Looking Great Peter,I like the yellow springs offsets the truck will it be ready for Bonneville this year?When you redo the cab make sure to leave enough room for cup holders Okay !!!I can't stand a truck without cup holders. Have Fun Creating Sean
Thanks Sean. Doesn't the complete gauge package that i ordered from you come with cup holders??
Woops your correct I am BAD again!! If you didn't have cup holders before you do now Sean
Looking good, I drove another 35 miles on wood today and passed many gas stations, sure feels good to pass them up.
Funny, that picture makes it look like the back wheel is rubbing the gasifier! You've actually lengthened the wheelbase, correct? Great to see progress!
You are right, that picture is deceiving. Check the picture above --- 9/10 post. The wheelbase has been stretched 6 inches.
Drives good, but not on wood ------- yet
Great Peter! How's the handling with the new chassis?
Took just a short ride, drives good, does good burnouts ----- no wheel hop. The gasser is a little heavier than i thought, had to change the left side spring rate.
Drove off road, does not bottom out on bumps. Going to put scales under it tomorrow.
WOW, LOOKING GREAT, DAVID-.O
You're kinda serious about this wood burning stuff aren't ya!!
You're certainly taking this whole conversion to a HIGHER LEVEL !! Can't wait to see the finished product, maybe at a gasifier gathering someday.
Hi Wayne,Val, Dave & Chris, -------- thanks for the kind words.
Looks like i can get back to building the gasser system !!
The truck itself is fairly light weight --- 2759 lbs
The complete gasser is 332 lbs with no heat X (inner) no tin insulation, no hay filter
Truck weight complete as shown 3091 lbs.
Hopper & lids alone are 48 lbs
PeterLooks like you have a smoken little woodburner there!! Anyway to tell what the truck weighed before the custom work began? Is it time yet to pull the cab and front end ? If you need to drop more weight a fiberglass front nose would look sweet!! HWWT Sean
The truck weighed 3670 in stock form. Weighed it on heavy duty truck post lift scales, so i don't know how accurate they were. The car scales pictured are very accurate. Yes, a glass nose & all aluminum SBC would be a substantial weight savings. I need to check into a front frame clip with tube A arms & coil overs, this would help with engine position & allow for lowered front ride height.
Working on the cooler. 69 feet of tubing.
Beautiful! Any idea what it weighs?
Hey Pete ,
