  1. So many benefits to an in-tank pump. They run quieter and cooler (which makes them last longer) and it's easier to avoid starvation problems with a submerged pump. A generic pump, like one from https://www.tanksinc.com/ would be pretty easy to plumb into a stock fuel tank. You just need to double check the pressure requirements before you buy. These are the pumps I use - https://www.tanksinc.com/index.cfm/page/ptype=product/product_id=84/category_id=61/mode=prod/prd84.htm Also, a three-way fuel filter/regulator means you don't need a return line all the way to the engine bay. https://www.tanksinc.com/index.cfm/page/ptype=product/product_id=425/category_id=172/mode=prod/prd425.htm
  2. I looked into getting vehicles from South America and I found out that there were eight customs stops along the way, and every one of those stops would benefit from greased palms.
  3. Later 620 had balljoints and disc brakes. 720s had the same basic suspension/brake setup. Convert to the later suspension and get the disc brakes too.
  4. The temperature of the paint, the part and the ambient temp are important with these newer paints. When it's cold out, I will walk around with the paint in my pocket for a while to warm it up, or I'll hit it with a heat gun. The part could be warmed up as well. Sometimes I use a heat gun the preheat the parts, sometimes I stick them in my toaster oven. For high heat paint, I have always found it best to apply onto a hot surface, like maybe 150-200 degrees.
  5. It may take some trial and error to figure out exactly what the ECU needs to communicate with. You can't believe everything you read online either. Most guys out there don't actually care how it runs, or don't ever get it there, so taking advice from these people is not a great idea.
  6. I do a lot of LS swaps in Toyota Land Cruisers and sometimes the customer opts to use an aftermarket shifter, but sometimes they want to keep the original Toyota shifter. The reason I bring this up is because you could probably use a generic floor shifter from someone like https://www.lokar.com/ . I bet that the shift detents are in a similar range but the geometry may require some math. When I use a Toyota shifter with a GM hydromatic trans, I simply lengthen the Toyota shift arm to the length required to match the throw of the arm on the trans.
  7. The booster could be the whole problem. If it has a massive vacuum leak, the ECU could be compensating. Engine swaps using OEM ECUs can be tricky. Often times, not every part that came int he engine's original platform are installed during the swap. On my first EFI swap (about 20 years ago) I had to play around with what the ECU needed to run well. It was trial and error.
  8. Still listed with zinc chromate on McMaster-Carr.
  9. Try https://www.differentials.com/ or https://www.randysworldwide.com/product-category/ring-pinion-gear-sets?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIrJzDuMaN5wIViobACh3MzghcEAAYASAAEgL24PD_BwE
  10. Try your local upholstery shop. They will have the info you need, and maybe even have the material. They could probably install it for a couple hundred bucks. I found this online, but it's white - https://actionup.com/shop/perforated-marine-headliner/ This too - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Black-Headliner-Material-Perforated-Vinyl-Foam-Back-By-the-Yard-54-Wide-/261993774731
  11. Can't see them, but my pics that I upload through PB don't come out blurry.
  12. There was an article in a restoration magazine a few years back that commented on the subject of GR8 vs GR5. One often overlooked difference between the two grades is the plating, not just the color, but the quality of the plating. GR8 bolts have a yellow zinc chromate plating which is vastly superior to the bright coating of GR5. I buy most of my generic hardware from https://www.mcmaster.com/
  13. I pay $50 per year for my Photobucket account and it solves a lot of those problems everyone hates about PB.
  14. This truck has tons of potential. I could go crazy on it.
  15. Sounds like the flapper door is shut.
