    I got a '71 IH 1210 step side pickup with 36,000 miles on it. it has a 304, 3-on-da-tree and 4x4. someone molested it and put a 14B rear and 10B front axles in it, with ratchet straps and 1 u bolt... :cornfused: well i already have the IH SV powered travelette i will be building as a tow rig/truck puller/DD. So seeing as the T-ette is soo clean it would be a sin punishable by death to cut out a PERFECT firewall to fit the DT... :gun_bandana: i figure since the step side needs floor pans what's the big deal if the sawzall went north on a trip up the firewall?? i'm using the inner fenders and dash from it in the travelette anyway so i will have it stripped down pretty bare. I put some money down on the DT466 cab and chassis today, so stay tuned! :beer:

    I can't wait to see it. But is there any concern about the weight of the DT 466 n the front of the axle and frame?

    I'm going to have a spring added in the front, I'll brace the frame accordingly. I figure its no worse of weight than a fully dressed SV with a 7-1/2 foot fisher plow hanging off the front!

    I'm in to watch this one. I've been wondering if a DT would fit in there...

    Wondering how things were going. Getting any closer to owning the engine for your mosquito fogger?

    Not that you asked for opinions, but that travellette is a survivor. I have always been a fan of its yours do what you want but, since you have both I say build up the yellow one.

    yeah that's why i'm on the fence. the travelette has the wheelbase and the size to fit the 466 and tow sooo nice. plus low to mid 20's mpgs.... i have to see how it looks when i get the engine in the shop.
