  1. E7 eng brake

    I’ve heard of a brand that uses an engine brake and an exhaust brake together, and apparently works well.
  2. 1980 Peterbilt 359 International Transport

    Nice job on the interior clean out. And fixing all them little things, I always like jumping in an old truck and all them little things work. Shows the owner looks after it.

    Oh man I’m hearing you about the mice. I park my truck out in the sticks and occasionally we get the odd mouse in the truck. I was trying to sleep one night when I heard a russeling and felt a little bastard run over me. Needless to say, I made a few miles that night.

    Nice work so far. Should clean up to be a real nice old truck.
  5. birthday present

    Happy birthday! And nice score... I’ll be following.
  6. Chrome rims for spokes

    You don’t happen to have a link for the stainless inserts? i think Albury electroplating want about $270 per rim, super chrome in Sydney even more.
  7. Pretty Sure

    Oh, there is a box on there indeed. I hardly noticed.
  8. Chrome rims for spokes

    You can get your normal rims electroplated if you can’t find any to buy. Chances are they will be a lot better quality than the cheap ones. But finding the right company to do it is another matter. Best of luck.
  9. Sorry, bugger all means very little.
  10. RB

    They are very similar to our valueliner, which I believe came out in '87.
  11. That was their thinking years ago, to run a big engine with a small load for fuel economy. Hence the cummins k19 and 3408 cat as well as Mack v8. But fuel economy is a speculative thing. Unless you can compare the two on the same day, with the same load and the same driver you will never have a true comparison. And the difference would be bugger all when empty id say.
  12. It's a dying art what he is doing. Now days it's all done using vinyl stickers. We had all our trailers done by a bloke in Toowoomba when they were new.
  13. Hino to launch heavy trucks in North America

    Does the conventional and coe hino share the same cab? Nothing wrong with Japanese trucks, they are reasonably simple and real work horses. I quite like the one pictured.
  14. Just my opinion, but I'd stick with what the truck came with from factory. Makes the whole job a bit easier.
  15. Anything the government sticks it nose in usually turns to shit. A 20 yo truck would have a series 60, n14 or c15 in it now days. Hardly the black smoke pumping things the politicians are thinking of when they say around watching "dual" and came up with these ideas.
