  4. I'd look at the last 3 times they were certified and look at the "As Found" readings they may not even needed adjustment

  6. And that will keep you looking 60 for a long time Keep moving or they try to throw dirt on you
  7. When the oil patch and pipe line building was shutdown a lot of tools showed up at pawn shops and on e-bay I got a 3/4 Proto torque wrench for 100 off e-bay

  12. I had to drag this old thread out again because I ran across a paper written about the subject.

It's still my favorite pick up and I've had many since The lift and the 36" tires were cutting edge back then for a big three truck let alone a binder Made 4" inch lift blocks and had a local spring guy re-arch the springs 4" Ended up putting in later model 3/4 ton axles to get more beef in the rear end and disc brakes in the front After the rust got it I took the doors off and used it for fire wood harvesting for years Finally the the frame gave out and I sold the drive train the 304 still ran like new

  17. One of the few photos I have of the 1100D, that would be about 1980 Squatting in the rear she was loaded with a pallet of brick for the snow storm Needed to have lots of weight in the back the Power- Loc rear end didn't like to un-lock in low traction conditions It started life with the Maine Forest Service had a block heater for the low temps never needed it just pull the manual choke and she fired every time
  18. I don't think so I didn't take to many photos back in those days

  24. I thought the Good to hear from you! Have a great Thanksgiving day! had special modifications like water cooled manifolds and such. It seems like cat 3208 marine engines could be had up to 400 hp. I would think they don't have to worry about lug conditions in marine engines
