Looks like a 4bt go'in in an A Model!
Looks like it'll be a good fit. That 4BT outa a Hostess truck?
The 4bt is going into an EGX model because the original EN330 engine is going in for a full rebuild. (Once I save my pennies). So this is a temporary fix to get her running before June 29th. The 4bt was used in the oil fields in a sand conveyor ND, and was purchased after a company thought it was bad...turns out it was not bad...just a bad mechanic lol. It is definitely a tight fit..had to change the alternator bracket to fit in between the fenders and the steering box. Ya never know...I might like her better as a diesel! Ha! Especially if Gus is going to haul antique tractors to the local shows!

hello, truck looks great!! what type of paint did you use to paint the frame?
Posted January 27, 2017
I used: Single-stage Euro Race Green paint and I mixed a leaf green single stage with it to get the right color green (the whole truck will be this color). If you order it by the gallon, it will also recommend the hardener, and clear coat most commonly used with it. It was about 67.00 per gallon, and my truck will take about 3 to 4 gallons because I am doing light/sanded multiple coats. Tracy
