That L-series doghouse made my eyes light up...

Re: R140

How much sludge can an SD220 handle? Engine was running. Sat for a year. The oil filter is totally plugged, fair amount of sludge in the pan and thick goo on the valve train...just want it to yard drive for now.

Re: R140

I'm not the engine guru here but I'd clean up what I could get at and then do a couple of short interval oil changes of a few hundred miles with inexpensive Walmart oil to clean it out some more and then switch over to my preferred brand and weight. The modern oil should hold a lot of the old sludge in suspension.

Some photos from yesterday. I need a winch for my r180. I keep using her for pulling things.

Re: R140

Indeed. I love those trucks too. I sold that one though. Shortbed 302. I've done a ton of work tomit but needed the cash more.
