OK guys, here is a long overdue update on my halftrack. Sorry, no photos with this update.

Between getting inspections done on my new house, signing papers and getting ready to move, the halftrack took to the side lines for a while. I have since installed the fenders, front bumper, doors, windshield armor, hood and headlights.

On the passenger side door I added the pocket for the lube chart. Some years ago I purchased one from Outsider, painted it and then put it in that safe place. Well, when I needed it I couldn't find it so I bought another one from Outsider and installed it. Yesterday I was showing Don something and I found it! :D

For the most part the halftrack is done. I still have a few items to address but for now it can be moved or so I thought.

Since the first test run I have been having problems with fuel starvation. I've tried changing carburetors, bypassing both fuel filters and fuel pump with no luck. From the fuel tank selection valve forwards all have been bypassed. this means the problem is somewhere from the valve back. Just when I was ready to give up Don, once again, suggested that I blow the line with air. I finally agreed and so far that did the trick. Big thanks to Don!! :D

This Saturday Don and I are invited to a car show so I have a few more thing to do to get ready for Saturday. I'm going to make another test run today and finish up a few more items then its of to the car show. I will try and get some more photos posted soon.

I told you that you would find it in your safe place! ;D
