  1. I have a B615 and it came with the 864. I am not certain but doubt a 615 came from the factory with the 865?
  2. Yes it does! I have had Australian friends come over several times to drive it to shows and I repeat myself telling them to be aware that they don't think they are back home and move over into the left lane! We have had some fun times with a passenger playing with his phone or acting as though he is sleeping when another truck or car passes on the left!. I have had officers come out of the scale houses and walk around to only find no one sitting there.
  3. Here is a picture of Dan and Tex at the ATHS Salem OR show. Dan is everything Mike described. I remember him saying that the E-9 in his truck had the latest revised block just before the E-9 ended production? also for a good laugh go to you tube and see Tex shut the hood on his FL FLD. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eX9ELu_PW3M
  4. you are right about the LTL. Itch put it together 100% correct but he just didn't do the final polish on it. When that truck sold it was a helluva bargain considering how well it was put together.
  5. They were great...…..just don't forget to put the kickstand down when you get out!!!
  6. Yes he and his entire family are the best!! We agreed that this year he was coming out to Plymouth and the Brooks show with me. Hopefully the Brooks show will not be cancelled since it is late August but we will see! You may know this but Mike has suffered from cancer on just about every part of his body and he keeps on defeating it...………..amazing and unreal.
  7. I told this to my bulldog on the 37 BM and when I looked back again I could see a 90wt oil tear in it's eyes!!
  8. Here is the V8 for the Magnum restoration project. Built for me by the Osborne brothers in Wyoming.
  9. I was just thinking the other day when I hooked it to my low deck and loaded the LTH logger (heavy) and the Pete 390 also heavy. I weighed in the low 70's and I went up the Siskiyou mountain doing a steady 65-70...could have done even more in it but a few of the bends I definitely sucked up the seat!!! That truck had unreal power! You could wind it up to 4000rpms and it sounded like a sewing machine. I am not sure if the firing order was modified on that or not??
  10. I just started on restoring the Magnum I have. Osborne's out of Riverton, WY overhauled the E-9 for me. Double frame was rust packed so I went with a single frame replacement. Rebuilt the Neuway.
  11. That was me driving Paddy Ward's V12 KW in the outback on the way home from Alice Springs truck show. We met him that evening at a roadside stop where we all camped in swags! I had never driven a V12 coupled with a 13spd. Paddy said just hammer down and so I did. I was so excited that I left my son standing alongside the road. You can see him to the right. He caught a ride with another truck!! An interesting fact is that the Ford on the trailer was bought new in Medford, OR as a slab cab for a local logging outfit. It had a V903T in it that I wanted. So I kept the motor and Paddy wanted the c
  12. I will dig through some of my stuff as I know I have a picture of it when it was a logger. And I think his business cards had it on it too?
