Actually , ive broken no law, I have 4.5 acres and claim farm status, I was merely illustrating that a friend has these plates with less acreage. If you read carefully you would have gotten it right the first time. Look before you leap sir.
well , you can always farm area tag them. with farm tags you can register it up to 80k with no state inspection. You are supposed to have 3.5 acres for farm status, but this is never checked. A buddy of mine has one acre waterview property and claimed farm status. farm tag means no cdl,dot, or...
not worth even close to 19k, I thought les was a sharp buisness man untill he offered 10k for it. If that guy has even close to that amount in that truck I feel sorry for him. If im dropping that kind of coin it better be somthing special.
go with a 923, the a2 is the most expensive type followed by the a1, then the std m923. all are worlds better than the older 5 tons, like 2 totally different trucks. they ride better, easier to drive, much better brakes, etc.
I actually like how quiet my buddies a3 is, you can actually hold a conversation without sreaming, and it is convenient not to have to wear my shooters earmuffs everytime i go for a ride, but to each his own.
Dont worry the deuce front axle can take the extra weight :D
The torque increase will take care of the extra weight, might wanna go full hudro steering to make it more streetable.
what does the multifuel weigh ? Id bet it is over 1500.
with the stock axle ratio, an overdrive automatic like an md3060, you could cruise that motor at 2100, save fuel , and have plenty of torque. the motors are on e-gay for 2-3k.
the shortness of the motor makes a overdrive allison or a good 10-13 speed tranny a great possibility, these bigger...
peep this link to see the hp and tq ratings, its impressive for a 4 cylinder
Detroit Diesel Series 50 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
look at the list of competing powerplants, most of em are in a military appliation.
wouldnt this be the best engine for a swap? being its only a 4 cylinder, its plenty short, available in alot of inner city buses, and rated at 250-320hp, it would be a prime candidate for a swap, more room left for a overdrive auto trans also.....anyone else pondering this idea ?
by the way...
ok bought a m923, and have conflicting info on what number government liquidators wants for sf97. it has a "identification number" on the data tag with only 7 digits, with date of delivery below that. My question is is that what they want, or should i add ten zeros then the number to make a...
My local trans guy said he wouldn't do a full manual 4l80 . He said without computer it wont last, the said to get a controller. He mentioned that adding a vaccum modulator to control line pressure was inadequate, and trans life will suffer. He says a controller is needed and well worth the expense.
