Spring is here!

If you are bringing the old truck out of winter storage, or up from the woods, be sure to check the Tech Tip for a few helpful hints.

If you have some work to do before you go cruising, be sure to check out what parts you need from American Classic Truck Parts. They still offer a 10% discount to Stovebolters.

On the speedometer, the first digit, a "1" is slightly higher than the rest of the digits. I read somewhere that once it turns over, that digit never aligns perfectly again. Anyone else hear that one?

By the way, that is a nice old truck!

The axle looks just like the Eaton/H110 under my 61 C40. If it is, here's a good read on it-

Cool truck!
