and some more pics. after superbowl started with a good wash and a bit of disassembly. rear seat and stand incorrect, if anyone has correct parts shoot me a message. gears are pretty sharp but the owner is ok with that, so I believe we will just leave them as is. are the pinion gear semi-steel, or regular steel? I would like to build them up some.

A few surprises exposed last night. no weep holes here! busted exhaust manifold, along with a nice crack. more rust than expected on fenders. fenders are simple fixes though

My new favorite set of tools. 8 point deep impact up to 1.25 inch. makes for fast disassembly

Macs hardware in Fargo has a variety of stuff like that as does Northern Tool and Harbor Freight also in Fargo although I think those 2 are national chain stores.

You may be right about Macs. I haven't been in there to look and the sizes above 3/4" may be standard impact sockets in 3/4" drive. Northern Tool has a 16 piece set of standard and deep impact sockets from 3/8" to 13/16". 7/8" to 2" are standard impact socket in 3/4" drive. Harbor Freight does have a 13 piece deep impact socket set in 1/2" drive with sizes from 7/16" to 1 1/4". I may question the quality as they are currently on sale for $24.99.

The HF impacts believe it or not are decent quality. I've beat on a set for a few years and no complaints.

I have my fair share of hf tools. Not all are bad, warranty is good. But no wrenches or screwdrivers from hf, just not good enough for that
