    Growing tired of the Kavanaugh show

    Im not too fond of one side or the other, but it seems pretty obvious that this guy is getting railroaded. Either way, I'd like to stop hearing about it. Andy

    And he'll be driving again tomorrow..........

    Certainly didn't say the glare was an excuse, just a factor.

    Bad deal for sure, hope everyone came out okay. Judging by everyone in the video putting the hands over there eyes, I wouldn't be surprised if solar glare made things worse.

    I'm no expert, but it looks like a U to me.

    Sounds good, did you say you were gonna put a 400 Cummins and a 13 speed or something like that? Andy

    Stop off in Mass Monday

    Brockton is Rocky Marciano's hometown I believe. I wish I was around as well, I live about an hour away and will be working even closer in Needham. It just probably wouldn't work out for me. Good luck, Andy

    That makes sense, the upper push valve is for the tractor, I assumed the lower would have just been for the trailer. I think the air system is going to be the most challenging part of the truck for me because of how little I know about them. Thanks for all the replys, it is very helpful. Andy

    That would make alot of sense I suppose, but everything still was connected. Also both push pull valve appear original as well, they share a bracket and have IH branding on them. Sorry for the bad pic but it might help. Andy

    They appear original to me, but maybe one was added? Andy

    This is where I get confused, I have the Dry Road/Slippery Road switch, as well as the "Truck Tractor Protection" flip style valve. One side is labeled NORMAL the other side says "EMERGENCY'. Then on the other side of the dash I have 2 push- pull style valves, one I pushed in to move the tractor as you would suspect and I presume the other was for airing up the trailer. The system was cannablized when I got the truck because it hadn't been used as a tractor since at least the mid 80's. Things were disconnected, plugged and in general disrepair, I made a good drawing of the existing system but I think it will have me chasing my tail due to all the uncertainties. Thanks, Andy

    Sorry for the delay with pictures, I've been getting so little done it's depressing. I'm hoping to spend some time on it this weekend. The schematic from another make truck may be helpful. Here are some pictures of the dash valves, I'm not clear how the dash mounted tractor protection valve is supposed to work. Andy

    I also got a new battery box, the ones I had we're in real bad shape and I wanted a box the could hold all 4 batteries and fit on the passenger side of the frame, behind the stack bracket. That leaves the DS with enough space to mount the hydraulic tank my buddy gave me. Andy
