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.

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.

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

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

Hey Mike! It's nice to see you back on here! Yep, the Excursion is still going. I had 2 more of the conversion lines crack on it over the last 2 years. I was really thinking of putting a 12v in it I have slated for another project. But I have enough to do. Haha How was the boat business for you last summer?

I really love this truck, I can't help but thinking about how it would look with the front bumper painted white, or wrapped in stainless.

Thanks. I might change the bumper colors before summer. I plan to remove the bumpers to install my winch and do some paint work. I contemplated silver and white but went black because I thought it went better. Although, I've seen some old warn bumpers on these trucks recently painted silver and I really dig the look.

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

The nasty stuff was off the roads and the weather was decent so I broke out the 72. It needs washed really bad though. I had to do a favor for my father in law and I drove it right after a snow storm a while back. The poor truck got covered in sand etc. Then it froze and snowed more so I wasn't able to get it washed. I did get most of it off when driving through the fresh melted snow on the way back though.

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

Next time it snows just drive back to the lumber yard and wait it out. Lol. I wonder if you went there early Nov to "get a few things " and forgot to return to the truck till say April , do you think they would notice ? Free indoor storage ? I may be on to something ��

Boat business is going just fine. It's abt time to get in to the swing of things around here . You have a Instagram account ? I had some cool old school hp in the shop last week check it out if you are on there, 1251 trucks.

Cheers

That's a good idea, but it would probably be gone. That place is pretty high traffic and it would stick right out. :LOL:

Thanks Mike. I used it last week to haul 2 cars, a truck, and to pull a tree over and it's currently loaded with wood. I'm a little PO'd at the Little Larry Valve I used for the air ride though. One of the valves is stuck and it wants to continually air that bag. It's coming off and I'll put my semi truck leveling valve on like I should have from the get go. To drive it home Sunday I aired the tank up enough to get the bag pressure where it needed to be and I didn't turn the compressor on anymore. PITA but it worked.
