Outside working season is just about done here in Central Oklahoma. We have a warm day every now and then. Unusually rainy Fall this year. So if its warm it has been raining. No cover in the work area. That being said, I have been poking away at the little stuff. PCV system, fuel delivery and vacuum advance. Running hoses,lines and wires. My goal of finishing before my upcoming Hip replacement surgery is fading rapidly. Wiring is kicking my butt. When we took out the 6 my son removed all the under dash wires from the fuse block. He knows where they go, I don't. No power at the fuse block. Tracing wires is not my forte. With 5 kids and a 2 hour daily commute to work ole Dad is on the back burner. Next spring is looking more realistic unless I can find a shop willing to finish the wiring. If so, I'll bite the bullet and trailer the '62 to them. Patience is a virtue I do not possess. eeeek

Long talk with my co-conspirator (son) last night at dinner. It was agreed upon to trailer the ‘62 C-10 to his house where he can do the wiring at his own pace. Still a couple of small things to prep the truck for it’s 2 1/2 mile trip.

Well after 1 1/2 hours of banging my hand with a hammer cutting the lock out of the winch box (couldn’t find the key) and fiddling with the in/out switch I finally got the ‘62 loaded. Couple of band aids and some neosporen (at least I didn’t need an ambulance) and we were on the road for the short trip to my sons. Once there we off-loaded and gave Terry B a list of electrical stuff he needs to do. Back home in time for the last 88 laps of the Napcar race. 🛠

Received an update from Terry B (see his ‘53 3100 in the Gallery) just awhile ago. Wiring is 80% complete. The engine cranks, I had given him specific instructions not to try to start it but it was ok to “bump” the starter to test it. He is mounting the torque converter lockup in the dash so he’s got a little dremel tool work to do. The engine harness was redone. Progress!

I have been somewhat dissatisfied with the headers since I put the motor in the truck. The “Shortys” exit right on top of the front crossmember making it necessary to have the header pipe make an immediate 45 degree turn to the rear from the collector. Tight space to work in. Made the decision to put conventional headers on. None of the usual suppliers have headers for SBC listed for 1962 C-10’s. Closest I could get was 1963, so I’m hoping they will fit without much modification.🛠

Torque converter lockup switch is in. It looks like the factory installed it. Mounted in the dash just to the left of the radio. Next up is wiring the steering column harness so the signals and horn operate. Rewiring the radio and speakers. Cleaning up the underdash wiring and installing new wire loom throughout. We are close but it looks like it’s not going to be finished before my pending surgery. We will get it back over here from Terry B’s and back on the lift before the snow falls. I can keep the battery on a tender that way.🛠

....Martin, just be glad the doctors don't just do "fifteen minutes a day" or you could be down for a long time. hehe

Good luck. Hope all goes well and your back to your 15 minutes soon!
