Are you having a seat made? Often, reupholsters can do stuff like that.

No, I bought an A&I brand seat. Thanks anyway!

The only thing that looks sweet so far, are the new parts that aren't rusty, or greasy, or dirty! I sure do look forward to really getting started on the restoration process!

Today, I started to remove the came shaft. Maybe tomorrow I can finish. I called our local CARQUEST, and the man I talked with said that he can bore, hone and clean (at least the inside) for $60-$65. I will probably go with them.

A couple of weeks ago, I degreased the front axle and the part of the front grill that I will use. My uncle is going to bore out the main pivot on the front axle and add grease fittings for all the pivot points on the axle. He will also get bushings for the axle (and maybe install them). I found a place in Wisconsin that supposedly has the seals for the hydraulic cylinder, and the repair kit for the hydraulic valve! I've got all the parts of the valve and cylinder pretty well clean (for some reason, the cylinder body seamed a little oily even after running it through the parts washer). I did finally get the valves removed from the engine!

Does it have a hairline crack?

I'm not sure. I suppose it's possible.

Clean it good & lightly coat it in something like flour or talcum powder.  If it is cracked or leaking, you'll know where soon enough.
