It sounds like an exhaust valve is sticking it doesnt smoke just a thump thump thump sound out the exhaust along with a miss only happens after stopping from a hard pull it will still miss if you keep on going but stop it and let it go to idle then you hear the thump thump
The best riding cabover.iv'e ever driven was an 85ml600 mack single axle spring ride ,much better than new air ride internationals. Strangely spec'd truck 300 6 speed with lo hole.probably used as a mini wheeler dump.Down here in gator country you are allowed 44000 on an axle group.therefore you can haul 73280 on at tandem trailer and a single axle tractor.I pulled a 50 aluminum drop deck used as a hotshot.the mack had little air bags. On the cab.
Some of you May have seen the beautiful
Red b75 for sale in Washington state the radiater looks similar to the tanker in question. Kinda bizarre I'd rather have that mack than any 100k street rod I can think of! And I dig street rods!
Not an expert on the frames but Mr Hancock made it all clear! Now I know why mack and Broadway shared cabs for so many years.international,Hendrickson,diamond t(my list truck) and I think Hayes and federal shared cabs too. I could be wrong but I think Marmon had its own unique sheet metal.fascinating!
Jeezus............rub your belly and tap your head and PRESTO it is in Reverse. WTH???? Why do they make it SOOOOOOOOOOOO freak'n complicated. Does Rube Goldberg work there?

Have you EVER had to hold a door open to aide in parking or backing up to something? Guess that is out of the question now. Thanks.
Those of us who actually drove over the road know they took a lot of liberties with tractor types in convoy! Looks like some Hollywood type went to a truck auction and bought the cheapest trucks he could find.that r model day cab with the "kangaroo guard" looks like an oilfield truck
