Thanks go out to everyone affiliated to this website.
My build was planned on day one for a diesel conversion. However I can't find
a 1989 12v cumming 6bt. WOW
I bought 1970 4x4 for $600 but it wasn't any good.

Re: Workaholic

That's cool. I always find a lot of satisfaction in using my truck for what it was meant for. Much more fun than tooling around and babying it.

Re: Workaholic

The Eaton 410 grs back axle was in good shape. I still waned to change the wheel bearing and seals, Very tough to find and expensive. Got them all off amazon for $300. Them got a disc brakes kit here in town.
