Hopefully I'll be installing my new harmonic balancer today so I can set my timing correctly. Oh yea need to  pull my gas tank again. I think the sender is jammed on the baffle in the tank.

so today i did some little stuff. swapped the tstat today and filled her back up with coolant. then i checked out the a/c today. realized the clutch wasnt engaging so i checked all the wiring, looked good except the ground for the compressor cutoff switch wasnt hooked up well. rewired almost all of it hahaha then it still didnt work. so i finally forked out a few bucks for a new a/c clutch cycling switch and now my a/c blows colder than ever. gotta love r12

finally got a trans from dustin, brought it home and realized it didn't have the detent linkage inside the pan so i had to take that off in which i broke a bolt and then took the detent linkage off my old trans and put it on the new one.  took a while to get the broken bolt out but my neighbor was able to get it out.  i don't have the patience i just wanted to drill it out and tap out.  tj came over and kept me company also, he might be coming back tomorrow also when i finally get to install the trans.  i'm excited to just have it.  thanks for the good deal dustin

I groved my tires and rotated them. I took the steering shaft loose and straightend the steering wheel. I went through my ammo cans and organized the parts,bolts and stuff in one and tools in the other one.
