Thanks Bob. Brandt is a great guy and I find it my pleasure and honor to have met him. He was very helpful during the whole process and I am not sure there is a nicer guy than him:)
We got the engine in the truck running once we could get the rings to seat up and build some compression after sitting so long. There are a couple of valves sticking though so I know my father was taking the head off today to look at them. The transmission does still work which is nice to know.
We are really looking forward to working on this truck and will absolutely be keeping it stock original since I am modifying my 49 2R5 already.
