cab will tilt foward 30 degrees with a remote switch for accessability. engine is behind the cab, so this is storage and radiator, intercoolers...batterys, etc.

Engine is back. Machinest thought it was a joke. Said the block still had hatches in the cyls. New firerings, bearings etc. Going back together now. tranny is built and ready to go. Body is going to body for filler and sanding them off to paint. Getting ready to come together...

Engine had 200K miles, so I guess Cummings has got that figured out.

I'll post pics of the progress...
