It had a terrible chatter on take off. It now is smooth as silk when I let the clutch out. I have it in Florida where I think it might stay for a few years. I had so much more fun with it down here.
Did you paint your truck yourself or have a painter do it? It is very sharp and so smooth looking. I had mine painted but hope to do my next one myself with a lot of practice. Good luck, Steve
Thanks Steve. A friend of mine who owns a body shop did the body work and painting of it. He did a much better job than I had anticipated, making it more of a show truck. Where in Florida do you have yours? I had plans of being in Florida next winter. I have a 52 flathead that was rebuilt and does not have any modifications. I am really happy with the way it runs and sounds. I hope to be able to put it in gear no later than July. I still have to buy tires for it ($$$) and am starting to shop for them now.

We are in Punta Gorda, Fl. during the winter. I brought mine down in January and had planned to take it back to Middletown, Ohio. I have enjoyed it more down here because they have 15 to 25 shows a week down here. I only go to a couple a week but it's nice to have choices. We are about 25 miles North of Fort Myers. One day I would like to see your truck after it is finished. I have pictures on my home page if you have not seen my truck. Take care and good luck, Steve

Excellent! Thanks so much. Are you going up to Jefferson, WI this weekend for the big swap meet? I'm going to go on Sunday since it is supposed to be cold and rainy tomorrow.

I was thinking of catching up with BobJ and his son there tomorrow but it is going to be rainy and bad? So I am going to go look at a fire truck I mite buy! And I need to get a big check from the job down the street from you so I can get started on it. Sunday I am helping a buddy work on his deck.
