  4. Big guns moving

    Pictured is a 26" thick hunk of a captured Yamata class BB which was punctured by a US Mark 7 16" (Iowa class BB) gun during a test. The only actual US/Jap BB battle was Guadalcanal Nov 12, 1942 when the USS Washington traded shots with the IJN Kirashima. If you like to read and enjoy US Naval history, I highly recommend the book "Neptune's Inferno" by James D. Hornfischer about that battle. One of the best books I have ever read.

  7. Ford Market News

    Raj Nair leaves Ford over 'inappropriate behavior' Michael Martinez, Automotive News / February 21, 2018 DETROIT -- Raj Nair, president of Ford Motor Co. in North America, has left the automaker after he was accused of "inappropriate behavior," Ford said Wednesday. Ford, in a statement, said an internal investigation found that "certain behavior by Nair was inconsistent with the company's code of conduct." It did not divulge the nature of the complaint, which a spokesman said was submitted anonymously through a 24-hour company hotline. Ford said it had not previously received any such allegations against Nair. Nair had been placed on leave during the investigation, which was conducted within the past few weeks and involved a small number of incidents, Ford said. His departure is effective immediately, and a spokesman said his successor will be named within days. CEO Jim Hackett said Ford "made this decision after a thorough review and careful consideration. Ford is deeply committed to providing and nurturing a safe and respectful culture and we expect our leaders to fully uphold these values." In the statement, Nair, 53, said, "I sincerely regret that there have been instances where I have not exhibited leadership behaviors consistent with the principles that the company and I have always espoused. I continue to have the utmost faith in the people of Ford Motor Company and wish them continued success in the future." Reached by phone at his home earlier Wednesday afternoon, Nair declined to comment to Automotive News when asked about his employment status with Ford. CFRA Research analyst Efraim Levy cited Nair’s ouster in lowering his rating of Ford shares Wednesday to “hold” from “buy.” “While we believe the company has a deep enough management bench to replace Mr. Nair with little disruption,” Levy wrote, “the new leader will face the challenges of an industry that will see rapid change in the medium- and long-term, while sales volume contracts in the U.S. in 2018.” Before being named to his latest position in May 2017, Nair was Ford's head of product development and chief technical officer. He oversaw the launch of the 2016 GT supercar, aluminum-bodied F-150 and 50th-anniversary Mustang, among a plethora of other vehicles. Less than two weeks ago, Nair took delivery of the first GT produced for the 2018 model year. Nair's tenure as product boss wasn't without controversy. The automaker twice had to lower mileage claims for its C-Max crossover and reimburse owners when the vehicle didn't achieve the rating originally advertised. Nair started at Ford in 1987 as a body and assembly operations launch engineer and held various positions on more than 11 vehicle programs in 13 assembly plants, according to Ford's media website. He also worked on assignments in Europe, South America and Asia Pacific. Days before Jim Hackett was named CEO, Ford last year awarded Nair a $5 million retention bonus that would vest in May of 2020. .

    7-2 is "parking brake switch" Does park lite come on, on dash when applied? also, do the brake lites work with low air. on mine, the brake lites stayed on until about 80 psi
  9. Bloomberg / February 21, 2018 MUNICH -- Daimler AG cast doubt on Tesla Inc.'s plan to deliver electric heavy trucks next year, saying its more modest goal to start selling battery-powered big rigs by 2021 is more realistic. Daimler, best known for its luxury cars, is also the world's biggest truckmaker, giving Daimler the most to lose should Tesla boss Elon Musk succeed in producing a semi-truck with a 500-mile range for delivery starting in 2019. If that happened, Daimler would have miscalculated to an unimaginable degree, head of trucks Martin Daum suggested to reporters at an event Wednesday in Stuttgart. He announced plans to start rolling out Mercedes-Benz electric trucks for trials this year, followed by mass production as of 2021. The driving range is smaller than Musk is targeting. Current battery technology doesn't allow for faster timelines, Daum said. "If Tesla really delivers on this promise, we'll obviously buy two trucks -- one to take apart and one to test because if that happens, something has passed us by," Daum said. "But for now, the same laws of physics apply" in Germany and in California, where Tesla is based, he added. The Mercedes-Benz electric Actros, starting with 10 vehicles, will deliver loads on city distribution routes with a maximum range of 124 miles, Daimler said. German supermarket chain Edeka and parcel delivery service Hermes are among early testers who'll receive vehicles in the next few weeks for a trial lasting around two years. Daimler will spend $616 million this year and next on its effort for electric and connected trucks, it said. Aside from Tesla, other manufacturers like Volvo AB are working on new technology to propel commercial vehicles. High costs and limited longevity of batteries have so far put trucks behind development timelines for cars. The e-Actros as part of the pilot will feature two versions with total weights of 18 tons and 26 tons, Daimler said. They'll take three to 11 hours to charge. Broad demand will need time to take hold, Daimler said. "Trucks have to run for 1.5 million miles and then there's a used-truck buyer too after that," said Daum. "We don't know for sure how batteries for trucks will react after being in use for four to five years -- it's very complex."
  10. Big guns moving

    I might be mistaken, but I believe the Yamato carried 20" guns. It would have been one hell of a fight.
  11. Yesterday
  12. Right out of high school I went to work at a local parts house; the owner that I knew all my life told me when pricing; If you can’t f..k your friends who can you f..k. I didn’t stay long after that
  13. doh! I really got hosed

  15. service manuals

    ok sounds good, thanks for the info.
  16. Ice Fishing

    Group broke up Thursday afternoon, 6 people on the NW Saucer of Walker Bay and 6 people in the NE, Sucker Bay. The reel is 4". Perch is one I caught off the Sucker Bay side. Minnesota has a great fishery. Dirty M- Poutfest central is increasingly out of control and/or I'm getting too old to appreciate it. Last time I went I got pelted through the open drivers-side window with snowballs......which is funny and normal....... unless the guys throwing them are frozen, bright-red, drunk, band of marauding dudes wearing nothing but a jock strap. The sane Mud ducks hang out on the North fringe during poutfest.
  17. E7 shutting off randomly

    Dang, same codes and same 'no-go' situation this morning. 95 model ol faithful's not going anywhere.
  18. 673 starter

    When I was checking out prices it said free shipping too.
  19. 673 starter

    It says in the pic that it turns clockwise. But if I remember the website asked you a few more specifics about the starters options.
  20. It never fails, at every truck show least 3-4 people stop and try to figure out what the tanks in front of the wheels are.
  21. b75 or b77

    hell can you give me the phone number for him and where did you find it
  22. Florida High School Shooting - 17 confirmed dead

    I’m not as gracious, I argue the point. Bible supports Capital Punishment. Old and New Testament. You can read it upside down and backwards, but it comes out the same, Civil Government does not bear the sword in vain. My old pastor use to add “and swords are not for giving spankings”.
  23. Happy Birthday! Have a Great one!
  24. KooL piece! Yeah, sort of wish it had been kept up a little better.
  25. I just paid almost $300 for one from my local starter/ battery guy for the Autocar. I thought he liked me obviously not.
  26. service manuals

    Keep checking ebay. Over the years I have bought a TON of Mack paper there. There are vintage paper dealers out there but from my experience they all seem to carry sales brochures vs. repair books.
  27. Thank you heavygunner. That's about half the price I got from my local parts store. Does that turn clockwise? I was told there are clockwise and counterclockwise 39MT starters.
