Re: The Ulitmate Craigslist find thread

Trucks like these are begging for a 6.0 with the Allison 6-9 speed auto and use the splitter rear end.I hate seeing these trucks waist away.I hope in the next few years i can buy a few and stick the 6.0 with the auto and make them worth driving again with new power steering and hydro boost power brakes.These trucks can be Re engineered for long term use.Removing the gas take and putting a fuel sell on the side of the truck Update all the running gear.you have a truck that will get good gas mileage plus it will be a dream to drive

Re: The Ulitmate Craigslist find thread

I wouldn't stick with a gas engine for something like that LCF. A project like it would need a new engine, so I'd try to find a Duramax V8 with an Allison.

Re: The Ulitmate Craigslist find thread

Even when I'm not looking for parts for my truck, I keep finding more trucks. And why do I always find the flatbeds? https://atlanta.craigslist.org/eat/c...501537539.html The no title situation always scares me.

I've got a different idea for the LCF, lol.

Re: The Ulitmate Craigslist find thread

So your saying the 6.0 LS with the Allison is not a good combo for the C40--C80 1964--66 trucks.Can you explain why the 366 or 6.0 LS engine would not be a good combo.The Duramax V8 with an Allison.its a little pricey.I just want to know what are the take a way's from using the gas to using the Duramax.I've had a 1964 c60 a few years ago love the body stance and the way they looked and how they drove

Can you make the 2 speed slitter work with the Allison

Naaaaaaaah! I'm with Bill on that choice. When I was old enough to ride with my dad in his Astro 95 moving pieces of his farm equipment I used to fall asleep to the sound of the 6-71 under me.

I believe you are referring to a 2-Speed Rear and I've never driven one with an Auto Trans, but I have heard that yes, it is supposed to work.

It's just personal choice. A factory 6.0 LS (364 cubic in.) is only rated for 380 lb.-ft. of torque. That's more than most engines from the '60s, but even the earliest Duramax makes around 500 lb.-ft. Honestly, I can't speak as to what would fit with a split rear end, but you could attempt to contact Advanced Adapters. They claim they make the widest selection of adapters. Even if they would help on that kind of project, you (or whomever) would be the first ones to do it. You might have better luck getting an adapter made for mating the Duramax to a manual transmission that can handle the torque. You can take all of this talk into consultation, because I really know very little about trucks larger than a C30/GMC 3500.

I played mix-an-match with a 392, 4 Bbl IH and an Allison in a truck with an Eaton 2 speed axle.. Just back off a tiny bit and shift. It wokled fine.
