    In the house for supper. Engine is ready to be lifted out of frame. Two bolts to remove that hold oil cooler to firewall but these do not need to be removed to pull engine. After supper I need to find a place to store KT17 on the cherry picker so I can pull the B43 from the 318. It is an oily mess under there. Don't really want to go into engine but will do what I need to seal up leaks.

    Replaced the fuel line from fuel pump to shutoff valve ... old, brittle, and cracked.

    The engine is out.

    • Forgot to disconnect starter cable so had one more chore.
    • Removed the firewall so I can clean it and install firewall insulation from John.
    • Removed trans cooler.
    • I now have a clear shot to the H3 valve installation.

    Tomorrow most of day will be spent cleaning and planning valve installation. And I have to mow the yard also.

    Cleaned up the firewall today.

    • Tape and adhesive residue was a real chore to remove. Used paint thinner, a wire brush, and 5-6 paper rags.
    • Finished cleaning both sides with coarse and fine steel wool. Wiped down the rear side (opposite side of insulation) with paint thinner.
    • Applied two coats of black paint to rear side.
    • I do not plan on painting front surface under Johns firewall insulation. I think his material will adhere better to unpainted surface.
    • Paint should be dry enough tomorrow to install firewall insulation.
    • Need to clean up transmission cooler and then it can be attached to the firewall.
    • This can then be set aside till ready assemble after H3 is installed.

    QUESTION: Driveshaft is more than likely original ... 37 years old. How do I determine if it needs service or do I just go ahead and replace knuckles and bearings?

    You will see a heat gun in the first photo. I tried that to remove tape adhesive but did not work well. Paint thinner and elbow grease worked best.

    Gabby, Driveshaft: Clamp in vise with center trunnion roughly vertical & horizontal. Grab outer ends (that attach to engine or hydro) and move up & down, left & right, or even at 45º. ANY amount of play and bearings are starting to go bad. You can also try prying trunnion with large screwdriver or small pry bar.

    It's out now, for peace of mind, I'd replace universals and forget about it for the next 30 years! Bob

    Thanks Bob. I plan on replacing the u-joints just because of age. I have replaced these on many Chevy driveshafts in my younger years so process should be similar. I did attempt to remove u-joint from a 317 with bad driveshaft. Trying to beat it out with a mallet was not successful. Will use my hydraulic pressure and appropriate size impact sockets. I have a spare driveshaft if I break something.

    FYI Gabby,

    It's not really worth it for one driveshaft but they make a dedicated u-joint removing tool now.

    https://www.summitracing.com/search/...allation-tools

    I've never used one, just thought I'd give you something to think about.

    Napa has a great adhesive remover. it's called Adhesive Remover...go figure. I used it to remove many decals from the sides of trucks and construction equipment that are bought from other companies. It still takes some elbow work but it takes off even the old dried up sunbaked residue fairly easily without harming any paint that the stuff might be on.

    Nice looking tools but for a one time use I will use my hydraulic press.

    Adhesive Remover, I have a can of it around somewhere but couldn't find it.

    Thanks ... Gabby

    Haven't pulled the driveshaft off the pump yet; next part of project.

    I did get the firewall insulation installed this morning. Thought I had an issue with fitup but I was wrong again. Need to stop these late night hours in the garage.

    Need to clean up the oil cooler and install on the firewall but heading for rural property. That should give the insulation adhesive to "bite" the metal surface.

    The H3 conversion will be wrote and posted in a separate thread so I can link it to Ryan214's write up. Hopefully the two of us provide members with useful information to proceed with that project.

    Cleaned the garage again so I can put the car away. One of these days I'll get the truck back in the garage.

    Question about the insulation - I see you transferred some hole locations to it. That implies it is a generic piece that needs custom work to work on whatever it's put on? No big deal, my 318 could likely use use that insulation pad, so I probably need to figure out how to pull the engine so I can address the oil leaks and that would be the time it would happen.

    I just wanted to go into the new insulation application with my tool set configured with the needed tools to do that sort of work. I have a good hole punch set, but it doesn't go into the full inch sizes. Using a box cutter is for me like using a circular saw to make a circle.

    Nevermind...I worry too much.... It's probably not going to happen this summer anyway. I need it to mow with, it's survived for this long without it.

    But one more question...is the reason for the insulation to keep the inflow of air at ambient outside temps before it goes into the engine tins? Because the shield itself transfers engine heat to the battery and pedestal area? It seems like it would anyway. Or maybe it's just a sound damper?
