Smooth Shiftin'

Nice find in the mailbox after work yesterday! Only needed one set but doubled up because they were just a couple bucks each. Always good to have spares... Now that pesky shift linkage should stay where it's supposed to and not bind up.

Friends coming to the rescue today, as we take care of the rear brakes and tail lights. Then it's just a matter of gettin' 'er over to Steve's to mount the new dual feed master cylinder, run the new brake lines and bleed the system, after which we'll be ready to roll mechanically.

The final piece of the puzzle will be insuring and registering the truck. The 30-plus year old registration papers that my brother saved should help to make the DMV part of the process fairly painless. Honestly, I don't care how long the lines are that day. I'll be smiling the whole time...
