truck mechanics shop I70 missouri

Stopped at a place that had older trucks and buses.

should be able to repair just about any diesel. chassis and frame repairs.

had a 12v71 sitting in the work floor. he has several trucks with 6 71, 8 71 the 12 71.... He can and does work on the detroit 2 strokes.

shop was started by his grand dad, so this is a 3 generation shop. Lots of stuff from the 60's on up.

Keep in mind this is a diesel repair shop. ask about pricing, from what I saw in and around the shop, this dude has extensive older inventory. and the knowledge.


mostly GM but some ford, international and a couple of other odd ball trucks.

He even had a gasoline engined truck with a cast iron allison auto trans from the late 60's

This is awesome information. There should really be a list of shops like this, esp. if it was sorted by region, that have parts and knowledge of these Detroit Diesel engines.
