    Hello sir,

    We've been chatting about the old fire truck that you have. How much were you thinking and how long can you hold it?

    Howdy John;
    Any guestimate on when you can ship the exhaust manifolds?
    I see where you had some experience with the Spicer 5+4 setup and was wondering if you had any tips or cautions when I start driving this thing
    around...just looking at the mathematical gear spreads, it seems like a few of the main/aux combinations kind of overlap themselves. I can imagine that hills and weights would drastically change your gear usage, but are there any kind of favorite patterns that works easier than others? Do most drivers just leave the aux in direct and use the top 4 in the main when light, or is the other way around - leave the main in a sweet spot and stir the aux? What about fully loaded (46,000) for my T-850? Once rolling, just use 2 thru 5 main and all 4 in the aux? I would guess that Lo/Lo is hard on drivelines/U-joints, even with a 534 gasser. As you can tell, most of my experience is with 4+2 and 5+2, so not much thinking about those choices...
    Cheers, Carson

    Howdy, thanks for the quick reply. Those things are hard to find, so this will help a lot!
    The parts book says that a 69 T-850 and a 68 C-850 both use the same part number. Both of mine have cracks, and one has some really ugly weld repairs that have completely blown out. I would like to buy both of yours if possible.
    Please call me at 425 236-7926 anytime.
    Thanks, Carson

    Hello, thanks for the information. I really appreciate it. Now see my constraints and I think I can get what I want for less. I appreciate your input and if I come across as argumetive that's not my intention. I'm rediciosly curious and ask lots of questions

    Yes everything on that truck is for sell, it's an Eaton 17,500 I think. Single speed with 6.50 gears and Detroit no spin def. Trans is a Spicer 5 speed, don't remember the model number at the moment, have a new Muncie pto for the trans that never was installed.
