Maybe! Today I pressure tested the cooling system. One pin hole leak in my solder. Repaired. All is good with that system. Fan shroud built(check) So there is hope. Air to air inter-cooler pipe fittings on hand and test fitted(check). I'm running out of reasons not to start this engine. Then on to wiring the Eaton 10spd Autoshift--I have the shift tower and diagram. There is however 30 ft between them. That is for another adventure. Best part when finished... it's mine--I did it--- all I need to do is keep it running and put fuel in it. IT WILL Never be finished!! drive-able soon I hope. Bob
I like the AutoShift - even the generation 1 version that I have. Having enough gears for any hill makes driving fun. Having enough power to pull the hills in the right gear is even better! Keep going Bob - you'll get there soon enough. For me the autoshift wiring was very easy. Just make sure to terminate the end of the J1939 communications line with the proper resistor and use the proper shielded wiring for the J1939 run to the front computer.
