  • The Pusher!

    I got the front push bumper installed and 4 new rear tires mounted. Lights all work and got the heat and all the gauges back working.
    Had to install a new printed circuit board to get the gauges working.Igot to find a better front tag for it thoe!

    Looks good! I have mine with the top even with the hood (77 chevy flatbed) since I am offroad when I push most of the cars, I needed more clearance. Still low enough I havent ran over anything..

      I doubt I'll be going offroad in it! I hope not anyway! I have 2 4" round LED lights I plan to run on it and take those regular ones off and put them out back for backups and loading!

            I was worried about the weight of it at first but after installing it we measured it and it only sunk about 1/4" on the front end from where it was before. It doesn't even effect the running temp that I could tell. Can't wait to get back home and do some more work on it. Tilt wheel is next on the list and hopefully 2 more front tires.
            I got the tilt column just need to take it a part and shave the collar off for a straight drive. Clean it up and paint it.

                Awhile back I did the front brakes. New shoes and rebuilt the wheel cylinders in both front wheels. Adjusted the front & rear drums got it stopping pretty good now on it's own.

                    What! I drove it yesterday and it stops good on it's own with no gearing down. I'm very pleased with it.
