I'll start out by first addressing that the title does not refer to my stage in life, as I am about 30 years short of that goal. With the back-story on this truck you can understand where the thread name originated. Below you will find the previous newb' thread I started getting us to this moment in time. See attached link below: http://www.binderplanet.com/forums/index.php?threads/inquiring-about-some-red-iron.143090/ Over the next winter months (and into the spring) I will be going through the truck bringing it back to at a minimum road-worthy state, then allowing other projects to occur as its driven. My plan is to take this truck to the Syracuse Nationals (put on by the Right Coast, Inc.) July 2020. The point of this build is to leave the truck just as outfitted and as factory correct as possible (with understanding the the pump body and other outfits were not done at the IH factory). In the short term I will be performing the following: Complete brake job; Fluid changes; Front closed-knuckle seals; A temporary set of tires (until I can afford the period correct gumbos); and Complete tune up. I just purchased my re-print CTS-2312 Service Manual and will be purchasing the MT-124 Part Catalog as well as a Line Setting Ticket to help me get through the above mentioned work. This will be a bit different for me as I am used to working on vehicles (I have a 89' Mustang) where parts are plentiful. It sounds like many of the parts removed from this truck will need to be rebuilt for replacement. I have obtained a spot for winter storage with heat allowing me to do this work. Additional updates will be posted as soon as I get the truck into the winter storage unit.
