You sir..... are a master.

After seeing all you have done, I'm sure the startup will go smoothly.

Not a master, I just keep re-doing things till I get them the way I want them. I also have good friends to lean on when needed.

I am editing the video now and will have it up this week. You can't show the faces of Firemen and EMTs, who knew

Mike,
Looks amazing! What do you use to put the sharp bends on the Aluminum box for the air filter housing? Do you have a sheet metal brake?
I need to build similar.
thank you!

Doug

I bought the smallest Woodward Fab 3in1 machine. It does a good job but the 12'' width is very limiting, just couldn't justify the cost of the larger ones.

Well I finally got the video done. Belle's first start went really well. Did have one problem with the March accessory drive system. This is the forth March system I have installed and the third one there has been a problem with. I did get it sorted out though and everything is working great. I had to take some of the front back off so everything could be painted and the small details done.

I watched the video - Awesome!
MORE COW BELL for Belle came to mind.
Really great when you turn the key, push the button and it comes to life on the first try.

Did some work on the truck today and decided to install the new wheels! So old ones are available if someone can use them. I will put them on the for sale board.



Old tires and wheels. 215/75/15 5X5.5 rims
