Housekeeping (Moderator) Making a Stovebolt Bed & Paint and Body Shop Forums
Yesterday, I got the crease hammered out of the driver's door. Woke up to day with a big bruise on my left forearm from holding the dolly inside the door thru the lower opening. frown

So I decided it would be a good day to do welding instead of hammer and dolly work. I got the driver's side cowl patched up. Just a little more welding to do in the portion that the hood covers up.

Done installing my aluminum radiator and replacing the hoses. It's also time to upgrade the look of my k20 so I bought new wheels here-- pro comp [4wheelonline.com].

Got the front bumper off my '51 and shot some WD-40 into the bolts holding my seat adjustment to the cab. Luckily I only broke 1 out of 6 bolts holding the front bumper to the chassis, now to remove the front bumper from the chassis mounts, which will be fun.

Went back out this afternoon and removed the seat adjustment bars, radiator, coil, fuel filter, carburetor, drained the oil and pulled off the valve cover and side panel that covers up the pushrods, found that the #4 cylinder has a bent pushrod but all the lifters still look good and function well. The engine spins freely when I use the hand starter crank that my Grandfather kept under the bench seat.

I put on a new fuel pump hoping and praying a bad, bad sound would go away. It didn't.

But I really like the new pump. It had bolt holes which were much roomier around than the old pump. The old pump required an open end wrench (box end or socket would not slip on) using the left hand to turn the bolt a bit - followed by flipping the wrench and turning the bolt another bit. These are long bolts. Whew!!!!

I could use a socket wrench on the new pump.

I really dont like taking my truck apart because I enjoy driving it so much but...... I really wanted to install all the new interior and clean up and paint inside so this weekend I tore it apart really fast and really far so that I was 100% committed hahaha. Its coming out great. Check out my build in the project journals.

Went to Rosedale in BC and picked up a PTO drive for a Clark 205v and an intake/exhaust manifold for the 302.
