    Default 1956 M135 6x6 Update

    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 job, extended cab and camper to put on. And to find some tires

    That is one of the sweetest sounding 302's ever! Is the transmission shifting tight?

    Watch that high range reverse. We use it but it's been known to have a weak spot. With the low rpm on the truck, for you to back up like that on soft ground tells me that transmission is solid. Nice work! Get all those new updates coming on this thread so we can keep up with you!
