    Is the point of the sunshade to sit as low as possible with a very tall stick? I don't quite understand. Is there some advantage to sitting like that or just a cool look?

    My personal opinion is that some people think that it is cool.

    Myself, I find that to be quite uncomfortable to try to drive that way.

  2. Jeff,

    Talk to a heavy towing company as they pull axles on a regular basis.  It might just be cheaper to hire them to pull the axle than to buy the tool for the single use.

    There are pliers made specifically for removing those split axle cones.  One jaw is pointed to spread the cone for removal.


    Other Jeff.

    I have a neighbor who hates bathing. Fortunately not a close neighbor.

    A friend of mine sprayed him off with a hose once, he was mad as he** about it😂

    That one is a 2 valve, yes? 

    Yes, it is a 2 Valve.  The fuel pump runs and makes good pressure, but there is a restriction between the fuel filter and the fuel rail.  That is why the fuel pressure regulator is getting checked out tomorrow, it is between the fuel filter and the fuel rail.

    Silly question, is there a filter between the pump and the engine?  


    There IS a filter between the fuel pump and the engine.  That was the first thing that was changed.

    Further testing shows 35psi idle & 40psi WOT between the fuel pump and the fuel filter, but only 23-25psi at the fuel rail.  I have already decided that it is getting a new fuel pressure regulator tomorrow.  It is raining here now, otherwise it would already be installed.

     Thank you!!

  6. My 2004 F250 has started running poorly, it will barely move under its own power.  I limped it to a local mechanic who diagnosed a bad fuel pump.  He replaced the fuel only to still have low fuel pressure.  A second replacement pump was installed on the chance that the first one was defective.  I have not been able to locate a “fuel pump driver module” on this particular truck.

    Does anybody have any suggestions?  Thank you!

    And, NEVER, EVER, push it beyond 1500 RPM.

    And IF you really want to make it "go fast", find a place where you can use your angle grinder on it, to make it easier to access the 'go fast' plug.

    Thanx, and a tip of the hat, to the 5-gallon bucket guy.

    Art, you have just won the Internet for today!!!!!

  8. That is an absolutely GORGEOUS SuperLiner!!!!!!

    Are you certain that it is a 1978?  The air tanks and hood suggest that it is a decade newer.  Is the steering box mounted to the frame rail, or the front axle?

    Having the pleasure of operating a number 12 with a pony I can definitely see that happening. I always make sure BOTH shift levers are in neutral before I even attempt to start the pony. If I don't remember checking I walk around just to make sure.

    Were those early Model 12s?

    The reason that I ask is because the Model 12 that we had was equipped with inside the cab starting controls.   Presumably this was a later model machine, but I cannot tell you what the serial number was and it is now gone.
