    Okay got the picture thing figured out so here's my newest update not much but still something. Should have this truck done in time as my mustang is in the box to figure out what to do with it since I screwed up the nose area on it. So the mini Driptroit 8V71 arrived with the fuller lone roadranger transmission hehehehehe. Also got a can of Driptroit alpine green from Napa for the engine which will be decanted and sprayed thru my pasche airbrush. Engine/trans by itself then tested in the frame yes i do have suspension for this truck just taking time as it's multi piece. Still working on the rear axles for mini freightshaker.

Test fit in the frame right out of the packages needing 0 cleanup. So mini freightshaker shaker is back more progress soon also bought a can of Driptroit Alpine green from Napa can always rely on them to have what I need paint wise. Mini Stang is dead until I can figure how to fix my screw up. Enjoy till next time.

    Clayton Doubles can have single Axles & or Tandem rear trailer axles depending on their use, also if it's a 28' or 32' trailer. Now the dolly tounges can get quite confusing, Clayton i've pulled 4' tounge dollies but not into Canada. Canada we had to have a dolly with a sliding tongue like a log trailer before we crossed the Canadian border. We by Canadian law had to stretch the tongue out to 10 feet to meet their bridge laws. But coming back into the US we had to shorten the dolly tongue back to the 4'-6' dolly length for US bridge laws and overall length. Very confusing but effective.

    Wow Herman just keeps getting better and better.
  7. B,P b train

    Okay back up here a second partially my bad. A train 2 flatbed trailers with a dolly. Per dot i looked this up under their interpretations Doubles/triples 2 or 3 trailers with dollies not flatbed. B train flatbed trailers attached via a fifth wheel mounted to the lead trailer and or following trailers to make a larger aka Australian road train. Your tanker model falls into a doubles combo set because of the dolly. I've driven triples in Oregon, Idaho, Utah. Triples will earn your respect in a hurry 1/8th to 1/4 inch on the steering wheel equates to 2-2.5 feet of lane sway on the last trailers rear axle works great on tailgaters we call it cracking the whip. Lol. Drove triples with an IH 9600 Cat 9 speed those were the day's.
  8. B,P b train

    If that's a dolly under the front of the 2nd trailer that set is an A train. Hauled both A & B trains load limit here in Washington State, BC, Oregon is 105,500. Drove sets of drybulk cement sets in A/B configurations. Also A/B sets of lumber flats hauling Canadian Cedar from BC to Oregon then Oregon wood to Washington then Washington wood to BC.

    Bad mojo mini Stang is going from street boss to racing Stang went to add the headlight bezels. They ended up being to big measure twice cut once didn't take my own advice got a setback out of it. Uuuuuuuuugh back to the drawing board.

    Little bit of progress on mini Stang got the primary interior coat of aircraft interior black shot. Found another set of rubber for the cragars that give the car that 70's period big-n-little look. Let me know what you think. And the freightliner is being held up due to postal service hope the rest of the part's I need get here that way I can get 2 of the many done. Anyways here's the big-n-little test shot of mini Stang.

    That front bolt and nut are used to adjust the locking jaws of the fifth wheel. My 2005 W900 had that allowed the jaws to be adjusted on it to prevent trailer king pin slop that will beat up a fifth wheel. Hope that helps Herman.
