ya I will go that route if need be! only when wife isn't home :P trying to find out the best and reasonable cost glue to get. Most of the ones for brake lining require heating to cure/set....

Finally coming together, pressure plate springs need a good cleaning and inspecting but everything else (minus sourcing or finding a good replacement set of insulating washers for the pressure plate) complete this clutch package and it'll be awaiting install in the spring....

On a side note the finger bolts on the end of the pressure plate fingers are another unobtanium part..... I tried ordering some domed bolts but couldn't find any for under $7-8 a bolt. some simple 5/16-24 x 1" bolts put in the drill press and filed to round the heads made for a relatively easy replacement and seemed to do the exact same job as the originals. ( The original bolts had significant wear on their heads). Seems like a decent fix.

Finally got around to test fitting the winch that came with my patrol. I think the reason so many patrols don't have a winch is because the owners can't get the dang 29mm tow hook bolts out. What a workout....

Cable is pretty shot so that's coming off, otherwise in pretty good shape and lines up well!

That is such a great truck, and I love that you are focusing all your efforts on preservation, and mechanical optimization.

Now, promise me you won't do anything silly, like strip it down and paint it. PROMISE ME. :)

They are only original once; and original paint survivors like yours are the rarest of the rare.

That light receptacle is coming your way as soon as I can figure how to work around our social distancing requirements. Good find on EBAY! I have been looking forever too. My lenses are good with but one has small crack.

I've found that USPS.com right now is invaluable. With Click-n-Ship I can buy the Express postage, using my own box or an Express box that I have a stock of from the post office. I print the label and schedule a pickup with my regular mail delivery. No touch, no post office visit. The only down side is you can only purchase Express postage, not first class. But the difference in price is worth having tracking and not having to leave the house. 8-)

I somehow have a stash of several of those rear lenses, NOS. Not with the bezel though.
Beyond any hope for intervention

Cool, sounds like the thing to do. I have it boxed up and will get it out soon. And River, you have my list, let's do some trading. Having a spare lens would help me sleep easier.

Haha, not hard to make a promise on that one. I will NOT be touching the paint! too much of a perfectionist to not take it down to the frame and start from scratch if I was going to do that, not to mention I don't have the patience, energy, garage space, or points from the wife for that :)

Hugely productive weekend test fitting and running the Koenig winch. So nice to have it off the garage floor and on the patrol. Cable was pretty shot, so starting fresh there, otherwise pretty original except for the fabricated mounts (previous owner I think).
