  1. Gas in a 6.3 litre diesel

    From a practical standpoint - you can’t reverse any damage that has been done. Many years ago I was driving on the I-80 turnpike & stopped at a BP station to fuel at one of the turnpike rest areas - I wasn’t paying attention & topped off one of my F350 7.3 IDI Dually fuel tanks with unleaded from a green handled pump. Immediately I had problems & realized what I had done - lucky there was no permanent damage. 60 miles is a different story ....... Jim

    Good news for those looking for an American made trailer tire .... Starting earlier this year Goodyear introduced an American Made ST Trailer Tire.@ I buy my at Discount Tire/America's Tire Store because they offer free replacement certificates that are not based on pro-rated tire tread I have been running them all year long on my triple axle 34 foot enclosed car hauler trailerJim

  4. Tow Vehicle-GMC 2500HD

    You start at the beginning. What is the loaded weight of the trailer you are pulling ? That is determined by the curb weight of the vehicle combined with the curb weight of the empty trailer you put it in. The sum of the two is your load. Your load determines your tow vehicle selection. Jim

  7. Deckover Trailer Ideas?

    I tow an enclosed trailer every day. Trailer manufacturers build what they can get the public to buy that is easy for them to put through an assembly line. Straight axles on the trailer raise the height roughly 4 inches over a standard 4 inch drop axle - if you just substitute this you can reduce the height of the wheel well inside the enclosed trailer by the same amount. The addition of the 4 inch angle iron will leave you with a flush floor and no fender wells. Trailer manufacturers do not want to do this because it changes the assembly line procedure so you will meet resistance. As I mentioned before, you have a higher deck which means a sharper angle for loading. But you also have more ground clearance & less chance of bottoming out on the back of the trailer. To each his own .... Jim
  8. Deckover Trailer Ideas?

    Straight axles instead of drop axles on your enclosed trailer mounted on 4 inch channel below the trailer frame will leave you with no fender wells. Your trailer will sit higher - better ground clearance. Higher deck means sharper angle - Race Ramps can take care of that. Jim

    Here is a sweet pair ..... The Model 95 Rampside is turbocharged direct fuel injected. I have a standing offer to buy it if he ever wants to sell it - the only vehicle I ever hauled that I offered to buy .... Jim

  12. 1930 Franklin Convertible **RESTORED** BEAUTIFUL

    The car is SOLD. If folks who had issues with the Franklin and did not to buy it because they did not like the car or did not have the money to buy it - they should refrain from letting their fingers do the talking on the forum unless they have actually seen the Franklin in person during the time it was for sale. I saw the car in person - I transported it - I have also hauled a lot of other classic cars over the years - it was a nice car. End Of Story. Jim
  13. 1930 Franklin Convertible **RESTORED** BEAUTIFUL

    I transported this 1930 Franklin. I met the dealer - we talked about cars - he seems like a good guy. The Franklin is a solid car and came with extras to boot. Jim
  14. Transporting non running car

    Thanks Guys ... Monday & Tuesday were kinda exciting .... I always try to check the weather ahead down the road. I was traveling I-77 south from Ohio where I dropped a 1925 Fordor off Sunday to Bruce in Stone Creek, OH traveling thru light rain. Things did not look good for Hickory, North Carolina .... So I got off the road early on Monday well north of the area. About 6:00 pm on Monday the building I was to deliver this 1930 Franklin to was hit - the roof was partially tore off but the cars inside (including a Marmon undergoing restoration) were not damaged. The alternative location I dropped off to yesterday - about (7) miles away - had downed power lines and uprooted trees less than a mile way. Jim
