Re: 1972 Chevy 4wd Longhorn Project: Never Ending Changes

Dieselwrencher,
I'm super late to this party but what an awesome build! I haven't finished reading through it but will definitely refer to what you've done when I start my Cummins conversion

What's going on Ryan? I haven't been on this board in some time. Just checking in.

Here's a pic I took at Thomas Mitchell Days.

Hey Bud, how's it going? Thanks for the pic. That must have been before the monsoon.

Re: 1972 Chevy 4wd Longhorn Project: Never Ending Changes

I still haven't done any more work to the old girl. Just have been using it. I hauled my cast in a little while ago, and am now working on cleaning radiators etc when I have time. This load was 2960. The tires were at 65psi. My little helper fell asleep on the way back too.

Doesn't look like you have anything on it! What's your GVW?

I can't remember off hand what the GVW is on the tag right now. But with the rear air ride, I can set the ride height where ever I'd like with the way I have it set now. The bags were running around 38psi with the weight on them. It rode like a Cadillac. I should have lowered the bags before I unloaded it because they were almost to the top of their range after I unloaded the junk.

This little guy falls asleep in the most weird positions. I wish I could have gotten a picture of my daughter about 5 or 6 weeks ago. She got out of the semi with me and we put her in one of the combines. I took a trip to town and when my buddy came to turn around he was pointing at something. It was my daughter passed out against the door and side window. He said I moved her but she went back to that spot and she's passed out cold. I told him good enough. Haha
