Took my COE out for a test drive today. A whopping 24 degrees outside and no heater, but I never felt cold. The motor seems to run decent after replacing all the valve springs, but I think the timing is way off. I know the crappy chrome distributor hold down lets the distributor twist easily and I've never put a timing light on it...mostly because it is buried in a moving box somewhere. I've had trans issues with a really quick shift from 2nd to 3rd. I unplugged my lockup wiring on my trans and discovered my shift issue is actually with that. It is locking up in 2nd gear and that dogs the truck. I thought I removed that wiring...hmmm? I may have to pull the pan and see. I still have my brake issue where just touching the brake pedal makes the pedal almost feel like it is pulled down by itself for about 1 inch, the brakes then all grab hard for a split second then instantly, it all acts all normal. I am going to replace the booster to eliminate it as the problem. I suspect it is the internal valve that is messed up. Now if I can only remember the year of Chevy truck that I took the booster off ...? I still hear wind noise, even at slower speeds. It comes from the upper front corners of the cab. I wish I knew what causes that. Even with all this, it was fun to drive. I need to get a house, a garage and get back to work finishing it.
