    • I took the truck for a short drive this morning. I will have to do something about the steering, I have a bad back and it just about did me in. Any ideas about power steering that a person can afford? I have a machine shop and fab shop I can use. Thank you Dave.
    • Yeah glad you could rescue it. Looks like a winner.
    • I would at least put some round tanks on both sides, Aluminum budds and add a 5th wheel to make it complete. Oh!, and a Winfall subject washing the pipes.
    • Yup, that's US 60! Do you still haul to Modine? It never looks like there's much going on there. One of my friends works at Munters, I see their finished units heading out on expedite flatbeds now and then. Until we found a place to buy, we were renting in the building at the first light after you turn onto US 501 from US 60, the one with the sign about "6003 happy residents and 3 old grouches" on the side.
    • Yeah, it's confusing. We stopped there on the way back from Charlottesville not that long ago. I think the last time before that, it was just a McDonald's and a fuel depot on the one side, and a Burger King on the other!
    • The axle with the brakes of the style you describes is fitted in my DMM Mack. And it's a standart factory equipment. Discs with hydraulic calipers. And damn air/juice mixed setup on the left framerail to activate it. I have no knowledge of how it actually works though. The truck is not running.
    • Candy! If I were you I might be disappointed of what the holes to put bolts in fitting the bogie stand.  And a question. How did the stand and the crossmembers relate to the alu rails about the width? Were those parts off a steel frame?
    • Somebody cut the end of the truck off already andi can get about 28" if I slide it back to the end of the frame.

      On the Delo/Rotella question, it's like religion and politics lol But I naturally have an anecdote! In 1978 I was fabricating a wet tank for my cousin's dump trailer,and we got into a discussion about motor oils.He asked what oil I used in my welding truck ( a c30 Chevy 350 ) I said Quaker State Deluxe.WTF are you putting that garbage in your engine for? He asked politely! He is a diesel mechanic and I think he also has an air frame license as well,so I respect his opinion on anything mechanical! He went into a 20 minute dissertation (fueled by several rolling rocks), on the virtues of Rotella T motor oil Cummins,Mack,Military,rated etc. He used to tune up all his neighbors cars,said several of them with sticking lifters and smoking exhaust(from short trips and low quality oil) were cured by one Rotella oil change! I've been using it ever since in all my vehicles and lawn equipment and have never had an engine failure.I use Castrol 0w20 in my wife's corrola because Rotella doesn't make it! In all fairness I think commercial fleets are equally divided between Rotella and Delo So my results may have been similar with Delo,I'm satisfied with rotella!
