Every thing braced and cab gutted it is time to pull the cab.
First try engine crane hitting cross brace.
Second try added some plywood to move the lifter higher. Too high need to try again.
Third try cut down the plywood and it fit like a glove, a very tight glove.

After I got all the trim pieces off I braced the cab in a way that I would be able to remove the old jams and install the newer ones. Sorry for the poor pictures my battery went low on my camera.

The doors were always a little loose. So this winter I plan to get the cab ready for paint. I removed the doors and all the trim pieces and found the front door jams were made out of wood. Most of the wood was rotted.
(I was able to score a complete set of steel jams and the crossover piece that goes behind the dash off a 37/38 cab on e-bay. These cabs are very close to a 36 low cab.)

I had a couple of hand winches lying around so I added some rope to the poly. I attached the rope to the out side of the poly strung it under the poly up to the ceiling through an eye hook and down to the winch. I added eye hooks above the winch to keep the rope from tangling. I then placed a candle between the eye hooks to lube the rope to allow it to work smoothly.
