The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Thumbs up red truck

we wondered why you weren't at the meeting, now we know guess you'll have to do 2 next week


SWEEEET


nice of him to give the truck to some one who will do something with her, so many times they just sit and rot away.


Later

I see a flatbed with ramps too. That truck is in too good of shape to cut it up, I'd leave it as a bigger ton job.

Yes guys, I'm pretty sure it'll stay a two ton. I wanted to end up with a thirty six to pull that trailer [in the picture] with old tractors on it or old cars or old trucks, but this was a surprize to me so I haven't dreamt up enough images yet of what I want.
Skull, I'm under the impression that you can't come to the meetings if you're a backslider, bad enough to be red in the face like me. I haven't even told you that I also brought home an old two cylinder John Deere and a pull-type swather. At the meeting there, would be a lot of gasping and some guys would even put their hand over their mouth, when I made my confession.

Anyway, back to our regularly scheduled program, the making of a half-ton '36 Ford.
I got my rebuilt motor [268 ci Mercury flathead] home but promptly went on holidays, so nothing happened for a while. Now I have got my flywheel lathed down smooth and tacked on the starter ring gear. Running a 6v starter on 12vs livens up the starting process a lot, but the downside is that the starter hits a little too hard and can work the ring gear off, so I tacked it on. I had bought new water pumps, but they were painted universal black so they got painted blue today. I also painted the thermostat housings and dipstick.
