Thank you sir !

i will for sure its in pretty good shape !  My first R model I looked for a while for a decent one I could afford 

the older gent I got it from did all new brakes  drums s cams and bushings wheel bearings etc 

new wheels spacers rears are virgin case caps  steers are brand new 

it runs and goes over the road good 

I'll post more when I bring it home next week

I have found an 86 with 300 engine and 6 speed 

frame is broke spead badly I’m trying to buy it  

good move if you can swing it.  Just know  for sure which 6 speed it has.  The TRXL 107 has a low ratio of 14.10 and the TRXL 1071 has 23.08 ratio.  I believe it was really ment for mixers  so they could creep along while pouring curbs/sidewalks etc.  Friend of mine has one and I quickly learned no way you could go from the hole and grab first direct-at least I couldn't.😰  But if you put the main in 2nd and the spliter in low you could take off with a load and then go to first direct with  the splitter on the high side and you would maintain speed.

Thanks for the info red horse !

its the 107 

it’s my first r model guys keep telling me to put the 300 in it and the trxl107

not sure I will unless I don’t like it as is 

thanks for steering me in the right direction 

I really like this old truck people say I’m crazy for not getting a newer truck 

but I’ve always liked R models since I was a little guy

That frame is immaculate.  Could wish for a double frame though, that's a lot of weight pushing down on the frame when the body first starts going up.  Great find, how many miles? Tractor first, so I guess it'll have a few.

The X107 is an excellent transmission.  Low first is great off road plus multiple reverse speeds.

The X107A is the air shift version of the X107 2 stick 6 speed.  Ratios are the same.

It doesn't cost anything to pay attention.
