  4. thanks daz .like you have not been on here in a while allso well i thought it was time i did a little update even tho i have not been posting for a while the work on floyd has continued . over the christmas holidays i was prepareing floyd for the local new years day road run when suddenly the main air tank decided that it was going to leak . on inspection the tank had rusted and gone thin so was removed from the truck and had a new barrell welded into it. now is good as new . to get the tank out the only way i could was too release the u bolts and lift the chassis off the axel to give me room to drop the tank out the bottom past the diff . whille the tank was being welded i sent the rear leaf spings away to be re tempered and rebuilt at the same time . also i have decided my trusty little hobbit box is no longer big enough so a replacemet has been found and purchased . :cool2:
