    I wouldn't have thought a regular old cross universal joint would be in there. Keeps it simple I guess.

    Quality of build and condition are factors for me.

    I think it's less that Haas would sue and more that Haas users are mostly reliant on mother Haas to take care of them.

    Maybe the chatter and off-center hole make it better?

    Yeah, and he's using 304 stainless tubing. You only have to be as accurate as that tubing is straight.

    If I need more than 42 gallons I think I'll have to go to 2 tanks connected with a big hose/tube. Maybe start with 42 and add a second tank if it's not enough.

    It has twin augers that bring chips...

    2 axis CNC lathe would do just peachy from what I can tell. If you think you have to mill them buy a CNC lathe with live toys or put an electric or air spindle or a router, whatever, in the turret.

    That's way too much weight for an 8.3. Who spec'd that truck??? an 8.3 has around 600 lb/ft @ 1500. That's very slow going in a 30K lb rig.

    435 DD makes 1550 Lb/FT @ 1200 RPM.

    How do I size a coolant sump?

    Drawing up a new sump to fit a modern conveyor and multistage pump to my old 300mm HMC.

    3/4HP pump feeding 4 @ 1/4" ID nozzles.

    Pump nameplate says 22 GPM @ 73 ft head

    What else factors in?

    How much does it weigh? I have driven a pumper with a 3208/MT41 weighing 18k empty. No thank you sir.

    How does your response have a speck of relevancy?

    My point is you are looking in the wrong place, wasting your time and you won't get any useful answers to your questions.

    If you knew more about what you were asking you'd realize just how stupid your questions are.

    Non-hobby professional for profit businesses don't build a lathe from scratch unless this was 1865.

    1160/3208 don't have a great reputation. They don't like sustained load under turbo boost.

    A few years ago I started putting my mental well being way ahead of walk in customer's needs. I just made a conscious decision to say no a lot more often and I don't regret it a bit.

    I think the primary success driver in the diesel engine industry is whether or not the engine is designed in partnership with Bosch. The Germans seem to know how to make a fuel system that works.
