I got the ol truck engine rebuilt, water pump finally back on, new choke cable in and got it running and driving pretty good now. It still
ain't stopping yet so I am just driving it in my yard for now. I have found a guy that may can help me with the brakes. That is all I need to
see it on the road for the first time in many years. I am so glad for the progress I have made on it. Here is a picture or two of this old retired 3
ton Army truck.

Very nice Troy, she is a beauty! Don't be discouraged when you get to the brakes, it may take more than you expect but it will be worth the trouble.

nice looking rig! Just don't skimp on the brakes, do everything and you'll be fine! (replacing all flexible hoses and metal tubes as well)
