    My 1960 B-75

    A few set backs, had to change oil pump-developed a crack in pipe plug threads, on a fitting I never turned. Fan hub started having issues so replaced it with a Horton 7500HP-found a good used one. And for the third time removed the PT pump and had to insist the throttle shaft be changed because...

    The curved pieces will be black to match fenders, the large filler panels will be the same as cab. Working on the inner mounts and stabilizers for the filler panels. And the hood could possibly be made out of aluminum, haven't made up my mind yet.

    I custom cut and rolled these fender extensions to attach to fenders and fender panels, perfect radius all made from 14 gauge. Plus there are horizontal braces that will be riveted to the panels on the inside the full length.

    Get an old CR book and find a seal with the right dimensions. Just my two cents.

    Well If I was closer I would help you. You might just want to remove the ring in the hub and pack the bearings and reuse that seal, IDK. I see the spindle has been staked with a punch to make the bearing fit tighter. Careful driving the swage pin out of the king pin boss. You will probably need...

    Project REO Speedwagon

    I can't help you with removing the seat, most horn buttons on old rigs required pushing down and rotating the button at the same time. For the seal I would remove the wear ring from the spindle and remove the ring from the hub. Measure and find a modern seal to replace with. It may even take...

    I have never tried anything but OEM myself, I've had not so good luck with aftermarket engine controls such as sensors so i just go with OEM when it comes to major controls.

    Removing Walking Beams

    It's pretty obvious you just want to be a smart a$$. You don't know half of what your talking about because you never tried it. And as far as justifying my experience-You'll never be able to come close to the work I've done. And It's time to hit the report button for talking about politics.

    Removing Walking Beams

    I'm older than you, so your the sonny. and the caps knock out with a a big punch. And everyone I know that's used a cut-off saw wouldn't go back to the torch method. And yes you have stink but there is no burning rubber and one hell of allot less smoke. It's about working smarter not harder. I...

    Removing Walking Beams

    If your working in a shop for a living my way is the fastest easiest way to remove the beams-hands down. I've done too many both ways. A cutoff saw is the fastest. And most young fellers don't want to work or get burned. Being a contractor you should own a cutoff saw, I would guess anyhow, you...

    Freightliner and Western Star are both multiplex, SAM module, anything in those years and up that had Mercedes power was multiplex. The SAM can have a multitude of operations to perform, other than just lights. Unless you have a wiring diagram from the serial number it can be a chore.
