I guess I better introduce myself. Been lurking here for over a year now just became a member a few days ago. I am from Springtown Texas. I am a diesel mechanic with my own shop and a small fleet of peterbilt trucks about seven to be exact I do all my own work on my Riggs from front to back.and build scouts for my hobby. Had a class c once couldn’t wait to get rid of that thing before it fell apart. Always loved the look of the old birds and the quality they put into them. Will be looking to own one of these fine rides pretty soon I hope.

Welcome Heath! Great to have more talent in the group!! You won't find a better group of people to hang out with than the folks here (present company excluded - we're incorrigible).

Welcome Heath. Do you do any work outside of your fleet? Maybe on two strokes?

I usually dont because i am so buisy keeping mine going.but i would probably help some people out with minor stuff like running rack or rolling in some main bearings, somthing i can do in a day.probably no overhauls at this time becouse i couldnt get it out in a timely manner, couse my shop is tied up most of the time with my riggs. That being said i am planning on getting rid of some of my trucks and drivers and scale down to me my nephew and my dad so that may free up some space for others needing major work. I havnt turned a wrench on an old 2 stroke in a long time they are pretty simple engines one of the most dependable motors i have seen as long as you keep horsepower in a respectible range. Youres would be electronic i would have to see if my scanner would work with it to read codes , i have a detroit,cat and i think allison program i will have to check on the 2 cycle
