Timing Cover installed




Gasket trimmed and surface painted.

A little more progress, now I can install the Rockers and Push Rods so I can work on the Oil Pump & Shaft installation. Need to verify how the Timing Cover fits with the Crankshaft Sleeve, forgot to put it in place before tightening the Cover.

Aww, you painted the gaskets. I'm a huge fan of unpainted gaskets. Gives the engine a freshly rebuilt look. Nice progress though! She'll be running in no time.

Ford painted the whole darn thing assembled... Although I agree that contrasting lines and clean edges really look sharp!

It's a lot easier to paint it all assembled so I don't blame them.

Valve train installed, need to adjust valve lash now.




Ready to be rotated to install Oil Pump Drive Shaft, Oil Pump & Pick-up, Windage Tray and Oil Pan.




Pan installed.

At least I managed to get some progress this weekend.

As I add more parts, its gets harder to turn the engine on the stand. I think I'm going to pull the cab off the frame and store it outside for the winter. That way I can concentrate on finishing the suspension and drive line.

Cab OUTSIDE in the weather?????? Isn't that asking for more rust repair come spring? I can't wait to hear if 67Nuke chimes in.

Well, if I do store it outside it will be in the bed of the parts truck and it will be covered. There is only minor rust and it still sports it's paint and doors. I need the room to work on the chassis, and have room to put the wife's car in the garage if it's going to snow.

If it's any consolation, my replacement cab is outside too.

This truck spent at least 40 years of its life outside, one more winter isn't going to kill it.

No progress this weekend. I did manage to sell my extra set of 16.5 x 9.75 Outlaw II wheels on CL. I found a FTEr that wants the C6 out of my parts truck also, just have to pull the beast into the garage and get it out. This at least gives me some capital to move forward and helps others get their projects going too.

So I thought I had sold the Trans, Column and all the leakage out of my parts truck. But I guess the deal fell threw. Well on to bigger and harder things. I am going to move forward on taking the cab off the frame and getting it wrapped and stored for storage outside. I want to strip the frame bare and blast it, do the 78/79 steering upgrade paint it and modify the rear springs to possibly eliminate the blocks. I have a couple of days this week and maybe next week too, so lets see if any progress can be made.

Well maybe Santa will bring you some Bump presents and give you the time to install 'em the week after.
