    The pump was a freebie from @emorth.
    I had spare alligator clips from an old inverter, some spare wires, a 12v relay, and a momentary switch, and just had to source some hose and some brass fittings.
    I ran a switch along the fill hose to control the pump.
    Total investment is less than $20.
    It's dead simple.

    Did some work with the metal brake, re-welded the v groove since it wasnt quite right. Threw it on the press and bent my 1st peice of plate, 1/4"x2", not bad!

    Drove to OTRAMM, picked up a lower tail gate (Thanks Gary and Ryan), changed the PCV, installed the tail gate, failed at fixing our microwave =/, installed a new charcol canister. Beers and movie night next... my kind of day

    Refreshed rear brakes on the 450. Both calipers, no more dragging/noisey brakes!

    The a/c compressor locked up on the way down to Florida. We're fortunate that it is not humid and relatively mild and I'm going to wait until I get home. They are cheaper than I thought they were going to be--$180 for a Denso from RockAuto.

    That makes it nice to have a serpentine belt!

    This on the 80? The AC shuts down at 217F coolant temps (which don't register high on the dash water temp gauge) but I assume you confirmed it's the compressor.

    Yes, It's not a lot of fun. Manual says to pull the oil filter housing and cooler off. You can avoid that if you take the drivers motor mount loose and lift the engine up. Rack goes all the way to the passenger side then pulls out the front on the driver side.

    I have a compressor for a '94 1FZ as well, though, probably better to buy once and cry once.

    Thanks, but I think I'm just going to cry.

    This truck needs a lot of TLC and I think its time to start getting on it. Oil leaks, paint maintenance, minor rust repair, upholstery repair, etc. Should keep me busy.

    Other than belts, I can't think of anything else to replace when putting on a new A/C compressor for an 80. Any other suggestions?

    Yup, what Patrick said. How old is the H20 pump? Ever done the oil pump cover or crank pulley seal?
