I installed the OD trans last week and today picked up the driveshaft and will install it tomorrow (Tuesday) and take it on a test drive.

Hey remember how my spedometer was always reading real high? Remember how I was holding off buying a set of speedo gears until I had the 4:10 diff I wanted?

Well, after we put that diff in that I bought from you - the speedo is spot on! I'm guessing that the van that the 700r4 came out of had a 4:10 in it too.
The thought had occurred to me that might be the case, but I never "luck-out" like that so I dismissed it. What a pleasant surprise!

You have just discovered on your own one major advantage to being a pessimist. Pessimists are never disappointed, and occasionally they are pleasantly surprised.

Damn. That should be worth an extra $100. You know where to send the check.. I am going to go install my new pull cable now for my trans.

What kind of cable did you get for your OD?

Just an aftermarket cable from Dorman. I installed it to the dash so far. I just didn't feel like crawling under the truck yesterday.

Hooked up. Now I just have to replace my headlights. I also found the other fill plug and filled the back of the trans up.

The other day I swapped out my voltage regulator and when I went to put the battery cable back onto the battery post, the clamp broke as I was tightening it.

Today was change the battery cable day, which involved me having to drop the starter, so yay that I had it up on the ramps.

Broke the little solenoid wire, fixed that, got the new cable snugged down and routed. Bolted starter up, hooked up battery cable, lights and radio came on, electric fuel pump was humming and then no starter action.

now what?

After checking and troubleshooting several things, I realized that somehow I put the small solenoid wire on the wrong post.

jeez. I think maybe I should stop working on things. haha.

Got that swapped over, put battery cable back on and hit the switch : vrooom!

Yay.

Happy Wrenchin' everyone.

I finally took the ugly brown seat cover off the back of the seat today. I am so thankful that they didn't remove the original cover. Had to clean the seat for it just to look like it dose now. Is there anyone out there that makes seat covers like this? Too bad the bottom seat is all ripped up. I want to remove that one also but need something to put over the ripped part. It is better then they ugly brown cover..
I also installed new mirrors. The driver mirror rusted off and the right one just fell off.

'65 C10

was on the way to work last night and noticed the blinkers blinking slowly, so electrical system...

checked it out today, no charging from the alternator... found a broken wire going to the alternator... jumped it with a wire and some alligator clips, suddenly charging. ok... a broke wire, I can fix.

So, new butt connector and all is well again.

old trucks are fun.

There was a small wire that went from the voltage regulator to the back of the alternator that broke, again. I decided to solder it together this time. So... heated up both ends, dabbed a little solder... then shaped 'em in a hook, then hooked 'em together... heated 'em up together, dabbed a bit more and ta da. Then I heated up the shrink wrap to cover it up nicely.

While I was there, I decided to do the other wire as well... that part went pretty well.

Then I was putting the battery cable back on and noticed the clamp was broken... again. Back to the parts store! I bought a replacement clamp instead of the entire cable... cut the overly long cable to length and put the replacement clamp on.

It's always something extra coming up, isn't it?

Old trucks are fun!
