    Despite having those two toms walking the area I’m in I never got out turkey hunting. Opening morning I heard a close by shot and didn’t see those birds again.

    I’ve been head deep in wrench turning. Replaced both cylinder heads on the gm 6.2. Replaced brake and fuel lines, installed the rear ends out of the crashed truck, and stripped the interior.

    I ordered a driveshaft for the Ford earlier in the week. That wasn’t cheap!

    Removed the windshield from the F350 to repair rust around the windshield and fix a leaking windshield problem. Weak areas were cut out and replaced with patches. Patches were created from a fender of the crashed truck. Some plastic filler was laid over the welded patches, along with a few coats of primer and spot putty. A few coats of left over black acrylic enamel from the 87 project were laid over the primer.

    Next will be a professional windshield installation.

    I’m praying the fur prices increase for the coming season.

    I haven’t seen any polts. Though I haven’t seen many adult turkeys either which makes me suspect their on nest.

    Default Heavy Iron Creativity

    Iíve been searching for a gooseneck hitch for a cab & chassis frame and learned no company makes a bolt on application. There where some manufacturers in the past but they discontinued the hitch. All hitches now require modification of factory bases or building a base.

    I picked up a 10Ē steel beam along with my concrete saw and turned a scrap piece of steel into a base! A 1/2 gallon of gas, a old cut off saw, ear muffs, and determination made for an acceptable product.

    I purchased my 2019 deer tags/licenses two weeks ago. I have 4 tags to fill and should be a hunting fool. Four tags can be a taxing to fill though I’ll give it my best.

    I’ve continued working on the 7.3 Powerstroke. It has been bodywork and some wrench turning. This weeks evenings were re-sealing the high pressure oil pump and rebuilding the turbo. Amazing how much money a seal kit and determination can save. I started the truck this evening and it runs well.

    The paint came out excellent using a $20 gravity feed spray gun and a $150 of paint ordered online. I’ll be upgrading the spray gun. A 3” pattern is taxing.
