mr W. U. Call

nicely so done, so, when are you planning to finish it up, IMHO, at the rate you are going, thinking you will be at McCall...

excellent work, and untold hours/money...

Has been a slow start to snow season around our part. But on the other side it has given me a little time to work on the 443. Installed engine and tranny last night and began on some of the hydraulics today. Should be able to finish wiring and start putting engine side panels and hood on tomorrow. Would like to have engine running soon.

Thanks Tom I just keep working on her as time allows and one day i may just finish !! Had to put tires on because i did not trust my front and rear castors as they were slightly over weighted. Plus this will give me a chance to dial in steering alignment issues.

Super nice job!!

Make sure that the axle nuts are tight. I would be torqueing them after the first runs. If they get any slack, the axle and extension get messed up. Those axles were special made for Tucker and not used in any on high way rigs. Last estimate I heard about the cost to re make was north of $1200.00

That's just plain BEAUTIFUL!. Of course when you post a few photos they act like teasers... So...how about some more, and of course some details, too.

So often with a well done project, photos don't do it justice. Do you have plans to bring it to any "get togethers"/"rendezvous" (which has the same spelling for singular or plural usage) next winter?

Thanks for the advice Sno- Drifter, i had them as tight as i dared with my 3/4 drive socket and breaker bar. And yes will be checking tightness after first run. 1200.00 plus is a little spendy for sure. Should get her done before winter and pray for lots of snow this year!
