I snuck in to the garage and got the starter installed today.

Well that fu***ng master cylinder just does not fit properly in there. It comes in contact with the steering and the engine. My new plan is to build my own mounting bracket from scratch and place the dual master cylinder in a good location. Then I’ll deal with getting the pedal and ram to work with it. Up to now I have been positioning the master cylinder based on where the ram strikes. But clearly that is not going to work.

Anyhow I took it apart again and filled the bolt holes in the frame today.

I also got the generator mounted.

You're not cheap, you're frugal.  Plus, look at it as keeping excess tires out of the landfill.  And with holes in 'em, they won't hold water, thus not becoming a breeding ground for mosquitoes.  I read somewhere that unmounted tires with water in them are huge mosquito "nests".

Don't pick on yourself.  Yours are probably as good as the originals.  Good ole ingenuity fixes lots of things.

I think I’m just to cheap to buy the proper pads.
Who knows. Maybe these are better.

Well Jon, for many years now if a tire didn’t have any tread on it or wouldn’t hold air I had no use for it. My thinking has been they only got one job to do. They gotta stay round. When they won’t I figure they’re useless. Guess I’m gonna have to rethink it.

I’m thinking I’ll make the pads for the body mounts out of the same tire.

Clever idea using the hole saw to cut nice multi-ply pads for your rad mount--I gotta remember this. Thanks for sharing!

It took a while but I got the broken bolt out of the back of the block!

I had the utmost faith in you Jon. Looks like you got it without even damaging the paint.
