when it rains....... it pours!

So it has been raining here for the last 3 days, when I get a call from a buddy that a local guy has two old dodges that I might be interested in; the benefit of being the only dodge guy sometimes pays off! I get out to this muddy field and what I find are (2) 1st gen CTD's and an 81 W250. After some haggling, a deal was struck and a rescue plan ensued. After 4 hours of sloshing in calf deep mud and water, 2 stuck trucks, lots of ingenuity, and just some dumb luck; they are back at the shop. So from only having one CTD 2 months ago, I now have 4 and trying to figure then next plan of attack......repowers or rebuild.
Pictures to follow

Truck 1-1990 2wd with 622K on the odometer. Truck sat for 12 yrs. Due to the owner dying and the estate not being settled. Primed the fuel system and started on the first roll on 12yr. old diesel!!! Brake system rebuild, oil and filters and flush fuel system in progress. On the video I say 3 yrs from another guy, but after talking with the farmer and finding the registration and plate, I confirmed 12 yrs.


Truck 2-1993 2wd dually with 202K on the odometer 5spd with a dump bed....dunno if she runs yet, back burnered for the time being.
