i used the open end for the other fitting. If you wedge one of the lips into the hole you can turn it pretty easy and it doesn't mess up the threads

Now slip the gasket on his hangy parts so it doesn't leak.

Go ahead and carefully run the bolts into the motor now. Mine kept trying to cross thread. Maybe my fingers are crooked. You don't need to torque them down to 9000 lbs either. Just snug.

Here my phone got too hot and quit working (97 degrees at this time) so I couldn't take a pic, but you should connect the bottom hose once the motor bolts are connected. Otherwise you won't ever get anywhere.



I found I had to take the line off the fuel filter up by the carb to get the top line to reconnect right. Notice I had a screwdriver now. Much easier!

Then I connected my carb to pump line snugly.

And finally I just had to reconnect the fuel line to the filter.

And that was it! I then connected my battery to the wrong posts and fried my new alternator. ARRGH!!! But I was able to get her started and let her run again. It took about 30 seconds of crank to get gas to the carb. Then she fired right up and ran sooo smooth! I'm surprised by how much different she sounds. I guess the poor girl was starvin!

I'll replace the alternator offsite because I already did that once not too long ago, then Cecilia's taking me and the kids to the dump to get rid of old fence material.


Thanks for reading!

Nice write up Fetch. Just a word about new fuel pumps, check the bolt on the bottom of the bowl of the pump to make sure it is tight. Mine was leaking after I installed it. Easiest to tighten when off, and don't ham fist it either, we don't want to crack the lil darlin'.

Thanks for another down to earth writeup Fetch. Glad to know you are getting along ok. If Foley would have been able to find you he would have dropped by like he did us in 2014!

Oh, sneaky! I didn't think about it being loose anywhere. I'll give that a check this evening. I've got a free hour and I was going to monkey with the 2nd gear thing anyway. I'll be sure to get it done then!

Well I thought my "won't stay in second gear" thing was an issue with the linkage but it seems like even if I run it all the way up it still doesn't stay in second. Might have to pull the transmission again and see what's shakin in there. Maybe I put it together wrong?

Just spitballin as I fiddle with ideas today...

Mine has a tendency to grind into 4th unless I wait longer than normal shifting. Syncros probably a tad worn. lol

The baby's birthday came and went this past weekend so I took her annual photo on Cecilia. Last year I just put her on a bucket that was about stepside height but that made me feel bad. So I spent 20 minutes piddling around and put the driver's side step back on her before the photography session this time.

I love that I can work on Cecilia with a couple of screwdrivers, a set of standard wrenches, and a set of standard sockets. I can just about fix anything on her with that set of tools. Old trucks are awesome

Since I took the step off I put it back together much easier, knowing what I was getting into. Old me would have bolted the top of the step first. New me put the angle bracket on first this time.

Putting the bracket up in the rails got my eyes full of crusty dust, but it was expected. Cecilia drops her flakes where she pleases. It's punishment for not Por-15'ing her when I had the bed off

After getting the bracket attached I put in the five or so bolts along the bottom. Tiny 7/16" little suckers. Hard to hold on to with gloves.

For comparison here's the first pic at 1 year old. Notice The Redhead hiding behind the spare tire in the bed. She held The Baby up until the moment of the pic then ducked back down for a split second to snap the pic, then popped back up and made sure The Baby didn't fall.
