Good luck and have fun. Cummins is by far my favorite diesel. 210-260hp 6bta mechanical marine models are one of the best diesels around and I have the most confidence in these engines on the salt. I would have no problems traveling the entire west coast on that engine. I've known a few boats to travel days and days w/o powering down logging major hours idling and underway. My crab boat put that engine to the test, heavily loaded still able to reach cruise rpm with ease.

If the powerstroke was IDI with a mechanical injector pump, that would be the next best thing. You just can't pull over on the side of the road on the ocean.

Tim Jones' pulling truck is a Ford with a commonrail cummins FYI.

Yeah, it's a longbox. I wish it was a shorty.. but what can you do.

Update for today... Found a line on a brand new Helix 2 camshaft. These are backordered and hard to come by.

My a/c compressor arrived today as well. Transmission lines removed and transmission plugs off. Hopefully pull the tranny tommorrow. Found a guy on craigslist w/ some destroked motor mounts for $150. Hoping to snag those.

Hey Andrew, I'll give you $7,500 for the truck as is. Or trade you even up for mine...

I'm looking for a crewcab to haul the little monster around.

Sweet rig, if you come across another deal like that, let me know!!!
