My 84 pickup ground up

Well, I've been on here for a while and been looking and reading and even though I don't really have the time or patience to document my ground up build I thought I'd at least put some pics up I started in Feb this year here's some pics of where I am now


After powder coating and a few days later a rolling frame, completely rebuilt solid axle and rear end

Got to work on it today, added the brake lines and 1 gas line and the LSPV




Then I put on the tranny mount just to get it out of the way, and mounted the steering box


Skid plates back from powder coating




And the gas tank


And then i installed them




All in all a pretty good day
I have a new gas filter and new hose somewhere..................somewhere.............. .I'll find it when I'm not looking for it

The frame is so shiny and clean!

Is the fuel filler hose new?

No, I just "sandblasted it" Amazing how rubber comes out when you sandblast it. I did the rubber under front fender pieces and they look brand new. I'll take some pics tomorrow. There is also the same rubber skirting underneath the bed, I'll do those as well.
Today I cleaned up a bit and started the engine rebuild. I did the mains and the rods with plastigage and all were within .0015 and .002 clearance, so far so good.Waiting on a dial bore gage to "double check" my machine shop guy who I don't trust anymore.
It's all good, no rush, and I will take my time on the engine.

Ooooooooh!!!!!
Looking at those pics is almost as good as looking at centerfolds! - LOL!
Wanna see her in person.

Those bolt on the OME clips, Do they clear the fuel tank pinch-weld?

The clip that holds the leafs together. Bolt may hit pinch-weld when it flexes.

I know the frame shackle bolt came close but that's not a moving part.

Well, I checked it out today and it does clear, not by much but it is a good 6" from the gas tank. I will however turn the bolt around so the nut is on the outside.

After procrastinating for a few hours I finally put the engine together, oil pump. water pump, timing chain cover, timing chain and head.........sure hope I didn't forget anything............. Oh, and I set the intake and exhaust valves .008 and .012 Put the distributor in and the fuel pump while I was at it



I also put the oil sender(s) in and the coolant drain plug
Tomorrow the intake side.
