  1. Get a used or repossessed Snap On from a dealer they aren't cheap but you can get parts for them and they  Will last you a life time. I bought a new Snap On top box in 1970 for $300 traded in 1990 for a repossessed  Snap On bigger  box and he gave me $300 for my trade in  30 years of  use for nothing 

  2. 40 by 60 16 sidewalls 2inchs close cell foam on sidewalls 3inch at rafters and above new in 2018. Heated with 80,000 furnace cooled with 3.5 ton central a.c. keep it at 65 in winter and 75 in summer only time doors are open Is to move stuff in or out. It raised my electric  bill 40 dollars a month  in the summer and use less than 800gal l.p. in the winter.  Were located central Illinois.  Was in the shop all day  if I didn't have a.c. would have seating in the house not working in the shop


  3. Installed a400 horsepower 855 in a 4586 it ran for years without any problems. The hardest  part was the hydraulic system  had to get a gear reduction pump  because engine  auxiliary  drive wasn't  heavy enough  to drive pump. Keep in mind that the differential and final drives are 1466and 966 parts. Added 11 inches in frame if I  remember right  used low mount turbo manifold. If you let the air out of front tires it makes it a lot easier to work on.
