Are there any Shop Forum folks near Rocky Mount, North Carolina? If so maybe we could help each other.
I have a 85 300 SD, and 83 300 Turbodiesel and an 84 280 Euro.

Hey..I've been to Rocky Mount

From Massachusetts...work for an engineering firm...visited the Fulflex plant in Rocky Mount a couple of times....once for a week. One day, went for a long lunch...needed to get out for a short hike...pulled over near some "piney woods", walked in a couple of miles, stopped in a clearing and heard some hissing..my first thought was "Panther?", then I looked down and saw a fat snake slip away...the folks at the plant said "you found a moccosin! lucky that son of a gun didn't bite you!" Found out later it was a puff adder...pretty poisonous, but reluctant to bite...anyway, fond memories from Rocky Mount.
