Been working on my TT steady, trying to get it on the road this year. Putting in my modified brake peddle to hook up my Rocky Mountain brakes and what do I see? this - DANG! my TT is giving my an education one way or the other :-)
Sorry for the bad news.
Good news you found it when you did not when it exploded into pieces.
Time to tear her down.
Do you mean the crack in the reverse drum, took a while to see it, bummer!
oh yes, I should have said the reverse drum. Yep, I agree Larry - I would rather find it this way :-)
Got a picture of this TT ?
Looks like it is time for JB weld!
Just Kidding -
Ugh, that would just make me want to vomit. I feel tired just looking at that picture.
Here you go Brent. Yep, I was getting pretty confident that I would have it on the road by the end of the year. But know, who knows? Kind of afraid what else I will find when I open it up. Everything else on the truck I have checked has been in rough shape. I have not touched the engine once I got it running and it seems to run very well. I bought the truck, just the chassis. Kind of made a vegetable kind of body for it. Real pleased with it, as neither my Dad or I could pound a nail straight if our lives depended on it:-) terrible at wood work, I failed wood shop in school. This was the last project my Dad was able to assist me with, dear memories for me.
Tom, really like your truck! Your muffler is in process and I should be able to get it shipped out to you tomorrow.
Right on Seth! just let me know what I owe ya.
New band linings are probably in order. Looks like the brake band lining is unraveling. While you're in there it would be nice to balance the drums if it hasn't been done.
