  1. I am still looking for an exhaust manifold for an EN401 if anyone has one.
  2. Ok thank you, I'll let you know when I get it removed.
  3. Here are two. Let me know if you need more. Thanks for your consideration.
  4. I'm still looking for an exhaust manifold for an EN401 if anyone has any leads - thanks in advance.
  5. In the summer of 1980, I was working at the Bernardsville, (N.J.) car wash, and one day struck up a conversation with a guy who was driving what I think was a DM800, a green tandem dump with “Chapter 11 Trucking” on the door with artwork which featured the Monopoly man. The driver, Robert Stelle, who owned the truck, gave me his card, and said he was looking for a driver. I quit the car wash the next day and embarked on my short-lived trucking career. The truck had a bad clutch, and he attempted to teach me how to shift without it. Unfortunately, he did not pay me for learning, and I didn’
  6. No, I never did. I would definitely be interested in that!
  7. I'm changing a defective ignition switch. The old switch has three terminals (two are piggybacked) and four wires. None of the terminals or wires are labeled. The new switch terminals are marked BAT ACC ST & IGN. Does anyone have a wiring diagram? Thanks!
  8. Thanks for the words of encouragement, h67st and tjc transport. That definitely seems to be the case!
  9. I admire that! Someday I may get to that point! I know what you mean, though, you have a vision of how it will turn out, and you know whether you made your mark or not. Where in Philly are you?
  10. Thank you! By any chance do you know a fellow named Blackie who is active with that fire truck museum up in Mahanoy City?
  11. I have a 1975 Diamond Reo DC10164 I would like to bring to Macungie. It was re-engined some years ago with a Cummins VT555. It was in regular service as a garbage packer until November, 2016. The packer body was removed and it was garaged until I bought it the following November. It is extremely hard to start. I can start it with ether, (which I am told is not good practice) and once it starts, it stays running and sounds and runs fine. While I would appreciate any help given online, I am quite new to the hobby and don't have the expertise to get it running
  12. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. According to the book I have (Parts List 2342; for B42IT, for EN401 Engine) it has the same part numbers. If it cannot be welded, I would be looking for one also. Thank you. I just started the truck the other day and it ran fine, so the Exhaust Manifold is the only thing holding it back.
