Red face Rotten Firewall

Well guys,

Don't judge me by the challenges I take on. This is my starting point for the firewall fabrication.

I just spend this evening removing and labelling my wiring harness. Don't know if I'll re-use it or get a new one. I want a good reference point either way.

No judging you in a bad way, if I did judge you by the challenges you take on I would say you like hard work. And there is not a bad thing about that at all.

What a way to start, like starting a long hard race from the very back, nothing wrong with that either as every person you pass makes you feel better.

Please keep us posted with your progress.

Noob Question

OK on to dumb questions... er...

I've seen these things before but have never really used them or known what they're for.

What is this thing? I think it has something to do with towing.

In your hand is a brake controller for towing. It electronically controls/activates the trailer brakes. The **** would let you manually activate the trailer brakes if needed by hand. If it works, save it otherwise you can get them anywhere.

Looks like a old Tekonsha brake controller, for trailer towing.

Integral Power Steering Gear

I'm trying to remove the Power Steering Gear from the frame of the truck. Everything was fine until I got to the nut attaching it to the Pitman arm. First I found I didn't have the 1-5/16 wrench or socket to turn it. On Sunday afternoon in Courtenay my options are a little limited for a last minute tool purchase.

The Removal and installation procedure calls for a Tool T64P-3590-F (). Which I find out is just a two jaw puller.

I have been tossing around the idea of going non-power for the brakes and steering to scavenge a few more horses for the driveline on the 460 that will power this rig.

Bill never worked on an assembly line. He was a Ford Parts manager, working in several different dealerships throughout the mid '60s/'70s/80s and into the mid '90s,
if I remember correctly...
I gotta get off this darn computer and go to bed, I haven't slept in 2 days!
It's gonna be the death of me...
Nice SCS, however, that is defiantly a mid west truck, but it's still better than some stuff on this site.
Welcome to the site, I love Super Camper Specials, they aren't to common.
Here's mine:

My SCS was also a cheapie, however, mine is built FE with a 4-speed.
(Note: I have the correct mirrors, I just haven't put them on, a previous owner put the in correct mirrors on this truck)
