my 671 holds 30lb at 2500 rpm and it doesn't register at an idle  but I know it has it or it would have went bang by now  ;D

Coxy, the 6-71's we had at Merrill Transport had an alarm hooked to a Murphy switchgauge on the oil pressure and temp gauges. We had to turn the oil pressure switch down to 5 psi or lower or it would go off whenever the driver stopped for a stoplight, and we were running 40 weight oil!!!

   Yeah. They had a Vermont Division, with a main terminal on Dorset Street in So. Burlington, a terminal in Fair Haven, and the one in Bennington, where I worked part-time in the winters for seven years. Good company, had good shops and took care of their equipment and people. Safety was a high priority, and if you did your part, they recognized that.
    They paid by the trip, using post office miles, and that made for some uneven pay rates. Example: the Port of Albany is a big place, but all trips from there were figured the same. Mobil was the first terminal you came to, and before security tightened up, you could swing in there around the office to the rack, top load, and be out of there and headed East in 12-15 minutes. Sears terminal (they stored a lot of fuel for Agway)is a long way down 32 in Selkirk, slow to load, and paid the same to Bennington. Guess which trips the part-time guys got. We had a couple of Mobil customers in Bennington that you could turn 4 trips in 12 hours---Agway might take you 4 hours or better each one.
