Hello guys! Have been lurking on a number of forums over the years, watching for others with similar interests to my own. I have fabbed a number of conversions of different types over the last 30 some-odd years, and enjoy the company. I will try to offer any help I can, and am always looking for some new way to do something that I have not seen before. Thank you all in advance.

Afew of the numerous

Chev BB - Ford 4x4 66
Chev SB - Chev Vega (did toooo many)
555 cummins - 66-74 Ford F700 F800 (gas re-powers LOOONG ago)
6V-53 DD - 66-74 Ford F700-F800 (gas re-powers LooooNG ago)
4BD1 Isuzu - 78 Dodge maxi-van
4BD1 Isuzu - 75 F-250 4x4
Lots of time spent fabbing mounts, adaptors, etc for others with similar interests/projects.
I like both the Cummins 4bt, and Isuzu 4BD series, always looking for good cores. Had 6 cylinder Cummins of different flavors, and like them, but right now, I favor the mileage of the 4's over the extra power. Had some IDI fords (6.9, 7.3) and found them to be reliable up to about 250 HP (conservatively). I did not personally own any Powerstrokes, although I have worked on them.
