killdozer!!! RAR!!

PostTue Apr 10, 2012 7:49 am

i figure killdozer should have a place here. since the add was posted here oh so long ago.

well i bought the ugly thing and have been slowly, slowly working on it. currently enveloped in project house hell and work but recently i have been finding time to investigate the condition of my craigslist 413
Image

first thing i did on the truck however was take out the moldy plywood camper stuff the previous owner added in
Image
Image

remove silly autobox from motor
Image

start tearing down front body to allow easy motor insertion. add babushka
Image

see REAL condition of motor...
Image
Image

clean off intake gasket crud.
Image
and find identifier plate
Image

then decided that all gaskets should be replaced after removing valve cover gasket. also gave me a chance to see how horrible the motor is
Image
Image

so yah... still a long long way to go...

That's my hoist in action!

That guy's slopey driveway plus like 800lbs of big block was terrifying.

Seriously though, a 413 is just such a perfect motor for this thing. Don't know why, just feels...right.
