    ordered $400 worth of parts for my 81 and 93 from rock auto. will most likely be a bit broke for a month or 2 now.

    What all did you order?



    Did some sanding work on my 76 today. It's worse than I expected.

    Pictures in my build thread.

    pretty much everything i wanted/needed except for new spark plugs for the 93. didn't realize it till after i replaced the order. its not like the ones in the 93 are old. i just wanted to try some different plugs. if i can get the heat sheilds off the heads i might use the plugs that i ordered for the 81. i think they are pretty much the same except the older plugs use manly larger spark plugs.

    Goddamn. I see t-stats, fan controllers, lots of gaskets, belts.

    You got a big package from the brown santa showing up. :D

    ya. there was lot of stuff i wanted/needed. been getting a bit tired of manually switching my electric fans on when needed. also have to tackle the plenum gasket eventually. i don't know if i will keep the ramcharger but i will most likely keep the engine and transmission.

    i don't think it will be too big of a package since a lot of the stuff is pretty small.

    i forgot to mention it earlier. i test fitted the 100amp alternator so that i could figure out how big of a belt i needed for it. i would have ordered the parts i needed yesterday if i had know what size belt i needed.

    When you get that 100 amp one set up, I'd like to know how everything behaves. That's one of my wanted upgrades on the 76.

    it should behave just like any other alternator except now i should have enough power to power everything plus old alternator is kind of dying.

    since i ordered parts for the plenum gasket fix i figure i would start cleaning the spare intake a bit better than it was. took some oven cleaner to it and then hosed it off and it came out pretty good. got a bit more work to do to it before it goes on the truck.

    i am going to leave it. i am also going to leave the divider and possibly use it to hold my space wasters that i think i might make out of steel.
