Ryan's Deuce build

Well here she is. I picked her up yesterday in St Louis and drove her back to Lawton OK. What a long miserable trip that was. For those of you that have never driven a Deuce, they will not do over 60mpg with a tail wind and anything over 40 on any kind of grade is a pipe dream. I broke down twice before even leaving St Louis. once for a blown lower rad hose (got a pretty close match at Auto Zone) and once for a cracked radiator upper hose neck. Fixed the hose neck along interstate 44 with cold steel covered with JB quick weld. Drove about 10 miles with the cap off to build heat so it would set and then put cap on and as not leaked one drip. Ignition also went out but we all know how to get around that. Oh and the reason for the cooling issues was the belt for the water pump was wrong and the pump was not turning all the time. All fixed and no engine damage. The rest of the trip was uneventful. Now that it is home I am going to go through the whole thing and replace all hoses, belts, fluids and everything else that looks sketchy.

Now for some pics

Putting fuel in it to start the trip home.


10 miles later with a blown hose in Auto Zones parking lot. Thats my buddy Chris in the pics
