    DSCF4294.jpgDSCF4295.jpgDSCF4296.jpgDSCF4297.jpgDSCF4298.jpgDSCF4299.jpgBack on task tonight after work. I wanted to remove the engine wiring harness. That was done easily. I removed the starter, fly wheel cover, bell bolts, alternators, fan, exhaust bolts/nuts, fly wheel/flex plate bolts, steering box, drained the transmission, and transfer case. Called it a night. Everything is coming apart easily. I rebuilt this entire truck 2 months before it was wrecked back in 2006-2007. Happy Holidays. Hope you are learning something. I am enjoying the challenge. I have a goal for a bare frame by Monday. I am slacking I know. But I have other work I must do also.

I feel like I am kicking butt on this project. I drove this truck in the garage on the first Saturday December 2017. It was at 1PM. It is now just sitting with the axles in it. I must work in the AM. I have a goal to get the frame stripped and out of my shop. I want to put my tractor in the shop and check it out. I bought it and never checked it out really close. But I will have time. I am about to hibernate for the winter. Just partial hibernation. I used my little wheeled table. I need a bigger one for engines but it will work for now. I pulled the engine with the beam winch. Worked great. Saves me the picker floor space. The engine, transmission, transfer case fit nicely on the table and I wheeled it into place. I was able to remove each side of the exhaust in one piece. I had someone ask if I was keeping the big pipes on the build. I said yes. It was a brand new exhaust and is a solid expensive piece. The truck sounds great with it. When I am completed and someone would envy buying it they can change the exhaust. I have the spring bolts out of the frame. Gravity is basically holding it together till tomorrow. Then Poof it's all apart and stored for the long winters nap. I was also out salvaging heavy oak wood blocks from the decking boom. Happy Holidays. I hope you are enjoying the build. If NOT well Have a great time at ping pong or watching TV.

    Default Mission Acomplished Goal exceeded

    Well I done it. I had the frame pulled out and bare and tethered fast to the barn wall. In exactly 1 week after driving it in the shop. The axles, body and driveline are all stored and out of my way. I am onto another project. My Kubota tractor. I never owned a Kubota before. I am impressed with how well built they are. I worked out there the past 2 weeks with no heat. That gets old fast. I will be partially hibernating this winter. When the frame comes back from being blasted and painted I may do some thing. I have the complete lift kit available. How do I get the drop arm off the front axle knuckle? DSCF4321.jpgDSCF4322.jpgDSCF4327.jpgDSCF4319.jpgDSCF4320.jpg
    Happy Holidays.

    That steering arm has the tapered cones to lock it. Judicious swinging of a hammer on the side sometimes jars the cone free. If that doesn't work you could tack the nuts to the studs and screw it all out together.

    Or just use the front differential out of the donor frame. This old guy don't like impact work. Shoulders and wrists don't feel well after words. I will get Jr to get it off or just rebuild the other differential. Thanks for the info. Still hating on the lift kits. I have a pile of 4" lift kit parts.

    DSCF4334.jpgDSCF4336.jpgDSCF4335.jpgDug out the last set of loose heads I have on the property. I knew I had 1 but a few weeks back a member came for M1010 parts and found me another on in the M1010 he was salvaging parts from. I am going to drop them off and get ahead on the build with my parts. I bought the front calipers and warranted the front brake pas at Autozone. I have a lot of new parts to purchase till spring rolls around. That way I can get right on with the build. I like the break in work schedule. I am going to work mainly on as need basis for a while. Give myself a rest. Right now the Kubota is my passion and drive. Happy Holidays. Keep my fingers crossed that these heads have no cracks. This was a 1984-85 engine from the looks of the rocker arms. My wrecked M1009 still has the original transmission and engine that came from the factory. I know it had 3300 miles on it when I bought it is 1996.

    I dropped off the used 6.2 heads at the machine shop this morning. I told them no hurry when ever you get to them. Sometimes that's a bad thing to do. I had an M1009 truck setting at a body shop for 8 years and told the guy no hurry when ever you get to it. One day I just went and picked it up. Good side was he stored it inside and had it covered all that time for free. I sold it after it sat that long the minor rust that was on it did not even compare to trucks of the same year. And it was in the back corner covered under a tarp all that time. It was all original including the paint and minor rust. The rust was at the mirror bracket holes and that is why I took it there to get fixed. It was back when I was hurt and out of service. Happy Holidays.

    ......... I also used the same sentence in a paint shop do not hurry whenever you have time
    It took 5 years to paint my 69 El Camino....... LOL.
    I think there is something magical happening when you pronounce this sentence.......LOL.
