    • Wow guys, don't know where to start! Reminds me of all the idiocy I've seen over the years! Guy pulls out without releasing docklok tears off ICC bumper!Who the F... road tested this stroke? Saw a guy backing in at the old Genco whse in west Mifflin Pa, there is a car next to the dock he cuts the wheel hard right and drives right over the cars hood! I couldn't believe my eyes! Maddog, I saw a complete set of trailer tandems in the right lane of I 85 once, 100 ft of tire tracks behind it and a dry van flat on the pavement in front and the tractors gone etc! The musta' towed it away! Cops and fusees everywhere! Saw a tandem dump body upside down facing backwards under a bridge on I 376 in pittsburgh! No truck! When I was in the towing business during the "tow truck wars" in 1971 in Pittsburgh, We got a call in an out of the way location and Thought it might be a setup, Competing towing companies were shooting out tires etc,long story! Anyway We took my truck and my buddies truck and came to a car over the hill in a rural park! My buddy parked out of sight a half mile away. I winched the car out and broke the first rule of towing! I unhooked before I got paid! The customer takes off! I get on the radio " Bobby block the road!" So he parked a c 50 Chevy with a Holmes 600 across the two lane road!lol I got paid! I was in the old Flying J south of Chicago and was walking to the restaurant and this guy in a Cabover was pulling as opposed to backing in to a parking space,there was a Cabover parked facing out with the driver at the wheel! The guy pulling in forgot about his reefer unit, and The driver that was parked saw It coming and started to "backpedal" into the sleeper! The reefer took out the drivers windshield and part of his door! He escaped out the passenger door! The trailer wouldn't have cleared the truck on his right either but he never got that far!

    • Three people from "legitimate" religions are standing in front of you with a knife. A Jew, A Christian and a Muslim. One wants to circumcise to get You to heaven.... One wants to cut your head off so He can get to heaven..... One wants to give you a cut of communion bread to reveal a path to Heaven.... Which one do you want to stand in a dark room with?

      Hopefully you can help me out. 
      Boost pressure wont build over 30lbs on aset 460. Do see the green wire has some wear through but i wrapped in electrical tape for time being. 
      But the reason im asking is i have a 3-2 code with if you push mode and reset at same time on dash is 5022-02 m128. Code means engine speed sensor but which one. I just replace both 2months ago and i only have one spare and hoping its not the bellhousing bc its a bitch. Also can it feel like truck is in limp mode.
      Still kinda new at understanding mack.but im some mechanically inclined
