This is our free 1966 Peterbilt starting up cold that has a big cam 1 400 cummins. The pump is timed at 80 so it shakes and rattles and lopes until it's warmed up. It's getting 6" quiet spool straight pipes very shortly. I'll see about taking the mufflers off this weekend.
Free 66 Peterbilt Cummins piston rattle
Some guy that drove this thing before we got it forgot to turn the fan on.
Pistons tend to stick to the cylinder walls with high heat. This is a big
cam 1 400 cummins timed at 80* on the pump.
85 Peterbilt cold start after 2 years
This was a friend of ours truck that passed away last year due to cancer.
(RIP!) It's now ours and we might have to pull the big cam 3 out of it if
the 66 Peterbilt has more problems then we think.
Our free 1966 Peterbilt 351!
This is our 2nd own truck we got for free. The reason it's free is because
someone forgot to turn the fan on while climbing a hill, so we need to put
a new piston and liner in the big cam 400. It has a RTO-9513 13 speed
transmission and a Big Cam 4 400. It's a Johnny Cash special, one piece at
a time. It has a corvette dash cab, around a 74 narrow fiberglass hood, 93
International air ride suspension and Eaton rears, but the frame rails are
still from 1966!
Old Peterbilt Cold Start
The Phantom starting The Ghost. 1975 Peterbilt 359 NT88 Cummins. 30 degrees
and hasn't been started for a month.
1955 Kenworth 523 Bullnose
Here's a video I made for my buddy Mr David since he is selling the truck.
This is the final run in the backwoods of Louisiana before the truck gets
picked up. He still has a knack for the two sticks even after his recent
brain surgery a little over 5 months ago.
Mack truck After 30 years of sitting......
This old mack truck has been sitting for around 30 years with some jumper
cables and starting fluid she starts runs and builds air! It was my Dads
and he parked it sometime around when I was born. A diesel mechanic and
friend offered to buy it and I thought it would be more noble than sending
it to the scrap yard. I'm a little jealous that it started so easy!
59' Hayes first start in 10yrs
This is my 59' Hayes Clipper 220 Cummins first start in 10 plus years. Put
a couple batteries in it and she whirled right over and fired.
Shifting my Pete 358 twin stick. [HD]
Jammin Gears in my 358 Pete, hauling sand to a road building project.
I'm not a pro truck driver. I just bought this dump truck to haul some
material around on my ranch. I edited out everything but the shifting.

Driving the 1949 peterbilt down the road
We just pulled this thing after it sat for a good while and just drove it
to a friends house. Dad was following me and our friend steve and he
clocked us going 42 mph. That's the fastest it will go with mack rear ends
and a direct 5 speed eaton main box. LOL. It has a 280 cummins, 5+4
transmission and mack rear ends.
Pulling a 49 peterbilt out from its grave

pulled this out 2 weekends ago.
