Bob Ont.. My boss knows all about everything. If he says the brakes are not dragging on the D 8 then you better know it,,Even though I put ten gallons of oil in it ,That has nothing to do with a leak or low pressure to brake release. >Also because I solder wires that goes on trucks and trailers and use an electronic beeper to test,I make a mountaain out of a molehill when I wire things,They should have aluminum clips and balls of wire with twist-ons like the truck we cant find the problem with lights on.Even if they drag almost on the ground.So let that be a lersson to any potential technition.There is nothing to anything if you are the boss.Electrical current complies with bosses orders not laws of physics.As does fluids in the Cat D 8.

That's okay Clod, I love Cat owners with DEEP POCKETS. Too bad he's way down in Texas or I could put in a brand new everything when he finally cries UNCLE. $$$$$$$
Later Bob

Hi Y'all,

Hunnh, guess I worked Union, too many years,

He may NOT be always right, But he's always the BOSS.
I didn't get paid to bump heads with him.

As long as it's not a safety issue, I can do it any way he tells me too.

It doesn't work! Not my fault, talk to the Boss.
Had to get orders in writing a few times, though, to cma.

Only got one little Boss to listen to, now that I'm retired. She's always RIGHT too.
Hunnh! It just never changes.
'Til Later.........
Old John

couple of times that happened to me too, but I didn't give any ground. Both cases were steering shafts that were twisted because of a wreck. Got to look close between the pitman arm and the box and you can see the spline will have a slight twist in it. You can't line a front end when this happens. They didn't like it, but some things you can cobble and some you shouldn't. I wouldn't. Some places bend struts, we didn't. At least I went to sleep at night knowing I didn't try to shortcut something that should be replaced , not just bent around to fit

from what I found in my work years I'd rather hear them bellyache up front than have an accident later on from a repair I did.

A high % of the folks that ever complained I was too picky always came back when they had another repair they wanted done right.
