    It was mindless boring work, went for 3 shifts, 7 days.

    The "obstacles" were all manufactured, had the obtuse angle bermed rail crossing to induce max chassis-twist, some "potholes" made out of...

    That's a Motown Exit and has been going on here long before it got popular there. ;)

    It could be done, yes, but the trailer would be easier.

    I towed a GN trailer west of Chicago to pick up a...

    Great detail!

    One question, my eyeball says the worms aren't the same pitch....but calibration of my glasses could be off :) and/or perspective or camera angle.

    What is up with all of those rods going thru the cross-slide? Is there power to the compound?

    Mine does not look like that!

    Some pictures would help immensely. Also helpful would be the amount of wear are we talking about? .010? More?

    Does it use a neutral in the cord-set?

    I would expect 240vac/480vac on all combinations of phase-to-phase.

    Seems odd that it would be wired with a neutral, because then it couldn't be used on...

    This is off-topic but is that the -BCS Box Car eSpecial? Looks like it has the high-stacked counterweight.

    The 4.3L has more width due to the "V" configuration. The old 250-6 (line 6) has tons...

    I think I counted 3 posts in 4 pages about insulation....which works with both heat and A/C.

    One of the pesky things about heating air is that its slippery and likes to escape thru tiny gaps.

    I have a question about how the girder-box is welded.

    I see in the first pic the "vertical ribs" could be welded to the top and bottom and one of the side-skins.

    But when that last side-skin is...

    Once you find the reason for "melted", I would look for an interlock switch.

    Its not like a forklift can't handle it, but getting it on the foundation/pads is another issue that the overhead rigging doesn't have.

    My Clark forklift had a shuttle valve which put the transmission in neutral when the pressure rose in the brake system. Sort of an elaborate Tee in the plumbing.

    That's my decision right there. If a single timer is required then you might as well go the PLC route.

    There are old school mechanical leakdown timing relays but why bother?

    Imo, finest that I've used is the Coffing LSB series. Easiest and fastest to use with the F-N-R lever and the freewheel mode to rapidly takeup slack chain either direction.
