  1. I’d love to have an M&W oil pan, but not for these prices!! 😳😳😳 Sad thing is, we had a very rough 1456 years ago, it had an M&W pan, but we weren’t smart enough to keep that pan when the tractor sold, just figured another one would show up. 😢
  2. Wow!! There are some dang nice old Peterbilts out in California!!! @Tonyinca and @DirtBoyz07, thank you for the pictures!! That looks like an amazing show, and show worth coming to California for!!!
  3. I used A&I with no issues on the first rebuild, the second rebuild I got the bad part, and then my parts guy went to Ag Parts, and finished the second rebuild. I’ll have to try Hy Cap on the next one.
  4. They think it’s a 1 fits all world! Well that’s not the case! 3 years ago I was going through the shifting rebuild process on a 1066, 1 main piece was wrong, splines were welded incorrectly, or the roll pin hole was drilled wrong?! Which ever of the 2 was wrong, it didn’t work, period!! Took the parts back to the dealer, parts guy saw the issue, got me another part coming, sent the one I had back, 2 days later, same thing wrong with the next new one. He called the supplier, they knew they had a problem, but until that run of bad parts were sold, they didn’t know when I would see the correct part?? Mmmm, why not pull all the bad parts, and scrap them, and make them right, your not going to sell parts that don’t work!! So ended up going through another aftermarket company! Their parts were right, and better!
  5. X2 Impacts are nice tools, but usually you need to break them loose with a breaker bar first.
  6. It’s supposed to rain and storm overnight, so if it’s not a muddy mess, it may become that tomorrow??
  7. IH part numbers are, seal is 377788R91, cup is ST856, cone is ST761A
  8. Nothing aftermarket really matches original! But your right with this one, it looks like it’s machined to small of a taper, or to short.
  9. I’d like to see pictures of these setups!
  10. I’ll try grab a picture today, of the one we made for the 5488. It’s a pinch type, around the support bar by the windshield
  11. The 100 pound weights were anything from $198-$225 per weight!!!! And the 70 pound weights were $110?!?! That’s totally backwards compared to the upper Midwest!
  12. He is Risen Indeed!!
  13. I haven’t followed this build to closely, but WOW!!! That truck is absolutely beautiful!!! I can see why you are hesitant on using it too much!! You have an amazing eye for detail Tony!!! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
  14. Must be from Australia? Pictures upside down! 🤣🤣 Nice looking setup!!
  15. Weights and bracket were a steal in my book!! The bracket alone in my area is $200, that puts the weights at $36 a piece!!
  16. I just use a drill pump, pulling oil out of the oil pan, feeding it into an oil galley. Did that with a tractor that sat for a few years, and the 706W after the engine was put back together. You’ll know it’s working on a 66-88 by flicking the oil filters as you are using the drill pump, you’ll go from an empty tinny sound to the full, thump sound. I can take a picture of my setup if you want a reference.
  17. Everyone thinks it’s 600 ci, and has water injection. Nope, just an SRC 436 reman with a 13mm pump, with a pressure feed pump, and a balanced 3LM turbo. It took us years to figure out that it needs 1000-1200 pounds hanging on the front to pull good!
  18. Good time to check it all over, and fix what needs fixing!! Going to paint it while everything is getting refreshed?
  19. Front axle pivot holes worn out? I was going to buy a square axle for our 5488 a few years ago, but it needed work, and after talking with Mike Links, said every one he gets, needs work!
  20. Dave is a super nice guy, and this is sad, but I think he was ready to quit. The last order I placed with Dave 2-3 years ago, he said then, that he was nearing his end, and I was sad to hear that, but understood. So the fact he made it another 2-3 years is great! And it’s really great to know Mr. Links is taking over that line!!
  21. I bid on a few items as well, missed the black stripe cab by a little, I thought about pushing the belly tank, but I knew it was a $3000 item, and I didn’t feel like spending that much!!
  22. And everyone that thinks that engine is so big makes us laugh our a$$es off!! That engine is an SRC reman from back in, 1996 I believe, it’s a stamped 467 block, over stamped by SRC 436. That’s 436 cubes, I’ll put $100,000 on that if anyone wants to come open it up and measure, it’s here! I don’t know when it will be out again?
  23. My dad has pulled 7 18’s with his 1566 before, and we aren’t very heavy ground, I’m not sure if another bottom would have been easy for it?! The way it’s setup now it could probably pull a 10 bottom, but would need water injection to keep it cool!!
  24. Finding all the weak parts in a new truck is fun, isn’t it?! My truck is getting to the point of anything is possible to fail, at any given moment!!! 1,320,000 on it, and I haven’t had to do any major components yet?! 🤞🏻🤞🏻 All the years of salty highways is now starting to take its toll, some brackets under the sleeper are starting to get bad, so looks like some body work is in order for me!!
