I now have an HD-12, courtesy of Scott (sascr). He let me buy it once he had taken off what he needed to make his HD-12 more complete, knowing I would end up putting in a diesel engine, so being 100% OE wasn't a big deal to me at all. VERY thankful to Scott for allowing me to own it!
No engine, as I told him to keep that too, as he could use it for parts. Quite rusty, but that can be changed in time. For now it will be all mechanical work, with anything towards looks coming at a much later date.
All I have done so far was cut the engine mount place loose. Someone who nothing at all about welding made a mess! But at least that made the engine mount come out much easier!
After milking we went to get some groceries, so I picked up a tube for one of the front tires that slowly goes down. She'll get rolled around a lot for a while, so I don't want to have to keep airing up this tire.
