    I will be greedy and take a long hood R and a Superliner!

    Seeing as my F350 dump is disappearing before my eyes and since I don't want to replace all the sheetmetal on a truck with 190k on it, time for Craigslist. Found a 2000 k3500 6.5 diesel with 49k original on it for $2600, just needs a transmission (no reverse) and a bulldog hood ornament. A guy who lives down the street from my shop stopped by and said he thinks he has a good tranny for it so that might work out pretty good. Very clean almost rust free 20 year old truck, don't find that in New England often. Brought it home this morning, managed to put the front wheel thru the trailer deck while loading. I think I'll paint it to match my old 94 3500 HD that I sold because plowing driveways in 2 wheel drive sucks.

    The booster is a separate vacuum assisted brake booster. It attatches to a mount on the frame and then on the bottom of the brake pedal.

    I rebuilt the booster and properly adjusted it. That thing works awesome now. Just by closing the vacuum rod by hand is enough to apply the brakes fully.

    We stopped at Horseless Carriage in Jersey on the way to Macungie quite few years ago. I was wandering around and saw a familiar shape at the back of one of the warehouses. The Monkee mobile was being stored there for a while for a customer, took a photo wish I could find it.

    I like the long hood R's better then the superliners. Just never seen many of them around here.

    Something like 85% of journalists are registered Democrats. That about sums it up! It's not news it's propeganda. The same that allowed Hitler and every other fascist rise to power.

    That's what happens when you have a media in the tank for the democrat party they are very good at lying by omission of key facts CNN is a expert at it.

    In my short experience I've learned they accuse others of their own crimes. Case and point, Hilary managing to get waste of time investigation into Trump when she's the one who pandered to Russia. https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/429292-the-case-for-russia-collusion-against-the-democrats Trump may not be a morally perfect guy, but he's no socialist pig. And for those who are angry that he hasn't gotten a wall built yet, stop sending he swamp dwellers to work with in Congress. He's not a king for 4 years, he can only do what the Constitution allows him to do. Congress and the Courts have to do their part.

    That's some major snow. We've got a fair share of it lately but we've been bombarded with bitter cold. Yesterday was first time in 24 days we have had a high above 0. 2 weeks ago we set records for coldest day at -52. You know it's been cold when it's -6 and you see people in sweatshirts and they say it feels pretty nice out. Stay warm my friend.

    I’m sure your B sees more road miles and makes more kids smile! That’s a winner in my book.

    Sad part is many people will overlook their new products because of the Maxxforce debacle.

    Call it a weakness, I always zoom in on how the wiring, air hoses, AC hoses and coolant hoses are all plumbed, kind of a lead in to the truck's overall assembly quality, and this truck looks quite good. The Navistar team has been hard at work, and this is evidence.
