GG2,
There must be four Brockways at the Expo unless someone took off with mine. It was sitting next to Paul's yesterday when I left there at 4PM. Be back in the morning. Hope to see you there.

good deal. does she use any oil??? or leak any water? 50 hrs is about the time the motor decided to let loose of some water into the pan.

i ran her hard, it is using a little oil but that could be from the rocker box leaking when i have the jakes on all 3. brought the truck back from our show here in batavia today and looked at the dipstick and didnt see any signs of water in oil. when i first put engine in truck it did leak some into pan but once it was run and got good and warm that went away. lost my head lites today , will have to put a new switch in and replace the new one i just put in. since we just had all this rain i will go over and run a trailer this week too. need to permit the truck so i can haul some weight, the truck and trailer weigh in at 35,000 . my one weight ticket was 86,640 and couldnt tell it was back there.
