  1. if you look closely you can see the "short door" on the driver side that opens above the fender platform. the door ends at the lower hinge.
  2. they are still available new, but costly: http://www.sirenworld.com/roto-ray-warning-light/
  3. i noticed that too. but seeing as the truck is 62 years old, it very well could have had a gas engine transplanted in it when the original diesel died.
  4. remember, pictures or it never happened!!
  5. no. fan clutch not locking will cause no ac condition at idle or while not moving. the ac needs airflow over the condenser to work. if the fan clutch is constantly locked it will be blowing air over the condenser cooling the refrigerant. i would suspect low refrigerant level. with the ac on, is the clutch engaged?
  6. slag pot carrier, also called slag kettle haulers. here is a short video of one in action after the molten steel is poured the slag is dumped into a pot or kettle that is picked up by that machine, and hauled out to the slag pit where it is dumped to cool off so it can be crushed and sold for as road construction base instead of stone.
  7. run the first 5, shift to high and go back to first. if it goes in, it is a 10 speed. if it grinds it is a 9
  8. agreed. that truck was definitely loved by someone for a long long time!!!
  9. my boss give me a hard time because i take better care of his trucks than i do my own. i can eat off the floors of the dump truck. you cant even see the floors in the pickup.
  10. a ground bearing uses a piston with a large steel plate under it to push down on the ground to lift the trailer so you can connect it with the solid neck. a non ground bearing trailer uses pistons on the hinged neck to pivot it to raise the trailer so connection can be made. if that makes sense
  11. yup. back then you could buy little one time use ether capsules. open the cap, drop the capsule in, and pop the cap closed. this would rupture the capsule allowing the ether to enter the air box for starting assistance.
  12. it has been a while for sure. but if i remember correctly the publicity pretty much ruined his business name and he retired to a new place up in sussex county far away from the rat race of the nu yawk area.
  13. Mike, the last time Steve logged on was Dec 2017.
  14. this whole thing would have been a non issue if you had not brought it up in the first place. i am pretty sure everyone else followed me in forgetting all about it two-three weeks after it all went down
  15. you are threatening to sue a website for directly quoting something that was news 11 years ago??? GET A LIFE!!!
  16. cause politicians smell worse then hogs
  17. i would not put money on that. a friend has a F750 with the 6.7 and a 3500 gallon oil recovery tank. it is a runner, both empty or loaded.
  18. not sure about down there in ausieland, but here in the northeast, that much ivy can grow in less than one year. i have seen two story houses go from ivy only on the ground at foundation to completely covered in three years.
  19. Dave, i put a Daikin 30,000 BTU pump outside, 2 9,000 BTU wall units downstairs(one front of the house and one rear) and a 12,000 BTU wall unit upstairs to replace the window unit ac units that were 15k downstairs and 10k upstairs. first month saw power consumption cut in half, and it has staid that way for the past 5 years.. because of allergies, i pretty much need to run the ac year round. this was the best investment i ever made. and recommend installing ductless to everyone that asks. i use the heat sparingly because i have baseboard hot water heat. i oversized the unit just like i did with the boiler, it makes it much more efficient.
  20. ^^^this.^^^ most do not work properly because they are not big enough for the intended space.
  21. i put in ductless ac/heat 4 years ago. cut electric bill in half from 98 per month to 52 per month. but i do not use the heat pump that much since i have gas baseboard heat. the only downside to the ductless id initial cost. my 30,000 BTU system was $6000 so ti will have paid for itself in electric savings in another 5 years. heat is a warm air instead of hot air. fan blows all the time, but you do not notice it. on heat it will raise temp of a 20X20 room from 65 degrees to 75 degrees in about 10 minutes.
  22. tarped, in the road, and nothing on the ground behind the truck. the box was down on the frame when it broke. my bet is he was driving and hit a bump and it broke from way too many overloaded runs.
  23. no, unfortunately i have not. i don't see why it would not work though.
  24. i will second the pertronix, i have used them for points conversions for close to 40 years. some units are still performing perfectly in 534 ford engines with over 1 million miles run time.
