1956 IH Engine installation - the truck is WHOLE again!

                                      The power plant is finally re-united with the truck!!!

                                          Inline 6 in all it's glory, with transfer case:



                    The engine was delivered on a pallet, which was too wide for the engine hoist - 
                                    so it had to be cut down narrow enough to get the hoist around it.



With the pallet cut down, the engine is secured to the hoist. I always use straps - 
much easier to get the engine situated and easy to get around accessories.


                                                                  The bare bones....




And 10 minutes after, it's IN!


Time now for the radiator and cooling system, battery and wiring, 
carburetor and gas lines, transfer case and  driveline....
