Spent 12 hours puting the two together and into the frame. The clutch is all hooked up and adjusted. Get to put the Transfer Case and Drive Shafts in tomorrow. Still have parts to put on the engine but those are easy. Picture dose not do it justis because all the parts are painted shinny and clean no rust. Flash dose weird things to it at night on the black stuff. Mark H.

Lookin good Mark, Did you go through the engine? IM still waiting for warmer weather to thaw out my frozen water line so I can try out the pressure washer sand blaster on my 9N. This has been one long hard winter out here.

I rebuilt the Transmission and tranfer case along with a new clutch, presure plate, throw out bearing, re/surfaced flywheel and new universal joints. The engine has a new crank, cam, pistons, rods, rings, valves and was bored 60 over. It should be just about completely rebuilt truck like new when I'm done with it. I even have a new alum gas tank for it. I should sit down and start to add up the cost but I am afraid to! Mark H.

Yep, winter dragged on in central Mn too. Snowed every day they promised spring recently. Just yesterday was decent enough to replace the heater core on the van. And heaters are something that kinda come in handy in winter! (saved me a fortune in shopping bllls though - she didn't even want to go along :)

I was thinking of sticking in the Radiator in and taking it for a drive befor I put the body on just to test it out. Sure would be easy to fix something with the sheet metal off. Mark H.
