Wouldn't that involve 99 different driveshafts? Or at least a bunch?

I should think so unless they're moving the front wheels, although they were likely multi piece driveshafts so maybe one section. Small differences could be handled by a sliding spline at one of the pillow blocks.

Drive shafts are ridiculously easy to make.

Question did International use Torque Tubes on the smaller trucks like GMC?

Don't know if they used torque tubes or not.

Tractors were his business until he bought a Ferrari and had a lot of trouble with it so he started his own company with the Miura.

Damn, but this is one beautiful truck. The dash brings to mind classic wristwatches.

It is from a neat website, too.

Back in the day most instrument panels were similar in they the used fine needles and finer lettering. Classy yet harder to read in low light but slower speeds gave more time to figure it out. Then they graduated to fat needles too wide to tell which graduation they were pointing at so minimum graduations like H & C instead of temperature and H&L instead of pressure. Next came idiot lights but they seem to be getting away from that.


Heavy equipment...

apparently, making solid rocket fuel isn't rocket science. more like... kitchen science. as I remember, granulated sugar is one of the primary ingredients. now, strapping myself to one and having it lit... that seems a lot more religious.

Do you remember this guy?
From https://ask.metafilter.com/146662/Ty...3-Hour-Service

"I used to live upstairs from Bruce. Bruce drove a tow truck: a sweet black flatbed with recessed flashers and a massive winch on the front. On the doors was written "Bruce's Wrecker Service: Out To Get You 23 1/2 Hours A Day"."

When I asked about that, Bruce said, "Well, I gotta stop and take a shit sometime."

Unintended, but inarguable:
Top right illustration is Bruce's girl in the barrel race.
Second down on left is "WHOA!"
