  1. Hi,I understand why you're considering this. I've switched 2 valves for 4 valves and visa versa. The only thing that may be a slight problem is the front mount as you stated. Your RWS will have the circular trunnion mount with the 2 piece half moon rubber insulators. Depending on the year your 4 valve in the R model will have either a steel timing cover like your Superliner or a cast aluminun cover. If it is the steel cover the mount will bolt on your 2 valve engine. The mounting holes have to be drilled out and tapped to 7/16 from the 3/8 they now are to accept the bolts that are in the R mod
  2. Just walked out to get the mail.Waiting for me was Bulldog Magazine, Wheels of Time and Double clutch.Life is good. Steve
  3. No the seal will take it with no problem. Steve
  4. A bar puller is all you need to get the hub off. When you put the hub back on heat it in a deep fryer to 400 degrees. Have welding gloves handy and slide hub on quickly and install bolt right away to seat hub. If you pound the hub on you will mess up the crankshaft thrust washers.. Steve
  5. They are a very snug fit on the hub.Youv'e got to get all the rust and crud off and emery the hub and a little penetrating oil will help. Steve
  6. Back when we ran these trucks I used pressure treated lumber and cut these out with a bandsaw. Would last forever.Steve
  7. Congrats Patrick ! Wish you all the best. Steve
  8. You'll need 100 % argon. The aluminun has to be spotless clean on both sides, just like soldering. You use 5356 wire for strength, 4043 for a smoother look where strenght isn't as critical.You push the weld as apposed to pullin with steel. As stated,practice makes perfect. Steve
  9. Hi Don. That would be neat with an N-14 mechanical in it. Not sure what's in store for the Brock. Started it last week and let it run for awhile .The old 250 sounds good.Steve
  10. Thanks Mike. Every Superliner I've been around annoyed me with the rattling battert box lids.I have a 2 inch long piece of 2 by 2 alum. angle that is held on by the battery hold bolt. That is drilled and has a 3/8 u-nut in it. The lid is drilled and has a 3/8 by 1 stainless bolt holding it on. I'll get a pic tomorrow so it makes more sense. Steve
  11. I am now serious about selling my Superliner.Am planning on retiring from my job wrenching and would like somethiing more comfortable since I will be spending more time in it. This is a 1984 with a E-6 350 2 valve,Dynatard RTOO-14613 Fuller, Eaton DS/RS 404 3.70 ratio.The rear suspension is an AL-40 out of a 2003 CH.In last 50,000 miles has had; new front springs,king pins,wheel brngs,seals,tie rod and drag link ends,brakes(front and rear)new oil pan,vibration dampener,injectors,fan drive,radiator,Duralite intercooler,all new crossmembers,new Fontain fifth wheel,all new brake chambers front an
  12. Nice looking truck Ray. Almost looks like Jalopy Green. Wish you the best with it.I think you'll miss the 60 series though. Looks very clean. Steve
  13. Have seen water enter from loose carrier to housing bolts. Another place to check is under axle seats.I've seen housings crack there and allow water to enter.This is usually from loose u-.Might want to check that , have seen this on AL 40 and Reyco suspensions. Steve
  14. Nice finds Mike.They'll be in a better place soon. Steve
  15. Is that an AMBAC PLM pump or a Robert Bosch? Thanks, Steve
  16. On Tuesday I had the pleasure of having Ray drop in at work to visit for awhile. He had unloaded and reloaded in Buffalo ,had time to kill so stopped by to shoot the breeze for a bit. It's always a pleasure to talk with Ray, we are on the same wavelength.I snapped a couple as he was leaving. That 60 Series sounds sweet. Steve
  17. Thanks Ray. The old girl has been all over lately.Been running between Linden,NJ and Terre Haute IN alot.Lot of Winsor ON to Jersey too.Been too busy for my tastes,but make hay while the sun shines.Good hearing from you. Steve
  18. Went to vac out an overturned feed truck this morning.Didn't feel out of place 'cause there was another old dog there also. The driver was very lucky,didn't get hurt too bad, the firemen said he was out standing by the truck when they got there.
  19. Lookin' good Ray! Glad to see the old girl back and ready for work again.Shouldn't lack for power. Nice job, looking forward to seeing it again. Steve
  20. Sure looks like Ray's Superliner to me. Steve
  21. Sounds like the grounding switch on the PTO is shorting out with the water. Check the wires and put dielectrical grease on the connector at PTO.
  22. Don,we have a king pin press if you want to come over and borrow it. Steve
  23. Just be carefull,it can catch on fire.We had two burn,one on the George Washington Bridge and another 1 mile from the shop.Both were a total lose.The injector lines on the E=tech spray on the exhaust manifold and will start a fire. Steve
