    The piece of crap that was in the White House last said you would never seen unemployment down where it is today, also said that those manufacturing jobs were gone for EVER, EVER he said, really what happened, we have a President that grabs a little Volvo, better than grabbing a Weiner, calls out Rocket Man, tries to find out who really screwed up the election (Clinton) brings back oil, has really lowered unemployment, is really trying to fix the southern border problem (less warren/sanders voters) if the guy pooped out gold bricks and cured cancer the America hating left would still find something to impeach him, how about we impeach THEM, how about we declare the Democrat party a Terrorist group, they really hate America and really try to harm us, all the left talks about is about everyone else in the world and what they think, who cares what they(any other country ) thinks, how about we the working people of this country think, do you live by what others think or what is right for you ??? Impeach the Democrats and declare the them Terrorists.(not the NRA).

    Isn't it funny under Obama we could spend bunches of money to buy gas for our cars and trucks and it was all imported oil, but 3 years under Trump we produce so much of our own oil that we are now having layoffs in the oil field for having to much oil??? Just one more example of the treason Obama committed against the American people that gets covered up, Trump wants to investigate corruption in Ukraine and the Obama team (Liberal Democrats) want him gone??? And if you think that Obama did not sell out American coal for the benefit of third world nations your a moron, he screwed us to help his baboon farmer nations have cheap energy while we got stuffed with gas, and NO it was NOT about clean air it was about helping other nations at the expense of the American tax payer. Warren/Sander will bankrupt this nation and that is the plan, to make us no better than any other nation. Our new national slogan will be, America just another shit hole.

    After about 3 plus years pulled the truck out of the shop for some insurance pictures . Truck was built March 1961 third of an order of twenty four for Genesee Valley Transportation Inc. Buffalo, NY. Painted to U.S. Post Office Specifications . Used by Genesee Valley Trans to haul mail. I could have finished the truck about a year sooner if I did not spend some much time looking for the last tool I was using .

    We have both tracks around here. Magnolia and Mount Vernon are the only 1/8 miles tracks, all the rest can run 1/4 mile. Since most of the local IHRA bracket points stuff is 1/8 mile, DW42 runs most of their programs 1/8 mile. I can remember about 13 odd yrs ago the locals all bitched about only running 1/8. Then like the next year, suddenly they all were raving about it. Fuel cost, maintenance, etc all were cheaper so they suddenly think 1/8 mile is where its at. I don't care, I just want to race.

    Heavy Duty Trucking (HDT) / October 9, 2019 UPS will purchase more than 6,000 natural gas-powered trucks beginning in 2020 and running through 2022. This three-year commitment represents a $450 million investment in expanding the company’s alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicle fleet as well as supporting infrastructure. Roughly 25% of vehicles purchased by UPS in 2020 will run on alternative fuels, said Juan Perez, chief information and engineering officer, UPS. The new vehicles will be equipped with compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel systems provided under an exclusive agreement with Agility Fuel Solutions, a provider of clean fuel solutions for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles. As of October 2019, UPS has agreed to purchase 230 million-gallon equivalents of RNG over the next seven years, making the company the largest consumer of RNG in the transportation industry. Vehicles equipped with CNG fuel systems can interchangeably use RNG and conventional natural gas. Since 2016, Agility Fuel Solutions has provided natural gas fuel storage and delivery systems to more than 1,700 UPS trucks. Over the past decade, UPS has invested more than $1 billion in alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles and fueling stations to help meet its target of reducing absolute greenhouse gas emissions by 12% across its global ground operations by 2025. UPS has continued its relationship with TruStar Energy to design, manufacture and install five new CNG fueling stations in Lathrop, Visalia and Moreno Valley, Calif., Houston, Texas, and Cleveland, Ohio. UPS will deploy the new CNG vehicles on routes to utilize the new CNG stations as well as adding to existing natural gas fleets in other UPS locations. By the end of 2019, UPS will be operating 61 natural gas fueling stations strategically located across the U.S., and outside the U.S. in Vancouver, Canada, and Tamworth, United Kingdom.

    The 285 with the tip turbine/after cooler will fit under the hood. The air plumbing may need work depending on what you have. Do you have air from the air cleaner running through the cab or is it direct from the air cleaner through the side of the hood? No need in having the air restricted. Weight is at least 2000 lbs depending on how dressed it is.

    I like taking pictures of old workhorses, they have character and a story to tell. If you want pictures of shiny new trucks then this is not the thread for you.

    Lots of new stuff at our place lately, in addition to the 2 new puppies this puppy showed up at my door yesterday. Been waiting on it for about 8 months now and it is rebuilt, dyno tested and ready to go behind a stout twin turbo E9. This will be a long project but at least I got the big components ready and setting here when the time comes. This is going in a MH to go drag racing, as no sled pulling in this side of the country. I got the truck on bill of sale only, so it will never be on the road again. Just going to have some fun with it non the less. Think of calling it "The Flying Brick" or "Junkyard Dog" maybe something else, any ideas?

    There needs to be washers or a thick washer between the bracket and the housing on the bolt that goes into the bango housing or it will not stay tight! The difff casting has milled flat cut outs for flat washers to fit there all the way around the diff if you don't put the thick washer there or at least several flat washers there for the bracket to seat to the bracket will never stay tight!

    Keep your eyes on the truck for a minute - we're throwing back to 1980 for a bitchin' Autocar A64HD, with its super-groovy paint job. Also gracing the photo is Suzy, who was actually a manager at the Autocar plant before becoming a top dealer salesperson. #ThrowbackThursday #TBT Always Up - Autocar Trucks .

    It’s hard to say an EUP could never develop plunger leak. Look at how many years some cores could be moving in and out of chassis’s. The originals weren’t designed pre low sulfur(dry) fuel. The engineering is fascinating, you’d never think fuel film could seal so perfectly. On the flip side I’ve never seen one leaking from the stem and have been surrounded by them for 21 years. Currently, at work, we have 28 EUPs pounding fuel into cylinders daily. None of them have developed the leak your describing.

    I'm not seeing 6" longer hood or 4" rise on the cab, not saying it isn't I'm just not seeing it I guess. It should have longer fender extension between cab and fender I would think. I know I will have to add at-least 12" to mine to make up for the distance I moved the cab back. And I raised the radiator plus cab mounts 2" which will set bottom of cab about a 1/2" above frame rail. Look at the fender extensions on the one below, mine will extend past the inside radius of the bottom rear of fender if visualized on this truck. I see it but it is hard to make out.

    For the ATHS and Big Mack gents and ladies that visited Tony Champion's museum 2015, here is Seduce. It is not easy to pick the 2 subtle modifications, being the B75 hood was extended about 6 inches and the cab was raised about 4 inches, so there is a slight fall from the fire wall to the alloy radiator top. And below the doors the cab was also extended about 3 inches.

    Go to a yard near you, snap tons of photos of a set forward axle truck, and note every difference you see, make your list off that. Make sure you take a peak at the oil pan to make sure yours doesn't have the sump in the front whereas a set forward might have it in the back.

    Roger Desvergnes wanted to set up his new hauling business, RJD Excavation out of North Smithfield, Rhode Island. He remembered his grandfather used to run Autocar trucks. So naturally, Roger snagged this sweet 1986 Autocar DK64 and >Bingo!< he's at work, picking up the cabbage. 💸💸 Thanks to http://dailydieseldose.com/autocar-mondays-reliable-foundation/ for sharing.

    Ok, so we just got back from taking the truck back into the shop and it was hell getting the thing up on the trailer since it wouldn’t start this morning, it was running on just starting fluid, and the fuel pump was working fine... so it took the truck with the trailer holding it’s brakes up on a hill and another truck towing it from the side... it was an adventure to say the least! Broke a brand new chain but our trusty old rusty one held just fine. Enjoy some pictures of our adventure this morning!

    Being a Canadian, with a goofy prime minister, all the news channel are making a bad press on Trump. They make him the bad guy because he's not helping us with China and the Huawei story. They keep bitching him and now they want him to do our Goofy prime minister job and resolve the story. WTH, Justin Trudeau had one job to do and can't do it, he's weak and Trump even told him last year

    Rotate the engine by hand until you get the low spot of the eccentric on the cam aligned with the pump arm, you will be able to see and feel it when you spin it and hold the pump in position. It will than fit close enough to run the bolts in.

    Old style stud pilot parts are harder to come by and more expensive here. Stud pilot drums are $500 hub pilot are $150 for extra cost to change hubs it pays for itself in long run. Also my old rims are approx 30 years old I can upgrade those as well for safety reasons.
