So I bought a 20' 1982 IH box truck with a 345 and an Allison transmission and a 4000lb Maxon lift gate.
The lady at the DOL said that I could register it 12,000 Lb and avoid getting a dot number. It's a 16,000 gvw truck.
That's my biggest concern.
I have chains for it. I have triangles. I have a small extinguisher. Any other concerns?
Also, this is for personal use. I really bought it because I'm renting, and I needed storage. It was a deal I couldn't pass up.
I have my not for hire decals and safety reflective stickers on the way.
Also, will a DUI distributor fit the engine? I had an issue with a distributor in my 392 scout II because it had a bus engine. Something about the intake. It runs great, but I don't like points.
