Using a 75ton rotator to upright a tractor trailer

Using a 75ton rotator to upright a tractor trailer



On June 24, 2019, I responded to a tractor trailer loaded with tires that overturned on the Harry Bridges off ramp in San Pedro. The company sent their own containers and crew to offload the tires, although they were only able to take 85-90% of the load. Once the scene was clear, recovery straps were rigged to the lift line and dual 15′ 1/2″ chains were rigged to the catch line. I used one of the auxiliary winches to help the tractor come over with the trailer, while a heavy wrecker was placed in the front to control the catch, then prepped for tow back to customer’s base.

Air to Fuel Ratio in a Diesel

Air to Fuel Ratio in a Diesel



In this episode of Diesel Insights, DT’s Nick Priegnitz goes into detail about the importance of a diesel engine’s air-to-fuel ratio, especially in tuned trucks.

The air to fuel ratio serves a critical role in the efficient operation of a diesel engine. Without the appropriate combination, the engine could fail and burn a piston, for example. In performance applications, the air-to-fuel ratio is manipulated because efficiency is not that important. But for a daily driver – especially one with fuel emission equipment intact – how the air and fuel react to each other is the bedrock of an efficient engine.

But what is fuel to air definition?

Meguiar’s On Headlight Restoration: Heavy Duty Headlight Restoration Kit

Meguiar’s On Headlight Restoration: Heavy Duty Headlight Restoration Kit



Meguiar’s has several headlight restoration kits to restore clarity to your headlights. Begin by evaluating how much cloudiness, yellowing and hazing you have on your headlights. Next, you want to select the right headlight restoration kit based on the condition of your headlights and if you want to work by hand or by corded drill.

Here we’re selecting Meguiar’s Heavy Duty Headlight Restoration Kit. To obtain the best results, there are a few things to keep in mind:

Make sure you are working on a clean surface. You want the headlights to be clean and free of dust and dirt so you aren’t pushing any debris back into the clear plastic.

Mask to protect surrounding paint. Carefully mask around the headlights to ensure that surrounding paint and trim pieces don’t get bumped by sanding discs and compound, or by final coatings when they are applied.

Sand vertically using the included 1000 grit sanding disc and water. Continue sanding evenly until you get consistent cloudy appearance.

Sand horizontally using the included 3000 grit sanding disc and water. Again, you want to sand thoroughly and consistently until an even appearance is achieved.

Apply Meguiar’s PlastX Clear Plastic Cleaner & Polish onto the wool buffing pad. Attach the included wool buffing pad to a standard corded drill and apply the PlastX (also included) evenly over the buffing pad. Start off working PlastX slowly and thoroughly into the headlight. Then, speed up to create more friction which will work microscopic abrasive into the plastic and remove the fine sanding marks in the headlight. Work in with light to moderate pressure for a couple of minutes and wipe off with the included microfiber before it fully dries. Reapply apply product as needed until the headlight is clear. Then, repeat this process on the other headlight.

Clean headlights with glass cleaner. This will remove any remaining product and allow for the headlight coating to take to the headlight properly. Headlights should look crystal clear at this point.

Apply Headlight Coating onto foam pad. Apply Headlight Coating thin and evenly in straight lines over the headlight making sure to get even coverage. Apply in the same way to the other headlight.

Remove masking tape.

Allow 24 hours for the Headlight Coating to fully cure. Keep the headlights away from water or moisture for 24 hours so that the coating cures evenly and properly. After the coating has fully cured, your headlights will be protected for up to one year.
