Thumbs up Bought a Cummins Today

Well I came across a deal today I could not pass up. It is a school bus with a 5.9 Cummins in it that was totally rebuilt from the ground up including the turbo and pump around 2 years ago. Once it was placed back in the bus it only was driven around 100 miles before they parked it do to extreme oil usage. They never did get time to tear it back down and see what the issue was and it has sat ever since.

Well the whole bus was offered to me yesterday for $1000.00 and I ended up buying it today for $700.00.

I am also in the process of accuiring a 86 4x4 1 ton Ford and I bet you all can guess what is going to be my second winter project.:Thumbup:

So hopefully by spring I will be ready to roll with the new built Stroker engine in my 95 and also a new built Cummins in a 86.:Thumbup:

I can honestly say I am looking forward to having TWO pulling trucks for next year with my two favorite engines.:bow:

Just thought I would share my joy with you guys......:Thumbup:

Just got off the phone with a buddy that has a 1949 Ford truck body that is in great condition he has been wanting to to do something with. We are going to check it all out and do some measuring and figuring and see just what it will take to swap the body onto the 86 1 ton frame and make the Cummins fit.

I am seeing a BIG second winter project developing.:Thumbup:

2 pulling trucks,. sounds like your a glutton for punishment to me. a 49 ford diesel pulling truck would be pretty cool however, even if it dose have one of them crappy in line 6 engines in it

I can take pics and post if you want to see a big yellow school bus, a old 86 Ford and 49 Ford setting in a back yard.
Not very exciting but I could do it if you really want me too.
