And so it begins.

Chopped almost 7 feet off the frame just so I could fit this thing in my barn.

First thing will be to drop the rear end out and shorten the wheelbase by 67 inches which is one section of drive shaft.

Don't want to have another shaft modified if I can help it.

My wife and I run into that. She's in Georgia and I'm in Kansas. We'll do identical searches on either Google or Yahoo and sometimes not match a single first page hit.

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

Not ideal at all. I need to sell the house and find a job down there.
