On topic, like the dealer, I too haven't been sleeping. I took a otc sleep aid so I could get up early and start the water pump and damnit if I haven't been knocked out until now. Anyway, gonna eat some lunch and swap a water pump.

Can you afford the car? Have I provided you all the information you need on the car? Do you like the car? Then buy the car.

You have no idea how jealous I am. I have a 1970 J 4000 thats currently in pieces. I have EVERY single part needed to rebuild it sitting in are barn (and field) except for one, the D60 rear end. I have a waggy 44 rear in the barn that I could use but I would much rather find a 60, which isn't easy. My plan is to start restoring it this winter.

OT: painted my mirror relocation brackets. Used Rust-oleum bedliner and threw some clear coat over it.

Installed a Rubi 44 front housing with Detroit TrueTrac, 4.88 gears, Currie ramped diff skid, and Ten Factory shafts. Also rebuilt the rear to match the front. Now I just need to shorten the front driveshaft and the project will be complete. It is nice to have power again.

Picked up some throttle body cleaner and a gasket. Cleaned the t-body, iac, and map. Sounded like I had a wild cam for a minute and thought maybe I screwed something up. Idles nice and smooth. Now I gotta ditch these Bosch +4 my guy put in when he installed the motor, for some ap985's

Put the whole top on to get it ready to sell, but in doing so, I broke the rear window. A sign of not to sell it?

Just wrapped up the new water pump and thermostat install. Fairly uneventful. Last thing I really NEED to do to get back to "right" is replace spider gears in D30.

Replaced the bad RC bushings with the Energy bushings that came in today and reinstalled control arms. Discovered a brake leak which means I still can't drive the POS. Limping to the service center next door and letting them fix it.

In other news, I ordered some nice Trico Conventional wipers from RockAuto for $11.34 shipped thanks to Trico's wholesale sale. They're going fast so jump on there if you need some new quality wipers.
