Mounting plate ( for the roof ) and the light fixture/sockets. Actually, I might try and make a mounting plate out of a sheet of aluminum here but it would be nice to have one to go off of instead of ripping mine out.

All I need to finish are those exhaust parts, Bering for the flywheel, the resurfacing done ( should be covered ) and some new gear-oil for break-in.

I have a run to Cleveland in the A.M. with Flatbed Ed. I should be back by 1 at the latest. I have to swing by WestHerr out on camp road for a throw-out bering and exhaust manifold gaskets. It all should go together easily though.

Rob intends to stop by on Saturday to offer some help.

Hard to believe that was the same truck that I saw on Sunday. Great work.

D. and Brian, I drained oil in my pan again today and will Wrap teflon tape around the oil level sensor and apply more JB-Weld below the sensor where we saw the small leak coming from tomorrow afternoon before work.

Over night, the puddle got to about the size of a softball.
Then will let it sit for a day or 2 before filling with oil again.
Like you told me, take my time and don't rush.

Thanks for your help guys, let me know when you are all getting together again.
