Going on a road trip again we're going back to Ocala Hi everybody, good day to you! Welcome back! Yeah, we are going back to Ocala Florida we have left early. we're going back to Ocala because I am uh about to uh, acquire a very valuable and useful asset for uh, for the company and uh, it's kind of like a layered expansion. I didn't plan on doing this but I I I'm I'm stealing this thing regarding the price and I couldn't pass it up. So I've got to make the road trip up here to go pick this thing up.

how did you know because I saw you oh you saw me I was gonna get I was gonna get like some some side action. you're not doing anything anyway. yeah she knows I've got I've got the blessing we did that last weekend so she has given me permission uh to purchase said asset. Uh, we're gonna do that.

Uh, maybe this evening. It depends on when we get there. It's like a three and a half hour drive so if we get there before dark, which we probably won't well, I don't know yet. No.

I see I've just changed my mind now. I'm still gonna try to pick the thing up tonight even though it's gonna be dark and then, um, well. I'm not going to tell you what it is, you're just gonna have to wait and see, so stay tuned. This is going to be a very good video.

Oh yeah, check this out before we get there. Lauren Just brought something to my attention. You guys are animals. Look at that she made.

She made a YouTube channel like four or five days ago and 20 000 of you have showed up. You guys are absolute animals. Thank you guys! Yeah, thank you guys for that. That's cool.

She's like she's having time of her life right now. Seriously, hello for cutting me off. They can go in the same speed as the car in front of me. I Guess that Gap was too big.

Maybe he didn't want me to see where I'm going. What was that? Oh that's the don't kill that guy in front of me alarm. Is that what that was? Got it? How was that lane departure when I didn't depart the lane? Oh I think because the guy was too friend of you. Oh it was.

It was the idiot alarm. Got it? You're too close back away see he pulls in front of me. Then my car tells me I did something wrong. This is the problem with Society at large right now someone else does something wrong and then the bystander isn't fault.

it's nonsense. Um so I just noticed that the lane departure is not turned on so that was not the lane departure alarm. So now I don't know what it was. we're like we're almost there and I was gonna get off and get to like get some food.

I realized we were at The Villages and uh I'm not so sure about that. Now if you don't know about the villages. Google The Villages that's all I have to say about that. Okay, a change of plans.

We're gonna go later because it's late and I'm tired and I don't want to go to, uh, pick up said asset just yet. So we're just gonna hang out right here for right now. and uh, power on all systems. three? Oh, and we'll turn that one off.
You can't use switches or breakers for switches. Watch me there There we go. So as I was saying, um, we're not going to go to the place right now to go acquire said asset. We're gonna do that later once.

it's uh, when it's not as cold outside and not as dark outside. So I guess we'll see you guys in the morning and proof a miracle of film editing. it's the next day. Yeah, attitude I have an attitude.

There's the unit there. it is. That's what I found a 2002 Chevrolet 6500 actually I think it's a 7500 and that badge is wrong because the VIN says it's 7 500. either way, it's a big Chevrolet truck.

It's got big wheels, It's got a big bed, It's got a big engine, big fuel tanks. It has big potential. Let's go check it out. Yeah, here she is.

We're gonna do a walk through when we get out of here. Went ahead and uh, did some paperwork and whatnot I have in my possession. the certificate of title right here. This is.

uh, this is now my truck. Let's see where we're gonna put this thing. not in there. Uh, by the way, 177 209 miles on the odometer.

It's got a six-speed Eaton transmission Caterpillar 3126 inline six cylinder. that's 7.2 liters of Caterpillar diesel power. All right. So here's the deal.

We're gonna take a little half a mile road trip down the street. We're gonna go to the grocery store. I'm gonna get some chicken gizzards and corn dogs for breakfast. Then we're gonna go back to the house and do a bit of a walk through on this machine right here.

Sound like a plan and now we're rolling. Oh here we go. I Think it's even got a tilt wheel? Yeah it does. If I can't do second gear starts.

Hurricane? Yeah, we'll just go ahead and slide her in right here behind this trailer. That's perfect. No air brakes, just a parking brake. Uh, what's what? Oh, that's coffee that I spilled already.

Yeah, Corn dogs and gizzards. Hang on. First one powering down. Come here.

Okie Dokes! I've got my corn dogs. Yeah, there's some corn dogs and chicken gizzards and hot sauce. that's gonna be good. Good breakfast.

Let us restarting the engine. I Don't think we need glow plugs for a second time. Nope. Fire right up.

There's an alarm that doesn't shut off and that's a trick to it. Key it off, Keep it back on real quick. Like shuts down the alarm. Let's get out of here.

Break off reverse backing up the big. Auto I Have the biggest pickup truck ever. Awesome. There's our first gear.

the bumpy. whoa. We're gonna have a load on this on the first day because you'll notice that that life unit followed us back there in the van. But when we ride home, we're gonna put the van on top of the truck.

Day one is going to be the first time we we use this as a towing device. Pretty cool. Yeah, a little steam. That's full throttle Five.

All right. At least go 65 miles per hour so we can drive it on the interstate if we want to. Kind of neat the new Dash This Dash is a little bit broken. We need to fix it I Need to fix a lot of things on this truck For a 2002 commercial vehicle I Think it's a it's in okay condition I Guess we're gonna find out.
Foreign need to put some belts in this thing. Why is my wife driving her van off the road back there? Serious? I Look back in the mirror and she's off in the grass somewhere. Let's do it. She's supposed to be following me and when you follow, you're not supposed to be a quarter mile behind.

She knows that. Look out. Yeah, look how far behind she is following. All right.

Stay here. Dash Don't Don't fall out I need you I don't really know about that? Uh, that shift lever might have to fix that I wonder if I can fit this big thing through our gate? right here? Kind of a small gate? Maybe Yeah, talk squeeze. Yeah, we're good. We're in.

Made it through the gate. All right, All right guys. we're parked. Let's go ahead and uh, hop on down and popping in the hood let's see this monster of an engine.

Yeah, come down hello girl dog right up here. Give it a tug. There we go. uh other side.

Yeah there she is. Caterpillar 3126 six cylinder diesel. bye we're okay. there's a lot of engine in here.

Full Steam Let's go try out the PTO I Haven't figured out how to run the throttle up on it yet. You're supposed to run the throttle up when you engage your PTO There's supposed to be a switch right here, but it's not here on this truck. Uh, the fella that I bought it from said he was using a piece of wood to prop on the gas pedal. but I want to, uh, figure out a different way with PTO engaged to the transmission? We let the clutch out and we're pumping now.

I should have controls back here at the bed. See what we have? All right. That's our wheel lift. Extend in and out.

That's our bed tilt. That's the winch. There we go. that's the one that runs the bed back.

I Think this one's tilt. Nope. There we go. That's tilt.

Give it a tilt back contact and then we'll run the bed back. There we go. Yeah! I Definitely need to figure out how to get. uh, how to get that PTO or how to get that fast idle to come in? Uh oh I Already found a problem.

Look at that. it's axle seal leak I Think that's what that is. Let's keep the bed going back. get some space.

We'll go in there and take a look man. I Drove five miles and it's already broken I Checked for that the other day I Didn't see anything that was fast. All right. See what we got going on with the seal? Is that leaking? or is that just a bunch of schmoo inside of the wheel? Uh.

I Can't tell. Let's go around the other side. Yeah, the driver's side looks good. See, we've got some massive disc brakes on this thing.

It's all hydraulic. no air brakes which is cool. I Mean it's kind of not cool I Like air brakes, but I'm fine not having them. now.
How about that fluid? What do we got here? Yeah, it must be a hub or something I See it on the inside? Uh, there it is. All right. Let's see. fuel tank says quarter tank.

Let's go ahead and check and see what we've actually got in the tanks here. Yeah, that's about right. Looks like quarter tank. We're gonna have to refill this.

No worries. All right, let's go ahead and shut this down again. for now. Yeah, it's loud.

Let's go ahead and shut this thing down. I'll mess around with this later. Dog's ready to go. All right, it is time to hit the road.

We got about three hours of travel to do so. I'm gonna get the van loaded. stopping's the engine. Then we're gonna go ahead and get out of here.

This ought to be fun. Foreign. foreign here here. and we are off.

There's a van behind us. Hello, we can see you. Yeah, there's a band behind this first load. We're ready to roll.

We're leaving. It's gonna be an interesting trip with that. Dog went right over there. That's gonna be fun, but she had to come with us.

We couldn't leave her home by herself overnight. He's an anxiety dog. Go figure right? that first gear is deep. I Don't even need it.

That's a real diesel. A very real diesel. Oh, this is weird. Your fans on the truck I Know that's so weird.

No dog get away from my shifter. more speed. Okay, that's 50 bucks in one of the tanks. 10 gallons and we're about halfway.

But this fuel is expensive here so we're gonna leave. I'll try to find cheaper fuel somewhere else. Get that back. Click.

All right. let's get out of here. You ready to go? I'm ready. Are you ready? I Have food in my mouth? Oh yeah.

Oh embarrassing. putting that putting that man following me. we are approaching maximum speed so I tried to fire up the AC The guy said it worked but the other day it didn't. Come on.

And yeah, we're not getting anything out of this thing. Blower motors down here on the floor. Come on. please turn on.

Hey darling trying to hey, do me a favor, hit that thing real quick. Try to hit it from that side like Ram it I can't reach it from here. No Ram it like a battery Ram no no like jab it, jab it. keep doing that.

You gonna come on. please come on. Ah, there we go. It's on.

Okay, we have airflow in here at least. All right. cool. Let me have that light back.

Thank you Dear Everything's a hammer ready. Let's break off cool. no traffic ride right out. More Steam I Was looking on the interwebs and they've got this same engine for marine applications that make 475 horsepower.

I Want one? This is only like a 270 horsepower. They got them in almost 500 horsepower. That might be fun transmission. Destroyer We could work by work.

Hey uh, Navigator that sign said Turnpike Is there a turnpike coming up or I don't want to pay any tolls with a commercial vehicle? I Don't they get expensive? Cow, you know that fan belt business in there that's squeaking is absolutely driving me out of my mind right now. Oh I couldn't help myself Hey Soul Man, you got your ears on. Come back, it breaks again. All right.
So this is what Lauren was talking about earlier. She was uh well, actually she was recording for her Channel She was saying something about how she's developed a new respect for uh, the truck drivers and the guys that drive big equipment and we got a case in point right here. So we're we're going 56 in a 50 Zone motorcycle in front of us and this car back here behind. They're over there breaking their neck trying to get around me and they're not going to go anywhere.

but they're still upset that they're back there behind me and I can see in the late in the late body language she's hitting her hand and swerving and looking left and trying to see what's in the way and blah blah blah and you know again we're already speeding and there's there's cars in front of me. Yeah, what can I do but but they're mad at me I guess this is uh this is the downside of having a larger sized vehicle I mean it's bad in my Silverado especially with a trailer but this thing it like it attracts angry ingredients and I'm not gonna lie I think that's kind of funny I know Google Snacks Pedestrian warning: Ah, another pedestrian. They're everywhere. Danger, Danger.

Oh, something's going on I Need to change lanes, move over car, put on your signal and they speed up. Yeah. acceleration. Yeah, they smashed a bunch of stuff up here.

That's not good. It's hard holding this steady because it's uh, so bumpy. Oh dang, they they broke a bunch of stuff. Did someone else come up here and cut me off? Yeah, that car on the right's trying it.

they're trying to go. Sorry I have no space for you. Oh, they're gonna do it anyways. you can drive up there, cut me off later.

It's okay to record accidents. Um yeah. I think so I Mean if it's if it's like your gruesome accident, then I'll just delete it. Yeah, that's good.

I'm not as close to that van as it appears to be. he's going to have room to get over I'm not locking this guy. man. So this guy right here I came around I Saw him pulling up to the spot right here.

There's still only two diesel pumps and this whole gas station. The bus has one of them and this dude went over there and he's over there hanging out that food truck like there's parking spaces everywhere and he decides to park at the fuel. Island That is bad protocol. If you'd like to be a better human being, don't park at the Fuel.

Island Those are the rules. We figured it out here. We go Fuel here, we go. Okay, this has absolutely nothing to do with the video, but this guy and the guy behind the building.
They were just fist fighting a second ago so we figured we'd record that too. We didn't catch the actual fight. it was pretty quick, but uh. now they're kind of wandering around trying to figure out what to do with each other.

Let them fight. They're not fighting over here. Central Florida These things happen. Which guys? uh, the guy with the blue shirt long sleeve and then, okay, let's get out of here.

disconnecting air brakes. Check that thing out. It's a land dredge that's for dredging. uh, the surface of the ground.

It's one of the sulfur mines. I think it's a mosaic equipment. Yeah, there's a sulfur mine over here. This is all mine territory for minerals.

All right. Home sweet home. Let's get the van off the truck. Hey I think I figured out my uh, my idol up real quick on the PTO Watch this hang on clutch in we're all the way.

PTO Up here we go PTO is engaged there it is. Hook it up. So what? I'm gonna do I Found this little piece of metal right here. focus and it fits perfectly right there in the throttle or not.

I'm gonna try again. Get in there you there we go. Ah one more time I Know this is gonna work There we go. let's see what we're gonna do here and slide this bed back.

Oh, we need stabilization there. we go wrong back. Do the other back. Uh-huh Bring that all the way back.

We'll tilt her a little bit. Tilt's a little slow. Oh, hang on. it's because my wheel lift is picking it up There we go.

More tilt, more tilt, less wheel lift. Yeah, that's what we want that on the ground I was doing it wrong. Okay, now more till all the way up and the rest of the way back. We don't need these chains anymore.

I'm out chain number two disconnected man, you stay there and I like controls on both sides. That's cool. we're down. Uh, winch.

Which that's my winch. Okay, it's in. uh, it's in park. Let me pull my hooks out here.

All right. one more on the other side that one that's a little farther in there. Hang on. Now Where's those keys? Keys, keys keys got him.

Let's get the fan again, off of the truck, climb, restarting the engine, reverse backing off slowly and safely. So far so good. I Think no, no, we're good. All right.

Sweet. That was a success. Nice all right guys. Well I'm home and I'm done and that's the end of the road trip.

It was a long day today. uh, probably more on that thing to come because it's got a bunch of stuff that needs fixed. but uh, I'm not gonna do that right now because I'm tired and it's Saturday and I'm not working anymore today. So uh, that being said, it's always like thank you for watching this video.

Hope you enjoyed this video, Hope you enjoyed the truck. Hope you enjoy the future appearances and cameos of said truck. Let me know what you think about that thing in the comments section down below. And most importantly, do not forget to have yourselves a great day! See you guys later powering down Shiny.

    For greater stability you should cross the chains

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Laredo DaMod says:

    Love a Cat powerplant….. I suggest you learn to float the gears.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Edenburn says:

    If I remember you use the cruise control to pick up rpms well using the pto

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ezrider359 says:

    seems to run and drive and operate fine. so id call it a treasure, there's always going to be a lot of little things on older equipment.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Beregynia Beregynia says:

    Great buy Ray. But in Europe you'd loose your registration on the spot due to the tires on rear axle.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donald Halls says:

    Here in Australia you need to tie your load down, and not rely on the winch even hydraulic, has to be strapped on all 4 wheels, my cousin used to drive tow truck's, great looking truck too bad about the rear seal, all the best to yous and your loved ones

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Raymond Jagneaux says:

    For a good replacement dash. Find an 89 chevy truck. In 89 the plastics used in the dash had uv additives to prevent dash shattering. The hole for the instrument cluster harness is different but all you have to do is cut the hole bigger and plug the harness to instrument cluster before installing cluster. Hope it helps

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stephen Jump says:

    Ray your chains have T hooks that go into the slots on the cars frame it’s easier to use then J hooks on modern cars as their axle points are weak and can break easily while tightening the rear chains, I used to own a tow company and had 10 trucks in total from flatbeds to medium duty cranes to heavy duty cranes we could do it all, the best thing u can do is label your winching and bed slide and lift and lower handles so you’ll know what’s doing what and when as far as the throttle rpm’s go and the pto it’s better to use the bed at 1100 rpms and no higher cause you’ll wear out your pump and seals quicker the higher the rpm’s are the more stress on the pto system that’s a nice medium duty truck and you can’t beat a steel bed it’ll last forever, u might wanna think about buying an LED lightbar for it and strobes for the front and rear and sides of the truck

    Is the house an extra home you own?

    The Villages, home community for mid to older range people, lot of wife swapping going on in there!!

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matt says:

    Pretty cool buy. Here what I know about cmvs. The idol up future is in the cruise control. You should be able to turn it on and hit the set speed button to bring the idol up to your desired rpm. And that's if the cruise control works or is an installed option on the truck.

    definetaly set winch up wih a remote controller. I have one on a 2013 isuzu nrr rollback i drive for my company. I haul farm tractors and lawnmowers. I use the controller when I have to sit on the machines to steer them up onto the bed when using the winch.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Irwin says:

    The irony of Ray's first Tow Truck having plates from my state

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thomas Pressley says:

    I think you made a real good decision in buying the truck. You won't regret it. You have the garage and now you have the rollback. You've come a long way from where you were. Don't ever look back and wonder if you made a mistake. The future is definitely in your hands. Good job and best of luck to you!!!!

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Ladd says:

    good looking truck keep up the good work

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Combs says:

    Thats a good score. You get a lot of bang for your buck out of an old used medium duty truck. Hydraulic brakes is a plus.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Levi Y. says:

    I know that is an older carrier unit but as a tow truck builder I would recommend to Check your hydraulic lines, make sure they arent flopping around in the chassis or at rub points. Find the serial plate for it and cross reference with the companies website. I.e. if it is a Chevron bed go to miller industries website and they have manuals in the upper right for parts break downs. Also the wheel lift up/down, wheel lift in/out controls are normally next to each other. The same with bed in/out and bed up/down. So unless my dyslexia kicked in…… Might want to check that out. Final thing, the umbilical and winch hydraulic lines, check the track they run in. Overtime with enough use the electrical will rub itself raw causing electrical issues in the deck.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Merullo says:

    Eatons dont like the clutch pushed to the floor every shift. If you drive it like a diesel stick truck and just run the gears it will actually go into gear.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Toms driveway says:

    They still made that dash in 2002? That looks like a 1992 interior

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Josh Ozbirn says:

    Eastbound and down for every road trip

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars NESR says:

    love the truck Ray .

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stinky Fingers says:

    Hate to tell ya Ray. that thing has a million hundred seventy seven Thousand miles. TOO MUCH BLOW BY. I Drove one for years.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Marc Green says:

    On the trucks I drive that have PTO we idle it up we use cruse control

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rex Wright says:

    I like your pown

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matthew Jenkins says:

    You might want to check the regs where you are, but no way I'd be happy with two chains pulling one way, plus a winch.
    If that winch goes, you have nothing stopping it from rolling back.
    Trucks in UK I used to do recovery with would always strap all 4 wheels.
    If we did 2 just to get away from a difficult spot, it would be one front and the opposite rear, just until we can safely pull up and strap the other 2..

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eskieguy says:

    Seems to me, that if when test driving a car, it quits, then the Wife Unit could drive out with the Tow Unit with the Dog Unit, see how it all ties together?

    Oh, and, yes, I think this was a good move. The fact that it starts easily proves it's still in good mechanical shape.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bryan Draughn says:

    Last time I had chicken gizzards was at yehaw junction.
    Can't find em anywhere else.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Duncan McEwan says:

    Looks like a good purchase. Might need some repairs, but lucky you know a man who can do that 😉 You might not need the truck every day, but having it will open up another stream for you. Someone breaks down and you can go pick up the car, take it to the shop and fix it. Good deal !

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars john liford says:

    When that song came on I was dead😂

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sgt. Marcus p stacker says:

    Gm trucks from that era are very reliable and and go for a long time, especially with cat motor and heavy trans. drove one like it and loved it! Hope it's in good enough shape to use for some years ahead, good purchase from what I see 👍

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GrayRealities says:

    Is there a Bible on the driver’s side? ❤ that’s wonderful. If it is God is with you Ray take care of yourself take care of your family.❤

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ryan Trott says:

    I love watching your videos, you are funny and interesting and your videos show things I've always wondered about. I would love to see you do all the repairs on this truck and breathe new life into it. The dash and air conditioning need fixing, the idle has a problem, and most likely has a few engine and drivetrain issues.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GrayRealities says:

    80 miles an hour seriously dude don’t they give tickets out there for speeding lol 😂

    KEEP THE TOW TRUCK ! It's an asset.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matt D's Hobby and Life says:

    I don't know if this has already been answered, but usually most IDLE UPS are part of the cruise control system (at least on most trucks I've driven). Use the good ole GM multi-dysfunction switch that you normally use for cruise control. Turn on switch, hit set, then use the accel to increase rpm, and the end switch to decrease rpm. Hopefully that works for you, by the condition of the truck, the lever/switch might need replaced. My personal pickup has the same one and gives me issues at times LOL. By the way you came all the way here to my hometown to pick up this beauty. Hope to see more flatbed content upgrades and usage in the future!!!
