My truck is dead....
I seem to be unable to make decisions. I have to find an engine for this truck. It is a 478 cubic inch gas engine.
I found another truck with an engine that will work. The truck has not run for 7 years. It has the transmission I need. It was running when parked. It was parked because the farmer bought a very nice truck and no one wanted to shift a 5 and 4. I don't mind.
So I could try to get this motor running. Or rebuild the 478 which has a broken piston and valve problems. But I have to tow it home. I may have talked a guy into scrapping it and giving me the engine "brownie" and front springs.
I can't hide in my house because my helper is cleaning the shed where we need to put a shop. He tends to be brutal in his disposals.
I want to plant or grind feed.
