    I used stainless steel. Also here is another special tool I made. If you need to rebuild your PTO you will probable need one.

    Looks like you turned down the width of a socket . What size is the socket ? You are creating the m108 special tools set.

    Ya it's real tight between the nut and yoke so a normal socket won't fit. It's an 1 1/2 socket. I used a punch to get the nut loose but figured I had better put a a bit of torque to it so it didn't back off.

    Cool. No that the dog bones are done I plan to mount my wheels soon and replace some hoses and hopefully operate the crane.

    Made a mile stone yesterday. First time running since the tear down. Still need to get some hydraulic lines made before I can try out the crane. I had one made last week and wow. 150 buck for one line and there are ten total. Here's the truck now. Also got an idea on what year it is now to. I had to remove one of the air tanks to fix a leak and while cleaning it I found a 53 date on it.

    Is it an optical illusion or is the boom bent?

    Do you have trouble with getting the hoses made other than the price. I believe the ends are obsolete

    cattlerepairman I'm not sure but it is possible there is a slight bow in it.

    SETOYTA Mine has adapters to go from the old style to JIC but a few are rusted out so I'm going to change the fittings at the control box to make them all JIC. Getting JIC fittings that size is no problem if the price doesn't scare you.
