    I know you mean, starter button.
    I haven't seen a compression release since the old NH Cummins days, didn't know they were on 903s
    We would hold the throttle wide open, lift the valves and put out more smoke than an old Associated Transport Brown.
    Ryder had so many complaints, they were all disconnected.

    I don't know if you remember the old Associated Browns, we couldn't stay in the same county with them, but you
    could follow the smoke 2 miles or more.

    I think Roadway aquired them years ago, their tractors and trailers were built in Charlotte, I think.
    They were refirbished there for sure, from the ground up, both units were called Browns

    My first trucking job was with a very small company that rented a few doors on the Associated Transport dock in Romulus Michigan in 1973. The P.I.E dock was just down the road.

    They ran day cabs on the south end, just like this sleeper, straight 5 spds, no aux, 175 Cummins, these old horses
    ruled the roads in the 50s and 60s.
