    Remember ACL? Göteborg 56 years ago. If I remember right the containers were partly made of aluminium.

    Hello.

    How is everyone?

    My buisness is #### but stable as we tend to say in Poland :rolleyes:

    Can someone explain to me why when browsing truckpaper, Cummins powered trucks, most of them are rebuild with 400k miles? Same with transmission?

    Hello ,

    haven’t heard from 98989 in a long time…..

    My Paccar salesman told me just the other day that one should plan on rebuilding a new truck engine at 500,000 miles. If it lasts longer your lucky….

    The transmission I haven’t heard that …..

    I know a guy with a newish Peterbilt

    600,000 on it now. First it blew a turbo and filled dpf with oil and ruined all after treatment. Now it’s dropped a liner and pushing coolant….and he takes care of his stuff….
