    At least you won't have to get out to take a leak. :laughing: Looks like it would be a cool truck all fixed up. :mechanic:

    Rust doesn't bother me (perks of owning a welding shop) but that gas motor does.

    The old man has a loadstar down on the farm and if I remember right, it's tight quarters under the hood. I'm not even sure I can shoehorn a B5.9 in there. I'd hate to restore the truck and still have the gasser in there.

    Maybe go with a 392/4 bbl. ?

    I'm sure the 345 pushes it down the road just fine... just not crazy about gas motors.

    I think if you find a 12v Cummins you'll be able to fit it in there...but just. You have a welding shop though right? You could always just extend the frame up front and move the radiator forwards.

    I think International Loadstars later on could have been had w/ a 6v53 Detroit later on. Nothing sounds better wound out.
