If you are going that deep into it, chunk the dual mass flywheel and hang a clutch!

Looks like it was going to pick up the house.

You are going to make friends in your neighborhood with that crane. People will want you to load and unload stuff for them and pull their engines, etc...

But at least you can do it. No matter what you get, the neighborhood will fid a need for you to use it for them.

Awesome truck, wish I had one like it. Congrats.
Tumbling down the road at 35 MPH is no fun, TRUST ME!

I think that is how the tanks are filled at O/A filling stations. They use braided steel lines from the manifold line to the tanks. At least, that is the way that I remember it. It has been a long time since I have seen them fill the tanks.

In time the right project will find the scrap pile, no need for the scrap pile to go out looking for a project.
