    Keith, a bit of help with that is too appreciated. I sure could do it myself since I have a truck with a correct hole and the radio. But the trouble grows up from a positive matter. The Cobra CB I bought is new. And I too dislike to get some fresh scratches on its body moving it inside the hole. Should put some self adhesive paper bend on to protect. No issue with scratches if I install it there. But not nice if on the ash tray in the center of the dash.

    So after some investigation Vlad, I found the CB is mounted with 2 screws mounted to the front. Screwed into some home made brackets.

    The CB is actually resting on some foam so there isn't much stress on the front. 

    I attached some pics to help.

    As for the amount of room .  It fits no problem. You could even set it in a little farther if you want . Just a little though. Remember you need room for antenna and power wires .

    Please keep us posted on your progress :thumb:

    Ok peoples time for some real dumbness now 

    I have even worked out put music on the video, so it may help to keep you awake as you watch or listen to me dribble on like the fool that I am 
    Any the Mack has progressed a fare way since the last video (I think ) ???LOL

    So here you go sit back relax and with any luck you will have a laugh , I know I did 



    Great videos . Thanks Paul.  

    I was thinking , even if you posted your wiper problem , I would have never thought to ask if you were using control properly. I think I would have suggested a new control first , before you changed wiper motor.The  wiper motor in the plow is 32 years old and is used every time time truck is out plowing . Had to replace control though.

  3. Vlad, my favourite spot is on the dash by the ash tray. Its easy to mount and easy to use there. 

    My 1988 R has it mounted in the overhead console. It looks really good and is tidy. But its not as handy to access controls though. But it is certainly manageable. 

    My off breed truck has it overhead as well. in the centre. the mic cord hangs down in front of me . but it doesn't bother me at all. its nice and handy.

    I have added pics for you. Maybe it helps a little .

  4. At the very bottom of the screen there is a spot that says "Theme" . I had mine set to Carbon. (Like button wasn't there) When I changed it to Flux (default) or just Default , the little Bulldog is there for a LIKE button. I kinda like it because you have the choice of 5 different reactions.

    Themes from westerns were some of the best, I had these on a flash drive when I would travel on my Goldwing.

    Thanks Truck Shop. I love spaghetti westerns . When I hear that music, I see a horse and rider in the distance, slowly getting closer with a dust trail behind them. It got me thinking I could do the same with an old bulldog and a worn out driver that doesn't look anything like Clint Eastwood. 

    Here is my version with the music from Good, Bad and Ugly . 

    Thanks again for the thread :thumb:

  6. I'm sure it will be good to the new owner. It was well taken care of.

     I bet you have a new truck soon. Please let us know what you get. ………………Even if its an off breed .

  7. Hopefully you like the new SPIF spec'd truck . I haven't met too many people that like them. 

    It seems to me that more people in our area are switching to the dual steering axles instead  of a steering lift axle .

    I believe the University of Wisconsin ended up with the IH archives. They might be able to help you out.

    Check behind the glove box to see if there is a line ticket there. I found the ticket for my 72 there.

    Thanks for the info. I tried to find the line ticket already. Didn't have any luck. I've been told that I can get one from International. One day I will try that .

  9. Thanks very much for the info Paul.  This has me really interested now. I just thought they were rare around me.

    I have heard of Sundance II's , but I have never been able to find out the difference between the 2 of them. I did find out that the Sundance decor package was $333.56.

    My International has everything listed below.

    I have had to offload in the center of a Chicago street because the crown in the road was just as bad. Its just common sence you dont try to move a machine if the trailer is leaning. And look at the sag in those crap ramps...SMH


    I found that out the hard way. No pics to prove.  I slid one off that wasn't leaning as much. Once it starts to go there is no stopping it. 

    It was 25 years ago. My machine didn't have ROPS. All i could do was jump as far away as I could. Machine ended up in the ditch ,upside down, 3 inches from my legs . Was a Lucky day ,and a life lesson. 

    I'm with Lmackattack, if the floats not level , machine is not coming off.
