Centramatics all on....tires and wheels swapped over, going to fire it up tomorrow, pull it out and wash it off. I might use it for Memorial Day if the 370LE Is not ready. Regards, BobClick image for larger version

Here you go Paul. A few years ago the company agreed to make a run of the then obsolete Steer Axle balancers of us owners of the classics. I believe I committed to 20 sets at the time. They made more and the fronts are still available. Centramatic made me distributor at that time and I can have them drop shipped to you and safe you a few $$

The 325LE is all original, I checked the compression 3 years ago....all about 170 across the board. If I were going to do an add on it would definitely be the addition of a 4L85 transmission with a US shift controller. Regards, Bob

That's purdy! You need a clear cover since it's a shame to cover that up.

Time to sell the 325LE…..I’ve finished with it and need the room in the shop for the 360 project that I’m looking to start. Will be posting an ad when we return from Idaho. Regards, Bob

Too bad that the buyer I had for you just bought one, since you told him you were not interested in selling it. It's all about timing isn't it.

I’m not worried about it…..there will be another buyer soon. It’s probably the nicest 325LE available to buy. Regards, Bob

So, a half way decent July 4 th weekend….rain 50%. The 370LE performed flawlessly. We’re going full blast on the final touches with the 396XL. Blast off is this Sunday, stopping in WI. to have a look at the 360 diesel that’s for sale…..oh nooooooo.! Kota’s given me some input on what to check for chassis wise. I’m bringing my checkbook……dammmmm that’s dangerous. I have to do a quick alignment on the 396XL Saturday morning and I am still waiting on the replacement antifreeze bottle for the 8.0 quiet diesel generator. If Cummings Northeast doesn’t come through I’ll take my spare generator apart and steal the bottle from that one. Looking forward to selling the 396XL and the 325LE in August when we get back.
