  1. The truck developed issues with the injection pump so it has been parked while I worked on finishing my Ford F800 and the green Mack.
  2. I have grown to like the knuckle boom and the fact that I can keep the cable really short to minimize the swing. I grew up around cranes and it took a lot of experience and practice to keep the load from swinging. This is not an issue with a knuckle boom I had to use the green Mack to put the fifth wheel on the ford F800 Friday because the forklift is down for a brake job
  3. If the truck still has a sleeper on it you may be able to register it as an RV. you need to check your state laws to see what is legal there.
  4. Good luck I run a small land surveying business
  5. Where are you located? does the truck have a sleeper? what year is the truck?
  6. Yes with only one tire in the air you have to rotate the tire two revolutions to get the gear ratio. if you don’t want to change the drivetrain you have a 45 mph truck there. If you put 9-20’s on it and a overdrive, from a large pickup, you will have a nice local toy. if you want to haul a camper then it needs a drivetrain swap. For my Chevy I am looking for a K30 and doing a body swap. My friends think I should put an LS motor in it
  7. My 1942 1.5 ton Chevy has a 6.67 gear ratio in both axles. The same ratio is in the CCKW, WW2 2.5 ton
  8. Lately I have seen a bunch of container chassis that are running 22.5 tires I have tube tires on a few older trucks, that I keep local, only until they wear out
  9. 22.5 fit 20” spiders 24.5 fit 22” spiders at least this is my understanding, and is due to how the tires are measured there are still Speedo shops around. And gear adapters are still available. A lot of speedometers after the 80’s are electronic and calibrated by changing switches on the back of the speedometer
  10. I want to go the other way with my transfer case my transfer case is a Rockwell MR-226 (meritor T-226) that I want to convert from a shifter for the hi-lo function to air shift but I have not found any information on line about how to do this
  11. That applies to the roads and most of the freeways in Southern California Here the sign would read “sports bras required”
  12. Mine is grimy behind the Parking brake release Valves
  13. I am getting mama a new phone so it will be easier for her to pick up all of my parts
