    So truck is started and airlines taken care of little cursing trying to get those copper lines off the air compressor. Got a load out for 2moro.. Today the truck sounded totally different starting. The truck sounds so nice cold its not surging like it was before. Weird saying all i did was replace the oil T stat from a 235 to a 215. Replaced all the bolts and spacers and gaskets on the manifold.

    Picked my first load up for this year in Ohio, Boston bound. Got to Buffalo and 90 east bound was shut down due to lake effect multi vehicle accident. Made my way around on ny 33 stop and go traffic as you would imagine during a snow storm, another accident had that road shut down. Making my way back to 90 eb at the last traffic light my clutch peddle starts to vibrate. No clutch break, by the time I get back on 90 and park I am one hour late on my delivery. Thought I might be able to deliver without a clutch break but wen I pulled out this morning I can see it may be more then that. Made my way to a service garage and we will see what they have to say. It would have been nice if this happened just before my full service last week.

    Not a great start to the New Years for you. The Northeast is supposed to getting a snow storm tonight-tomorrow. Hopefully that does effect you even further. I'm not far from Newburgh, NY trying to get loaded and get out of here.

    I guess my equipment didn't wanna work. Trailer brakes where frozen solid took me 40 mins to get them broken lose.

    Question on a dump valve toggle. Does that have to have a ground on the truck side? Or is that grounded in the back when it was installed?

    When I hooked mine up the dump valve was wired to the socket no wire from dump valve to the trailer frame. If I recall on the socket it was the top terminal and the center
