    Thank you sir. I need a spare transmission as my first and reverse. And opposing gear have chunks missing. Keeping it clean and flushed out till it grenades on me. I saw you have one available but I can't drive to Florida anytime soon.

    Mines got one of those. Works great. Not too worried about theft though. I've left her running in several parking lots for 20-45 min and no problems yet. Let alone someone trying to start her from scratch.

    Took my deuce out to the department chilli supper on sunday. Hauled all the gear. Fixed the battery problem from last week and plumbed the new horn in backwards so also had to fix that.

    Nope pretty much all stock. Didn't say I was running full speed in 5th. Just really can't feel the heavyness of the load. My deuce dump truck I can feel about any load I put on it. This one is just smooth.

    I think if it started its life as a deuce and you can still see it, it counts. Though I'm a little biased as time goes on and I mod mine more and more away from stock.
    Not so much a signature as a cry for help.

    well the previous owner had installed a blade style battery disconnect on the negative terminal of one of the batteries which was great until it melted through in archdale and blue flames when I went to start the deuce a couple of weeks ago to show some friends

    So I picked up a very similar blade style disconnect from AutoZone today put it on cleaned up all the terminals while I was at it and brightened up the ends of the cables on the wire wheel.

    20191019_144255.jpg

    Got it all put back together and it wouldn't start realizing that the batteries are too low they can kick the solenoid but not enough choose to actually turn the starter is my diagnosis

    the looks like a couple of group 31 batteries are in order I almost went to Tractor Supply to pick some up but they only had one in stock figure I'll save for trip for when we have both

    I've also got this spare plastic battery box that I pulled off a juice at tnj Murray which I'm going to install when I get my new batteries I'll try and post some pics when I get done

    It was February when I bought this so the fact that it seems like I only ever work on it in cold weather is fitting
