I'm hauling a 1991 F350 Crewcab diesel 4x4 home from near London on Dec 24th. might be Barney's replacement?
Barney's farm plates run out end of Dec and can not renew them.
got my trailer brakes working and all my lights so he's ready.
feeling like I should have some kind of ceremony for him. he has been through a lot and is not worthy of me doing a safety and replating it. but is mechanically fit.
pretty well the biggest job I've ever asked of him. 7000lb truck on the trailer, and barney and the trailer weigh 10,000lbs combined empty. last time I did something like this it was a C350 diesel Centurion on the trailer 2yrs ago.
should be about 1.5 hrs there and probably a 2 hr trip home> not pushing it !
will keep driving barney but won't be making anymore trailer hauling trips unless its just local.
its been a pretty reliable vehicle , maybe one of the best that I've owned even. almost 490,000km on it.
I'll have to take some final voyage pics .
a very merry Christmas to all Fordtough.ca members.
summer: RIP 72 Bronc, 68 Merc,
