Brakes bled! I finished that project this morning. Need to adjust the star wheels but I ordered the self adjuster style that Tom recommended I look into.

I removed the 70’s style brakelight brackets and installed the earlier version brake lights.

Image
Finished driver hinge bolt adjustment, but need help to change out the passenger side.

I actually put my tools away. Because this mess was out of control.
Image

My Holley is sitting in a can of dip right now too.

IIRC, the fuel line on my '64 with 223 is 5/16"

April,

I'm pretty sure 5/16 was the standard size hard line for both 6 cyl and V8 engines, you can always go bigger but wouldn't want to go smaller.

Been buying on amazon and eBay in prep for my electrical work. Got a pleasant surprise from the USPS today.

I purchased a 22pin weatherpak plugkit, multiple plug variety packs and of course a 220 piece “kit” that included the crimping pliers needed to set the pins. I think they were reasonable priced.

Image

Image

The plug is just slightly bigger than the stock hole. The parking brake is right below so maybe not much to do about making the hole bigger.

Image

There is another punch out nearby, but I need to check for clearance on the other side.

Image

Image

I dipped the Holley 1940 carb yesterday... May assemble that bad boy later today.

Image

This is how cruddy it was.

Spent more time out in my freezing garage.

Then side tracked with that carb. Finished cleaning and it’s resting on my kitchen counter. Lord knows why I’m still single.

Image

CHecked the inside of the cab for obstructions if I used that 22 pin plug.
Image
The other punchout is for a hydraulic clutch which I don’t have.

I had a female coupling pvc piece that happened to be the right size for measuring the plug diameter.
Image.
I’d have to trim a little here or put a spacer in for the inside of the cab where the 3” of female plug would sit..

Image

Run to Home Depot for a few supplies... yes I know Sundae is spelled wrong. Spell check autocorrected it without me noticing,

Image

Decided to fiddle with the passenger hinge.

Image

Image

No room to see, no room for my arm, not comfortable at all
Image

Image

Mocked up a place to put a bracket for the fuse block,
Image

Fuse panel in a general location allowing me access to fuses, the clutch pedal has clearance, the 22pin plug would have room to be used as well.

Image

Did you know these wrenches are hard to find!
Your kits go to 19 and skip 18. A large kit starts at 21...

I really had no ambition to go in my freezing garage today, not even for laundry! I did put a heater on in there but it just didn’t feel good out there.

Watched a lot of YouTube, caught up with the pup cuddle puddle and reading forums.
After dinner I got the wire harness out and started mapping the wires how they are placed in there. The drawing it provided isn’t that great.

Image

Not so good at following directions! Lol. I clipped all the zip ties and put a tiny bit of electric tape on each wire to help map where it goes. Red, green, yellow or black.

Image

Started with the fuse panel.
One part of this drawing is as you look at the fuses and the other is flipped 180* to the rear.

Image

Traced the wires from the fuse panel out to their location, labeled and color coded.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Went thru the harness as it is and regrouped the wire rounds a bit, and it just feels like the wire harness grew!

Image

I have found a few wires I don’t need... electric fan (that’s why I was asking about it in other post- it got me thinking and researching)

I don’t need the radio wire but will keep it in there since I may put one in eventually.
There are a few wires for this and that’s may be removed.

I need to sit here with the factory wire diagram And and pen/paper and make notes how I need to route the wires.

Your hard work will pay off. You can rest in the assurance that your wiring is in great shape and if you happen to have any electrical problems in the future, you will have an excellent wiring diagram for your truck. Any problems would be easy to rectify.

Also, If I may pass on some 'wisdom' that I learned the hard way...make sure that your grounds are all good. A large percentage, if not all, electrical problems are usually because of a bad ground. Don't ask me how I know that....lol.
