All right this has been dropping down the pages faster than Cody can come up with one liners
So I am bumping it up again!
Now I am sure we have decided it is a go!
And as I was speaking to Don (Fairchild) on the phone the other day he said and I quote "I am bringing the Tri-tips, since you said we'd have a way of cooking them!"
Also it was mentioned that I have the need to rebuild an engine or 2 in the near future and Don reminded me he has excellent prices on parts for this.
And it was mentioned that I might just have him bring the parts with him when he comes and we could do a seminar on it while we rebuilt one of the engines here during the rally!
I think a rally and detailed photos and story of Don rebuilding an 8V92 engine with parts & labor donated (by him) would make a great write off advertisement for him as a great story for the magazine!
I have a 60 Series in dire need of being rebuilt.
I also have a super clean 8V92 DDEC that has an issue with it (may not need much at all!). I only know what the folks that we got the bus from told us er
lied to us
! (really I don't know if they lied about it or not, but after all the other things they lied about it would not surprise me at all!)
The engine is honestly one of the cleanest engines I have seen that has been run down the road and not detailed afterward, and then sat for a yr before I saw it. Then it sat for 2 yrs before we had it hauled home and people still look at it and say things about how clean it is!
The story they gave on it is that they built it out of a junk yard engine and put it in the bus and ran one trip from Rexburg, ID to Salt Lake City, UT and back and found coolant in the oil! The mechanic said when he told the boss about it that the boss told him "park it out back I'm tired of fooling with it!" (how true it is, we don't know!)
So anyway folks lets get together and decide on some dates and details so we can start this party rolling!
I will again offer our place to any and all who come on a donation basis! We know have a deep freeze and large Stainless fridge in the shop. We have water, dump station, restroom, and shower available at no charge. As well as a couple of 30 AMP hook ups for a small fee to cover the electricity used.
