    Thank you! Gord,
    I actually use the shrink on my pliers and other hand tools for a nice grip or comfort also on screwdrivers that I will be using on electrical like the ones the metal tip only sticks out of and if it starts getting worn I just replace it i buy the bulk boxes from HF for like 4 bucks and can do allot of pliers handles with the stuff
    and if you need it to be a little thicker double it or then just dip it they have the rubber dip stuff there at HF as well

    Looks like you hit the mother load there. Nice find. You got all the right stuff and a few extras that you never find. I can tell you the year made by the sn which is at the far rh (tailstock) end of the bed. The rear drive will allow you to get rid of the flat leather belt and add an automotive type serpentine belt that won't slip or dry out like the leather...Bob

    Default fan cluch removal tool.

    A while back I was replacing my watre pump on my 1990 F150 adn had to take the fan off the fan cluch. When I went to auto zone they wahted $15 for the tool to do this when I got it I found out its nothing more than a 56mm wrench made out of 3/8 flat stock. it also had about 5 other wrences to use with other cars and trucks. I layed them out on some plate I had that just happended to be 3/8 and spray painted over them with gloss black so auto zone would not know waht I did, then I cut the mouth of the wrench wiht a grinder to get a good exzact fit on the size ofthe opening for the nut and just torch cut the outer edges of the wrench because it was faster and cost less. I think you could use 1/4 or 1/8 you might need to strengthen up the 1/8.
    Just cause I ain't old don't mean I ain't old school.
