Hey All,
Believe it or not, it can finally be said that a drivable '41 Detroit Diesel powered Dodge flatbed exists! Currently with about 50 miles on it, the Dodge was run through our local annual parade this early May and performed flawlessly. The only issue I did have with it was something caused the brake booster to hold the brakes on while I was backing it into it's parking spot in the barn after the show. I noticed it seemed balky while trying to move it in reverse, and once parked and shut down, the stop lights remained lit even after I got out of the cab. It eventually cleared itself and nothing obvious could be found, but I'll keep an eye on it. I did manage to mount the GoPro camera on the cab during the parade, so there is a new video on my YouTube channel. The next things to be done will be procuring the wood for the bed stakes, and the replacement of the two trashed tires (now installed on the rear axle).
