Fine enough for the space shuttle!  Keep us posted on the intricacies of the big bore White flatheads.

It's been a few months since we have made a progress report. Despite this oppressive Florida heat we are getting a little work done. We are still in the disassembly stage and reached a major milestone getting the cab removed. With all the rigging in place I only had a few inches of "up" to lift the cab off of the frame. which presented a few challenges. There is a plate behind the cab for the valve that the trailer air hoses connect to, it was welded to the rear cab mount at an angle and looked like hell. There was no way the cab would clear it so I cut it of. I would have cut it off eventually anyway.

I took the steering wheel off shortly after this photo was taken.

Not much up in the rigging.

Here is that ugly plate I was talking about. It's gone now.

With my limited lifting capability the biggest problems I had were clearing the steering column and to some extent, the pedals. The pedals were not a big deal, I just had to raise the front of the cab a little to clear them. The steering column was a different story. I thought if I took all the bolts out that mount the steering box to the frame and disconnect the drag link the steeling column would lay down enough to clear the toe boards. That didn't work very well as the rectangular steering box mount hit the inside of the frame rail and would not allow the column to lay down far enough. I was working by myself so I got up behind the cab, grabbed onto the air hose hanger bolted to the back of the cab, and pulled the rear of the cab down while rolling it backwards. It wasn't pretty but it raised the front of the cab enough to clear the steering column without doing any damage. For now the cab will remain on the frame rails until I can remove the engine.

I understand you're headed this way to fix the 56 kw clutch. I think we should repaint it at the same time. I have what we need.

It's contingent on Ken getting his floor poured and getting some heat in his building. I'm still trying to figure put why a guy from Florida would go to a snow bound Connecticut in the middle of the winter. I think Ken should bring his trucks down here !

I stripped most everything out of the cab. I just left the door latches, I will probably sell it to a rat rodder and he might need them. The dashboard is actually pretty clean, there are no extra holes in it.

I did eventually sell this rusted out cab to a rat rodder. A friend sent me these pictures. The guy did a real nice job with the cab, especially the home made dashboard and floors.

More progress. The aprons and running boards have been removed. The aprons are in pretty good shape except for several cracks that will need to be welded up. There are no rusted out areas. One issue that was revealed is that the passenger side cab mount/running board support had two sheared rivets and is very loose with just one rivet holding it. I will probably replace the rivets with bolts.
