Well consider yourself lucky! I put mine out in the sun Saturday, watered it with a pressure washer. Came out yesterday afternoon to check on it and the rear axle, rear driveshaft, steps, mud flaps, and the front tires all fell off.... :lol:

Well ran into an issue......I can not get the front oil drain bung out of the block to installed the new one. I have tried vice grips and such with no luck expect to break the nipple off. So, now the oil pan has to come off so I can drive it out.

Got the bung out today and glad I pulled the pan. Someone (not me) replaced the pan gasket and just used grey silicone for a gasket and there was some stray silicone in the pickup tube screen.f0908bba1bdc50cdf177f0e5fdc37389.jpga1de0511c54db6d837fa41355490eeb3.jpgcc2bb3d54ce825cfa806604fe9bbaf15.jpg60dcc90b46c6f43cde96702f4e589241.jpg

That stray silicone is bad stuff. If any of it finds it's why into a piston cooling nozzle it's game over!

Yea luckily it would hit the filter first but still. Here is where I left off for the day. Had a heck of a time trying to figure out how the intake pipe fits but I may have figured it out.2cb42c55acac5f96f2c89abe1f79adf7.jpgb6f8102118c0782bc28e627ce8e1931d.jpg

It looks like that top bend is tight enough you might still have room for a on board air compressor!
