I'd like the journal boxes for 67's trucks to be cleared of gunk.  Followed by the other metal truck components.  I've conveyed to Mike the details of the job, and asked him to look for volunteers like Jay Barta, or others who don't mind some general work.

See ya

While I was at it, I replaced the lower radiator hose and fan belt. The belt proved to be a bit of a challenge. I had to remove the hydraulic pump that mounts to the front of the motor to get the belt off. It was an original belt, with a Case number, so it served it's time, 43+ years.

Also, I fixed a bolt that had broken off in the alternator, and repaired the wire to the headlights, because it had rubbed through.

After only 43 years on the belt, I would contact Case to inquire about a warranty replacement as it should have lasted at least 50 years.

None of us has a belt that has lasted that long. Grin

Well the belt was still whole, so I tagged it and hung it on the wall.

Well, I still wear a belt I've had since high school, although not in the same hole. That was 1965. You do the math!
