  1. Hard to say but if you look at the steering piston behind left front tire that would make this a 5020. Never heard of 6V conversions, but I'm sure someone tried it.
  2. The 5020 series were well known for their extremely strong gear cases. In fact there are articles written about them and there legendary strength. Kinzie made a kit to install 8V71 or 855 Cummins when these tractors were new. It was a hold over from the 2 Cylinder days of high tourque impact from the fireing of just 2 cylinders. Remember these are the same engineers of the 2 cylinder era who designed the "First Generation" John Deeres. I will look for the article and post it if I can figure out how to. But a 318 HP Detroit or 350 HP Cummins installed back in the late 60's and still working toady is a testament to strength and durability. A 4020 had the same stamina but its not rated for that engine for sure. The 5000 series was a much bigger tractor. This being said we all know of 175 or 200 HP 4020's earning there keep
  3. Williams Diesel in Ocala, Fl are the Small diesel Guru's. Have a 03 with a 7.3 they chipped for us. Has 310,00 on it now. Just put 3 injectors in it. same turbo. Truck pulls 38' Gooseneck all the time. 2 high pressure oil pumps, not sure why, 1 water pump, 1 radiator. The truck just goes & goes. Suppose to be @ 425 H.P. been this way since it had 30,000 on it. Gets @ 15 MPG
  4. Sounds like an Awesome project. Why not go for it? Its a toy. What do you have to lose besides time? Any investment could be sold/traded off if it didn't work
  5. Manchester Auto glass 603 622 6737. They have been a huge help for our Cabover fleet. As for parts, Buy a parts truck. Online, ebay. Some things are available at a "Good" dealer.
  6. Ok. Now I see the pic your talking about. That would be a cool Transtar to have in the collection
  7. Another source you might try is Bill Jones in Bow, N.H. 603 496 8802
  8. My 8 yr old Son watches that show. Its his favorite show. I like Jamie Davis & some of his crew. However, if I were up there and needed help you bet id be calling Al Quirring. From an O/O standpoint he seems much more reasonable.
  9. Red, Black, sometimes they had the 3 button set up
  10. Is this the Astro from Westmoreland, N.H.?
  11. Not to be disrespectful but how does that "thing" look anything like a 9670? That thing is just homely.
  12. You may want to bring a Battery along with that fresh gas if your planning on firing it up to load it.
  13. Mack was doing it for years and years. But yes they did make Cat powered Superliners. Also with Cummins & 2 stroke Detroits. You may need a bigger radiator. Someone else on here I'm sure could tell ya for sure. Local man had one with a factory KTA. But he did repower it later in life with a B.C. 3. Friends tell me I should repower my WS with an E7. But I'm not giving up the E9
  14. Yes, Why? everybody has their dream. But a good running E7 would be better and better MPG. If you have a Hankering for a Cay at least go 3406C. Your SuperDog will be ashamed being pussy powered
  15. Lately ive had BAD luck with Wix filters. Now I run older Equipment. Newest thing I own is a 97. Wix filters have had plastic in them, paint chips. Fuel and Oil alike. So ive been buying Fleetrite lately.
  16. That rig is cool. Remember, a machine is only as dangerous at its operator
  17. Sad thing is when this truck was new these girls MOMs were just kids!! Don't believe ive ever seen a 4 headlight F model before
  18. Very interesting. All I ever heard about em was negative. Most folks thought of em as 90nothings. Nice to see they weren't a bad engine after all
  19. Ive been told repeatedly that B.C, Cummins & 2 stroke Detroit parts are "OBSOLETE." I'm sick of being told that. Just have to do more looking now a days
  20. All that's missing is the exterior sun visor. Beautiful truck!!
