    A fitting end. Not a Volvo truck, but a Volvo anyway. http://prairiefarmreport.com/manure-spreader-vs-car/

    Here’s what I threw together with some scrap laying around. Solid and portable, not really a working stand but good for now.

    FYI, here's how we do it in neighbouring Canada. This 5-axle super-B set is good for 138-140,000lbs gross (depending what province you're in). I've never driven one, but I've spoken with guys who say that the track quite well and are easier to drive than a 53' trailer (going forward that is!) There are other configurations, but this is the most popular. And yeah, there are a lot of 13L Macks and Volvos pulling them.

    Looks like a work stand to me! Oil pan looks like it can come off, and much taller and you won't be able to see under the valve covers! Pretty much identical to ours, except ours is set up for a forklift coming in the side.

    Here is a link where it was listed for sale. Over 700 EJ models were built in 1937 and 1938.

    Welcome to the group! Is that the EH model truck with a wrecker boom attached to the rear? It was partly restored and painted white with green chassis when showed up at the last time as I remember. Anyway good luck on the project. Vlad

    The early MP equipped conventional truck had a right and left low beam relay. They later did away with them . They are located in the fuse panel by the clutch pedal. They are locate on the bottom far right. They are the small relays one above another. Position R11 and R12 on the fuse panel. There was a recall on the fuse panel for possible water damage

    I can't help with Cooney Coal, but the name is familiar as Cooney Bros. Construction Materials out of Tarrytown, New York. I don't want to hijack the thread, but I spent a summer in the mid-'50s driving for Cooney Tarrytown and would be interested in any word about that outfit. I was mainly assigned a very worn and very overloaded LF ten wheeler with a Lanova that smoked a lot and pulled very hard. Any information or memories to share will be appreciated.

    BBC / April 9, 2019 Dick Cole, the last veteran of a World War Two bombing raid on Japan in retaliation for the attack on Pearl Harbor, has died. He was 103 years old. The famed Doolittle raid was named for then Lt Col Jimmy Doolittle, who led the first US strikes against Japan during the war in 1942. Retired Lt Cole was Lt Col Doolittle's co-pilot in the lead plane. The raid, which included 16 B-25 bombers and 80 crew members, helped boost morale after Pearl Harbor. "There's another hole in our formation", Air Force chief of staff General David L Goldfein said in a statement on Tuesday. "The Legacy of the Doolittle Raiders - his legacy - will live forever in the hearts and minds of Airmen," he continued. Who is Dick Cole? Born in 1915 in Dayton, Ohio, Mr Cole enlisted in the military in November 1940, after two years of college at Ohio University. He was on a training mission in Oregon with the 17th Bombardment Group when he heard that Japan had attacked Pearl Harbor, according to a news release from the Air Force. After he was transferred to Columbia, South Carolina, Mr Cole and his entire group volunteered for a secret mission with no known details - what would become the Doolittle Raid. It wasn't until two days into the group's voyage to begin the raid that the men were told they were on their way to Tokyo. On 18 April, 1942, the US Army Air Force and the Doolittle Raiders launched an attack on Japan in retaliation for its devastating bombing of Pearl Harbor. Though it only caused minor damage, the attack dealt a critical blow to the Japanese, undermining its assurances that the country was safe from an American air attack. Of the 80 men who participated in the raid, eight were captured by Japanese forces. Six of these men died by execution or while imprisoned. Many had to parachute out of their planes as part of the mission, including Mr Cole who jumped out at around 9,000 ft (2,743m). Mr Cole retired from the Air Force in 1966, after logging more than 5,000 flight hours in 30 different aircrafts. He remained familiar at Air Force events, including the Doolittle Raiders' annual reunions. "We will miss Lt Col Cole, and offer our eternal thanks and condolences to his family," wrote Gen Goldfein. .

    deshalb sprechen wir kein deutsch. I only wish more people could understand even that much that these men have done.

    We live free today because of men like him. I wonder how many young men today understand this?
