My long hard work over winter paid off. I unseized the engine, change the oil, installed cam shaft, push rods, clean spark plugs, repaired the flintstones floor in the cab, installed seats, lights mirrors, put in another fuel pump, bled the brakes and put in new brake fluid.
Now to the paint...
Thanks! Those gauges are stock from the 50's. I just turned the switch after i installed everything and bam it lit up red. So i was like that is nice i have never seen that before. Yes they are easy to read in the dark.
In October i purchased a truck i have wanted for the last 10 years. A 1956 M135 6x6 Round Nose Jimmy Gasser. (Wanted a Diesel Instead but whatever)
I must say since i laid eyes on this beauty in October and joining the Steel Soldiers Forum website i have become determined to prove something to...
