When people look at a thing

Some people just see the thing

Other people barely see the thing. They vividly visualize the potential of the thing instead.

You're definitely one of them other people.

What's the plan? AZ.bound?

Many Steeler fans drive to the game and watch  it on tv from the parking lot.  They think they get better reception

Rick, do yourself a favor and get all of that paint off of that thing. Then get someone who needs a bit of coin to burn up some polishing bonnets on it, until you have bright shiny maintenance free aluminum.

They all have their little issues and peccadilloes.  Mine has an early 6.5 GM diesel, from right after the switch over from the 6.2.  Lots of overheating issues back then (and cylinder heads with a propensity to crack), which GM addressed some time later with a higher volume pump and crossover pipe, and more aggressive fan and clutch.  I also confront the results of this thing being a maintenance truck for a school board, which sat around for an untold period of time before auction.  As a result, whenever I run the tank low, I clog the fuel filter with sludge.  So while I have the whole thing apart to address the heating issues, I am replacing the entire fuel system as well, including the tank, which is just over 100 bucks new, so no point in having the old one cleaned up.  

 

I talk about mine because if Rick's has been sitting, and if it has a 6.5 (I doubt that), he will want to look into similar issues before they happen instead of after.  

 

edit:  ah yes, the tag.  Now I see....

That's kinda what I was thinking, Sol, 'cuz a proper paint job on aluminum i$ a rather co$tly excerci$e. Just need to research whether a good clear coat or two sprayed on her would be doable---or if I should just plan on waxing the dog shit out of it three times a year. Hmmmm.

 

Anyways she's a '74 and is all International Harvester underneath-----345-E series V-8 (exactly like what is in the Traveler right now), a 4 speed manual tranny (BW T-19 or a N/P 435...not sure yet) and what seems to be an RA-15 rear axle. GVWR is 10,000 lbs. (oddly, the Nurse's '84 Tioga on the E350 chassis pictured above is rated at 11,000 lbs. Go figure). The best thing about her is that smaller IH V-8's are pretty much the same and parts interchange very readily------and I have a ton of spare parts right now that will work on both trucks. First purchase though (after going thru the brakes and clutch slave) is to shit-can the crappy Kalifornia'd smogged Holley 2210 and pop a 2300 on her. Did the same on the Traveler and the difference is like night and day. The other thing I gotta contend with is putting a heavy duty (Class 5?) tow hitch set-up on her. I don't know much about that kind of stuff, but a quick glance under the rear of the chassis tells me that there's lotsa meat at the frame rails to attach and weld to. I think.....

If those rear brakes are of the variety that requires removal of axles to access, brace yourself for a fun job.  Did one of those on a tow truck during my former career, and it was no fun.  New truck actually has disc brakes on the dually rear.  

 

For the hitch, I took a couple of pretty thick plates, 3/8" I think, and welded them to the frame rails, extending downward.  That gave plenty of places to weld the angle braces extending outward from the receiver.  I'll try to get some pics today if I can.  It wasn't hard; lotsa room to work under there.  

 

Those 345 are monsters.  BTW, I just saw one on ebay for 500 bucks if you want another spare.  

 

 

As to paint....  Don't clear coat.  Get a gallon of Tiger Cut compound and have someone polish it up with that, and forget about it.  No wax to wear off, no paint to dull.  Keep it very simple.

Finding a good forum is so important to keeping one of these things together.  Info from the right forum (including some folks around here), and parts from Rock Auto are what keep my truck going strong.

I hated the R/A site too, but once I got used to it, I could find stuff in the blink of an eye. (i looked up your brake shoes in about 30 seconds.)   Summit is cheaper every once in a while.  The great thing about R/A is that you can track down part numbers for various brands for any given item (with pictures).  If it is a big ticket item, I'll run the part number through a search on Amazon, and sometimes find a cheaper deal elsewhere, or just do a google search, which usually turns up an Amazon link.  

 

The other thing about R/A is that if you are using non-stock parts, it can help you identify what will fit and what won't.  For my 6.5 diesel, GM upgraded the cooling system a couple of years after my truck hit the road.  The big diesel shops make a tidy sum by packaging the various parts into a cooling system upgrade that tacks on a nice chunk for their knowledge of what parts work.  R/A helped me get that knowledge myself, by just a doing a bit of diligent work at looking at later model years and the parts for them.  The way the drop down menus work makes that easy.

I don't see much help online.  The shortcut site is stepvanparts.com, where you pay a good bit more for someone else to do all of the legwork on finding this stuff for you, but even they don't have front window glass.  I suspect that is going to be a local item.  You have to have a Safelite out there, probably several.

I'm sure I can find one----I've got at least three dozen junk yards within 10 miles of the house----and they're all inter-connected by radio. Pretty cool to walk into one place in say Wilmington, ask for a spindle, then if they don't have it they get on the radio and ask if anyone else in Los Angeles has one. And someone usually does. One of the better ideas of the past 20 years....

Good news there ... as charming as you are, I suspect the world has filled its necessary quota of Boothies.

 

 

btw ... as a tree-hugging, wingless-kitten protecting lefty, I have to say, those vehicles don't offend me in the slightest. You've recycled some old vehicles which more than makes up for the extra fuel you'll burn.

 

Apparently, you're a tree-hugging, wingless-kitten protecting lefty just like me. I still have your address, would you like me to send you a membership card along with a few Jello Biafra and Michael Parenti monologues?

Ricky, you bring the drums by the shop, I'll clean them up for you, maybe show some of the scrubs what brakes used to look like. Yeah, I need some wood butchery, my skilz in that dept pale in comparison to my mechanical godliness.  :P

 

 

The rubber isn't going to be reusable, you will want to strip and polish under the rubber while you have a chance, flat glass is fairly easy to replace, all you need is a piece of string to install it.

I think they are on a different machine than this one, but I'll look.  There are several online already, in one of the threads where Simple Jack's "truck" was being discussed.  I'll find them.

Having done highway miles with the truck empty. and with it loaded to the gills, I can say that it is a breeze to drive when  it is loaded.  The crosswinds are not nearly as problematic.  They are meant to do one thing really well: haul crap from A to B.  They will pull, but that isn't their primary purpose.  Steps must be taken to keep things cool.

Workhorse.  It was a maintenance truck for the school board.  Judging from the shelves inside, and a little bit of residual materials I found inside, I'd say it was a plumber's truck.  It already had shelving on either side, and a work bench in the back, along with auxiliary lighting in the back.  It has enough room for the sails and gear for two boats, plus all of my tools.  So it is a mobile storage locker, work shop, and tow vehicle.

Excellent Boothie, excellent, I can see this beast in an episode of C.S.I. no wait,, S.V.U., it has a small window in the side, and the wording "FREE CANDY FOR UNDER 16Y.O.s' written in red crayon under the window..

2 arms are waving out the window, 1 shaking a single thong, screaming and yelling, and trying to swat away a S.W.A.T. team...

A call comes over the radio, "the owner is a known gun lover, and may have a small arsenal aboard".

Discussions amongst the higher-ups, should they bring in the home-made town wrecking bulldozer, or maybe get the boat breaking grapnel from the RACOON  and "do a number" on the scoundrel within..??

Fuck, this just writes itself.

After you sell it to the production company, there should be enough cash left over to buy a Mazda Miata and you and the 'gator could start a car apprecation society.

A few casual observations and unsolicited comments (because that's pretty much what this whole forum is all about)

 

1.  Your driveway needs a lot of work, and can that other car even get out?

2. Your camping trip has the hood up on the International, hopefully not serious.

3. That van is hilarious, and I really wish you kept the apocalypse trailer, it would have made an awesome pairing.

4. If you were serious about lifting the van, wouldn't it tip over in the slightest breeze?

5  Did I miss what you wanted to use it for?

1.  Your driveway needs a lot of work, and can that other car even get out? Not my driveway.

 

2. Your camping trip has the hood up on the International, hopefully not serious. We were at 3900 feet, and I noticed my vacuum gauge was reading a bit low. Just checking for busted hoses.

 

3. That van is hilarious, and I really wish you kept the apocalypse trailer, it would have made an awesome pairing. Yeah, me too. But that trailer went to a good cause----now it's a portable solar panel/electric generating machine that gets rented out for big events somewhere in Central Cali.

 

4. If you were serious about lifting the van, wouldn't it tip over in the slightest breeze? Agreed. But now I'm thinking that just swapping in a wider Dana 60/70 in there with lock-out hubs would suffice.

 

5  Did I miss what you wanted to use it for? Hunting, fishing, working, camping, off road shows-----drinking.....

Many Steeler fans drive to the game and watch  it on tv from the parking lot.  They think they get better reception

The engine cover on the Nurse's Tioga is steel, with a bit of foil insulation inside of it. She can just hear herself belch when the engine's running. The engine cover on the step van however is less than an 1/8" thick shell of fiberglass. With no insulation. So on a good day, I just might be able to hear an RPG going off in the back.....

Take the cover off, and take a piece of engine room insulation.  Lay it in where it hooks on the bottom lip and curves around to where it hooks into the top lip, with just enough arch to make contact with the cover.  Pressing the cover on will tension it.  I did that almost on day one with mine, because of the heat, not the noise.  The sides still allow some noise and heat, but it is much improved.  The biggest noise is shit bouncing around in the stern.  Every little bump rattles stuff around, unless the truck is loaded down to the point that the suspension is actually doing something.

Dude, you're missing probably THE most important use of a van like that....... you could set up a portable reloading bench in the back and take that bad boy to the range.  Fire a few rounds, reload, fire a few rounds, etc.  That would be a bench shooters wet dream.

 

You could also turn it into a mobile gun shop/gunsmith business and take it on the road.  Think of it as a 2nd Amendment roadshow in all 50 states.  Take the message to the people promoting gun safety, responsibility, etc.

THE most important use for a step van isn't smithing guns Jeff.

Ask Sol or Owen ... THE most important use for a step van is what happens when a jar of mayonnaise, two rubber chickens, a roll of black plastic and your very special lady come together in the back of that step van, to make sweet, sweet love, 200%, full strength drip, le créme de passion, baby, a little Barry White on the 8-track, and an electric degausser for that special lady.

Oh la la.

THAT's the most important use. Smithing guns currently ranks at 48th most-important things to do in a step van, between Ben Wa balls and judicious application of volatile organic compounds.

The step van love sandwich baby, Sol knows all about that ... there's a reason why his sails smell faintly of Channel No. 5, chicken fat and axle grease y'know.

When Sol serves a lobster to that special lady, she knows that lobster is going to be buttered in the shell.

I want a step van but realistically, my sporting goods department isn't inflated enough to make proper use of it.

So here's the thing Jeff ... a panel van is a place for that very special lady and an old Windex bottle filled with Grand Marnier. But a step van is a place for that very special lady, two jars of extra chunky peanut butter, a modified enigma rotator and 3 square feet of string reinforced polyethylene. L'amour! Shag carpeting is groovy, shag carpeting with a layer a Cap'n Crunch is kinky. Panel van is here, step van is there. Sorta like the blue stuff that the barber used to dip the combs ... none of us knew what that stuff was, we only knew that things got interesting when it occupied the same space as women, a feather duster and the broken yoke of a Cessna 172.

I think Mikey is thinking of a step van interior along the lines of this, but with a more cheesy decor:

Rick you may appreciate this,

 

I've driven by this place several hundred times and never stopped in.

Today he had an old right hand drive 800 sitting out front that got my attention.

So I stopped to look, after a few minutes an old guy came to talk to me about the Scout. He began telling me about his part supply and invited me in to check out his stash of old Scout stuff.

Turns out he used to make them in Fort Wayne IN and has been a collector ever since.

I barely scratched the surface of his inventory, he said he has much, much more on his 90 acres up the hill.

 

Kind of an eccentric old guy, probably need to be to collect old Scouts and live in Grant CO.

 

Unbelievable amount of Scout stuff tucked in everywhere. I can just imagine what his acreage looks like. Barely scratched the surface.

Excerpt from this guy's will:   Dear Heirs, here's a million dollars worth of scout parts.  Sorry I can't leave you the two million you'll need in order to liquidate this inventory in less than ten years.

5  Did I miss what you wanted to use it for? Hunting, fishing, working, camping, off road shows-----drinking.....

 

Dude, you're missing probably THE most important use of a van like that....... you could set up a portable reloading bench in the back and take that bad boy to the range.  Fire a few rounds, reload, fire a few rounds, etc.  That would be a bench shooters wet dream.

 

You could also turn it into a mobile gun shop/gunsmith business and take it on the road.  Think of it as a 2nd Amendment roadshow in all 50 states.  Take the message to the people promoting gun safety, responsibility, etc. 

 

A boy can dream......

Tell us about the drive to Hawa'ii, I would imagine taking the "2nd Amendment roadshow" to Alaska might be interesting too.
