  3. fire truck hauled

    I'm trying to help a fire department get a truck hauled from Harlan ky to paris ark. truck is 8ft wide, 8ft 2 in high, 25ft long, and weighs 15,640 lbs. thanks in advance joe
  4. Maxidyne/Maxitorque clarification

    when I was hauling coal off of the strip mines I always used the jake brake to shift gears. always have shifted that way 5-6 speeds 8-9-10-12 -13-15-and 18speed quadraplex and single stick.
  5. 24x8.0 5 degree

    24x8.55 or 24x 9.0 s are more common now. they will work just fine that's what we ran on the coal trucks where I used to work at. we had some trucks that had all 3 sizes on them and you had to watch carefully about not mixing the lock rings up when mounting tires.
  6. clutch adjustment

    thank you FJH I was thinking that was how you did it but I wasn't sure if it was clockwise or counter
  7. clutch adjustment

    I need some help how do you adjust where a clutch grabs. I put a new clutch in our 1980 s1800 international tanker it has the 446 gas engine in it and it is catching at the top. it has the 3/4 bolt looking thing on the pressure plate. I would like to get it to where it catches about half way or closer to the floor as we have a couple of drivers who like to rest there foot on the pedal for some reason.
  8. Where did THAT come from??

    good ole shot or 2 or 3 of clear moon shine and honey warmed up and go to bed while you still can will clear you right up.
  9. New to the form and need help.

    I will agree with don we have 4 cf macks at yocum creek vol fire department and all but 1 have drum brakes and when it needs rotors I will convert it to drum brakes. its not that hard to do. go to a salvage yard and find a single axle mack and take everything off of the rear or if you have a few members who don't mind getting dirty take the whole rear end out from under it.
  10. Merry Christmas All:

    MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and your family Rob good to hear from you.
