Ford F 250

Decided to strip the interior out and redo the floors. I figured I would just do it right and complete it all while I have a running inspected car to drive. I will be cutting out the half ass floor boards/ tin sheets that the PO put in and replacing with the correct ones that will be in later this week. Then I am going to be putting new carpet down too.

1952 John Deere Model M

Helped a buddy out yesterday. He had this for sale on my lawn a year ago. A guy paid him $500 to hold it so he could make payments. He never showed back up and several calls were made with no reply. He relisted it and had someone put a deposit on it but they couldn't get it running. That's where I come in. LOL Cleaned the nasty glass bowl, the copper fuel line that was plugged, and the carb that was packed with shit. He put a new battery in it and nothing...WTF. Pulled the cap and rotor off, cleaned both and the points too and BAM she fired right up. Man I love the sound of these old tractors. Air, Fuel and Spark pretty simple and it should run.

                    cab mount, leaky master cylinder, turn signal, and something else
                     I have had too much to drink to remember. Hahaha Good times.

Yard Sale Find

Pretty happy about this one. Vintage Miller Lite Open neon sign for the hefty sum of $3. I might sell it or add it to the pool table room. Not sure, I will have to see what I am offered for it.

F250 Passengers Side Cab Mount

Had to replace the cab mount and rubber on the 1976 F250 I just got a couple months ago. I bought the parts from NPD and they were great to deal with. They sent the parts right out, fast email with tracking and were here when quoted. The cab mount was HUGE, I had to cut lots off it but that just gave me enough extra metal to fix all the smaller holes i had without buying more steel. The cab mount rubbers are all 6 so I will be replacing the others later.

Yippee I love parts boxes.

The mount was friggin' huge.

Just a little rusted out. And this is after I jacked the cab up to get to the bolt.

Looks brandy new, the weld looks like shit but I was almost out of gas and it was spattering so just ignore it. Hahaha
