I've had this 1772 for a year now and I'm finally doing some work on it , it's in nice shape overall, but I wanted to address some issues it has, driveline etc. Here's a before.

First thing to do is give it a good bath with the steamer.

Got the little diesel pulled.

All ready for a little work!

Some goodies, the new driveline!

Got the input shaft drilled and tapped and the adapter installed.

CV mounted on the engine, sure looks a lot better than the Flex Disc joints.

A little clean up/ paint on the frame.

Well I got a lot done this week, straightened out the back corner of the fender and fixed the cracks/reinforced the two back bolt holes under the seat. I also fixed and reinforced the spring holes on the side panels. Then I got busy cleaning up and painting everything, think it came out out pretty good:beerchug: Just waiting for my seat , decals, and I found a 500 CCA battery that will fit in it.:beerchug: Oh, I have to get those front tires on too. Here are a few update pics.

Here's the battery, it's a YUASA GYZ32HL.

I just about have it finished! Just waiting for the decals from maple hunter. I found a wiring "fix" on the light switch wires and fixed it properly, now my lights work again!
