    Well I tinkered on the Ranch Manche today,.. checked cold start (AOK!) swapped on a good Tail gate that opened so I could toss a Chrysler 8.25 and D30 into the bed from the 88 DD and my neighbor and I were playing with the clutch pedal. With the cap on you could hear air loss, so he pulled the cap and a few bubbles came out of the reservoir,.. Now we have some pedal pressure but it escapes,... the pedal is low as well, but I did manage to move forward and backward a few times (WHOOT). So it may be air in the line or it there is a leak somewhere, but no visible leaks so far,..

    Oh and no power to the A/C or heater motor,... turn the knob and nothing; nada; zilch,.. another day,..

    and the E-brake and part time light are stuck on,.. again ,... another day

    The parts removed were in BRUTAL condition, i had to use channel lock pliers to get the rotor off (seized on), cap was full of rust and the rotor machined a groove in the cap tips, the plugs and wires were totally shot,..

    I still need to do a fuel filter and get a few tanks of fuel through it to really see the state of the motor. It does still have a few odd noises I need to look into but so far I am happy!
