Ball joint puller works pretty good popping bushings out. More cleaning. Got to replace axle seals. Was leaking when I got it.

Nice save!  It's great to see these old trucks be reborn.

Your photo documentation is great.  Keep up the great work.

To cover up my wiring from paint, I used aluminum foil rather than tape - it's a little easier and quicker to remove.  Just a thought.

It looks like you taped and identified the electrical connections.  Good call.

IIRC, the wiring diagrams are located in the Tech section.

I should have thought about using foil. Thanks for the tip. Yes I know about the diagrams, I'll look it up after I get everything done. For now that section of wiring is staying on the transmission.
