Looked at this fan at the parts shop
Seems like it might do the trick
Seems like I have an oppertunity here… ideas?
As I was stopped for gas today I noticed the emblem has fallen off the grill.
So, I will make something to replace it, I was thinking maybe copper?
Or the AZ flag in 4 colors? (Red, Yellow, Blue & copper)
New Tires bought
Grabbed these from Craigs list for $80 !!
The Original Tire Size
The van came with a good set of tires
LUG PATTERN 8 X6.5
8.75 R16.5 LT
They have decent tread, the driver front looses a little air, enough to need to be filled about once a week.
So I will be looking at changing the tires, and perhaps the whole wheels to change from 16.5-inch rims to a more standard 17-inch (or 16-inch)
Roof Rack installed
Found a great roof rack at a local Junk Yard ($65)
It has the perfect amount of rust to match the van, and really makes it look great
Fuel Filter Replaced
Today I replaced the Fuel Filter ($4)
The only fuel filter on this one is in the carburetor, so it is small and requires taking off the dog house. I think I will keep a few available to swap these out whenever I have the doghouse open, for a few dollars it’s easy insurance
