Came in Saturday morning and finished up the shifter install. Total pain, but small balls need lots of love.
Parts have been stacking up for this one.
Going to finish the brake system today. Unstuck, blasted and rattle can painted some OG brake hardware. Fresh German rear drums epoxy sealed, paint when dry. Assembling front wheel cylinders now.
We will build it if it comes.FranzKeymasterOctober 15, 2019 at 2:09 pmPost count: 2803

Patient is on the table. Franz was rounding up engine tin for this yesterday.
Sorry for the delayed post. Update of last weeks progress.
I noticed link pins were missing grease seals. Pulled spindles, checked shims for correct camber, reinstalled and greased.
Front and rear brakes together. Axle boot clamps installed.
Tested and assembled horn.
Bulbs in. Semaphores and headlights in.
Front wheel bearings and drums packed, new seals in.
Starter, bowden tubes, clutch and throttle cables in and lubed.
Ebrake handle was missing the catch pawl. Harvested one from the parts stash. Franz tigged it in. We’re waiting on ebrake cables to arrive for install
We will build it if it comes.FranzKeymasterOctober 19, 2019 at 4:49 pmPost count: 2803
The heart of the engine. vj4br8 55-57 bus distributor…same as a 019. We’re going for a vintage look 1914cc doghouse w/heat. Concept 1 fan shroud with velocity ring and type IV cooler.
Epoxy sealer on the housing and clamp. OG screws.
Original cylinder tins always fit the best.John JonesKeymasterOctober 21, 2019 at 8:24 amPost count: 5604

Yeah speaking of this truck, I got back on the engine today. Cole is a Porsche guy or something now.
