Default Spring build comes early

Decided to do part of my build early. I have a extra truck to drive and I have off work for the next week. Works for me.

After dealing with all the other stuff today, I started way later then I wanted to.

Got it all parked in the shop.

The HB bolt came off real easy. I heated it a bit, gave it a shot of penetrating, put the breaker bar in place and turned the key. Done.

I thought you already broke that HB bolt loose a little while ago? Or am I thinking something different?

I have to go to the dentist, but after that I'm in the shop. I think I have about 6 to 8 hours of work to go.
