It's interesting to see the repair on heavy trucks

I admittedly went on a Detroit rescue binge a few months ago.
It just catches on ether at 51:00 and again at 54:00 blows out some crap from the stack. Settles into a nice cold roll at 55:00

@racinbob Hmm, must be synced on the algorithm. Watched this gem yesterday! I suspect it went from AVE > Diesel Creek > Watch Wes Work.
As a kid I so wanted a deuce and a half soo bad. But now they look like such a pain in the ass to maintain.

@thebarber My buddy has a '44 Studebaker deuce and a half. He is/was a mechanic and his father was an air force mechanic in England during WW2. My friend bought it nicely restored and he took it to parades and stuff. I once rode with him to the steam days over in Mabel Minnesota.
Gas engine and It had a lot of momentum and liked about 45 mph. He let me drive it. I got about 1000' as double clutching at the next stop sign was not my thing.
He says the Studebakers are rare compared to the GMC's which you typically see in the movies. The GMC's have louvers in the side of the engine covers. The Studebakers did not, had a more rounded cab and I believe had windshields you could tilt open. He thought the Stude's were a better built truck. His dad worked on them but a lot of the Studebaker production went to Russia in the war. I always look at Stalin organs to see if they are Studebaker trucks.
