|Got the cab off, sketchy as frig
All mounts out, started pulling. My thinking was to get it on the bed, pull the frame and bed out from under it and put it on the ground.
Cab was halfway up when I realized the strap was hanging on with hope and a prayer
Got it on the bed, super sketch man
Readjusting a strap. Safety last!
I didn’t get a picture of the actual butt pucker moment, the cab was suspended in the air by a 20 year old 2x6 lol...
Got the bed down, realized halfway through that I wouldn’t be tall enough to release the come along dangling from the beam....,I cut the strap going across the cab once it was free from the bed.
Tucked her in for the night, she cooperated well and looked tired. This was post-strap cutting, it’s on the ground now.
If I had an engine hoist now would be the time to pull the engine and trans, sadly I do not. Don’t worry, I covered the engine with a trash bag then set the head on top, it also has a trash bag on it. Tackling the bed tomorrow, I got some drill bits to drill out the heads of the bed bolts, we’ll see how that works.
