That's great news John!

It's nice to see the truck is 100% whole again and ready to work.

I guess you are no longer looking for a stock front bumper. Too bad I found one, nos, perfect, and nearly free.👌

Yes, I still want one. Grab it, please. I'm not really in a mood to be screwed with so you'd best present yourself next with bumper in hand or ...

Update. Freyja and I just returned from a triumphal grand tour of Mechanicsville (we went up to DJ's to get fuel -- the quarter tank that was in there is about a year old at this point. Still running well, though). Not really a test of the pump (more a test of the input shaft's u-joints wink ), but the brakes and engine all worked flawlessly. Even had that 500 gallons of water onboard that we transferred during the pump test yesterday. Nice ride. With the governor removed and the Holley 300 carb upgrade, the truck cruises effortlessly at 70 mph. And with radials all around, the ride is nice and the steering is like the truck is on rails.

Nice afternoon cruise to get reacquainted with this truck wink

Glad to see the pump test yielded positive results. Looking at that picture you posted, it may be time to conduct some hose testing on a regular basis too! thumbs_up
