FLOOR MAT IS A POLYVINYL REPLACEMENT MAT, THAT DOES NOT FIT WELL, AND RECOMMEND REPLACING. AWAITING THE ORIGINAL FACTORY MATS TO BE REPRODUCED, AS THEY HAVE BEEN BACKORDERED FOR MONTHS...

MECHANICAL

ORIGINALLY INTENDED TO GET THIS TRUCK RUNNING, DRIVING AND STOPPING AS NEW. I REPLACED THE FUEL TANK, FUEL LINES AND REBUILT CARB. ADJUSTED VALVES, DID COMPLETE TUNE UP AND SET TIMING, DWELL AND IDLE. ONCE RUNNING I NOTICED CLUTCH SLIPPAGE SO I REPLACED CLUTCH, THROW OUT BEARING, AND RESURFACED FLYWHEEL.

SUMMARY

STARTS RIGHT UP! NICE RUNNING TRUCK! THE 292 6 CYLINDER RUNS GREAT. NO SMOKE, AND VERYMINOR LEAKS. TRANSMISSION, DRIVE LINES AND RUNNING GEAR IS SOLID. TRANSFER CASE WILL HOWL AT HIGHER SPEED, AND TOP SPEED FOR THIS TRUCK IS 55. I HAVE ADJUSTED STEERING BOX, BUT STEERING IS A BIT LOOSE. WOULD RECCOMEND STEERING BOX REPLACEMENT OR REBUILD. (LARES CORP. IN CAMBRIDGE MN WILL REBUILD THESE BOXES FOR 295.00). ALL LIGHTS AND SIGNALS WORK, HEATER WORKS FANTASTIC (180 THERMO) WOULD CHANGE TO 160 IF DRIVING IN WARM CLIMATE. RADIO WORKS, GAS GUAGE IS INTERMITTANT.BODY IS SOLID, BUT NOT WITHOUT FLAWS... AGAIN, IT IS PRESENTABLE AND USEABLE, BUT CERTAINLY NOT A SHOW PIECE, ALTHOUGH GET USED TO PEOPLE STOPPING, WAVING AND GIVING YOU THUMBS UP EVERY SINGLE TIME YOU DRIVE IT!
