Well after months of work...the moment of truth. I don't know about other folks, but I get really anxious during that first attempt to fire her up after pulling things apart and putting it back together. Didn't do any major work, but I was still jacked when she fired right up.
Cleaned up some of the F'd up wiring
Replaced the steering gear box
Rebuilt the coupler
Pulled the Headers and hit w/POR-15.
Pulled & Cleaned up the starter and replace the toasted wiring with a new Mopar piece
Replaced the Oil pan and Pick-up tube
plus a bunch of misc stuff....
My daughters and I are happy to have a few big to-do's off our list.
