M1009 donor axle parts

DSCF4519.jpgDSCF4520.jpgDSCF4521.jpgDSCF4522.jpgDSCF4523.jpgOf course it had to be raining when I needed to do a raid on my front axle pile. I have been tempted many times to just toss these axles in the scrap. Another vehicle will be saved from donor parts. And I opted to remove them. I had planned on torching the axle ends off from the pile. I thought even thou it is raining I could start a fire. All is well. Check out my HD hand truck. It has a pintle ring mounted for versatility. DSCF4436.jpgVery useful in all situations. Beats the pants out of carrying things.

Rick, I bet you keep your neighbors entertained on a regular basis. Nice rig; please post a photo with "you driving it" to entertain the rest of us.

Let's just say I fix everything they break. So they marvel at my inventions. Most little projects are built with discarded scrap and made to last.

Snow plows are all reattached and awaiting the looming snow that is in the forecast. Spring is soon here. I expected this. Let it SNOW. Still running 1 CUCV with no reverse. Not Warranted for backing up steep ramps loaded with salt and stone. I understand. It happens. No drive shafts or U joints this year.

I was in Lebanon yesterday and never saw a bit of snow.

The grass even looked green to me.

In and out before the storm!

Tis true. T'was the night before snow storm and all thru the yard. The plow trucks were waiting to plow thru the snow. But what to my wondering eyes should appear. 5 empty plow trucks no drivers were near. I sprung from my bed to see what had fallen and to my great surprise the river had swollen. No snow flakes had fallen the side walks were wet. I went back to bed and I really slept. Not my best poem.

Another form of entertainment? You may want to keep your day job on this one.

OK. Put them plows back on again. Just removed them all last week when it was 60* outside. Practice makes perfect. I even discovered an easier way to get the Boss plow on. Not as bad if it is properly removed. It seems that the stand was bent by a coworker and then left bent. Big NO NO. All of $35. to fix. That was easy. It is dumping on South Central Pennsylvania on the 2nd day of spring. Nuisance snow is what I like to call it. Brought the assembly line to a halt. Still snowing and 32* so it is possible to get some accumulation. Have a Great Day. Spring is here. It can only get better going forward. I just received a brand new F550 6 x 6. That means one of the CUCV's will be recycled. Maybe. Dry warm.

image1No GO in Snow.jpgplo.jpgThe usefulness of a 4WD in this weather. And oh yea if I were Mayor the schools would remain open. Save township money also. Just like garbage trucks with snow plows in the big cities. school-bus-2van.jpgHave a Great Day.

I bought my 1984 M1008 specifically for plowing. mounted a brand new Western Prodigy plow (self adjusting wings), rebuilt the transmission and transfer case, added a trans oil cooler, built a box to mount counterweight (900 lbs of rocks) as far rearward as possible, V-bar chains all around. Terrific plow truck; does everything I need to do to keep my 1 mile of road open all winter, plus some neighbors.

I was talking with the wife this morning about all the snow back east. I said I shouldn't complain about the rain out here as it could be worse !!!
