Out with the old, in with the new

We pulled the original M24 power plant, the twin Cadillac Series 44T24, out of the engine bay before we moved the hull into the workshop, and as the pictures show, those engines are probably not going to drive anything anytime soon. So, we are installing a new (used) engine, a Perkins V8.640 with an Allinson automatic gearbox. Thus, the M24 is going from a twin engine to a single engine setup, and from gasoline to diesel. We think we might be lucky enough to be able to fit the engine to the controlled differential with a very simple modification of the differential itself.

GMC 352 year one – continued.

I løbet af foråret og sommeren 2016 blev 352’eren så småt klar til maling. Vi startede i lastbilens hjerte, med motoren, som fik et godt lag “battleship grey” d. 3/8.

During the spring and summer of 2016 the 352 was slowly prepared for painting. We started with the heart of the truck, the engine, which received a solid coat of battleship grey on the 3rd of August.2016-02-20 16.05.412016-04-16 11.11.102016-04-16 11.57.36 Læs mere GMC 352 year one – continued.
