Manny,

Very cool that you got to learn from an old body man! Those tricks are becoming things of the past. Especially with using those old fashioned slide hammers! My wife bought me one for christmas last year, and I still have yet to learn how to do it! :oops:
But awesome seeing some forward progress! Keep up the good work!

Manny once I am back to full swing I verify the list below.

Here is a partial list;
1) Set of brand new wheel cylinders still in boxes for the HD44.
2) Set of brand new wiper seal kits in boxes from Spicer for the HD44.
3) Set of brand new flexible brake lines from Wagner for the HD44.
4) Set of used spindles & hubs in good shape for the HD44.
5) Set of used brake drums in good shape for the HD44.
6) Complete HD44 axle maybe minus the spindle nuts but everything else is there. This axle does have new wheel cylinders as well, but they were installed 20 years ago and never really used. I think the axle shafts have new u-joints installed. I know that there are new king pin bearings top and bottom.

All the hardware is there as well so just let me know your need and I will pull it in the shop and start disassembly.

Had odd hours this week but made some progress. Hope to get more done around yard work tomorrow.

Passenger side was not as bad but still rough.

The drip rail was mostly attached but had to add a piece. I've found wedging it in behind the panel then doing top and bottom weld works well.

Also welded up the thin spots in the drip rail and then full welded it down where it was left and ground it all up.

Got the filler patch cut just gotta get it in all for now. :D

Progress is a good thing Manny. I did respond to the PM. I will get started tomorrow I hope. As far as tearing the axle down no problem.

Sounds like you have been a little busy. I completely understand that, I haven't been as regular myself due to being so busy. Looking forward to seeing some progress when you have the chance to get back at it again.
