Cranked the fuel way up. Can now hover around 1200ish on a good hard pull. Doesnt stall out in second anymore when ya let the clutch out. Changed the belts, changed fuel filters. And put about 150 miles on her.

I flushed my cooling system and replaced all the hoses, belts and the cracked oil cooler cover. I also converted the primary fuel filter to spin on. No leaks :jumpin:

Started mine for the first time in a couple of weeks. Started as soon as I pushed the button. :-D Needed to take some pictures for the insurance renewal, this can't be good. :roll:

I drove the M211 50 feet and blew a brake line. the one from the master cylinder to the brake light switch. Made a new line and fixed it, went another foot and blew the line from the switch to the air pak. Decided I was not driving it that day. Fate was giving me a message, stay parked !

Took a fender off so I could patch a rust hole and repaint the entire fender. This will be my first attempt at welding a patch so I was practicing with a Mig welder on scrap metal last night.

Finished my brake/wheel seals/tire job. Changed fuel filters. Filled the fuel tank for an ungodly amount of cash...

Note to self: start looking for a WMO supply and build a filtering setup.

I went to start it last week and nada.. Batts were dead.. Could not get them to hold a charge enough to start it so I called a buddy of mine with an auto repair shop and was trying to find something to fit in the battery box at a telatively cheap price. Interstate refurbs would have required that I modify the box and re-do some cables. I found a guy that sold the square military batteries (US 6TMF) so I bought a pair from him. Had to fill with acid and trickle charge before use but they work great..

Other than that I got the new blinkers in from Eric's so I put them on the truck and wired them up. After that I drove it around my property......
