  1. What if the radio don't work?
  2. How do they run a subwoofer without electricity?
  3. A c50 with the 6 is OK for local work with moderate loads. Haul 4 tons of gravel instead of 8 and you should ok. Plan on cleaning the fuel system, installing new points/etc and working on the brakes. The 366 has no more power than the 350 but it will last alot longer. Back when everyone ran straight trucks here the chevy grain trucks with 350s were always breaking down. The 366 were tough and much more reliable. We pull some steep grades coming up out of this valley and work a truck. The international engines held up best but the body gave more trouble (doors, etc) Thx-Ace
  4. An engine from a 1680 would be easier.
  5. I like it but there isn't a vehicle I own worth 13,000!
  6. 42 1/2" inches inside 48 1/2" inches outside These measurements are the bucket mounting dimensions on my westendorf wl-42 loader. Thx-Ace
  7. These days I just take what I can get. Availability is limited.
  8. If I had a working hot pressure washer or steam cleaner... Molasses is a great description. Here's a pic I took this morning. She's a 74 loadstar 1600 with a 345 and 5 speed. The yellow/black is special order for sunshine biscuit company, sunshine biscuit yellow! She was a fresh trade in when dad bought her in 80 and had the dump bed installed. We hauled grain with her to town for decades. Now she sometimes hauls rice to the bin but mostly hauls gravel, dirt, litter, etc with the short boards. Since the flood over two years ago she has stored metal parts that were evacuated from the flood. The odometer shows 150,xxx but hasn't worked in almost 40 years. I'd say she has 300,000 on her. The motor runs good but has a sound that I think is a badly worn piston. Thx-Ace
  9. That lady shoots terribly slow with my connection. A friend had an 1895 in 7.62x54 a couple decades ago. I think it brought a couple grand back then. Thx-Ace
  10. Gas tank. It's a 74 loadstar 1600. Dad bought her in 1980. I'll take a pic tomorrow. Thx-Ace
  11. I think my wife has some washing soda. I am finding all kinds of crap in there. I guess these are parts of funnels? Thx-Ace
  12. Rust doesn't seem to be the problem. It's all gummed up. If I put rocks in there it would make asphalt... I'm thinking put gas ot alcohol in it. Shake like mad and suck it out. Thx-Ace
  13. I've seen very old dump trucks with a similar blade.
  14. I was having troubles with one of my loadstars and removed the gas tank. It's not bad rusty but it's got gum, dirt, trash in the bottom. I'm trying to remove it through the sending unit hole but it's not very productive. Any other way to get this stuff out? Thx-Ace
  15. Seeing the square body chevy 4 door in the background it's probably in the south. They don't rust out down here.
