big job is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Vidio

This is something everybody in here should watch. Now it is positive
there is real talent and craftmanship in here. Satisfaction comes when
you work with a 50 year old truck each day side by side with new
ones and the work gets done. Comments like the other day on the scale
guy behind me comes up with a frown its got air brakes?? Yep got
power steering to and its paid for! Me not being a wise guy to him, i said
well maybe you were born to late and missed out on the good stuff.

Agreed, that is a really clean conversion, can't believe how smooth that shifts! What are the plans for use of the truck?

It's really just a big toy. I have no plans to use it commercially, it has historic plates so I can't legally haul anything. I was motivated to do the conversion so I could drive it on the freeway and keep up with the big boys!
I drove it to the ATHS (American Truck Historical Society) national truck show in Pleasanton Ca. this past May. I use it around town on weekends (any excuse to drive it) and take it to work friday's (36 mile round trip)

No cutting but I did have to do a little hammer work on the driver's side of the factory recess in the firewall to clear the head on the cummins
