  1. Maybe if we vetted any of the foreign personnel coming to learn instead of pencil whipping them on the word of their government this wouldn't happen.
  2. The entire body design is for low cost manufacturing. All the body panels are made with a shear and a brake. no curves so no expensive tooling and presses. But like his hyped Semi that he took tons of deposits on this will quietly go away. I recall his semi was to be in production this past summer. The pick up if produced will be the new thing in Hollywood to be seen in.
  3. The extended nose factory or a mod for a longer power pack? Either way it looks well done. Paul
  4. Best restored AC I've seen! Is the dump body a new copy? Paul
  5. Would not mind trying to buy the 1957 Nomad sitting behind it.
  6. The Super Pumper system officially went into service in October 1965 and had already been special called to operate at a lumberyard fire in Brooklyn 2 months before that had gone to 11 alarms. The Super Pumper drafted at this incident and pumped more than 7 million gallons of water at a time when the city was experiencing severe drought conditions. There is a CBC news video around with shots of it in action. I lost it with a computer crash a few years ago Search for 1965 11 alarm lumberyard fire in Brooklyn NYC
  7. His description leads to a ECM with the sensors disabled and components removed and de-rating (limp mode).
  8. He moved off Long Island here is his new contact info http://arthurgouldrebuilders.com/contact.html Arthur Gould Rebuilders 789 Wachusett St. Holden, MA 01520 United States Phone: 508-210-0891 .
  9. I was told most likely from the refinery to the tank cars to the tanker trucks to the terminal than from the terminal to the distributors which in the end sell to your supplier. I was told all it takes is a tank car or tank trailer that delivered ethanol in bulk to have 50 or so gallons in the bottom of the tanks or in the lines to taint the load of diesel.
  10. My supplier sent me this from Bell Performance Fuel. here is the article Diesel Fuel Tank Corrosion: A New Culprit Bell Performance Ever since the EPA mandated the introduction of ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD), fueling stations and stored fuel users have been consistently reporting new cases of corrosion in their storage tanks. According to the results of the latest surveys, ethanol contamination in diesel fuel may be to blame. On June 1, 2006, the sulfur content of ULSD was reduced from 500 parts-per-million (ppm) in low sulfur diesel (LSD) to 15 ppm in ULSD. One consequence of the reduced sulfur content was the creation of a more favorable environment for microbes and bacteria to develop and thrive. This problem is in addition to other known trade-offs to ULSD like increased costs (a few cents more per gallon), 1- to 2-percent less energy, and decreased lubricity requiring the use of additives (or the addition of biodiesel). In addition, the refining process that removes the sulfur also removes high-energy aromatics, which corresponds to a 1- to 2-percent increase in fuel consumption. However, what surprised many analysts were the reported instances of accelerated corrosion in storage tanks and dispensing equipment in as little as six months. The Findings of an Independent Study In response to industry concerns about the unexplained accelerated corrosion, the Petroleum Equipment Institute surveyed the diesel fuel industry to identify the issues with systems storing and dispensing ULSD. Their survey revealed sporadic problems occurring in all regions of the country, regardless of the age of the equipment. As a result, the Clean Diesel Fuel Alliance (CDFA) was formed, which includes the American Petroleum Institute, Ford Motor Co., the National Association of Convenience Stores, the National Association of Truck Stop Operators, Petroleum Equipment Institute, Petroleum Marketers Association of America, Association of American Railroads, and Steel Tank Institute. The CDFA funded an independent research project by Battelle Memorial Institute to investigate corrosion in systems storing and dispensing ULSD. The study’s conclusions were announced Sept. 5, 2012, in a 146-page report entitled, “Corrosion in Systems Storing and Dispensing Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD), Hypotheses Investigation.” The Battelle study sampled six sites nationwide that reported accelerated corrosion in ULSD systems. Samples from the six sites were analyzed for the presence of a variety of contaminants and possible contributors. According to the report, among other contaminants, acetic acid was found at all sites from a variety of samples (fuel, water bottoms, vapor, and corrosion scrapings). In addition, the Battelle report stated that ethanol was unexpectedly identified and measured at five of the six sites, along with acetobacter microorganisms, in the majority of water bottom samples. The Battelle report hypothesized that the acetic acid is likely produced by acetobacter feeding on low levels of ethanol contamination. The report further identified this as the most likely cause of the corrosion. The report states, “The source of the ethanol is unknown; however, diesel fuel is often delivered in the same trucks as ethanol-blended gasoline. Also, some underground storage tanks for storing ULSD, which have been converted from gasoline tanks could have manifolded ventilation systems with gasoline tanks. Thus, it is possible that there be some cross contamination of ethanol into ULSD.” However, this hypothesis has drawn criticism from the ethanol industry. It points out that, under normal, everyday storage and handling conditions, ethanol should never come into contact with diesel fuel since ethanol is a gasoline additive. It also said that none of the six sites sampled included manifolded ventilation systems. These critics also point out that Battelle’s report drew its conclusions from a very small sample set. In addition, the Renewable Fuels Association (representing the ethanol industry) was not included in the investigation and not given an opportunity to provide feedback. It is too early to draw definitive conclusions on how ULSD tanks are being contaminated with ethanol or why accelerated corrosion occurs in some ULSD tanks while other ULSD tanks remain largely unaffected. What’s the Next Step For Diesel Users? The CDFA is currently deciding whether to move forward with further research. The Battelle report recommends additional research be focused on samples from a larger, more diverse set of underground storage tanks over a period of time. The study would sample and monitor ULSD tank systems with and without accelerated corrosion events and investigate the possible source of ethanol contamination. There continues to be many unanswered questions. More research by the industry is needed to reach a definitive conclusion. In the meantime, fueling stations and diesel users who are being impacted by this corrosion problem may need to turn to fuel stability additives like Dee-Zol Life and Dee-Zol to negate the performance issues that this problem will inevitably bring.
  11. Probably means Automated Motor you know with a Ca-puter running it.
  12. I would check the PH in the fuel, the refinery or who ever supplies it to your source may be adding chemicals to the fuel to dispose of it. Only takes a micro percentage to cause the issues. Also a ground set up from tank to ground would be an easy check. Static electricity is a possibility.
  13. Geez Ollie, it always works in the movies.
