Hey All,
Been a slow summer as far as work on the vehicles this year. Home ownership occasionally raises it's ugly head and requires money and time spent on non-hobby things. :( Done a few small things on the Dodge including replacing a slowly dying original alternator. I have finally started on building the stakes for the bed and that process is about 1/3 done. I'm pushing to get the remaining work done before the weather turns cold and (hopefully) wet in the coming weeks. Once the stakes are complete, stained and sealed, I'll call the Dodge project done for the time being, and start falling back and re-grouping the shop in preparation for a much overdue clutch and tranny job on the '35 Ford pick-up, this years planned winter project. I suspect that will require the engine to be pulled since I'm near sure the flywheel will have to come out and be resurfaced for the clutch. At least, this will give me the opportunity to go after some oil leaks, radiator leaks, and maybe even throwing a coat of paint on that bare engine block! Just a lot of catch up work that needs to be done in the meantime.
