“I have two of these trucks. One is a 1958 and the other a 1961. They both need total restoration. They are well optioned with long wheelbases (9ft beds), running boards, hurricane engine etc. The 1958 was a Forrest Service vehicle, original paint color was ‘Safety Green’. 1961 was intended to be a parts vehicle but they both can be restored. Clean title in hand. Emblems and black on yellow plates are in hand as well. There are many parts that go with these Jeeps. Take a look at the pics and let me know if this something you’d like to know more about.”

I have pictures of all the parts I have. Some may not even be for it ? All gears seem to be in decent shape, some surface rust and oxidization on housing inside. I needed a 26 tooth, so this one won’t work for me. I’m willing to ship, however due to weight it’s going to be about 45-50 bucks. Text is best”

More Progress, Despite The Great Cow Escape

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .
2023-01-20-cows-escape

Bad cows …

I had big plans to work out early and get out to the shop. But, just as I finished my lifting, our neighbor Andrew texted me at 7:30am, “I got a text from my neighbor Dan Green. Your cows are in his pasture.”

Ugh. There went my early start in the shop.

We piled on clothes (below freezing this morning), loaded up the UTV, and headed over to Andrew’s fence line (the cows have been borrowing Andrew’s pasture). Sure enough, the cows had created a nice wide entrance in the wire fence.

The moment the cows heard our UTV, they recognized it was feeding time, so we lured six of them back to Andrews pasture. Of course, one dumb cow, our 7mo steer, couldn’t figure out how to get back through the fence, so, of course, he went over another part of the non-barbed wire fence, damaging it. Ugh.

Once at Andrew’s pasture, we wooed them over to our pasture with food and closed the access gate to Andrew’s place. With the cows grounded, we went to work on the fence.

2023-01-20-cows-escape2

Thankfully, it didn’t take too long to fix the fence. I.believe our two mischievous 2yo steers (they become meat next month) were leaning over the fence to get some tall grass in Dan Green’s pasture, which caused the fence to collapse. Bad cows.

Now for the cage progress. I’ll skip the explanation (am tired) and just get straight to the pics. The big loop is completed, along with the back bars and the rear cross bar. Everything is, level, square, tacked-in-place, and ready for more bars.

There will be no work on Friday (quick trip to Seattle), but I plan to get back to it this weekend. I’ll add more bars for strength, then begin work on the front loop.
