I've been taking apart some of the interior walls so I can access the screws for the bay windows. I'll be taking the windows out so that I can fix the rust under them.

Very cool Gladiator. Here's to nice days! Avoiding heatstroke! Cooler weather!

Dogvan was running rich, and annoyingly crappy er. So. !988 B250 EFI 5.2, 4 speed auto. 148K survivor conversion. Dodges little 318 workhorse engine. First year EFI in the V6, and 5.2 V8 B vans. The 5.9 was still a carb engine in 1988. This 318 has the A500 OD auto, my 94 MPFI 360 has an A518. These transmissions are geared slightly different, and are well mated to the output of each motor. Which by modern standards, is not much. rofl

R&R O2 sensor. Plus put in a new set of plugs, copper plus nothing fancy Autolite. Plugs came out very fouled, with black carbon buildup. The O2 sensor was suspect, as per the increasingly rich running condition. TBI isn't MPFI, or TPI, but you can troubleshoot it, it's not that complicated.

Had already done cap, rotor, wires, T-stat, coolant temp sensor. Timing was way out. did all this in 2015.

Glad to report, it runs good now! Go Dogvan!

The Stay Puft Marshmallow Van started smoking on cold starts, and while investigating, I found oil in the coolant.

She still runs and drives fine, but now she'll have to go under the knife to get that fixed.
Wasn't a good time for this to happen since all my workspace is taken up by non-runners right now, and I have tons of other stuff I've been busy with.
Oh well, it could always be worse.

Yeah, good point Wedgy.
I was safe at home, and it still moves under its own power, so there's that.
My little one was heartbroken when I told him our van was "broken".
He said, "Well, fix it then!" LOL

Besides working on our vans, we have been also working on my lady’s GMC 4x4. We’ve upgraded cooling, intake, carb, transmission lines and all new power steering system. Since we are all mostly gearheads here and I certainly appreciate when others post things they are working on, figured I would share today. It’s out at a glass shop today to get all the glass re sealed and vent windows put back in. This is her first project and has kicked butt getting the work done. Very proud.

Today Lil' Shitty got some Ground Force 2" lowering coils.

Pretty sure my van actually had longer springs than stock up front, because it was riding extra high and the new coils dropped the front significantly more than 2".

Much to my delight the van rides and handles BETTER than before, and the stance looks great.
