    RD tractor

    An ‘01 with less than 500k on a etech 350 mated to an 8ll...? One of the best combos ever. If takin care of even just a little should be good for awhile yet. My 01 ch with a 427 and a 15spd Eaton has 1.2 million in it and was only rebuilt once at 600k. The E-7 is a tough motor. Cams and liner issues are some if any of the “major” concerns. Rebuilding is reasonable when the time comes. And the best part- No emissions.

    UPS and Mack

    I’m all Mack. I don’t look at anything newer than 2003. When we can’t keep them running time to close the doors. They haul the same loads time and again. I know it’s not an option for everyone, but for my operation it’s the best way to maximize our money. I feel for everyone running newer equipment that is unreliable.

    Timing issue maybe?

    How’s you’re dad like the section of I88 between Oneonta and Cobleskill? To say it’s rough would be kind!
  5. Is it going to be put up for sale?
  6. I’ve got a 20001CH with a setback front axle and my hood is in need of replacement. My question is does anyone know of a vision hood would work on this truck? My guess is it won’t but maybe someone else has some definitive answers.

    Engine bloch heater....

    I don't think it matters what wires go to what terminals. It's a coil inside looking for ground to resist against, generate heat and in turn heat up your coolant.

    How to Check Hydraulic Oil

    Most of the time the thermometer is also a sight gauge, meaning the hydraulic fluid will be visible in the thermometer if at the same level.

    We still know it's you! Mine got messed up to but luckily it's not my password to anything. I have confidence Barry will have things sorted out shortly. I can't even imagine trying to run a site like this.

    Also looks like my username is gone and my login name is now my username. I'm OK with that I just don't want anyone else to be confused.

    That sounds like a good find. How are the crossmembers? I've got a replace all the crossmembers on my 35 ton lowboy.
