First Picture: The truck hiding in the barn. This is the second barn, the first one almost blew down in the mid-80's. All four tires are still inflated - one brake is stuck, but it pulled loose.

Second Picture: On the trailer - the hood is in the bed.

Third Picture: Stripped down and going to the metal refinisher for bead blasting. I reminded the guy doing the work that it was going to the refinisher, not the scrap yard. At this point it could go either way.

Fourth Picture: Back at the shop. The cab is jigged up, ready for some serious metal replacement.

Fifth Picture: The 4-134 F-head ready to go to the machine shop. The front motor mount plate is off the original engine. Is was hit really hard sometime and right corner bent backwards. It matched the frame bracket so I moved it from the original L-head engines to this one to keep from having to change mounts. We've straightened it and will make the other side match up this time.
