Saturday morning I departed home on a 120 mile round trip road trip to a race shop and swap meet. it was a pretty day, the sun shining riding with the windows down enjoying my surroundings when all of a sudden I have hot running water in the cab of the truck.So I had to stop on the side of the road and disconnect the heater, luckily I had 1 gallon of water behind the seat. Back on the road made it to my destination attended the swap meet and headed back home. Cruising at 65 mph turning 2300 rpm with my t5 overdrive. When I made it back home ,stopped to fill the tank with gas and find the brake pedal slowly sinking to the floor. I guess now will be the time to change to the dual cylinder master cylinder. All in all it was still a good day in the sunshine for a nice ride.

Tommy, nothing like a nice drive in the winter when temps allow windows down. Also great when trouble strikes, and one's prepared.

Kevin, that's some great work. Hopefully I'll remember your technique when/if I need to do something similar.

Assigned machine duties as usual. Throttle shaft clashed with the coolant outlet tube on an LS with a FiTech port injector set up on a 1970 Jimmy(Blazer) mounted on a 2002 Tahoe 4wd chassis. The shaft needed shortened and a new set screw flat milled. Couldn't tap the shaft out of the accelerator cable pulley so bored a 25/64 hole in a 3/4" round stock to fit down over the 3/8 diameter throttle shaft; couldn't press on the end of the shaft as it is weak from the long slot in the center where the throttle plate goes. Used a 9/16 socket as a receiver for the pressed out shaft. Found out the reason the shaft wouldn't tap out is FiTech uses a SECOND set screw on top of the one that locks the cable pulley to the shaft. Needless to say the 55 ton press jut pushed the set screw out the side of the aluminum throttle cable pulley. Milled out the entire damage in the original set screw area, built up with the tig welder, milled surface flat and even with the adjoining surface, then drilled and tapped a new set screw hole. Now a mere two hours later I shortened the throttle shaft and milled a new set screw flat on it. Could only charge the customer for a half hour.

After 3 attempts I finally got the heater controls and heater box to fit into the same space.


Another quality post.

Got the right side inner cab corner and rocker welded in today. The cab is finally starting to go back together. Was able to remove the bracing across the right side door opening as well once the rocker was in place. Put a little patch on the floor as well.

I tore down and rebuilt my AD speedometer. I guess the first time around I wasn’t thorough enough. Lubed up and works great...on the drill. We will see how she performs on the 2nd “first drive” when the roads aren’t slush.

Jeez Kevin...you’re brave! Looking good, fella!

Even though it was yesterday, I finished up patching the passenger side floor and toeboard for my '58. Now to do the driver's side, it should be much easier and quicker!
