    Is 85db Loud for a Truck Cab?

    I think fan noise is a component of the noise in there, along with tire noise, and all the racket goes with 4.88 gears. I have carpet (with a Dynamat & Dynaliner substrate) and a fabric-covered seat, but an upholstered headliner could really help. Also, some sort of upholstery added to the steel...

    How Much Play is Too Much in a Pinion Bearing?

    Thank you for the help. I know what I wrote, and I know I was mistaken. I acknowledged that above in post #8, together with the reason for my confusion. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Beautiful SnoStar up for auction

    The listing mentions an "older frame-off restoration", which probably explains the appearance of the underside. It does to me, anyway.

    Project Fully Involved - 1969 IH 1300D Foundry Pump Truck

    Yeah buddy-- the beast lives! So those must be the two tow hooks listed on my LST: the original bumper is long gone & I've been wondering about those.

    Is 85db Loud for a Truck Cab?

    Thank you for the info. I have almost 8 years on drilling rigs, and am intimately acquainted with hearing loss. I've used earplugs extensively (I buy them by the case), but sometimes I forget them, I drop one, or don't have to time to put them in because something has just gone sideways and...

    How Much Play is Too Much in a Pinion Bearing?

    I knew about the presence of rotational play, it was the side-to-side play that got me. If I could, I would definitely check that pinion nut, but the truck is at a repair shop where I would think they'd check it.

    He mis-posted a couple of beers in: that would be an RA-15, a big old third-member axle (according to the LST).

    Kind of what I was thinking, Greg. Thanks.

    How Much Play is Too Much in a Pinion Bearing?

    I took my truck in to get the rear pinion seal replaced, and was told that they’d only replace it if there wasn’t too much play in the pinion bearing. I checked it & got a trace of lateral play, maybe 1/64, by the normal shade-tree method. RA-52 axle. Is this a fail?

    ‘72 1310 +’85 Alaskan

    Thanks! I don’t think this project will ever be done. The shock part # was provided by Jeff Campbell in Zolliker’s shock thread. I don’t have it written down anywhere, apparently. I forgot to check fit on that boot before I took the truck to a local transmission shop to have new seals...

    Sure enough, Greg-- I had to remove it for that drag link socket to engage the DL properly.

    Quieting down the Scout 800 (lots of pictures)

    I just read this after Jerry Kemp recommended it as a potential resource for mitigating some of the racket in my truck at highway speeds. I'm at 80-85db at 65 mph (depending on wind direction), and there are some good ideas here. Thank you for taking the time to post them.

    I also got this in a shipment of FJ-40 wheel cylinders: Maybe, just maybe, it’ll be viable substitute for that POS little clutch-linkage boot that lasted about 500 miles. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    New Monroes: Interesting the variation of fasteners used between the two sides; mixed nuts, really. I also noticed both of the riveted-on mounting brackets are loose on the frame, so the rivets will have to be ground off & replaced with bolts eventually. Centering bracket (pay no attention...

    ‘72 1310 +’85 Alaskan

    Went to Big Winderful Wyoming for a few days to correct a few things on the IH, the most important being putting the camper frame & everything piled on it back where it should be on the truck. Apparently, I was lax in keeping the u-bolts properly tightened. We used Harry's 10-ton Porta Power...
