Slightly off subject, but I am probably going with "walkie" forklift batteries.  I worked for about 8 years in distribution, and we had some of these batteries that were over 15 years old, being used 1-2 shifts per day, 6 days a week.  The small ones in the walkies were 12VDC, 600AmpHr rated.  Since my only 12VDC loads are the Frig, LP GAS heater blower, and LED lights the battery should last a long time before hitting the 50% discharge--then switch to the second one and charge the 1st when I can, or use a tiny little gas gen(quiet) to do the job.

Brian, 1978 is a old manual if you were the original owner DD would send all the releases and updates for manual mine has all up to 1998 then DD stopped supporting it, mine has something like 143 releases each one contains as many as 20 new service bulletins

Make sure grounds are good at the bottom of the electrical compartment below driver. They corrode on those A, C, and D models.

I never install the spring brake to depend on the chamber to hold enough air to keep it from applying I always plumb one to have a continuous air supply when released then if you have a leaking diaphragm it's no problem till you get it repaired, Brian the new engines can over power spring brakes any good driver should be able to feel the difference IMO

You are probably right Brian I saw a lot of those in the few 3208 I owned that blew head gaskets they would always bend the rod

Ramco support had me use black RTV silicone from Orillies. 

Yep that was it, couldn't remember the RTV part. They told me that is what they used at the factory. DK, be do know that it works and doesn't bleed through (as of yet  Grin).

Glad no one was hurt, Guys on the brake issue I have noticed in the past after applications if some springs are broke they get cocked some and release very slow and or not fully.
This has not been noticed on regular pre-checks or even could on the standard check along with yearly for that matter, most of the complaints are stated it pulls.
This situation I was taught to look at the opposite wheel for seal leakage and not able to do its job properly( just a step ) then move to other areas and components with testing. I agree weight and power can push the vehicle a pretty good distance. thanks great post
Good day

Cool! Thanks. This board needs more things like this. One day all of this accumulated knowledge is going to be gone unless we preserve it.

my first thought would be a spring brake applied to an improperly adjusted shoe...
