I have a 66

Lets see how good my eye is .
I would guess 1967 or 68 by width of hood and shape of fenders

Going dually down the road and a 5 lug F100 9" rear end don't match. Keep the D60 and swap out gears in it.

Over the years, I've straightened up more messes than I can count because someone thought an engine "jumped time" I'm not sure where that idea ever spawned from but engines just don't generally do that.
Check the timing chain for wear and replace it if it's sloppy. Find top dead center/compression stroke and see where the rotor is pointing, my bet not to the #1 on the cap meaning some one got it stabbed wrong and just moved the plug wires over to correct for it.

entirely possible, previous owner knew mechanics well, but was lazy and incredibly cheap so would always take the shoddier route to 'fix' something. when the engine gets pulled to do the freeze plugs it's quite likely we will re-time it to standard then be done with.

work began, yay. Husband finally has some time off. Merry Christmas everyone.

got it moved onto the concrete pad, hood, grill, radiator and fan-o-death are all off. now to run the numbers and find out if it's a 69 Bendix PS or the other one (yay for half year changes) and find a suitable, low-cost replacement. Next Weekend, Junkyard Date (super romantic )

i have what i think is a funny story about the spark plug being off one. a boss i had years ago told me this about his neighbor. it seems that the neighbor was not a mech. any way shape or form. well the neighbor thinks that hisearly 60,s chevy station wagon with a straight 6 needs a tune up. so he pulls all of the wires off the plugs you can most likely see where this is going. any way he gets mad and goes over to my bosses house and sells the car for like $50.00 just to make it go away. they push it done the street to their house. his Dad gets out his Motors Repair manual, finds the firing order for a 6 cyl. chevy and about ten minutes later they have a running and driving car. so of course being the teenagers that they where they drive by the neighbors house and honk the horn. naturally he,s pissed. he told me all of his siblings learned to drive in that car. they drove the wheels off it.

Even a 50 year old desert truck will eventually rust

My husband gets all the credit for that one it worked great! we were then able to easily get hands on it and set it aside.

work went well today, diveshaft is dropped and waterpump and accessories are all off. ran into a snag though, the Flywheel bolt is stripped. anyone got tips to get it out?
