4 pedals for 2 legs is a very fresh solution!!!
This is necessary for separate brake control on diagonal wheels. On a good road, the pedals are connected together and brake all 4 wheels. If you get stuck in the mud and diagonal hanging, you can disconnect the pedals and slow down the freely rotating wheels. Due to this, more loaded wheels pull the car out of the mud. This is a kind of ABS and differential lock)))
thanks for showing all the details … very nice build
Neat looking old truck you have there,Gasifier looks supreme QUALITY. That old truck could save a tone of money in fuels, now you need a gardon too knock down some of the crazy high food prices. OR at leiste I Do need a bigger Gardon. How fast can you maintain speed on the blacktop roads.? COOL.
Hello Kevin. We have a garden and a vegetable garden, rabbits and chickens. We also need to buy goats for milk. To completely free yourself from the power of money.)) On gasoline, the speed is 55 miles per hour, on firewood 43 miles per hour. But I don’t need a lot of speed, it’s a post-apocalyptic car, there’s nowhere to hurry.
Hello Giorgio. Thank you for your interest. And what do you like to grow in your garden?
hello dimitri…my wife is in a seed saving organization, so she has a lot of different things in the bigself sufficient garden…beside others the best tomato races we have come from russia, a neighbor from my mother in law brought them from siberia, from his mother there…
i will only remember nikolai wawilow, great seed saver , and of course also mitschurin…
garden cultivation in our area is not easy, nothing comes from “himself”…because we have long period without any rain…all must be watered with water drip pipes…
also we grow wheat and rye for our sourdough bread and from time to time we grow also chickpeas…
when you will begin with goats…there is a good recipe for intestinal verms from kristijan here from the forum, and also don mannes… if the goats have verms give the dose of 1 cigaret tobacco one time in a week, when not disappeard the next week again…when goats have a stinky diarrhoe they have probably lot of verms…don mannes here from the forum gave from time to time a bit tobacco for prevention…
this information should be distribuited more as possible, because works well …
not knowing this i was costricted tu use a chemical product, unfortunately from pfitzer, and with this product my goats become always more weaker and at least the got inflammations in the legs and with a while they died…also fertility disturbs, malformations at the young born goats…
post- apocalypse…you are right, we are near …the only saving is in our lord jesus christus, believing in his word , and make in practice his word…his blessing for you ciao giorgio
Thanks for the answer, Giorgio. We used to keep goats and now we need to buy. But they never got sick. Grandma said because they don’t eat everything in a row like sheep, but choose only useful herbs from hay. There is trouble with seeds, all the old Soviet varieties are lost, and new foreign ones give one generation and that’s it. We save a little of our seeds ourselves.
I don’t know if these tomatoes were actually from Siberia but they are my favorite early tomato. Mature much faster than any others and very good taste. Note that this is different from what some sell as the Siberia tomato.
Americans, at least, should recall what happened in 2020 from the covid lockdowns. The seeds and gardening supplies were all bought up within a couple weeks and weren’t widely available until the next year. Get your supplies early.
I was looking again at your post Apocalypse truck Dmitry. I wish it were mine. I would like a wood gas converted Uni-Mog. Even ones from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s are usually 20,000 dollars and up around here. And Up can go a long way depending on how they are outfitted.
Hello Tom. I like to work with my hands. Invite me, I’ll come and weld for you such a gas generator for any car.))
Dont talk about a Uni Mog. Left this at a client. Walked away and kept my wallet closed. Enough projects. But it is a beauty. Sorry for of topic.
And yes, your domesday is a beauty too Dmitri.
Thank you Joep! I saw unimog once in Moscow.
Looks like a good emergency vehicle for cold russia snow storm winters, hunting or wood hauling at leiste, HEAVY DUTY DOG TRUCK.
Joep, I noticed that many buildings in your country have brick floors instead of concrete like you see here. Is there a reason for that? What sub base is under there and does it hold up under heavy equipment?
No,I dont think so. Brick floors are from 50 years ago or more. All substituted for concrete. With bricks you have to build in arches or they collaps. Only thin 2 inch slap with iron now, all the pipes for heating, electricity, ventilation, sewer, water, etc is mounted on that. On top of that a layer of iron and then it is al poured in concrete. Total is around 30 cm, 9 inch. Bricks are used for walls.
And the last years a lot of prefab with wood. Very interesting developments.
We have a house with inside structure of prefab lightconcrete and traditional outside bricks. It was set up in five days after groundwork. One day a floor, next day walls , next day floor, next wall, next floor and foldable roof. Ha, fun to see that being build. And another two months to finish outside bricks. Windows were already mounted on the walls when they were delivered by truck. This hapened in 2007, my daughter is studying now. Cant waitto hear the new technics.
Btw, our floors are hollow canal plates. Ready as they come.
Don, I think you mean ‘broodjesvloer’ or a brand Nehobo vloer (floor) until around the 70’s. Hollow bricks with a slight arch between bars.
A friend of mine is building a house. This was in the front yard. Two or three inch slab with steel. On this all the piping and electric. On top of the steel another layer and it is all poured in concrete. This is how it is done most of the times now.
