they are extremely rare though, our local scrap has a couple, they are pretty beat, and have not run since they showed up( 5-7 years), but they are camo so he still wants like $2000.00... go figure...... we are going to the scrap with a little load of cast friday, i will snap some pics of them

Its ok, rain sucks, we get it probably 200+ days of the year in some form. Yeah, it doesn't get cold and snowy but the rain, everything turns green from the wet slime, Add on the cost of living, sigh.

I've always preferred the horizontal side marker, looks like the truck wants to go faster.

Hey guys if you have a spare 5k laying around you could come get a 5/4 ton mil ambulance with a 6.2. It's been sitting at a used stealership next town over for a couple years. It would make a great work truck but that kind of money on a 27 year old truck (it's an '86 I think) is nuts

Scroll to the bottom to see it.

There was also a guy in Gatineau who was selling off his crew cab collection a couple years ago. he wanted 8K for his '91 V3500 3+3 with 6.2 and 4l80e. I don't think it ever sold

That m1010 is nice, but the price is crazy

Those would make a perfect camper with a re gear to 3.73.

Okay guys, some pics (not in real time....LOL), of doing the short fill in the block. First the crank was installed with the "studded stiffy", used grease to be able to freely spin the crank and insure it is not binding. The next step is to level each side of the block, front to back and side to side (within a 1/16th of an inch). Then it was just to mix the filler and pour it in, tapping with a rubber mallet to ensure the fill is even throughout the water jacket. The short fill, as you can see, is just to the bottom of the frost plug holes.....being a DD/WT, we will install two block heaters in it, so needed the access to the frost plug holes.....now we will just let it sit for as long as possible. Next up should be the custom 18:1 pistons.....J&J.
