Correct...25 posts and 30 days (snow will be gone by then).
I'm going to go have coffee at the local hardware store (it's free there...) and see if Ed will take the info and pass it along. Then I can just post the name of the hardware store and all will procede.
Hope that doesn't go against forum rules...I like this site and don't want to be kicked off.
Well how are things in Osceola? Pretty town...used to ride MC over there when I was younger.
Stopped at C&E Hardware Hank and spoke to Cheri and Ed ....gave em my email address. If you are over that way ever (again...coffee is free), stop in. Right by the Edina Realty bldg off 96 at Churchill. MapQuest will give you the info you need.
With any luck, Ed will have his "perfect" 1978 Ford Van back from the body shop so you can look that over too. A deer "kissed" it...but it is getting fixed.
I did talk to Warren the baker...he's on 10-12 hours a day now so if home he's trying to rest. He said the plow used to be on a 1987 Ford, was the type that had the engine mount pump (has pump), and was a 7 foot Fisher...looks good as I recall...paint isn't shiny anymore but new paint is cheap. There are several sellers of new Fisher decals on Ebay I noticed.
I think he will want somewhere in the neighborhood of $800 for everything...see what you can do with that.
Oh...and get it to warm just a bit...I need new manifold gaskets on my 300 and I will be doing the work outside.
