they had decent high temp engine paint that matched the powder coating at the auto zone so I bought it.

downsides of black I've read and agree with:
1. you can't see the oil leaks.

Upsides of black I've read and agree with:
1. you can't see the oil leaks.

did the same with the paint
3 coats
the directions said 10 minutes apart all within an hour inclduing primer
so I got that done.

by now my patience was wearing thin with lame picture taking
so I moved on to putting in lifters and push rods and then the studs for the valve lifters.

so that's where it stands now

I took apart one of the 3 sets of fans, then two sets of thermostat housings and put them in the dishwasher before the wife got home...shhh only dreams now.

so that's one of the questions I need to research now,

its a 78 block a 76 chassis.

the lower thermostat housing for instance I have one tapped for that sensor/sending unit deal and one without. need to figure out which one to use for that.

then the water pumps .. I must have 4 of them.

I was thinking about ordering a new one of those and fuel pump just cause ...

sor lists several different applications. I do have oil cooler and the truck was california emissions....

Water Pump -
Fits 1/75-8/76 FJ40 & FJ55 without oil cooler -

Water Pump -
Fits 1/76-8/76 FJ40 California model with oil cooler & without fan clutch -

Water Pump -
Fits 8/76-1/79 FJ40 with fan clutch & without oil cooler -.

Water Pump -
Fits 8/76-1/79 FJ40 California with oil cooler & fan clutch -

if I matched the 'truck' it would be the california model with oil cooler and no fan clutch.

The best fan I have is one that is for a clutch. I think I'd prefer to use that since its way nicer than the other fans I have...

so I think that menas I should order an 8/76-1/79 california with oil cooler and fan clutch....
??

any input on the t-stat housing with that sensor deal..whether or not that's improtant..
and then do you think i'm right on the water pump ?

The threaded hole on the t-stat housing is for the Bimetalic vacuum switching Valve (BVSV). 1978s had one of them IIRC, 1980-up have 2 of them, a red and a purple. They connect to the vacuum spaghetti to switch stuff at various temperatures, one is for below ambient cold cold and the other one is to tell when the coolant is starting to warm up. There will be nowhere to connect them on a 1976 application, so you can either plug the hole (they are 1/4 NPT IIRC) or put an aftermarket temperature sender there for an aftermarket temperature gauge, as the PO of my 60 did.

1976 CA spec is indeed oil cooler and solid (white plastic) fan standard. As you surmised, if you want a fan clutch fan you'll need a different pump (shorter nose IIRC).

You can put in a 1/8 FNPT T fitting on the oil pressure sender spot on the cooler and run both factory dash and aftermarket gauges if you choose. I have that setup on a couple of my Cruisers.

Oh and one other thing - I was able to buy a brand new OEM white plastic non-clutch fan for my 76 from Stevinson, they may still be available.
