To clarify, dock in UK, not dock in US. Dock in US is scheduled for June 9th.

That makes more sense. For a little while there I thought you might have gotten your truck onto one of Richard Branson's boats!

Good luck with this; it'll be a good one for us to follow.

Thanks

Ok, Doug is going to get it soon and see if he can make it run. You want him/me to do the head gasket on it? How do you propose that you get the motor? What is your offer price wise? Please PM me a phone number.

Still waiting to clear customs (tamps feet like a 5 year old) ... Doug is going to try to get her running before dropping her off.

Ron Good !

Mr.Brown your truck is now a legal resident of the United States. Would you call those faux wing protectors or shorty blunts ?

Was picking up another truck that cleared before yours. Will grab this one in the morning. So much for the dept of agriculture inspection- this thing is loaded with Uk spiders.

Awesome will be if I can get it running after sitting for how many years ?

after 2.5 hrs of bleeding, priming, pumping, and a wiff of diesel nose candy....




ran it for half an hour and brought coolant up to temp. Saw no signs of any possible head gasket issues but cant put it under load as the clutch pedal won't pump up.

I know you bought this for the winch and the 110 regular tub but you need to put a clutch master and slave in it and drive it for a month. Then if you must part it out so be it.
