Is the front drive shaft going to make contact on that cross member when the front end travels? The front dash pictures bring back old memories on my '67 that I had when I was 16.

I hope it doesn't!

It's an all stock M715 setup so I doubt it will, especially since these post mount trucks don't have all that much flex up front anyway.

Okay, been busy with this for the last couple of weeks.

Gave it a full tune up and rebuilt the carb. Acutally rebuilt a spare civi carb I had. While I was there I adjusted the valves. They where way out of whack. TSM calls for .008 for both intake and exhaust, I was able to get a .016 feeler gauge under each rocker arm with room to spare. It no longer sounds like a little deisel idling now.

Also added the correct spark plug wire brackets on top of the valve cover and the correct chrome acorn nuts. Two of them are from the original 230, I found them in the truck when I bought it.

Got an M715 speedo cable installed, but the t-case speedo drive doesn't seem to be working.

Also scored Ristows 2bbl intake and carb, stock 1bbl oil bath air cleaner and just made a deal to buy a complete A/C and power steering set up from him from a parts Wagoneer he has.

Dropped the plow this weekend, and slapped on a nice vintage 1963 plate that I bought at a swap meet the other week.

Messed around with the t-csae shifters, figured out that I didn't have enough backwards movement to shift into low range. Cut the floor a bit, adjusted the linkange and it works great now.

Front stick is (from dash back) Lo-N-Hi and the rear stick from the dsah back is 4Hi-2Hi-4Lo. I get real 2-lo out of this shift set up, but can't shift the axles seperately.

So far the only things that don't work are the fuel gauge (no sending unit), speedometer (mentioned above) and the dsah lights (pretty sure the rheostat(sp) is bad on the light switch).

Going to try to have it road ready for late spring. Body work might not be pretty but I want to dive it. Got to get rid of the red house paint first though.






And a short video of the 230 idling.

Funny thing is the 327 air cleaner is to small to fit the 2bbl 230 carb. So I'd need ANOTHER adapter the opposite of this one

Does that mount to the mid plate though? I know the regular alternator bracket did.

I'm sure I can still make it work though.

Now I just need to find stock plow pump brackets.

Oh, did that booster hold a vacuum? How do you test those? I've got a Buick 350 one I woulnd't mind selling if I could figure out if it's good or not.

it does mount to the midplate,i'll take a pic of it. i would assume the mid plate mounts would be the same.

you can hook it up to a running motor,see it it holds vacuum. should hold vacuum for a good while after the motor is off.

Okay, been a while since I did anything with this.

Picked up a Chevy NP205 from behind a TH350 for $50 and used the speedo parts to fix my 205 today.

Ordered up a pair (nice to have parts) of NOS valve cover gaskets from Memphis Equipment Friday.

That's about it.

Trying to get a little bit done on it each weekend now that the Wagoneer doesn't need anything major.

Wrecker thread. Turns out the wrecker is dated to '73.

http://www.ifsja.org/forums/vb/showthread.php?t=132981

This is from the day I had cut it off from the dodge and stuck it in the back. I had it strapped down all winter.


Got a bit more work done. Have a stock oil bath 2bbl air cleaner on the way for it. Intake is cleaned and machined flat and I've been driving around with the carb in the back of the Wagoneer with a manual and kit trying to find a chance to rebuild it.

Got the main mast for the wrecker all bolted down using some 3/8" brackets I had made. Just built a wiring harness for the wrecker today.

Scored a nice USA made work lamp for the wrecker.
.25 cents at a swap meet. It even works! Can't beat that with a stick.

I already have the beacon and amber flashers (both work!) on the wrecker wired up to a 3 position toggle so the beacon can run independently or with the flashers. I dug up an NOS Deitz HD flasher for the amber flashers. You can hear this thing click from 20 feet away from the truck.

Got my new valve cover gasket on, and have the valve cover all polished up. Already starting to corrode

Mounted some new (to me) tires on my 71 so this will be getting my 5 year old bias 7.50-16's in the near future. I have 6 of them.

Not much else I guess.

Still need to put the cab corners I got from Gambler on it, replace the floor supports and get the brakes figured out. I'm now 75% certain my rear wheel cylinders are weeping. I need to buy a puller or borrow one again to get my drums off to be sure.

Well I just can't believe it! I ran my power cable to my winch (Ramsey DCY-200 8000lb worm gear that my wrecker came with), and decided it was time to dig into it and find out if it worked. I pulled the solenoid cover and was greeted veryrusted terminals and lugs typical of a winch that has sat for years in the weather. I figured, what the heck I've got nothing to lose so lets test it.

Pulled the solenoids and tested them off my battery. Both of them click on and off like new ones. They are both dated from 72 on the casings.

So the solenoids look 10X better then the motor, which looks like a lump of surface rust. I got a spare battery out, grounded the case and hooked up some jumper cables. I have both power in and out. Works perfect. You just can't beat a vintage Ramsey winch!

So it's almost road ready. I twisted my hips ( really not sure how ) working on it the other weekend. Had to take some time off from work it got so bad. I could barely walk. So not much progress since then.

I did give up on the idea of fixing my cab. I'm patching it up enough to get a couple of years out of it then it will be getting replaced.

As you can see in the pics, it's pretty bad. I'm just riveting the corners on so I can take them off when I scrap the cab. The rest of the truck is very solid.

Quick prep beofore primer and paint. This spot would be easy to fix right.


Test fit. Nice big gap there against the rocker.


Quick patch welded in to close it up. May end up getting some bondo in the spring to clean it up.


Cheap paint makes every thing look better. I'm going to seal them up with some brush on body sealer and call it good.


Only bad spot on the passangers side. Okay, still pretty fixable, right?


Drivers side. This pic makes it look good. Eh, better than most New England truck of this vintage. This and the horrible floor made me decide it would be better to replace than repair (correctly).


Nothing some 11 gauge c-channel and some 1"x.125 angle can't fix.








And there you have it. A solid main floor brace. I still need to tie it into the inner rocker and weld the two pieces together.

I have the floor pans all cleaned up, painted and seam sealed. The pans and cab where sealed against the weather a bit and I re-installed the interior.

Oh, see that rot spot neat the bolt? Where you can see metal above it. Yeah, that's a license plate. But hey! I used a commercial plate at least. I laughed my butt off while I formed it and riveted it into place.

Lol parts from that 82 J10 on jeeps all across this country. Glad you finally used those!

About all I have left are the rocker panels (going to use..maybe) and a door.

Lol, your cab corners and the NOS rockers are the best part of that cab.

Hello! Can I get a photo of what's left of your air cleaner decal? Mine is completely gone.


Thanks!

I also got a beautiful 327 oil bath air cleaner from Elliott. Had to have this little adpater machined up to make it fit.

It also gives me a 3/4" rise. Cost me $40 to have it made (I supplied the aluminum stock) and have the little stud adapter fixed.

It's a bit bigger then the 230 oil bath air cleaner, but it's not as tight fitting as it looks in the pic.
