  1. I was told by an older mechanic around here my grandfather use to do the same thing. Throw a hand full right into the intake.
  2. I like the little plow setup. Problem is it gives me ideas my wallet doesn’t agree with.
  3. My idea for the hood welt is the rubber cowl molding from a kenworth. It’s from the trucks with the 2 flat windshields. It’s 1 1/8” wide and I think 3/8” thick. I haven’t tried it yet so idk if it will be to thick or not.
  4. Idk what that is. It’s just a small piece welded in from factory by the looks of it. Kinda like an extra brace? I’ve seen sever of them throughout the cab
  5. I removed my heater assembly which cleared out some space so the floor dimmer is fine with me. I will save these other switches for probably forever though. Now I just have to do some figuring where to cut the hole in the firewall and what boot I’m gonna use.
  6. I got 2 columns when I got. I decided to use this one due to the 18” wheel, other has a 20”. They where both from mr garbage trucks. I took the extra apart and Larry was right. Very ugly exposed shaft and spacers. After further sitting on my garage chair I realized they also had 900 series (non canceling) turn signal switches. Same as my B but they have dimmer switch. I was able to switch the clamp and bracket to my already wired switch. It raised the switch and moved it forward.
  7. I really don’t know what it is. I’m guessing just decoration. It it be nice to move the blinker that much further up though
  8. The hardest part of the whole project would prob be hooking up the air system for the trailer if the truck is not set up for one. If it is, it’s just a matter of moving it’s location so not that big of a deal. The hydraulics may or may not work but that could also be as easy as just changing the pump out and still use the pto that came with the truck.
  9. Sorry had phone held the wrong way when taking pictures I guess.
  10. I got my column all mounted and I’m happy with the wheel placement. It’s very comfortable from driver seat. Now my question is. What is this bell shaped piece on top of the column? Can it be removed and if so how? If I can remove it I will be able to mount my turn signal switch and trolly valve higher up.
  11. I like seeing the ways guys overcome issues with these old trucks as much as the truck itself
  12. My b67 had 2 tanks just like that. I don’t remember off the top of my head but I know it was the same size as my stearling tank I have on now. Also same as freightliner tanks I looked at. I’ll check later for ya. About 24” I think.
