  5. Matt Cole, Commercial Carrier Journal (CCJ) / April 22, 2019 A new recall from Volvo Trucks North America (VTNA) has been issued for more than 11,000 VNL and VNX tractors for a defect involving the sleeper bunk window, while subsidiary Mack is recalling a small number of trucks for a problem with conspicuity reflectors, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) documents. Volvo’s recall affects approximately 11,089 model year 2018-2020 VNL and VNX trucks configured as 740 and 760 sleeper models. In these trucks, the sleeper bunk window could detach and fall from the truck. The company says the adhesive bond between the glass and window hinge may prematurely fail, causing the window to fall off. Volvo is notifying affected truck owners, and dealers are replacing the window hinge for free. Owners can contact Volvo customer service at 1-800-528-6586 with recall number RVXX1902. NHTSA’s recall number is 19V-208. Mack’s recall affects approximately 43 model year 2020 Anthem and Pinnacle trucks. The conspicuity reflectors on the back of the cab may be blocked by the exhaust system, which is a violation of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard. Mack is notifying affected truck owners, and dealers are installing additional reflectors on the cab for free. Owners can contact Mack customer service at 1-800-866-1177 with recall number SC0418. NHTSA’s recall number is 19V-209.
  6. Have a 2011 Mack Granite with a mp8 engine. When I bought it the one wire on the small fuel filter was not connected but never a problem. Had it serviced today and the tech plugged the wire in and now I have a fault light. Will it go into limp mode?
  7. David Cullen, Heavy Duty Trucking (HDT) / April 23, 2019 Allison Transmission Holdings Inc., the largest global manufacturer of medium- and heavy-duty fully automatic transmissions, is growing its stake in commercial vehicle electrification with the purchase of U.K.-based Vantage Power and of the electric vehicle systems division of AxleTech of Troy, Michigan. The twin acquisitions were announced on April 23. Stating that its electrification strategy “leverages and extends current electric hybrid technologies, develops new electrified propulsion solutions, and expands system and integration level capabilities in alternative propulsion,” Allison said the acquisitions “will complement its existing capabilities to advance electrification adoption in commercial vehicles.” Allison is not the only global transmission manufacturer to expand into the electrification of commercial vehicles; other transmission makers engaged in the growing field of electric trucks include Eaton and Germany’s ZF. Allison said Vantage Power specializes in developing electrified propulsion and connected vehicle technologies for medium- and heavy-duty OEMs and their Tier 1 suppliers. Its primary focus is on battery technology development, vehicle integration and control systems, and vehicle connectivity and telemetry. Vantage Power’s technologies have been deployed in a range of applications, from hybrid repower systems for buses through to grid energy storage systems. David S. Graziosi, president and CEO of Allison Transmission, remarked that, “Through this and other growth initiatives, we will continue to build upon our conventional and electric hybrid products today while differentiating ourselves in the electrification and fuel cell markets.” Vantage Power was acquired for approximately £7 million ($9 million), according to Allison. Allison said AxleTech designs, engineers, manufactures, sells, and services axles and integrated electrified axle solutions for on- and off-highway heavy-duty commercial vehicles. “AxleTech’s highly integrated solutions in the EV space and their presence in Allison’s end markets complement our position as a leading propulsion solutions provider,” said Graziosi. The electric vehicle systems division of AxleTech was acquired for a transaction price of $123 million, Allison stated. Last month, in a webinar held for reporters, AxleTech stated that it focuses on a power-agnostic, between-the-wheels electrification technology that it contends can provide integrated, in-axle systems that provide the same or better power and efficiency as conventional diesel powertrains. At the time, AxleTech also noted that it planned to launch at this week’s ACT Expo in Long Beach, California, “the most efficient electric powertrain in the world for Class 6-8 trucks,” as well as a compact and powerful system for low-floor transit buses.
  8. Kenworth, Toyota Join Forces to Reduce Emissions at California Ports Transport Topics / April 23, 2019 LOS ANGELES — Kenworth Trucks joined forces with several allies April 22 in the battle against greenhouse gases, unveiling three of 10 Class 8 trucks that will run using hydrogen fuel cells developed by Toyota. The trucks were displayed at the Port of Los Angeles on Earth Day in front of about 200 government, port, business and trucking officials, an event held before the Advanced Clean Transportation Expo on April 23-26. The Kenworth T680 Class 8 models were used to build the 10 trucks — known as fuel cell electric trucks — that will be implemented in the Los Angeles area as part of a pilot program, running freight from the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach to spots in Southern California. The trucks will be used by UPS Inc., Toyota Motor Corp., Southern Counties Express and Total Transportation Services. The trucks have a range of 300 miles, and the hydrogen fuel can be refilled as fast as a diesel tank can, officials said. The zero-emissions trucks, which run quietly, have the “potential literally to change the air we breathe,” said Robert Carter, executive vice president of automotive operations for Toyota Motor North America. And the trucks are all business, too, with 560 horsepower, he said. “These things really haul,” Carter said. The program is part of the Zero and Near-Zero Emissions Freight Facilities Project, an effort by California to reduce emissions in an area of the state where hydrocarbon waste doesn’t dissipate easily. To assist with the expensive production and implementation of the pilot, the California Air Resources Board awarded $41 million to the Port of Los Angeles for the ZANZEFF project as part of California Climate Investments, a state initiative that puts billions of cap-and-trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Testing began in April 2017, and the trucks have logged more than 14,000 miles of testing and real-world drayage operations in and around the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach while emitting nothing but water vapor, according to Toyota spokesman Russ Koble. Toyota and Kenworth officials said the first Kenworth-Toyota fuel cell electric truck will begin drayage operations in the fourth quarter of this year. The initiative will help reduce emissions by more than 500 tons of greenhouse gas and 0.72 weighted tons of nitrogen oxide and other emissions. But one problem with such vehicles is the lack of fueling stations. Toyota officials said two new hydrogen fueling stations will be developed by Shell in the California cities of Wilmington and Ontario. Those stations will join three Toyota additional stations to form an integrated, five-station hydrogen fueling network for the Los Angeles area. For now, Toyota, Kenworth and port officials acknowledge the effort is a “drop in the bucket.” More than 16,000 trucks serve the Los Angeles and Long Beach port complexes, North America’s largest trade gateway for containerized cargo, according to port officials — and that number is estimated to grow to 32,000 by 2030. But port officials said they were optimistic. The Port of Los Angeles already has reduced diesel particulate matter by 87%, meeting its 2023 goal of a 77% reduction. Nitrogen oxides also are down 58%, almost meeting the 2023 goal of a 59% reduction. The reductions are all the more impressive given that the port’s traffic as measured by 20-foot equivalent units is expected to rise by 19% by 2023, said Chris Cannon, the Los Angeles port’s chief sustainability officer. The Earth Day unveiling was an unofficial kickoff to the ACT Expo. The event is an annual showcase of environmental policies, sustainability strategies, and green technologies and fuels. .
  9. Roll in some new main and rod bearings. Probable has over 500K miles on it. Oil pressure is OK at 1650RPM so pump should be fine just replace pressure spring. Or... put some 90 weight in it and the pressure should go up for awhile....😀
  10. just bought this 1994 dump with e7 400 the thing runs excellent,no blowby,no smoke pulls great, oil pressure 56lbs at 1650 but at idle 8 lbs bump it to 800 rpm and its 30lbs ,,,oil pump??? already changed filter,oil,and put manual gauge on it,,,????

  12. Didn’t see; but you need to have a breather at top of that tank or you’ll have too much airbox pressure & it’ll start leaking from crankcase vents
  13. Can these guys build these new "Diamond Reos"?? I'm sure they can. Can they build them and make a profit? Sure -if enough people are willing to pay the price. My bet is there is no way that is going to happen. Maybe twenty years ago this might have been possible. But with today's regulatory bullshit and all kinds of compliance issues, I don't see how. "Economy of scale" is a buzzword we all hear about-and unfortunately I think it is a real factor. And by the way- Osterlund tried doing it twenty years ago right? And that didn't work. Hope I'm wrong.
  14. who did you talk to, Vince or Tom? very OLD family run company. they ran cardboard box supplies for a company out of Perth Amboy in the off season. i have known the family most of my life, and the sister is married to me best friend.
  15. Looks many times better now! Good job. I missed the time you purchased the truck, saw it right now. Nice addition to your fleet.
  16. Pull the front driveshaft off the front diff. Split the power divider case by removing flange bolts. Inspect and replace inner cam and peanuts. Outer cam is seldom bad. Reassemble with two rubber bands holding peanuts into cage, rotate slightly as you engage. Clean magnet tray. Fill power divider before running.
  17. I just met a guy this morning with a bunch of moving trailers and a couple trucks for sale. He said come down, make a fair offer, and leave with the trailer. He is motivated to sell 1958 Kentucky Trailer - Sitting for a while. Some rust. Hasn't been moved in about 20 years. 1978 Kentucky Trailer - Was in used until 2014 1973 White Road Boss 230 Cummins 6-Speed - Last registered 2014 1990 Dorsey Trailer - Last used about 5 years ago 1972 Ford F600 with Aluminum Box - Last used early 2000's 1972 Ford F600 with metal box - Was used in Goodfellas movie! Last used early 2000's 1982 Ford L900 Gas Single Axle Tractor - Missing some dash pieces. He didn't give me prices, he just said make a fair offer. Located in Old Bridge NJ
  18. Seems as a pretty common part. At least I saw one in my junk inventory, probably off EM6-285 either. I would ask any big used Mack parts supplier like Matt Pfahl, Global Truck Traders or Sparr on that thing. Too probably it was used by other truck makers of those years but unfortunately I'm not familiar with any other cases.
  19. As said above. Nice truck, worth to pay attention and I hope you enjoy bringing it back on the road itself.
  20. From what I can see on the pics all the setup is parts you can fabricate relatively easy sure with some efforts. Including the bumper since it's made of straight steel with straight corners. The attachment parts seem not needed to be reproduced as an absolute clone to the original since they're not seen from the outside. In relation to that reproducing (fabricating) of the flat style Superliner II bumper would be much more difficult task due to its stamped shape. Lucky it's stll avalible new OEM.
  21. It was and probably still is in Gary Mahan collection. Last time I saw it in person was going down the road to the Macungie show in June 2018.
  22. Searched the web could not find one example of a T-Line other than on the T-line web site.
  23. Used to see them all the time on 395/52. They used to have the last super dog ever built. I wonder where it is now? Would be nice to see it at the West Springfield show comming up.
  24. Haven't seen that one. I'll have to keep my eyes open next time I'm down that way. There were a couple of B's up here in wine country that would haul during harvest but I haven't seen them lately.
