Got the 1961 F100 to start. Had to pour gas in the carb out of an oil can, but the motor sounds good. Got the carb soaking in carb cleaner,start looking for a kit tommorrow. I'm happy,the old dog sat unused for about 18 years, hearing it run twas neat! Next on the list-pull and clean fuel tank, replace fuel pump,brake wheel cylinders,battery,tires, etc,etc,etc...........
I need to find something else to sell, anyone need a large parrot cage?
Adios, John

I pulled the Airstream out front yesterday. Took the top front cabinet apart and reglued all the loose joints,sanded and linseed oiled it. Got it all reinstalled today. Then a wash job,even with the sploches it looks better washed. We are off to Vegas this weekend for a couple of days. Can't wait!
The 61 F100 is back to waiting, I have too build a couple of nipples for the new water pump & t-stat housing. I got the carb rebuilt, new fuel pump installed rad flushed and the old water pump off. When I replaced the fuel pump and it finally got a snort of fresh fuel all three rubber fuel line blew at the same time, it was quite the flood, for a brief moment I feared the garage was going to go up in flames. But after a few moments of franic Keystone Kops activity it was under control.
More to follow. Adios, John

John, great thread, fun to read what has transpired over the years you've had your TW.

The truck looks great - vintage like its tow-mate. The two will look great going down the road together.
