progress is being made--batteries bought, key made,  switch replaced

--wowie-- zowie--back ramp goes up and down 

Called Marty and he came by with one of the axles turned down ready to be re-splined for the El M axle

My job of the day is to wire in some fuses and finish the re wiring that Marty had to do on the pump wiring on the front hyd ram that raises the trailer for hooking up.

Hopefully we will be able to start the re-spline soon.

You may want to look into getting those axles heat treated after you've resplined them. I've had experience with doing 9" Ford axles in the past and without heat treatment they'd shear off right where they entered the side gears.

Good luck.  cheers cheers cheers
