Oh man, this beast keeps running better and better. Such a cool truck! Ride is really good too considering its a cabover, im impressed. Could be sofened a bit but really, its pretty nice. Has not skipped a beat, driven it all weekend. Almost 200 miles so far. Also got the wiper linkage removed cleaned and lubrcated. Wipers are actually pretty fast for just the one speed.

Got it cleaned up too, can ya tell? Heh, the clenser I used was starting to take off some rust, couldnt have that now. But I got all the dirt off, windows still have some kinda film on em, cant get it off. Totally digging this beast. I love bringing stuff back from the dead, ive got no complaints here. But it will be parked for a week or so while I wait for a new shifter seal and the roll pin for the shifter.

Also what do you do for the floor plug over the master cylinder? This is the larger plug that wekk, no one seems to have.

So maybe someone should read it ... Not too slippery at all.
"In normal operation, the sulfur/phosphorous additive forms a black sacrificial coating on the gears and anything it touches with a little pressure and temperature. As the gears turn, instead of wearing, the sacrificial coating of additives is peeled off or worn off. This is normal and acceptable in all steel gears. But when one or more of the surfaces is brass or another soft metal, the sacrificial coating is stronger than the base metal, and instead of just peeling off, it takes with it a few microns of brass that it is bound to."

Well it's been fun, it's been real...she's done and gone. Moved onto the new owner. I got my corvair fix and I'm happy I did it. Such a cool truck, if I had the space and $ I'd have kept it. And the more I drove it the better it ran.

Thanks to everyone here for the help and info. Good forums are sometime share to find and I wasn't disappointed. Now onto the next project, an MGB GT that's gonna get a Buick 3800 V6 and a 5 speed. Only question is supercharged or NA. This one is gonna be just as fun.

Can’t believe you sold her after all that!

Those wheels look good. Do you happen to know what you had on there?

The wheels were rally knockoffs, 15x6 made by vision wheel. It was under 350 for a set with the center caps from summit racing. There are a few different cap choices. Price point was great, and can't beat that classic look.
