Ah onetrack , it ain't a simple corner ol'mate . Supprised it doesn't happen more often . Very step pull up to that corner and you have to stick the boot in to climb it laden , main street , cars trying to beat every one , bad camber , and then to top it all off after doing that hard right hander , imediately have to do a hard left hander . Report I had heard was that truck was not travelling fast but oviously should have been going slower ! >:(

?? re truck roll overs

There where 4 different ones around Victoria in the last couple of days that made the radio news, one on the black spur, one in Fitgerald Road Laverton, one at Geelong and the one at Kurrumburra, Is it the drivers or is there a wider problem ?? maybe like air bag suspension.

Fixing buggered ships engines is a pretty interesting and specialised game. Tatra should be able to tell us a lot more, he's been there and done that.
There's no pulling the donk out, they're too big and heavy to come out. They fix them in-situ, and I've read about a crowd that specialised in it, and there were some amazing fixes amongst their stories.
With the one above, you'd have to hope the crank didn't get a twist in it. If it did, I reckon they'd be scrapping the ship. Some of those cranks weigh 300 tonnes, in engines that weigh 2500 tonnes.
With smaller engines, they have to cut holes in the deck or side to get components such as crankshafts in. With the biggest engines, there's no way of even lifting the engine, let alone trying to get a crank into the engine room.
Surprisingly, piston replacement at sea is common, and most ships carry at least one spare piston on board.

Here's a video of a small crank replacement going in. This crank must only be about 15-20 tons.

Was heading North up the Hume on Friday Afternoon and saw a wrecker an angle in the South Bound Lane around Benalla.

A quick look as we went past showed a B-Double Pan on it side in a field about 75 meters from the road. it was parallel to the road about 1/2 way along a long (couple of km) straight stretch.
The wrecker was on an angle to the road and I noticed further down there were temporary speed restriction signs up with police cars blocking the left hand lane. About 10 minutes up the road we passed another wrecker heading south (to help with the recovery?)

I couldn't get much more detail due to the police cars etc blocking the south bound lane and trying to avoid people veering into my lane as they were looking at it rather than where they were going. It didn't make the media so I wonder if anyone here knew anything?
Hiding in the shed covered in grease and muck - want a coffee?
