Re: driveline, tip to tail and in between stories
I was driving a semi from Los Angeles to Oakland, Cal in the late '60s and had a load of tar paper on the trailer, I got to Manteca, Ca and was turning around in a truckstop to park and grab a bite to eat. Halfway thru my turnaround, the steering wheel literally came off the shaft. I took the steering wheel into the truckstop and told the owner I may be blocking part of his driveway till the boss can get there and repair it in the morning. I was so glad that that did'nt happen while I was driving 60 mph, that I forgot why I stopped and never did get my meal.
