It runs!
I had the timing 180* off and it back fired and my muffler is a bit bloated but we got it running
Front axle is back together just need to pick up some gear lube
Need to fill with coolant
Wire up a permanent ground wire some small stuff and it's ready to wheel this weekend

Come saturday. I will give you a ride in my truck. You will probably be able to get a ride in one of the crazy built trucks also.

If that doesn't work I am sure I will make it up a bunch this year so there will be pleanty of chances.

Found this from rocks and valleys a few weeks ago
Took the face off cleaned it, inspected it and reinstalled

Fan motor on my Taurus fan was junk so I replaced that
I also finally replaced my bent pitman arm with another one we reamed
It may get a tie rod adjustment but other then that is ready for rocks and valleys this weekend
