  1. That looks like an awesome project. I’ve been slightly looking into making something similar. Not sure if I’m talented enough to do something like that. Josh
  2. Thank you very much. It is Definitely a work of art. If you need any parts for an O4 I might be able to help you. I still have another O4 without the sheet metal in peices.
  3. What an amazing project. A grand total of 750hrs to make this O-4 look absolutely amazing. I am very happy with the end result on this one. I am really hoping all this nonsense ends soon so I can get this thing to a show. I won second place in our local competition and now I am entered in the Delo national competition. With that being said I need everyone's help. Please go to https://delotrcvoting.com/Voting/Details?entryId=147 and vote for Josh Jorgensen. You can vote 3 times every 24 hours.

  5. The engine is coming along very well. I believe the two hardest parts was had buying a "new" crank for it and dealing with the bearing sizes (and prices). Luckily it came together. The second hardest (more stressful) part in my opinion was installing the cam bearings by ourselves. it was challenging but again it came out nicely. A more interesting activity was home polishing the "new" crankshaft. We bought 600-1000 grit emery cloth, wrapped it around each journal, used some kroil as lubricant, and spun the emery cloth with a belt. It worked pretty good. A couple of deeper
  6. The "cowl" (correct me if I'm using the wrong terminology) was too far gone to be saved and was being held together by a peice of aluminum sheet metal. I decided it would be best to cut out a new one. I will not be drilling the holes for a number of reasons.
  7. The fenders, hood, and engine covers after being sand blasted.
  8. I have fallen way behind on my post on here. Although it has been a long time and a lot has happened, hopefully I can update you with some pictures. Josh Patchwork of the fenders.
  9. I believe thats going to be the plan. Its so original. It still has the original water temp block off plate and the orchard style in cab fuel shut off. Josh
  10. I have found some major issues inside the motor of this thing. It looked pretty clean when i pulled the oil pan off and i think i spoke to soon when i said it looks good. As i was removing the number 1 rod bearing cap (which was saftey wired with bailing wire) 2 small pieces of spun bearing fell out. All 4 rod bearings were spun which leads me to believe that it got rebuilt with the wrong size bearings. It pretty much almost destroyed both the rods and the crank so those will have to go to a machine shop to be ground. Good news though. I found a O4 with really straight skins and a rebuilt moto
  11. My mom has a really cool 2018 chevy cruze diesel that has a manual transmission. Not the fastest way of getting around but fun and really efficient. It gets 35-40 mpg in town. It will also pull any gear you put it in.
