    Sad to say,this was my last photo of the day.I couldn't make it back on Sunday to see it all finished and Joe taking it for a spin..Hopefully someone can continue where I left off..

    Makes me feel all warm inside to have watched this awesome bunch of guys put in work on this truck to make Joes dream a reality..Hats off to all involved!

    Can somebody pick up the torch and run with it on getting the starter swapped out? I have an emergency situation to tend to, which will keep me from getting over there.

    I'd have to give that one a first-hand-experience 'hell no.'

    /2 cents

    And, great to see the ole' pitch-in-and-git-r-done approach!

    Does the starter still need to be replaced? I may be able to make it over, but it may be dark by the time I get across the bridge. I could drive into work tomorrow and head over afterwards, if this is needed let me know.

    I'll push that truck into the show if it came down to it!

    Ed, thanks for the pictures. Almost makes it look like I was doing some work.

    I can get over there either afternoon as well. Do we have everything we need or do I need to pick anything up?
    Let me know.

    I'm getting the starter once the meds kick in which should be about 11:00.

    The starter wasn't in the Oakland warehouse, it had to come from Union City hence the delay.

    Let me know if it doesn't go in today, I'll come over when I can if need be. Hopefully it will be pretty straight forward.

    Cool, thanks. Miles will be home around 2:00 so if I can't get it in by then, he'll be able to help.

    Thanks!

    I picked up the starter and a pack of shims.

    I'll go by around 2:00 when Miles gets off work to help him with the install.

    I know the H.A.M.B. is full of good people like we have witnessed in this thread, but damn it still makes you go 'wow' when a pile of guys you don't know are willing to get some shit done in the clutch. Right on guys!

    Hey Joe, I'm Tim's neighbor Mike, looks like you guys were able to use the single jack, that thing came back all sorts of filthy:D Awesome!

    I gave Tim a call this morning and let him know that gimpyshotrods wouldn't be able to make it.

    So if Miles is not available or other things get fubar'd we can head on over from C.V. and give you a hand probably sometime after 4P.M. I'll give Tim a call and see what the plan is in a few.

    Talked to Tim, he said he doesn't have your number, but will/did talk to the other Joe(?) and let him know.

    How did I miss this thread? I would have definitely offered to trailer the truck to my place in San Jose. I have a big driveway that can house five cars. Plus, I have three compressors, tons of jack stands, jacks and large tool box full of tools. Moreover, there are three auto parts stores within a mile of my house.

    I'm sorry I missed out on this opportunity to help. I also wouldn't have mind to learn how to install a disc brake kit, as I plan to do this on my 51. I am glad that other HAMBers kicked in to help.
