    Nice score then. I wanted that truck soo bad but timing for me was bad as we were about to buy a house when I first started talking with him...and of course my wife didn't approve. Glad to hear you will be enjoying it!

    Awesome! Me too! Hopefully we can get together some day and unite some old trucks.

    Quick Update

    So I named her "Sally" the other week. Just seemed to fit. She is running pretty good, but certainly needs work. Driving her everyday down to the BART station (about 2 miles) I'm a little nervous as it's pretty shady spot, but so far she has been fine. The doors don't lock, so it's a grab and go situation, which sucks cause I need tools incase she breaks down. I've been reading a lot of books trying to learn more about engines and especially this one. As a rather newb mechanic, I'm going slow.

    I bought some spark plugs and wires to see if that helps her run a little better. I also mixed in some SeaFoam to see if that helps. (not sure yet) I'm also need to get a timing light. Still takes a squirt of starter spray to get her running in the morning. I hope I'm not screwing more shit up doing that. The carb is super janky. Half the shit isn't plugged in and a lot of it moves when I touch it and has a fucking clamp over the whole thing. Going to need a serious sit-down with that soon. I'll leave with a few pics of the engine as I haven't shown that before.

    I'm pretty sure this is a pretty bone stock setup.

    Last owner replaced the generator with an alternator as he said that thing was a POS. Been good so far.

    I'm sure most if not all your issues come from that carb.

    Finally got some free time yesterday. I ended up installing the wires and spark plugs after a few trips to amazon and auto zone.

    I also have a leaky breakline. I noticed the other day that the brake fluid reservoir was slowly getting lower and lower. I have been looking for leaks every time I move the truck but hadn't seen any. I noticed that this is probably due to how little it's leaking and most of it is captured by the rims. I'm keeping an eye on it, and will likely be the next thing I have to do. I can't quite tell where it's leaking from, so more investigation needed.

    With the new plugs things seem to be a bit better. Idle seems higher, little more performant, but may just be psychology. Here are the old plugs. Not sure how long they were in there, in picture from left to right (cyl4,3,2,1)
    4 seems to have visible oil on the threads and the others are pretty clean.

    Getting up the nerve to replace all the drum brakes. I think they are fucked. I don't have any tools, so that will be the first purchases. Been watching videos on replacing drum brakes. My e-brake doesn't work either, so that needs to get fixed...

    Good luck. What are you swapping them with? (assuming you're doing a disc swap, not just a R/R of drums)
