The Big Rig

Unread post by johnno6 » March 19th, 2017, 8:01 pm

So... finally picked up The Big Rig today. 1980 Hj 45 Really happy with the purchase, it has the original H motor dropping a bit of oil and 4 speed that still drives well.
The sale included a H2 motor and 5 speed gearbox transfer case with PTO out of a 60 series, Bullbar radiator and a few other bits n pieces. So the plan..... Ummmm! Well where does one need to start?

I have heaps of questions as this is our first project ever attempted, but here's here's some pics of The Big Rig.
