Well finished up installing most of the parts on the brake transformation still need to install the valves, but the ones that came with the van don't fit wrong size fitting. Not surprised none of the parts that came with the van really worked.




The rims fit back on with no issues plenty of room with 15" rims. Now I need my babe over to help bleed the system. Would be nice to drive the old girl again.

Yes it all looks pretty good! If by valves you mean residual valves ,yes you will need an adapter if you are running 3/16 lines. The bleeder screw location looks perfect.

After working on her for the last 6 weeks fixing brakes, gas tank, shocks and door alignment. I have 29 issues to fix in 21 days. Super sticky with these inspection...... well time to go do some more wrenching. lol I'M IN !

Well most of the stuff is electrical wiring and it is a mess, does any one know if new wiring harness's are available? But they have every thing from no rubber on the brake peddal, wiper wash squirt mech and loose door handles to leaky rear axle seals and a small engine oil drip. I will be looking into that antique plate path.

My plan was to get every thing working the way it use to when new, but pick away at it as I also enjoy some drive time. All the major stuff that makes it safe to drive like brakes, steering, signal, brake and headlights all work good.

Some states have the antique tags & some dont - here in WA. State - we have "collector plates" available. Pay 1 money & never have to renew. Vehicle must be 25 years old+ .There are now 2 other plate types approved-here= custom and street rod - yet they are new & approved now & ill bet must be renewed yearly?? as this states so far in debt-theyre looking at all revenue producing things. Im running 2= collector plates now and will have 7 vehicles lisenced as such next year. I will have nothing later than 25 + year old vehicles.

Here in Saskatchewan,Canada.... we have the antique plate and mine was $127.00 for the year. NO INSPECTION REQUIRED. Now this will only give you a $900.00 value on the vihicle if total Loss occurs, that meens $900.00 - deductable = you get what ever is left. Now I can still put a package policy on this van after it is complete under this same antique plate, and that will push the value up and so does the price for insurance go up. They did suggest to have it appraised first and to bring that paper in with me when I do put a policy on it. So the more it's worth the more I pay for insurance was kind of the bottom line. Which I guess only makes sence. I did ask if there were any restrictions being that it was plated as an antique, and the guy from the Regina head office told me that if it has all factory safety equipment on the van and it can do the speed limit then there were none.

We might require inspection for a antique vehicle if it's from out of the province here in Saskatchewan.

But our inspections here are basically emergency stuff... wear or leaks of vital devices like brakes, steering, suspension, electrical... but noting an engine leak as a reason to fail? I don't think so. As long as you can stop, go, turn, park, see... those are things that impact the safety aspect of vehicle. I have heard the rubber brake pad thing!

Sorry about your luck Lyrad... gonna have to order stuff and get it on quick so you don't have to pay for reinspection.

Ah yes out of province usually requires an inspection, on just about any vehicle you bring in. But according to the Big wiggs in regina, if the vehicle is from saskatchewan, you can plate it without being asked to have it inspected. Hell I plated my 67 and all it was-was a shell without doors, glass, motor or brake system, only becus I heard that the loop hole was going to close and I didn't want to go through the hassle of an inspection. I hope you are able to get it all worked out Lyrad..I'm sure you will get it on the road soon.

affraid Loophole closing? I guess I better check into that... my earlies aren't plated right now. I do know that when SGI and the police run Operation Street Sweep (safety inspection check stops), I did not drive my vans around because I felt there were issues that my vans have that were worse than my 85 G van that failed such sting operations.

Lyrad, you have a great van, and will get everything done.

Hey there fellow member's, I thought i would start off by fixing my marker light that weren't working..... but when I removed the screws and the lens I discovered that there is no wiring to any of the four lens. Could my van have come fresh from the factory with no maker lights, or did someone remove all the wiring? There are no holes going into the front doors from the main body that wires would go through, so not sure, any one else with a 69 and no markers?

Tell them they are reflectors not markers. tell them 1970 started the lighted markers. ( that is when dodge started). Asfar as some of the other things lose handle. Rubber on the steel pedel doesn't sound like a big deal . And things you should do regardless. As long as the wiring isn't to big of a job. In the U.S.A. every state regulates it's own inspection . So every 1 is dirrernt.. a tinted window can be legal in 1 state and illagal in the next. As far as Antique Insurance in PennslyVANia each a thousand dollars of insurance is $10.00 or Ten thousand would cost $100.00 that is antique. classis. street-rod and Collector plates

I checked out antique plates for Alberta they are available but are intended for vehicles that are only operated in connection with a car shows or car meeting, not for daily driving. sooo I'm pooched there. I will just have to be patient and pick away.

antique plates and insurance is normaly 5,000 miles a year. if you get a winter rat then you should not have to much to worry about. a car cruise is also a show. i never seen a police hassel any one about were they are going. you can also disdonect your odometer if needed. In PennslVANia you can turn your odometer to all 0000000 .with that plate...Take the pick up or van to work cuz there is a car cruise after work..
