    I saw those a while back, they must have some work done to them, they claim to tow 5500lbs, thats an American suv. Dont know that i would want to be the tow driver though........ trying to stop then a possible sandwich situation.

    I think they mostly use them to get the road clear, they are small enough to get through a traffic jam and move the vehicle blocking traffic.

    If they need to take a large vehicle far they call a bigger tow truck.

    Fabbed up some engine mounts while waiting on parts, these will be welded to a cradle that will be fabled up when the engine is under the van, they are loose and swivel right now allowing for any number of different mounting angles that may be needed once it is under the van.

    Stuff like this is my favorite. Take an insane idea. Everyone calls you crazy. When its done and working, everyone says how awesome it is. I can't wait to see how this turns out, keep up the good work!

    Lol, yeah Ive heard some naysayers before and you are right, they are pretty much amazed to see what a little bit of hard work and determination can do, its all about the challenge to me and the pay off at the end is second best.

    Had the time to install the injectors and fuel pressure regulator, heres the end result, an engine that runs on its own now.

    A running engine always helps with motivation.
