    Replacement Fuel Tank

    But having said that, I might change my mind tomorrow. I’ll sleep on it and see how I feel tomorrow.

    Replacement Fuel Tank

    Yeah I’m leaning towards the MTS plastic tank from Gas Tank Depot. It’s actually polyethylene, a stronger cross-linked high density polymer. And they are Made In The USA. I think I’ll order 2 of ‘em tomorrow and order the brackets and straps for the passenger side from LMC. I’ll document all...

    Yes I am looking forward to the adventure. Just got to get through this next surgery first.

    Replacement Fuel Tank

    I am wanting to install the auxiliary fuel tank on the passenger side, and after removing the bed from my M1028, I discovered that the original tank on the drivers side is in pretty bad shape. So I have decided to buy 2 new tanks and replace the original at the same time I install the auxiliary...

    Optimizer Engine

    The P400 pan is not hitting anywhere..... yet. And it may NOT hit. Just looking at it though, it’s going to be real close. I will know for sure once the new engine is hovering over the hole. Even if the P400 does clear the factory crossmember, I may still order one of those ORD units for...

    Optimizer Engine

    I've watched Ebay for the past couple of years for P400 engines and/or parts. It's like watching for parts for the Space Shuttle - there just is nothing there. Although I cannot confirm, but I have heard that only 400 of the P400 long blocks were released for civilian consumption. My only...

    Optimizer Engine

    I purchased my P400 long block from LeRoy Linza (LeRoy Diesel) in 2017. I believe I may have gotten the last one GEP released to the public. Around the same time LeRoy was in the process of tearing down another new P400 long block to see what made it tick. He was documenting his “rebuild”on his...

    Optimizer Engine

    Thanks Skinny. ORD has one I might look at once I get the P400 swinging over the frame. If necessary I’ll just fabricate my own. Whatever it takes, that P400 / 700R4 / NP241 will be bolted up.

    Optimizer Engine

    Not that I am in the market for an Optimizer 6500, because I already have my new drivetrain assembled, however for the benefit of other SS members, I wonder where the best place to purchase a NEW Optimizer long block?

    Optimizer Engine

    The "engine above the Optimizer 6500" to which you refer is the P400. If I can ever get through these darn surgeries, I plan to install my P400 into my M1028. And I can almost guarantee that I will need to modify my engine crossover frame to accommodate the P400 girdle and oil pan. The P400's...

    Optimizer Engine

    Yes that is my understanding. Not sure about the oil pan. It may fit just fine. Maybe someone with specific experience can chime in.
