Mackjack525's exhaust note challenge

Mackjack525's Exhaust note challenge. The truck was due for new injectors, that's why I haven't shown this before. Too much black smoke. Truck grossing about 80 tons or 179,000 lbs. Power by Cat 3408. Check out Mackjack525's challenge on video responses.

Like big V8s? Watch this!
View from the cab of my Kenworth going from Melbourne Victoria to Karratha WA with 46 tonnes of re-bar. Gross train weight 77 tonnes on two 45' trailers. My brother's son came with me on this 11,000 km round trip during the school holidays and was the camera man. First clip is the roundabout at Hay NSW. Second clip going through the S - bends at Gladstone SA on the new road train route. Third clip the Heysen Tunnels in the Adelaide hills. We came through the hills in the daytime so we didn't get to see any of the smic - looking interstate trucks which come out at night. Fourth clip the stacked up roadtrain Coolgardie WA. Power of course is Caterpillar's 3408 18 liter V8. Dyno'd at 550 HP at the wheels, equates to about 600 HP at the flywheel. 16 speed Spicer trans.

The truck's on fire !
The truck's on fire ! No, not mine. One of Ruttley's B-Doubles had a wheel bearing catch fire on a brand new Western Star. The story I got is that they managed to seperate the truck from the two trailers but everything went up anyway. There were two drivers and they lost all their gear in the fire. This was almost exactly half way between W.A. Border and Nullarbor Road House. There's no water out here. Nearest fire station is Ceduna over 400 kms away. This happened in South Australia but the W.A. border was only 60 kms away so the Western Australian state police came out as one lane was blocked and the fire burned all night. I had unloaded down the road and when I rocked up the recovery guys wanted to use my road-train dolly to move the B trailer to the next parking bay as all the axles were burned. The small fires left on the trailers must have been burning for 30 hours but they didn't want to go out. It looks mad towing the trailers still burning but don't worry, we knew what we were doing. It was impossible to completely put the fires out so they were just going to let them burn out by themselves then take them to Adelaide about 1200 kms away, which is the closest large city. We're in the middle of nowhere here, look at the map and Google Earth in "Statistics and Data". Only communication at that point is by satellite phone.

Transfer-Dump Race: The Complete Run
Mark Tarascou and his Pete 359 is seen participating in a transfer-dump competiton at the 2011 Truckin' For Kids Truck Show. Although there were a few glitches, it was still a good show. For those not familiar with dump trucks like these, they are set up with a system that allows the driver to back the truck up while they are standing behind it to make attaching the towbar easier. The driver puts the truck in reverse gear and shuts the engine off. At the rear is a switch or a button that is used to engage the starter motor on the engine without starting the truck. Since the transmission is in reverse, as the starter motor turns the engine it also turns the driveline and backs the truck up. I'm not a trucker so I don't know what this system or technique is called, but that is how it works. Thanks for watching. Please rate and share this video with your friends. Shot on 9-25-11.

How to shift a Spicer 16 speed
How to use a Spicer ProShift transmission in my Kenworth . It is a 16 speed with overdrive. The 16 speed is similar to the 14 speed which is much more common, except the air-shift pattern is different. The first 3 gears in the main box ( controlled with the gearstick ) each have 4 gears on the air shift ( the blue control on the gearstick ). This gives 12 gears. The top 2 gears on the stick you only use 2 airshift positions , like on a 13 or 18 speed RoadRanger , so this gives 16 gears in total. A compound shift is changing gears with the air-shift and main gearbox at the same time. You don't need to use the clutch except when starting and when using the airshift in 1st gear in the main box. All this info is easy for truck drivers who can operate a Road Ranger , which is the most common transmission in Australia. But it is a harder box to use than a Road Ranger.





MAN HydroDrive
Zuschaltbarer hydrostatischer Vorderradantrieb für mehr Flexibilität bei niedrigem Verbrauch und hoher Nutzlast. Mithilfe des zuschaltbaren Vorderradantriebs MAN HydroDrive können Fahrsituationen und Einsatzbedingungen gemeistert werden, die Fahrzeuge mit reinem Hinterradantrieb nicht bewältigen könnten und somit zusätzlich Zeit und Geld kosten würden. Herzstück der hydrostatisch angetriebenen Motoren ist ein mit der Radnabe fest verbundener Zylinderblock mit acht sternförmig angeordneten Zylindern. In den Zylindern befinden sich spezielle Kolben; auf dem jeweiligen Kolbenboden sind drehbare Rollen angebracht. Diese Rollen stehen im Kontakt mit der wellenförmigen Kontur eines außen umlaufenden Nockenringes. Wird nun der MAN HydroDrive eingeschaltet, setzt eine am Getriebeausgang angeflanschte Pumpe die Radnabenmotoren mit bis zu 420 bar unter Druck. Diese werden dadurch in Drehung versetzt, dass immer abwechselnd nur bestimmte Zylinder mit Druck beaufschlagt werden, während gleichzeitig bei anderen Zylindern das Öl abfließen kann. Bei den unter Druck stehenden Zylindern wird der Kolben nach außen gepresst, die Rollen stützen sich am Nockenring ab und es entsteht ein Drehmoment. In traktionskritischen Situationen genügt ein Dreh am Sperrenschalter, um die Weiterfahrt zu ermöglichen und Verspätungen und zusätzliche Kosten zu vermeiden. Das heißt, mehr Terminsicherheit und höhere Effizienz. Mit MAN HydroDrive ausgerüstete Fahrzeuge sind flexibel einsetzbar, da sie sowohl auf der Strasse als auch in unbefestigtem Terrain effizient unterwegs sind: Trotz des erweiterten Einsatzspektrums sind Nutzlast und Kraftstoffverbrauch auf dem Niveau eines Fahrzeugs mit reinem Hinterradantrieb. Gegenüber einem Fahrzeug mit konventioneller Allradtechnik ergibt sich eine Gewichtseinsparung von etwa 400 kg. Den MAN HydroDrive gibt es vom 2- bis zum 4-Achser für viele verschiedene Fahrzeugtypen verfügbar

1955 Peterbilt 350 Cab Over
This beautiful '55 Pete 350 cab over was being shown by Hofstee Farms at the 2010 Truckin' For Kids Truck Show. Here the fenders are opened showing how parts of the engine can be accessed from the sides. I don't know if the cabs on these can tilt forward or not, but it is obvious that the front area around the grill can be lifted up too. Of the 200 plus trucks at the show this year, this was easliy in my top 3 favorites. I really love the shapes of it. I wish it were mine. 10-23-10.





There's A Right Way...And Then There's This Way
*WATCH IN HD* Bad decision? Yes. Lucky? HELL YES! Lucky they only lost a fuel tank and some straps instead of the whole truck. Had the truck not gotten hung-up on it's tank, it would've continued right on over the edge of the trailer and been wrecked. Also lucky the tank was almost empty and diesel fuel is hard to ignite, for if it had, it would've consumed both the truck and half the trailer. This 1971 White/Freightliner will live to race another day. Shot at Truckin' For Kids in Irwindale, California on Sunday October 6th, 2013. To see what led up to this, checkout my other video -- Loading The Ole Freightliner - The Hard Way.
