I'll post some more pics in a day or so. Right now I have the plow off so that I can finish the mount attachment. It's an older Boss V plow where the hydraulics and headlights stay attached to the truck.
The truck belonged to the state of California at one time and had plow mounts on it but it was too much trouble to adapt them so I took them off and started from scratch. The old mounts were the kind where the front mount is supported vertically only and old school hotrod style radius rods ran back to the middle of the frame to provide thrust load support.
Got the truck for free from a retired contractor neighbor. I'd seen it in his yard for years and it looked so bad I thought it'd burned in a fire, but it was just old oxidized paint made it look that way. Had to repair the front driveshaft, replace some of the brake parts, plus fix some fender rust. That was about it, other than a lot of cleaning, paint and tires. I wanted the truck to haul gravel with and sort of fell into the plow from another neighbor.
The motor is an IHC gasoline fired Red Diamond 450 inline 6. After setting so many years the oil was kind of like spaghetti sauce but after draining and flushing it a couple of times it seems to be fine. Has good oil pressure, doesn't smoke and starts and runs OK. Fuel is expensive, but then I don't use it much. And still cheaper and more fun than paying someone to deliver gravel.
