Well I did have some pics from the ad up here, but when I found my DATAMOVER account, they deleted my new account I created and deleted the pics with it I think. I am working on this pics again.
I let the tow truck driver remove the drive shaft and he had a little trouble getting the diff end off. The shaft wouldn't slide much at all. By then he had already lost some of the needles from one cap. I will just have to replace it.
The sellers were super nice people to work with. I have been up there almost everyday since the add went up trying to PBlaster the lugs,UJoints and any thing else. Everything actually came off easy. I did put 4 tires on the rear as the old one were very rotted.
I just finished reading the previous owners log book he kept for mods and maint/repairs he had done. It was great to read, but sad when it ended.
I would say the condition good to very good and almost all original with tons of spare parts and hand drawn diagrams,plus all service manuals.
I read some of his notes and he had a torque converter made from an Allison TC or something plus there is a spare TC. I am pretty sure it is a Chevy 475 trans and has the newer Gear Vendor OD behind it. (I have had 3 of them).
Tomorrow I will put some oil in the cylinders and check over air/fuel components and start it from separate fuel container.
I want to wake it up as gently as possible.
It does have a second diesel tank with the filler cap forward of the pass rear wheel with it's own gauge on the dash.
Most items have powered up normally and I suspect most of the other equipment will as well. The engine oil was changed every 3k (per logs) and Diff,Overdrive,trans levels were monitored in his logs.
I will get some pics up soon.
PS-the phone was ringing off the hook while I was there looking it over.(No pressure....)
