    Got the plow frame off of the K20 a couple of weeks ago, had to cut most of the bolts to get it off.

    Finnaly got some decent weather again, so I took the front bumper and grill guard off of the CUCV, only had to cut a couple of those bolts off. Starting to muont the plow frame, and hope to make a custom bumper for it.

    What have I done to my Square? Absolutely nothing. Life has been crazy busy. In the interim I have generated a longer list of things to do to it and everything else for that matter...lol...

    Wait a minute, my all-in-one HVAC unit is square, I got it operating properly...FINALLY!!! Turned out to be the air passages needed to be vacuumed out so the inducer fan would operate the pressure switch, and also the condenser fins in the airbox were dirty.

    The truck, though, needs an oil change. The battery is charged and sitting on the patio.

    Hmm. If the trans still works, pretend you didn't see that and move on.

    Went and looked at a wrecked 85 Blazer as a possible source for a tranny for my 86. I know that the early 700R4 trannys weren't very good, did they get them straightened out by 85?

    '87 or later seems to be what I hear the most.

    Reinstalled the transmission most of the way after doing a starter, rear main seal, and flexplate along with attempting to wash and degrease the trans and transfer case while it was out.

    Dam, I was afraid of that. I might get it anyways, the trans is working fine, and I can use some other parts off the truck too.

    I have a 700 R4 in my 88 that I am going to junk soon, but it needs a rebuild. I plan to keep that as a core for a future rebuild.
