    Finally got the engine out and it's mostly apart now just having a heck of a time getting the exhaust and intake manifold off of it. Front brakes are also done with the exception of the brake lines.

    One of the many reasons the entire brake system is getting redone kind of eerie that's all there is to stop this big of a truck.

    I'll be honest, I forgot I made this post. I have gotten a lot done tho since I've been gone. Engine is done and I'm just waiting on the new clutch kit to arrive so I can put it back in and I bought six new tires for it. This is biggest reason I haven't been dealing in bikes as much as I usually do I've dumped over 3k into this thing in past couple months, ouch.

    I also got the windshield frame out and taken apart to put new glass in it and I only got stuck once by a microscopic piece of glass.

    Even found a period correct flare set complete with the flags for $5 at a flea market for the truck.
