Hope so. If you were here in AZ. you'd have to tell them a real innocent meaning.

Hey Jeff.. Yesterday I uncovered some part numbers while wire-wheeling the driveshaft... C8TA-4xx2-Fx.

I'd like to repaint the numbers after it's cleaned up but can't make out the characters in "x" above. Can I get some help from your microfiche? Thanks!

...70 F100 longbed 360FE/NP435/Ford 9-inch with a two-piece driveshaft.

Awesome. Thanks! That must be the one.. .YOU'RE THE BEST! I'd visit your parts department any day of the week.

Btw, I might be ordering another one of those late model spoilers for my 71 F250... this time the 8-inch deep version... Gotta get the hubcaps done first.

Shadetree Electrolysis Vat

My 30-gallon setup can handle brake drums, rotors, and spindles but it can't handle a driveshaft. It's time to improvise!

Some old fence boards, masonry units, and scrap plastic sheeting and temporary vat is borne. Howz about that?! After a short bucket brigade from the setup, it holds about 10 gallons of solution. We've been having some very rare summer showers so the charger is under a little hut.

The driveshaft is slowly cooking away as indicated by the bubbles. The yoke came out great and is under a coat of primer already.

I just might have to build a good one to handle radius arms.

'Came home from work to find that the driveshaft was done cooking. Yay! Scraped off the remaining grit and black scale with a wire brush, Scotchbrite pad, and then washed off the residue with dishsoap and water. Dried it off, hung it from the painting tree, and gave it three coats (one dry and two wet) of etching primer. It'll get painted and U-joints installed this weekend. I found a free stencil font at 1001fonts.com that which closely matches the original stencil. It's called "Boston Traffic".

The temporary vat was disassembled and most of the solution returned to the permanent vat. EZ. The iron-rich solution is good for your plants.

Printed the PN, hand-cut a stencil, and re-shot the driveshaft PN.. no yellow spray paint on hand so an epoxy appliance white had to do. It's probably just as sloppy as the Milpitas workers did back in the day. The driveshaft is painted cast iron grey to break up the blackness of the suspension.

BAM! This is my 10,000th post. Onward!

Not much work on the LBB lately... I'm tired to seeing the yard tractor project in my yard and have been working on it so it can go back to its owner. It's really coming together. The "reveal" is a couple of weeks away!

Lo-Buck Tractor Project Update (from Post #350, Pg. 24)

'Finally got around to shooting the engine cover, foot plates, and a touch-up coat on one cowl cuz I wet-sanded through. Assembled it this evening.

It's Ace Hardware Signal Orange (Rustoleum) through a Harbor Freight HVLP. If there is any trick, it's to thin the paint by about 25 percent. This stuff dries soooo slooowly that the first coat is a light fog that sits for about 15 minutes to tack up, then 15 minutes between coats. .. that's in 80° to 85° temperature. Longer if you've got high humidity. Follow these steps and you'll be rewarded with no sags or runs!

'gotta finish up the electrical, build the cooler rack, and install the seat.

.. then it's back to the LBB. I did install new U-joints and reassemble the driveshaft.

'had to finish this project before getting back on the LBB. It has been parked in my yard and leers at me whenever I come or leave home.

It is DONE.

Is there a mower deck on that? Or are you moving airplanes? Incredible work, so clean.
