Looks real good. I'm soon dragging home a 50 F1, I might have a couple truck questions for you later.

I'm hardly any expert but I'd help out if I can. I'm sure all the guys on the barn would like to see your project.

Art, here's an easy truck question. I've taken some pictures of the F1 over where it lives now. How many actual pieces go between this crossmember and the 3 speed I have here on my bench? Looked around for illustrations and it isn't clear yet, can't find a good picture.

Now in that picture it likes that has been welded on by somebody?

Best picture yet. So there is only on piece I need to acquire? Has a bunch of rubber on it? I've seen those for sale.

Very cool Art! That thing really does shift nicely and the steering looks effortless and straight. Congrats on a great job and thanks for that 4 speed. I'm piecing together a tonner PU and will be installing that tranny over the winter. It was fun to meet you and see your collection.

I'm getting there, slow but sure. I saw that you were out to the tractor/steam show, I would've stopped and said hello but we were in the middle of moving and didn't make it this year. I love that old machinery.

I'm glad you can use that crash-box, I would've hated to see it go to the scrap pile. BTW, I've got a pretty nice looking 11 inch disk and pressure plate I wont use, it's yours if you want it?

Was Orcas hit with all the nasty smoke?
