This seam along edge of upper bulkhead. Should I caulk places like this?

bump

I really don't know what to do with wiring harness. The NAS 110 harness seems overkill for what I have in the 1988 truck. So should I swap them? I have several clipped dead ends in the 110 harness that would need to be rebuilt.

How will the V8 harness integrate with 300Tdi?

I'm kinda stuck though, don't know what/how to do what is next. I would be prepping parts, but I can't get my blaster to work. Was doing fine, everything just stopped working in the middle of project.

Anyway, I'll be turning it over to Ship's Mechanical to do the actual engine/transmission install after the ABFM. Really just kind of... in... limbo.... I guess?

OK, so aside from the wiring, one of the other main issues I'm trying to figure out how to deal with is the HVAC system.

I'm ignoring the fact that this truck, and the new bulkhead, are supposed to have the NAS style AC unit. I'm going with a standard LHD heater box and motor. I assume this means I'll be venting through what would have been the AC ducts.

Question: I'm already going to need to do some kind of resto/rebuild on the interior of the dash, lower dash to get everything working right. I'm now looking at the vent system under the wing and wondering if I should event try to rebuild that, or if I should just buy a new unit.

Any thoughts?

Oh, wait.....

I just realized -- this isn't the intake duct I need anymore, is it? This is particular to NAS/Saudi AC style intake. Am I right?

After all the slow frustration with this project, I must report some success! Small, but....

First, the engine and transmission are in. And I was able to get a medium duty winch bumper as well.

Second, although the RRC is out for the count, except in an emergency, the Series seems to have gotten on board with the program, and has managed to make it through a week of daily driving in freezing temps, soft top and all, and the engine does not seem to be getting any worse -- fingers crossed and praying.

Third, I refurbished the Kodiak heater in the Series, and it is fantastic!

Fourth, I FINALLY got in touch with the one place in Portland that does metal acid dipping. Despite the fact that they have no email, and didn't answer their phone for a week, the guy I talked to just said to bring it in any time, no wait, no problem.

What's the acid dipping for? Paint removal? I've got a great place for chemical paint removal.

American Metal Cleaning in Portland. I had them remove paint from a bunch of steel wheels. It's the best way to cleanly remove paint without removing metal (particularly useful for thin panels) but it's not the cheapest way to do it.

heater hole police! Just held me to account too! Good idea to do it before galvanizing, unlike me.

Only place I found that considered taking it was Galvanizers Co., but they didn't want to take it till they had a batch they could fit it in. And the person I talked to said it had to be seen and approved by the boss before they would do a car part like that. They put me on a list, but never called back.

I have since painted it. I used epoxy primer and a single stage urethane paint. Then I did the lower half in a two-part bedliner. I also sprayed inside and had paint dripping out of all the seams and corners. I will be using CorrosionX on it before putting body back together. I also sealed all the seams before any paint went on.

I figure it's better paint than factory new, and it did get the phosphate dip beforehand, which was not removed from any of the inside parts.

Heater hole was already wide from factory.
