Sheesh! Some people will come up with the craziest stories just so they don't have to post pictures. Next time you'll say the dog ate your camera.

Re: '46 Chevy Shorty

I'll bet that will produce some interesting pics--at least someone is taking pics . So glad your place was spared! After welding and before going home I try to remember to double check for hot spots. I remembered not doing it at about 2 AM this morning and tossed and turned the rest of the night. I got lucky too--no fire. Jack

Re: '46 Chevy Shorty

Hey Jack --- I know just what you mean. Especially after a day of setting myself on fire. I just can't let go of wondering..."did that last spark really go out?" But the call today was especially disturbing since it was a total stranger's screw up that was threatening everything I own...and is uninsured.

Re: '46 Chevy Shorty

Hey Guys --- I totally forgot that the chap at Stewart & Stevenson had Emailed me a pic of the tranny when we were discussing how to load it.
SO...without further ado...


...Ta-Daaah! This is what they look like all new & shiny.
I figure I'd better enjoy it now since it will very likely never be seen in this state again after spending time behind the Cummins.
Still have a bunch of related parts to scrounge to make it work (wiring harness, shifter, trans mount, etc.) but at least it's a start on the driveline.
