Installed a new Cummins 4 cylinder turbocharged - after cooled diesel engine with 5-speed over-drive transmission. The heart of the engine cooling system is a custom built all aluminum radiator with coolant recovery reservoir & custom anodized aluminum M Series cap, (see a top view of this cap in the photo link for this truck, the one pictured has our logo machined in the top. We can supply a custom cap with any logo you choose). The system also includes a coolant filter with an easily replaceable spin-on filter element. The Cummins has spin-on full flow & by-pass oil filters along with a K&N reusable high flow air filter; recommended by Cummins for maximum engine life.
All new custom wiring, enclosed circuit breaker box, 12-volt system using 3 high amperage batteries & 150 amp alternator to provide needed power for a large rear mounted electric winch to be added in the future. Original gauges were utilized with the addition of a tachometer & hour meter. A Signal-Stat turn signal system was installed. New instrument panel switches were installed into the original format. A large capacity master disconnect switch was installed at the battery box along with the control solenoids & 125 amp fuses for the Cummins intake air coldstart grid heater which is activated by a push button switch on the instrument panel.
All drive train components were 100% rebuilt using all new bearings & our seal upgrades. The differentials got 4.89 gearing & ARB Air-Locker upgrades as well. Brake system was upgraded to 4-wheel disc & a dual reservoir master cylinder. All new system fluid lines were installed also. A new hydraulic power steering system was installed; the original steering wheel & column assembly was kept in place for an original cab appearance.
The winch was rebuilt & now utilizes a certified rope assembly which consist of 175' of ½ " cable with grade 100 - leader chain, hook, & connecting hardware. The leader chain is inserted into a Kevlar sleeve. This stops chain rattle during vehicle operation, protects against the chain damaging items during winching operations, etc. An extreme heavy-duty 12-volt electric windshield wiper system was installed per owner specs. This truck will be used in hard Colorado winters, the owner wanted a wiper system that was up to the task. Extreme duty arms & blades complete the system.
