OT: 1999 GMC T7500

Now I have something to tow my forklift with or at least I will when I make time to get it set up. Cat/Allison drivetrain with air brakes 32k GVWR. 90k miles. Right and left hand drive. A toggle switch selects which side is in control. Bizarre.
Having a 28' rollback is dangerous.

Left AND Right hand drive.
I am guessing it was either a Sweeper, or a Garbage Truck, eh?

That's the engine & transmission and yes, Mel it was a sweeper.
I'm curious to find out how the toggle switch works. When you switch it the steering and throttle quit working on one side or the other but both steering wheels always turn. The throttle is probably by wire so that isn't surprising but I can't guess how the steering works.
