  1. Guys, Heard from Kevin. As suspected he has been involved in a couple of projects that have him out straight. Got the feeling he was in one of those situations where it is feast or famine. Hopefully we will get some of his observations on the bigger global picture soon. And with the Traton/Navistar news that may involve the US more than some of us would like-or maybe I should say-more than I would like. Hate to see another IUS Icon lose its identity.

  2. Well friend of mine bought a '96 RD 690P from a local town fleet. Unlike a lot of municipals, these guys washed their equipment after each snow. Truck is a EM7, 275HP, Mack 7 speed , 14,200 Front, 23,000 rears . 11:00R-24.5. Body is new Hardox. He did all the work himself except for mounting new body. I think this was a popular spec that a few area towns bought back during that timeframe. Better than anything new you could buy today IMO.

  6. I checked this thread to figure out who Biden is since local media tell he wins pre-election popularity. The actual reading made me damn laugh and I even stopped myself on putting likes on some of the posts just feeling that all is not my business. At least I don't have dogs in the fight. Wish you to have that man as a president who more cares about people who produce than who consume.

  7. Nice looking Superdog, good luck bringing it back to live. The fasteners in the floor panels were used of two kinds. Those you bought attaches over the floor opening to fit the removable section of the floor (your pedal bases attached onto). The bases themself could be fitted to the same clips (and maybe they are if I'm wrong) but what my memory tells there's different style of nut inserts. Also a square nut but "wrapped" by steel with two shoulders you put into the square hole in the floor panel. I think they're called nutserts or insert nuts but not sure (sorry, English is not my native

  8. We did that kind of shaking. Hanged a tank on a pair of cargo straps, poured 10 liter of diesel in it and addad half a bin of gravel. Than shooked back-forth by hands. I had two young guys hired at the time and they did gym with the tank for 3-5 minutes a time changing each other. After 3 or 4 attemts they went to do something different and came back in an hour or so. Took them a couple of days for one tank (we made two) to get off rough rust but way not as after sandblasting. Of what I later read on here some folks attached a tank to portable cement mixer or a rear wheel of agricultural

  11. Dunno what your plans are for cleaning the inside of the fuel Some people have used the cement mixer method with good success I normally just cut the end off and weld it back on If you are gunna cut the end off and are worried about it going bang, just dangle a air line in with it running for a few minutes before you start and leave it running the whole time your working on it This purges any explosive fumes out and makes it safe What ever you do dont fill it with water or worse still water and soap as this gives fumes a spot to be trapped Paul

  12. Stopped into Utica Mack today and they set me up with an aftermarket accelerator assembly and what they said are the right fasteners for both pedals to the floor. These are a cage nut/ clip style deal, not sure if they will work looking at them but will find out when I get back to the truck. The pedal will work and it was cheap but I’m still going to keep my eyes out for an original.

  14. Used to be able to find those clip nuts in a body shop supply...... I’m assuming pedals and pedi still s are still available dealer if not lotsa wrecking yards full of them good luck and if I were you I would pull out injectors and shoot lotsa mystery oil in cylinders also pull off oil line from turbo and oil bearings and make sure it spins free.... good luck... bob

  15. I never did understand why labor disputes rose to the level of killing or maiming people. That's someone who's got their priorities completely out of whack.
