that trucks don't have tailgates. The windows seem complicated enough.
You'll have to tell us if there was any single piece...

More Slow Progress

Hey All,

@SJTD: Yes, we quickly covered the holes. I don't know why we'd left them open.

Over the past few months, we've been making some progress. It is slow though, school takes a lot of time....

Thanks guys. I'm getting excited. I'm back in school now, so It's going to slow down again. Oh well. I got the dash all ready to put in the other day.
Have a good day y'all.

Kaiserjeeps it sounds very pretty and calm up there, like a place I'd like to live. Sorry your T-86 gears are stripped out. If I find a solution to my issue, I'll certainly let you know what I did.

Thank you very much for the info on the radio conversion, and what to expect from him. I will certainly keep that option in mind. Again, pretty truck!

Crankyolman, awesome job on the restoration. The interior is beautiful, and funny story on the co-worker.
