    The right question to ask would be "What information do I need to provide to get a price?"

    All the big truck stuff I have been around has a swivel. Bigger trucks have air tensioners on the hitch so the ring can't really twist in the hitch.

    I'd like further discussion on "One man can only do one man's work".

    The problem I run into with employees is one man can only do 1/4 of a man's work and frankly I'm lucky if I don't lose my...

    That makes sense.

    I've never dealt with that before, only the grain direction of grained material.

    Metal is grained using a machine called a grainer. Most big sheetmetal outfits have atleast one grainer. Large high power, precision belt sander. Kinda like the woodworking ones, but way stouter.

    From the high volume sheetmetal perspective graining is often done after the parts are lasered or punched so the nesting, material and handling aren't as critical.

    Do yourself a favor and open up the indexer yourself.

    Haas indexers are really crude and simple inside.

    Daydreaming about what fits on the bed of a medium duty truck seems kinda odd no?

    Same as Cummins or Duramax. I don't surface heads or blocks so I don't know without asking.

    I agree that O-ringing the heads makes them seal better if by sealing better you mean handling more than stock boost levels for a moderate time frame, say, 100K miles, maybe more.

    I don't think you are overpowering the belts. I suspect you have an alignment issue that makes it so the belts aren't sharing the load.
