Nice!

Any non standard work to the engine, ie. balancing, gasflowing, oversize pistons or cams?

Thanks Thabo. No I have not done any mods to the motor yet, I just want to get it finished and running at the moment. Will be looking at getting a spare set of heads that I can fit inserts for the valves so that it can run on unleaded fuel. Will maybe do other mods later. The crank I had machined to 10 thou. The cylinders are already on 40 thou, but honed out very nice and within spec. So I only replaced the rings. New water and oil pumps. Will see when it is running if it needs any other work on it. :thumbup: :thumbup:
May have a problem work wise, so I need to get the truck going. :thumbdown:

Made a few heat shields today and fitted. For the starter, clutch pipes and brake pipes. Fitted exhaust. Also got the cab back on the chassis. :thumbup:

Please, pretty please, while all the wiring is exposed won't you check and see where the intermittent unit is for the wipers. I can't trace the wire without pulling an unwrapping the entire wiring harness?
Happy trails

Nic I will have a look over the weekend. I have tried to look but am not sure where it is. I will maybe be putting a battery in the weekend to do some wiring, if I get that far or else it will be the weekend after. Will let you know when I find it. :thumbup:

Thanks so much!

Mine's died and I can't find it by following the noise... (Not that it really matters at the moment in the Cape since rain is a thing that happens to the rest of SA)

Hi Nic, have been looking and asking. It seems to me that the relay and timer is all inside the switch itself. When I look at the wiring I will see what I can find.

Looks like that to me as well. The "Solid State" box on the schematic is probably some kind of intermittent relay. Once the circuit has been triggered, the motor keeps the circuit closed until the cycle is complete (gear wheel has copper rings and brushes).

Did some work on the load bin this weekend. I also did some wiring. The relay and timer for the wipers is in the switch on the steering shaft. I also managed to short my circuit sheet that fits behind the dash cluster. Does anyone maybe have one lying around that they dont need? :beg:

If you don't find one, you should be able to bridge any burnt sections by soldering in some bridges of thin wire like you would find in telephone and alarm cables.

Over the last 2 weekends I have repaired, undercoated and sprayed the load bin. Fitted plastic parts. Having long weekend this coming weekend and getting visitors from overseas the weekend after so I wont be doing anything for 2 weekends. :shock2:
Getting there slowly. :thumbup:
