Notice the pudding in the radiator? That was after three coolant filters. It was dirty!
I didn't have any trouble with it but from the looks of it the last person to put one on had hell and bent the crap out of lower hose Port. That why I've got a leak, they were a little rough.Don't you just love messing with that lower radiator hose!
I saw the damage in your picture. It takes some patience and the correct length hose.I didn't have any trouble with it but from the looks of it the last person to put one on had hell and bent the crap out of lower hose Port. That why I've got a leak, they were a little rough.

Mike, if possible try to stay away from the New Star brake shoes, they're made in China. Some of the linings are real thick and that can make it hard to install the brake drum, even with the adjusters turned all the way down. Here's a pic of the good GI brake shoes, they're getting hard to find.I’ve got a wheel cylinder on my center axel that is not working. The passenger side breaks were dragging. So this week I got both break drums off that axel and took them to my local NAPA (which also has a machine shop). They turned the drums for me (only took 18/1000 off) and charged $20 per drum. I plan to put everything back together with new wheel cylinders and break shoes.
SC, your handle is a bit different from mine. My truck is 71/72 but the winch came off another truck. I purchased the winch, don't know what year it is, complete from the mid west, the frame had been blow torched at the radiator and the winch, bumper, PTO, and drive shaft all arrived strapped to a pallet. It was real rusty and took about a week just to get the long bolts through the bumper, PB Blasted, and beat out of the assembly, with a hammer and drift, then a year to get the PTO and Winch rebuilt. The drive shaft and u-joints were brand new.Got a few more things done...cleaned up the paint overspray off on all the glass/windows & also got the winch engage bolt/spring installed. The one on the truck was bent all to hell. Now that its getting warmer Ill have a ton of update...
