lower part of vin plate completly gone to naked eye.  little spit and light on it you can see the stamped numbers and vague printing of serial number!

can you post a pic of your door side latch?  i think my 52 has 51 and back parts.  just cant seem to match them up.



im looking to replace the driver door latch, and both cab sides catches.    kits on ebay with everything for 100$ but my year lookup doesnt have the lock feature that i have

This thing has been neglected almost all year. Too long...

Rebuilt the carb a couple weeks ago.

Decided to address annoying exhaust issues like leaky flange and lack of muffler. Broke an exhaust stud. Pipe is swiss. Got a new "header" pipe bent and bought a new TSC tractor muffler. Ordered a flange donut and muffler strap. Drilled/tapped for new stud.

Also ordered a drag link rebuild kit.

Want to get some kind of bed built but won't be as nice as sMike's.

Goal is to put some more miles on it again before winter storage now that the weather is moderating.

Ha, I was going to sell 6 tires (4 mounted) but recontacted later in the day to rescind my offer. I've decided to act my age and drive an old slow truck.

Too much work right now to make major changes to this thing.

Removed 5 leaves from main pack and 2 from overload pack on each rear side. Should make a bit more tolerable on my kidneys.
