It was 65* here today in SC so I worked on the ramp. Got the heater boxes all cleaned out and got the fan working. Took the switch all a part cleaned the contacts with a wire brush and put some electric grease in it put it back together and wall'a it works even on high. I have heat and defrost now. Got the ash tray out and cleaned the ball bearings up and lubed it it slides in and out nicely now.
A month ago I put the new aluminium radiator in it so I did the over flow tank today. No more leaks are puking on the ground.
Next is brakes.
Went and picked up a Booster and master cylinder late this afternoon for it. Going to get it stopping just fine now I hope. I need to get a E brake setup for it. It's impossible to load a vehicle without a e brake. Got to buy tires some time also. Got to get the seat recovered also.
My buddy has a factory tilt wheel for it also and I have the old corvette steering wheel for it. $75.00 for the tilt ant bad at all + dash pad also.


This is going to be a cheap build well up til I do the LS motor swap!


More to come!

You dirty dogs....it is barely that warm inside here. (Well maybe not)

We got 4" last night and I definitely start the car about 15 minutes before I drive off.

A high of 44 today, and now 21.

I got the steering wheel on and the horn working. There was so much grease and dirt inside the old steering wheel the horn wouldn't work. I cleaned everything up and it's working. I broke one of the tabs off the corvette wheel so the horn button is in side being glue back together. Should be fine I'll see tomorrow.

The rod from the brake to the booster is wrong so I have to order another one.

The Ramp Rat has power brakes now thanks to a friend.
Soon it will have tilt wheel added. New dash pad and fan shroud.
After getting the booster in I drove it over to a a customers house and worked on his golfcart then to town to fill it up. Brakes worked good. Now I need the disc brakes setup from a newer model truck.

Well yesterday before the snow storm I got the brake booster all done and working. Today I took the dash out and cleaned it up good. Put all new bulbs in the dash and swapped out the oil gauge that wasn't working. Pulled the speedo cable out and clean it.
Will install it tomorrow. Got dark on me.

Took the e brake handle out also for now until I can figure out how to hook them back up and make them functional.

Dash back in and working almost. The speedo is all over the place. I got a deal on a factory Tilt wheel for $75.00 ready to go in.The oil gauge is working. Another friend has 2 old clusters he sold me for $20.00 for both I have to go get them next weekend. So when I do the new tilt I'll swap out the speedo as well.



For now the heater core is torn a part to fix. It started leaking this afternoon so I took it out and ordered a new one will be here Tuesday.
It need a new one by the look of the inside of it. The pictures tell all.

Don't have any pictures of the tilt but here are the clusters. They are the standard ones with no gauges in the bottom. But for $20.00 I took them. You never know when you need parts.

2 clusters for $20.00 not bad.

While you have the cowl screen off I would suggest making a screen out of hardware screen with 1/4" squares. Painted flat black they are practically invisible and the screen will keep trash from building up in your heater and the vents.

The screen is available at most hardware stores.
Cut outs for the nozzles and wiper transmissions are needed. I use two pieces 4" wide so as to adapt to the curvature of the cowl area. When installed 4 of the cowl screen screws go through the hardware screen trapping it in place.

Yes this is one of my future mods. I will use the black screen porch screen though easier to work with and it's just penny's to install and replace. I did this to my 71 many years ago. It's fiberglass screen so it has held up well.

Glad to hear that fiber glass screens hold up well as I was thinking that it would not last!

My oldest screen is 15 years old and still looks good.

Yesterday was a good day for the Ramp Rat!

Scored a tilt wheel out of a van for $75.00 and it's good and tight. Also a dash cover and another heater box which is in much better shape than mine. All for $135.00.I'll get some pictures of the heater later today when I get it installed.

70* here today so I got some work done on the ramp.

Got the passenger side exhaust done. Both sides are the same now sounds much better. I saved the MG mufflers and pipes off my 64 Impala SS when I redid it.
I got all the cab marker lights working the passenger front fender marker fixed.

[COLOR="Red"]Another day another score! Picked up a bench seat and electric washer out of a Chevy truck for $100.00.
The seat has the arm rest in it and the one in my 71 was nice so I hope this one will seat good to.
The seat will need to be cleaned good and the old took out. I need a couple of days to do it and the next few weeks are going to be full. So that's on hold for awhile.

Got the jug mounted & wired but need the water hoses to complete.

For the guy's who want to do this mod a little info on wiring.
The pump is hot all the time. Run the red wire from pump to 12 volts. I placed a 20 amp fuse inline with it also. Run the ground to the dash switch and plug it to the inside wire on the switch. When you push the wiper button in the pump is activated.
The switch has 3 wires connected to it with a plastic holder. 2 wires are side by side the inside one is the one you want.

Are those spray nozzles off of a van? I thought about switching to wiper mounted nozzles at one time, but never followed through with it.

To be honest it's been so long ago I have forgotten what I got them off of. I did those close to 15 years ago on my 71.
When I find some though I will surely post what they came off of!

Got the washer jug lines ran and the sprayer's where clogged up so they are soaking over night to get whatever inside of them out. Hope to finish that up tonight and reinstall.

Since I had the cowl off I cut and installed screen under the vents to keep trash and such out of it in the future. I used putty to hold it in place until I reinstall it then it can't move.

Got the washer jug lines ran and the sprayer's where clogged up so they are soaking over night to get whatever inside of them out. Hope to finish that up tonight and reinstall.

Since I had the cowl off I cut and installed screen under the vents to keep trash and such out of it in the future. I used putty to hold it in place until I reinstall it then it can't move.

Took the old seat out and replaced with a 90 model seat. Put the drivers side 3 point harness in have to make a LQ yard run to pick up some more belts for the passenger side. Installed the new strobe light also.

Took the hump out and sealed it up good and put more screws in it.
Got to get a rubber mat for it and the inside should be done.
Check the strobe video here:

You've got a beautiful truck man! Love seeing the progress you've been making. Also, truck sounds good in that video of the strobe light!

Thank you sir.
I got the drivers side shoulder harness in and the fan shroud installed today.
If your interested in installing one of these seats check my little discovery out while doing mine yesterday.
the front frame work has 2-58" bolts on each side. Take them loose but not out. The holes are slotted and will let the frame line right up with the floor pan holes. Then mark rear holes and move seat out of the way and drill them. I also put 2 large nuts under the rear mounting holes to make the seat level.

I got the winch temporarily installed for now. Have to get some bar stock for it to reinforce the floor for mounting it.
I have to take the controller a part and put longer leads in it to reach the battery up front. I have also thought about adding a extra 12 volt battery under the bed.
