Tony Good that it clears. I run the 315'S on my tri-axle dump. Not that you will need the weight capacity but they are good for over 9000 lbs. apiece with 9" rims. They are easier to handle than 425'S an d less expensive. Joe D.

Tony looking great. I like the color combo you picked. When I get out of service in March I'll have to come visit on my way to see dad in TX. I still want to try and dig that cabover with the v12 out of one of our neighbors field, and get it to cortland.

First I want to thank Richie better known as rz761 for talking me into doing this he got the ball rolling for me.
And I'd like to thank the guys for sharing there advice to accomplish this.
There in put and thoughts are well appreciated.
I want to thank Glen for telling me I can do it, you can get it done.
Now I can get back to the bodywork and work on the inside of the truck and floor.
I think I went a little over budget. I will figure up my receipts and I'll let you know how much it costs me for the steering and the floats.
Well that's it for now. Thanks Tony

Tony,

That was great! It's nice to see how easy the steering works by the wheel... and by your hand...

I like the music bed, Hotel California, and seeing the shop from empty to full on working...nice!

All in all....CONGRATULATIONS! :mrgreen:

Nice job Tony! The floats give a great look, when you get some free time could you come on back to snow country and help me put power steering on my 758?

NICE JOB TONY!!! that is really neat! Something my 260 will never have. Do you have a Carbon Monoxide detector in the shop?? I have a large Oak tree in the big sky garage that loses its leaves when the level gets too high so I know to shut things down. It has only happened once and that was last October!!

Got into the shop today for a couple hours. Decided to work on the inside removed the seats and start to take the floor apart.
Six of the bolts broke and other 7 came out which was surprising. No big deal to drill them out and tap them.
Very happy with the cross member which is a plus. And for the exception of where a PTO cable was in the floor pan which I will close up.
They are In excellent shape have one piece of floor to change on driver's-side.
once again no big deal.

Thanks for looking! Tony

Well I had a make a deal with Terry, I have 7 Interior doors and 2 exterior doors that needed to be painted.

She said if I give her 1 door a day I could spend more time in the shop. sound like a pretty good deal to me so here's what I got done today in the shop.

Well as you know I am working on the floor of the truck and it got really ugly around the driver side here are a few pictures.

Thanks for looking. TONY

Hi Tony !!
Your making great progress on on the 358 !
It seems like these brockways were built to rust like all
the other trucks of that era!! Just think what a couple of gallons of a
good rust preventive sealer would have prevented!! Yours is not as bad as
our 361 but it is still a challange!! Oldspwr did a lot of time consuming fabrication
on it! Tomcat361

:roll: Glen this is for you :roll: Tomcat361 thanks for the comment.
Well Terry is off to the gym and doing some grocery shopping.
I'm supposed to be painting a door. But as you could see I am playing on the computer :lol: :lol: I better get going

Thanks Glen!!

Well I managed to get one door done. I really don't like painting. specially painting doors and trim.
But I made it into the shop for a couple hours. Cleaned up the floor looking really good.
But taking apart the Accelerator pedal was a real pain in the butt.
You got to try that one some time. you find yourself in a really awkward position.
Had to use a few muscles that hadn't moved in a while but I got it done.

Thanks for looking here are a few pictures.

Tony Everything coming along nicely. I see your Cummins is the Old Gold color. My 1968 361 is beige. I wonder if mine was repainted or when color change was. I had a 1967 White 4000 with 220 Cummins that I ran in early 70'S it was Old Gold color. All you guys are doing what I should be doing. You GG Stan and everyone else but me and that Tomcat fellow. All we get done is that 2nd cup of coffee. Joe D.

You know Joe D. somebody has to have the brains and knowledge and somebody has to do the work. Tom Jr. is one of the best craftsmen I known.
But there is a reason behind his madness and that is Tom Sr. looking over his shoulder. As much as Tom Jr. hates to admit it, Tom Sr. winds up being right most of the time.
That's were your knowledge comes in Joe D. knowing the next move before the person takes it because you bin there before.
Guys like you! Tomcat361! Stan! and a lot of the other guys that are on here especially our younger guys and girls will keep these Brockway's running for a long time to come.
Hopefully in the future to come when the museum is open there will be a place with all the names of the people that supported the museum in the beginning.
And for our younger folks to look back at.

When kind words come from wisdom it is well appreciate. Thanks Tony

Well I managed to get into the shop and put in a couple hours in the last couple of days. In between babysitting and watching the grandkids picking them up from school and feeding them dinner. Thank goodness they went home. IN the last two days I had to build a tree house with them. :o

But getting back to the Brockway using 16 gauge steel self edging primer and black rust ileum paint from Eastwood. And a lot of cutting and shaping I think the new floor came out pretty good. :roll: The rest of the floor will go a lot easier
