Sounds like you might have had a 550 CAT with an 18 Speed too!!! How in the devil did you get through the scales at the bottom of the mountain grossing 105,000? They stopped me for something every time I went through there.

Well ya had to learn how to Play the scales and 99% of the time i had this little piece of paper that said it was OK. OR ya waited till they went home and turned off the lites . First truck was a 77 International 4300 Eagle with a built 855 small cam with a 13 speed and i can not tell ya what she could put out because the day we dynoed it she broke the chain and went out the door as they could not hold it . The last one was a 98 9400 I H with a 550 Cat with a 13 speed 3.90 rears and a Diesel Injection (now call Pittsburg Power ) box with this little switch that helped . It would go up hills a lot faster then i wanted to go down them. biggest load pulled with the 9400 was just shy of 2600000. the 4300 278800

When they really sock it to ya if you are caught going down (south) on the old road (US Hwy 52). I had an aquantice try that, got caught, became a guest of the State of Virginia (Carrol Co. jail) for three days before he was able to make bail.

Many, many moons ago...before I-77 was finished across the mountain...I had an occasion to go down that old hwy. at night...in fog...driving a pickup. I SURE don't wanna do it in a big rig...that's a scary bugger!!
