Thanx RokWiz
We need short WB to make the beast user friendly
the shorter the WB the smaller turning circle & more manuverability
but we still need to run up n over curbs and roundabouts also negotiate low tree branches & wires

they should make the roads to suit trucks n let cars use m ....... instead the other way round

Swishy, Nice work.

I guess the yanks will want to know why you are shortening the KW rather than stretching it which they seem to like doing to everything.

There were a few years just before the silvers came out when the turbo engines had trunk style pistons with 1 1/2" wrist pins, rather than the standard 1 3/8" wrist pins. These are what I have.
Now, I have one parts guy saying my serial number isn't "in the system", another has quoted what appears to be a crosshead kit, ($500 more than a non-turbo kit) and a big silence from a couple other sources.

Update; Local brick and mortar parts house and automotive machine shop found my parts! Cheaper than any of the parts sellers on Ebay. Will have to wait 2 weeks for 1 wrist pin, but it will take that long to clean all the crud off the castings. (My parts guy suggested that if I wanted to keep my engine clean and green, I should leave the oil in the jugs it came in) :D
