I have the same problem. Also there's the "just enough time to start something" issue.........but you only get about 1/3rd of the way into it and your time's up. I got a lot of that around here.

Ya i totally agree guys, but i seem to punish myself by working on three trucks at once. Crew cab, highboy, and 79 bronco mud truck. But the crew is the highest priority.

For those you haven't seen my other thread...

The 1977 Highboy "winter truck" 460 powered.

Ok, down to business.

I got the oil pressure sensor piped into the block and wire hooked up but forgot to actually start the truck to see what the gauges read.

I ran the wire to the fuel tank sender from the original auxiliary fuel tank wire and my fuel gauge appears to work. The needle goes from below empty to right at empty when the key is turned on and i know there is not much fuel in the truck. It will be interesting to see how it works when i actually get a good amount of fuel in the tank.

I started to mess around with my shifter boots. I found that my t-case shifter boot actually is going to work out better backwards, so i hammered the mounting surface flat so i could turn it around. I also positioned the transmission shifter boot on the inspection cover and drilled some holes to mount it and welded some nuts on the backside so i can bolt it in place.

In the truck...

The boots in position...sorry about the crappy pics.

Nuts tacked on the back side.

Before i left i also painted both sides of the cover. Next time i go to the shop i'll get some gasketing around the hole and prep the pan for install. I think i'll install the vinyl floor before i actually install the shifter boots.
