  1. 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!!

    436cu.in you make me Giggle

    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?

    Welp, just to keep life from getting too boring, lost the fan clutch bearing.

    So, took the fan off and made the load tonight without it.

    Made it better than I thought.

    Only two grades where I got up to 208 and 209°.

    It took some paying attention but kept it under 200° for the rest of the 400 miles.

    Had a good tail wind loaded which helped.

    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!!892D4303-A234-4197-8B59-278D4D851F93.thumb.jpeg.6273a7ddb2ac2e6470fd4251f3780f64.jpeg

    End of January the boss got fed up with the KW so said go find what YOU want to drive. 

    Lower roof matches the height of the fuel trailer. 

    550 horse CAT power and 18sp.

    '04 so no DEF or DPF

    I always loved the 379 styling. 

    It is the truck I have been trying to get them to buy since I started driving. 

    I slid into it like a favorite pair of slippers!


    Nice!!! Really nice they let you find what you wanted!!

  5. This is Gizmo, her mother quit feeding her litter at 5.5 weeks, and Giz was the last to almost perish.  A vet trip, and found out malnourished, so home with kitten milk replacer, a bottle, and starved 5.5 week old kitten!! And here she is 13 years later!! D3AE1285-F530-48A7-9817-6534F2417597.thumb.jpeg.bec37a74d970298e83052cf4a70be09d.jpeg 



    She finds herself in my lap the second I put “her” blanket over me!!

  7. I had this happen with a 666 a few years ago, it turned out to be a poorly machined hub of the damper pulley.  I tried 2-3 different seals thinking it was the seals, after the 3rd try, I got another new damper, and the inner hub of the 2nd new pulley was a lot smoother, and never leaked once on.

    Junkyard.   The china aftermarket doesn’t even look close to original. 

    I agree, try some salvage yards first!

    I have #32912. Nick Herbst. Rosebud Missouri. Had it since 2011 or so I believe. Thanks.

    I actually had your tractor listed from the previous owner.  So I updated the information to the serial number.  Nearest serial numbers I have to yours so far are, 32888 located in MN, and 32969 was sold on auction in IN.  Thank you again!
