1971 Series 2a
« on: October 15, 2017, 08:47:10 PM »
Pulled the trigger today...
This truck has been 5 min away (and in the same position) since I’ve lived in Rochester.
Moving it will be a chore...

Bulkhead removed last night.. need to figure out how I'm going to pull the drivetrain.
chassis didn't make it far enough back into the garage... chain fall fail..

hook chain fall to motor to pull, lift chassis up by it and let slide / roll back, with jack stands/dollies under rear. 

re position front supports, unbolt motor, pull motor

took some spray 9 and water to the body tub sides..
if I can clean up the trim without removing or dipping, this might be the way to go..

New footwells and some general cleanup on the bulkhead completed..  almost ready for its hot zinc bath...
got some old snows mounted on stock rims for rollers.
New parabolic (tapered leaf) springs ordered and on the way

Having a bitch of a time with the rear axle..
drum set screws frozen, drum frozen on hub flange.. BFH and 30 min of whacking didn't do much...

project patina underway...
