Old diesels just hate to wake up in the cold don't they. Was looking at the video of the lazy 6/71, have you entertained the thought of the torque converter being junk?

Yes and at this point I've ruled out everything engine related.

No torque multiplication, stall speed near idle and black smoke seems to fit in my book. Try running it in gear with the rear wheels of the ground, when reved up apply brake pedal see if it seems to have power then

Finished up the stereo,cb, and speaker install on sunday. I can't wait to get this thing on the road.

Some fresh speakers behind the factory covers in the cab and in the sleeper

I have the same Uniden Bearcat in my bat mobile and I sure do like it, the stock microphone has a lot to be desired, I put an amplified midland mic on mine and sure like it, I especially like how fast it will scan through the channels and the weather radio.  I think when I get my white operational I am going to go old school cobra 29 ~ 23 channel just because!

Sounds awesome and looks good in there.

Been awhile... though I had a buyer for this but as is typical money never appeared. Was only selling it so I wouldn't have to see it sit any more so I decided since I didn't need to sell it we'd make a better choice. 

First lets get the old girl pulled out of the weeds.



Next lets get it turned around and in a spot we can work on it a little easier.



Lets get to work shall we:

As you can see the back half of the truck needs.... everything. lol 
We also had a bunch of work to do up front. The radiator has always had a leak at the seam right above the lower outlet. Out she comes.
On top of that the single rounds and rock shields looked like complete shit and had to go!
This poor radiator was in ROUGH shape.
Here you can see where the leak was. The corrosion in this area was so bad it actually snapped all the bolts above that outlet.
Core is filthy but appeared in good shape otherwise.
First trip to the store. Ugh. The bleeding begins.
Decided to pull a front wheel and have a look. Not too shabby.
Cleaned up nice!

Swapped my steers over to some real wheels and put it back together in the front.
Getting back to the part that really needs attention. She's lost her fifth and fenders.
Broke a shock mount in the process so I unbolted it. Also got rid of the bent rear crossmember.
Pulling airbags etc.
Got a set of REAL headlights mounted. That's how a Peterbilt is supposed to look.
Still coming apart however:
Oh man this can't be good. What is all this?
And so it begins...
Typical I get done sandblasting at 3am just in time for rain. God I love NY (sarcasm)
The plan was to primer Saturday but ended up getting rained out so we had to make a mad dash and primer AND paint for 14 hours on Sunday,
as this was to be the last good weekend of the year and it's gonna rain on Monday. UGH. Wouldn't have made it without my wife's help.
At least it came out good!
