Manufacture of the bed support with recycling of metals.
Three thousand two hundred and forty hammer blows for the rear wings and pushed to four tonnes.
It doesn't look like that.
Like all of you, no exception with the steering wheel.

This morning, two hundred kilometers to find my happiness.
It is not beautiful to see and it does not work but it is mine.

Two weeks before the compressor started, the main failure came from the fuel pump.
My sandblasting station is now ready and working perfectly.

Ps:
It took me five years to get everyone together.
- Sandblaster with control.
- Air purifier.
- Mask and pipes.
- Compressor.

I like to start the engine regularly, tomorrow I have to attach the canister that I use as a fuel tank because there will be movement.
I separate the bed from the frame.

The frame number is also on the back, it is clearly visible as on the front.
The mico brake locking system.
Traces of cuts on the chassis that I have not identified.

I hope this is not going too off topic!

I became convinced that my truck started life as an M724:

It had the Mico Brake system, which I removed and made same as the M715.

The title lists it as 1969. But it did not have a governor.

It did have electronic turn signals, which a 1969 truck would have.

The serial number (10467) is odd for an M715.

It did NOT have a data plate on the dash.

There was no serial number on the right front frame horn.

However, there is a metal bracket welded on the frame over where the
rear serial number may be stamped. I appreciate your pictures, it makes
even more sense. Soon (after COVID 19 is over) I will grind the weld off
of that bracket and see if my serial number matches the title. If not,
I will just stamp the number on the frame. Doubtful this truck is not
kosher. It used to belong to the South Carolina Farm Bureau.

Thanks for the pictures. It helps me too. And... I appreciate yet another
Kaiser Jeep M724 is not on the scrap heap.

Glad that my photos make sense and why not inspire a little.
