  2. Who remembers iron on transfers that we would iron onto T shirts back in the 70's and 80's My brother sent me this today Thats his T shirt that his wife saved from the rag bag many many years ago and had just had it framed for him How good were those days, life was so much simpler back then Looks like a Australian coolpower and its pulling a van which back in those days in Australia was extremely rare as every trailer was a flat top with tarps and just the front hurdle Then as years passed the rear hurdle was added and finally gates under the tarps

  3. Censorship - This is still America. There is a war being waged in the country on free speech. If you don't like what someone has to say no one is forcing you to listen. At least we are not being forced yet.

  5. Here's another one . This pic is a few years old now. My old R worked the same job, same place for 20 years . It got retired last year because the new contract called for trucks no older than 5 years . Funny part , the old R never stopped in any storm in the 20 years. The same can't be said for the new trucks.

  6. I had a sweater with a beautiful Cruiseliner put on it when I was a kid. From one of those many tee-shirt shops that used to be around back in the day where they had hundreds of pics to choose from. But I wore that one out.

  10. I was getting gravel this past summer and grabbed this pic. I forgot I had it. The guy that was driving the granite said he would far sooner drive mine. He said his engine light is on more than its off. LOL

I grew up in a town of maybe 100 a people (grew up 3 mile out of town on a farm) and once or twice a year we would go to Colac our next biggest town during school holidays and it was around 10,000 people I remember when my brother and I got a T shirt, the one shown was his and I got a SAR Kenworth on mine The shop was the sporting goods shop and as you described had 100's of iron on transfers I remember I had no idea what was going and Mum getting frustrated as I dicked around, didn't know about transfers at the time It was pretty special to me, yeah I know it's lame b

  14. The code is saying that the current is low and or open circuit. The speed sensor circuit has 2 dedicated wire that are twisted together. Since its a series circuit, any added resistance to the circuit would decrease the amount of current flowing through the circuit. With the key off, disconnect the J2 plug at the VECU. Disconnect the speed sensor and jump the two terminals at the sensor with a wire. Measure the resistance at the J2 plug at pins 11 and 12. The resistance should be very low with continuity. With one lead on pin 11, check to see if any other pins with the other lead is shorting w

  20. You will see that sort of reinforcement on most trucks with frames that dip down under the cabs, non straight rail. The International/Chevy medium duty doesn't need them, those trucks have a regular straight rail class 6 chassis. The cabs on those trucks do sit higher, however.

  22. This is the reason why I believe there is no quality drivers any more Alex. Just as you said.....our older generations you rode around as a kid with real professionals and you learned until you were old enough to go get a license. We truly WANTED to be drivers and we strived to be the best we could. This doesn't seem to be the norm any more.

  24. I completely agree. There was a time if you were interested in being a truck driver you got to know someone who would train you or you started by sweeping the floor in a shop and worked your way up. Remember when drivers actually had a clue as to the internal workings of a truck as opposed to picking up your cell phone when there's a issue. I was having this discussion the other day and a driver was telling me how much it cost him to get a license. I told him I apprenticed for 18 years before I got mine

  25. They started this mandatory driver training in Canada where you can only get a commercial license by paying huge money to go to a truck driving school. Complete BS. I sent letters and had discussions with our MTO on this matter when it was open for comments. I can guarantee you I am more qualified to train my kids if I wanted to, then many many of the teachers at these truck driving schools. They know damn well who these people and schools are that hand out licenses. Yet instead of going after them, they again punish the professionals of the industry. And besides that.....isn't

  27. FBGNO-Thanks for the interest-the hoods are in the paint shop-but the body guy had a family issue with his new born grandson which was born way premature. Which far out weighs anything else, my work can wait. Looks like around Jan 1st before I get them back. The thread is a couple pages back called {Near the End} Thanks Freightrain!

  28. My recent purchase, a 1995 Mack CH 613 with an Eaton super 10 and a 375hp E7 VMAC2. We removed the sleeper and both the rear drives, remounted the rear rear to the forward rear mounting and cut the frame to make a single axle extended WB day cab . I plan to use it to pull a 5th wheel camper and I am very pleased with how its turning out . Will post original picture's and more current pictures soon .

  29. My 17 granite had an similar issue with the Allison. It was a bad wiring harness from the dash to the trans. It was pinched and took a while to rub through and short out.
