  1. The same to me. But not that much to light my fire and make a trip to Roanoke
  2. And some examples on Russian roads.
  3. Spotted this one in New Brunswick NJ this past fall.
  4. All those things in red color look nice. Including Fox Laps the ones on the news.
  5. I had to delete some images in my old posts to get avalible room for new ones. The most of those which looked important were not deleted but resized to tiny scale. But that involved some job and doesn't lean me to posting much in the future. Just one more thing you have to track in your mind.
  6. looks in a VERY good shape. Congrats on the purchase!
  7. Quite easy matter. You wouldn't like to get hooked up on that handle. For example when seating down. So better to keep them sharp edge down or backwards. Something like on the #2 picture.
  8. Welcome to the group! Is that the EH model truck with a wrecker boom attached to the rear? It was partly restored and painted white with green chassis when showed up at the last time as I remember. Anyway good luck on the project. Vlad
  9. Jim, where do you dig such beauties from?? Great looking pair!
  10. Sounds very promising. I'm not in a hurry about them, have no less than a year before the time to put them on. Also I have two sets myself of which one is really poor and another in better shape. But with all the amount of labour involved in the project I wouldn't miss a chance to split the length of the story with a set of really good fenders. My preference is to keep the original way of connection two big halves of the fender. There's a seam of a kind a man connects sheets of metal when covering a roof of a house. Putting just weld instead of the original connection seems to me as a crime. Shipping is possible to arrange. There are some guys in the UK who ship used car pats to Moscow on a constant basis. I can find the contact info and try to work such enterteinment out. So please keep me in your mind.
  11. This makes sence. I'm known a little bit about design of your LF's since Stephen wrote me alot back in the day. Unfortunately he went to shade without even saing Goodbuy. To the moment i mostly went through all the chassis of my military Mack which is pretty similar to what you have in your pair. Also a big progress along Lanova engine is achieved. So when you're more close to initiate that project feel free to get in contact. Unfortunately it's complicated to me to get British visa. Otherwise I would be too likely to show up in person to look at the trucks. The AC seems to me as a really nice project. Pure mechanic, a pleasure to restore.
  12. I'm looking for a pair of good front fenders for L-model. But Fl is too long ways off for checking them out and transporting.
  13. Wow! Nice environment. I like the Volvo and that steer axle
  14. That sounds really sad. Hope you keep the track on anything like that if shows up. Any progress on the LFSW?
  15. That's the question flying in the air. Worth to make a call? As for me I'm afraid doing that. Because if the cost is attractive I would get plenty of rambling thoughts.
  16. Great looking place, put on the list.
  17. Rob, for the best I would like to get a pair of new mirrors. I sure could swap the dog and use your mirror but shipping could be a headach. I need a bit of time to figure out the best way. If anybody else really needs it I would step aside.
  18. Bob, I might be interested in them. Sure not for free. The shipping to NJ or DE would be involved.
  19. Looks like a good purchase. And nice to see old photos.
  20. Great looking classic pair! And a real pleasure to see how that gentleman cares about his trucks. At least about restored ones. Have never seen any in person but the pics always bring me to take my hat off.
  21. Yes, that's sure for the same reason. I would expect the elephant ears (trunnion support brackets) made of aluminium also used on your truck. The point is the relation of unsuspended mass to the suspended. As lower the figure as softer the ride (less hits, vibration etc). So for a hobby reason (no worry for the total weight) both is good to minimize unsuspended mass or to increase the suspended. Quite funny when someone comes to my place and see truck parts he use to talk how to make better one thing or another. And sometimes when I ask why it's better the answer is "It's lighter". Than you observe quite funny reaction when my words are "The heavier is better"
  22. I've got good berings of the pinions and the cross shafts the small bull gears cut on. Only the diff ones was the issue. Bought them new both for the NR and the R.
  23. I took apart the most of Canadian assembled 1988 R-model with Neway airride. Found that all the big suspension brackets together with crossmembers were assembled with Grade 5 (not Grade 8 ) body bound bolts. Seemed like the chassis was assembled at the factory that way. The fuel tank hangers and many other attachment brackets were installed using common style grade 5 bolts.
