It's coming along. i can see a bit of light as I got the new fuel line bent and installed and the cage nuts put on the tub for the seats. it's tough to not be able to do much but work on it, wait for parts, etc. I am trying to push through and get it wrapped up soon for some enjoyment.

time for some more progress updates.
the constant tub removal was a pain so I got some dollies to move the chassis about and it has helped a bunch.


my weld/cage nuts came in from restoration specialties so I was able to get them all welded to the tub.









the new bent fuel line


with those installed it was really nice to get the driver's seat back in for a test fit and a bit of motivation




after that it was on to sanding the tub to get some primer and paint started. it's been a bit tedious but is coming out nicely.













more to come.

Lots more happening and I am pretty excited about where it's at.

started with measuring, marking and drilling all the locations for the footman loops. I used a string and weight to get them symetrical.


Then taped measured and taped all the bow brackets/pockets on.






I ran into an issue with the storage pocket measurements/placement on the repro tub and wanted to make sure they would work before welding them on. I was going to order a set of top bows but couldn't get them so after chatting with one of the guys at the 2a page I used the engineering drawing at actual size and printed them on foamcore and cut them out to adjust placement which was 1/4" adjustment. Now down the line when I get the bows I know they'll fit.




after much procrastination on my end I finally rebuilt the rear seat clips and made paper templates so that I could drill the mounting holes.




YAY! the back seat is complete and the clips work fantastic.

I got a trailer socket cover and although I am not drilling the socket hole I measured, made a paper template and drilled the holes for it.


Also I wanted bumperettes so I got those, stripped them and repainted them.

with my bumperettes I also ordered leather shifter boots to replace the rubber one I originally bought some years ago. I couldn't be more pleased with them. they fit great and look even better. I couldn't wait to see them on so i had to stop and do a test fit.


YAY Again! the ups driver came with parts from walcks 4wd. this time a complete exhaust, spare tire carrier with lugnuts, the correct dimmer switch a new dash data plate and new rear bow
pockets

I had originally got some original rear pockets for cheap but to be honest they were pretty rough and even after a bunch of work I still wasn't happy with them. they would have required some sort of filler to look even a little better and I just couldn't weld them onto the new tub in good conscious. The new walcks u.s. made repro's are super nice.
here is one next to one of my originals.



then I marked and drilled the holes in the tub for the spare tire carrier.

I finished the sand/paint/sand/paint and let it sit for a few weeks. Then started to bolt things back on.























I installed the new exhaust but need to run the pipe cutter around it as I think it is a bit too long.






The bumperette choice took away my license plate location so I made a bracket to hold the plate.


Then I made some paper templates so that I can get some rubber and make a rear bed mat an front floor mats.







When I receive the new serial, frame and body tags I will take those to get engraved. I need to raise the body a smidge to drill the firewall for those and then I can mount the body back on with bolts. Then I need to get the spare rim stripped so i can refinish it as I will get my spare around thanksgiving.

I have been putting some time in getting yancy back together. Lots of progress this week and today I had a day off so I put it to use getting some more done.

earlier in the week I ran the wiring into the tub and with the exception of me misconnecting a couple of wires that I had to backtrack and fix the electrical is all back to working order.




the plastic float that came with the replacement sending unit had a hole and swallowed gas so I ditched it in favor of some cork.

Put a new beefier D-ring on the tool box lid


Then started putting the access covers back on.



bolting on the other misc parts





This morning I went to plymouth rubber & transmission to get the sheet rubber for the bed and floor mats so they cut me a 3'x6' piece of 1/16. Great price too at $2 a sq/ft. and I have leftover for other uses as well. so I placed my templates on the rubber and cut them out.













Then I reinstalled the fuel tank and seats and rolled it out of the garage for some pics.








next I have to get the spare rim from the stripper and repair one lug hole on it and refinish it.

well I put fluids back in, hooked up the fuel line and fired yancy up.

the good:
runs good, no smoke, not overheating.
steers, brakes and shifts great.
my refurb job on the fuel gauge worked great and it works nicely.

the bad:
carb needs a rebuild

there was an undiagnosed leak on the rear of the transfer case that enjoyed being sprayed everywhere from the shaft rotation. I got that mess cleaned up and am going to have put a new seal and felt on it.
rear pinion seal is leaking now.

the horn spring is too weak and when you hit a bump it makes contacts connect and sounds the horn making you look like an idiot.

I have some freaky issue with the high beam switch. i did the wiring and tested to make sure the telltale light was working. on my test drive the high beam light came on dimly when the lights were on regular and got brighter when you hit the foot switch. then the switch stopped working all together, but then started working fine.

Kick ass progress and fantastic write ups as always. How did your kid enjoy the ride? How did you secure that felt to the tank strap? I got a new strap and never knew there was supposed to be anything under it :)

thanks.
she has been waiting sooo patiently to go for another ride but mom wants some lap belts to contain her from bouncing out of the seat.

the welting on the fuel tank strap was originally stapled to the metal. I got the welting from beachwood canvas works (https://www.beachwoodcanvas.com/)
and used stainless steel wire I got from the local hardware and used the original staple holes. If your metal strap doesn't have the holes you could drill holes 3/8" apart and then use the same method.

no turn signals other than the use of hand signals.

Why not try a modern seal in the output? I use them and it doesn't leak at the outputs. That is an area where no one will see it isn't an original part. Mine always seep at the shims. Less so with the last assembly, but still seeps.

agreed.

when the case was rebuilt a new modern complete seal kit from the normal supplier was used. However never again will I purchase one of those as they were pretty much all crap and we ended up taking it all back apart and using rtv. we left the front and rear outputs alone as they seemed like the only ones that were decent. yesterday I went to NAPA and got a high quality seal. I pulled the parking brake drum off and the seal was completely blown out due to what I would call cheap quality. it didn't leak before I drove it and I heard & smelled the result of it failing. the yoke was smooth and not at all grooved. I installed the new seal and put it all back together. I didn't fill it back up yet as I was waiting for the rtv on the splines to set up first.
