Not too shameful looking.

The previous owner took the engine half apart and left it. She's rougher than she looks.

Well, the double frame looks servicable. The back of the cab doesn't look rotted.

As you can see the motor was taken apart. The truck was parked and then started to get boned out piece by piece over the last 7-8 years.

Although it's hard to tell that's a new floor at, new shifter handle, new gauge cluster, all new condenser, valves, new seats, and switches as most of the dash was apart when we started. The gauge cluster was taken do there is no way of knowing exactly how many miles are in the truck.

Hello! We installed four new batteries.

Put the motor back together adjusted the valves. She fired right up. My dad has another mechanic in the garage helping in my absence. I haven't had the chance to do much except for rain days.

Going to go through the motor and deem if it's in need of a rebuild or not.

3406E and an 18sp, my favorite set up I have ever driven with the 444 Cummins a close second. Looks good.

Yeah, it does beat buying a new one. When we're done the truck will be like new anyway.

Outstanding!  Lucky Dog.

You may have to check the right front brake hose.  In a hard right turn there may be enough slack that the hose will rub on the tire.
