Thats what all y'all old guys say (running and ducking under the nearest the I can find, LOL)I'll tell you what, except for a couple cab-overs, I have driven nothing but long nose or extended hoods, but my Volvo 670 that I have now is great, it turns on a dime, easily backs up into tight spots and still has plenty of cab space, it might not look like the classic style truck but I get paid the same, regardless the style of truck and since it costs me less to operate(except for repairs) I make more money.
The only thing I ever disliked about working on the Volvo trucks was changing fuel filters on the ones with Volvo engines. They are on the left side of the engine, about the middle, just above the front axle, and very hard to get to.Normally you strike me as a rational, and relatively sane person, especially for a truck driver Racer, but in this case I am afraid you have left me shaking my head. We all know you would give up all that room and comfort, not to mention better visibility, just for a single day in a truck that was basically designed in 1957 and has barely changed, outwardly at least, to this very day!
As a former wrench on these fine pieces of equipment, which one is easier to work on, in your opinion?
The fuel filter on the ISX in a Volvo is in the same spot, what a pain in the backside to change, it is basically a two man job if you don't have a pit or 6 foot armsThe only thing I ever disliked about working on the Volvo trucks was changing fuel filters on the ones with Volvo engines.
