    young guys, some tweaker white and mexican guys.

    Haven't had any time to mess with it.

    They are in every industry. Especially the race car world.

    Low boy conversion on a brand new KW T800. They brought me a Murray kit. It was a ok kit, but I didn't think the pieces fit all that great. Had to massage them a little

    200' of 6" x 6" x .250"wall box tube for bumper rails on a above ground scale I finished on Tuesday. Each rail is 70' long. The legs were 38" tall and 20" bottom leg.That was a lot of welding.

    Can you say the name of the customers with the new truck and the scale?

    Also I heard they were fixing the road in to Fordyce. I have to work on Signal Peak sometimes and wondere if the road up to the turnoff was any better. Used to take 1 hour to go the 7 miles from I-80 to the peak.

    excuse me for my ignorance but, what is a "Murray kit" ,that was in your previous post and, could you please elaborate further on the installation. I think I know what it's supposed to do, and am curious about it. I've never seen that set up before.
    Thank you!

    That part looks slick but the whole process is pretty time consuming

    Drive out from under trailer
    Unpin neck and hoses and connector
    Back under neck (loose at this point)
    Drive away with neck
    Load or unload machine
    Back up with neck
    Hook up neck and hoses and connector
    Drive out from under
    Hook links up
    Ram truck back under neck and connect

    This way you need no wet kit or small engine to give out on you at the worst moment and saves weight I guess. It is most common out here in the west.

    Hey Fishmouth,I was looking through my subscriptions on PBB and realized you were the one building the mid-engine yota on rockwells. Still one of my favorite threads in the toyota section.

    Remember you can get it fixed cheap, fast or right. Pick two.
