As far as the engine, I would check all the exhaust gaskets and lock rings while it is out. Lot easier to work on exhaust when it is out of the truck.

I'm not attached to the sleeper so I could take some pictures of it if you want me to. Just tell me if you want me to. You don't want to put that sleeper on your nice looking truck do you?
what are your plans for the sleeper, i may be interested, Thanx, Jon

Yea I think the frame would break off behind the sleeper. The guy I bought the truck from said the people who had it before him got it reposesed because they owed a good bit of money for motor work. So he bought it and wanted to make it a over the road truck. Since the frame was corroded on his truck he bugged my father to buy my truck. So we almost sold my truck to him because he wanted to swap motors. Luckly he didnt come back to buy it. The motor must be destine for my truck. He also told me the previous owner used to haul 120,000 pounds with that single aluminum frame. I dont think I would have wanted that much weight on a single frame. I would love to see some pics of it when it was new. Thats all I know about it.
looks like it was a sweet truck before the corrosion got to it. That trunion looks like it would tear off the frame under a hard pull LOL. Does the truck have any story behind it that you know?
