Update: Nothing but legendary OM617 reliability in a year and a half of driving the shop truck mostly around town.

The truck attracts a surprising and unexpected amount attention in normal use and at cruise-ins. Many people seem somewhat surprised at the MB turbo diesel engine but, so far, no negative reactions (unlike what I experienced with a Toyota 1JZ twin turbo that I installed in a 1936 Nash! Some thought it blasphemy to install a furrin engine in an American hot rod!)

Only change I would make is to install an overdrive transmission and compete the A/C install.

I continue to follow the forum.

The Best,
