It has been a while since we were here. Thought we had better share the latest. After 17,000 miles...slow miles. The 318 gas engine is out and a new to us 6BT cummins (1st gen 12 valve) with a 4 speed allison trans is mostly in. A bit more work on the new front cross member/ front engine mount and plumbing, wiring, drive line and exhaust.
