We are kind of getting off track on your restoration thread Bob , Triton engines and Engineer bashing have taken over.
My yellow Muskeg started out as a center tub and everything else I fabricated ,except for 2 truck doors. Hyd tank , fuel tank , cab, everything tucked inside , with a clean look. I haven't had to work on it much in the last seven years , when I do , I bitch about the designer. Lol.
Your right on about the frequent oil changes , the best thing you can do with these modern engines, they are just so tight , with so much depending on lubrication.

Great thoughts BB

I got a degree in automotive technology back in 1970 and the automotive industry at the time (Dealers) only wanted car washers....

Ended up going to work in the wood products bizz and got my Journeyman's ticket in Fab, machining, electrical yada yada

Yesssssssssssssssssss
WHO DESIGNED THAT THING IS QUITE RIGHT

Having worked my way into the job of field service engineer (McGyver) really brought home the need for the folks designing the stuff to have a grasp of things (Laying on top with a cramp in your butt trying to reach something)


Ah yessss...The good old days

Not to be a critic .....

But I think the same clowns that designed some of those trucks/engines worked for the snow cat builders too during the season.....

I guess I just hate things that you can't get to easily....especially the stuff you will need to work on.

Follow the money

Building stuff in "Layers" may make it a bitch to work on....but many times makes it much cheaper to build.....

Any time you need to spread stuff out and make it easy to get to it will likely cost a bit more $$$$$ X the vast number of units built.


We can rag on designs forever and the concepts are never gonna change much.....

OH.....SPECIAL SERVICE TOOLS REQUIRED

So many things require special tools that...if you don't have them.....Not gonna happen
