Torchie's getting it again!!!
Hard to keep an old cuss down when he's got things to do.

Glad you're doing better Brother.

That's looking good and solid Torchie, no rush though! I'm glad you are back at it.

The worst part of taking these little trips to wound care land is the fact that the follow up DRs appts. seem to go on forever.
Had another one today. All is going well.
I did start to mess with the grill area.
The grill opening on the 50 Coronet must be different then the 49.
These parking light housings should line up directly under the head lights.
And the lower grill bar is past center by maybe 2-1/2 inches.
Just more work for Torchie.
The rumor is my one friend is coming over in the morning and we are seriously going after the S-10.
We will see who's definition of serious wins out.
Torchie.

Thanks kenny.
Move a bunch of #@%& around today as well as started to strip the S-10 in earnest.
Box off. Doors off. Bumpers off.
Frame is in really good shape despite it's appearance.
Pulled the Dodge frame that came with the body over to the scrap pile as well. Bumpers and wheels will come off of it before being scraped.
And also moved the boat. Remember that one.
And a bonus...
The S-10 engine does roll over.
The current reasoning is that the OG distributor took a dump and they didn't know how to replace it as well as resetting all the computer stuff?????
Any thoughts on that from you S-10 people as I hear its a somewhat common issue.
That's it for today.
The weather is turning colder as we speak so the finish bottom coating my have to wait for a few days.
Keep on keeping on.

I donít know much about these Crank.
The guy that helps me has had a few as well as being a first rate parts guy.
He says that the factory distributors on these arenít that good and has seen more then one of them crap out.
We will be doing more in-depth engine stuff at a later date. Pulling plugs. Bore camera and such .
Everything is so stuffed in this engine compartment itís a real PITA.
Plus this thing had been worked on before. Only one bolt holding the bed on( which of course just spun) as well as some sketchy work on the fuel pump. Wire nuts on the electrical going to the pump. So who knows the real story.
