Hey 88, it's at the shop. I just bought it a couple weeks ago, and had the following done:
1) Valve cover gaskets (it had NONE)
2) Donut gasket (rusted)
3) New push rods (had 1 bent)
4) Blower motor, heater core, heater hoses
5) Oil change + engine flush
6) Sway bar reconnected
7) Rebuild the carb

Probably missed a few things... it's late lol. Should have it out soon.:cry
wow how much did that cost you?

I was going to drive it to work for the first time....but my title is lost so I can't get a tag. This really really really sucks
Well me too. But the nice officer let me go. And to boot I had my kids in the back and the top was off. It was a good day

But today it's too damn cold to change the tie-rod. And the sum bitch is too big to fit in the garage. Just surfed looking for ways to get it back in tip top shape on FSB

Oil Change, Greased the front end and all the U-Joints, flushed the coolant, cleaned the K&N, and sea foamed the truck today. Still need to do some other stuff like; drain and fill the diffs and transfer case, do a tune up (Plugs, upgraded wires, cap, rotor, pcv and fuel filter) fix the door handle...there's some more I just cant remember right now

All told, $500 parts and labor. Between the repairs and purchase price I'll have $1,500.00 in it by the time it hits the driveway.

Thanks for the luck :thumbup

as for today... I drove past the shop and admired "The Wallet Thief's" dirty white, surface rusty a$$ from the street... MMM sexy :D

Oil gauge started bouncing around... so after I stopped sweating bullets, I the checked connections and oil level. No odd noises or vibrations so I'm hoping it's just a sender needing to be replaced.

I stuffed caulk saver into my collapsed door seal, as dirty as that sounds, it really was a pain in my ass.

Started her up because she hasn't been started in probably 3 weeks (maybe more). It was close to zero out last night and I didn't want anything to freeze up. She started right up and I let her run for a while before I had to go to work.

Hope to get some work done on charge cables and my HID light conversion this weekend.
