  1. I have follow this discussion from day one and to me it will make a script for a TV shown. It got me thinking what the great people of this country did during WW 2. The government ask the people to give up so many things to help war effort. Gasoline, meat, and clothing were tightly rationed. Most families were allocated 3 US gallons per week. Production of most durable goods, like new housing, vacuum cleaners, and kitchen appliances, was banned until the war ended. There was so much this people did to help with war effort you can write a novel. So we are at war against a virus call Covid 19 an

  3. Re-educating Maxidyne is causing you to build long exhaustive paragraphs to satisfy her one sentence retorts. It’s a fruitless, disproportionate, wasted effort and she may be sitting in her Birkenstock’s giggling her head off at your sweaty dance. Your best bet would be an administrator request her third (or fourth?) removal from the site for relentless conversational antagonism. Once they have enough complaints they boot her off and she comes back quiet for a short spell and then goes right back to incessant annoyance in about roughly 12 months time.

  5. Except the actual number of Covid deaths is nowhere near 1%, it's more like .26% and the vast majority of those who have died were NOT from the workforce! NO ONE is trying to stop those of you who are scared from staying home. Many of us have things to do that are just as important to us as your activities are to you. Our freedom to each pursue those things is what America is all about. If you choose to hide at home or behind a useless mask, that is YOUR choice, but you have no authority to stop me from pursuing mine. Living by your "rules" is not living at all!

  6. During my short enlistment, I crossed paths with two of those "lots of stars" guys, one near the beginning and one near the end. The first was an old guy with five of them. The other was much younger and had four. Both treated me nicely. One even asked for and valued my opinion on something we were both involved in. I also encountered several that wore bars or eagles that were complete A-holes. Same can be said for several Fire Chief's I have met! Authority goes straight to the heads of some folks! As for the use of PPE, I have worked in occupations that the job actually required

  11. Being gas it would have been a A40S or A50S or A54S. A54 were a larger A model with a wider grille. And the black A tandem looks to be the standard A grille. Its most likely a A40S but possibly a A50S if gas was original engine the lanova diesels were troublesome in their day and often replaced by gas engines. The picture is too low of resolution to make out the badge number under the mack on the hood sheetmetal.

  17. When I drove a wrecker, I never wore a vest. The few times I did, I noticed traffic zipped by in closer proximity than when I didn't have it on...almost as though since they could see me & thought they'd miss me, they weren't concerned about giving me space, but when they COULDN'T see me as easily, they were more cautious as they drove by. I also noticed carrying my chains on the road side with the hook held out towards traffic a little caused them to leave me the MOST space. So, no vest & carry a big hook on a chain...they see that juuuuust fine (and give space). Hardhats are a ridicu

  18. Bingo, exactly. And if everyone wore the cheaper and available surgical masks (N95 mask being in short supply) when out in public, we would see a massive drop in transmission. Guys, I lived through a serious epidemic and speak from experience. I humbly speak out of a desire for the BMT family and their families to stay healthy while we await a vaccine.

  20. They say tying a bandana around your face is as good as wearing one of these masks. I've probably got a dozen or more bandanas, so I'm not paying a crapload of money on masks that won't do any more. Now I occasionally work in a dusty environment, and when I do, I tie one on. When I do, I look like the year is 1865 and I just rode in off the dusty trail to rob the bank, stage, or commit some other heinous act...and that's not a look I care to have walking around town. I have not and will not wear a mask in public. Any establishment that wants my business won't say a damn thing to me about

  27. S means tandem drive axles T means tractor trailer brake package The ST does not mean it was ever a tractor. Since Mack would build what ever the client requested so Maxidyne is just guessing what the specs are based on a generic model number. To get the asbuilt specs you need to contact the Mack museum. Keep in mind that this is at least a 30 year old truck that has probably been rebuilt and modified over its life so anything is possible now. Your best bet is to look over the truck and figure out what axles, suspension and frame are currently there.

  28. Drain your coolant and pull the lower radiator hose away from the oil cooler manifold entry port. Check for a cylindrical screen filter that’s intended to keep chunks of scale and debris from entering the tiny passages of the oil cooler and wrecking it. Clean the screen as needed, it may be plugged. If not plugged report back.

  33. In late June 1950, Major Stuart Peach and Squadron Leader Ronald Rankin were front page news. Sent to the Republic of Korea to report on growing tensions between North Korea and South Korea, they were thought to have been captured after Seoul fell to the invading North Korean army. While the men were missing, a report they had written was submitted to the United Nations Security Council. Find out how these two Australians played a vital role in saving South Korea at the outbreak of the Korean War: https://www.awm.gov.au/articles/blogs/along-parallel-lines Image: Major Stuart Peach (l

  34. It was an icy winter’s eve in Korea on 24 January 1953 when 31 men from the 3rd Battalion, the Royal Australian Regiment (3RAR) gathered on Hill 355 for a snatch patrol. Led by Lieutenant Francis Smith, a 23-year-old Duntroon graduate, their objective was to capture a Chinese soldier in order to gather military intelligence. Moving carefully down the frozen slopes of Hill 355, the men of 3RAR trudged slowly towards their target: a communications trench 1,500 yards behind Chinese lines. Despite the cold, Private Lionel Terry – known as “Bomber” – was warm and clean. Terry had taken a bird

  35. Seoul, South Korea. c March 1951. The capital, Seoul, seat of the Republic of Korea (ROK) Government. This picture was taken when restoration work had first commenced on the much bombed and shelled building, main landmark of Seoul, once known as the "Jewel of the East". In the course of changing hands four times during the Korean fighting the city was almost reduced to rubble, but is now showing signs of returning to its former beauty. At left, three soldiers from the 3rd Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment (3RAR), sitting in a jeep, inspect the work being done on the building

  36. “Rosemary” 77 Squadron’s lucky lady: In April 1951, No. 77 Squadron, RAAF was withdrawn from Korea to re-equip with the Gloster Meteor Mk 8 fighter in Japan. One of the squadron’s original Meteors would come to be known as “Rosemary” – Rosemary served with 77 Squadron in Korea from July 1951 until August 1953, flying 485 operational missions, including reconnaissance, ground attack and air to air combat. On 3 November 1951, Sergeant Max Colebrook DFM USAM damaged a MiG during a dogfight flying Rosemary. He was later awarded the Distinguished Flying Medal. Colebrook was later shot d

  39. Plans for Operation Roundup began on the island of Yong Pyong Do. On 15 May 1952, Warwick Seymour Bracegirdle, commander of the Bataan, went ashore on the island to meet the Wolfpack leaders and inspect installations. The guerrillas sought Bracegirdle’s support for a plan to attack the mainland and push the North Koreans back from a communist-held mainland peninsula, Ponggu-yon. Local intelligence had revealed that Ponggu-yon was held by at least two battalions of North Korean and Chinese troops, supported by artillery. If the plan succeeded, it would provide greater security for the islands a

If you look at the worlds most successful economies, with the exception of China, most are social democracies where capitalism is the default but the government insures universal health care and sometimes major utility services, etc..

  44. You need to turn 8LL input shaft 19.5 turns to see 1 turn on output shaft while T310MLR input shaft will need to be turned 27.31 turns to see 1 turn on output shaft. If you did put it in Lo-Lo gear obviously T310MLR would feel much harder to turn that doesn't mean rotational moment of inertia is higher than Eaton's. If you are putting a aux. box behind your trans that's another $5k-10k additional cost. Repair cost of range section of T300 should be around $4k. Isn't it cheaper in long run even if you had to repair it twice. T300 synchronizer has been beefed up but got a bad reputation by
