Jeff, Thats some messy looking "CRAP" !!!!!, I had a issue with the Stewart heating now that I have a temp gauge in it. I pulled the thermostat, some brain surgeon once upon a time put a new thermostat in with the linen parts tag still attached !!!!! the string was there but just gobs of linen fabric around the thermostat and filled the bypass tube. You never know !!!!!

It's better, but not right. Looks to me like near a third of the radiator tubes have been soldered. I

Looks like the radiator is the main culprit. I hauled it in today, it's only letting about 15% through. Zero water column. It has to be recored.
This is what a water distribution tube looks like. This is the extra engine that came with the truck, which turns out to have a bad freeze crack in the block. The distribution tube is great if I need it.

There are people who can weld or braze a cracked block, so I wouldn't count that spare engine as scrap.

I had a '39 Ford 9N tractor that had a chunk put back in the block. It had a combination of brazing and nickel welding holding things together. The Shaker who sold it to me pointed it out first thing. Never had a problem with that.

I had a dream...
« Reply #608 on: August 11, 2017, 10:36:47 am »
So, I had a dream night before laast that caused me to stop anything else I was doing on M.R. Truck and address what happened in the dream.  I dreamed that one of the little neighbor girls had climbed up in the truck, which they do, because they like the truck. As I was watching, the little head disappeared below the windshield. That's when I heard the engine turn over and saw the truck lurch forward suddenly because she had scooted down in the seat and pushed the start peddle and the truck was in gear.

I have dreams like that all the time about things I never think of while I am awake. In this case, I woke up knowing I had a safety issue.  The starter peddle is wired directly to the starter. There is no neutral safely switch on this truck and shutting the key off only prevents the truck from starting, not from turning over.

So, after short consideration, I've installed a 12 volt shut off switch this morning. I put it in the center of the riser of the seat platform. The key locks in when it is on, and can be removed when in the off position.

 :) One of da few memories I have of my early childhood was driving my dad's cattle truck. My brothers and I found if we put dat big thing sticking out of da floor in a certain place, and one of us held down dat little nob on da floor, we could drive dat truck. We musta not figured out dat key thing, thank goodness.  :D  My dad sold dat truck just before he passed away, which would have made me 7, and my brothers 5 and 6.

Looks like it goes well with that running board. Mine can't be the only old eyes you're straining, though. I blew it up until it was just pixels and still didn't get a good look at it.

YOU PROMISED PICS! More than 1! Almost as bad as the beginning of this thread where you wouldn't reveal what you were up to.
