So for no intelligent reason I went and bought a 46' K-6-250. I've always wanted to restore a vehicle and a two ton truck is as least useful. Slightly daunting in size, but useful. I am not a mechanic, but I am mechanically inclined. I understand the basic components and what they should do. So far I have changed the plugs, ground strap, coil wire to distributor, coil wire to battery, moved the starter wires around (they are 1/0), replaced the plug wires, drained the coolant and oil, rebuilt the carb, and got bit by several hundred ants (I live in Az) I have isolated the electrical system so I don't start a fire or burn out the gauges. I did get it to run for a couple of seconds before I stopped it. Any help on what kind of oil goes in the transmission or rear diff? And whether or not the exhaust is supposed to go through the passenger fender? I assume not by the ugly peanut butter welds.
