      No . He bought back the two big ore trucks that went to Sparwood and has rebuilt them which are now for sale.One with a Cummins  KTA600 and one with a DD8V149T.both with Clark 121 rears.

      Ahhh that makes sense ! I heard He was asking the parts guys about an mp 10  I thought maybe he was dabbling in building another several trucks !He was likely thinking on a re power for one or the other!

      Hi Bob,

      I do not recall Brad but I may have talked to him, memory is not what it used to be. I did hear of someone casting the rear cab mount, was that Brad? It was pricy and not machined, just raw casting.

      Really could use a front engine mount. I made a steel strap that wraps under the aluminum mount to stop the engine decent if it cracks though again.
