as the title says, i have some great news. my truck finally runs, (the j10 that i have been workin on for a while).
today at school i topped off the fluids, found some water leaks (from wresteling the head around)
so i fixed the hose that was leaking, cut about an inch off of the end, fill the water back up.
i crank it over for 5 secs, then another 5 secs, and on the thrid try right when i let the key it kicked. i was goin from this
i cranked it over and didnt even touch the gas and it fired right up, idled perfectly. so i let it run for about 15 minutes, gave it a little gas and it was just purin, the WHOLE time....
i was driving it around the parkin lot, prolly tickin off all of the teachers, (there is no muffler). but i lost my power stearing some how, before i started the tear down i could turn it from lock to lock no effort, not it is like i am trying to park my 66 mustang at a crawl, and even when i was moving it was still hard to turn the wyheel....
im very very happy. tomorrow i am goin to drive it home, after i put a glasspack on there... it is a little too loud without it.
