One more thing...when I told JT5.9 that I've only paid $1150US each for both the Dodge truck and motorhome, he was flabbergasted with the low price. He told me the very powertrain, NOT including the rest of the truck will fetch $2,500 US in his neck of the woods.

So if you want a cheap Cummins and transmission, come to the Great White North.

Cheers
Sidekick Tony

Yup, save on the unit and spend the difference on gallons or liters of Liquid Wrench breaking all the rusty bolts loose!

Actually, there is so little steel holding anything together, one good tug with the fork lift should seperate the body from the frame, cab and front end. That's what the guy doing the conversion does; use a reciprocating saw and a fork lift.

Sounds like my kind of wrenching!

This was me, some 12 years ago, removing some Alfa Romeo parts...
