My problem wasn't on the water sensor, it was the one that connects to the fuel pump from the fuel filter housing. That one is a little smaller than the ones on the fuel filter housing. They only provide a straight version of this connector.
My plan is get as much as possible done (probably not the hardtop since I have to stretch it) heating, ac, power steering wiring, fuel, bumpers.
Then I know MOST of the cutting and changing will have to be behind me.
Yeah deleting the cowl vent is an all around good idea. I did that before I connected my cowl to the new tub.
That cowl vent on mine was sealed by the factory so all it did was create a nice place for moss and algae to encourage rust!!.
I cut a plate, welded it in there, metal finished and...
I see you snaked the cummins wiring around the brake booster.
I shortened it and come up just between the engine and brake booster. It was a real pain to do!!!
But I come through the firewall in about the same spot.
Did you delete the cowl vent? The cab side of the connector is kind of bendy...
Advice from @Mud_Guppie was get it running and drive it around the block before taking apart for paint. I am constantly going back and cutting, making holes, changing plans, which would mean ruined paint or at least much serious touch up.
I did some more stuff on the basket too.
It has a custom made cable to lock them down and a bar to attach a ratchet strap for tightening them down.
Tigged the bars on, this one with the cable inside.
I put the lock ring on the underside so it wouldn't be banging and clanging into anything...
I had photographic evidence of work this day!
PS fluid going in. I went with non-ATF. couldn't find good answers on which to use. Seems liek the engine is new enough to want the new stuff.
I tried to start it that night at around 10pm, we were both tired and couldn't get it to work...
Thanks to @amico I discovered that Chad from Quick Draw discovered a clearance problem with the inside of the bellhousing and the clutch. I hadn't rotated my engine since I fried the battery with the starter so I had no idea about the problem. Unfortunately I had just that day installed my...
Crossmember 2.0, this one allows for a front driveshaft!
Wiring from Aussie Tail lights, Why they gotta do everything diffren??? @BenjaminCA
Discovered that with aforementioned front driveshaft the oilpan and the driveshaft were likely to become better friends than I would prefer.
Homemade/Modified throttle pedal bracket. Just hugs around steering column flange but wide enough to give some side to side support.
Chose position for rear roll bar.
I made the passenger side longer so that I can tie into the frame underneath and not interfere with my fuel filler neck...
I was having trouble getting the clips from the Vintage Air kit to hold the emblem on the grille so talked to them and got these from the parts store, MUCH better.
They need to be a 3/8" hole btw.
More Bumper stuff:
OK, time for an update. Certainly not having a job has made a big improvement on the amount of time I can spend on the truck.
I had a big problem with the front brakes. I put the calipers on and then the brakes were seized.
A lot of people had ideas and I tried different new parts etc...
