Another truck transmission install over the weekend.
We are getting quite good at them 3 hours and everything back in.
We did have a mystery no start condition where the starter would briefly try to energize and quit.
It's 24 year old truck so we checked everything, removed and bench tested the old starter.
Cleaned every bolt and connection and stuck it back in.
Seems good so far.

Pulled it apart 2 weeks after I bought it.
The entire front suspension K frame and all came out , new ball joints, bushings, shocks , etc etc
Pull the engine to repair leaking core plug in the head , painted and detailed everything while it was out

Got all new hoses, belts, plugs , wires , etc etc etc , Needless to say it snowballed bigtime

Fired it up for the 1st time since then today. It lives again. ( finally ) Exhaust manifolds were media blasted since these pics were taken
Goes in next week for manifolds back dual exhaust system. I got rid of the headers .

Just to get it going --- What is everone working on?
Recently purchased a 71 charger se . Have been tearing down and sanding. Have been able to get most of the parts I need for electrical and interior parts and carpet . Body parts however are a different story I looked everywhere yearone,tony's,rays,amd,and carid raybucks in PA had one for right side for $574 plus $200 shipping is that reasonable?

Is anything regarding shipping reasonable? Hmm. Jury is out for deliberation.

Got my door panels after 8 months from legendary. Putting in the little sill extenders was made easy by MoparNation74s GTX build. Used for carpet as well. I’d rather pull a motor than do this again.
