I'm putting a speaker and stock radio in my truck now - I've got the speaker grille in stripper right now. My speaker choice of 5x7 was dictated by the location of the screw holes in the grille.

Turn on the four-way flashers. Don't turn the ignition on. Turn on the wipers. Step on the brake. What happens?

My Poppy red '66 has a colour code "J". I think my friend's Rangoon red '66 is also a "J" but the truck is out of town so I can't check.

I hope you can get it running and pass it on to someone who will restore it, maybe you can make a few bucks too. I think that is a rare colour, which helps value.

The only advantage to the split-rim wheel is that it can be serviced in the field with basic tools, as skidoorulz suggests. I have seen two methods of safe inflation: a chain snaked around the tire...

The cylinder with 20# might have had a bad valve. Did the cyl head rebuild fix it? If not, you have to go into the motor.
