Re: how i set my cab on .......solo

Actually a great "resource thread" this.

We all learn from here.

This is copied and pasted from my thread when using my buddy Martin get his cab off.

Built the jig, based on one I saw on here.

Video clip shows how easy it works too.



I spent about 5 hours over at mate Martins place today.

We removed his cab, which has set me thinking that I should maybe remove mine as well, to get better access to the underside of the chassis.

On removing the cab, he found a lot more rust, terrible historic patches an a load of sand inside the chassis outriggers.

I will post up the pics to tell the story of getting the "special tool" in and moving the cab away.

Final inspection before removing the last two chassis mounting bolts.



One broke off, despite all preparation.



Lifting jig fitted to three ton hoist.










VIDEO IN LINK BELOW

AND THIS IS HOW IT WAS DONE:

IMPRESSIVE STUFF, AND RESULT.





Next up we parked the cab out the way, the trolley needs another 24 inches of height, which will happen later.




Farmer Brown........



Lastly Martin removed the welded on front bumper and the truck was put back into its tight spot.



That was it for this weekend.

As we go on working together, I am learning more and more.
