  1. Its actually just a tick NE of Collins. about a mile east and 1.5 north of town
  2. This thing has had a turbo on it its whole life. I cant hurt it any worse than the idaho cowboys who used to own it........lol
  3. Ive seen numerous times and places where its been discussed about the Garrett T606 turbo for the 282 diesels. Hard parts are unobtanium and last i knew only seals and bearings were available. My 560 ate its turbo about 4 years ago and got towed to the shed to sit til i decided what i wanted to do with it. I had read that an Allis Chalmers turbo would work so I got busy researching. Basically what i came up with was the turbo for the D19, 190XT and some 7000 series was what i needed. Took the gamble and ordered on. It bolted right up to the manifold flange and then after that everything was dif
  4. Thats gonna be alot of pictures.......lol Last time i counted i had 57
  5. Pretty much all finished up. Took best of show in the non restored category at the NE Missouri Threshers show.
  6. Back in the shop for the last little bit to do. Its fender fab day....lol fenders and drum lights should finish this thing off just in time for the NEMO in Missouri
  7. She made it to her first show. Went up to Cedar Valley threshers just outside Charles City Iowa on saturday. She definately had alot of lookers! Still have to finish fenders and mount lights along with a little more paint stripping in places. Next show will be in Shelbina Mo in two weeks and the Little cane will be finished by then. The manifold had to get swapped out because theres an internal air leak on it and we just cant get it to run right.
  8. Finally got my butt back in gear and got this thing running today. If i knew how to attach a video i would, but since i dont you only get the photo of it right before it went out the door and got pull started.....lol second pic is the high wheel and low wheel cane for size comparison
  9. Oh man Tony, you have officially broken my heart. I cant believe you're painting that nice original truck. Im sad.......I'm gonna go drink
  10. Worked a little bit the last couple days. started off with lug removal from a set of 42 inch wheels to put them on the 66's for the big cane. Took 2 widetread drawbars to make the narrow one for the big cane. 66 inch steel and 42 inch rubber tire canes had longer drawbars to make sure they went out back past the edge of the tire. extended the length then narrowed it down
  11. The top of the hood is right at 75 inches from the floor The center line of the crank coming through the bolster is about 2 inches below my belly button and Im 6'4.........
  12. Put in about 6 hours today and feel i got alot done. got the engine slid forward and bolted down, finished up rad connections, put on external oil lines, cleaned out tranny case and installed top cover with shifter. Set the hood and tank up there to see how it looks.....lol This has a cast iron oil pan, and only 1 ive ever seen. All i can say is i was nervous it wasn't going to clear the ball/socket mount for the spindle wishbone. not alot of room there. for the short folks i took a pic of the hood so they can see its a correct early flat hood.......lol
  13. 90 foot pounds done in 3 increments. put some oil on the stud threads .017 clearance hot but if you're doing it cold about 19 to 20 thousandths
  14. Finally getting back to this thing after surgery...... tryin to take it easy and do small stuff so been working on getting the engine buttoned up.
  15. it was finished off long before that..........lol
