    Great project. Thank you for heading this up and following through. It took almost a year to get the fuel tanks from start to finish, so I know about the patience requirement.

    I was thinking similarly. There appears to be missing metal around where the door pillar meets the floor. At 54 years old, a 17k mile van is going to look completely different from that.

    Hi Mark, nice looking Sportvan! There is no oil in the column. Seems to me that someone has filled the steering box with gear oil and the seal on top (where the sterring shaft exits) is either...

    Questions.

    Does anything else work, independently? Haedlights, brake lights?

    It could be your ignition switch. Happened in my '66. Anything that operates based on the key, didn't. Everything...

    I use a Sharpe Cobalt 5814L that my brother gave me decades ago. Admittedly, I was too scared of messing something up, so it stayed in the box until 2014. I've never used an Iwata or Sata gun, but I...

    Most shifters don't come with a cable. You'll need the 12' cable for almost any of them. I used the B&M Megashifter.

    What is the amperage of the fuses you're adding? I got a nice secondary fuse block to run auxiliary lights in mine. It may work for you, too.

    I used the Steele ones on my van. The front doors will not accept them on all hinges. They are a good quality and fit perfectly.
