    The piece of crap that was in the White House last said you would never seen unemployment down where it is today, also said that those manufacturing jobs were gone for EVER, EVER he said, really what happened, we have a President that grabs a little Volvo, better than grabbing a Weiner, calls out Rocket Man, tries to find out who really screwed up the election (Clinton) brings back oil, has really lowered unemployment, is really trying to fix the southern border problem (less warren/sanders voters) if the guy pooped out gold bricks and cured cancer the America hating left would still find something to impeach him, how about we impeach THEM, how about we declare the Democrat party a Terrorist group, they really hate America and really try to harm us, all the left talks about is about everyone else in the world and what they think, who cares what they(any other country ) thinks, how about we the working people of this country think, do you live by what others think or what is right for you ??? Impeach the Democrats and declare the them Terrorists.(not the NRA).

    Isn't it funny under Obama we could spend bunches of money to buy gas for our cars and trucks and it was all imported oil, but 3 years under Trump we produce so much of our own oil that we are now having layoffs in the oil field for having to much oil??? Just one more example of the treason Obama committed against the American people that gets covered up, Trump wants to investigate corruption in Ukraine and the Obama team (Liberal Democrats) want him gone??? And if you think that Obama did not sell out American coal for the benefit of third world nations your a moron, he screwed us to help his baboon farmer nations have cheap energy while we got stuffed with gas, and NO it was NOT about clean air it was about helping other nations at the expense of the American tax payer. Warren/Sander will bankrupt this nation and that is the plan, to make us no better than any other nation. Our new national slogan will be, America just another shit hole.

    That reminds me of a poem I heard many years ago- many years. "When I was young, and didn't have no sense- I peed upon an electric fence. It singed my hair, and scorched my balls... and made me shit in my overalls!" Author unknown.

    We have both tracks around here. Magnolia and Mount Vernon are the only 1/8 miles tracks, all the rest can run 1/4 mile. Since most of the local IHRA bracket points stuff is 1/8 mile, DW42 runs most of their programs 1/8 mile. I can remember about 13 odd yrs ago the locals all bitched about only running 1/8. Then like the next year, suddenly they all were raving about it. Fuel cost, maintenance, etc all were cheaper so they suddenly think 1/8 mile is where its at. I don't care, I just want to race.

    Heavy Duty Trucking (HDT) / October 9, 2019 UPS will purchase more than 6,000 natural gas-powered trucks beginning in 2020 and running through 2022. This three-year commitment represents a $450 million investment in expanding the company’s alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicle fleet as well as supporting infrastructure. Roughly 25% of vehicles purchased by UPS in 2020 will run on alternative fuels, said Juan Perez, chief information and engineering officer, UPS. The new vehicles will be equipped with compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel systems provided under an exclusive agreement with Agility Fuel Solutions, a provider of clean fuel solutions for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles. As of October 2019, UPS has agreed to purchase 230 million-gallon equivalents of RNG over the next seven years, making the company the largest consumer of RNG in the transportation industry. Vehicles equipped with CNG fuel systems can interchangeably use RNG and conventional natural gas. Since 2016, Agility Fuel Solutions has provided natural gas fuel storage and delivery systems to more than 1,700 UPS trucks. Over the past decade, UPS has invested more than $1 billion in alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles and fueling stations to help meet its target of reducing absolute greenhouse gas emissions by 12% across its global ground operations by 2025. UPS has continued its relationship with TruStar Energy to design, manufacture and install five new CNG fueling stations in Lathrop, Visalia and Moreno Valley, Calif., Houston, Texas, and Cleveland, Ohio. UPS will deploy the new CNG vehicles on routes to utilize the new CNG stations as well as adding to existing natural gas fleets in other UPS locations. By the end of 2019, UPS will be operating 61 natural gas fueling stations strategically located across the U.S., and outside the U.S. in Vancouver, Canada, and Tamworth, United Kingdom.

    Based on the green colour I’d simply have a guess and say Euclid? Not sure how many brands were painted green back in the 70’s?

    For the ATHS and Big Mack gents and ladies that visited Tony Champion's museum 2015, here is Seduce. It is not easy to pick the 2 subtle modifications, being the B75 hood was extended about 6 inches and the cab was raised about 4 inches, so there is a slight fall from the fire wall to the alloy radiator top. And below the doors the cab was also extended about 3 inches.

    Cab painted, same color inside. A fine sanding and buff on the clear coat and I should pick it up next week.

    Roger Desvergnes wanted to set up his new hauling business, RJD Excavation out of North Smithfield, Rhode Island. He remembered his grandfather used to run Autocar trucks. So naturally, Roger snagged this sweet 1986 Autocar DK64 and >Bingo!< he's at work, picking up the cabbage. 💸💸 Thanks to http://dailydieseldose.com/autocar-mondays-reliable-foundation/ for sharing.

    I probably didn't get over 15 mph during the whole move, but climbed around a 10% grade from the rail siding to the substation. I think I was in 4th in the main trans and auxiliary in low, didn't even know anything was behind me. Grossing around 250K.

    Ok, so we just got back from taking the truck back into the shop and it was hell getting the thing up on the trailer since it wouldn’t start this morning, it was running on just starting fluid, and the fuel pump was working fine... so it took the truck with the trailer holding it’s brakes up on a hill and another truck towing it from the side... it was an adventure to say the least! Broke a brand new chain but our trusty old rusty one held just fine. Enjoy some pictures of our adventure this morning!

    Being a Canadian, with a goofy prime minister, all the news channel are making a bad press on Trump. They make him the bad guy because he's not helping us with China and the Huawei story. They keep bitching him and now they want him to do our Goofy prime minister job and resolve the story. WTH, Justin Trudeau had one job to do and can't do it, he's weak and Trump even told him last year

    Rotate the engine by hand until you get the low spot of the eccentric on the cam aligned with the pump arm, you will be able to see and feel it when you spin it and hold the pump in position. It will than fit close enough to run the bolts in.

    It’s all back in one piece, minus the hood, and we had it out and running around today. It seemed to be down on power and come to find out the fuel pump needs to be rebuilt. I’ll try to see if I can get some better pictures later.

    Old style stud pilot parts are harder to come by and more expensive here. Stud pilot drums are $500 hub pilot are $150 for extra cost to change hubs it pays for itself in long run. Also my old rims are approx 30 years old I can upgrade those as well for safety reasons.

    If you have a "CR" it means carrier If you have a "D" it means dual reduction If you have "L" it is light weight (aluminum case) If you have "P" it means interaxle power divider the number "202", "112", "95", etc, tell you the series if you have "I" it means interwheel power divider (peanut cage in each differential center) Before you know what you need you have to look at what gears are reuseable. Top gears shot (pinions)? Lower end shot (bull and spur)? Was there any water contamination in the case of a bearing failure?

    I happen to like the look of 10 stud hubs. Spider hubs are lot easier to change. I guess it's everyone's personal preference.

    Just noticed your last two post. The filter kit mounts directly on the compressor. It replaces the suction line that runs to the filter side of the turbo. The compressor is trying to get air from a vacuum with that old set up. This tube was replaced on new trucks at that time with a hose that went to engine intake manifold. At that point it's a positive pressure instead of the negative on the other side of the turbo. I'll look for the filter kit number.

    I see this truck all the time when I get sent on parts runs for work. Here are some pictures I took of it awhile back. Masterson used to have a Mack ED pickup as well but I haven't seen it in about 10 years. Thanks, Josh

    This may sound stupid, but has anyone checked the fuel tank, pickup tube, and cap vents? I've seen tampons, fishing bobbers, and even ham sandwiches floating around in fuel tanks causing the same type of problem. I've also seen bent in fuel tanks restrict flow into the pickup tube as well as fractured pickup tubes.
