  4. Geez a Military whiz but I don't remember seeing you in Iraq, Oh that's right you were home promoting we blew up our own buildings. ??? and for those Hummers they suck we did better with Mitsubishi Pajeros and when all that high dollar go anyplace trucks quit they were replaced with Mack RD 888s and they did not quit and some even came home to be sold and put back to work. Funny how the union backs Biden and he will send all their jobs to China, now that's a clueless bunch.

  9. So Money pit here's a thought and some experiences for ya! One test that can be performed is to put 12 volts to the solenoid if the timing advances then the econovance is working and you may still have an electrical issue ! there is a spring inside the unit that can break and there are teflon piston rings that can wear and deteriorate !So in that sense the mech is correct ! IMPORTANT If the econovance is working correctly the engine should start and stumble and smoke blu white smoke till the oil pressure comes up once the oil pressure is up, the engine should clean up and run smooth! a

  10. They are being "rewarded" for allowing ([possibly causing) a ship to sustain what is probably irreparable damage while it was in their care to the tune of 10M on top of what they have probably already been paid.... just, wow.

  11. Matt I have a Mack Operation and Maintenance Manual Form TS 442. Only 208 pgs but attached is a picture of a worm and roller type box which is what you have I believe as well as a picture of the box I have which is a cam and Lever type. I'm assuming that the worm in both boxes is separate from the shaft??? And if so what holds the shaft to the worm???

  17. In the asked task I'd put a bottle jack onto the top of the frame rail and make a lee of chain or tight stripe over the bottom of the spring and the jack top. Than lift the jack so it will pull the chain forsing the spring bottom to go up. My chain winches were 1 ton so applying 2 of them to both the springs didn't put more than 1 ton of force to each spring. And I remember well I didn't seat the insulators by the clamp bolts. The rubbers were completely in their places so I just put the clamps and drove the bolts in.

  18. When I changed the ones on mine, the truck was together. Still, it was a pain because the spring was curled up (with no weight on it), and did not line up. I put a small bottle jack between the frame and the tail end of the spring (near the rear mount). As I let the jack supporting the frame down, I adjusted the small jack to bend/straighten the spring as needed. Once it was in the seat, all was good. Without the weight of the truck on it, Something like Vlad's rig, above, might work. Pull the axle to the frame to simulate load, and still might need the other little jack like

  19. I can remember going to lawn equipment shows at the local mall and gathering up all the literature available for the models I liked back in the late 70's. It all got pitched years ago, but it would be neat to see it now. Being a "Ford" guy, I should be collecting Ford tractors instead of Cub Cadets? I had a '66 Cub 100 growing up. Have a 127 and 149 now. We had a "Monkey Wards" at the one mall in town. It's all gone, just like Sears has now.

  21. Nice-he mentioned houses. I had an uncle that bought a Sears house. Small ranch, one car garage and a hip roof. House was delivered in a box car and I remember going to rail yard with my dad in one of his companies trucks-like a 10 or 12' rack body to pick it up. Don't remember how many trips it took.

  23. I don't know what happens there but here in Eastern Pennsylvania as well as numerous large cities, small towns and other sizes of municipalities all across this great continent we get out of the rig with our SCBA on and tools or hoseline in hand, ready to go to work in a rapid, orderly military manner. Aggression seen as being reckless in some eyes is a coordinated offensive attack in experienced and trained eyes. We came, we saw, we kicked ass.

  26. When you've got a 2 year old, there's a lot of stupid. They seem to like it. I refuse to have baby shark or anything else annoying like that on when I'm in the house. Luckily, he seems to gravitate towards anything with monster trucks or trains, so it's not too bad.

  33. My grandfather did rigging and hauling, had an Allied Van Lines franchise, and was the Brockway dealer here in Columbus Ohio. Here's a photo of one of his trucks taken in 1964...you can see the belt-drive tag axle. Next to it is an N400, brand new and ready for delivery.

  34. Well the same narrative has been playing out since this started. The lockdown rules only apply to the peasants. Remember the rich lady in Connecticut I believe that had the party with people from all over the world? Or all the wealthy turds from NYC running to the hamptons? Or all of the Californians flooding Montana? Land prices have absolutely sky rocketed here due to wealthy out of staters paying ridiculous prices sight unseen.
