    My first truck driving job was in 1973. I had zero experience. One day my Ford Louisville tractor up and died while going down the road. I called in and a mechanic came out. He showed me how to switch fuel tanks.

    That was the Moldovanian training video.
    The Dream Team video tries to explain to Wong not to take -15% off of 13’6”....

    Okay, we'll give him that one.

    I figure the slightly smarter one (woowoo) installed the electric and told weewee to be a proper driver, connect the other lines and soon realized he's toting an imbecile.
    Such is the NOW of Trucking.
    Thanks Jeff!!

    All I remember is the mechanic showing me the valve that had to be turned, and it was on the floor by the right side of the seat.

    Started out my career with a COE Freightliner with 903 V8. I believe that was the engine size. Had a compression release chain under the drivers door. That was tough trying to pull that and press the ignition button at the same time.

    The only model older than that had the start button that you had to push....... It was right under the horse's tail.
