Fixer UPer
« Reply #75 on: September 18, 2020, 07:52:09 PM »
First tank. It’s 100 out of an RV. Three fill/vent ports, each side and the thin end.

Hoping to use this for gasoline and get a 275 fuel oil tank for diesel.

A few things need to get lost before plowing season, or at least move. Popup is nearly empty. About time to strip that sucker.

Spent hours stacking. Hands hurt a bit from no power steering. Men were men in 1968, I guess?

Very nearly ready to bring in the backhoe.
May have some shelves leftover for Beetle or camper parts. Almost tome to lose racecars in the hauler for winter too, I don’t think joe is getting worked on as far as kitchen/bath now, and I’m betting against a California trip at this point...

I need to come get those posts soon, but my little trailer is full of stuff waiting to be unloaded at barn.  Which will hopefully be next weekend as we are working on prepossession this week.

This lifting device helped unload the new lifting device. Time for a new thread.

Trailer out from under the hoe, in the shop. No carnage. Accidentally had the camera in that area not recording (since it does t see anything interesting typically - not in its final location) so missed my sketchiness. Had to move the trailer with the hoe halfway unloaded and had to counterweight the tongue heavily. 7/10 sketchy. Unstrapped engine 10’ in air on stacked pallets.

The Clark is a good traction motor. I love my quick hitch. It’s almost not in the way of forks, and for many quick normal things the forks maybe won’t interfere with trailer moves. Moving a dead vehicle with the lunette ring I have, forks would always be in the way.

Stuck it in the yard moving trailers earlier this week. Second time i did that. Jacked it up in situ and self recovered. True offroad status. Chains are sized for the John Deere. Slightly too big for the forklift but with a couple short bungees they could stay on for winter if needed

Look for some sections of old warehouse mezzanine to use as traction mats. 
That’s what we do at the warehouses when we need to run to storage trailers...
I never wanted a red car.. always thought they were tacky and common...
I now have 4 very not common cars and they are all red.. :o
