    I’m getting my 1978 Peterbilt 352 cabover ready to do some local work and I’m looking for a good parts source. It was used on a farm for a while, then parked for several years, so some things need to be replaced. Im in central Kansas. Any leads- physical shops in my region or online- are appreciated! Thanks for looking.

    I’d also love to find a wiring diagram, or owners manual for the truck. Anyone know of any websites where you can print off a pdf or something?

    On a recent search FB Marketplace had several Pete cabinovers, most in the Heartland. I think farmers are seeing the desire for older trucks, and dragging Ol' Betsy out of the sheds. I'd post a link, but you need to be a member of FB to see it. What exactly do you need that is 352 specific? I'd think any mechanical part is available

    I know about a dozen 25 to 35 young guys that farm they all seem to have this burning desire to own a late 70’s to mid 80’s COE 352 and K100s are high on their wish list

    Courtland Truck Works in California. If you can get them to answer the phone. Lol. They restore and have acres of Pete Parts.

    We have a local parts store that has been very good so far, but I know they won’t have everything. I need a door handle like this (passenger side broke off) upload_2024-3-6_14-22-26.jpeg upload_2024-3-6_14-22-26.jpeg

    Also this driver side step is worn badly, so it’ll be nice to get a new one (or salvage part) or find some other solutions since I’ll be stepping on it multiple times each day…(see pictures on next post)
