'62 went to the alignment/brake shop this morning. New brakes all the way around. Decided to farm out that job to the pros. I was surprised at how well it drove and rode, except for trying to go to the right barrow ditch when you applied the brake.šŸ›

In the past month or so on my '65 Chevy C10 :

had new exhaust put on by the professionals.

had a oil leak with the nylon hose for the Oil PSI gauge, the hardest part of fixing that was getting to it, it is next to the distributor on a SBC and sorta under that indented area in the firewall.

Noticed the diff. was leaking, I *think* from the gasket cover... so I replaced it today, still have to top off the fluid. The instructions on the goop box said to let cure for 24 hours... so here are a few in progress action shots:

Happy riding and wrenchin' folks,

Dusty - I know that exact feeling!

on my '65 long bed, it has a two piece drive shaft, the one in the center doesn't last very long. grin

I filled up the differential on the rear axle today on the old '65 c10 after putting the cover back on yesterday.

pump pump pump. Those little gear oil pumps are handy folks. grin

Took it for a little spin.

Yay. grin

Finally got the truck in the garage to replace the failed 4 link mounts only to discover the left hand axle tube has fractured nearly 360 degrees,the crack had followed a ground down weld left over from the removal of a previously offending,poorly engineered 4 link set-up.!
That might explain why I was getting an oil leak (I thought the vent was at fault initially)and a strange intermittent vibration from the rear end which i'd chalked up to the pinion angle being slightly off due to the aforementioned mounts which had cracked along the full length of a TIG weld. (Both sides,a year apart did this)
I'm horrified to think what could have happened had the whole thing let go......

I just with this truck would stop biting my 'A'.

Got the '62 C-10 back from the shop. Now stops in a straight line instead of heading to the ditch. All new brake parts front and back with the exception of the parking brake hardware. It was missing when I bought the truck and I haven't had any luck finding parts. Installed the new cat whiskers in the doors. Windows no longer rattle. Baby steps.šŸ›

Removed the gas tank on the '62 C-10 in preparation for the new tank which arrives tomorrow. When I emptied the gas there was so much rust I'm surprised the engine ran at all. Replacing tank and sending unit along with the lines tank to carb.šŸ›
