    New custom fabricated license plate bracket on grille/brush guard. Other than that, not a dang thing.

    This week we pulled the entire front axel from under a M816. We stripped it all down and determined that everything except the differential was toast. A used front axel was bought and reinstalled and we were running sunday afternoon. We then used the crane to finish removing the cab and bed from a deuce that we will be bobbing this week. How is that for a weeks work from an old dilapidated guy and an energetic young guy?

    Today I took a look at my tach-o- graph. The tach wasn't working right. I pulled the unit out and spun the tach pickup with a drill. Appears the unit is working properly. I think the problem is the tach cable. Anyone know if the tach cable is the same between a 818 with a tachograph, and a other 8 series with a standard tach?

    I'd take the tach out and have a real good look at the back where the tach cable goes in. Mine died on me but would work on a drill seems the drill didn't turn it with a enough torque to make it slip inside the gear on the tach

    Saturday I installed a reversing light and back up alarm. See the whole story below...

    Sunday I installed three B/N seat belts, one driver and two companion, and associated hardware to specification.
