    Lightbulb parts

    Not too bad at all really, you just have to do some looking.

    They made the 345 and 392 up until '96 I think (5-ton motor)
    GM electrics
    Dodge brakes and autobox
    Ford manual trans

    And there are some new/used IH parts suppliers in the states if you get stuck.

    Oh well...

    Sorry buddy...

    Loved my truck but 8 MPG was starting to kill me, hung a "for sale" sign on the old girl when gas hit 80 cents per litre.

    My Scout was my daily driver and I loved to take her wheeling but if/when it broke i had to find another way to get to work.

    With what it cost me to run the Scout I can now afford my race car, my daily driver and the couple of other projects in my driveway.

    It would have been a great toy, but I was in debt and couldn't afford a bush truck and a daily driver.

    It kinda sucks when eagle ridge take a full tank of gas

    Besides, It's sooooo much fun when a ghetto-tech 1977 Corolla can out-handle a 1995 240SX

    Still fabricating and building / breaking stuff, just on the track and not in the woods
