Ordered my IPD parts this morning, been on the phone to Cat locally and ordered odd Cat Only specific parts. Put in a Email request to RS Industrial at Houston TX as to a Head.

MoSHP Trooper showed up today, got the VIN Verfied but the Public VIN(17 digit) will have to be replaced. Agreed all the last six OE and Police VIN match so OK with that, there used to be a Tape Tag on the driver door with VIN and GVW numbers but is all washed out. So for $13.50 MO makes a Aluminum VIN Replacement and comes HERE installs it. $330. for the fees and title transfer then will all be complete until license.

Fedex called today, about someone shipping me a 500Lb Cat and she was confused, will be arriving at Fedex Frt terminal in St Clair MO, I explained was a Cat Replacement Cylinder Head, she laughed. I will drive down and receive there as no place to turn delivery semi around here either Friday or Monday.

Had some med tests run today, drank enough barium to have exceeded my old Nuke Plant annual exposure levels. Swung by CAT in Fenton, had made a order last week, WAS NOT IN THEIR RECORDS, had to Start Over, also had NOT sent my paperwork into Office for a Standing Account number, I had a small Shyt Fit, the parts Manager came listened, apologized but offered NOTHING for the BS, may opt to another dealer and have shipped in AROUND them.
Ended up had what I thought had ordered, may be more but NO List, turd failed to send a Bid too on email, yet THAT ADDRESS WAS on file there.

Anyway, bought the parts I could remember, $2481 in these Two boxes

Rear box mounts Trimmed and installed, will need to use last of KW Spacers on them from frame, brackets need to come back off anyway as was a Little Off 🤪that and measurements too so will slot Upper three box mount holes.

Air System is essentially Tight, some minor leaks that will need to chase down, Cab air ride unresponsive, rear suspension also even with blown bags
no air supplied.
