Back End Teardown

Once the engine was removed we had to pull the the bulkhead/ cab off. This was able to be done in one lump which made life easy. Underneath the cab floor sits the two fuel tanks which actually look in great shape! The transfer box could then be dropped out, along with the rear prop shaft. Then it was on to the rear floor which is made of a steel grip plate. At some point the original self tapper fasteners had been replaced by small nuts and bolts which had corroded so badly the only way to remove them was by drilling them out. Apart from that everything came out or off quite smoothly.
