                Actually I have several choices of Cummins power and several gear boxes, so at this point I'm not really sure. Really just a small cam 350 would be plenty for a garage queen

                   Made my decision today on power plant, rear drives and gear box. Bought a 81 Freightliner for way less than scrap price with a running BCII 350, 10 spd and 3.70 ratio SQHD's for $500.00 bucks 

                   It's too bad because the cab is in pretty nice condition but it will go for aluminum scrap. Plus the engine bell is right hand starter which helps make room for the power steering box. There are 

                   lots of other parts I can use also.

$500? Good deal!!

Soda blaster cleaned up real nice and everything went to the body shop. The doors were in great condition and the cab was also but there will be several hours welding the drilled holes shut in the cab.

The radiator core is in great condition only two tubes had small amounts of crud in them. I would post photos but for some reason there is no place to do it.  Apparently I reached my max on images

now I just have to figure out how to manage attachments to free up space it says.

I deleted photos in my old threads still won't let me post any photos. So If you want to see any progress photos go to my thread under {Old Iron} 1960 B75 on Heavy Equipment Forums. I'm tired of fiddling around here

trying to post photos. Sorry.

What did u do for the electric wipers?    It on my list to do.

 

I read you post on the other forum I found what you used.   Looks like it will be a nice fit.    If your raising the roof and replacing the back of the cab  I'd add. 3" to the length of the cab right away too.

Nice to have a cab that isn't beat to death.
