    Spent Saturday installing a pyrometer gauge and a boost gauge. I followed a similar gauge bracket idea from an old post of a fellow SS member I saw awhile ago. Drill and tap was easy (did it with the engine running). I got the existing screw out of the top of the intake for the boost gauge. I didn't want to strip the allen bolt... so penetrating oil, heat, tap tap tap, repeat....finally broke it loose.
    Just drove it for the first time today to start documenting the readings.
    I'm not sure if I'll bypass the FDC or even play with the fuel adjustment at this time. Just thought it couldn't hurt to add the gauges and see what the engine is doing.

    Got my new to me (and the truck) cab put on yesterday, Easter Sun.
    Clutch and trans all put back together and adjusted Sat. the day before .

    Need the paint the entire truck back to the old dark green, not sure where to find that, but I'm betting the info is in here, somewhere ...

    Here's a few pics, hope I'm not hogging the thread up to much with my mundane ongoings .

    VR....Thanks for posting up. Lots of people use Behr house paint over red primer. I'd consider the Rustoleum camo rattle cans to work on smaller areas and is an oil base. I prefer an oil based paint to seal the primer. I notice eventually the acrylic latex shows rust getting going.

    Maybe you could start a build thread. It helps you to document your progress if you use SS that way.

    Gillespie paint is another good paint, matches factory paint the best, this is either online order, or sometimes at local military shows.

    I picked up Queen Lola from storage today. She had been sitting for 6 months and I did not start her up once this winter (a first; time did not permit). Battery disconnect on, accessory switch on, instant strong buzzer. Start button; 3 second crank and she fired right up.

    I took her on an 80 mile (120 km) round trip to stretch her ...legs? ....wheels? and she seemed to enjoy it. I made sure the drive train got thoroughly heat soaked. No spurting oil anywhere. A few of the usual seeps. I notice that after about an hour of driving everything seems to loosen up and she feels so much smoother. Maybe that is all BS and it is my body becoming numb, my brain woozy from the hot air blowing into the cab and my ears deaf and I no longer notice half of what's going on.

    Today I was in that weird mood where I could have just continued driving...somewhere...anywhere...for hours...for a day or two. Alas, I work tomorrow, so no-go.

    I installed a gun mount in the cab, and replaced the exhaust stack.

    The gun mount is great for holding drink cups, too!

    I pulled a master cylinder on my forest service deuce and a half, rebuilt it, and reinstalled it. It's now a 3 bolt master cylinder... good gravy that last bolt was difficult to get. I'll tell the next owner and let him reinstall that last bolt if he really wants to.

    Replaced a section of rusted brake line.

    Refilled and bled the brakes.

    She starts and stops now. First time that vehicle moved under it's own power since 2011, probably (that was the last year of registration the A&M Forest Service had on it).
