If I were closer I would stop by and check it out. But my boat wouldn't cross the big pond even on a good day. Good Luck. keep up posted. I would start a thread on your rebuild. I am dragging my feet due to heavy rain the past week. The sun is shining brightly today. Never know what I can get completed. Thank you for sharing. I do everything the hard way also. Gets it done on a budget.
    I need to get me a torch The ORD kit came with (greasable) bushings. Forgot about radiator isolators, thanks for mentioning. You are more then welcome to come by and check it out haha!

    I probably should start a rebuild thread. Maybe put everything I've posted so far in there as well...

    Found I had the opportunity to replace my heater core. Of course I broke off 2 of the bolts at the plastic housing. It's back up and running with no leaks and a repaired plastic housing. I'm not sure if I can see the difference in heat living in So Cal but at least the passenger's feet won't be wet.

    Had an idle speed rattling noise, thought it was torque converter bolts or flex plate falling apart..luckily it was just the starter heat shield. A five minute fix turned into a two hour exploratory wrench spinning exercise. Now to change the oil.

    Put Dog Dish hub caps from a civilian K-5 Blazer on my M1009--looks pretty sharp.

    Finally got a little time on my "new to me" M1010. First thing was to do the "doghead" starter relay upgrade. It was nice to find it had already been done. Sweet. Next up, ditching the glow plug resister bank and moving it to 12v system. Checked that off. It was getting late so the last thing was installing the new wiper blades. Good start for a couple hours of work. Still got lots of stuff to do.

    nice.

    being the 'radio guy' had its perks.. heh.

    let one little thing go wrong and it goes from 'why can't you do this? ' to 'what can we do to help you?'

    oh the stories I could tell... like one officer came in 'radio will rx but not tx'... I go out there and he had taken off his VHF 5/8 and swapped it for an 800 Mhz 1/4 wave... becuase a county to the north had migrated to a trunked system and he though the antennas looked cool... 😂


    Here's your sign, sir.... you're responsible for the new countywide memo saying not to touch anything radio related... 😂 😂


    about your setup.... longwire with tuner or band specific dipole?

    The antenna was a 90' (each leg) dipole fed with open wire line. Tuned with a B&W VS1500A coupled to a IC7300 and Ten Tec 500 watt PA.

    Worked great on 80 and 40 meters.

    Customers and antennas do not get along, it is amazing what they can do to make them cease functioning.
