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.

Looking good!!

I got a pair of those new Memory Foam shoe inserts. Hasn't helped much- When I walk to another room, I still can't remember why.

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)
