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.
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!
How to not load a tractor
if your going to load a tractor, use a gooseneck flatbed. Highly
recommended. This was also taken with the worlds first video camera that
dates clear back to 1930s, when you had to upload videos by bringing it to
a store in an envelope on a film reel so they can process the film, redraw
it on about 3000 sheets of paper, and quickly flip through it so it looks
like a movie. Later on when color was invented, they used paint brushes to
add color, and they also added more paper so the video would be smoother.
As you can see here, the breed of the horse is a Ford. The Carriage is some
kind of thing, idk.
Pulling a 49 peterbilt out from its grave
Here is a 49 peterbilt that has a 280 cummins and mack rearends, and a 5+4
transmission. I said 270 cummins and SQHD rears but its got mack bogey
rears and a 280 cummins. We are helping a friend of ours restore this. We
pulled this out 2 weekends ago.
Old Peterbilt Cold Start
The Phantom starting The Ghost. 1975 Peterbilt 359 NT88 Cummins. 30 degrees
and hasn't been started for a month.
1972 Peterbilt 359M with Caterpillar 1693TA, Cold Start, Part 1
Starting the Legend on a beautiful fall day. By the way it starts you would
think it is 20 degrees outside. It was in the mid 60s this day. You have to
use the preheat glow plugs even when the temp is in the 70s. The system
works very well when used properly. I have started this truck in below zero
temps without being plugged in with no problem.
