    on the steers cut off the blocks between the leafs and axle. this will lower it a bit, you can also modify the axle by making the spindles higher. For the drives cut the airbags and the support for the torsion bar. The bags on the Low leaf suspension are smaller that what is on the model.Don't cut too much at the start, take your time and get things where you want them to be. Again on the steer axle you can bash 2 front axles to make the spindles sit higher and even out the stance. That is my 2 bits. If you need some pic's or guide lines check out the Eaton website, they have fairly good parts drawings. I will post a link tomorrow when I'm at work and am on the site.

    Thanks, the only problem I think I'm having is the scoop for the blower is a little to long so I'm not able to shove the engine all the way back. I'll have to mock up the fire wall and set the cab/interior down on the frame. Thank you for the input.

    1957 chevy stepside
    I'm building a 1957 chev stepside with the engine out of the Revell street burner 1979 Z28 Camaro. My problem is that I've located the front engine mounts from the Camaro into the Chev, but the clearance from the front of the engine to the hood doesn't leave me room for a rad. Anyone attempt this, or does anyone have ideas? I'm going with more of a street rod/ sleeper look to it (you know blown daily driver lol). All input and suggestions are much appreciated. Thank you.

    2010-2011 Cat will be back, they are working on building their own truck. They have agreement with Navistar to use part of Navistar's plant to build these trucks. Cat is going to use as much of their own designs as possible, no farming out body designs etc. The engine is going to be Cat, so they will be back in the "game". Cat is taking some time away from on highway engines to look at the global market.This is what a Cat rep told me a couple weeks ago at our open house at work.

    Thanks, I've done a couple searches online but end getting die-cast versions. Maybe I'll try some different wording.

    A Little Help/guidance
    I was wondering if anyone knows of any farm equipment model kits? I kinda have the urge to build an older tractor (Case IH or John Deere) . Thanks.

    I enjoy basically all music depends on the mood or job at task.But lately I've been listening to Old Time Radio programs like Amos and Andy, Unsolved Mysteries, Aldrich Family, well you get the idea. It gives me something to fill the void of silence and a chuckle here and there.
