Rear Axle (Dana 80)So what is the cutaway actually donating at this point? Just the front end and wiring/dash?
Entire Fuel System including tank
Larger Master cylinder and have a spare hydroboost
All the van specific duramax engine bolt ons (intake/turbo tubes, dipsticks, intake box, brackets, etc...) which is hard stuff to find.
A spare brand new turbo
Core support cooling stack (it has a brand new radiator)
Front clip(with wiring harness and bumper
probably the engine access floor and firewall opening for the engine cover.
But really what it does is allow me to use the cutaway cab to produce a running version of the final chassis, I'll be able to solve all the problems on that vehicle before I have to lay a hand on the hightop. That has a lot of value to me.
The cutaway frame will be scrap... and in the end the cutaway cab will be also, and that is a bit of a waste that I hadn't(totally) planned but I can live with it.
On the positive I'll have the entire rolling chassis from the hightop including full engine and transmission to sell of and recoup some expense.
I can sell off doors, front brakes, injectors, and whatever other leftovers there are...it's not a perfect system but it should be workable.
