Thumbs up

Today finished buttoning up after re-timing... 18j is an f mark engine it turns out... Got it registered and insured, went out for a 50 mile drive. Performed admirably, though next SHOULD be some lhd style headlights. Didnt get flashed at all, but even cranked all the way right, still casts into the left side trees.

Pickup top definitely the thing for winter... Was almost warm in there.

Installed a Cobra 75 wx st CB and tuned the Firestick CB antenna. I also lengthened the mic cord for the Yaesu 2m radio. I'm starting to see a light at the end of the restoration tunnel. 2" OME lift goes in Saturday and hopefully my LED headlights will show up for that wrenching party too.

I mounted it on my swing away tire carrier. I'll post up a picture tomorrow. On your truck you could mount a piece of angle iron to the rear crossmember and drill a hole for a fire ring mount avoiding drilling any holes in the body.

That has to be photoshopped, it's to clean.

Nice work!

I wasn't gonna say nuttin. Mine leaks at the oil pan. My experience with a couple 2.25s is… don't bother. This is a couple 20 years newer, but still. MSimilar with valve cover. It might work, but Its not high on my list. Just like the oil "hole" under an air cooled VW.. if its not leaking, its empty.

Good luck-

Well, I lost a little bit more than a pint since the last 100miles.
I guess the T-seals got worn during assembling.
But I'm not sure.

Nevertheless it's leaking again.
Out of the drain hole.
But less than befor!
