Jim, I don't think so going to stop at the intake. I'm out of money and time and motivation. Thanks for keeping me motivated to get this wrapped up.

Quadstar, I'm hoping this is part of the ticket to waking this thing up. It really sucked in the power Dept and the mileage Dept. Also what a crappy casting... I wish I had time to port and polish the whole thing. It's literally like popcorn ceiling inside of that thing.

Pics for tonight... The pile of parts I've taken off this truck so far... Tank, old brake lines, some wire (original LP ground I think) the old lines, sender, FFM, tank straps, the s manifold, the worlds worst PMD relocate kit...

Spent 4 hours prepping some more and laying 1 can of POR15. Should need two more to finish what will be covered by the tank, lines and pumps that I've sanded. I've lost track of the hours around 20. It will probably be all of 40 hours spent doing this frame part of the project. It would have been easier to replace an engine probably. Just 1 coat in the pics... Second coat and it covered good.

More painting last night. And the night before. I got POR15 in my hair which I'm still trying to get out. I look like I have shitty leopard tattoos all over my arms and hands that will probably be there for a couple weeks. I have gloves but they are semi porous. The POR soaks right though a T-shirt too.

Some notes... Painting the iron vagina of doom between the cab mount, bed mount, spring shackle and the ebrake cable was no fun with the bed on but it's doable. Lots of pushing the brush in and rattling it around and hoping for complete coverage. The dip between the mounts and the back of the cab has about 1/2" of clearance, enough to cram a sponge brush in between there.

The small POR15 cans are just about the right size for an evening of painting like I'm doing in 4 or 5 hours. You put a coat on then wait till it's tacky and hit it again. Usually takes about an hour to apply a half can, including the wipe down with mineral spirits, then wait two hours to tack then apply the other half of the can. Second coat applies easier but it's tough to tell if you hit everything especially laying on your back under the truck with never the right light. So it's more thorough.

I'm applying it right over the remaining rubberized undercoating but wire brushing it and wiping with mineral spirits. Hopefully it sticks OK. If it does peel, the undercoat is there and basically shiny frame to rust on for awhile.

Also, pics of the rusty vent tube. Patched it with JB weld and painted with POR15 too. Should work, patched a gas tank in my Subaru with this methid.

Today I'll apply the last of the paint and start installing the tank, lines pump and filter brackets. More pics to come!!!

Have you taken a bed off before? not too bad...8 bolts with the impact gun and you can flip it up on it's front after lifting off with a friend's help to coat the underside too.

The worst of mine couldn't even be seen until the bed was off the frame. The couple crossmembers on the frame hold moisture and rust from the top down.

Bed is coming off later for the leaf springs and cab mounts etc.
Painted parts, pile of new parts and painted frame... Moving on to the manifold and the IP fitting, hopefully by tomorrow I can just stuff the parts in there with hardware, run the hoses and rock and roll

Mosy on Leroy lol...

Looking good! Curious to see if you like the FASS as much as I do since you are using the stock FFM setup.

Careful, don't get Jim riled up! He did an FTB FFM for me that's going in. He also made the brackets and lent tools

. Got the gasket surfaces cleaned up but I noticed that the return crossover in front of the motor is pretty rusty and has small fuel lines, but I'm gonna leave it I guess......

I'd like to have put in a fancy pants filter setup like you but we will see how the FTB does. I didn't mind the stock filters too bad. I'm out of money too

If I haven't mentioned it before, if it weren't for Jim I would have slammed an FSU in it and probably sold it, this thing has introduced me to just a whole new breed of slow and stupid and unreliable that I didn't know existed.

I think I'm high on paint fumes.

I'm not saying she won't be fine with the stocker+FTB. Just curious how it goes since I skipped that step

The only time mine has let me down in the past 5+ years is once when I ran it out of fuel because the damn Spectra FSU doesn't read correctly. They are great once you fix all the shortcomings!

You can replace that hard line with a Tee or two and some small line. I have hard lines but they are from a 94 so they won't fit with your coolant crossover....dang

Ah. Well I will be here to complain for sure if it's still crappy. I'm just going to spray the crossover with some oil and hope for the best, I'm really getting fuggin tired of working on this thing every night and weekend.

Rerouted brake line. Was on the outside of the tank bracket and rubbed. That got POR15. Dad helped bleed. Much swear, very curse.

Look ma, POR15 peels off in sheets!


Assembly of tank

Waxing the FSU (Brazilian)

Ground lug for LP. SS dawg

Assembly of the brackets and putting them in ran one hose. The pump bracket bolts on top of the old LP bracket after hasty modification with the bench grinder.

My shrink tubing has eshinktile dysfunction. So I fuggin taped it too. Thank

Notes... Not impressed with the Leroy's fittngs, for the price they could give you a unit that isn't all burred up and won't hardly thread on

I cut the weathpack harness off of my old FSU to wire the FASS pump. The stock harness to the connector is like 20 awg wire... No sense in making it beefeh. Would have to do the whole circuit.

All I can handle this weekend
