hotrod or not

Ok guys, I dont think this 3/4 ton truck is considered a hot rod, but you guys can be the judge, this was actually on the old site mod section, I see theres alot of new guys that might get a kick out of it.
Have fun,
kevin in minnesnowta

Kevin, if you get the chance, a complete list of the things you did to build that "beast" might interest someone else to do the same. Just a thought.

Yes I did Jim,
One of the guys posted on the old site a couple of years ago about the turbo guy has been making turbos for IH tractor for 5 or 6 years, Come spring I will drive up to Big Lake and take you for a spin. I thought you would have seen that in the old Mod section, over 4200 views, check out the video link above or pasted below.

A few year ago, one of the guys, I recall Goose posted a guy whomade turbos for IH tractors. I got interested called the turbo guy, -Keystone Turbo LLC- this is the first IH truck he did, there is one other in Iowa. Anyway, my truck has 3.55 gear, and at 60 MPH I was getting some rattle, after posting that the guys & the turbo guy said you have to reference the power valve, I will post some pics of that also. I think with deep gear it dont matter, but I only run the motor at about 2800 RPM tops.

I have some pics of the initial install of the turbo with the big 1904, there is a few throat sizes.
I will try to explain more this weekend.

I am running a carter 2bll now, pics dont seem to work, I will have to edit the.
I will be going 12 volt this spring and either fuel injection or water achohol injection is kind of the plan. This is a toy to me and at my age one truck is enough, I have sold the 38 & 47 a few years back.

Re: hotrod or not

That sounds cool although with my gears I will be lucky to reach 40 MPH with the engine screaming at 3800RPM ( it has 7.39s in it)
