In this video I buy a 96 freightliner fl70 with transmission problems. Previous owner said it needed a clutch. It turned out to be the throwout bearing was not greased and failed. Project turned into alot more once I got into it.

  • Taking it down to the frame for blast and paint gets you into Pakistani truck territory, they do that routinely to straighten or repair frame cracks.

  • Great repair adventure! Since you live in such a rust prone area, may I suggest you paint those parts with a rust converter such as Rust-Oleum rust converter or POR15? A rust converter chemically converts the reddish iron oxides into bluish-black ferric tannate which stops rust and seals the part from the elements.
