Looks in a really great shape. Besides restored interior and non-rusted rear wall of the cab the frame represents very good condition. Still can't figure the type of the engine it has. Something like a non-intercooled EM6 of 225 or so HP?

I could be wrong, but I do believe that is the legionary 237 complete with Jacob's engine brake .

I do believe that is correct, I should know something later this week, the shipper should be picking it up either Thursday or Friday.

I would think those stacks should be covered so as not to damage the turbo 

At the risk of opening a can of Worms... ^^^^ this is a Myth.............IMHO.

Agreed, if a turbo is spinning as described it would mean your missing most if not all of you motor internals

Holy cow (lol)  just a though. Any spin'n at all with no oil isn't gonna help it. Guy found a nice old Mack there, I'd like to see him fire it up with no troubles and have some fun with it. I doubt that truck has ever moved at the speed that Peterbilt'll be drag'n it down the road at.
