    Actually, neither,...

    I do know of a specialised RR mechanic.

    Being on a RR forum I get to know who knows their sh!t plus have access to parts both here and from around the world (if needed)

    Like here, I have the complete RR service manuals plus access to people who know I can call on for any info I don't have.

    But a RR dose'nt require a lot of mechanical training outside of normal requirements.

    Is that a DC-3 (pic #4)?!

    I think I read somewhere there are a few still flying (South America, and Alaska).

    What's the story on that one?

    DSC_0491.jpg Back to deuce stuff Brother Ahab. Front bumper medium tow bar mount, for those of us who have orthopedic limitations. I keep the 1" tow bar feet in the truck tool box. None of the parts used here (axle clamps & tow bar) need to be modified for this application. This will also work on trucks WO/W.

    I know that ford use to obsolete parts faster then others back in the day=davidb56;2246189]@ pitpawten......Concentrate on the drive train now, and then the cosmetics later. If I didn't have my Deuce last week, I'd be USCWAP. I have a F350 4x4 snowplow truck with a 460 engine that I am waiting for parts this week after a complete rebuild, and the weather is turning to ^^^^. I have a Ford super duty flatbed for fire wood that had bad fuel in the rear tank and clogged my filters in the middle of getting winter wood, so I had to finish up with the Deuce. Its a capable work horse back up vehicle that can plow, haul, a go places theres cant. BTW the auto industry doesn't support all vehicle parts after 20 years old, so I am converting my 460 EFI over to Carb and HEI ignition. Parts for the Deuce seem to be no more difficult to get than a 1994 Ford EFI with a now obsolete ECM.[/QUOTE]

    Is that what I understand you did here, dmetalmiki?
    Yes, I rewired it TWICE! But glasses off..too far, Glasses on too near!
    After the third time and blowing fuses and wires..I gave up as I was (seeing double!)m and wiring slots incorrectly.
    Today yet again, I started from scratch.
    Ended up with about 100 yards of wire on the floor.
    Rewired the dash panel I made and fitted new switches.
    Removing and replacing that TOP switch (Green arrow with*),, Was the MOST ridiculously difficult switch I have ever had the misfortune to try and remove then replace with a new one!. It took me 2 Hours!.
    Phew, the Vehicle is 'back to standard'.
    Well I say standard..The lights ALL work correctly..So do the top lights, Emergency beacons Rear emergency spot lamps,and top strobes!.
    Tomorrow..AGHHH! Attempt (Yet again!)..to wire the headlamps to Sequential, alternate, AND simultaneous flash sequences.
    Yeah..'Brain teaser', (Or R.A.F.), Intelligence TEST!
    We will see...(Fire extinguishers and wire cutters at the ready!. I WILL report. (And),
    I WILL Succeed! (NOT Suck Seed!).

    Thanks for throwing me the Life Ring, Brother Tracer!

    Those chain clamps (or whatever they're called), are some serious fine pieces of heavy-duty hardware. Where did you find those?!

    Another day in the woods.

    Need to figure out this sprag transfer case engagement soon before I pull my hair out lol. Pulling a loaded dump trailer uphill, my rears will spin long enough (we're talking minutes) for me to think all is lost before the transfer sporadically engages the front axle and pulls us over the hill.

    After browsing many helpful posts, I've got a good idea on where to start. Just have to find the time to do so.20191022_182551.jpg

    Thanks for the pic, 92ramaro.

    It looks like you work that Deuce, good and hard.

    That's what they "like", don't you think?!
