Well I added pictures of my new old truck today
my first attempt never really got started. I got in over my head just because I wanted the truck and well you know hind sight is 20/20.
it currently still runs good and even used to stop good but time and sitting have killed the brakes. so my 64 f350 wrecker sits and rusts away.
But my new ride is under way.
Now I am far from a mechanic if it is internal I usually leave it alone.
but I am a part's changing pro, I did my first engine swap when I was about 12, my dad was impressed and he even managed to keep my brother from killing me for borrowing his 318 with 3k miles on it, who would have thought he would mind ?well anyway thats water under the bridge and it is time for me to try a new ford truck so I am giving it a second try.
I have the engine and trans out of it, and sent the motor to a real mechanic.
along with all the trimmings for it and I am patiently awaiting it's return
SO while I am waiting I have cleaned up everything in the engine compartment and inspected everything and so far I am pretty happy
everything has been maintained good apparently or at least nothing appears to need attention soon so I painted up the engine compartment and re routed the wiring through new looms. got a new set of headers, new water pump, alternator, set of purple hornies, new battery & cables, tach, and assorted accessories. so atleast I have a much better start going on this one.
at least its a start, much like mine, bad thing is mine is also my daily transportation so I cant do much in terms of restoration, just simple repairs and little things that can b done in a weekend or less
