System Freshening

DSCN1941_stitch

Changed out the leaky valve and tired switches on the air ride system and added a circuit breaker for safety. Transmission output shaft seal soon.

Was sort of comical, as soon as I got one leak sealed another pops up, this time resolving it with a new fitting doesn’t work. 2 steps forward one step back.

Snapped a pic of the farmstead while wrestling the steering gearbox out of the 81.

Parking brake lever assembly doesn’t look like it will come out easily.

Gremlin Chasing

Going to start trying to get the electrical sorted in the C10. Blinkers, back up lights, relays and circuit breaker on the compressors on the top of the list. Managed to find the electrical schematics for 80 and 83 but not 82. Guessing they’re the same.

Nearly Twistered

Big storm and funnel clouds rolled through north of us, sounded like a freight train for about :25 .. spooky

Before and After:

Best part is the hood closes now without hitting the air cleaner. Took maybe 6 hours for the intake manifold work … need to find someone who knows how to set timing well. Determind I have a leaky solenoid and roughed out the parts to get that sealed up.

Destination Unknown

Stayed close to home, kept busy, fixed last weekend’s mechanical with a $ .53 nylock nut.

Bean Dust Clouds

Late sunday latte joy ride interupted by nut on trans shifter input shaft loosening and preventing gear selection. Tow truck dispatch #1. Managed to get it tight (and working) with borrowed tools just as he pulled up.

Not before making some pics while verifying a crew cab tonneau doesn’t fit but one for an extended cab likely will.

Harvest time!
