b) Body Removal

This task is not very difficult but you will need a couple of friends near by.  It took 4 adults (with Gloves) to lift off the body tub.  We removed as many parts as we could prior to the body lift to minimize the weight.  A nice sturdy “body buck” will be required.

Body is flipped so I can repair the floor.

The frame assembly is rolled into the shed for winter work.  It gets cold here in New England, I think I need to insulate the inside of the shed.

A easy engine out

The engine will be put into an engine stand for now and a separate post will document it’s rebuild.  I’m not planning any special modifications, just a standard overhaul.

Good Enough.
