  1. Can someone I.D this truck?

    wow! a blast from the past. my dad hauled a lot of beer out of that brewery back in the early 70s. some times in the summer I would ride with him...that brewery and I think it was piels real draft in the Bronx also we would go...back then you would still see some of them old white 3000s running around the city.

  6. mack DM600

    I see some members building these on here so I thought I would throw some pics up in case someone needs a reference pic.i remember building this kit back in the day and one of the most confusing things about this kit for me was how the interior engine cover mounted so I included a pic of that as well just in case someone else has the same problem. we still run a couple of them in our fleet .they used to be cement mixers then were converted into water trucks. if anymore pics are needed of a certain part just let me know.

  11. Speaking of Detroit's

    back in '89 I drove a international 4200 with a 318 DD/ 10spd. hauling steel coils with it out of US steel in fearless hills pa. I remember the owner of the truck always telling me to keep it wound up tight and run it like your mad at it. she would use about a gallon of oil every 4 days. I always thought because they were 2 stroke engines that they were just vibrating parts on the engine loose. I also remember the air compressor leaked a lot of oil on that truck. but I think Sam is right a 2 stroke engine would build up a lot of crankcase pressure and that would definitely cause leaks.
  12. While On The Road...What Are These?

    let me see if I could remember, just a bear was a local or county cop. and a full grown bear was a state trooper. a kojak with a Kodak was a bear with radar. if we were check'n out seat covers we were looking at the pretty girls passing us. buster brown was a ups truck, wow clayton your bringing back a lot of memories!.. keep the shinny side up and the greasy side down 3's to ya we gone!
  13. Happy Holidays

    thanks gator. same to you and everyone here!
  14. While On The Road...What Are These?

    Hello Michael. I too still use the cb when I'm in my big truck, like clayton said it's mostly to communicate with the asphalt plants or the loaders down in the quarries or if I'm on the lowbed to find out where they want their machines. as far as finding out where the troopers are. well the CDL put an end to my hammer down days. and the last 17 years I've been getting paid by the hour so when I'm in the big truck I'm not looking to go very fast anyways LOL! but back in the day when I was traveling in my 4 wheeler or on the 2 wheeler. I would always try to run with the greyhound stagecoaches. they were always hammer down and always seemed to know where the speed traps were.. I still always get the mile marker # where the picture taker or the speed trap is so I could warn others. I do miss the cool handles we had and the crazy cb lingo we used.
  15. I saw this ol' pete sitt'in in a yard next to a job site I was delivering a piece of equipment to just the other day. she's not back on the road yet, but she sure is in restorable condition. I struck up a conversation with the owner. he told me his dad bought it as a new glider kit back in 1978. now the pete has a 650hp 1693ta in it and the truck is for sale. i didn't bother to ask how much because i don't have a garage big enough for it. i wish i did!
