The Work Begins

We have been inspecting the NAPCO bumper to bumper. So far, the overall condition makes the vehicle an excellent restoration candidate. We have been changing and filling up fluids in preparation to attempt to start the truck. It has not been started since approximately 1990. The engine is not seized, but the oil is so sludgy it will not drain. We will be removing the oil pan to clean it out and do a lower engine inspection. The front brake bleeders unscrewed easily, but we have not tried to bleed the brakes yet. The original wiring harness is mostly intact, but so frayed it would be dangerous to use. Fortunately at some point in the past, most of it was disconnected and wires were run to the starter and ignition that are still in good shape.
