  • Hey Alex,
    Good to see you're back, I was hoping it would happen sooner or later.
    Sorry you've had so much drama going on, and glad to hear you are back on track.
    Very much looking forward to seeing what you do next on the Carryall, or any of your projects.

    • Alex, great to see your post on the PWA site and keep fighting MS. I'm also getting away from Facebook and use it only to communicate with my old high school friends. Dylan and I still want a ride in your Carryall when you make it to Iowa.


      • sure wish I had a skid steer :)


        • Finally... finally back to working on this thing. Shop is almost all the way setup and ready for work. Still running some machines off of an extension cord and have picked up some more toys while I am at it, including a beat but cool old Cincinnati No 2 Vertical Mill with a 7.5 hp motor.. will be cool to get it under power finally.

          So, ended up buying another Carryall.... and trading it for a fully built Allison 1000.

          This one has a full billet converter
          ALL of the Updates for seals, valves, and bearings from Allison themselves.
          Has a shift kit and E-valve body upgrade.
          Core is an SAE 3 from a 2005 Kodiak 4500... she sweet. About a $9500 unit.

          Working with a post lift is also a life changing experience for me.

          1942 WC53 Carryall in progress.
