  6. Navistar Trail Magazine / Fall 2013 It’s the kind of sight that brings all the neighbors out of their houses. Snail-driving his customized six-wheel-drive International PayStar® down 3rd Street South in Moorhead, Minn., Tim Thein, 36, from Thein Moving Co., is carting quite a load. Stretching a dozen feet past the sidewalks on both sides of the street and blocking the horizon is a two-story, four-bedroom house with attached three-car garage. It measures 48 feet across and stretches 72 feet behind the rear wheels of his truck. It weighs 101 tons. A few feet in front of the truck, Tim’s cousin

  8. You should have grabbed me, I'm sure I was just telling lies and bullshitting. I could have done without driving through the rain to get there, had to wipe the trucks off for a bit. Wasn't to many Mack's there, just Al's, mine and the little yellow B67 wrecker that was there last year. I didn't take a lot of pictures this year but for all the Brockway fans there was a cool one that came down from Wis and had a Holmes 750 on the back of it. I have pictures of the Diamond T and the Westcoaster but these were from shows in the past. Both of these trucks are owned by Patrick O'hare from Byron who

  10. I would think it also depends on how you drive it, like you stole it or like you got to pay to repair it. Makes a difference to my usage. Paul

  11. Have fun with it... I've got tens of thousands in to my B85F.... It's worth what its worth to you as others have said... For me, owning a rig that I have memories of responding to some pretty big jobs in is priceless... The sensory aspect of it is huge... The wind, sound of the motor, smell of the old seats, etc... Not to hijack the thread but we are talking about fire trucks..... There are two that even though its been 20 years since I went to a job in one of them... I remember every aspect of the experience... First is my rig mentioned above... No roof, 6V53T repower... The sound and experie

  18. Being of Banished English Ancestry from Cheshire County in England in the mid 1600's for piracy, we learned to keep up with the Crowns Activities, until now its a habit. As for not knowing reasons for holidays it seem to sadly be universal now days. They're a day off for a party or sales at the mall no history. Paul

  19. I spent the afternoon (drinking beer) removing the inner wheel wells and cleaning the crap out of the fenders on the Jetta and "rust pproofing"...IE, half a can of Pendilube per side.....summerizing lol. Gonna have to do it annually I think, about a KG of crap behind each. Also gonna need new fenders in the next few years, unless the "12 year VW rust warranty" will replace em...gonna call next week. If anyone sees a Relfex Silver MK4 (1999.5-2005.5) Jetta being parted, let me know Now, back to the task at hand, beer on the deck, kids playing in the yard. I worked Saturday, so I don't go ba

  20. Happy Victoria Day to my fellow canucks !!! My first day off in a long time. I spent the day summerizing(if thats a word) my snowplow. Pulled the tires, oiled the crap out of everything. All in all … a great day. 41Chevy, I'm impressed you know about Vicky. I would bet half of Canadians don't know we are celebrating Queen Victoria's birthday. They just know its a day off.

  31. fxfymn is exactly correct about you mack, I have a 54 LS 85 ,paid more than I should have, put more money in than I should have,but I would never part with it, it's like my child. but anyhow the body looks like a sedan model (more rare) Mack engines are strong and you have new brakes ,that's good. join spaafam and their is a great muster coming up in june in Jamesburg n.j. (exit 8a on the njtp) I'll be their with my mack , a lot of macks and others on display or pumping.

  39. Update... Got pump back Friday, I would have been much sooner but I was in an accident with a riding lawn mower rolled over on top of me and haven't felt like doing much till now. Installed the pump and started the engine today. Ran much better than before, scored an A-B timing light and set timing. The difference between settings is the springs that basically let the rack open to full fuel at a certain RPM. I am looking for the puff limiter valve that installs in the intake, my pump man says it will be better to not have the engine over fuel until turbo boost is available. The pump was very w
