1951 Army truck pulled from building after 30 years storage.
I decided to get this army truck out of my building, after 30 years - - I
now have it for sale for $1500 - - - missing transmission, has transfer
case yet; 99% rust free. I had planned to install a 6-71 Detroit diesel in
it with an Allison automatic. I might still do that if no one wants it
before that. Still has the 302 GMC 6 cyl gas engine though.

Cranking over the pony motor and lugging the big diesel to life for the
first time since about August last year, then taking her out for a quick
stroll. This Cat originally belonged to the Rocky View County shops for use
when large objects needed a little tractive persuasion. Pioneer Acres

HTZ T-150KM with Scania DS14 V8-diesel starting -4 degrees.
I installed Scania engine in Harkov T-150K last winter because the old
engine was leaking coolant to engine oil. There's self made adaptor plate
between engine and transmission case. Scania DS14 engine was bought from
junk yard. I made it only minor repairs to the engine like replaced one
broken cylinder liner with new one and installed new nozzles.
