  1. It was awsome pulling with the tractor vs. the truck. Do you still have space at the WCR?????
  2. O.K. I have had my semi for just over two years now but I have never hooked up and pulled my trailer before. I pulled it for the first time last night. My trailer is a small one, under 25 feet bumper pull. I don't have direct link hooked up yet so I don't even have brakes yet. Now, when I hook it up to my 1/2 ton Tundra, I know it is back there, I can feel it, I can see it on the engine RPM's. On the semi there wasn't even a blip on the radar. I couldn't feel it, it didn't set my back end down and I didn't even notice any difference in stopping, it was awsome. Yes I am getting my direct link hooked up, but Oh Man what a difference. I drove about 10 miles round trip out to the Petro at the Race track and back to the house. I parked between two new 860's little nervous. I got gas also. I got a lot of funny looks from other truckers, then I explained what I was doing and why, they just nodded in agreement. Nobody asked me if I thought I had enough truck. In short I loved it! If you go on Face book HDT you can see my pictures of it. Later, Vegas Teacher - Cory Ossana - Happy Friday
  3. Do you guys still use a penetrating oil first?
  4. Thanks I knew it had to be something simple but I didn't know what it was.
  5. Hey the new Raney's truck catalog is out. I got mine last night along with my new Harbor Frieght spring catalog. I was flipping througy Raney's and came across something that was called a head ache rack, what do truckers use this for? I know I don't need one but I was just currious and currious about how it got the name? Have a great weekend! Later, Vegas Teacher
  6. How does the multiplier work? I have looked at these and often wondered. Do you hook the back side up to a drill or socket wrench? Does it make it easier to take off stuff? Later, Cory O
  7. Does Milwakee make a good product? I only have Ridgid tools at home.
  8. I did not know Pawn shops sold tools. I thought they were all jewelry and stuff like that. Thanks for the information. I have never been in a pawn shop before.
  9. I want to love harbor freight and for some things they are great. I keep looking at the bench top belt sander, wheel sander combo, but I just can't bring myself to buy it. Same with their air compressor, the price is great but I bought the 8 gallon for my dad, at Christmas 2 years ago, it died in 6 months. We made sure it had oil and everything, just quit, motor wouldn't even turn on. I pulled the air plug, emptied the tank, called harbor dud what they said just dead. I feel your pain. What brand of impact did you buy from them?

    New impact

    I just got an email milwakee cordless 1 inch with 1800 foot pounds of loosening power. It uses the new battery too.
  12. I forgot you can also type in the ratio you want. Sorry lots of kids in the room.
  13. O.K. we all remember Algebra, High School Chemistry and Physics and we remember the teachers we had teaching us this formula C1V1 = C2V2 then we practiced and have used it out entire lives for figuring out how to make out mixes and out ratios for 2 cycle / gas mixes. We all did the homework problems and took tests using this formula and know it backwards and forwards. Today playing on the computer I found this handy litle website to make it easy: http://www.blueheronwings.com/bh/comps/FuelMix.php There is both a chart and a place where you type in an exact amount of gas and it spits out the amount of oil needed in both English and Metric units. I figure there are still a few of us using 2 cycle weed eaters and blowers out there who might like having this tool. I found a free app for my cell phone too. Later, Cory O

    That is why I like the facebook page for the HDT site better, posting pictures is never a problem, just post and go! But then again I am part of the younger generation on this website LOL! I am only 47.
