Thats why I dont live in Jxn anymore...Anyways got a sweet 54 grill off ebay!!Gonna try an get some motor mounts an frame work done this weekend..55 f100 on airride, dakota frame with a 4.6 5 speed.....good times!
My summer didn't work out quite how I expected so I'm way behind on a lot of stuff, but I did do a few preliminary things.
Stripped down the front dress of the engine in order to make it easier to check out the integrety of the block water passages, Plugged everything save the lower rad hose to pump & fixed up a hose barb to it. Connected water hose & promptly found rusted out freeze plug. Under a mtr mount as well.
Considering JB Weld or either a expandable style FP as a temp fix. Oil in pan looks good. No milk. Will drain off a quart to be sure. Picked up a primer & I plan on giving the cylinders a shot of marvel mystery/30wt before priming & turning it over by hand. Then see if the starter will spin it. Then check for spark. Then rebuild the 2100...
Then I'll see if there's life in the old girl. If I get past all that, its on to the c-4.
Oh yeah, I backed into the GT with the truck when it was parked in the wrong place as well back in June... Shheeeshe!
