All that aside, I really like your fleet Wes.

I'm interested to know exactly how you mated the two engines together. Did you use something like a lovejoy coupler or what?

I had a  12v71, but at 3400lbs it was a little heavy to work with. I was going to build a giant version of my creations , but decided to sell it instead.

Yep. 2 versions of that heap as I recall. The diesel and the MoPar 318 gasser. In case you're wondering, the diesel version would whip the 318's ass in a drag race. Don't ask how I know.
