Found a little coolant leak from the radiator drain petcock. Replaced an O-ring, held 13psi for an hour. Filled with coolant, no more leak!

Looks good! I'm jealous of your disk brakes :sombrero:
Thanks, I have to be careful when braking, the brakes on this thing can put you through the windshield if you press too hard.

Put some miles on the ambo, installed a new to me alcohol stove.

I did get to tow my camper with it for the first time, and even with the automatic tranny it pulls like the camper wasn't even there!
