I didn't get much wrench time in this week until today. However during the week I did manage to collect some needed pieces. I found a swather near by that had the rad I needed, I also scored the hood and tin as well as regulator, lights and few other odds and ends. I had to buy a new fuel pump. At work we have a slip tank with desiel that has been sitting for 5 or 6 years. I brought home a couple of jerry cans of it, and a empty plastic 45 gal drum. Drum is for used oil.
Last night I installed the fuel pump and cleaned up the new rad and mounted it. Today I finnished installing the rad put water in, I have to make different rear engine mounts now. I drained all the gear box oils. I filled the gear boxs with the old desiel to rinse/clean out the gear boxes. The oil was pretty murky. This thing is THIRSTY. it took 10 gallons to fill the gear boxes to the add line. I discovered the gear boxs leak. Darn.
I removed the seat and took off the right fender. The fender was kind of hanging and needs to be fixed up, the seat needs repair too. A cushion would be nice. LOL. Once I had the fender and seat off I can see a lot of the the gear boxes much better. As I was cleaning 65 year old gunk up looking to see were the leak is. I discovered that some of the bolts are loose and looks like couple are missing connecting the transmission to the differential. As I tighened some of the bolts up the leak slowed down considerably. Now I need to remove the other fender so I can get at that side and tighten things up. I have to do a lot more cleaning and checking it out. looks like I got lucky there as it looks like its only loose missing bolts.
One photo is from the back with seat and fender removed.
The photos with the wrenchs are showing the bolts that are loose.
Santa can I please have a pressure washer for Christmas??
