I don't really know what I was thinking, but my wife & I just purchased ourselves another project. We haven't picked it up yet (it's about a 5 hr drive away), but the price was right (IMO) and I just couldn't pass it up. I've actually been looking at the 48-54 ADs for over a year now. Constantly checking craigslist, etc for something I could afford and close enough to be able to drag home. Well, I think I finally found it. I know it's rough, but it is 95% complete and pretty straight. It has the 235, and it does run. It was also converted over to 12 volts some time back. The engine compartment looks like a spider web with all the wires. Eeek. I'm going to try to post a couple of pictures here (never posted before so...) My plans are to make it road worthy, and then update more over time. Ha, we'll see how that goes! I'm planning on using a tow dolly to get this thing home, but have heard that it's best to disconnect the drive shaft. Pretty sure this will have the torque tube, and I've never dealt with one of these before. Any problems disconnecting from rear axle? Or would it be best to just leave it connected & put it in neutral? I would like to reduce drag during towing & also wear on tranny, etc.
