I miss that old beat up truck. The guy that bought it couldn't hand me the cash and get it on his trailer fast enough. I was sick..
This one has been in a field in western Washington based on the berry vines and serious mouse house in the bench seat.

Back to the build.



I got the tank installed and plumbed today. I'll fire it up tomorrow and attach the fuel sending unit.











I have a good leak from of the transfer tail shaft mating gasket. Is it a big deal to just unbolt it and slide it back so I can hit it with some permatex, Or should I remove the rear output shaft to install a new paper gasket?

Little more progress. I went back over all of the bolts on my suspension since installing the 4" lift. Drove it to the gas station to fuel up the new rear tank. My gas gauge is working now! I was working on my other project and kept smelling gas coming from the jeep. I looked under and found this!








It is leaking from the factory hard line. It was behind the factory tank until I deleted it. Good thing I did.



Question? Would you replace it with a new hard line or rubber reinforced fuel line?

I'd probably replace the entire hard line. Then it'll last another 40 years

That's what I get for letting it sit so long. The hard brake lines on the GMC motorhome are about to start that. New complete kit is over $700. Going to be next owner's problem. Since my lady passed away in July, have no need or desire for it. She bought it cause she hated tents, and now my camping days are over.
It's hell losing two life partners in less than seven years. This one was actually my first wife, and we reconnected four years ago
