Dumped off a load of firewood today to a lady down the road. "Gert" my 1942 second GI Chevy project did what she is was made to do... Pretty cool that old iron can still work even after 76 years.

Thanks guys. The cylinder ram and pump on this truck run like a Swiss watch. All that was required was a fluid change and repacking of the cylinder and actuator valves. I was reluctant to open up the one-piece integral pump/ram system as everything inside is made of unobtainium. The PTO driveline was a different story as the PO repaired it with all sorts of non-functioning cobbled junk. With a bunch of head scratching/measuring/searching, I was able to source oddball (13/16 diameter) driveline parts to make a darn smooth and quite running driveline. Paul
