Apple tree in pretty good shape. Might even mill some of it becuase that nice red color.
Broke the old girl out of winter hibernation for some work today! Was a big forked white oak.
That's an awesome lookin' square body !! I love those trucks!!
Keep on .... Runnin' Loads !!
All oak today 1 more fills the shed pretty sure i have close to three loads left bucked already!
Well jeez, I wasn't expecting such a reaction for the truck . Thanks guys! It's an 82 with a 91 front clip. I drove it to michigan from california last summer, only has 109kmi on it. It's currently a 454/4spd, but I'm building a detroit 4-53t/eaton rto610 for it. Going to build a hydraulic dump flat bed for it, multilink air suspension, and do a mild restoration/slight modernization hopefully this fall with a fresh coat of silver. Going to convert to power windows/locks, tilt column, delay wipers, etc.
Upside down 4-53
Really cool truck ... buuut a 4 53 may sound cool ... but it will be sloooow IMO ... I know the 454 eats fuel, but leave it!!
My 2 square body burbs ...
6.2 diesel 700R4 241 D 60 & 14B on 34's
350 TBI 465 241 10B & 14B on 21.4x16.1's
On the other side of things ... I have burned nothing but junk for 2 weeks and I pulled the pin 2 days ago ... yup, shut down the boiler, for now ... cause it's Canada .... I hope I'm done for the year!!
Keep on .... Runnin" Loads
Sweet rigs man!!!
Don't worry, the 4-53t won't be stock, but even stock they offered it up to 215hp/495lbft which is still more grunt than a 454. I'm doing a full electronic DDEC conversion with compound turbos and an external air bypass system. Should be about 500hp/1000-1200lbft.
Green red oak and rock oak today. Gave the F150 a break and used mama's truck.. Ran this load no problem.
Another load mainly oak didnt stack it yet though wanted to get home in time to watch caps game. But this will fill the wood shed then i have one load maybe load and a half left to clean everything up around farm.
No rack yet huh?rburg44
this piece was already almost cut through almost all the way not sure what happened. I seen about a dozen nails in this walnut.
motolife, I still don't know how you get so much on that truck. I like those old trucks.
With the new motor I’ve been building and modding and I’ll put a flatbed on with air bags I’ll be able to get a third row. Possibly gear down the rear end.this is the intake for it. Should lower the powerband since the intake is much longer
Ha i got the back rack just havnt put it on yet lets pray i make it through tomorrows split session without blowing the window out last trip of year i think
Hmmm that carb looks sooo familar ... Holley 2245 ??
How’s that maul working out for you? I think I could throw out my back, swinging that thing.

I got a twinge just looking at it
Well the handle broke about a week ago and I rewelded it back on couple days ago but it works good. Still haven’t done a final grind on the tip. Might get a piece of hickory after this handle breaks again.
Did little different joint setup this time.
You do some pretty work!
