Brung the deuce home a few weeks ago. Took off work this past week to get some stuff done to her. The wife named her Mary on the way home with her. She had named the previous m51a1 Myrtle. Replaced the master cylinder, soft lines, wheel cylinders and adjusted the brakes. Serviced the wheel bearings which were new but severely lacking on grease quantity. Greased and lubed everything. Did spin on fuel and oil filters, replaced all the poly fuel lines and changed the oil. New led headlights. Got the dump bed kit 98% done. Still have to cut out some guide plates. Would like to check my dump angle but don’t wanna unload the wheels and tires in the bed. Got a fuel pump, air filter, king pin bushings, seat covers and shift boot covers coming. In a couple months I have some rust to fix and a new paint job. Thanks for answering all my questions this past week.

Found myself spending too much time staring at Facebook and wondering what is wrong with people so I got rid off it lol. Still miss it for some of the groups and market place though.
I've pondered this alot lately. The truck is looking excellent. PM is a good thing.

Nice job. Hinges look great too. Im considering adding a 12vdc alternator on mine to charge my pump battery. Is the hydraulic pump motor 12 or 24vdc?

WOW, You're very productive! I've had mine for ~8 years and haven't done 1/2 of your "To Do List"... :ROFLMAO: Maybe I should retire 30 years early...

Trying to get all my to do’s done before it’s too nice outside. Slacked off on my fishing and hunting the last couple years, been building a house. And I’d like to get back to it.
