got what feels like quite a bit done today. found this little access door, there was one on each side. opened them up and cleaned out the dirt and stuff so they will drain water again. didnt see them till i was sitting eye level with it.



i got the new power steering pump pulley on, the new high pressure line, and the new pump on



it took a while to remember to how the pump mounted but i got it figured out. also had to modify the mounting brackets for the new alt. the 100 amp one is huge compared to stock.



clearance for new alt and new valve covers



had to bend the adjusting bracket



also had to bend the dipstick tube to clear the bottom of the new alt. used a brakeline tubing bender to bend the dipstick tube



also pulled the seat belts and the bench seat again so i can POR the floor boards and prep for the heater install

it kinda sucked being in the shop in 100+ degrees, dads truck said it was 110 sitting in the sun.

well i actually worked on my own rig today lol

cut cut here and cut cut there


i still need to clean it up a bit and i know i cut it up higher than the back of the bed floor but i will be tucking the bumper up nice and tight.

while cutting the bed side, the rear of the bed side seperated from the inside of the bed. bad pic



here you can see where the bed sides must have seperated before, there was some bad welds there. i will be cleaning the area up and re-welding it befpore im done.



and going back together

Funny you mentioned that, most of the stuff I bought was when I quit working for the government and spent half my 401k on bills and the other half on the truck and tools. Now I'm broke and just doing what I can on it. My biggest plan is to have it "done" before I go to college.
