    Default Bought Another Topkick

    Have owned a Gen II 1991 Topkick, 3116, 5 sp, sleeper with still only 45K original miles. Recently bought a new CM SK bed to replace that dually pickupbed that came with it.

    Just bought a Gen I, 1981 GMC Topkick with a Altec boom. Haven't brought it home, but it registers 42K. Probably a lot of hours. Bad news, it has a 170HP 8.2L Detroit diesel fuel pincher. The price I paid was for the boom only, whether the fuel pincher, 5 sp and chassis works out is a plus. Cranked, but didn't run, right off, boom worked off batteries. Everything is there and its not ridden with cancer. The cab is in very good condition, no broken glass. Even has 6 good tires. Boom is complete and operational with outriggers.


    More to follow.

    OK,
    will post some pictures when I get it on the farm, later next month. Meanwhile, I noticed I only have 16 post, and that makes me a Jr Apprentice on this site. So I will make this pointless post, enroute to becoming a fully certified internet mechanic. Man, I can't even write this post without chuckling how pointless the number of post attributes to mechanical skills. Does ASE have a test module for internet mechanics?
    Hey, don't answer. I already know the answer...no.
