Welcome and congratulations on your find. Great story. Your plan of attack sounds like a good one. Having car restoration experience qualifies for this project. The biggest difference with truck restoration is everything is bigger and heavier and your car tools are not big enough. Keep us posted.

Great story, and a lucky find! Keep us posted on your progress. Sounds like you’ve got a good plan of attack, granted that’s the same idea I’m using now with my LS95, and the right reason to put your heart into this.

If you ever need anything specific I’m sure some guys on here will be able to help you out.

Just a word of advice from experience, make sure before you really try starting it you clean out the fuel tanks, the fuel filters, the fuel lines and the carb.

Thanks for the replies so far guys. I wanted to get the thread started, but I'm sure I'll have more specific questions as I go.  One thing that is new to me, that I need to research more, is the positive ground electrical system. 

CaptainCrutch, thanks for the advice. I was thinking I'd set up a temporary tank for the test start to avoid any possible issues.
