  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

  13. 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.

  24. I wonder if I can get "Reparations?" My family came to the U.S. in the late 1800's into the very early 1900's, from Italy, ( with Visa's and sponsorship). I hear, Cuomo is going to give "Illegals" in N.Y. $15,000 each for their stimulus.. What the hell is going on? Moths ago I posted that " I want our country back" and I was asked what I meant by that. "I could see into the future" should have been my answer... I pray for us! Real Americans. Jojo

  30. Its always good to keep the truck in good repair, especially the D.O.T. items,(safety).. However... when the truck is parked, and the brakes are "Set"... There is NO air going to the brake chambers... The air is leaking in other places... when sitting.. My guess is this truck has air switches for the tag axle and body controls... If there is an electric selenoid in-line, check those closely. jojo

  32. The main problem is that in Illinois you are only legal with I believe with 6.75 yards in a front. Where as a rear you can haul 9yards. With that being said the big companies run 10 yards in both. We don’t like making untimely monetary deposits to the government, so we run legal.

  37. FDNY does not have "stations." They are Firehouses, because they are second homes to the members that are assigned there. "Station" is too utilitarian of a word and it's use is discouraged in the FDNY. The Superpumper and Supertender were housed in two locations: First was at Engine Company 211 and Ladder Company 119 at 26 Hooper Street in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The second location was at Engine Company 207 and Ladder Company 110 at 172 Tillary Street in Bridge Plaza, Brooklyn. Both locations were chosen for their (large) size as well as easy access to major roadways and bridges leading

  39. DMM had different ratios in the transfer case to supply the torque to the front axle. Front axle's diff ratio was different than rear diffs so the transfer case was designed to compensate the difference. Actually there must be (slightly) assymetrical interaxle diff used. I remember I saw multiple those ratios in some brochure and thought it could be done due different styles (vendors) of front axles used in DMM's during the production years. Following logic you're right about 6 wheel full time must mean interaxle diff. And it would compensate some difference of front and rear tyre sizes.
