Weather was just wonderful today. Shorts and a t shirt. So that means lots of work got done. Started out working on SoccorJimmy's seat. It's just about finished. Then focus turned to my truck. Oil change, trans fluid change, blower resistor/wiring, rotors, repack bearings, change bleeder valve, change fuel filler neck, top rear end off, and put some interior back together was all on the list.
all the supplies laid out:
Oil is changed, trans is drained, waiting to be put back level to refill.
New rotors on, spacers painted: (sorry for the finger)
need to trim the studs down. My wheels do not have any other holes in them for clearance:
Trimmed and touched up: still need to do the other side.
went to change the bleeder valve on the driver's side (stripped last time i tried to bleed), and it just won't budge. so my wife stopped and got 2 reman calipers. will paint them in the morning and put them on. I need to sand black the brackets yet, but that will have to wait for another day.
Changed the blower resistor. by looking at the wiring, i thought i might have gotten lucky. i'm glad i bought the new pigtail. it was corroded together. changed out the resistor and wiring, now the fan speeds work like they are supposed to.
new soldered in:
all buttoned up:
also found a nice hole in my heater box. not sure when or how it happened. might have been a couple years back, had a right front blow out. that probably explains why i still get air blowing even with the hvac off.
and here she sits for tonight. hate seeing it up like that.
so tomorrow, i need to put the calipers on, bleed the brakes, trim the other set of wheel studs, torque all the lugs and fill the trans. have some new needles for the gauges, and a new emblem for the airbag. will probably get the dash back together as well.
