Got the new, supposedly correct, heater core cobbled into place. I had ordered the ‘62 C-10 standard core from Summit Racing, good price and free shipping. When it arrived it appeared to be right but when it came time to install it the pipes were not lined up with the holes in the heater housing. Sawzall, hole saw, tin snips, some black paint and an old license plate and the heater core is in place. It will work and doesn’t look too bad. It will all come out anyway when the Vintage Air unit goes in.

BTW, do not order the listed heater core for a ‘62 C-10 from Summit Racing and expect it to fit without modifications to the heater box.

I'd have to charge at least $3000 u.s. to get close to $4 an hour on this one. I'll leave this as a "only one I've ever seen".

Used my home built engine leveler to pull the engine off the stand. Then installed the newly painted bell housing, flywheel and clutch kit. Then set the engine on the cart till it gets installed in the chassis (probably when the snow melts in the spring.) Had a little issue getting the old pilot bushing out, and had to make a custom attachment for the slide hammer. Other than that, things went pretty well.

My customer came in a year ago telling me his engine didn't run-in his 41 AK. Can I make it run? Oh, and replace the flatbed/stakebed with a new bed, and oh, rebuild the engine and... and... Full paint job...

I'm getting close to engine start now.. then drop the missing body parts on and get it out of here.. By January??

Been under the weather for about a week so I had been putting off finishing the heater core install. I had left off with the new core in place but not plumbed in. Felt better today so I cut hoses to the desired length and installed the new universal heater control valve. Changed the 3/4” fitting on the water pump for a 5/8” fitting and installed all the hoses. Tightened everything up and filled with antifreeze. Fired the engine and got it to operating temperature. No leaks so I’m calling the job finished.

Nice job on the leveler. I cut down a bolt to fit the ID of the bushing (.003”-.005” clearance) in my lathe, filled the bushing with grease then hit it with a hammer. The hydraulic force just pushed out the bushing. Easy Peasy!

Today I installed the headliner / bows/ etc. in my truck. Just as I had read on here, the headliner was too long front to back. I had to trim nearly 3/4 inch off of it. Not a big deal, especially since I had read that I should expect that. Looks pretty nice.

Well. After 3 weeks of time time out in the hospital I was given the ok to start work on the 46. Replacement engine is on the hoist. Pulled the trans. Pulled clutch assembly. Pulled the bell housing. Looks like the rear seal needs to be replaced. Want to run a compression test before we reassemble. Got the old window wiper rubber out, thanks to Stovebolt. Picked up the garage so I can move? Bit tired so I will put off doing more until next year.

Painted my tailgate this week, Mini Cooper ice blue. Letters are a Toyota white. I painted the letters with four coats of white then painted the tailgate and color sanded the blue off the letters. My fingers are aching!

Troubleshooting gremlins in the wiring to the tail lights, brake lights and turn signals on the ‘62 C-10. Ran out of daylight so the gremlins went to bed. I’ll wake them up when the weather cooperates by warming up.
