The other thing I found when I was taking the Engine Mounts off the Block they were finger tight and one of the bolts were actually missing. Glad the 390 didn't jump out of the engine compartment while I was driving it down the Freeway. I think I am going to put a Wrench on every bolt in this truck before its all said and done.

The last guy might have left off the washer and the lock washer, and didn't have any locktite- I can hear it now, "oh, that's tight enough for now, I'll come back and finish snugging 'em up later".

He also had the oil diverters in Backwards or the plate that goes below the Rocker Assemblies. Not exactly sure how he did it but he did.. I'm Glad I decided to do a Full Blown Resto on this truck rather than a Quick turn around. I will be a Great Truck when its all done but it will take a bit more work than I was anticipating. Glad there is absolutely no Rust on this Truck!!!

To Be completely Fair to the guy that owned the truck before me, he got into a huge Car Accident and had Brain Injuries so who know how or why Im finding so many issues on the truck.

So I started Working on the Wiring in my Wifes 67 Mustang today. Been finding it kind of hard to get motivated since the Recent Tragedy in our Family. But today was my Birthday and My Wife asked me what I wanted to do and I told her, work on getting the wiring done on her 67 Mustang. Made a good push towards that today. Once we get the Mustang Done its back to work on the 71 Pickup!!! Cant Waite...
