I sure love the sound of a two stroke Detroit engine!  I was enjoying your pictures you have in your album and noticed one that looked like it was the owners manual, did (do) these come with a name from the factory? yours has the name Elizabeth?

Sorry for the belated reply.  The paint scheme it originally came with has Elizabeth for a name.  It is from their advertising pamphlets.

I bought a FLC severe service cab for $100 on a frame with front axle.  Pretty well stripped of much of the useful stuff.  Strongly considering replacing my FLC cab with it to get a straight solid one without any holes.  Wondering if much of the earlier interior will just swap over.  Pretty sure someone will want my FLC cab.  My reservations are about the older doors which is a love hate - they have the 2 ribs in them and a vent which adds styling and charactor but they are also older Freightliner All Weather doors.  New cab has the improved better doors.  Decision means more work but wind up with a better truck in the end.

I am pretty sure I will eventually make the cab swap and transfer much of the interior that I can make fit over to the other cab.  It is a much sturdier cab without the damage issues of the original.  I kind of wouldn't mind finding a early fiberglass hood that used the round headlights on pods and matches my aluminum one.  My hood will need some serious repairs to be right.  I have been slowly accumulating stuff to get the intact 92 I have running.  I picked up a DDEC II computer, a engine harness, a power harness I believe plus a plug and some wire to build part of the harness.  I think I need a jake harness when I add those.  So slow progress being made.
