  1. On Christmas my family was over my house for the family get together. Well my father was like a kid in a candy store wanting to exchange gifts with everyone that night, mind you the youngest grandchildren are in high school and college or on there own. So first thing he does is give me the sign for my new Barn which I thought was great. Then he said there is more and everyone stopped and he gave me a small gift bag, In it was the title and all the paper work to his B-61 that is now mine. Surprised was an understatement for my reaction but touched by the gift. To me it's always his truck but it continues on in the family with my truck.

  2. Well Guys it happened about a month and half ago. I finally got my Cousins old Magnum. She needs alot of TLC but I don't mind. My cousin finally parked it do to the power divider going out of it and the frame is really really bad but I have a nice frame same wheel base for already. Out of 4 the Magnums that were in the family this is the last one. I would have posted it sooner but I've been busy on the Super Dog Dump and also been sick with the flew for about 2 weeks. I would like to find the proper Sun Visor for it like all the Magnums had new. Also this the identical twin to Tackaberrys Superliner Magnum. Tackaberrys is 001311 and mine is 001312. Both were sold by Ohare Mack new.Since I took these pictures I have put the original Mack emblems back on the hood as I like them better. Enjoy Guys.

  4. I been just reading on here since I do most stuff now on FB. So if we are friends there you probably have seen her. 1992 Mack Superliner RW713 E7 400, 15 Speed Fuller, rears have been changed out to 4.64, double frame, factory duel side mount air breathers. Truck has been parked since July 2016. I replaced the batteries and checked everything and she fired right up. Not sure what I am going to do with her yet meaning (dump truck or leave as a tractor) The previous owner took care of her really well. It seems to have several different paint schemes and the only rust is the bottom of the passenger side door under the washer bottle. The dash and interior panels are all in good shape. I have found a few minor issues things that I am going to fix- The air ride seat leaks down, the dip stick tube needs to be replaced it is missing a piece on the top of the tube and the dipstick when inserted all way does not cover it. The DS vent window is missing the latch. The cab mounts and other wear items like the shocks all seem to be fairly new. It had dual exhaust and I think I will switch it back. The truck will need paint and tires and my plan is to start on that after Christmas.

  6. This is it, the last full day of President Barack Obama’s tenure. As President Obama makes his way out the door like a drunk who has been tossed from a bar and is determined to smash every glass on his way out, it’s important to take a moment to reflect upon all the good he’s done while he occupied 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Yes, you read that right – thank you, President Obama. No man has done more to both discredit Democrats and elect Republicans than he has over the last eight years. More than 1,000 elected Democrats are now experiencing first-hand the joys of looking for work in the Obama economy, with roughly 4,000 more political appointees set to join them tomorrow. Were it not for Barack Obama, Democrats might still control the House and/or the Senate. Were it not for Barack Obama, some other Democrat might have replaced late Justice Antonin Scalia. Were it not for Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton may well have been elected president in 2008. Her email server wasn’t yet an issue, nor was her horrible record as secretary of state. And there’s every reason to suspect John McCain, who refused to bring up Rev. Wright, would’ve run an equally weak campaign against her. Whew, bullet dodged! Were it not for Barack Obama, Democrats with a Democratic president may well have worked with Republicans to pass watered down versions of his executive orders. Once something is codified in law it’s much easier to expand. Since Obama chose to ignore Congress, much of his “legacy” can be wiped from history with a signature from that magic pen of his, which Donald Trump will soon wield. Were it not for Barack Obama, many Americans still wouldn’t know just how big of a failure government is when it tries to run segments of the economy best left to the private sector. Many people who thought Obamacare didn’t sound so bad now personally know what happens when government tries to “help.” Hell, McCain may have tried to do some half-measure of the same failed plan, but Obama did it instead. Again, bullet dodged! Were it not for Barack Obama, Americans might not recognize the threat of radical Islam and the real danger of pretending it doesn’t exist. No Republicans, and virtually no other Democrat, would have insisted the attack at Fort Hood was “workplace violence” and not a terrorist attack. It’s likely only Barack Obama could have led a progressive chorus denouncing the Pulse nightclub attack as being about guns or homophobia when there was audio of the terrorist declaring he was doing it in the name of ISIS. No one else would have had the chutzpah. Were it not for Barack Obama, the media would not have been as exposed as the press release copy-pasting stenographer activists with press credentials they are. Millions more people would still believe they were honest brokers interested only in afflicting the comfortable and comforting the afflicted. Thanks to how far overboard they went to protect Obama, the blinders are gone and the throne-sniffers exposed. There is little doubt Republicans could not have made these gains and changes in national dialogue and perception on their own. The GOP is known for horrible messaging, bad campaigning and caving when the chips are down. With rare exception, they win only by default. Barack Obama famously said his ascension to the national stage would be viewed as “the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow.” That was aiming a little too high, but the tide sure turned. Yes, he did a lot of damage. But part of the beauty of the United States is our system was designed so perfectly by our Founding Fathers that it is difficult to take down, even from the seat of ultimate power. The debt was doubled, the military weakened, our leadership in the world and our reputation damaged, but we are still standing. No one would have suspected the greatest elector of Republicans the country has ever seen would be the most celebrated Democrat the country has ever known. For that, I want to say as you leave, “Thank you, Barack Obama.” Please don't let the door hit you in the a$$ on the way out.

  7. Turns out there's a lot more to this story- http://wset.com/news/local/man-charged-in-connection-to-deadly-mobile-home-fire-in-gladys The story going around here is that the man shot the women first, then set the fire to get rid of any evidence. I saw Gibson's Truck Parts in Cowpens, S.C. I've always wanted to stop there and look around. I could see the F model, a couple of B models, and a lot of other stuff from I-85. I saw a big Mack truck at exit 32 in S.C. too. Then I saw a lot of traffic in Atlanta. Here's the story- I unloaded a load of steel at N.B. Handy in Norcross Tuesday morning. I had a drop deck trailer so I could go to Monticello, Ga. and get a load of utility trailers coming back to New London Trailers in New London, Va. However, the trailer getting place was closed- all week- for the holidays. No problem, i'll just go to Spartanburg and get a load of skidded coils going back to Handy in Lynchburg. That was a lot easier than going to the middle of nowhere to get those trailers anyway, where they always try to get about 40 trailers loaded on you. So I drive 3 hours north to Spartanburg, and they will not load a drop deck trailer. I've loaded there before, and they load you from the side- you back in the door and keep the left side of the trailer as close to the wall as you can, the trailer floor is at dock level. I figured on the way up there that they would probably just set the coils on the edge of the dock and have me get in the other bay, over to the right, where they would have room for the fork lift to work, or just load them outside- which i'm sure they could have if they had really wanted to. Anyway, they would not load me at All Metals, so I figured on coming home empty. But they found a load in Carrollton, Ga. going to Mineral, Va. so I had to go all the way back to where i'd left from at 9am, and beyond. It was 1pm when I left Spartanburg- it took me three hours to get there from Norcross, took 5 hours to get to Carrollton. I got back to 285 right around 4 o'clock, and you know how that Atlanta traffic is... I picked up this big round thing at Southwire in Carrollton- good place to load, from the time I checked in to the time I was loaded, chained, and leaving- one hour. Waiting to unload in Mineral- Then I had to run a couple of mill roll rounds to Milton, W.V. I got my T shirt in the mail, but instead of wearing it myself for a picture I hired a model to wear it. She was really easy to work with- I just said "here, put this T shirt on and go stand in the pond." She said "duh...OK!"

  10. I ended up buying the truck mentioned above. Not from the guy that "restored" it, but from a fellow Mack enthusiast in Kalgoorlie that was hoping to put it back to work. Due to a growing business and mine sites being reluctant to allow a near 50 year old truck onsite, he had to let it go and buy a newer truck. It's far from restored. It's tidy on the outside and pretty much as it finished it career on the inside. She's a '68 F711-RST. Cross over steering shaft. Originally a long wheelbase rigid for Wrights Cattle Transport fitted with a C motor, quad box and 34,000 rear end. At some stage the wheelbase was shortened up into a prime mover, 44,000 rear end fitted with 6:34's. A 9sp over drive Road Ranger. The motor is stamped as a C, but it's actually a 237 Maxidyne. The original hard seat base on the drivers side (RHD) has been cut out and an old Mack suspension seat fitted in it place. I recently removed plywood additions to the centre console as most of the extra switches and gauges aren't connected. I also replaced the Push Pull Park Brake Valve as it was leaking profusely in the parked position via the foot valve. She holds start air for about 4-5 days and starts first go, even if parked for over a month. My short term goals are to tighten up the gear linkages, soften up the rear Spring packs and refurbish the semi custom cab suspension that was fitted at some stage. I also am hoping to fit a suspension seat for my lady... All the best Roland Sydney Australia

  12. Finally got the frame assembled enough to roll it under the tank body. It was a little challenging to do it by myself but thanks to my trusty tractor we accomplished it together. Now comes the assembling of the front suspension unit. May the force be with me.

  13. Of the Polish trucker who was murdered inside his tractor by a radical muslim shitstain who took his truck and committed a horrible act of terrorism in Berlin. A news story I was listening to quoted the trucker's boss as saying "He was a long time employee who was dedicated to his work, was good at what he did and enjoyed his work. He was also a family man and he will be dearly missed."

  27. Don't see anywhere in his post where he's advocating shutting down the EPA. Theme of this thread is simply reigning in a grossly out of control government agency. All of this fuss is being caused by three environmental groups, one of them being the Sierra club, suing the EPA for not forcing Fairbanks to comply with the Clean Air Act. Now the city is being pressured to act on it's residents and surrounding boroughs. As they say, crap rolls downhill. Another case of liberals poking their noses into business that doesn't concern them. I've spent allot of time in Fairbanks and the North Pole and I can guarantee nobody up there is whining about air quality. People up there don't want anything to do with the lower 48 and the nonsense that goes on down here.

  29. Winter wonderland pictures- these are on rt. 219 in W.V. Load of sheets I took to Charlotte- I saw an airplane too. Reloaded in Spartanburg- it was much warmer in Spartanburg than it was on rt. 219 in W.V. Be careful out there- when my shed burned up it made me realize just how quickly things can happen. This is just up the road from here- Merry Christmas everyone!

  35. We saw Santa Clause. Extra Small was highly unimpressed. We saw the actual chart track of the USS Nautilus SSN 571 first voyage under the Arctic Ice Cap. I saw a super rare picture of a Jevic Cabover Freighliner Condominium. These had the second-generation 3406B ATAAC's and 13 speeds. We saw (Hell- we went on board the USS Nautilus SSN 571- the first nuclear powered submarine and the first sub to ever transit under the Arctic Ice Cap from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean. I don't know how the order of the pictures got screwed up, I think it's Otherdog's fault. Here is a close-up of the track chart. I saw my father get a little emotional while telling Large a story- My father was an IC Electrician 3rd USN (USS Seneca ATF 91) and part of his job as an IC Electrician was to run the movie projector and to obtain new movies. Here, he is telling Large the story about how he went aboard the USS Thresher SSN 593 and swapped movies with their IC. About 2 weeks later on 10 April 1963, the Thresher and all hands were lost at sea with all hands. We are all standing in the Crew's Mess aboard the Nautilus and Dad saw the movie projector and it brought back the memory. As he told the story to Large, I could hear him getting upset. Here is the prime rib which I prepared New Year's eve. Normally we have it New Year's Day but SWMBO had to work.

  41. Don't forget about the millions of acres of public land that burns up every year in the lower 48 since logging has basically been outlawed just like coal. Better to let it burn rather than make a useful product that could be sold or used.

  42. What "bait" is that? The fact that your side fails to abide by the Constitution, imagining new powers into it every day while at the same time turning a blind eye to the actual text of the document? Or perhaps your undying support for anyone looking to increase governmental control over the daily goings on of as many individual citizens as possible? Maybe it is just your disdain for anyone with the testicular fortitude to say "ENOUGH!" and insist upon their representatives abiding by the Constitution? Whether it is Obamacare (which has NEVER had a majority of support in ANY poll), abortion, illegal immigration, or any number of issues, the Democrats are not only on the wrong side of the Constitution and our founding principals, but also on the wrong side of the American people! This is WHY Democrats have lost 1000 or so seats in governorships, state legislatures, county boards all of the way down the ballot to dog catcher. Gone are the days of JFK telling folks to "Ask not what your Country can do for you, but what you can do for your Country!" Now, the Democrats are all about greed. They seek power, and will promise anyone everything under the sun in order to get it..."free" health care..."free" phones..."free" whatever else somebody might desire (but be too lazy to actually want to WORK for). Or have you forgotten the people in the news talking about "Once Obama is elected, I won't have to worry about making my mortgage payments, or putting gas in my car..." They voted for him expecting all of that stuff to be paid for...and he tried. More debt added under Obama than by every single one of his predecessors COMBINED. JFK would be booted out of today's Democratic party faster than the blink of an eye...and that's a shame. When one side of the aisle is hell-bent on "fundamentally changing" everything about this Country than has allowed it the success and prosperity we have enjoyed...and the other side sits on their hands and ALLOWS it to happen for fear of being called "racist" because the POTUS happened to be 1/2 black, well we end up in a situation where the world is on fire. Friendly regimes have been overthrown and extremists have taken their place. Allies have been betrayed and our enemies have stopped taking us seriously. I really do hope the GOP follows through with their threat to withhold ALL funding to the UN until that recently passed anti-Isreal resolution is repealed. Obama was a fool for allowing the US to abstain from that vote allowing it to pass...but then what else would you expect from a community organizer who voted "present" more often than not in the state house? Obama was a joke, but nobody is laughing. Now, he's going to do the unprecedented...sticking around to make his successor's job as difficult as possible. Real classy people them Obamas. Whatever. January 20 can't get here soon enough.

  44. Hello everybody, My name is Philippe Mathurin. I'm 63, in retirement since last spring. I'm french and living in Normandy ( France ) I have a passion for old trucks and i own 2 lorries ( british ) that i have restored in the previous years: A 1965 Bedford TK 6 tons and a BMC ( Austin Morris ) FG 3,5 tons. For another project, my wife wanted a Mack R or DM but i failed to find one in reasonable condition affording to my pocket book. Finally i have discovered the rare gem: a F786T with some rust in the cab but mechanically sound. A great day for me. Unnecessary to say that i will need the knowledge of the members of the forum in the coming years I will send picture and serial numbers soon. Sorry for mistakes in language. Happy Christmas, Philippe.
