The first day of the conversion.

This first part of the conversion actually took a long three day weekend . Both Jeff and Brandon took Friday off from work and they had hoped to get much farther but things did not go very well for them. I was gone and they were worn out and grumpy by the time I got back.
Things laid out ready to go. All nice and neat as you can see. One thing Jeff is is very neat and orderly.
The important tool for the weekend a wench cut in half.
Things like alternators and such had to all come off the engine.
The tiny nasty plugs that took three days to pull off.
One of the new fuel lines installed.
The nasty plug still in the engine. I know I am out of order but then there were four places they had to get plugs or lines loose.
Some where in here was another fuel line to take out.
See I told you they had to take stuff off the engine.
Brandon the contortionist was trying to reach a plug. Too bad we do not have pictures of Jeff trying to do this.
An antique wrench they were trying to use because it was small enough to get in the spot.
Those nasty plugs just seemed to multiply.
Brandon after finally getting one off.

Through all of this they were taking out extra plugs and rerouting fuel lines so that the diesel and oil can each have their own feed lines into the engine.
