Today I found a place that can work on 216 engines professionally for a reasonable price in Reno which is only a hour and a half away. So I'll be taking the engine out, fixing the clutch, and repairing any necessary items that need fixing. I'll be keeping you posted on the progress. Thanks for stopping by! smile

Hello all,
Just got off the front two fenders and hopefully will have the motor out by Sunday-Monday. This is a really fun pickup to work on. The odometer shows 95 thousand miles, it looks like the original gauge, still are in good shape though. Just keeping up on posting. Thanks for stopping by! smile

I almost had it done today, but I had a lot of work on the farm that came first. Tomorrow night will be the night for sure though since I'm all ready! smile Here's how close I got: http://i1142.photobucket.com/albums/n611/19Chevy38Guy/38%20Chevy/IMG_1398.jpg
I just needed to take off the two bolts on the front engine mount and the four bolts on the transmission and I'll be set. Here is all the stuff I took off of it: http://i1142.photobucket.com/albums/n611/19Chevy38Guy/IMG_1384.jpg

So hopefully I'll get this done sometime this year, by the end of November. Thanks for stopping by and I'll be keeping you all posted! smile

I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

I finally got the motor out! http://i1142.photobucket.com/albums/n611/19Chevy38Guy/38%20Chevy/IMG_1424.jpg I got the bell housing off, hopefully that's how you spell it! smile http://i1142.photobucket.com/albums/n611/19Chevy38Guy/38%20Chevy/IMG_1425.jpg I'll be taking the motor in next Monday, and then it's off with the cab and bed next! Keep you posted during this adventure! Thanks for stopping by.

Good day"

What a day-or hour I should say! http://i1142.photobucket.com/albums/n611/19Chevy38Guy/38%20Chevy/IMG_1445.jpg I bolted off the cab and bed and had my brother help me lift the bed off by hand and I did the cab myself with the forklift! http://i1142.photobucket.com/albums/n611/19Chevy38Guy/38%20Chevy/IMG_1448.jpg
The frame is in good shape, I just need to replace all the old brake and fuel lines. Here's a picture before I washed it: http://i1142.photobucket.com/albums/n611/19Chevy38Guy/38%20Chevy/IMG_1450.jpg and here is one after I washed it: http://i1142.photobucket.com/albums/n611/19Chevy38Guy/38%20Chevy/IMG_1452.jpg
I sure am having a lot of fun. Monday I'll be taking the engine in and start sanding the old rig and preping it for primer and then paint! Thanks for stopping by! I'll be keeping you posted.

My 38 has 2 running board brackets on each side and you have 3.I didn't think they made long beds.




Why work on one truck when I can work on two and get half as much done.
