I always thought the old Ford should have some sides on the deck so I took a look around the farm, found a few old fence rails and a few hours later, Boom! We have stakesides on the F1! Should have these done in the next day or so!
Happiness is a fully rebuilt rare original Ford carb!!! New plunger, needle, gaskets, acid washed etc. Putting her back on the truck now!… Doesn’t help that after sorting the hard lines and getting it plumbed I excitedly go to start the truck and have a flat battery! Ha!
