So I finally got her home, not a bad ride infact she took the short ride pretty well, about a hour drive, I was concerned because the bird was blowing white smoke and a lot of it in the first 5/10 min of running. But it stopped after she really warmed up. 225,000 miles on the odometer on a cat 3116 diesel, hoping this is normal for one that was sitting around.
Took out the first twelve seats today, my grinder is my best friend let me tell you. only used 3 metal pads on those bolts felt lucky.
