Had a bit of snow/rain today, but not for long.

Picked up some new parts. With the current economical situation in my wallet. it took some time to collect a few extra bucks to buy these.

A brand new rebuilt pair of rear brake calipers for an 88 Lincoln mark 7 LSC.

They are rebuilt units to replace what I picked up cheap when I built the crawler.

A few mods and a couple more parts, and I can get the steering fixed up finally.

I got it moved over to where I can work on it, without too much interference with the other work I have to get done. I plan to break the tracks this weekend, after I get all the new steel stored away..

 

I have a neighbor that wants his drive way leveled, but i think I'll want a rear blade attachment for that, since I need to pull hard away from the house, and I don't think I can back blade it properly with my front blade.

 

I'll try it though.

 

With the new job at the new lower wage, (HAPPY TO BE WORKING) , things are going a bit slower in the shop

I did some dirt pushing the other day.

 

Was a good second test run of the crawler.

The front work light brackets broke almost immediately, just cheap brackets.

The air filter latch failed soon after. Probably just a bad spot weld

and the hood mounting tab broke on the custom built ( By previous owner) SS grill.

 

It still needs work on the steering and slowing down the hydraulics. I'm going to have to put an orifice in the supply line to the hydraulic valves, and i'm torn between hydraulic brakes of the power beyond port, or a couple of motorcycle master cylinders.

 

It seems to have plenty of pushing power.
