I loved and still do enjoy working with my hands. However back in 1977 diesel engines were dirty, noisy and slow. A small cam NTC 350 was a big hammer and this was the start of the Big Cam NTC Cummins. In 1977 nobody no one gave extra fuel to diesel engine, but I did. I realized that most owner-operators were gear heads just like I was and if I could drive a high performance Corvette as my every day car why couldn't an owner-operator have a performance diesel engine in his every day truck.
