Are those balls two different diameters and supposed to be inserted alternately, big-little-big-little...?

Apparently some do and some dont. If the balls are two different colors - bright and dark. Then yes. If all same hue then no

Is that the rear shock brackets you're commenting on? What does the bracket look like? Just curious....

Yes it's the rear. I'll post up a shot of the brackets later. The axle that has been put in there was from another vehicle and the bracket on it did not align well with the one riveted to the frame. Easy to move it than the one one the axle.

Definitely subscribed. How did I miss this one.

Great build and progress. I have my eye on a truck with same color scheme down the road. I appreciate the postings on the power steering box. I had never attempted that and now feel like it is doable.
You have a lot of the same challenges that I had to face on the wagoneer I am doing right now.
I think that you doing this in your fathers memory is really great. I am really sorry for his loss. Nothing prepares you for that. My mom died in 2010 from an asthma attack and tomorrow is her anniversary. Ugh. So your truck has special meaning. How cool to bring it back and be able to use it later.
I'll be following and appreciating your work. Looking just great.

Thanks for the kind words. Much appreciated. There are times when tis is really frustrating. Such as the billionth time I do/redo something. So a bit of encouragement helps!

The factory paint was that light turquoise, blue green. Dad painted it about 25 years ago but I don't think he had a water filter in the air line. Didn't take long for tiny bubbles to surface and cause rust.

Almost have the rolling chassis ready to push around and temporarily remount the cab and fenders to start the body work. Found a relatively inexpensive source of 16 gauge sheet metal for patch panels. Sure wish I had an English wheel, shears and a brake. Might have to make a trip to HF for some one time use stuff

Bit of an update. Cab is temporarily back on the frame while I cut the rot out and weld patches back in. Progress is when the body work kicks in!

Interesting shock bracket. Not close to mine at all. Mine is welded to the round cross member above the axle.

That bracket was riveted to the frame several inches aft of where it is now.
As close as I can figure that ground wire is for the horn. It was not connected at one end but the fitting was still in place.

That is indeed the ground wire. When the horn comes on by itself when you turn, that's the same circuit that has rubbed through the wire insulation inside the column. Make sure the wire bridges the rubber rag joint. It looks like it does, but sometimes pics are hard to make sure.

Sure enjoying the build. I could take a lesson in speediness from you.
You are moving right along.

Thank you. However, it may not be as speedy as portrayed. The first set of pictures are from last summer. I didn't find this forum until recently.

The business that I have acid dip the parts is 140 miles away and it takes a week for the dipping process so that slows things down considerably. I hate driving over the Santiam pass during winter blizzards especially when pulling a trailer with large body parts loaded.

I did find and buy another 70 J2500 from another member on this forum. Will drive to SOCAL the end of this month to pick it up. Between the two I may end up with a great truck

Why did you choose to do the acid dip over some sort of media blast? Down here where I live I don't think many (if any) do acid dip, I'm guessing it's because we don't have the rust issues you face in the N.W..

I have both done and had media blasting done. Always some areas that could not be reached. So this time I opted to use a liquid that got everything- behind brackets, under joined panels, etc. Actually check out the website for Metal Works in Eugene, OR and see the whole 2 tank process. It's pretty interesting.

I watched a few videos on youtube after I asked you why you did the dip, you do a far better job of explaining why a person would want to do it than the videos did, thanks for the reply
