    Ooo good call on that. I probably need to get a 3rd side pull drain valve!

    Yeah we were probably too timid then! Did you disconnect it from the rest of the steering first? We gave up after not getting 2 of the 4 centering cones out of the steering arms too. Admittedly we were kinda rushing to meet a timeline too which encouraged us to save that job for later haha

    Yeah I'm the one that dropped both tanks out. I was going to replace both because why not? The one with the single drain is the new one, but the old one also only had a single drain.

    So a year ago my dad and I went in on buying a Deuce together, something we had wanted to do for more than a decade. We shopped around and found a decent AirForce model. We didn't have a very big time window to pick it up. (I'm in the military and he is a corporate pilot) but our schedules...

    Sherpa winch vs PTO winch

    That's alright because I still hawk this thread! I haven't gotten around to putting up the funds to build the Deuce up. I definitely dig your set ups and thank you for sharing!!

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Good looking rig! I need to get me some convoy lights! Eventually I'll get around to looking for an LED set to put on OD poles for the same look but less draw on the generator

    Dead Pilot's M36a2 Build

    Glad everyone is ok and the damage is relatively limited! Looks like that Dogbone took a heck of a beating!
