Hi GTT, I have been trying to not be annoying around here since besides mowing with the MF12G there has been no GT related news to report.

 

This little alteration made my life easier today and it's probably something all of you find obvious. It didn't dawn on me 'till today though---LOL! I got real tired of trying to figure out how to use my little chinese led worklight in oddball positions. It struck me to take that stupid base off of it and put a spring clamp in it's place.

 

Sorry the pics aren't GT related.

I use one of those free ones from HF with the magnet on the back most of the time.  Battery operated LED nice and bright.  Not an all position light but don't produce heat either.

Great Job!

Nice fix!

I'm on call at work and last night when I was going to get replies done the dang phone rang! So far so good tonight.

 

Is the clamp GMC engine orange?

Well from what I understand not until 1973 and this truck is a '70---LOL! GMC still painted their engines red then, even though the SBC was the normal engine. It was a carryover from the V-6 days. See pic of the engine going in this truck---

 

I use one of those free ones from HF with the magnet on the back most of the time.  Battery operated LED nice and bright.  Not an all position light but don't produce heat either.

Yes sir, I dig those little lights too and use them a lot. This one is a rechargeable LED so no heat with it either. It's quite a bit brighter than the HF ones.

 

Thanks again for the replies!
