Looking good Chief!
Ya know I just saw a special...forget what it was of a guy who has made different thor's hammers....one would shock, one was filled with tungsten, one had an electromagnet so if energized it could not be picked up.The eye is instantly drawn to Mjolnir.
That is a guy from the Far East somewhere, has a bunch of green gold and is always tinkering with and rebuilding deuce engines. I've talked to him on the FB deuce group.This morning I was looking for cool M35 videos on youtube...because work is dead.
I found this cool video of a 465LDT running with only one head installed. I have seen other videos of other engines doing this...but this is the first time seeing one of our engines.
It's pretty wild to see the front 3 pistons doing their thing. Enjoy!
That turned out real nice. Need a pic at night with them wired up and turned on!!!I needed to fabricate brackets for the armoured double headlights I recently converted to all LED. While the single lights are ok to mount, there simply is not a good spot for the big, heavy double lights.
After doing what the signature of one of the members here suggests ("every repair job starts with staring at it like an imbecile") I decided on a mounting location.
I used a 12x12 in sheet of 1/4in steel to fab the brackets. Mind you, I am not a fabricator. I can barely weld. I have an angle grinder, a wimpy 110V stick welder with 5/64 electrodes and a drill press, that is about it.
In the process I learned that the two sides of the winch look symmetrical but are not. More fabbing!
Here are the brackets mounted:

I love the look...very sharp! The lights are not adjusted and not mounted; just sitting on the brackets. They are just above the bumper and do not obstruckt the headlights.

Now I have some wiring to do....but that is for another day.
lol yup I shared it on the FB group and recognized his profile picture as soon as he replied. He is a pretty cool dude.That is a guy from the Far East somewhere, has a bunch of green gold and is always tinkering with and rebuilding deuce engines. I've talked to him on the FB deuce group.
Super clean work!Mounted and wired up the lights. For now, they come on with the high beams. When the switches and diodes come in, I will add a LED flasher so I can use them as "emergency lights", wig-wagging, as well.
Blackout lights are hooked up as well.
