Post My 1971 Travelall
Recently pulled the engine out of my Travelall, it had a freeze plug leak and bad oil leaks. This is after pressure washing it.
Image

There was only one freeze plug leaking, but I found four other potential leaks blocked by crud.
Image

This was my chance to clean up the mess, loving the pressure washer.
Image

Made some good progress on the engine, still a few things to do before it's ready to go back in. Changed timing cover gasket, front seal, oil pan gasket, valley pan gasket, intake gasket, water pump gasket, thermostat housing gasket, fuel pump gasket, oil filter housing gasket, Installing brass freeze plugs, flushed passages, cleaned up and painted. Still gonna change rear main seal and camshaft gasket, got good used water pipes coming. Harmonic balancer was starting to come apart, installed a better one I had already. Clutch is already rebuilt, and flywheel surfaced.
Image

Removed transmission and transfer case. The transmission was a T36, going back in with a T35. This will take the granny gear from 6.21 to 7.17. The only difference in these transmissions is the internals, can't tell the difference from the outside. You have to pull the cover and count teeth, or drop the transmission, turn the input and count rotations on the output. There are three variations, the one in my truck is the overdrive. The transfer case would pop and jump when going downhill in low range, got a rebuilt one from a local shop.
Image

Image

What's going back in, transfer case is a 205. Still need to swap a few parts. I'm not trying to recreate my truck, this is my daily driver. Just trying to make it as capable as I can without going to the extreme of stacking transmissions, also going through stuff to minimize future problems.
Image

Still parts to clean, and this crossmember needs repairs. I havn't pulled one out that didn't need repairs.

Thanks. I didn't know I would be doing all this right now, the freeze plugs started it all. I'll be happy to have the mess gone, and the other stuff already done.

Post Re: My 1971 Travelall
installed new rear main seal today, I use the cup to prevent damage to the seal. The inner part is going over the crankshaft at the same time the outer part of the seal is going in, I damaged the rubber part on the first one I installed without the cup. Someone on an IH forum told me to do it that way, works good.

I mistakenly posted pics of our Kings River whitewater rafting trip here, moved them to random pictures.

Post Re: My 1971 Travelall
I'm thinking maybe I switched the two small wires on the starter. It starts, but the key going back to "run" kills it. I checked for power at the coil when the key is in the run position, and none. 345 by the way.

Good one, I don't think ignition wires are green though.

I laughed myself! lol

Assuming you connected the wiring correctly, it's probably just the key switch. I've recently had a string of bad ignition switches in my life recently. With the battery disconnected, check ohms on the switch to see if it's working.

I couldn't remember which wire went where on the starter. The ones that go on the big post are a no brainer, bigger terminals. The two little ones are the same, except one is longer. I put the longer one to the post further away. In the meantime I've been working on other things, carburetor was leaking, and water pump was leaking.

Post Re: My 1971 Travelall
You have the starter wires on correct. If they were backwards it would not crank or it would crank in the run position. One small wire is the "start" circuit and the other is the resistor bypass to feed more power to the coil during cranking. The main ign wire is probably not hooked up to the coil positive.

Post Re: My 1971 Travelall
I hot wired the coil last night and got it to run, now I need to chase down why the power isn't getting there anymore.
