      This post has been edited by Rooster: still looking for my spare set of balls that I thought were last placed in the upstairs bathroom medicine cabinet but I'm getting to the age where it's difficult to go upstairs.

       

       

       

       

       

      Ric wanted the roof easily removable so I installed pulls on each end that are slightly offset that way the roof will be un-reversible  no matter how hard you try to push them in Ric. Still gotta figure out how I want to chain the pulls on end so they do not get misplaced during removal as Ric is getting older and things tend to get easily misplaced at his age. On second thought, perhaps I should chain down the roof period (with extra chain) that way it does not, doesn't, won't ...."get lost during a heavy operation/carnage session when dinner is called/served"

      Currently researching drawbars and Zygote's which brings me to why or what differs between them being joined or "YOKED".

      Like the roof latches and the other use of brass for attachments and hardware.  I looked around the edges of the photos for a hint as to what you are using as glue to attach the skin to the old yellow or red bodies.  Did you leave a hint?  Or did you really rivet them together?  The little round disk on the side?  A magnet? 

      .

      Looking good!

      Motor arrived today and the CVRR crews did a test fit!

       

      Decided to go with the twin turbocharged Cummins QST30-R for it's low RPM torque and nice upper end horsepower.

      Progress continues to make junk from junk. AGAIN this is a KITBASH not a SCRATCHBUILD with NO 3D printed parts or mass produced castings.

      There is store bought styrene strips and brass which come from THE LOCAL HOBBY SHOP but a lot comes from a sign shop dumpster.

      And how does a rice rocket mechanic get that kind of relationship with a diesel manufacturer?

      Well just the fact that he got a cumapart  Cummins shows he is not a diesel  mechanic , should have got a Caterpillar!!! Yellow motors rule!! Says the guy that currently owns a truck with a a Cummins that is currently in the shop again!
