  1. Little "Sketchy" Lift. This thing wasn't designed to lift this much...but it did it. The frame of the trailer is made from 3" thin wall tubing. The axle is mobile home and the arches are 2" x4" x1/4" Channel. The Ibeam is 4". She bent where the front angle braces are welded to the frame. I think it tried to rack when I had to jerk on it a bit. No Fear...I will use the engine hoist to install the 6v with out the tranny. Now its time to figure out how to shoehorn the 6v53 in there. Steering box and exhaust manifold are fight for the same real-estate. Rear engine mounts will need to offse

  2. I meant to post these photos earlier...I had the pump and injectors rebuilt at a local shop, they charged $1,100 to rebuild the pump and $500 for the injectors. Looks like they paid a lot of attention to detail and the truck seems to run well (that is, without a load on it). I painted a bunch of parts. Some of those parts installed.

  6. I have been making commercially available, industrial V-belt pulleys (among other things!) for a living for the last 39 years! So, this one hits close to home. "Matched" belts are cut from the same belt of raw material. So, the individual belts are as close to identical as possible. Each raw belt will be slightly different. So, 2 belts of the same number cut from different raw material could be different. Matched sets are ESSENTIAL in an application like this. There are standard V-belt groove dimensions defined by the MPTA (Mechanical Power Transmission Association). I can prob

  14. Friends! Here I am! Wow, three weeks cruised by since my last post. I'm here chuckling at your remarks! The truth is several fold: 1. Spring finally arrived in Northern Vermont - which means lots and lots of projects! 2. We finally closed on some land we've been trying to purchase since October from my parents. Real estate market is booming and were literally on a six month waiting list with the lawyer for a closing! Weather is beautiful so we've been on said land - were we have a go-kart track. 3. We've been working to get our dump truck tuned up for working on our lan

  15. Some more And the story in Mike Tee's words We had more than a couple of hundred just in our fleet! At that time though, I don't think there were many more in the country - as we carried a huge spares inventory, if there had been others, I'm sure they would have been around looking for spares. We got a few european Macks passing through, and helped out some of them. We did cover the whole country, firstly based near Dammam on the east coast with our original Aramco contract, then we got the job of carrying all the pipe for the trans Saudi pipeline that

  16. I finally got the alternator bracket straightened out, installed the radiator, hooked up temporary fuel and air start tank, etc. One question; the fan belts vibrate between the WP and crank pretty heavily at certain RPMs, even though I have them pretty tight. Will worn sheaves cause them to vibrate? Any other ideas? I don't want to throw the belts.

  19. I looked at my parts trucks, one of them had a pulley with a lot less wear. The belts sit up in the top of the grooves and vibrate less now. The part number on it is 302GC2187A; they are still available from PAI.

  25. Dave, it's a 15 spd(single over). Many years ago I was looking for a double over to get more road speed out of my 4.62's. Never happened, so I cut the gearing when I added the air ride. The rear actually came with 3.70's but figured I'd never use OD with the old 673 so I swapped it to 4.10's. Now I wish I had kept the 3.70's. The 237 would likely do real nice with that ratio? Right now it is 65 mph at 1800 rpm in OD. I think I could knock a few RPM out of it without hurting anything. Mike, sorry no radio or tape deck. Keith, I made sure it was plenty low enough

  28. You were lucky I went to two different injection repair shops and called all over the place and I found no help on my old 673 pump and injectors. I finally tracked down Keven All and I bought good parts from him. Your truck is looking very good.

  31. I have posted a couple of different Quad shifting patterns on here before. That box can intimidate some people, but it really is not that complicated. Whether using the clutch or not, getting the RPM right between shifts is key. Once you learn how big the drops are between gears, you can hear it easier than you can watch the tach. DON'T RUSH IT! DON'T FORCE IT! WAIT FOR IT! I don't want to sound insulting, so please don't take this next part that way. But, remember to let the RPM FALL when upshifting and RISE when downshifting. I was trying to teach a guy about double-clutchin

  34. I remember this video. After watching it I decided to buy a bulldog. It was my source of inspiration. LOL. Regarding the marketing campaign, I think that this was a successful one. I searched for the statistics of the company and their sales increased a little bit. So they had a good impact. Anyway, I am the person that believes more in SEO than in all these clips. I have a small online store where I sell different accessories for men. I work with the guys from SEO company Sydney since 2020. During this time, the sales increased by 200% in one year. I think that this is a great result.

  35. Had my own little project this weekend. My grandpa built a steel push cart when I was a kid. This past summer when I was up there helping clean out the old place, I was surprised to see it still there, buried in the weeds between the house and what's left of the shed. I pushed my boy around on it a bit (he calls it his race car) and decided it was going home with us. 25 or 30 years sitting outside sure hadn't done it any favors, but a little TLC (sandblast, paint, grease) had it looking & working like new. I welded a nut on the rear, so I could use the same push-stick I had made for his li

  40. Late in posting in this thread, but I have never done a bearing roll on a MP series engine. In fact I stopped doing them during the ASET days. Engine oil technology has come a long way. Also these new engines rarely ever have issues in the rotating assembly. Something causes the rotating assembly to fail, double idler gear and the aluminum shaving associated with it, blown turbo, fuel dilution and the likes. As long as the maintenance was always up to snuff then no need. Like Joey and F said, its a pain in the ass to get to the rods, mains and the oil pump. If you plan in doing this job, pleas
