Welcome to the Barn Scav, from New Zealand (at the ass end or the world). Good to see interest in the "big trucks".

Well, I shouldn't admit it but, I think it will take more than this for me

Maybe others too? No, not a chance!

My grandfather had several Ford dumps that I drove in the summers. I still have one of them. They all worked the same way. One of the levers engaged the PTO to drive the hydraulic pump and the other one had three positions to work the hoist cylinder, up, hold, and down. With the engine running and the tranny in neutral, push the clutch pedal down and then engage the PTO lever the same as if you were putting the tranny in gear. Release the clutch and then the other lever will operate the hoist. The hydraulic cylinders had a plug in the top which is where you could check/add fluid with the bed in the down position. Never place any part of your body under the bed when it is in the raised position.

I found what turned out to be an old Autolite battery cable sign in a soon to be demolished John Deere shop. The whole interior, including the sign, had been painted with silver paint. Some searching on the interweb gave me the idea of an SOS pad and hot water. It worked better than I had hoped. Light rubbing and frequent dips into the hot water was key. Wish I could post pictures with this phone. Not smart enough. PM me with your cell# and I can text pics for proof.
