Well, it's on this continent anyway...

Sheldon told me it was on the dock and would be at the G&S shop on tuesday.

They have 1 other truck they are going to take apart first so that I have some time to get things in order here (get the $$$ together and get my new frame prepped to receive the new engine) but it should be on it's way in a couple months...

So, does anyone have a picture of a 12HT in a 60 I can look at so I can start planning? I'm trying to figure out where I'm gonna try and shoehorn my york compressor, external oil filters and fule filters, and see if I can get an underhood welder in there, too....

I'll get pics of mine when it comes in, too...

I"m excited, my cruiser is gonna be diesel soon. :beer:

You asked for it.
These are out of an aussie spec 61 and that got a flat tyre and ran off a dirt road.
This one had rear H+A/C hence the extra plumbing.

I may not have room for all the stuff I planned on putting under there! :doh:

York compressor, underhood welder are must haves..

I suppose I could move the external filters and oil pre-charger to somewhere else?

I'm planning on ditching the AC, so amybe that will clear some space. I could probably get the york to sit where the ac pump is....


I dunno, gonna be a tight fit...

I seem to remember these photos made it look tIghter than it really was.
The radiator is also pushed back and bananard:D
Does the welder have to be onboard?
I was thinking there maybe something you can keep in the back and plug it in when you need it.
I would put it back together as close as factory,get to know it, and then do you your mods.

I think these have a few miles of vac hoses too but if everything is attached to the engine it will be easy.

Anything special envolved with bringing that motor into the states or is that just when one brings the whole truck?

It's possible but expensive. G&S would charge me a couple hundred for a running AC compressor? I can get an old york off a 70s ford, Volvo or AMC for like $20 pick and pull, and it's a proven performer for on-board air.

Nope, just finding one. And Sheldon says it's getting harder and harder. I was number one on his waiting list for almost a year.

Might have to pay some duties on it when it crosses the border-- I don't know yet how that's gonna pan out. BUt nothing special other than that, no emissions or DOT inspections or any of that stuff.

Yess off course is 100% posible .. the issue with the York type, is this type of compresor have the oil system apart of air pressure system.

That mean you can oil your compresor, with out filters in the pressure line.

Hi Fred. Your 12HT does not have an EDIC. It uses a VSV that closes a shutter and starves the engine of air.

Hi Fred

Shoot Sheldon a note at info@gscruiserparts.com for a complete list, if you don't have it already.

Thanks
