Went to one of my favorite junkyards yesterday--looked for a set of unbroken cupholders for my 95 Contour--only had 15 of those cars in the yard!--3 actually were identical,V6,same color,etc! finally found one that still had functional cupholders,they must be a hot item--cost me a whopping 5 bucks...but after I found them,I walked over to the truck section.. All the 6.2 trucks that were there a month go are GONE!--only 1 new diesel arrival,looked a lot like my 82 K20,propped up on another truck--looks like the 14 bolt is getting ready to go to a new owner..I wish I could find theese trucks before they hit the junkyards--many of them look as good or better than what I'm driving! They cleaned house on most of the 73-87 trucks,they had 40+ a month ago--now there is only a dozen or so left--I guess anything with any weight went to the crusher--a huge pile of transfer cases as big as a school bus have dissapeared--many NP205's were among them--all gone now.. Then I saw a chassis with only a motor,tranny,and rear end(dual wheels)--upon closer inspection,I realized it was a Fed Ex step van,they peeled off the entire aluminum body and evidently scrapped it...then I look at the motor-- A CUMMINS 4BT TURBO DIESEL--with a TH400!--and a 14 bolt FF rear with brand new leaf springs,still had the tags on them!--and 19.5 inch wheels with like new tires,and I thought it was strange they had the regular 8 lug bolt pattern(I wonder if you could bolt them on a pickup--instant lift kit! ) The only damage to the motor was the intake was broken off where the aircleaner was likely attached,the probably ripped it off when they took off the body with the forkloader--didnt look like a big deal to fix-I found a side mirror on the ground and placed it over the open hole so rain wont get in- -one thing that puzzled me was it had the motor mounted straight up and down,not tilted!--it did have a thin adapter plate between the tranny and motor,the TH400 also had a "rebuilt" sticker on it--I thought"what a score for someone who wants to do a diesel conversion!"...I left quickly,without asking about it--before that "someone" was ME!! Oh,that late 80's K30 4x4 with the Dana 60 is still sitting there,it was moved from the parking lot to way down back where the step-van was--but its near a big pile of scrap,I would not doubt if its going to the shredder soon!--has a nice plow frame and many other good parts--its a sin what gets junked around here... .I need to stay away from the junkyards!--I get very bummed out to see them scrapping all the "good stuff"--to make room for more late model tupperware cars that no one bothers to fix...makes me sick! I wish I had he cash to buy all theese "goodies" and either use them or re-sell them,rather than see them sit out in the weather until they ARE junk,then scrap it--rather see someone get some use out of the stuff!.
