Manny, you can travel light don't need to bring tools, I got enough for everyone.
Eric, have you learned how to crawl under a bus yet !!

Here's a few before pictures , just in case I forget what it did look like.

It's nesting place for a while.

Typical 8v71 setup

Rear bedroom which has to be re-done and floor raised and bed turned means complete destruction !!! :o :o

Oh added another item to list, remove air assist steering and add power steering.
anyone care to add to list ?



Thanks ED

Not to steal this thread but I HATE I-17 from Flagstaff down to PHX. Not one but two long down hill runs and a big climb out.
Now back to the regularly scheduled demolition and constuction.

Clifford, I look forward to the days when I can be like you, Jefferson, and Byron. I tell Jefferson that he goes by the shop, grabs a biscuit, hand full of cash, and rides off for a few months!!LOL The only big hill I have tackeled is a 5 mile 7% grade. I was a good workout, but compared to the 13 mph I had with the 8V-71 I was pleased!!

I 17 from Phoenix is a good climb Leroy you don't see the buses flying up that one either.

I 40 from Kingman to Flagstaff has some good grades also and we are not that far west it gets better lol

I see more blown engines in buses on the climb out of Laughlin Nv to Kingman Az

Last time I went to the Valley there was 2 one a late model MCI probably a 60 series and 1 Vanhool it was probably a Cummins

Oil every where they blow big time on that climb

115 dergees and 8% for 8 or 10 miles will tell on you if not very careful.

You can tell the old pros on that stretch of hiway they pull over and stop 2 or 3 times

Well Eric you beat me to it, Those four words " While were at it ", will probably be the death of me !
Didn't know them until you said them so it's your fault. Got most all the accessory junk out of the way, miter box setting there , darn thing is heavy. Rear engine hatch off, couple days at my pace be ready to pull. Trying to get hold of a forklift, that just sits unused. Put the brake controller on the jeep today so I am ready to get the trailer and 60 series/ trans whenever you shout.
I will tell you guys, I got a lot of info out of Eric Saturday, but be careful,
he likes to spend money, NOT HIS !!!!! :lol: :lol:
Thanks ED
