  1. At the end of the day, even though sticking it to the town sounds like the most satisfying thing to do, bankruptcy will only do more harm than good to the honest productive members of the town that aren't on Mrs. Shizdontstink side. They still need sewer, water, infrastructure and other public works projects not to mention law enforcement, fire and EMS protection (much of which I am sure is done by volunteers but nonetheless requires money). I like Paul's idea of giving them one final chance to right their wrong. This way Paul gets what he wants and legally deserves as a land owner, veteran

  2. last night on the way in i saw a triaxle from nu yawk taking up the whole 12 foot lane. driver side front tire on one line, passenger rear on the other line 12 foot away. and he was loaded doing 65 mph, weaving in and out of lanes. i had to call the locals to get him off the road. he claimed there was nothing wrong with the truck, even after seeing video from police cars and my dash cam.. cops did not feel the same way, and had it impunded.

  3. AOC is well hmm how do I put this. A great example of why campaign finance reform is necessary, she's bought and paid for by a big group the twit can't produce a thought she's as stupid as she is pretty if it weren't for politics she would be doing porn!

  4. The suspension in question rode better than the camelback set-up but wasn't nearly as strong. If you broke a leaf on camelback you could still safely drive to get it repaired but not the underslung ones. My father had an underslung break a leaf while loaded with a bulk tanker on I-80 many years ago and sure enough she rolled over. He survived, so did the bulk tanker except for a flattened side wall but the R was totaled.

  8. Came across this the other day Some might find it interesting, if you do watch it read the comments and it will give you some idea on just how badly we treated our troops from Vietnam Our veterans have given us the freedoms we enjoy today, people poo poo Vietnam and Korean wars, what people fail to realize is that we may very well be communist countries today as these unpopular wars really put the brakes on communism Have a look if you like I still have trouble coming to terms with the way we treat our veterans and their families, it still

  9. Spot on. This rear suspension was called ST34. I think it was 34,000 only. Good possibility that the truck in question was a tractor at some point.

  10. A lot of gas company's had them either over or under the shaft system. I talk to a few people that had them and it wasn't a good out come when the leafs break at the center bolt they turn in to a catilpolt flipping or crashing the unit Ive change a lot and wouldn't put them on gas trailers and keep them on TB&A box's .

  13. So after running my trailer through a few dump cycles and watching it from the side i was able to figure it out. The front left draft arm pin that lets the king pin plate on the trailer pivot during dumping had frozen up. It was actually prying up on the fifth wheel, as it would not sit flat on it. Usually after unhooking the tractor the plate on the trailer would pivot just by touching it. I tried to pivot it with my front end loader but to no avail. A big torch loosened it but not enough so its being replaced. Thanks for everyone's input.

  15. Well I can tell you if a repair shop is properly insured their insurance company prohibits repair of fifth wheels. My insurance company prohibited me from anything related to the fifth wheel because they said it could come uncoupled and a trailer would go careening all over and kill everyone in it's path, I then asked that underwriter if i could replace king pins on a trailer and his reply was yes why not. The underwriters don't have a complete understanding of what it is that they are dealing with.
