It's kinda funny, going back to the very start of this going on ten year old thread, and read the way we talked about the trucks then. We've come a long way. :lol: 8)

I wouldn’t sweat it, Andy, I doubt mine match up with stock stuff. One of them is a 4-3” straight reducer and the other is a 4-3” 45* reducer. I’ll get these puppies squeezed down one way or another. I appreciate it though!


At least in 10 years I’ve learned not to lie about painting my intake piping, BC. :lol:

As if I needed another project. :lol:

We had a few of these when I was little and dad sold them off. I’ve always wanted one since, and I finally found one. It’s got some kind of Oldsmobile engine and trans in it, I doubt they’re any good. Dunno what my plans for it are, but for now I’m going to just clean it up and paint it so it doesn’t rust any more.

Well now I definitely hate you! Lol
That is definitely a cool score. I’ve been on an old junk kick myself. I just picked up my second (parts for the first) John Deere 420c (crawler). I don’t know what the hell is wrong with me lol

M37s are cool! That's obviously a conversion, inline 6 was stock. I'd go for a 4BT, plenty enough power and fun to drive. Biggest problem is it's a low speed rig, need to regear or real tall tires.

Just enough power to break everything behind the crankshaft.

Thanks, guys. :grin:

I doubt I’ll leave it on the stock frame, the entire drivetrain is pretty worthless aside from how cool the factory wheels are.


I’ll probably end up putting it on a pickup/RC frame and running Hummer wheels on it. I’d like to have a Cummins for sure but I’m not paying 4bt prices. Dad has a 6bt laying around that I could potentially buy for halfway cheap, but for now I’m just going to take the M37 apart, see what I’ve got, and try to stop any more rust.
