What to do with extra parts...LOL

I bought 3 non-op CTD trucks,
fixed one> 11' flat bed, 5 speed> 92 Dually
other one is a 92 5 speed, flat bed- need to re-seal the pump

The last one the body was rough
so parted it out
Still had the 89 engine and a trans out of an airport tug.

When I pulled the 540 out of the Satellite (engine set back 12")
looked like a Cummins would fit

So, why not...lol

until the fuel tank started leaking, then noticed that the uni body was splitting behind the cab
The only right way to fix / save it was to put a tube chassis under it, add the 540

The amount of time and money spent shows in each project. You blended both of my passions. Cool old Mopar iron and Cummins. Your fabrications skills are only overshadowed by your vision. Way cool man, way cool!

Holy Schnikies Dragin!!! Just keep on posting pics of your projects!! That rampage is killer. I'd love more info on that and the Satellite. Is there a build thread somewhere on the Rampage? What's your plans for the Satellite? Going to run it on the 1/4? Don't know if you're a roadkill fan, But the satellite would fit right in on one of thier cruises/runs...
Awesome work man, keep it up

Haven't gotten much testing done on that combo yet


while at the track testing
a few asked about "Where Is the "Shine Runner"

Answer:
I took the 540 out to put in the 72 Dart

I thought about the 21 years
The Satellite has been in my care.
thought about All the different engines
small and big block strokers
broke trans, rearends, drive shafts

after 2nd time out, broke rear
540 / 4500, transbrake
time for a change

I got interested
in the Satellite and installing the Cummins and drive train
making custom solid mounts, linkage, etc.
even using the 1410 joints .

going soon to make some base runs
then
install 60 lbs springs
3800 governor
I did install an electric pump @12psi to feed the injection pump
also skipped a tooth,
while doing the KDP

There was only one correct way to repair the rust issues
in the 73 floor
and I wanted to take the easy way out of trying to get all the fire wall mods, dash pad etc. to fit the 73 cab

So, I married a 92 Club Cab to the rear section of the 73 Crew Cab

I grafted the 73 round headlights into the 92 intercooler radiator support
still using the 73 grill / fenders.
Tail light assemblys will come from my 73 Cuda
to keep the 73 theme on the out side
92 on the inside
ps, pb,pdl, a/c, cruise, tilt
