  1. Wes sells on Ebay. He has a listing for a '73 440. Ask him if this will cover your 1982 HP-440. Link: Holmes 440
  2. Wow, that brings back memories. When I started working for the Electric Co. they still had a few of those old Autocars. Cab high service body with a roof mounted A frame hoist for setting utility poles. Bed mounted Braden CL winch PTO powered from one of the two chassis transmissions. Oh, yes I am that old.
  3. Anybody still have one of these Indy jib booms taking up space in the shop? Maybe laying out back but not too rusty from 20 years ago? This would fit a NoMar 810 or 1010 wrecker. Have cash, thanks for looking. https://tow.photos/images/2020/12/26/imsc0144.jpg
  4. Southeast Pennsylvania Hit and Run On Tuesday an Able Brothers Towing Operator was struck on Route 1. Some how he only ended up with 2 broken ribs, broken wrist and lots of pain and bruises. Many X-rays did not show any more breaks. Dave is in my prayers he heals okay. The attack vehicle never stopped.
  5. That is beautiful artwork! Put some street tires on it and run it as my daily back and forth to work. Maybe that would keep the rice burners from cutting me off. The creator is very talented.
  6. Information you should know about PTO's and transmissions is that they are matched to each other. Yes many transmissions have the same mounting for the PTO but the PTO drive gear needs to match the different trans. Also the assembly arrangement can be different form one trans to the next. There are many different model PTO's as well. If you want to keep the boom operational with a PTO, a later model GM 5 speed would work. Look for one that has a PTO already mated. There would also be clutch modifications needed to use the 5 speed.
  7. Kevin drove out with his wrecker and did a fabulous job loading the engine and transmission. It was located in a tight hilly driveway. Thank you very much!
  8. Hello, Is there anyone in or near East Hampton that could load an engine and transmission in my pickup? Seller estimates it weighs 1500 pounds. With all the road tolls and bridge fees I really would rather just drive the pickup truck. Seller has no way to lift the engine. Please PM me with your contact info and an estimated price. Thank you.
  9. I assume you found their site for information? http://www.truhitch.com/ I work on a fleet of utility equipment. When any of our heaver units requires a tow, such as our IH Paystar 5000 mounted with a 170 foot reach Bronto Skyreach, the towing contractor always arrives with their Tru-Hitch. The all wheel drive Paystar is very top heavy an just makes scale.
  10. Carlisle Fairgrounds hosting Truck Nationals this weekend. Lots to see: https://carlisleevents.com/
  11. Still here in Pennsylvania. Carlisle Truck Nationals this weekend. https://carlisleevents.com/ Anyone going? I'll be there. IA62-IA64 Always lots of trucks and wreckers to see. (not my wrecker pictured)
  12. I added two flag holders to my hobby wrecker: American Flag always on the right. Two small Bonnie Blue flags on the wheel lift and a Scouting anniversary flag on the mast. Sorry, no wind to move the flags when parked.
