    Cam hook truss setter

    A framer without a belt is worthless. They need to get that kid tuned up. He should at least have a hammer for splitting trusses and breaking bands I don't have any close ups of my hooks, but they're just regular grab hooks. No spring latch. They have wide square backsides where the clevis is...

    Cam hook truss setter

    Looks interesting. I'd be afraid of snagging the release cord on something. Might be better to put a small loop on the release and use a hook on a painters pole, or a nail in a 2x4 in a pinch. See what doofus figures out once you get them. Something about monkeys and footballs... Do you have a...

    Overload of the Day

    They're not missing. Two of them sitting right in front of it :D Still. The guy is doing it backwards. I know which of the two trucks I'd rather drive

    Memories for us old truckers

    hangar collapse

    Of course they had an idea of the wind load. Same seat of the pants we all use. Sometimes it doesn't work out. I've lost one set of trusses in my career. Happened at night and nobody was hurt. Freak windstorm with 60+ mph winds. Didn't just pull all the braces on the gable, it snapped 2x4s and...

    USDOT # and IFTA for non commercial use?

    If you read the general applicability it only applies to interstate: So they define a CMV as interstate and intrastate but the regs only apply to interstate. Because the feds can only dictate what happens between states, not what goes on inside of them (in this instance) When you use a CMV...

    BCIII Cummins Rebuild.

    Right on. Well, it's here if you want a spare I found the boring tool at an auction place. Looked like .gov surplus. Metal box with an NSN on it. Had never been used, parts still in wax. Not sure what else it does, there are all sorts of adapters with it. It was cheaper to buy that and rebuild...

    BCIII Cummins Rebuild.

    Let me know. I need to go through all my stuff left over from the build. Lots of stuff I hope to never need again. Have the boring tool for oil pump bushings

    BCIII Cummins Rebuild.

    It was Mobile Fleet Service at the time. Now Bruckner’s They were hesitant to pull it at first but ended up pretty easy to deal with. I did have to drive up there from Tacoma just to point out that the power steering lines were backwards. They couldn’t get it to move after putting it back in...

    BCIII Cummins Rebuild.

    I have one if you need it It was $45 off fleabay when I bought it. The shop that pulled my engine in Ellensburg didn't have them and I was scrambling to get the engine out. They ended up borrowing some from another shop and not using this one My buddy that worked for Cummins said they would...

    BCIII Cummins Rebuild.

    Not throwing mud at all. You didn't write the manual, even if you did it was an honest question I didn't understand the math when it read it in the manual the first time. Neither did my friend that was a cummins mechanic So what's the typo? What should the TIR be with those measurements? I...

    It still doesn't make sense to me How do they combine 0.0, +0.08, -0.05, +0.08 to get 0.13 TIR?

    Glue to put plastic windows back in?

    Double sided tape might be an option depending on how wide the bonding surface is https://www.homedepot.com/p/Scotch-1-in-x-1-66-yds-Permanent-Double-Sided-Extreme-Mounting-Tape-414DC-SF/203405976

    Connector for a Hyster Forklift tail light

    It would be a lot less expensive and you'll end up with a better connection if you buy the connector parts in stead of a complete pigtail Deutsch is owned by TE Connectivity, that looks like a DTM connector https://www.ebay.com/itm/265134038840
