Well, last night i wanted to put my left exhaust manifold on, but low and behold one of the flange bolts went and broke on me so today i spent an hour with a drill, torch and e-z outs trying to remove it. i got it out now tonight i will put it back on and take the truck on the first drive in 2 years.
Waiting for spring. But, I have been working on modifying an instrument cluster to make my autometer gauges fit. Have encountered a few issues but none to big of deal. Also, installed a CD player. After I get the dash work done, I'm going to change the oil and transmission fluid and then get some bigger mud flaps on so I don't keep chipping paint with rocks/gravel from my tires when I do drive it. I have many more things I want to do, but I'll just start right there. I'm just another one who has a truck that sits during the winter and only see's pavement. I kinda feel bad because I'm sure the truck would love to see some snow up here.
I worked on trying to figure the pesky turn signals out a little bit before work but for the life of me cant find the t/s flasher. the hazard light flasher is right there but the t/s flasher is hidden pretty good. I know ill feel retarded when i find it. Changed brake lights to LED bulbs and put the steering wheel back on, even though now i have to take it right back off . I will resume in the mornin. I CANNOT wait till I get these figured out because other than the lights and insurance its roadworthy, so far.
I did a intake/carb swap on my 1973 360. Went from a 4 barrel to a 2 (needed the 4 for my other project a 1970 Galaxie 500 fastback). Cleaned the Brown Beast out and went over my plethora of intake manifolds (I have two 2 barrels and one 4 barrel intake if anyone is interested...all cast iron.) I have plans for tommorow to do some pinstriping and maybe a racing stripe since the weather is nice here for once. I am also planning on selling it soon just a heads up if anyone's lookin.
Today I was only able to get her unfrozen from the ground (GOD I love 4L) and get her running around for a bit today

Got home from work (been gone 5 weeks), went to the shed, turned the lights on,ran my hand down the side and imagined what she will look like finished.Won't get much else done as I gotta leave on Monday. Frustrating!
