I used to keep 500lbs of sand in the back of my F250. With an empty bed, that sucker would let go every time you stomped the pedal.

521-

Pulled my tach apart, re-installed the screw that holds the faceplate,

The ground is still soaked, so we'll see what gets done tomorrow-

 

(Maybe if it rains more I'll do some wet-sanding on the 620):rolleyes:

 

620-

Will mess with it when it's dry out,

need to drop the oil pump and retard the ignition drive spindle, swap the transmissions/driveshafts

and I'm keeping the Holley

I decided I would drive it today. First time since November. The battery went wo-wo, wouldn't turn it fast enough to start. Tomorrow I might jump-start it.

Put a heater fan motor in that a member gave me its nice to be warm again, took the car cover off my camaro to find the winter was hard on it even under a cover, the interior was green and fuzzy and the paint some spots that had little bubbles on it looked like a rash, so sad. car covers dont always do good!!

Took the 17 inch GMC rims off and put my stock 14s back on. Looks cool to me!:D

 

Pulled some really nice brake and clutch pedal pads off a 1969 in the JY and installed them instantly!

 

I pulled the grille, tailights too and some of those hard to find little rubber plugs that go in the hole in the door jamb between the hinges.

Pulled the dipstick out and checked the oil. Need to change it. Castrol Syntech is not cheap...good thing it lasts so much longer!:cool:
