  1. Past hour
  2. Maybe a stupid question, but is your plastic idler pulley still there? I've seen them go bad and break off the engine completely.
  3. So we took the carb off the Wauky in the F.W.D. It is a downdraft Zenith. It has a Zenith "mechano-vac" governor that is tied to the throttle inside a separate throttle body (which we didn't know was separate.) o A line comes up from the bottom of the engine somewhere, goes into the bottom of the Mechano-Vac, and then a line from there into the throttle body. We have rebuilt the carb, but figure since we have gone this far we should at least take off the throttle body to have a look-see but for the life of us we cannot figure out how to disconnect the cable or linkage or whatever it is. We can find NOTHING anywhere on the internet, nothing in my Wauky manuals, and nothing in any of my MOTORS Manuals. Anyone know anything about these things?
  5. This is how a truckmaker wastes their sales marketing budget. .
  6. Today
  7. Do you do a lot of farming Paul? What do you have for crops? I don't farm, just always been interested in it. I live about an hour away from a lot of farm land. Hay and dairy is big here. When i was a kid I grew up beside a Massey Ferguson dealer. My main crop is snow, LOL. I'll have to go do some reading up on Chamberlain tractors.

  9. Autocar Trucks Press Release / April 25, 2019 This Autocar truck was THE garbage-collecting machine in the 1980s. You could see it for years, roaming the streets of Manhattan, packing and hauling that big city trash. There’s nothing out there today as good as this brute. Yet. Time to get back to work. .
  10. This how it looks like.the big belt is missing in this image.the belt shreds from the inside part (where arrow for number 4 is pointing)
  11. That would work for sure but I've not seen one in eons. Lot more 1241's around here in years gone by.
  12. Did the new cups fix the problem?
  13. Yeah my 98 with 50000 pound rears didn't have them this truck has 46000 pound rears .
