Long time cummin!
The day is finally here, I drove the big blue beastie off the lot at LCNW after almost 3 years into this project......
I've been without internet for a couple weeks trying to get this thing running, a bunch of hold ups, the main one being a rusty diesel tank.
I got word...
A day away, will have pics tomorrow, its pretty nasty out here today.....
Were waiting on the alternator, PITA i tell you, for some reason the voltage regulator doesn't hookup properly, we may end up just using a chevy one wire. ANy ideas from the 4bt crowd? It may have something to...

They straightened the frame where the semi crushed it at the spring hangars and...
I would call Wanye at Carco, he'd give you the digs on border crossings for parts. I think if you were going to trailer it, you might as well get it shipped. I don't think you'd be able to drive it even if it is for parts, unless you get some Canadian to take a sweet GA vacation!
