    It's a Con-Met fuel/water separator. Good performer and trouble-free. I used to spec them. No longer in production. .

    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 it is. Its shaky from my cell but when I pull it back out on Saturday to clean it up, I'll get a buddy to ride the officer's seat and post some better stuff.

    When I first joined the work force as an electrical tech doing basic stuff, one shop guy asked me to go to the warehouse and ask for a bucket of ohms. I went and someone told me they didnt have any. When I went back to the electrical shop i told them they didnt have anymore and everyone busted out laughing. Ive come a long way since then lol. But I too have fallen victim to this prank.

    These cab overs have been at Winchester at our show. The one with D. P. Miller on the door now belongs to the Keystone Museum.

    You did not miss ID the truck, my pics that were transferred to another hosting service has /had issues. I made an error and didn't catch it which apparently is a major crime here. I only learned of that other Marmon when my son took that photo of it on Main Road about 2006 when he asked me why my truck was at the run down store . It is the twin of mine less the interior and lettering. It also matches the one that Allie Lizza had at his asphalt plant in Glen Cove so there were 3 close matches on L.I.. Since it seems to be a major issue I had the moderator delete the offending photos and when I return home around Thanksgiving I'll take a few pics of mine with a large dated card on it so there is no question, unless you have a specific way you want proof of it. . you tell me what you need. I posting the wrong photo with the caption. As for you never seeing it on L.I in the past 30 years, a side from being parked on the remains of the farm off Roanoke Rd for years it has been in Virginia mostly since 2013. It has been at the LI Power Association show at Hallock Farm in 2007 and 2008 The ATHS show in 2007 at Brookhaven Airport with Allie Lizza's truck and in Pete Horan's O.B. Sand Touch a Truck event last year.

    For those who don’t remember (it’s been a while), I own Mack B85F1242, a 1957 B85F that spent its entire firefighting career with the Gettysburg, PA fire department. While in college I was a firefighter there. I had the honor of driving and riding the officers seat to this rig’s last actual fire and it’s last alarm (a false alarm nonetheless). This truck stood by for President Eisenhower when his helicopter landed at the family farm in Gettysburg and was nicknamed and dedicated by the President as “General Ike. I bought it with my father-in-laws help six years after it was retired in 1998 (bought in 2004 or so). We restored it and unfortunately it has sat for about 8 years. I replaced the batteries, flushed the fuel system and fired this old boy up for the first time today in 8 years. The 6V53T that it was repowered with in the 1970’s ran like a champ. The Allison auto never missed a beat. Drive it 20 miles home from the storage facility where we keep it during rush hour in Orlando and it got tons of thumbs up. It’s dirty and will be washed at my middle school son’s car wash fund drive on Saturday (I’ll be washing it while the kids wash cars). I’ll post pics and a better video that doesn’t include the stress and shakiness of driving a 60 year old truck in rush hour traffic on Saturday.

    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.

    AutoBlog / November 17, 2019 AM General just bandied its Jeep Gladiator Military-Grade Truck (MXT) at the Annual Meeting and Exposition of the Association of the U.S. Army a few days ago. Now, General Motors Defense presents its entry based on the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 at the same gathering, while overseas, Ricardo worked a martial transformation on the Ford Ranger for the British Army. The GM Defense Infantry Squad Vehicle is competing to win an Army contract for 651 ISVs slated for production over the next five years. The contract specs call for a vehicle capable of carrying nine solders and gear at highway speeds in extreme conditions on and off-road, light enough to sling-load under a UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter, and with a footprint small enough to fit in a CH-47 Chinook helicopter. Starting with the Colorado ZR2 helps keep costs down, another cost-efficient measure being that 70 percent of the Colorado ISV's components come from the GM parts bin. Looking like a scaled-up side-by-side, engineers turned the Colorado into a giant roll cage with skid plates, powered by the 2.8-liter diesel four-cylinder with 186 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, shifting through a six-speed automatic. Underbody plating shields everything from the engine to the front and rear mounts for the long-travel Multimatic DSSV dampers. Proving out dynamic prowess off-road partly explains Chevrolet Performance having run more than 10,000 racing miles in the Best in the Desert series. Nine troops grab two seats in front, three in the second row, two-rear facing seats in a third row, and two more outward-facing seats in a fourth row at the back, behind the rear axle. Their gear gets stowed in the space between the third and fourth rows, strapped to webbing that forms the roof over the ostensible cabin, or slung from the numerous gusset apertures through the roll cage structure. The Colorado prototype will compete with similar looking entries from Oshkosh/Flyer Defense and SAIC/Polaris on the contract expected to be decided next March. And for any who wonder, the SAIC in question is an American company, Science Applications International Corporation, headquarted in Reston, Va. The Army has already awarded all three entries $1 million prototyping contracts to develop their ISVs ahead of the contract deadline, with testing to begin next month at the branch's Aberdeen Proving Grounds. Meanwhile, over the pond, Ricardo took Europe's bestselling pickup, the Ford Ranger, and turned it into a prototype "general purpose utility vehicle for defense, policing, security and rescue services roles." The English engineering firm already makes the Land Rover Defender 110-based Weapons Mount Installation Kit (WMIK) and builds the General Dynamics Foxhound in use by the British Army. The same Polaris Government and Defense that's working with SAIC on the U.S. Army ISV provided assistance on development work. For the Ranger, Ricardo started with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost diesel Ranger putting out 210 hp and 368 lb-ft. shifting through a 10-speed automatic. From top to bottom there's a ring-mounted weapon system in a roll cage over the bed, similar to that on the WMIK, armored glass, four-point harnesses for all occupants, lightweight yet heavy-duty bumpers, rock sliders, NATO infrared reflecting (IRR) paint, ballistic underbody armor for the radiator, engine, and fuel tank. The 24-volt electrical system's been upgraded to provide reliable power and electromagnetic compatibility for operational theaters. The bed holds at least seven jerry cans, and options include rollover protection and beefier suspension, brakes and wheels. .

    Not really sure what this does or how it works. Never had one like this on any of my trucks. Can someone explain how it works and whatnot? Not sure if it's some sort of fuel/water separator but its none of the styles I'm use to. Thanks

    Wasn't able to verify what was under the hood. The door tag said 773 which is for a DD 8V71N, but it appeared the tag had been moved around. Either way , it looked like a fine puppy to visit the Spa.

    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

    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.

    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.

    The fuse box that goes bad is the EPDM. The fuse box behind clutch pedal. Pull some relays out and check for corrosion. Replace EPDM (fusebox) if any corrosion found. The windshield leaks and water gets in EPDM and causes corrosion.

    Be nice to see the R model cab assembly reproduced in aluminum and supplied to independent truck builders for fitment. I always liked that "driver's cab" layout except for the propensity to rust.

    Yup, crank the glass to the bottom. It needs to be BELOW the top of the channel at the top of the door panel. Then, with some wiggling you should be able to persuade it out of the door. My drivers door panel falls out easily. My passenger door takes lots of very carefully said cuss words! I'll let you use the words I use....just can't type them on the forums LOL!!! Start with George Carlins 7 words you can't say on TV...that's a good start.... I see you are using tape on the door to help with not destroying the paint. I finally had to do this with my new doors. Ugh, the old doors were much easier to work on!!

    This 361 is for sale near me. It has an 8V71 and a 13 speed(I think). It hasn't been run in 4 years but had not problems when it was last run. It has been off the road for 10 years. It has some rust. Worst in the fenders. He is asking $3500 for it. It is in boyertown pa. I am tempted but have spent my money on other junk. Mike

    We had a used 361 for a short time, the one in the middle,350 Cummins,10 speed (it had been Huskydrive originally),pretty good truck,allthough I only ever drove it a few times traded it in on an F-Model because we needed something with a sleeper on it. The wheelbase on this one was just too short.IIRC, they allowed 2500.00 trade against the F-Model?...wish I still had it now!.............Mark

    Change the clutch cable!The clutch cables can feel fine with no load on them but once loaded they become stiff.
