That same day..a very long one...
We took the seats over to F&H upholstery to have them put on the new seats I ordered from $OR.

The guy said "first week of october"

Mike said we could do it...

He was right but not a lot of we in that..
He did the majority of that by a lot....my neighbor Charlie helped and I did some. They turned out awesome thanks Mike! We used new foam bottoms and wrapped them in plastic and used spray adhesive to hold the plastic to the foam nice and tight..the originals had plasric over the foam makes sense to keep liquid off the foam.

Hoping to fire soon..got the original nippon denso starter and alternator out for rebuild..

Spitzer doesn't do it anymore but years ago we did a lot of business with A1 Auto Electric..they are now A1 Best..But its the same guy..they still do rebuilds so they got that work.

Rocky mountain drive shafts have the shafts..

Its getting close

One last cool picture that was fun.

I bought a jack a while ago off ebay...
Mine was an october 1971 jack..mike traded me for a sept 1976 jack...which is much closer to right.
So I had to install that and the oem tool bag that was in the truck when I bought it...
So cool

I wish I would have attempted my seats with the help of the collective wisdom of RS, vs my experience with a local upholstery shop...

Lots of progress friday saturday and sunday.
Big thanks to Mike for donating his time..
And neighbor Charlie.

Got the alternator and starter back from A1.
Got the drive shafts back from rocky mountain. Have new bolts coming..can put back with old ones if need be.
Got the son moved into dorms Friday

Found a mom and pop tire shop to mount the tiny tires on the tiny stock rims after discount nor big o would touch them.

That killed half of two days. That is a long ash story...

So work done:
Crank pulley nut re torqued.
Rear of truck done for now. Painted up the axle and surroundings.
Installed new shocks.
Tires mounted on rear.
Brakes inspected
Diff fluid changed 2.6 quarts
Steering gear filled .6 quarts
Interior put back together.
New boots.
Reattached tcase shifter bracket
Starter and alternator mounted
Clutch slave installed and adjusted.
Fuel lines installed and plumbed.
Most water plumbed..need to finish shroud we found at mikes..I never had one..test fits were successful.
Actually I do and did have one off the 75 but its beat and doesn't fit right.


Setbacks:
Attempts to bleed brakes and clutch found bad brake master and clutch master.
Couldn't find replacement distributor. Treeroot has several we may be able to use to make one. There is one at some goofball place in new jersey. Will call tomorrow. This is the limiter.

Need it to make further mechanical progress.
Will work on putting other things together in the meantime.

So waiting on:
Throttle linkage piece
Distributor
Master cylinder..brake and clutch
3rd try on egr hardware
Drive line bolts
Speedo cable

Words done. Pics.

Oh also decided since so much effort has gone into emissions a new air pump was a good idea since everything else is working and reconditioned.

Reman came in..will bolt it on when paint is dry..didnt like the blue on the other one and it was de-veined..pretty pumpedvto have a fully compliant emissions..
Even found the correct vsv on ebay with the right connectors
