    I have a motor (390 + whole drivetrain) looking for a good truck, and $500 burning a hole in my pocket, but no way to get the truck to the east coast. :(

    Is that your Grinch Mobile? I will probably take it if it is still around.

    Besides the motor, how is the rest of the drivetrain? And how are the plow mechanics?

    I can't believe this isn't gone yet. If you were near me for $500.00 I'da been there in 5 minutes to snap that deal up.

    Its still forsale...C'mon folks it has to go, I have 1 to many plow trucks in my driveway. Plowmeister...The plow works just fine. The rest of the drivetrain is ok. It ran fine, would make trips to westfield with no problem from Indy.

    Meet everyone in MI next month (3-6). I think I have an engine, but if not I may be interested in yours. Is it a complete turnkey or just a sb?

    it is drop it in and go, might have to tweak the carb a little or use the old one. last time it ran she pegged the 60 psi oil pressure gauge at startup and sustained 30-40 psi at high idle

    I still need to check and see if I have a motor for the truck. If not, and you can make it to MI for the get together, I will take it from you.

    Kipcom-

    Man you're killing me. I missed this or something. I would have taken it off you hands, but it is to late. I think that my brother has 2 motors setting that would have went right in. Still hoping for more snow, but the ice won't go away.

    Ask steve your truck would have went nice with our farm rig.
