Drilled and installed trans cross member, pressed pilot bearing into crank, installed engine mounts and got the flywheel, clutch assembly and bell housing hardware all lined up ready to go.

Tomorrow maybe.

All ball joints and tie rods installed....yay...just need to be greased and aligned slightly straight and lock the sleeves. I'll get it aligned when I take it to get certified.
New brake line made up from cylinder to flex line. It was pinched closed.
Diff is ready to fill.

Well, thanks. Having just done mostly plug welds and 18 & 20 ga sectioning up until recently, the rythym and precision are challenging to get the pace and hang of. Finding that I can crank heat way up and wire way down, from suggested settings. I have always liked to hear plug welds, I can do them by ear with gloved hand closed around the tip, but doing longer welds with so many other dudes making noise, that can hinder me. But I am seeing improvement and grinding quite a bit less.

That was kinda hot.

David, you just inadvertently came closer to the fender blanket identification than anybody else has. I would hate to have to start dropping clues on the trivia thread.

Well, I got out and worked on the truck tonight, WHOO HOOO. The house I am buying is going smoothly and my head is somewhat clear enough again to work on the truck. I am going to finish up the window in the drivers door getting that channel all back in and chop the frame on the glass. It sure is nice having a stock door so I can know how it fits and stuff before I cut it, damn that's nice having that door.

I didn't know questions are removable but the same ones do get repeated, done that myself. Nobody can answer this one it seems. Too many advertising tigers. It can rot.

I admit I went looking for this but it has been a couple of days.

One of Uniroyal's best known tires is the Tiger Paw introduced in the 1960s and included as original equipment for that decade's muscle cars such as the Pontiac GTO, which itself was promoted as The Tiger during its early years. Today, Uniroyal still uses the Tiger Paw brand name in its tire line.

John, you have half the answer now and are as warm as David on the other half. But nobody will ever guess it without searching. Unless they were there! I discovered the answer by mistake after we talked about the fender blanket. The gas tigers, and the Tiger Paw tiger are mostly cartoon characters whereas the trivia Q tiger is more of a representational illustration and was probably also copyrighted for use by one company only. At first I thought it might be clip art. Good luck, and if you have guesses post those on that thread please.

Y'all have a good work day or good retire day, whichever applies. Finally payday here.

Charged the camera battery Tuesday night so it would be ready for yesterday and then forgot to take it to work...
I did make a rather cool patch for the 47 Ford, but it's already welded on. I'll take pics of it today.....if I remember the camera...

Are you saying that the Tiger illustration we see is not a company logo?

Never made it to the shp today. I spent the day fooling with a new thermostat for the HVAC. Once I got past the A/C coming on when I turned up the heat I discovered I had bought a thermostat that does not have an auxilliary heat control function.

Mowed the grass 2 days ago and it is going to be 26 degrees tonight. My heat pump has no auxillary heat function working. I just broke out my smallest (of three) Kerosene heaters.

I guess I did do something......Bought a new tube of thread locker for the flywheel and clutch.
