    I remember a few months ago Port Canaveral got this one to help lift rockets off of the ships they land on after they've come back from space...

    The first stage of the fuel water separator uses a pleated paper element to change water particles into large enough droplets that will fall by gravity to a water sump at the bottom of the filter. The second stage is made of silicone-treated nylon that acts as a safety device to prevent small particles of water that avoid the first stage from passing into the engine. Water and contaminants have a direct impact on the service life and performance of diesel engines. Besides being abrasive to engine components and cylinder walls, water and contamination displaces diesel fuel’s lubrication coating on the high precision injector components, causing tip erosion, surface pitting, fuel pressure loss and poor performance. If the separator fails, any water in the fuel can wear away lubricants on the diesel fuel injectors. Unfortunately, there is no way to completely prevent water from contaminating fuel. Condensation is constantly forming inside fuel tanks year round plus most stations don't check their in ground tanks for water. I regularly check the fuel water separator every third fuel up and open the valve on the bottom to drain the water from the water separator. IMO it's cheap insurance against issues and aside from checking and an occasional drain it's trouble free and no effect on performance. Paul

    This is our favorite kind of #TBT post. Back in 1928 The Yannuzzi family started their business. Fast-forward to 1964 when this #AutocarDC came into service to be driven by the founder's grandson, 3rd generation driver, Jimmy Yannuzzi. And guess what they did next? You guessed it: Bought more Autocar trucks. Like this 1965 ten-wheel dump that Jimmy's dad, Carmen, drove. The Yannuzzi fleet topped out at 15 trucks, mostly Autocar. Check out the new DC here: www.autocartruck.com/dc Always Up - Autocar Trucks .

    Here is the largest crane shortly after finally assembly a few months back. There is actually a second crane on site now, slightly "smaller" in capacity. It has a pad on the other side of the dome. It's a very impressive sight to see both booms in the sky at the same time but very difficult to get in the camera frame!

    I don’t see where their profitability should play into the rezoning. Does the project fit the area and do they meet the criteria.

    Same here. The logic built into these emissions system is all the same. It can be summed up...........”If I’m not satisfied with what’s coming out of your stack today your done working till I am”. PLN use to crack a million on old lubricants, be interesting to see how far modern lubricants push it past? Guy I know bought a fleet of pre-03’s from Manders Diesel and runs them profitably @ 7MPG, Maxi’s. 10-12 trucks. There are people making comfortable livings off old metal. The multi-million $ power plant south of here turned in their old D4 for complete refurb. All hoses, pumps, and a new Powertrain. Reason.....they don’t want an 1,100 degree regen going on while it’s rolling coal dust and pushing piles. If it would pop smoke on top of that coal pile(mountain) all worse case scenarios would play out. It’s case by case, not a cookie cutter topic.

    I acquired this truck from a friend, Russel Turner. He found the truck years ago and then started the restoration which got as far as the frame and rebuild of the engine. (not crazy about the red engine and intend to paint it to what I believe is the factory color......a gray?) This is a unique BM as it was delivered in San Francisco in 1937 with factory upgrades such as the larger gas motor (BX) air brakes, aux transmission, larger wheels/tires, to name a few. And it was a C cab as well. Hope to have it done for the 2020 truck shows. I like it as it has the early F model look to it.

    Remembrance day is what its called in Australia It really is quite impressive to see all people from all walks of life just stop work and gather and then return to work without a word been said I was googling before and according to Wikipedia the numbers of men lost in WW1 and also the percentage of the population is quite interesting https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_I_casualties#Casualties_in_the_borders_of_1914–18 Well worth a look Paul

    Love my Ingersoll starter! Was at diesel drags last week and had guys come over and ask what kind of starter i had. They never heard of an air starter.

    Pretty sure that's an early Western grill minus the lower portion which I believe attached to the bumper. Replaced with newer style Western grill around 69/70.

    Likely a 10-12% DEF consumer? OEM's are going to no EGR which means cylinder temps so hot there's barely particulates, but then have to mitigate the mega-NOx.

    I have a 95 e7-350 triaxle. In the last 10 years since we've owned it we have had the valve covers off once for valve adjustments. 19,550+ hours on it, great running truck, completely stock. A little light on torque, but we couldn't ask for a more reliable engine. Oil pan leaks bad, but new gasket is on the shelf for this winter.

    Saw this little rig today. Markings on the dashboard indicate it had been a military vehicle. Exterior painted with a roller. Modified sheet metal for the front mounted winch.

    KKergall I thought so but the parts guy that worked as a parts guy for triple city's mack before moving down to cook's as a parts guy said no only one. 41 Chevy I have to agree with you the compressor that is on it is not the original style but I asked and all I got was I need the truck model and serial number. I know you can't remember everything but lately all I get is I don't know. I forget but it was almost 40 years ago when I worked on the mack fleet. I had to drive 30 miles to show the guy that yes there is a seal on the adapter cover for the smoke valve Thank you for your information.

    Well here's where I let the cat out of the bag because several of you wish that you had my time. I'm salaried at work and run the shop, when the work is done, parts ordered and the shop cleaned I work on the 75 til the next job shows up. The boss doesn't care, I work seven days a week so something gets done on the 75 everyday.
