Hello everyone, been too much going on to post much but besides mowing constantly with the MF12 due to lots of rain, nothing substantial to talk about with my GT's. I dig reading about yours though!
Our '72 GMC developed a miss that proved to be a valve that had pounded about 3/16" into the head! Half of this summer and fall in my shop has been spent doing the repairs on a shoestring budget meaning I couldn't afford to farm out anything and had to build the heads myself out of a "good" disassembled set from a co-worker. Intake is about to go on.
To get to my point, a coincidence happened about a month ago making it more important to get this truck back in shape. My wife's Uncle, who lives 70 miles south, called out of the blue and said that he was going to unload his supersized cabover camper one more time and it was going to be at our house. Either that or scrap. Well I don't scrap anything but beer cans so I got sucked in! They have been traveling all over the country in it for a couple of decades and he is a retired mechanical and fabrication guru that keeps things in great condition. He said they are just getting too old to climb around in a cabover so they bought a low riding pull-behind.
It is a 1972 Born-Free "Detachable Motor Coach" that without the step-bumper measures 19 feet long with the cabover, but with that said, just the overhang behind an 8' box pickup is a whopping 6', so long that the camper itself has an extra axle! Anyway, pictures speak better so here are some of the camper.
