  1. Had my truck and empty flatbed trailer towed the day before Thanksgiving from Oak Grove MO to Kc peterbilt,about 50 miles bill was $5104.00.
  2. I had 77 4070B.318 with a 13 spd 4.11 rears.5" straight pipes could be heard 3 miles away but wasn't any louder in the cab than with mufflers. Loved that truck.

    Good friends with the guy that owns that truck. Matter of fact I was supposed to have taken it to the Louisville truck show but couldn't make it. Former owner spent 100 grand on it then passed away.
  5. As to the comment above about Cat parts I can testify that it's completely true.I just got through this week with a 98 day rebuild of a 6NZ.Parts were almost nonexistent. I had to source at least 50% myself as Cat couldn't find them.No turbos,no cams,no rockers,no front covers,no injectors. I spent days on the phone calling dealers to find this stuff. At least I still got my Cat warranty. Where did all the parts go?

    Buying parts

    I have a C15 cat in a Caterpillar shop being rebuilt (only 49000 miles on platinum rebuild).Injectors from cat are 55 days out,cylinder kits coming from 3 different places,rod brgs from another,mains from yet another.Told me that I should be thankful thankful that I don't have a new engine as there are no parts in the pipeline and no idea when there will be.
