All it took to get it flowing was the suction provided by the high viscosity of the Vaseline. And several 30 second periods of spinning it over with all the plugs out.

I found a good (better) cap and rotor off another engine in the shop. Now I am off to the store for a new set of plugs. With any luck I will be wheeling in the ditch before dark.

No at that point it sounded horrible, lifters still not quite pumped up and the plugs out. But with a new set of plugs (exchanged a set I had for a set for this truck) it fired right up, idled smooth and much quieter than before. After 10-15 minutes idling the lifters were not making any more noise. The stupid fitting for the oil pressure gauge is leaking like crazy, but other than that it's all good! It has come a long way in the past few days. Three of the windows even started working. The AC is working. Stereo and all speakers are working. The lights are working. No tach, no speedo, the EFI light is on, but if I recall that is how things were when I sold it LOL. Of course the interior still looks horrible, and I need to reinstall the rear floor panel, but it runs and drives. Low range works, CDL works, brakes work, all things considered I think I am doing pretty well.

After getting $20 of premium tonight, I have spent $90 so far getting it running!


If anyone can tell me where to find the wire that plugs into the factory oil pressure switch, that would be great. Lots of the wiring has been "moved around" under the hood on this truck and I can't seem to track it down.

Didn't get much done today, had to do real work.

Tracked down the wire for the factory oil pressure switch and removed the leaking line for the aftermarket gauge. Installed a factory switch, plugged it in and no more oil leak.

The drivers front window wouldn't go down, and the passenger front wouldn't go up. Given the leaking sunroof, I suspected the switches had gotten wet and been ruined but they were all fine. Both motors were shot, and I literally had some good ones on the bench so I just swapped them out and lubed up all the window channels, regulators, etc. Everything is working great now. I need to fix the sunroof next and then start cleaning.


Also, couldnt help myself. Found out the shocks are completely shot.

In the end we found out it was a custom bumper made by someone in TN? I think. He built a few of them for people in the local club there or something.

New gas cap will keep water/moisture out of the fuel tank...

From the looks of it the rubber seal on the old one just wasn't doing the job anymore.

Edit- It looks like one is vented and the other non vented but they both say non vented.

I always wanted a terrain master bumper. Put a 4.6 in that truck already.

That's no Terrainmaster bumper. I had one of the first ones here.
Love the way they solved the sunroof leak.

By "solved the sunroof leak" did you mean "leave it under a blanket of pine straw for years"??

I really need to get the sunroof freed up so I can clear the pine straw out of it and get it fully closed. How the headliner is still intact and hasn't fallen down yet is beyond me because the water that gets in the sunroof seems to go there first, then down the B pillars to the floor.

Once the leak is eliminated or at least slowed down I will be pulling the entire interior... Should be interesting!

BTW...I was just looking at your interior pics! If you are interested I have a complete grey leather interior; front & rear seats and all four door cards minus the wood trim!
Bought this for my '83 but they did not work...the seat mounts were totally different!

I don't have a need for these...my interior is a differnt color and in good shape (on my '93)!

The grey interior is out of '91...leather is treated and soft, and I have them properly stored, drivers seat looks just as good as the pass. no cracks. They are in exellent shape!

Joel, are you to completely restore this classic? I followed your restoration on the 90 a couple years back. Amazing work.

Thanks, yeah this truck I just want to keep running so probably not a full resto or anything close to it.


Got the sunroof open manually and cleared the pinestraw that was jamming it. Now it closes all the way.

Picked up some wheel spacers for it ($100 used). Now would have been a great time to check up on the brakes too but I'll just replace them later.
