Are you going to put the factory PTO floor lever in (cut the tunnel) or try and use the pull lever below the steering column? Good stuff!
Will probably stick with the pull lever under the dash until I repaint the interior. Have to fix the paint from the leaky brake master and paint the tunnel red anyways.

Is the motor in your 45 original to the truck or is it a transplant from another early 45? It looks very familiar to me. Like it might have been the original motor out of @jomelo’s 45.
I too have a teal colored engine…

However if anyone has engine #:
F 178759 I’m a buyer as it’s the original engine for my ‘63 SWB FHT.

What’s in my ‘63 is F193342, block dated 40201 - Feb. 1, 1964.

What should be in it per the VIN tag is F175782 - rig VIN is 13048 so 1000+ later than yours so your engine S/N should be F17XXXX or even earlier. What’s in yours?

Thank you very much for taking the time to help me out. I think your photos and info can get me started. I'll take a look at them today. I'll let you know my findings when it's all sorted out.
