  1. Unfortunately your pictures did not load
  2. I drove all over long before those darn things and the few times i tried they were inacurte but i will find that address on a map Thanks1
  3. do you have any pictures you can post ? You might try having someone pull on the handle with a hook while you rock back and forth a little. dried up grease won't be a problem until the temps are in the teens. you've got a lot of rust along with worn parts try spraying everything on the underside with a good penetrating oil like thrust, kroil or last resort pb blaster
  4. back in '76 it's unlikely the factory installed the fifth whee,l more than likely it was installed by a body builder , it could be a fontaine, holland, asf, or a simplex
  5. if there is a bolt sticking out the side it is a release bolt if it isn't folded over hit it with a sledge hammer that will release the lock bar
  6. are you parked on flat level ground? is the tractor backed up against the king pin? what make fifth wheel is it?
  7. AOC is well hmm how do I put this. A great example of why campaign finance reform is necessary, she's bought and paid for by a big group the twit can't produce a thought she's as stupid as she is pretty if it weren't for politics she would be doing porn!
  8. GOOD! I once stated that we would be better off if we got rid of all of the politicians and put fifth graders in their place this confirms my belief
  9. I'm considering a trip to trucktoberfest but I find two different locations one says it's in Macungie the other says it's in Allentown If anyone can fill me in I would appreciate it
  10. Well I can tell you if a repair shop is properly insured their insurance company prohibits repair of fifth wheels. My insurance company prohibited me from anything related to the fifth wheel because they said it could come uncoupled and a trailer would go careening all over and kill everyone in it's path, I then asked that underwriter if i could replace king pins on a trailer and his reply was yes why not. The underwriters don't have a complete understanding of what it is that they are dealing with.
  11. No I mean that it is necessary to have up and down movement between fifth wheel and upper coupler, you will see a gap if you are not on flat level ground. More than likely with a quarter frame he does not have crank legs but with a trailer that has crank legs you should be able to raise the trailer as much as a half inch above the fifth wheel while coupled.
  12. Scientists have proved that mice and rats raised in the laboratory have smaller brains and smaller adrenal glands than their counterparts in the wild. The scientists have concluded it is because they are given food and water rather than have to figure out how to get it on their own. This is a perfect example of how the welfare system is a failure and there are many other examples of how the welfare system is a failure. Welfare is a Democrat program and if it wasn't intended to destroy and control blacks I will be shocked because that is what seems to be it's main outcome.
  13. Interesting article. I always cringe when i hear about gun control because everyone knows it does not work only law abiding citizens obey the law. In Chicago there is a new State attorney (district attorney in other states) Democrat, black female received campaign money from George Soros she refuses to prosecute property crimes valued at less than $250.00 doesn't ask for bail or only a low bail for people picked up on gun charges that have already been convicted of felonies. This is why there is always more than 2 dozen shootings in Chicago every weekend . The Mayor of Chicago a black female lesbian helped create a state law requiring schools to teach LGBTQ history she claims all of the gun violence is due to young men not knowing how to settle disputes. If she believes that then instead of LGBTQ history why don't she create a law to teach conflict resolution? But what place do I have stating any of that being that I'm a middle age middle class white christian conservative heterosexual male AKA the problem.
