    New water pump. Installed all the parts for the auto choke. Adjusted the valves. THEN I installed the new dash pad. Had to pull the glovebox, factory radio, and dash cluster in order to get the pad on. The hardest part was unhooking/hooking the factory steel oil pressure line. Look close boys, 6 cylinder K5s are few and far between.:D

    That is the mighty 250. 72K original miles. When I pulled the Valve cover, no sludge, just wiped the inside out. You can still see the red paint marks on the valvesprings, even.

    Nice job Mike, looks great. Like the new dashpad.

    If you keep this up you'll become the new "Lord of Bling" right after 70jimmy. :haha:

    By the way, that 6 popper made it almost all the way up Engineer pass in 2 wheel drive through the snow. It gets up and goes anywhere a V8 will.

    Think I'll start calling it the little mule, being that funky brown and all. :D
