Mike, welcome to the Stovebolt. Sounds like you have many memories in that truck and its great you have posession of it. We are all here to help. Just post questions in the garage forums and you'll get answers.
...and be sure to watch out for Bolters from your area. They are for them. They are the B.C. Bolters. I met a bunch of them a few years ago. Great guys.
