    Replaced the leaking fan clutch with a new one. Installed new belts while i was in there as well. Replaced the supply air lines for the shutter stat. I will be replacing that thing with a thermal switch and solenoid for automatic and manual operation of the fan.

    Belt numbers for reference:
    Alternator : 9451 @ oreillys
    Fan 2: TR28463 at Oreillys
    Water pump : 5060436 Dayco


    Installed a new headlight switch with a Borg Warner # S440
    Changed the oil and filters along with the fuel, coolant, and transmission filter and ran the grease gun on it.

    Installed some small but powerful LED lights I got from the donkey.

    Also installed a vent for forced air to the intake

    Installed some JW Speaker LEDs i got from The Donkey's garage of military parts. Took alot of amps off of the headlight switch.

    Had a blower motor go out while in Georgia. So i gotta replace that. As well as the alternator is on the fritz. Not charging on the 24v side and spiking badly on the 12v side with a hard load. Will put the standard Cummins 24v alternator on it and add a bussman equalizer. I do worry about the surge from the jake power so i will have to isolate that power side i believe.

    Going to install standard military turns and tails as well. I may even look at the military light switch swap. Need a harness plug to work with then.
