Well, I wanted to post some before and after pictures of the rebuild, so here's the before:
I bought a ram air intake off ebay for like $29 shipped... This was about a month ago... It's the only before pic I could find.
Here's a during:
On the left there is a sweet yard sale special I found for just $24! Here it is:
It's an old '74 Montgomery Sears 'high performance' compressor. It's just a 12 gal, but pumps 5.4 cfm@ 90 psi
...so I'm happy with it. The regulator is broken so I had to get rid of it:
That's a 'little' 30lb propane tank I found at a yard sale... I think I talked them down to $5 or something.. Here's a better shot of the connections:
It was fun getting the original valve off... not..
So anyway, back to my pickup... finally got the engine out.. decided to drop the tranny too:
Well, here's a look at the cab.. still trying to decide where I want to mount the CB... I was thinking behind the shifters...
The guy at D&R Communications told me that under the radio was no good because of the bottom speaker, and the connections in the rear...
Anyway, I'll be working with my machinist throughout the build (just taking pictures over his shoulder) but he says it'll be done in a week or two, and I'll throw more pix up when everything gets out of the hot tanks.
ExCabSwap: The wind there looks horrible... Still worth it haha

Wyldman: The Cowbell... If you are a club member and you're on one of our wheelin' trips. If you get stuck on an obstacle and have to be pulled out by your winch or someone elses winch/strap. You earn the Cowbell.

poorboy: Wyldman, I got to see the passing of the bell at the meeting and learned quite a bit about the tradition.
