  1. Ex Oshkosh M1075 in Abu Daubi with Jeep cab and modified Lonestar for the "help" to run errands in. Maybe it will be a new fad for our soccer moms??
  2. I'll most likely make the first shake down runs in 2 or 3 weeks on friday and saturday to get my ancient Garlits Drive adjusted up and get used to it's handling.I'm track limited to 7.00 /200mph til I get an updated dual chute system. Come in as my crew if you want, it's only me, my daughter in law and grandson. Ones a back up girl and the other is a tire wipe. As a nostalgia funny it is a traditional self starting unit, 35% Nitro with the balance Castor oil and Methanol.
  3. I would like the whistles to blow every half hour for 3 minutes. . . at night. . . in Virginia.
  4. There a 9 different venturi sizes for the Strumberg SF2/SFM2 they range from 13/16" up to 1 1/16" and some have a Drip Tube set up to prevent gravity siphoning of fuel on shut down. I personally think checking the throttle linkage is allowing the butterfly to lay against the curb idle screw, adjusting the Zenith Lo Speed mixture and fine tuning it overall to work with the modern crap gas would be you best bet. My ACs all have different carbs, 3 have Tillotson, 2 have Zenith and 1 has a Strumberg SF1/SFM1 .

    Denmark!! No wonder he didn't answer when I called him a number of weeks ago! God bless him!
  8. That is right up David Wild's alley, he moves aircraft and other massive things this would be a piece of cake. .
  9. Possible but also may be a matter of readjusting the low speed jet and idle screw to bring it down. The idle may have been raised to compensate for the wear issues in the magneto when it was a working unit..
  10. I posted the question but I guess not many saw it. Not a problem, I did enjoy the ride out and had a great time exploring the area. A ton of interesting things there, I actually wished I had more time to spend in the area.
  11. That's why I keep my 93 Marmon. Paper log and my Garmin to map miles and time. Haven't had an issue. . . yet.
  12. And they appear to be semi analog not full digital. Rather replace a gauge driver than the entire panel.
  13. ELD - AOBRD EXEMPTIONS The ELD rule applies to most motor carriers and drivers currently required to maintain Records of Duty Status (RODS) per Part 395, 49 CFR 395.8(a). The rule applies to commercial buses as well as trucks, and to Canada- and Mexico-domiciled drivers. The FMCSA will, however, allow permit carriers using AOBRDs before December 18, 2017, to install and use AOBRD software until December 16, 2019, providing the carrier is ELD ready. So who, exactly, is exempt from the ELD mandate? Below are the top six exemptions. Vehicles Manufactured Before 2000 An electronic logging device (ELD) unit requires an engine control module (ECM). However, most engines manufactured before 2000 lack an ECM. Therefore, if a commercial motor vehicle’s engine was manufactured in 2000 or earlier, that vehicle is exempt from being required to use an ELD. This exemption previously listed the cutoff year to be for the vehicle. However, it’s the engine that counts, and engines can be swapped. This exemption now applies to the engine’s model year, regardless of the vehicle’s registration date. Vehicles with engine models in 2000 or later require ELDs, even if the vehicle itself was manufactured before 2000. Learn more: The Pre-2000 Model Year Exemption Applies to Engines, Not the VIN Drivers Who Maintain RODS for 8 Days or Less Drivers who maintain Record of Duty Status (RODS) for 8 days or fewer in a 30-day rolling period don’t need an ELD. They need to maintain paper logs, but the ELD itself isn’t legally required. This includes short-haul drivers who occasionally take longer trips. However, drivers who break the short-haul exception more than 8 times in a 30-day period will need an ELD for the rest of that cycle. This ELD exemption means that short-haul drivers who make longer trips infrequently don't have to upgrade. 100 Air-mile Radius Some commercial drivers license (CDL) drivers fall under the short-haul exemption. These drivers report to work and either transport their loads to a specific location or completes a daily delivery. They then return their truck and go home. To qualify, drivers must: Operate within a 100 air-mile radius of their normal work reporting location Start and end the day at the same location Be released from work within 12 hours Have at least 10 hours off duty between each 12-hour shift Not drive more than 11 hours 150 Air-mile Radius non-CDL drivers fall under the short-haul exemption. To qualify, they must: Operate within a 150 air-mile radius of the location where they report to and are released from work Return to the normal reporting location at the end of each duty tour Additionally, they must not: Drive any vehicle that requires a CDL. Drive after 14 hours of coming on duty on 5 days of any period of 7 consecutive days Drive after 16 hours of coming on duty on 2 days of any period of 7 consecutive day
  14. The hand hole/ inspection cover in in the drivers compartment fan cover. Rectangular cover held on with 8 screws. Interested on how to unclamp the magneto too.
