Well it has been a week and the old girl is shifting great. I should be set for a few more miles. People think I am nuts for driving a 34 year old truck with almost 500,000 miles on it as a daily driver. The 80 miles a day just adds up even more. The old girl has never left me stranded. It is easy to fix or even rig something up to get it home. I am afraid to check the compression on the old 225ci (3.7l) inline six as has probably dropped off over the miles. The 1 barrel carburetor needs some new gaskets and there are a few other issues but she keeps chugging along. I have begun a search for a decent used engine that can be mildly worked up as the old one leaks and burns a bit of oil. But she just keep rolling.
