Well today I started with the revival. Back in November things were so weird in my life I just parked the old girl and didn't think much about her with exception to selling the aluminum wheels as I planned to go to 19.5's (which I no longer have). So this is how it sat behind my shop.
And my neglect of the truck had included a total forgetting that she was full of water, not antifreeze, so I found the upper radiator hose had popped off. I hoped this was the extent of the damage, and fingers crossed I hooked it back up.
With a set of fresh used batteries the old cummins cranked right over and fired immediately. Pulling into the shop I topped off the radiator and let it idle 20 minutes or so. No leaking, so I think I got lucky, whew!
Getting to work, I peeled off all the Route 55 stickers. It was kinda sad and freeing at the same time, seeing the last reality of my little company go away.
A razor, scrubbrush and some adhesive cleaner go a long way.
