    I'm eager to know what the nut you lost is torqued to. I eventually need to rebuild my PTO.

    How did you clean your PTO case? Looks better than mine.

    Started cleaning up one of the hubs that I got from Wheelie. sanded as much of the defects as my attention span can take. Still some work to do around the bolt holes.

    I got all the pc's of one of the hubs cleaned up and ready to assemble

    I put all these bearings in first then struggled to get the turn dial aligned properly. I found out it is easier to leave these out then align everything. Then just slip them in after.

    All finished, and it even works :)

    I also got the winch back together. Now I have to pick up the metal to get the mount for it made

    Almost a roller, still looking for those brake adjusters to get the other wheel on

    Started running the brake lines today. Picked up lengths at the auto part store so I can bend my own. The brake lines are 3/16" and made of copper coated nickel.

    Nice looking truck. I have almost the exact truck aside from a small white stripe at the bottom. The spare will bolt on the rear, just not the front. Looks like a factory Ford wheel probably. If worse came to worse and you were stranded with a front flat, you could move one of the big hole rears up and put the spare on the back....Or just find a big hole 5 on 5.5 wheel to match the rest. =)

    Did some brake line work today. Bled the MC right on the frame

    [​IMG]

    I know it's not exact but I think I got it pretty close to the way factory did it

    I used some fuel line to wrap the brake lines to keep from rubbing on the frame where it was close

    Got an hr in on it today. Installed the front u joints and got the drive shaft in. I found out the 45 degree grease fitting that came with the joints hit the pinion nut on the rear. Had to get a 90 degree for it to work. U joint to TC was fine

    I love the fuel line idea over brake line, did you cut the fuel line or just slide it over?

    Everything is looking good on it, I like how the Italians bleed brakes. I use a mason jar, convenient till you trip over it.
