steering and brake controls in today 100%

kept the adjustable height Denali petal setup after some wire diagram and some google foo- should be tits on a toggle switch. 

also took some time with 0000 steel wool on the front driver quarter, and there is actually some shiny paint on this thing left in some places!  looking good!

motor fired.

a ground got lost on the TAC module- was same symptom of have active VATS, but PCM tested good on the other 6.0 truck i have here. 

ground must have come from the body control module / cruise package connector where i cut it.  ill have to remember that one.

Coolant bled. 

boo for a bad voltage gage in the 3 pack cluster  (bought 4 of them last summit order and last one left)

checking off wiring items and finishing up under hood, then moving to cab/glass/seat.

pretty much done.  rips down the road hard.



might need a water pump, something leaking a bit. 
a front bumper and some rear glass gaskets would finish this truck 100%

need to insure and plate next week.  should be a fun one. 


already have a buyer that viewed and begged to put a deposit down ( i held off till its 100% on road and transferable papers in hand)

first good drive.  no complaints.  noticed the water pump weeping last week so that will need to be addressed.


6.0 awd rips and exhuast is not bad.  no rattles tight cab. 


need to track down a front bumper, rear glass seals, and some wipers. 

gas filler neck or tank venting is screwed up- can only be filled SUPER slow

ripped this guy to buffalo and back today.  water pump leaky leaky so picked up one on the way back to change out tomorrow when it cools off. 


otherwise, thing is sweet on the thruway.  no issues with motor or trans hot.  slams gears and rips. 

lots of smiles and waves.

last 10 feet of universal glass seal on the internet close to what i need i could find was brittle junk from Thialand that probably had sat on a shelf for 16 years.  tore like Kleenex even with lube when tried to install. 


bah, amazon can eat that back.  i guess ill just order and wait till its back manufactured bah!
