We've had the truck running for a few weeks now. After replacing a faulty fuel pump and adding a modern inline fuel filter it runs quite well. The brakes are still in need of work, the master cylinder needs to be rebuilt in order for them to work properly. Regardless of this fact, I couldn't stop myself from driving the truck with all wheels now free!
I putted around the nearby soy bean field until the fuel filter clogged. With the local Napa store closed, we left the truck where it stopped. I'll swing out tomorrow morning and change the filter out to get it back where it belongs.
Next we'll tackle the brakes and it'll be safe to drive around town. That done and it'll be on to body work and things like belts, hoses, and engine work. I'm excited to get to work on these finer parts. With any luck I'll meet my goal of driving this to QBP's Frostbike show in late February!
