OK here is a stirrer for you. 1977 Aussie F350 Chassis. 1948 F4 truck cab with modified Peter Built Sleeper cabin.

Motor is a 1991 Cummins Inline Turbo ( 6BT 5.9 Litre 360 Ci ) with Cummins factory adaption to a Ford C6 Auto and a US Gear Over drive coupled to that. Dana rear end has had the ratio changed. Plans are to run it on Bio Diesel with LPG ( Propane ) Injection.

Image

Chassis and brakes etc. are all stock F-350 as is the steering column.

Nice one. I think the door into your sleeper could be taller though.

You wouldn't know what integral intake/exhaust (turbo) manifold set has "OMC" cast on the outside, would you? Tripped over one at work the other day (a backyard full of junk where the shed was demolished).

Thats the toolbox :lol: Do not forget we are Right Hand Drive so the sleeper door is on the other side. Sleeper Cabin has been Chopped Channeled and section to fit and to show you here ( bottom of post ) is a photo prior to it being fitted.

On the Cummins ? It is Factory Holset. Sorry "OMC" has got me :?
Sounds like a Marine Turbo but then I have to admit my Turbo knowledge is not very good. Try a GOOGLE search :)

:D :shock: yes OMC - Yes there is a marine version of this same motor.
The 6BT has been used in many applications such as Pumps, Industrial applications as well as the Dodge Ram etc.

Sleeper Cab at the paint shop. 25th January 2008.

21st January 2008 - Here is the chassis ( 1977 F-350 ) with motor and gearbox etc minus the Cab and sleeper cabin. Still some minor work to be done on the chassis.

Here is the cab. A lot of work to be done here.
Image
Doors have been fixed and we have added Bear Claw latches using the existing door mechanism we have internal lock as per original Door handles, on the outside the handles have been replaced with an aftermarket handle that has the key locks built in. All very trick. Hole in the firewall is for the F-350 brake booster / mastercylinder.
Cab has very little rust so will be easily fixed. All the white marks are holes we have to weld up. New floor is Chequer plate steel.

Are you using a Falcon or similar column?

Through the cab screen photo, is that "Gold Teak" coloured Proof-Tint woodstain on the shelf? Fourth shelf down from the top, about 16 inches to the left of the grey-blue plastic container...

24th April and time to update you again.
Image
Truck Cab is ready for paint. Well still some minor rust to repair. Cab has been strengthened in many places such as in the floor area and round the door hood / bonnet hinges etc. Hood /bonnet ( you do not call it a Bonnet in the USA or Canada do you ? ) has been heavily braced underneath as well. I have found new handles to use and these have the Key in the handle. beer Claw latches have been added using the old F4 mechanisms so the door has dual locks with the handle locking set up.
Image
Sleeper Cab is now back in place on the chassis. All the front sheetmetal ( Guards, Bonnet, Running boards ) has yet to be delivered to the painter. All the rust in those has been fixed.

19th May. Cab has been partly sand blasted so final rust repairs can be done.
Image
A last look at the drivers door with the old sign writing. I will reproduce the signwriting with a new theme. Also note the new door handle with the key lock built in.

Nice color choices. Tasteful. That's going to be very easy on the eyes.

Out of curiosity, what are your plans for the wheels? Alloy? Chrome? Painted steel?

Wheels are Alcoa Hots Shots. Chosen because they have a similar look to the Halibrands and they look good as duals. If you go back you will see the rear wheels are on. I had to import three steel wheels from Canada for the spare and the inner duals.

This will surely be a beauty when rolling.

If i may ask, are you still planning on lpg injection? It works well in very small amounts for economy, but the cylinder pressure spike during combustion wreaks havoc on the small ends of the rods in bigger volumes.
A decent set of injectors will run about the same for a big lpg kit, and the reliability is awsome. What other diesel work have you done? gassers are great but i love how tweaking an injector pump can net 50+ horsepower. Best of luck withe the build.

Yes I am running the LPG injection and as yet have to finish it when we reassemble the truck after paint. Only needs one LPG injector before the turbo. I have some good connections with Cummins and cummingracing.com so all will be ok :wink:. LPG will be set only for economy at the early stage so as we burn the Diesel cleaner but that does give us some power advantages. By doing that the motor will run better on the long haul going to shows and events.

so they will no longer appear. Nearly together so will update again soon.

The best fun will be going to a show with enclosed car trailer behind. Off loading the street hack ( so I can get about during the show ) and then unhooking the trailer so I can drive the truck into the show.

Running boards painted with a body deadener ( gives ripple finish effect ) and color. The black strips are body moulding so you do not step on a painted surface.

Image
Front Guards. Still have to put the grille, headlights back.

What the front looks like at present.

Still a lot to do yet. :wink:

Two of my mates helping me with the project have just surprised me by emailing me these photos. Taken on the 16th whilst I was not about.

WAHOO! That thing is looking good there, Cool23. You'll be turning plenty of heads with that thing when it's finished.

It seems to be coming along nicely now. You appear to be in the assembly stages. Are you finished with the fabrication work?

Also, what plans do you have for the interior of the cab and the sleeper cab?

Only small items to fabricate such as new mounts for the grille stainless steel etc.

I have two seats ready to fit back into the cab. Upholstery is about 90% done. Carpet etc to be fitted. Sleeper cab needs the Flat screen TV fitted along with speakers and AMP etc.

Still a lot to do but it is all happening.
