    GearheadGrrl For the sake of an educated conversation, can you please tell me and anyone who cares to read on, what President Obama has done to make our Nation a better place since he took office. If you will, a summary of accomplishments? Full Disclosure so you can figure out what kind of spin you want to throw at me: I am Christian, married, pro life, have two kids, 36 years old, college educated, own my home, legally own firearms, healthcare executive, former fireman, amateur race car driver, can drive a quad box without lifting my left leg, AND vote for candidates who will work to make the federal government smaller and let me and the rest of our Countrymen keep as much of our hard earned dollars as possible.

    So I am a member of the Westmoreland County Travel All Exchange 4-H Club. This is an exchange club where 4-H kids from another state come and stay in PA for like 10 days and then us club members go and stay wherever they came from. This time it was Roseau County Minnesota. Last summer, about 15 kids from MN came and stayed here in PA. Two guys from there stayed at my house. This summer, 12 of us PA 4-H'ers went to MN and stayed for 10 days. The place was as rural as it gets. It was completely flat throughout the whole county(much unlike here in PA). The roads were dead straight running North-South and East-West, forming a grid of one mile by one mile squares. These squares were fields filled with crops except for a few that had houses. The roads were two lane and 80 percent of them were gravel. It was amazing to me. I stayed with a family that had 4 boys, ages 8 to 20. They owned 640 acres and had about 50 cattle. They happened to be baling hay while I was there and of course I got to help. The field they were baling was four miles down the road from their farm. We baled about 150 acres of hay. They were 5x5 foot round bales. To get them from the field to the farm, we used two rigs, an '06 Duramax with a 38 foot gooseneck and an International Road Tractor with an alumanum 53 foot flatbed trailer. And guess who was driving the cornbinder all by himself...... Me. 15 year old Ben Jumper, truck enthusiast. I was out on the open road, in a pretty big truck, justa haulin' some hay. I hauled five loads of 20 round bales each. It was awesome That's me and my MN friend, Brandon. He was driving the Duramax and I was driving the IH. Ben

    Ya know I too am wondering why girly blindly agrees with everything out of Washington and calls us crazy for stating facts. Fact since Obummer and his "appointees" took office our debt has tripled, we supposedly don't have the money for white house tours, military aircraft participation in air shows, our military budjets have been reduced by nearly a third, homeland security has gained more power and reach than any previous government entity in history, our constitutional rights have been repeatedly trampled, however......we had the money to send billions in aid to china, 14 billion to put power in the African desert, we gave Egypt millions in military hardware and the first family spends millions on weekend vacations. Now WHAT THE FUCK?

    Volvo/Mack has a new conical cup installation tool. It holds the cup down from the top edge while you sweg the tip. The old tool held the cup down at the same point as the injector was sealing with the cup. The idea is the new tool wont "damage" the sealing area on the cup. I guess we will see, time will tell. There's also a new cup removing tool that doesnt require tapping threads. It works awesome, 5Xs faster.

    If I had a 110,000 on a new truck and the engine went down, I would park it in their lot and call their corporate office and tell them to fix it or else, after hearing that they were not going to fix it I would take out an ad in the local paper notifiying eveyone of the issue and the refusal to warranty anything, if that didnt work Im pretty sure it would catch on fire in their parking lot overnight one night.

    Shouldn't of bought the trucks then. The guy probably would have let them go cheaper because he wanted them to go to a GOOD home NOT for scrap.

    BULL....; I'm sure the gent who Paul Romano represented wanted the rig sold at a really fair price so a collector would get it, not a scrapper. Not much you can do about it though once it's sold all is fair.

    What do you guys think of this? This guy buys the scope off here a few weeks ago for a song now says he is forced to scap it. Great guy. Shame for the trucks though. Mike

    Yes on the broke rings and your not yelling loud enough. Contact corprate offices. They should get you in touch with the dealers DSM ( district service manager), he can make things happen.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVPol6AZjr4 I remembered that this clip late last night....shows a certain someone driving/operating a certain brand of Non-Mack vehicle ON Mack's test track at the first "Trucktoberfest" and also on Interstate 78. There are views and sounds of proper up and downshifting of a non-synchronized tranny and with only one shifting "whoopsie." I even discuss matching input and output shaft speeds with my buddy who is not familiar. 4:55 in the video should be of interest to Poppa Jumper. And please ignore me being 350+ pounds in that video!!!! Makes me shudder!!!!

    As for Gearheadb.... She is a "sleeper cell troll". She sits, laying in wait, until she can strike. She has been banned/blocked on at least one other truck forum that I am aware of. Long ago I gave Barry a heads up about her. WIth her personal attack on Trent maybe that will be enough to get her banned from here.

    I think the real insult is the clueless minds who think the whole 9/11 happened by the hands of our own government all for oil in the Middle East. Are you kidding me? Who is going to agree to killing 3000+ Americans for oil? If you think this, just throw yourself off a cliff now because you conspiracy theory is ill thought and ridiculous.

    Holy fuck, yer a glutton for punishment. Sorry we could not hook up pally, but with getting the kids their dinner, homework, bathtime, gettin them to bed. blah blah blah......I was hoping you would have arrived earlier, I would have come over and picked you guys up, brought you to the house and we would have gotten some pizzas and cheese steaks, and then I would have done the kiddy stuff by which time the old lady would have been home- Then after the kids were in bed I would have trucked you back to the hotel. By the way the old lady says as long as Buster is ok with other male dogs he can come too. Hyper means nothing in this house. Backyard is fully fenced in.

    That's what I said. If you could've seen my face in the video, you would've thought somebody stuck a needle in my back I was wincing so much. I tried to tell him to use the clutch but he wouldn't listen... Ben

    This could easily be a story about the U.S. Everything that was explained in that article is happening here. Overregulation, an aging workforce, low pay, unqualified drivers, immigrant drivers all happening right now. The old timers are getting out of this industry as fast as they can and from what I've seen the only people replacing them are unqualified trucking school grads and immigrants and even they don't have to be real bright to figure out that living in a truck all week and only grossing $700 to $900 a week and having no life sucks. You can work some shit factory or retail job for a little less and be home every night and have half the responsibility. Great article, thanks for posting.

    A guy here had a couple old Bs and the bumpers were perfect so we ask the kid if we could buy one guess what he does......pushes the trucks with a bulldozer and bends the bumpers. Thats some logic there.

    I introduced myself to him at Mid America the first year he had it together, told him I had an 84 V8 Superliner and tried to ask him some questions about his truck, I got short smartas$ replies and when I tried to change tactics and just ask him about his build he was clearly not interested in talking to me as I was not in his league, I told him I thought he was acting like a prick and walked off, a friend that was with me who is very laid back and not at all easy to aggrevate said :" that guy is an ass". I dont know if it was the Shell Superrigs High horse or winning whatever he won there, hell maybe he had been getting the same stuff for 3 days and was just tired but he could have just said so and acted differently. I was not amused!

    its NOT a Detroit! don't wind her up so much! and they are right, it will fall right into gear. and for god sakes, easy on that old Triplex, parts are like Hens teeth. not nearly as many made as a duplex or quad. other than that go gentle on her and practice, practice, practice. he will get the hang of it.

    The Vmac III engine control specs and troubleshooting for AC engine manual should be number 8-348. There is a revised service manual (July 2006) its number is 8-211 The Aset AC with EGR system engine mechanical service manual should be number 5-111. I found theses numbers on macktrucksemedia.com. I'm still trying to find the number for the electrical diagram of your truck but I may have to pull that off our binder when I'm at work tomorrow.

    Excellent, the job couldn't have gone to a more suitable candidate. I must warn you however.It's in your system now, there's no turning back. Good to hear that the 4H club is still alive and doing well.
