359 peterbilt (cannonball run) update 2/14/2018

Recommended Posts

It is a revell 359 peterbilt that I’m building for the 2018 cannonball run community biuld:

it will be shortened into a day cab, three turbos with water to air intercooler on a 3406 cat engine, 4 fuel tanks, custom interior with a roll cage and much more. 

Here are some mock-up pics as I can’t start building until January 1st but I want to know what you guys think of it.

That's a 359, not a 379 (so you know).

Thanks I must have been thinking of a different truck when I posted this.

Not sure why you don't want the sleeper. It would be easier for the co pilot to sleep if they could lay down.

Got some work done on it. I shortened the frame, mocked up the fuel tanks, built the intake and decided to run the sleeper.

what is the little tank on the drivers side that I have circled?

let me know what you think.

Not sure on the Pete’s but smaller tanks like that were power steering reservoirs... It’s not an air cleaner as they are bigger in size of course!!!!

Kerry is right, that is the power steering reservoir. Many trucks have luberfiners mounted in the same location that look similar. Some Peterbilts had both a Luberfiner and the power steering reservoir mounted in this location.

Painted the engine today. I still need to detail it and do some touch up some spots here and there. 

Let me know what you think.

Dad had one that was set-up like that. Power steering and oil filter on the same side,can not remember what order they were in.

Isn't the smaller reservoir power steering? A lot of the ones I've seen are quite different in size (oil filter vs power steering reservoir)

I think the power steering reservoir was the inboard tank.
