    Today’s update, catching up from Sunday: got the U-joints out of the rear drive shaft (thanks Jim!). Got the emergency brake parts sand blasted and ready for paint. I have to replace two of the rivets holding the brake shoe pads. I hope I’ve got them somewhere around the bottomless parts pit. Monday for parts sorting. Eventually I’ll be ready to list the stuff... pics will be posted later today.

    Got a couple three hours in to it today. Started sanding the frame behind the passenger side and there was just too much stuff in the way. So, battery box is removed, step is removed and the frame mounted fuel filter removed. The filter was bypassed for some reason. Once I got it removed, I drained some extremely old gasoline with a stench that would stink a buzzard of a honey wagon. Cleaned it up, blew some compressed air through it and took it to the sandblaster. Wow! Big difference. It’s as good as new, just have to figure out a filter and new gaskets. The gaskets were paper based, it was that old! Pics:

    Update as of yesterday: finished stripping the rear drive shaft. Pulled the drive link from the parts cleaner, dried it off then sand blasted it. I also primered the fuel strainer bowl (note: the frame mounted “filter” is not a filter. It is a strainer. That’s what the book says anyway). The separator stack is disgusting. It’s soaking in some cleaning fluid. I’m probably going to stick it in the ultrasonic cleaner. Also, did some floor cleanup because it was getting hard to move around on the creeper. I pulled the battery mounts to clean them up. They’re nasty with rust damage. Not sure which way I’ll go to fix them. Pics:

    More sandblasting completed. Got the battery mount cleaned as well as the fire extinguisher mount. And finall, the rear axle bumpers. All ready for paint. Pics: note, I’ll add the battery mounts later. Forgot to take the after sandblasting pictures.
    Update: posted the cleaned up battery mount pictures. There’s quite a bit of corrosion damage to them. I’ll have to figure out a means of reinforcing them so they can safely hold the battery.

    Still plugging away at the sandblaster. Getting the parts cleaned up then primered and ready to reinstall. Nothing new to photo. It’ll be a couple days before I can get back to the truck. Spring brings out the honey-do list.

    Between the snow, migraines and extensive honey do list, I got very little done this week. I did get more sand blasting done. I prepped a bunch of parts for primering. I’ll just keep plugging along... found some pretty disgusting rust on the pillars. I’ll post better pics and show the before and after. pics:

    More parts cleaning. Sand blaster cabinet is getting a good workout. The portable sand blaster I bought from Sears about 25-30 years ago is finally proving its value as well. The sand blast media I got from Menard’s is good stuff (thanks Jim!). No pictures tonight. Hopefully I’ll have some next time I work on the truck.

    Got some catching up to do. Been sand blasting many parts. Also got the driver side door hinges out. With the rust on the pillars, I want to disassemble as much as possible to look for any other damage. The lower hinge was a bear. I broke an easy out and had to use a Dremel tool to dig it out. Also, started disassembly of the passenger door. Inside the door looks good, just dirty. Pics:

    I was inspecting the wiper motors and there’s was what appeared to be some kind of insulation surrounding the driver side motor. I pulled on a piece and a bit of animal fur was attached. So, off with the entire panel. There was a nest, not sure what type of critter made it. Included in the nest was a bird foot. Fearing catching some polymorphic infectious disease, I used my longest part retrieval tool to pluck out the nest, bit by bit. After getting it all cleaned up, I’ve got some more rust to take care of. At this rate I might have to pull the cab in order to use the sandblaster on the rust. I’ve also been breaking down assemblies in order to clean them up. My pile of primered parts is growing as is my pile of parts awaiting primer.
    I broke down the air valve that sits on the drivers side engine compartment. It was a mess (filthy) internally. When I went to put it back together, it seems there might be a spring missing. Does anyone have a valve they can take apart and see if there’s supposed to be a spring internally? 9DEF1C71-406B-4B68-8F7B-0808DD9ED7C6.jpgCB7D3A5C-FF61-4E29-8AC1-316BFCDEFAAB.jpgC5014C1E-6AF3-4132-8422-86656AAF790E.jpgPics:

    Been busy doing a long list of honey do’s. Not getting done what I want to accomplish but stuff’s getting done. I finally caved in and used some paint stripper. It would have taken an entire bag of sand blast media to clean just one fender. It’s not as bad as I feared as far as smell and residue. I’m using some spray paint stripper that I’ve had for years. Anyway, paint removal has sped up considerably. I got a case of color 319 spray cans. I figure I’ll need about that much to paint all the small stuff and inside the cab. One last thought for the day: as I was cleaning up the frame on the passenger side behind the cab. There was some numbers stamped into the frame. I cleaned them up and found that they are the serial number of the truck, same as the data plate ID. Only one pic for now: the frame section with the serial numbers stamped in.
