My bracket is original and is black. Interesting. Maybe I'll send mine in with my D110 bulkhead to get galvy.

The color is original as well. It's called Sand and to my knowledge was only used on Series II trucks. I've never seen it on a IIA.

Looking good!

Did you still need help with routing of the wiring? I am stripping down my 63 109 and am taking lots of pictures to make sure I know where things go back. If you need anything specific let me know.

Also have a Kodiak Mark IV heater that was in the truck when I bought it.

Thanks Charles. Once I get the wings back on I will need some help on everything forward of the bulkhead. Any help you can supply would be appreciated.

Update - Making Progress

I haven't updated in a long time. I've been working on the engine and that has taken me about two months to complete. Here's what I've done:

- Pulled the engine out of long term storage
- Stripped ancillaries
- Removed 20 years of grease and grime
- Found that the front main seal was leaking so pulled front cover. Seal was shot and it had worn a groove in the pully. Replaced seal, and replaced the pully.
- Replaced late Series IIA intake manifold with Series II
- Replace late Series IIA vent tube with Series II
- Cleaned and painted all ancillaries

I'm really pleased with how it turned out. First pic is what it looked like when I started. Rest are finished product.

Looks great. Digging the color matched spark plugs.

Don't tell Social Services, but with the help of my 10 yr old the engine is back in the truck.

Steering and Bumper Done

All the steering is back together. Restored the banjo wheel as best I could. Regalvanized the bumper. Had a funky finish on part so sand blasted and galvanized. Came out funky in exact same spot. Oh well.

Any updates John?

I stumbled on your thread looking for tips to restore a horn button. Was the surround around the button painted on a stock vehicle or shiny metal?

Stock was painted. I have seen both satin black and the wrinkle finish.
