    1972 international Travelall 1210 restoration/mod/whatever my wife says I can do "Big Betty"

    you have no idea how tempted I was to put a 5 gal jug of fuel on the roof and gravity feed the carb just to take it for a spin

    1972 international Travelall 1210 restoration/mod/whatever my wife says I can do "Big Betty"

    Small update: The engine runs, it is a bottle baby right now. I need to clean the rear tank for sure and run fuel lines as it looks like there were some drunken shenanigans that happened with the fuel system at some point (the fuel lines from the tank to the selector look right but after that...

    I got the front hubs freed up last night! I was worried I would have to replace them and being as they are the original IH locking hubs it will keep me looking a little more stock

    I've never seen one burn down, I have seen them have a head crack around ~210k. given that was a truck we used for work at the airport including towing some 12-14k trailers around. congrats on the new truck sorry to hear about the old.

    Mineral basin heli crash

    Yeah, they will most likely just have a team of Chinooks sling them out. Between the relative light weight of a Hawk (~16k) and the lift capacity of a hook with the lowish altitude and low ambient temps it isn't even a strain on them. I'm more surprised they screwed the pooch on the PL due to a...

    Dumb injuries

    Stag’s Lowrider Shop Truck

    Keep it slammed, but go super wides on the back, and tiny skinny tires up front. Let people think it’s a 5 second truck. https://www.ebay.com/p/691301839 throw this on it so people really think its a 5 second truck :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    New Mbryson tow pig...”Sweaty Betty” - 2010 F350 V10

    with it being on '05 it should be a 30v, so more power and a little better mpgs than the old 20v. Tires are likely 285/75r17 based off the rough inches you said. Unless you trust the maintenance that has been done on the truck I would put new sparkies in it, and if it is an automagic I highly...
