That is one big trailer! Does the Ford have a Powerstroke Diesel in it?

Yes it is, and yes it does. I was very impressed with it's power too, did not expect it to be able to pull 11,000 pounds so easily and get up to 55 MPH so quickly. That trailer is 43' long, and our plan is to be able to retire with it and travel the country. Only have 9 years to go.

If it is a late one it has 960 foot pounds of torque. It looks like it needs to be an F 350 or is it. Thanks

F350 King Ranch. It had been deleted by the previous owner, not something I would have done personally, but it is clean running when pulling, very little carbon in the exhaust, unlike my old 99 Dually with the 7.3 where I had to scrub the rear fender weekly to remove the build up. I didn't realize it had a full delete until a week later when I crawled under to look at something and realized it just had a fat pipe front to back and no sensors. I don't know what it is actually putting out at the wheels but it is one strong SOB.

You must love the diesel when you hit an incline it makes a big difference.

Yes, and why I love the Ecoboost too. That tiny little 3.5 can pull like a diesel. The turbos are so small I might be able to fit one on a Saito.

That does look like a nice old bipe. Hopefully the glue is still good. I looked at a couple of old models over the years where a very light twist of the empanage resulted in "snap, crackle, pop. One guy got all upset about me breaking his "perfectly good airplane". Hmmmm, oooh kay.

Waiting on new valve springs for my fa150 overhaul. Strange, the crank has the same threading as the fa180 but the shaft is larger. I hate to ream out my props to test one engine.

Awe, why not, every time you ask me to use an APC, it gets used one single time.

I had 2 APCs on hand I gave them to a buddy for his Balsa USA Bristol M1. He is almost ready to maiden it and didn't have any props the right size. I also gave him some wood props too. I prefer wood over other materials and generally tha is what I stick with.

Me to.
But I do have a full set of APC props based on the Saito specs. Don't have any trouble with them really.
Just ugly. Lol

I will give you that they are good props and they are ugly! The only regret I had was I had a real pretty tiger stripped prop they he really wanted so I let him have it. Les is pushing 80 and on a fixed income so I let him have anything he wants, I have known him for 45 years and I know he has helped me out a bunch so its pay back time!.

APC props ugly? Errr, ugh, yeah, when they're sit'n still. Virtually invisable as its flying by.

They look pretty good dyed black.
