Fired up my 235ci after 7 years of resto. Did not get time to tune it but very happy!

Fitted new air filter using OE housing.

Celebrated by trying out filter cup holder.

A great night!

Thanks for the pictures, the truck looks great and pics are a great way to help folks that are struggling to finish their own project. It took me six years to do a complete rebuild and I do understand all the headaches a project like that entails. Good luck with the finish.

My 54 3100 had a leaking right front wheel cylinder. I replaced it and cleaned up the mess ,repacked the bearings..its good to go..I was thinking that I had replace the front wheel cylinders years ago,but, no I had not. Both original and not a problem with them at all.Till the right one started leaking.. not bad for a 65 year old truck! Next will be the master cylinder. Its staring to leak now.

The "round-tuit" has finally arrived, pulled the old 216 from my 49 3100 and preparing the rebuilt 235 for install. As is always the case I've found some issues to address while the clip and engine is removed. But considering I'm dealing with an original 70 yr old farm truck I'm amazed and impressed at how little is needing addressed. A frame - off is not in this particular phase, getting it back roadable and as close to stock is.

With the annual cruise event coming up this weekend I decided the idiot lights in the dash were just not going to cut it. The cruise usually bogs down as we make the turn around downtown. A 3/4 mile backup is the norm for the first 45 minutes. A lot of the cars overheat in the slow crawl and 95* temps. So far “Blue” has not shown signs of overheating but I don’t want to take a chance. Installed a Water Temp gauge and a Voltage gauge under the dash. Couple hours work for peace of mind. Deep cleaning is on the Friday to do list.

Ordered a new fuel pump-to-carb steel fuel line from Inline Tube and it arrived yesterday. Installed it this evening and it fit like a glove. The bends were perfect. Was worried about leaks, but after a couple of tightening-loosening-tightening sessions so the flares would seat good I fired up the 216 and not a drop of gasoline was seen. Looking forward to a short cruise this weekend.

Took the Fire Engine to a small show on Saturday and as I was backing it into the shop at the end of the day, the water pump started leaking anti-freeze. So, I replaced the pump, added new coolant and changed the oil and filter while I was there. I was glad it didn't decide to leak while on the road!
