  1. Past hour
  2. Sounds like a real "If-maybe" kinda thing. If they are willing to offset the cost, might be worth it. Would you still be an employee or sub-contractor at that point? Is one better then the other when it comes to the truck deal? Our trips to PA or IN are random and we've done it for decades. Then one trip to PA about 7-8 yrs ago got the driver pulled over by DOT because they saw no signs/DOT on the doors. Bam, busted. Again, for the random trip over and to avoid all the paperwork(IFTA, Med card, audits, etc) I would have to deal with just for it, we use the pickup/utility trailer and play "we're just J Q Public with a trailer".
  3. Today
  4. I always replace the cups with injectors, I don't like doing the job twice
  5. The pics off my iPhone 6 are always sideways to the normal perspective. The best way I have found, so far, is to send my pic to my Gmail at a reduced size and post off my Gmail. Otherwise I send them to my laptop, reduce the file's size and upload with few issues.
  6. Chris, Welcome and congratulations on your special purchase. Can you post some pictures here for those of not on Facebook?
  7. I use the BMT thru Tapatalk never have an issue I have the iPhone 6s... I think before I went through Tapatalk I couldn’t send them either...bob Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Requirements:

    They currently have two semi tractors and flatbed trailers. These along with a straight truck. Both tractors are licensed to 80K, the straight truck for 36K, and the temporary permits are $11.00 each time. They could use at times a third tractor and trailer, but the work is seasonal so really not an option citing cost(s). If I bring my tractor and trailer on they would be willing to support the expenses of the endeavor to lessen them overall for all parties. I don't know how long or many trips per year into the adjoining states at this writing. My Mack would be licensed for 80K also. They have 2001 International 9200i tractors and 48', and a 45' closed tandem composite trailers. Both are air ride. 72K is about what a trailer load is dependent upon moisture content. Never a problem with axle weight I've seen so far.
  9. There’s water, water everywhere, and little of it being transformed into fuel. Nikola Motor wants to change that – as well as the way fleets pay for trucks and their fuel – as it rolls out the new hydrogen-powered Nikola Two. View the full article
  10. Take note if this happens after a hard days work! if so you may have a injector cup issue!Is fine to replace injectors however if the cups are pitted you are wasting injectors they need to mate properly!
  11. Hi everyone my name is Chris Sampson I just recently purchased a 1937 Mack that had been on here years ago . I purchased the truck out of VA it was a 1of1 experimental truck built for Allentown PA factory shop with all documentation and letter from the Mack museum . The truck was sold to a gentleman that had a body shop and converted into a wrecker and use the truck for over 35 years . I plan to start full restoration here shortly and get her back to her former glory and take it to shows and take the wife and son out to parades in it . Be sure to check back for progress on here or you can watch my company page on Facebook c.sampsonmechanical I'm out of stmarys country Maryland thank you Chris Sampson
  12. Hey! I was wondering how common a problem is injector leak down causing no start over night on a MP7? I've had it happen 2 times now and the first time I understand. It had OE injectors, ran really good n o codes. Cylinder balance was off a good amount (I don't recall how much) . I replaced the fuel filter head....which did have a sticking check valve. Same problem. We replace a lot of injectors here because of how the equipment is used. So I did the injectors in that one, problem solved. This one I just did is a MP7 also. It had injectors 18 months ago (conical). No start overnight, have to prime it to start it. Cylinder balance was off especially for recent injectors. The difference on the cylinder balance between 5 & 6 was 50. It also showed air in fuel. We went over all fuel lines and connections and all looked good. I finished the injectors and ran it. Shut it off at 2 yesterday and it fired no problem just now.
  13. The early MP equipped conventional truck had a right and left low beam relay. They later did away with them . They are located in the fuse panel by the clutch pedal. They are locate on the bottom far right. They are the small relays one above another. Position R11 and R12 on the fuse panel. There was a recall on the fuse panel for possible water damage
  14. Anyone know if these are these hard to get? I have the cardboard panel to match too for behind the seats. Value/Trade??
  15. Thanks found DLR the two relays where are they at for left and right day time low beam lights. Thanks a bunch
  16. Like the truck and the steam locomotive on the side of the hood.
  17. I took this in early October 2018. I love this rig and am most definitely in the long line to buy it if he ever decides to pass it on.
  18. I would look for the fill plug because that will be the amount of fluid you will need.
  19. Kinda look like aftermarket KW style
  20. Can-o-worms? They wanted to set up our stakebed to travel across state lines at work(after getting caught without all the proper paperwork). What a disaster. Paperwork and more paperwork(and of course it was going to have to be my responsibility). I told them to use the pickup and trailer and be inconspicuous.
  21. On top of the dash , take the 3 screws out of the triangle shaped fuse panel cover . To the left of the fuse panel there and a cluster of relays and also the flasher. The DRL is usually the tallest of the square relays
  22. Are those cab lights correct?

    Requirements:

    Yes Apportioned plates are easier. But expensive. Don't forget your IRS 2290 if your over 55,000 Lb. Then you'll need an IFTA fuel sticker. Keep track of the miles for each state for reporting. Don't get discouraged yet

    Requirements:

    Good morning. I'm going to bring my R-612ST out of retirement and start using it seasonally, (at least) working with my current employer. If I baseplate in Illinois I'll be covered here. What do I need to do to run into Missouri, and Indiana also as their customer base is barely into both states? They currently purchase temporary permits but if I do this with my truck it will be best to apportion I'm thinking. Thanks, Rob
  25. How much water will they use to produce hydrogen? Water is our most precious resource. It's mandatory for life. We can't drink oil, so we might as well burn it. I'd much rather see "fossil fuels" run our nation's infrastructure than our water.
