Haha, no, it was a gift. Its a Trailer Park Boys reference, but I do have two cats (and a dog).

I just gave what I could (not much, just graduated) but to anyone on the fence, this would be a great way to pay back the forum. I know personally I've saved probably several hundreds of dollars from the diagnostic help on this forum and I think this is a great way to pay it back.

Also, I have some almost new low back seats that I'm not using but for Kent's future rig they'd be free of cost.

Way to bring us back on topic Conor and thanks for the donation.

I'll take note of the offer and let you know of we need it, but the truck has newish seats iirc.

I'll make sure I'm synched up with Kent soon, but I know we have a couple of checks on the way and I think we are close to being at the point where we could commit to buying the truck (with Craig's contribution). But please don't let this stop you contributing!


Thanks to everyone who has contributed so far.

Yes, the total is creeping upwards. A big thank you to all who have contributed. The more who donate, the less Craig will need to. His offer of 3500 is tremendously generous, but I think that amount can be much less with a little more cooperation.

Update

I am ready to bolt up the new gearbox, and drop the motor in, but need a part to complete it. The main shaft bearing housing had cracked, so we need another, and the 2 screws. This is the plate that holds the 2 counter sunk screws, under the PTO cover to remove the input gear. If anyone has a broken/spare lt230, around, please let me know if I can take it off your hands cheap.
Thank You,
Greg

Thats a bummer about the housing, Greg. Hopefully we can get a donated/discounted spare soon and have Lizzy on the road headed east!

Getting excited.

Looks like things are moving along.

Thanks for your efforts Greg. Hope work goes smoothly as you close in on putting the D110 together.
