Swapped out the Econoline's pigtail and the back circuit board for my instrument cluster, and we've got most of our gauges back. The new speedo/odo and speedo cable are working but the needle bounces and it's reading a lot higher than it should.....crap.

The last bit of wiring has hit a snail-like pace, only a few things are left, mostly the horn and fuel gauge. Got a relay on the way for the horn setup, hopefully the fuel gauge is only a bad wire and not a bad sending unit......that would mean dropping the tank to get to it, F that noise. We could always cut a hole in the floor to keep the meth-head spirit alive. hahahohohaha

I visited Leakbox on Sunday and his pics don't do his van justice. The man has skills. my van now has rear light trim bezels. The passenger side was an act of congress. In the 4 hours of my visit I came
away with an even greater appreciation of the experience that was shared with me and many good ideas and insights based on his on going build.

Thank you Leakbox

Pics or it didn't happen, Mickey.

Still not van related but I am getting the truck on Sunday. Gonna tow it out and get all the papers signed then off to meet the van. I have already ordered a fuel pump, plugs, wires, cap, rotor, and gonna get all new fluids. The idea will be to get her running from a gas can and fresh gas after doing an oil change, new coolant, and a full tune up. Then I can see what needs to be addressed before I try and smog.

I know it'll be a given I will need new tanks, vacuum hoses, fuel line, new selector valve, breather vents, and the gaskets. Hopefully after that, we'll see what happens.

You hear the thunder of stampeding rhinos, elephants and tacky tigers
This town ain't big enough for the both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave

Oooh man; that's Senior Citizen abuse. Can I send you a poloroid or a notarized statement from Leakbox ? Did they ask Leonidas for pics when he stood against Xerxes ?

That's amazing that Nappa had a 31 year old part for your van.

I put pine tongue and groove boards in the rear of my shorty, I have to get my mattress pulled out of my 73 and stuffed in it, should be entertaining cramming it in a 6" shorter space, wheelchair lift is almost touching the bed, will be very entertaining servicing it, I gotta get parts to fix it next, SOB is missing some important internals. Damn near killing myself, dehydrated, have an intestinal parasite keeping me from eating, but I got the bed ready, have had to fiberglass several holes in the floor, getting to be a pro at that crap, I can't wait to pull the front seats and see the floor there, not sure on what my power base will be bolted too if it is anything like I think, would love a big sheet of diamond plate aluminum, I want a flat floor to roll on, cover the ridges mid van.
