Well it starts right up and runs great now! I wired it up with a deadman switch like some of the old semis used to have. The pup even approves of the flatbed.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

Smoked my first brisket today and decided it was a good time to wash everything in between that. I've decided I'm better at building things in the shop than cooking

Brought home the next project today. Turbo sixty niner, supposedly has a bad transmission. I'm planning on getting it rolling and putting my snow plow on it

Noooo no problem here I just like simple old things that I can still work on and I've got a boatload of parts sitting around now for this era so it makes sense to just keep driving these lol

Checked the fluids qnd threw a set of batteries in the clementine colored turd and after atleast a year of sitting it lit up instantly, like I've never ever seen an idi start so quick ever. And the best part it drives perfectly even! On my little 5 mile jog anyway I would say this thing is gonna be the best 300 bucks I've spent in awhile. Once I get it cleaned up a bit and get the rear end welded up and some decent tires on it I will get some more pics of this beauty!

Rebuilt the rear drums and did new seals and fluids on the rear axle on the flatbed truck. Basically all that's left with this one is to someday figure out the cruise and the washer fluid which are both minor

I've got diagrams for both an 89 and the 95. I just havent looked into it yet. It could be something as simple as I spliced a wrong wire from the powerstroke harnesses to the 89 column

Everyone meet Koe. He is a big fan of the old 6.9. Turned the pump up in that 2 allen flats today and should have went 2 more. And it started leaking from the return lines, which I'm going to attribute to sitting for who knows how long. Otherwise this thing has been great, I've been driving it as my work truck. It is dang near running before you even turn the key!

Picked up some alcoas. I'm thinking these will go to the crew and the 10 wides will go to the flatbed, which will push the bias plys to the 6.9!

I also rebuilt the return lines on the idi and picked up a white Rodgers glow plug relay for the flatbed
