To my ODSS brothers, my primary mission at the Tri-State Truck Show is shared brotherhood and the appreciation of fine American steel. My secondary mission is to get the NAPCO Beast running after about 11 or 12 years of being a lawn ornament. If you have anything that you think might possibly help to accomplish my secondary mission, please bring it. Any parts, tools, rebuild kits etc. are welcomed and I will pay for anything we end up using. I flushed out the gas tank today with fresh non-ethanol gas and the fuel pump started leaking profusely. The cork gasket for the glass fuel bowl was toast and nobody near me has one. That is one obvious part I will need prior to starting. Anything else that you might have for a 1950 2-ton, would be appreciated. Thanks gents and see you at the “Big One”.
On a separate note, I borrowed a trailer from a friend today to haul the NAPCO to the show, but for some reason the trailer brakes aren’t working. I’ll play with them in the morning and if I can’t fix them, I’ll use my own smaller trailer. One way or another, it’s getting to the show.
