Final ride? by CDogOne

Final ride?


5 January 2019 at 14:08:19 MST

I forgot to post this here. This was taken about a year ago.

In tow, a 1948 Kaiser Special.
On Thursday I had to take it out to state patrol for an inspection. If things go well, I get to keep it.
If things didn't go well...I don't know what will happen honestly.
Thankfully, things went well.

    Is it back on the road, now? I love seeing these old timers out and about.

      Not yet sadly.
      I still have a whole host of things i want and need to do. Major and small.
      To be on the road, i just need to go through the brakes, fuel system, and get tires. If i had all those parts on hand, it'd be on the road tomorrow afternoon.
      I do have a video clip of it running at least if you want me to link that

      And you know. no seat belts or air bags.

      And grease.
      There's something like 135 grease zerks i need to work my way through.

        My brother was an auto mechanic in the 1970s. he says some of the old 4-wheel drive trucks had enough grease fittings to drive you ber-Zerk.

          HA! I love it.

          Apparently, after Jeep bought Kaiser in 57(?) and started to make the M35, then M35a2 Deuce and a halfs, Kaiser kept they're affinity to grease zerks. You'd think you got them all, then remember you missed like 20 and so would have to crawl back under the truck.

            That can't be much fun. Better if you have access to a lift, but a lot of shops won't let you near their equipment any more, for insurance purposes,
