We already put slotted on his.
cool, l had a 1966 with the wide block 318, drove it all over, two quarts of oil a week, sloppy king-pins, had to put front tires on every 3 months. loved that old truck, man l miss it.


my slots l couldn't get the tires to seat and seal, maybe put the on when l can solve this problem. l had the 5-spokes for the plymouth, so for now they work to get the truck on the road.

Default Congrats.

Hey, you drove it, Man....YOU DROVE IT!!!! Now, there's a few adjustments to make. No big deal...right?

I don't remember what master cyl and booster you have but, if you do, check the small rod that is between your m/c and booster. Most are adjustable and it could be adjusted too long and keeping slight pressure on the m/c causing the brakes to lock up. It happened to me once.

Happy for you. Good luck.

Lynn

Smile driver side

the driver side caliper is froze up solid, can't even move the round part that pushs the pad back in the hole using a 4'' C-clamp. rotors are good, as is the pads.easy fix

N0W the freeze plug, well, that's right under the passenger side motor mount, between the cross ember and the engine. when we moved the engine back t put that freeeze plug dead center in the cross member. gonna have to lift the motor up to change it

Admit it, if it had gone smoothly there wouldn't have been near as much to talk about but this way you'll always remember the maiden voyage [ddev
So glad you got to drive it on Jimmy's birthday, I know it had to be an emotional evening. Thanks for sharing it with us and the pics were great!
I hope you get the brakes and freeze plug fixed in time for that show on the 30th.

Exclamation brakes

l got a caliper for the driver side, bled the brakes and were OK on that part of the fix.

l had a really bad miss, found my new spark plug wires were not put togother right so they were arcing on the headers. put a accel set l had laying around, miss fixed.

now the fun one, the freeze plug under the passenger side motor mount.

o yeah, looking forward to that

Smile leaks

l have a mass exhaust leak on the driver side and a small one on the passenger side. gonna do a bead around the inside of the flange that bolts to the block. then put a flat-edge on and gind flat to help the seal. l got a pair of the dead soft 3/8'' thick ''crush'' aluminum gaskets to fix the leak.

l figure since l gotta lift up the motor to get the freeze plug fixed, l may as well do it all at once.

.......no show again this week, but maybe next week

stiil, l got to drive it
