Hanks truck is an antique. He has a new truck that he is running now and has returned to the road. He posts lots of pictures on Facebook. I asked him to bring the older truck to the ATHS national show in Mass (2012), he said he would consider it unless he donates the truck to the Museum at Iowa 80.

Scott,

DEF/AdBlue (or AUS32, Aqueous Urea Solution 32.5) is used by major European truck manufacturers (Volvo, DAF, Mercedes-Benz), Kenworth in America (those fitted with the Paccar MX engine) and a certain Japanese maker (UD) as the primary exhaust aftertreatment additive - it gets precisely injected into the exhaust gases via a metering nozzle and pump before the SCR catalyst, the treated exhaust gases get passed through the cat then are exhausted out through the exhaust pipe outlet as harmless nitrogen and water. AdBlue is non-toxic and non-flammable hence no need for special transport and storage - it is composed of 32.5% urea (the same stuff found in fertiliser) and 67.5% deionised water.

DEF freezes at -11C and becomes totally solid at -28C - in case this happens, moreso in Canada and America in winter, there is a heater on the DEF tank which allows it to thaw slowly. It is not required upon engine start-up because the catalyst needs time to heat up before it becomes useful - once it starts being used, you can smell it on the exhaust! I can tell ya because I have taken the time to stand next to a DAF FTT CF85 single drive tractor unit owned by a local car carrying firm and taken a deep, deep breath in!

Basically, that's DEF/AdBlue in a nutshell - if you want to know more, go to http://factsaboutscr.com and have a look!

Interesting looking trucks.  I am not too sure if the new hood fits the styling of the cab and sleeper, but there is something appealing about, it is going on me.  I have to say, the T470 is a hideous looking truck, looks like a Mack with a Kenworth extended day cab.  I have to say I am glad that my truck still looks like a truck, with corners on it sharp enough to shave with in a pinch.   I am curious what does that addative do, and is it required to run by the government or does it compensate for the new ULSD (ultra low sulphur diesel) that they are running these days?

The T700 is powered by the 12.9 litre Paccar MX 6 cylinder engine from Paccar's Dutch arm, DAF - these engines require AdBlue, or Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF), a odourless and colourless non-toxic liquid additive to run!

  • Patrick, the T-2000 is now the T700.  It is still around just with a different name and a few other changes.  It still looks the same. 
  • The new name does make sense in Kenworth's sceme of name/numbers.
  • The style of the T700 is about all that is going to pass for comming CAFE requirements in 2014.

Another truck has left the Kenworth line of trucks.  That's the T2000.  I did get a ride in it one time, but I forgot to film it.  I was going to get the guys to set me up with the famous W900 Kenworth, but they were swamped with deals and orders.  I was planning on making a DVD for the new St. John's Children's Hospital.  But instead I will have to PM Hank Good to see if he could make one.  His 1981 K-100 Aerodyne is old enough to be a historic truck if I'm correct.  All you see on trucks today are just junk. 

 If it doesn''t come with two sticks, how can it be a truck!
