Howdy!

 

Wanted to post something of substance. Pardon my lag in replying! Perhaps it's bad form/poor ownership but I've no idea what's in the truck engine or transmission wise. I'm guessing/hoping an RD406 - 450. I haven't gotten under the hood yet like I should, just replaced filters/fluids so far.

 

Now! What I did discover and suspicion. While I was doing this decking project I found that at some point in the past the frame was cut and welded then a sleeve bolted on. I'm suspicious that this truck used to be tandem rear axle/longer and it was cut down. Originally it was purchased/used at Kooskia Airport ID until 2004! 

 

Regards,

Trooper.

Great Job!

Appreciate it. 😁

I'm very pleased with how it came out. It'll be even better after the wood dries out and I can seal/paint!

 

Regards,

Troop.

Hey- no problem, Trooper. Deck looks real good. It probably was a tandem at one time. If you can find the serial number I think you can get a Line Setting Ticket with original specs. from the Wisconsin Historical Society website.

I have my serial number but I'm not having much luck with it.

My serial no. is; "FD 109807 F"

I'll go look for a VIN when I get a moment.

I'm asleep at the wheel, Trooper.  I said "serial number" when its the VIN you need, as you know.  Canucks usually say "sorry- I owe you a coffee and donut at Timmys!"

The serial number is as close to a VIN as you'll find. The BMV probably combined the model with the serial for a VIN on the title.  The WHS should be able to get your lineset with that serial.

nice job! yes agree with the sealing of the wood. it will rot in no time.

Looking forward to putting some rust-stop on the bed, some oil based paint, and sealing that wood really good. 

As before mentioned, was just a quick job to get a usable deck. Certainly better than the previous deck! 🙃
