    11B, 19E, and 19K. After active duty I decided you walked too much in the Infantry and switched to Armor so I could ride everywhere. I was in the 5th and 9th IDs while active. I guess I was so important that after I left they deactivated the Divisions.

    Not too much accomplished today, pretty wiped from work. Removed what was left of the LH fenders and cleaned out most of the debris in the tractor tub. Found a hull plug and a few pieces of hardware. Tried turning the engine over with a socket on the engine pulley but I just can't get in there, looks like I will have to pull the radiator to get at it. I planned on sending the radiator out to be cleaned any way.

    Try turning the motor with a socket on the camshaft pulley, on the left in this pic. Easier to reach than the crankshaft, got mine to turn by hand(breaker bar) I think it was just my clutch plate that was stuck.

    I tried the cam pulley today and I don't have the correct size socket, the one I have is just a bit too big. I tried moving it and I can see it moving but not really turning. Will need to get the correct socket.

    I noticed today my throttle cable was missing, went to the clean out parts pile and found it. It appears some one needed my good one and tossed their junker into the tractor tub. I can see where the attachment point bolts are loose and the cotter pins are straightened out. At least they put the hardware back. Another part to find.....

    Finished cleaning out the hull today, found a few treasures down there, c rat spoon, horn button cover, stubby screwdriver, misc. hardware and some type of cover with a sight glass. Removed the old engine cover hinge, directional wand and control box and rotten water pump belts. Extra to my needs for the goat pool is a seat pin w/chain, brake boot and shift boot. Happy 4th.
