These pictures were taken at the FMCA 86th Family Reunion Rally in Madison, Wisconsin. Seen is the 2012 40PDQ Holiday Rambler Ambassador. Throughout this rally event, temperatures were somewhat below normal in the mid - to high 70s. During the week prior to our arrival, temperatures were in the 90s with high humidities. We could not have had better weather than was enjoyed during the week of the reunion rally. The rally was held at the Alliant Energy Center.

Jason demonstrating the dynamic forces that act upon the wrist pin and how those are overcome.

MaxxForce pistons are machined cold to accommodate the distortions of expansion after they get hot. The wrist pin for example is not straight line bored but slightly arched so that the mass acting on the wrist pin is equally...
