    International 4700 4X4 Rescue Conversion

    Truck acquired. Let the shenanigans begin.

    They are less common now that 20' containers are being the base for a lot of things. I would check on Steel Soldiers, even ask in the "wanted" section as people may have ones that aren't being listed. I found mine in a yard full of mil surplus and a friend found a few on Craigslist/ebay a few...

    I remember you getting one of those a few/several (?) years ago. Really like the grills the first couple years, then . . . I had a '65 for years and dragged a trailer all over w/ it. Finally killed it on black ice. [emoji37]

    Air intrusion doesn't necessarily result in hard starts, it more often starts and then dies, and then won't start again. If you put an e-pump on it needs to be before the mech pump or T'd in after (yes there is one) w/ a check valve preventing fuel from being pushed back through it. Not doing...

    I don't know of any ford step vans. Think they might just make cab / chassis models. Just saw the above post, now I have to do more research. ;-] www.DirtTrackTravelers.com
