    MODIDIFY ENGINE IN AMT 866 CALIFORNIA HAULER
     Has anyone modified the 871 DETROIT in the model kit to a 871t ?   It would be really nice building the kit with with a larger turbocharged engine in it.   I was just curious to find out if the engine would fit ok with the turbo and other modifications.

       It takes me along time to complete a model.  I have semi truck tractors in the building stage right now and have been working on them both for about 2 years.  I would like to complete them faster but during the summer time I get involved in  many repair prodjects etc. around the house and barely even touch them at all. I can't wait for wintertime so I can get back to building again. I also have 2 other semi truck models all planned out with all the paint etc. already purchaced for them and a lot of photos and notes completed for all the detailing and modifications that I will be doing on them but I won't start building them untill I have the builds in progress completed.

      A couple of years ago I built one of the AMT PETE wreckers and I found some information out about the wrecker and wrecker body on "TIMS TRUCKS" website.  He has a little bit of info about them and some photos of the AMT wreckers that he had built.  I looked and the photos etc. are still on his site.  Tim says that the wrecker is a HEINZ Big Stick Wrecker and the wrecker body was made by "SOUTH UNION BODY WORKS",  If you search around a bit through his website you will find it. (I put the wrecker unit on and AMT R 600 MACK)  JARRNO88

     I JUST WANTED TO LET EVERYONE KNOW THAT I STRAGHTENED OUT THE PROBLEM WITH THE REVELL SNAP KIT FENDERS FOULING OUT AGAINST THE FRONT BUMPER ON MY AMT PETERBILT 359.  I REALLY LIKE ALL THE DETAIL THAT THE REVELL FENDERS HAVE AND I DID NOT WANT REMAKE THE HOOD HINGES SO I SET THE HOOD UP TO LIFT OFF AND ON.  I JUST CUT A NOTCH ON TOP OF THE CAVITY WHERE THE HOOD HINGE PINS GO INTO SO THE HOOD CAN BE LIFTED OFF AND ON.  I FIGURED I THAT I WOULD NEVER BE DISPLAYING THE MODEL WITH THE HOOD TILTED OPEN VERY MUCH  SO  THE DETAIL ON THE THE FENDERS ETC. WAS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE HOOD TILTING.  JARRNO88

    I built A 1/25 PETE wrecker a couple of years ago and used BUTTON & CARPET thread. I purchaced it at A JOANNE FABRICS store and they had rolls of it in a number of different colors and it looks pretty much to scale for a 1/25 wrecker.

  12. JARRNO88 added a post in a topic Luberfiner hoses, where do they go   

    Hi Clayton,
    I asked the same question a while back and here is the information that I printed out the same as it was given to me.
    Luberfiners are bypass oil filters. The inlet hose is connected to a pressure point on the engine (usually on the oil filter mount)
    and the return hose is connected to the crankcase ( usually the side of the engine block just above the oil pan rail ) These
    connections would be pretty much the same regardless of the engine brand. As for the Luberfiner itself, the center hose is the
    return hose and the hose that is off center is the inlet. ( A Luberfiner can be mounted any direction but must be serviceable)
    I hope this helps you out, Keith

    EGR MANIFOLD HOOKUP ON MOEBIUS MAXFORCE 15 ENGINE
    DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE THE 2 SMALL LINES THAT ARE MOLDED INTO THE SURFACE OF THE EGR MANIFOLD ON THE MOEBIUS MAXXFORCE 15 ENGINE ARE SUPPOSED TO RUN TO ?
    I HAVE SEARCHED AROUND ON THE WEB LOOKING AT A BUNCH OF MAXXFORCE 15 PHOTOS , BUT I HAVE NOT FOUND A PHOTO THAT GIVES A CLEAR VIEW OF WHERE TE LINES RUN TO BECAUSE IN EVERY PHOTO THE VIEW IS BLOCKED OFF BY THE TURBO'S.
    THANKS, KEITH
