Had a change of plan.

I gave mine a quick once over hand washing, to see how bad my bedsides are, etc...



And the front. I literally can't wait to get this thing re-painted and everything nice/straight.

Hopefully fixed my really dim reverse lights, they were REALLY dirty inside the lenses, somehow a lot of dirt has gotten inside the lenses over the years so they were pretty nasty inside.

And I put in a couple of LED bulbs so that completes my LED swap for now.

The only thing that's not LED now is the gauge cluster and headlights. And the headlights aren't going to be LED for two reasons
1. I hate crossing someone on the road that has them because they blind me, so I'm not doing that to other drivers.
2. In the state of PA it will not pass inspection unless the led's came stock from the factory.

Any good deals on weatherstripping for windows

Today I Fixed the Handle for my Tailgate so it opens. Had to get a plastic clip and put it together. Then I sealed a few random vacuum lines on the carb that were open with rubber plugs.


On another note anyone know where a good deal on front window weatherstripping kit is? Feel free to post some links for me to check out. I am working on a 1977 F150 Ranger.
Thanks for your help.

Let's see…

I cleaned this…



And this...


Then I installed a new water temp sensor and water temp sending unit… the EEC and fuel pump relays I put in a few days ago. The oil pressure sender is a job for another day.

Then I got the new 195F t-stat out of the box, drilled a hole in it and put that in the intake. I also cleaned up the housing, removed the plugs and cleaned the threads so they will be easy to get out when I install a real water temp gauge.


After all that I gave the engine a little wash job with some Gunk Engine Bright followed by some water and a good blow-job courtesy of 120Lbs. of air pressure.

Then I went into the house, loaded the dishwasher and called it a day.

Flushed the radiator on the 89 F250. Luckily no rust but the antifrezze was pretty old.
Personally I didn't want to deal with the radiator drain plug so I put a 3gallon bucket under the truck and disconnected the lower radiator hose.

Also put a breaker bar on the 92 F250 and turned it over. It has some resistance but not to much. Thinking I know what is wrong.

Why did you drill a hole in the thermostat?

Thank you for posting that photo. Guys everywhere and maybe gals as well, can use it as photographic proof that using muffins tins to sort fasteners during a rebuild is NOT the worst thing they could do. I salute you for taking one for the team.

Drilling a little hole lets air escape from under the thermostat preventing an air pocket that would prevent it from opening.

Yup, some have a thing like that that dangles in the hole, some have a dohicky that looks more like a smaller version the vent in the base of a radiator cap, some just a hole, some nothing. Nothing is a problem, and I prefer just a whole, it's more reliable, a little bit of coolant bypassing the thermostat certainly won't hurt anything. And by my thinking helps as it ensures the coolant under the thermostat is closer to the temperature in the rest of the engine, not just a stable pocket of cold coolant.
