When I get this 312 running I am going to buy some things from Portlines.
A wheel puller
A "whack with a hammer" tool, I have a tender that front truck fell off. Seller forgot to tell me it was loose.
I have 2 or 3 metal hand rails missing from the 312 so will order them. They are cheap.

Need an order to Jeff Kane also. Some rivets and bushings, some metal spacers for side rods. Brushes and sprngs. And some more screws.

flyernut, I will send my end of deal Monday. Too much to do fri and sat to do sooner.
Hope that is ok.

Stuff for my truck is coming along. Exhaust kit, and bed topper kit are in garage.
All that is left is to get spray in bed liner. Everything else is bought and paid for.
Install the stuff and I am done with truck. The only other thing I might get is a cold air
intake. Suppose to help. Less restrictive, cooler air to engine.

My son has a K&N cold air intake on his Silverado. I hope you like the sound of a old 4-barrel kicking in,lol!

If you remember, we used to take air filter element out of the air cleaner.
You could hear the air being sucked into engine.

Got my roll pin set for setting rivets in the mail. It was like$9.00 or $10.00
with free shipping off ebay. These can be used for many different things. It actually came yesterday but I did not go down to mail
box till this morning. Saw something I did not want to. A very
big copperhead snake that had been run over in my driveway. I hate snakes. I have lived in this house for 45 years and this is first
copperhead I have seen in the yard. I have watched for them all those years. If you see one there is more. My son was over last night and I think he run over it. Good job son!!! I have snakes here. Mainly garter and black snakes. Black snakes will eat copperheads. They missed one.

Damn! That is unnerving.

Which rivets on AF are these generally used to set?

The wack it with a hammer model generally will do all rivets...except... the tiny small one that connects the draw-bar to the front tender truck.. That's where the small roll pin punch comes into play.
