Said every yard car vehicle owner ever . . .
Manual glow plug switch (momentary) installed. All it does is complete the circuit and completely reversible. I still have to diagnose the passenger alternator. I think It’s something to do with the gen 2 dash light.
Got my brackets made for my roof rack...tomorrow will be prime and paint.
Well, painted the rack, just cuz...
And any of you have a guess of what this is for?
Holes drilled, painted and ready to install...
Well my sub floor is in on my truck...
And I had to add some 'mood' lights!
So you've got the big 6 in your 109? Pretty rare! I used to maintain one of those for a friend. I've had a couple 88's over the years, but the frames rusted away to nothing. I still have the rear box off a '69 that doubles as a trailer.
Yes, the 6 cyl with the original Weslake head, quite rare. I do want a S2 or S1 80 or 88 at some point.
Fixed the charging system on the cucv. Cut off the side steps. Looking into stuffing 37’s on it so I have some suspension homework to do.
Welded up this old brush hog using my 40s hercules welder so i dint burn up my little mig.
I did the same thing to my truck. I have a mattress back there and camp right in the bed.
Got my con-ferr stickers, makes the rack complete.
I’ve had a small drip coming from the oil cooler on the cucv for a few weeks now and it finally turned into a fine stream. Being the tightwad I am, I went to the parts store, bought a couple 3/8 plugs, removed the oil cooler lines/adapters, put some thread sealer on the plugs, and screwed them in. Went on a 60 something mile drive and have no leaks and the engine hasn’t locked up so it’s a win.
You manually crank the motor on the welder to start it?
Yup it has a spot for an electric starter but its just a block off plate. It took a while to get to start reliably but now it starts ok. Its still not an easy task.
I took this pile of parts and stripped then refinished it. Took the mower off and now I am all set for snow.
Bought 5 hmmwv wheels and tires. Lets see if an old truck can self clearance like the 2a.
After a few hours and a dozen or so studs with the porta power thrown in just for fun
This is the finish( out of order)
Here it is after beating ,hammering and filler
My voltage regulator had a meltdown which also smoked the ammeter.
I replaced the VR and ammeter but found the battery cables were somewhat suspect. Then I looked at the headlight wires and decided they needed a cleanup. (fuse bypassed and old wiring) I also replaced the mismatched headlights with LED tractor lights. Then I wanted to separate the flashing light on the rear fender and put it on it's own switch. I noticed the radiator hoses were pretty weak. New hoses received. You know while in there - the radiator is really full of mud dobbers and just stuff. Removed and flushed. The seat is crap so . Bolts for everything are rusty crusty. Off to Ace Hardware. While I got all that stuff apart maybe I should paint a few things. You talk about project creep.....
This may take a day or two.
My wife scratched her head and said, "Didn't you drive that in the garage?"
That's pretty cool. Seems like anymore a shop would cut the side off and put on a new panel. I love the craftmanship. Great job!
