    I hope so, but doesn't matter in the long run as it will be a car show/parade unit I assume the 392 is still a small block in nature?

    My new focus is how am I gonna register this as there is no title (but that's ok, older than 72 doesn't have here in NYS). And no transferrable registration. So I think all I need in NYS is a BOS.

    One thing I notice was the girth of components/cooling system in the engine bay. Definitely industrial sized!

    Fellow NYer here.......You may want to try and come up with some type of registration document. See if there's an old one somewhere. When I got my Terra in Maine it had no title. I used the latest Maine transferable registration card to register it in my name and get the title. I just got my title on my 1975 Travelall. I guess I was pretty close tot he cutoff year.

    Issue is that I'm almost 100% certain this truck was never registered in its life as it lived within an active Foundry. The more I read there are options, but the list looks extensive and may take me some time. I think we will overcome that hurdle somehow. Especially if I can get the bill of sale from when my company purchased.

    Took another stroll around the truck and although it does run and drive it looks like a lot of things are leaking. Most importantly the closed knuckle seals on the front axle (assuming it is a Dana 70). Where is the most cost effective place to get a set of service manuals for this?

    I have a feeling the front axle needs an overhaul. Also looks to be the big corporate rear in it. Will need to address these during the brake job. I will be starting a build thread when I can get it out of the gloomy shop and get some pictures of it.

    Looks like I need a CTS -2300 or 2312. Going rate seems about $100-150.

    Yes, he was correct about it's being IHPA.
    Unless you find a used copy somewhere, this is the only place to get one directly. They are good people (but often busy) so a quick call to get information about what you want would be recommended.

    Thank you all.

    I think this is going to be my first purchase for the truck. I actually found a CTS-2300 original on eBay last night going for $45. Its in my cart and I think I'm gonna buy it.

    Which models are covered by that manual?

    I agree. I bought my CTS-2302 (and the manual for my earlier '61 Model 80) long before the internet existed and when manuals were about the only source of such information. The 80 manual went with that Scout when Uncle Sam invited me to join him during a small Asian disagreement, but the much-used CTS-2302 is still in nearly new condition (the red covers are starting to crack at the hinges) and sitting next to me now even. :beer:

    I find the parts catalog to be just as useful as the service manual.
