Thanks Bigstu

pulled the diff out today to finish welding it out , got half way and the frigin gas solenoid in my mig welder got stuck on , just put a new switch in a couple of months ago .
Oh well it has been very good , wish I had bought the 211 but it wasn't out yet when I got my 175 .
You can hook up a 1 LBS spool gun on the 211 and wire feed Aluminum , would be so nice to use for tacking stuff before tiging .







Pick up a new solenoid tomorrow , hope they have one !!!!!.

Got the Mig working , finished welding the diff out , and got the ends painted .
Next is fish plate the frame sides and weld anything I couldn't get at with the diff in the way .















I would like to get the box back on this weekend , need to make some spacer blocks to mount the box .
Wish 510 keeper lived around the corner .

Hey Phil

Looks like you have been busy changing things on your truck since the last time I saw it. I just finished putting a thermal king diesel in my 1948 Ferguson Tractor. Recently just went down to Washington to pick up a box for my 620 King cab project that I am working on now.

Hi life has been getting in the way , dug out my glass bead cabinet from my shed , it needed a new window and fresh media , so I got some pieces blasted and repainted .






Also made up some steel Brake lines m and got the parking brake bled .

Here is a little trick I came up with a few years ago , it's to clean up small parts like little brackets or bolts , you take a small plastic jar , this one is a peanut butter container , drill a hole to fit the nozzle of the gun and a few holes to let the media out , it seems to work very well .






the next thing is an old shop vac , drill a hole in the lid , put the hose in the lid and a filter on the exhaust side , this helps reduce the dust in the box to see better and helps keep the dust down in the shop , when the weather is better I set it up outside.



Getting ready to put the box back on !!!!!



got the parking brake all working , will install the cable now that I can see how it has to go to clear everything

That diff brake is awesome. Your ideas never cease to amaze me. Keep up the great work!
