    Roto brake can?

    What is so special about a "Roto" brake can for the sterr axle on a 20K front axle in a 96 RD that Mack wants $744.85 per brake can? I installed a standard type 24 can. Its doing the job. Never seen a Roto can. It bolt together

    Roto brake can?

    I was wondering if that brake can had more strength. That makes sense. Its now just a plow truck. Doesn't ever exceed 45 mph & will never haul any weight again. Thanks for the reply

    1979 Chevy Bison

    Info on GM trucks can be hard to obtain. When GM got out of the truck business it seems the records weren't kept anywhere. Also I was told by a Retired GM guru that there was a warehouse fire that destroyed a lot of info. Not sure if that's true. My brother has 2 very rare Astro's that he dug deep on for info. Took almost 2 years.
  11. Its interesting because I like the grill. Everyone has different taste and that's a good thing. I think the Grill is cool just because they didn't make a lot of em. Very cool truck all around!! Enjoy it. Ya Gotta have Pride in your Ride!!! Please don't take it personally Maddog

    The Powerball

    What would you do if ya won the Lottery? Easy, I'd just keep collecting & trucking until the money was gone.
  14. I plowed snow with a DM that was rusty. Had to wear rain pants in slushy snow. Boss kept trying to replace the truck but I liked it and made him keep it. Many cans of spray foam, sheet metal kept it going for more years

    Pictures of the Week

    That's cool. Thanks for the link to the show pics. That 80's Freightliner sure had a lot of time spent on it. Looks just like the truck in one of my Freightliner ads from back in the day. Lot of nice trucks there
  16. Wow. That's almost a 20 year run. Impressive
  17. Swap the wires in heater fan. Did that swap to a DM plow truck once. Froze my butt off next storm. Blower motor going full tilt. But in reverse.
  18. What about the freightliner COE next to it? Were there any other COE's there? My son was showing his Dairy calf at Cornish fair so we didn't make it to the show
