Take a drive over to St Mary's and see Joe @ Joe's diesel service. A little tuneup on the injection pump will make a world of difference!

Last time I saw Joe, he was the only guy around that could come up with a ring gear for me . I'm running a 354 Perkins from a 1966 Dodge PD600 in my 88GMC 3/4ton crew cab. Different flywheel than the farm stuff.

Ever see the cut down Pete with a dot 4 perkins? Nice! Took me for a ride that day when he was test driving fuel pumps on that truck. Slick job!

Wasn't that a Mercedes bus? I like the micro switch shifter!

Used to like J&M Diesel in London, but he leased his shop to Chatham Fuel Injection. They're ok, but I liked John's work a lot better. Good warranty and relatively cheap.

John Terhorst is running the place again. It's still leased by chatham fuel injection though. Apparently the guy that was running it ran off with the money or something...

Good to hear. I used to use John for all my big truck work when I lived in Lucan, but after I moved down here, I tried Chatham with a Cummins PT pump. Once. About 3 months later I took the pump to John. Get the picture?
