Looks like a good solid project. What are the specs?    Paul

KEEP the AIR STARTER! Their so much fun at the shows when people don't expect it.    .....Hippy

i agree, nothing better than an air starter to make someone unexpectedly need to change their shorts.

Ditto on the air start.  Changed mine over a few years ago.  With new air parts it holds air for 6 months with no problem.  Installed an automatic oiler and now I don't have to worry about vanes drying up over winter.  I also added a dual pressure gauge so I can monitor the start tank pressure.

That is a D3B in the pic with the u model. And she is definitely handy!  Thank you all for the input. I'm still not sold on the air start but I love your ideas. 

Check in with Geoff Weeks over on the Just Old Trucks website.. He has a couple of trucks with Air Start and swears by them...
