Had the same thing happen to a '74 GMC 3/4t pickup with a 292 inline 6cyl..
That screw hammered so hard we thought the engine was shot.  Had a time getting the screw out of the piston, it was really stuck.  That was many years ago. It was a good ranch truck for many more years after we put the head back on.

Tom, good to know I didn't start some crazy trend.  Ya live, ya learn.

As time moved forward, there would be several mini projects performed between trail rides and parades.
 
I was always a little disappointed in the wheels on this 3A.  I finally found a complete set of original 15" Kelsey Hayes wheels.  I blasted, painted then mounted them up. . .

In my never ending pursuit to slow the leaks and improve performance, I installed a sealed bearing on the T-90 transmission and sealed the leak points on the shift tower. . .
















While I had it all apart, I replaced the intermediate shaft in the Dana 18 transfer case.  You can see the side-by-side new and old parts comparison. . .












The stained handles on the tools weren't holding up very well so I ended up painting them green. . .





Another Memorial Day just before the parade. . .






Our first trip to the Black Hills area of South Dakota. . .














Following that trip, I pulled the engine and got serious about the rear main seal leak.  While out, I also cleaned up the top and replaced the broken piston rings.  I pulled the crank shaft this time and tried a whole new technique.  I got it to seal pretty good, but it still leaks a bit after really pushing the engine.  Such is life with an old engine and a rope style rear main seal...

During the winter I got a little bored.  The projects moved indoors.  I rebuilt an original style fuel pump and a few Carter WO carburetors...













As springtime arrived, I was pretty busy on another Willys project, but still found time for this one.  Here it is tucked away in my temporary paint booth.







Another trip up north to the Black Hills Run...






Some very interesting conversations arise with this group of passionate Flat Fender folk.

 




Time to upgrade the old Leaf springs after finding a couple broken leafs...






2016 Fall Colors Tour.  The mountains were on fire this year.

I miss the rides too, Oilly.  And I miss the Peeps just as much.
