Our in-house team worked without rest, tackling the engine, transmission and drive-shaft issues. A new drive shaft was custom fabricated. This was a job that a local machine-shop was unable to tackle. But we do not take no for an answer, so an industrious friend or two managed to make a perfect drive shaft.
The drive shaft fit, the drive train aligned properly and now Farm Truck is mobile!
We are still short a few odds and ends, like any glass for the cab and an interior. But we are undaunted!
