Focusing on the engine right now, this is the DD 8v92ta I purchased from GovLiquidation, missing a few parts but really good engine very few hours

Back to the truck, last minute decision after securing use of GN trailer 3Pm Friday started loading the Tatra for transport to my house in Lincoln MT, loading driving through the night then unloading a no brakes 19000lb rolling chassis wasn't easy but got done by 11AM Saturday morning, so now it's sits at its new home where the rebuild will continue. I'm going to have to build a concrete pad then add roof & 1 side as a temp structure.

The week previous I had removed the Tatra 10sp gearbox, after looking at size of gears shafts & bearings realized I could use this for power transmission from the Allison just by keeping it blocked in 10th gear ( 5th high split) = 0.71 OD ratio remove all other unused gears. Problem I found on removal worn out spline engagement between Output shaft of box & Input shaft of TC this was caused by worn & collapsed bearing on both shafts. I will need both shafts and replace all bearings in the box and relevant input bearings of TC
