  1. My new wiper system. I never really liked the L model wiper system. The standard B I thought was much better and was certainly more refined. You can throttle it back so it sweeps so slowly, you don't need a intermittent. Plus, the arms park and stay parked when not in use. None of that occurs in the L cab. With that in mind, when I cut apart my cab I removed all the air supply lines from the center windshield post. Now that I'm at the point of the rebuild where things are going back together, I needed to figure out what I was going to do. The search took a while, but this is what I came up wit

  2. We have the same type excremental wastes of human flesh in our family, (in laws) also. Extreme hypochondriacs awaiting and anticipating the next plague; and ALWAYS suffering with something. The drama is overwhelming at times, but they don't much talk to me since one of our political conversements where they were challenging and taking liberties with their guaranteed rights under the constitution. They took exception when I informed them that it is that document which guarantees your type the right to breed, which is against everyone else's constitution. With that one I thought the mother in la

  4. Saw my first "Double-Masker" today at the supermarket. It was ahead of me in the checkout line. Came with a bonus of wearing plastic gloves, and it wiped down the pad of the credit card machine. I go through my checkout routine, and head out to the parking lot. I did like I always do when I got out the door- ripped off my face diaper. I was walking to the pickup when double masker is pushing it's cart back to the store- it yells to me "Hey you need to put your mask on!" Without hesitation I shouted back "Hey you need to MYOFB!" Groan.

  5. My single axle donor truck is an H67LT so it's got aluminum suspension brackets and air tanks. I cleaned the tanks thoroughly (inside and out) and pressure tested them. I used a jitterbug with 320 paper and then wet sanded with 600, 800, and 1000; then polished with Mothers. They're still scarred from decades of hanging under a truck but I like them anyway. I'm not going for a showroom new look, I like a truck that has some character to it.

  6. Making steady progress! Paint: I went with single stage acrylic enamel, still ran me over $250/gallon, plus primer, hardener, etc... By the way, the Rust-Oleum Farm & Implement paint is awesome. That's what I used on the frame. We've used it on other trucks and it holds up! This week I've been sanding and doing body work. Discovered that my truck is a "local girl" when I revealed GUILFORD PAPER CO., INC. BRATTLEBORO, VT on the original paint on the door. Still trying to track down info on this company. So far my Brattleboro friends know nothing about it. I do have a call into t

  8. There are too many irregularities that have yet to be explained for me to believe the "official" outcome of the election is in any way legitimate...the biggest one being how Biden underperformed with every "important" demographic group in pretty much every precinct EXCEPT for a handful of urban districts in "key" swing states...in which he overperformed by *just* enough to eek out an electoral college victory. Add to that the whole foreign interference/hacking/tabulation software issues with the electronic voting machines, the "under-the-table" ballots counted when counting was allegedly suppo

  9. this really chaps my ASS!!! our gov't expects to spend 100's of billions of dollars on an expected 13,000 unaccompanied children at the southern border..., and bring (them) what (they) need,, While military families have to drive to food banks and gov't buildings to get assistance to eat, and keep a roof over their heads.. Mabey we need to tax the existing illegals the amount needed, (plus interest) and use that money to help our Military families.. Of course that would have such an impact on votes for Dem's that is so wide, it would be impossible to steal another Presidential election.. I st

  12. Just got these trinkets. I'm told the smaller dog is from the 1940s it's a early concept of the bulldog mascot. The other was introduced in the 70s they were apparently given to Mack executives as paperweights. The truck is possibly pewter it's heavy and well detailed it's also supposed to be only given to Mack executives. Anybody know anything about these I'd be happy to hear from you.

  13. we used to make acetylene bombs on the farm. get a condom. fire up the cutting torch and snuff it out. put the condom over the torch tip and fill it up. tie it off. hand on the wall, and light it with a cigarette on the end of a stick. one day we decided to go big. got filled a bunch of condoms. a dozen or so. put them in a big black trash bag and filled that up too. tied it off on the back of the barn. got a long pole and taped a lit cigarette to it, and hiding around the corner, lit it off. blew the back wall off the barn, blew out every window in a 1/4 mile radius, and

  14. "• If a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him. • Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America. • Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good. • It was cool for Joe Biden to "blackmail" the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquires about it. • Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote. • People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves. • Inflammatory rhetoric

  17. it all depends on what test is given, and what the settings are set at. the "quick test" is around 90% inaccurate. the "quick test" pretty much ensures a positive, no matter what or who it is performed on.. the current setting for covid as per CDC testing is usually set at 40-45%. the proper setting according to the doctor that developed the test is 15 to 20% by setting the limits so high they will read positive for pretty much anything.

  26. That door picture is quite a find. I hope that guy does have a picture or two of that truck from when it was in service. The repair on the bottom where the red putty is exposed would almost suggest that was done late '70s or early '80s (???) probably lead based paint on the lettering. You could strip that door to bare metal and you'll still see that burned into it. May want to have a good mask on when sanding 😷

  27. Midliner parts are readily available, just not in the U.S. They were sold all thru Europe and Australia, almost all parts can be ordered on line I guess that of risk of sounding rude and offending people in the U.S. and that is not my intention at all Americans are pretty spoilt compared to the rest of the world for spare parts shopping and arent used to shopping for parts like the rest of the world are We use a lot of interpretation of what parts are, we have our own books in languages we will never understand and before the internet we would telephone overseas, wake up a

  29. Speaking of land, real estate, sunshine and warm temps, I did look into homes for sale in Florida, kinda just for the heck of it. I saw no affordable homes, but there were some beautiful mobile or modular homes listed that seemed very reasonable. And I mean they were really nice, for like $38,000, beautiful places. We actually went and looked at several, but they were either in a trailer park, or a mobile home community, which is pretty much...a trailer park. And they were all nice too, fine looking 'hoods. The problem was, while the home was affordable, the lot rent at every place we

  31. The other Mack is one I have posted here before, way back on March 16th, 2016. That shot was taken at it's original home in Pennsylvania. On Saturday, I photographed it again, at it's third home, Edison, GA. It was recently replaced by a newer pumper and was just sold to a collector in Florida. Glad I caught it before it went south!

  32. It has been a while since my last post here, but that is because I have not photographed any more Mack fire apparatus. This past Saturday, I photographed two Mack pumpers. The first one was the first Mack MC chassis equipped with the 285 horsepower Mack diesel. At 41 years old, it is still in front line service in this rural Georgia county, but there is talk of replacing it, due to it having a standard transmission and only a couple members are able to operate it.
