  1. I think pai make almost every part for an e6. I will support them as much as I can.
  2. I'm disappointed by this news but not surprised. The modern truck driver is barely a man. Some of the silly things they complain about. Anyway, we here all have our old macks and that's what's most important, preserving a piece of Mack history.
  3. You know, I don't think most people would block sand that big of a job. But your going the whole 9 yards with it, and the results will be awesome. Just keep plugging away.
  4. Thanks Truck shop mate. When it was built I requested a brand new cylinder head for that reason. And they counter bored it for liner height. Which is why I'm wondering about the spacer plate if I should just get a new one.
  5. It's had a full rebuild, new head and injectors. Yeah this one has a steel spacer plate. When loaded up this would use 16l (4 gallons) of coolant in about 300kms. Unhitched my trailers and bobtailed home and didn't use a drop so it only using it loaded. It's warranty job but it's been in the shop for 2 weeks and they have to pull head off again.
  6. Having my own cat issues at the moment. Has failed bottle test after new head gasket. Is it common practice to replace spacer plate on c15 when doing head or rebuild?
  7. Haha, that's funny as. Sums up freightliner pretty well.
  8. I'd say that's a lot of guys dream truck. On the subject of twin air intakes, thomastractorsvc picked up one recently with them also. It really sets them off.
  9. How great is that! Hope you can post some pics of when it's finished.
  10. Good on Mazda. Electric vehicles are still a long way off and it's good to see a bit of r&d go into the internal combustion engine. Can is run on any fuel? Or does it need a higher octane rating?
  11. Happy belated birthday Paul. I'm not sure how I missed it, hope you had a great day.
  12. Is the truck 2nd from the left Kim kardashian?
  13. Looks great. A job well done!
  14. Would there be a difference between western Mack and typical Mack? A normal R chassis was wider at front so maybe engine sat a little lower? However maybe your Mack was on an R model chassis and my therory is debunked already...
  15. Back in the mid 90's my dad ran a 76 Kenworth with an 8v92 detroit. He upgraded to a 91 Mack with an e7 400. He saved $700 a week in fuel. Truck repayments were $2000 a month. It was a free truck!
