Not really, made the chaincase,I'll try to post the pic this week. Still brainstorming the huge bogies system, I think I got it figuired out,but it won't be excactly like the original. Waiting on clutch which is in the machine shop being bored and keyed so I can set chaincase with the torgue converter for clearence problems. hotdoo

 I had to travel to Hillman Mi last tuesday to confirm some dimentions on tin cab with an original, so far I put the trottle brackets in the wrong place and forgot the fuel pickup pipe on tank. Been gone for 9 days, so I trying to catch up before we leave to go somewhere again!hotdoo
