    loaded some straw next to this old school house (highlands school) this just west of banks lake in central Washington, this next picture is the south side of chief Joseph dam (notice the fresh hydro seeding) the third pic. is the west view of the dam ( chief joe is the next dam down river from Grand Coulee Dam on the Columbia River) the 4th. pic is the hwy.17 bridge at Bridgeport Wa. the north side of the river is Okanogan county the south side is Douglas county the dirt work you see in the distance is Gebbers Farms making more orchard ground. 5th. pic is my last load of wheat straw for the year (cow bedding and supplemental feed) 6th. pic is my last load of honey crisp waiting to go to Selah Wa. for storage and packing. this 7th. pick is Bill Harwood's 53 Kenworth trailer tooter, I used to work with bill when I was road building in the Columbia basin, he farms just south of Quincy after he retired he shorted up his spud truck and this is the result.

    Billy T: I didn't check but I think the freightliner is a mid 70's it has a spud box on it, there are some nice clean hay haulers that run around the central basin here, however I don't get down that way too often with spare picture taking time. Carlot: seen a u tube vid. a few months ago, one of the good ole boys had passed and the procession was about a mile long of assorted hay haulers (nice rides) as for how we handle the bales well we don't!...........I let the tractor do it ! they avg. 1200 pounds each. I have some slip on bale spears the attach to the loader bucket on my 580k backhoe. VaPatentman: here's a before during and after photo of the 76 cf600 its a local truck that I reworked and its going back in service!

    Fitzgerald Gliders- this is a small part of the units they have sitting there. Load of lumber I picked up in Mt. Pleasant, N.C. I saw this blurry Superliner when I unloaded that lumber in Troy, Va. A big Mack truck at Zion Crossroads. Some units at Zion Crossroads. Blowed the leaves away today- i'm glad that's done with!

    One way to prime a reluctant diesel is to run it on WD-40 until it picks up a prime. Spray oil-based (deep blue can, not light green water-based) WD-40 into the intake. It will run without doing harm like ether will. I'm not familiar with Mack diesels, but I don't think you need to crack an injector to get the prime pump to work. Generally you crack an injector line to allow the air to escape while you crank the engine. The primer should fill the filters and allow the engine to "self-prime" by picking up fuel from the filters and forcing the air through the injectors until fuel is delivered. If all of the injector lines are empty it can take a while.

    That old freezer belonged to my Grand Mother. I got it when she passed away, had it outside in the shed at the old house and on the back porch since i've been here. I have no idea how long she had it, but I've had it about 20 years I guess. It started making a funny- not "ha-ha" funny, but funny weird- noise, so I figured i'd best go get another one. It was just a small one- the replacement I got was a 7.1 cubic feet Frigidaire, the smallest they had, but it's still a good bit bigger than the old GE. It was about full, but when I put all the stuff out of the old one in the new one it still looked empty, so I took the stuff back out and put the frozen gallon jugs of water in the bottom, then put the food back in. They say you should keep a freezer full for best results- I'm not sure who "they" are- but I keep frozen water jugs in mine all the time, when I need the space I just take some out. Anyway, enough about the freezer,eh? I saw a white car at the gas station, near Norcross, Ga. Then I think I might have seen Dolly Parton at a red light. Looks like something's on fire over there-i'll call 1958FWD to see what it is.

    I'm mostly in town running a Sprinter van doing bus light repairs, but when one quits at a stop or blows coolant by law and our corporate safety plan I have to park a defined distance behind it, 6 cones have to placed at a regulation distance, I can only exit the van through the side door onto the sidewalk and I have enough orange flashing lights on the roof and rear door to be seen by the space station..!!! but....... the dumb motorists simply pull in behind me and wait... and wait... thinking I'm at a traffic light or something... so, I get out with my equally 'loud' yellow vest on and stand behind the van and point to the flashing lights.!!! and they still don't get it..!!! I was told 45 years ago when I passed my car driving test that this is only the first step to becoming a "driver".... nowadays, the "test" is the end of the process for most on the road. BC Mack

    I have been looking for a little while, but haven't pulled the trigger. Last month I was talking to a lady at a wedding, she said she had an old Mack out back. Her husband died, the trucks been sitting two years and the grandchildren didn't want it. So I said, I will take a look. Needless to say, she tossed a number out and I thought what the heck since its local. Its been driven, but I believe it was loved. So here's too my first tractor trailer! I picked this trailer up two days later, the stars must have aligned. I bought them quick, so hopefully I didn't make a big mistake. 1988 Mack R 6885st, (350 with a 9) and wetkit, pulling a 1975 SmithCo 40 ton trailer. I plan to pull my antique fire engines and farm tractors with it.

    I finally got rid of the original axles and reyco suspension everything is stripped off the frame from the fuel tanks back I primed everything with POR-15 and gave it a coat of black enamel paint. The aluminum frame had some severe electrolysis under the spring hangers, equalizers and fifth wheel frame which were ground down and sandblasted the had filler put in to level things out. I can still see where the spring hangers were but no where near as bad as it was I have to roll the camelback suspension under it after it dries then shim it and bolt it tight.

    the pump seal may just be dry. after a few pumps, they might seal. cracking the injector lets air out instead of just compressing it. once you get some fluid showing, keep pumping as you tighten the line. once you get the air purged, you should be able to get it to fire. may stumble a bit until all air is out of all the lines

    Yup, that's US 60! Do you still haul to Modine? It never looks like there's much going on there. One of my friends works at Munters, I see their finished units heading out on expedite flatbeds now and then. Until we found a place to buy, we were renting in the building at the first light after you turn onto US 501 from US 60, the one with the sign about "6003 happy residents and 3 old grouches" on the side.

    There is no need to raise fuel taxes to pay for infrastructure...just stop spending the money ALREADY COLLECTED for that purpose on other, unrelated budget items. "But the CHILDREN will suffer!" Bullshit. Before raiding funds collected for a specific purpose, there are plenty of "pet" projects that can be cut or reduced...bureaucracies that can shrink or be eliminated altogether...plenty of places to find the revenue OTHER than schools, police, and fire services. Schools, police, and fire services are most visible, and the easiest to use to tug at heart strings...which is WHY the left uses them in their efforts to unnecessarily raise taxes by placing them at the top of the list to receive their budget cuts FIRST. For the Democrats who always claim to stand up "for the CHILDREN", they sure are quick to make them suffer. If they REALLY cared about "the CHILDREN", the schools and first responders budgets wouldn't get cut until everything else in government had been slashed to bare bones. So I don't want to hear this "we need to raise taxes" bullshit. The ONLY thing government has ever been good at is WASTING money. Giving them more doesn't help the economy in any way. In fact, history has proven time and time again that when you CUT the government's take on every dollar that is earned, people take home more (and therefore have more to spend), which spurs the economy and stimulates growth, which increases the size of the labor force (number of tax payers) and the government collects MORE revenue as a result. That smaller piece of a larger pie always works out better than demanding a larger piece of a smaller pie.

    Just four years ago, Donald Trump presented a drastically different position on illegal immigrants in the United States. Since he announced his candidacy last June, Trump has promised to build a wall on the US border with Mexico and deport all or many of the estimated 11 million undocumented [illegal] immigrants living in the country. [And rightly so.] However, in a June 2012 CNBC interview, Trump said he didn't believe in deporting undocumented immigrants who "had done a great job." "You know my views on it and I'm not necessarily, I think I'm probably down the middle on that also,” said Trump. “Because I also understand how, as an example, you have people in this country for 20 years, they've done a great job, they've done wonderfully, they've gone to school [for free], they've gotten good marks, they're productive — now we're supposed to send them out of the country, I don't believe in that. I don't believe in a lot things that are being said." .

    The unions back Clinton, she let's all the jobs go to Mexico, that means the unions are putting themselves out of biz ??? that is not very smart, I think they are backing Clinton in public but are telling the membership to vote for Trump in the backroom, this way they win however it turns out Term limits are great. If Trump wins things will have to improve. just think if all the smucks who threaten to move to CN. do so then the US will already be better off. Clinton and Obama could go to prison (like that idea) power plants might start up, that means jobs that pay well, oil field rebounds because industry starts using more oil because they start selling more because more go to work with good jobs. geez and the democrats cannot figure out how this works.

    Nice trucks, for sure- but it just doesn't seem right that you can buy a house and a few acres of land cheaper than you can buy a pickup truck, and in a lot of places you can do just that.

    So our commie friend brings up Nixon who was a good president just got up in covering some crap that really was insignificant compared to what has gone on today, Clintons, Weiner, Frank god I can't list them all I'd be here all day. At the end of the day all the Democrats have to offer up is Hillary, that's the best they can dig up, talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel, So Trump as a citizen fondled a little meow, Oh my god let's bomb some turd country over it, like Clinton did every time some one brought up his cigar tricks ?? Bombing someone makes better headlines. Democrats run our major cities, most are broke, Democrats run our schools, we turn out brain deads. Democrats promise the Blacks they will help ?? 40 years later they are still waiting, in fact slavery in this country is doing well it's just got a different look, all thanks to the Democrat. Yeah Trump has some issues but Democrats have many more and worse.

    "the Skagit County sheriff’s report noted that Grayzel and her cinematographer were “just outside the enclosure … taking photographs and video”. The report said they confiscated the film-makers’ phone and “assorted camera equipment”, actions that have raised further concerns about press intimidation and free speech violations." What "I" am reading here is, two journalist who were not trespassing, but rather were standing "outside" the enclosure, were arrested and their equipment confiscated. Based on that, I'm seeing Freedom of the Press thrown to the curb. On any given day, you only see a fraction of the actual news. Do you think for one moment that only Russia, China and other global countries try to keep certain news from reaching the masses? News that would complicate their plans. This is an example of how that takes place right here.

    When Suffolk County and the Township of Riverhead were trying to make me remove 100 trucks from our farm (even thought they were all insured registered and inspected) I had a "reporter" walk on our land and start taking photos, soil samples and writing down plate numbers. My wife went out to tell him to leave. Said he was a journalist and had ever legal right to be there as long as he did no damage. Dogs ended that. Turns out he ran a blog on the East End Environmental News. I don't see a blogger as a journalist or reporter KS as for what the Europeans and later the Feds did to the Indians, the railroad did the the Chinese, the Plantation owners did to the slaves, the Irish, Poles, Russians and more . . .Different times, different attitudes. My ancestors were Privateers for the Queen in the 15-1600's, should I feel remorse for what they did to the French and Spanish? We did probably 75 or 100 Zippo Raids when I was in Vietnam, should I feel guilty? We were always taught that you can not change the past. Me I'm tired of always hearing about what Whites did to other groups 1, 2, or more centuries ago. Maybe the present and future would work out better if the people laying on and the recipients of guilt trips stop? Paul

    On that style tractor protection valve the line on the right is the supply. It has air if the truck has air. The line in the center of the valve is the line that controls the service breaks. It only has air when breaks are applied. The first valve and switch is where the foot valve and trailer hand valve are combined which supplies trailer brakes through the center line going into the tractor protection valve. That one is the brake light switch it only has air when either the pedal or hand valve are applied.

    Bill Maher lost mein the first 3 minutes when he called me a deplorable knuckle dragger. Typical elitist attitude, the smartest guy in the room, completely out of touch with average Americans. But the alternative reality he speaks of is his own privileged existence. He says Trump supporters are not as bad off as we think, with average incomes of $72,000. Excuse me, but I bust my ass to make more than that, and it's still paycheck to paycheck, not much more. 25 years ago, I made about 2/3 of my current income and was much better off. $15 minimum wage won't even pay the rent nowadays. Maher says Hillary will be steady on the current course set by Obama. I'm sorry but 8 more years will destroy America's exceptionalism. We need to CHANGE course and stop trying to be like the rest of the world. There is a reason why immigrants want to be here. We have built the greatest nation on earth in less than 300 years and the rest of the world should try to be like us, not the other way around. Capitalism and free markets work, every time.

    B model tanks are not that hard to cut apart. I have done several. fill with water, grind the welds down smooth on the end caps, use a new wheel with a square edge around the front diamond plate. mark a line around the middle of the weld and tank with a sharpie and cut it with a sawsall. then you can sandblast the inside. I usually get some sealer from Napa or Eastwood. the red gas tank sealer from Napa is good stuff. brush the inside. leave it about an inch or two away from the end where your gonna weld. then weld or have someone weld the end caps back on. let it cool and pour some more sealer inside and roll it around to coat where you welded. AIR TEST it with about 5psi of pressure and soapy water to check for leaks. then your ready to paint. its worth it to have a clean tank inside. also gives you a chance to cut the tag off (where all the b models rust behind the tank tag) and cut the rot out and weld a patch.
