Radiator bolts are snugged up and lower hose put on. Found some temporary valve cover bolts. Found the spark plug for number one cylinder and installed. Baby steps here.

It runs!!! Now the rear wheel cylinder is leaking and wont hold pressure. Looks like a brake job before I can drive it.

Good work!  It is always something with these old trucks.

Rear brakes done. I limped it up to the gas station to fill up the tires and gas it up. It ran real nice with lots of low end power compared to my l16's.

 

There was a grinding in the front wheel though. Sounds like a front brake job and r&r work on the bearings is next.

I had a few leaks I couldn't figure out where they were coming from. Ended up being the roof so I stripped it down and put some seam sealer all around it.
