I was going to give you crap about how long it’s taking you but I remembered my LUV hasn’t moved in 9 months.

Started the tear down yesterday. Discovered that my alternator mount is a piece of workmanship. I always thought I had the exhaust manifold that takes the alternator mount. Instead I find a really long bolt with washers and even a lug nut stacked as spacers. Added a new set up to the shopping list. I am sure I will find more fun along the way as I pull apart this high school auto shop build.

A little update on the Luv. I finally took the leap and put in a new and larger radiator. The difference on cooling temps is amazing. I am down 15-20 degrees from the old set up. It was tough to cut more off of the core support but worth it now.

I finished the install with less than 24 hours before the annual car show but made it without any issues.

It was tough competition at this car show. There were 176 entries and some very nice cars and trucks. I had a great time but next year I'll just attend the show.

Yes, It was cancelled last year. Other than a few masks here and there it was just like the old days. 8)

Hell yeah, she is a beauty. I've been working on my girlfriends. Learning about all the quirks with the 72 lol. Has a 4.3vortec, s10 5speed, and a Toyota pickup rear in her. Learning the hard way about the master cylinder being impossible to find. Gonna have to go with a universal it seems.
