well.....the rebuild starts here ladies and gentlemen. but first.....some before pics
i am gonna be posting them in a short. the tracks are not reusable....from what i am told you have to just buy new tracks. the M1 abrams tank tracks you can just replace the pads...but not these. if anyone know where i can get tracks let me know........i will show how the engine goes info you also....but there is no engine in it.Can you post some photo with the tailgate open showing the actual engine state??
Is the track are reusable or need to be change?
don't know Richard....the last time i saw both of them run was in the late 90s........Willie had a Jamboree at his home......a lot of boggers were there.....Equailizer, and Grave Digger...my tank used to sit in the front yard with a sign on the top on top of two cars. i left and went in the military in 2000 and came home on leave and he moved and i think it has been like ten or so years if i am not mistaken. when i got home from the war i got up with him and just been friends ever since. i was actually joking with him about selling it to me and he said ok! i **** near fainted on the phone.......especially after he told me a price....Awesome ! Another monster being saved. I heard that it was still being used as of about 8 years ago.
man...i was in almost in tears too in the reality set in that this is actually mine!!!!Thank you so much bud for buying this piece of history it just put me in tears to see the truck like that. Now did you buy the semi too or just the tank?
arent the 366 and the 427 more or less the same motor, with the 427 Bored out more?
no...the 427 had a different block and pistons. if you try to bore a 366 out this much she wouldn't last a spell! i went with different head to free up so power since the stock heads are very restrictive. a 366 optimum rpm rance is about 3000to 4200 pms...and hopefully she won't see that except maybe a short burst. any no... i didn't buy the semi. i don't even know if that was the semi he hauled it with or not........i will ask next week though....don't want to bother him so much
good luck too on Cyclops......all jokes aside man its good to know the owner of your favorite 4 monsters trucks in person!!!!Good to know you! Great to see the progress you're making and look forward to running with you in the future!
