Second last P-16 Pacific built
« on: March 04, 2016, 08:17:07 PM »
The second last P-16 truck built was sold to MacMillian Bloedel, this truck was also built in Oct 1989    Driver Pete Burley got her brand new at Sarita. Pete stayed on her till he went onto a KW highway truck in 2001. She was,  one of a five truck order. Two Preloads   H139  H140 later changed to (H14)  and three conventionals  H138  H153 H155   All were specíd out the same  91,000 Clark rears  13:1 ratio  60-61 Allison trans  KTA 600 Cummins engines. Truck  was bought by Hayes Forest in 2003 along with a number of other M&B trucks at the big WEYCO Garage sale. It remained red and white but had the HFS decals on the doors for about 2-3 years. If I remember right it was about 2005 that she went to their shop in Duncan and was rebuilt to their specís. That is when the Cummins was removed and the C15 Cat engine installed.. This is when the paint scheme went from red and white to the white and yellow that it has today. She had a number of different drivers on her over the years. IPL bought her in Jan/2008 along with a number of other trucks from Hayes Forest after they lost the contract with Western Forest products at Franklin. Because of the good shape it was in it was decided by IPL to just leave it alone and run it and just do the maintanence required as things were needed. Driver Donny Bodnar went on her when IPL bought it it and he stayed on her till he retired then Jim Johnson went on her till she was taken to Chemianus late in 2015 to have the trans replaced. She was to get a new paint job and a mini rebuild at the same time. I donít know if the trans was changed before she was sold or not. As for paint jobs  IPL never changed the color of any trucks and that is why we had orange ones and yellow ones.   When IPL bought H153 (ex M&B H155) it was still red and white. IPL had her rebuilt and repainted in the same colors as the rest of the HFS Fleet.
