If you have never been there put the America on Wheels museum in Allentown PA on your list.. Covers a little bit of everything from horse and buggy to modern high dollar sports cars with a lot of Mack stuff in between. I think Mack's 1910 Brockway is there? Mack cutout drivetrain parts, one room describing a restoration, and the time I was there, the day after Thanksgiving, a model railroad club had one room full of a big set up.
It has happened that my current affairs got me to New Jersey. Some used BMW spare parts go to Russia on a constant basis but lots of come broken and so. The recipient wasn't happy with the fact and knowning my addiction to everything used and rusty plus my experience visiting the US made me an offer for a inspection voyage. Actually I was paid for the plane tickets having a week to spend for reasons I want. So so far I'm at my friend's place in NJ. Unfortunately he's going to departue to Mexico for vacation with a family and I have a feeling of potential nothing to do. This kind of situation is not typical to me and I already started building plans for the nearest few days. Going to visit Matt Pfahl's shop on Tuesday. The further part of the week needs more work out and taking to account Thanksgiving on Thurthday I found myself open for ideas. What would you guys recommend me to visit in the area of NY-NJ or Easter PA? I even look for a chance to keep anybody's company to put hands on an old Mack truck if someone is going to spend the long weekend in his shop. No income interest, just involvement and accomodation.
On a Mack when installing a reman engine and the original has a rear sump and the reman has front sump we just swap pans, oil pump pick-up and dipstick locations. I would imagine it would be the same for the Cat engine. New pan gasket, oil pump pick-up seals/gaskets.
Great, I still need a small M
I made progress with the DMV today. In and out in 30 minutes with a temporary registration, Sacramento will mail the historic plates to me soon.
Now to reinstall the ignition switch.
Is it normal for a truck with an air ride cab to have the exhaust stack bolted to the cab?
Is it normal for there to be a band clamp connecting the flex pipe to the exhaust pipe under the cab?
I also need to fix the air ride seat, its loosing pressure when I sit on it
I have a 1988 Mid-Liner. I believe it is a CS300. It has the six cylinder Renault in it . Between the second and third cylinder it is leaking something I'm not sure if is coming from the valve covers or lower, I'd guess lower.It sounds like a air leak but it has a rhythm. It gets much quite as the truck warm up.There is some oil in the area. Anyone have an idea ? Thanks Tom
Just wondering if you knew anything about the truck accident on the ramp of I77 last Thursday. He had a load of slit coils on and they ended up in the back of his bunk. I was just curious what happened.
Just a newbie who bought a farm wagon built on an old Mack truck frame. It has 20 inch Dayton style wheels. Eight spoke hubs with 4 lug nuts per hub. Single rear wheels. The 3rd member has been removed from the rear end. It has mechanical brakes which still work . Depending on the cab configuration it may accept a 10-12 ft. bed. Any ideas what model this was? I'm guessing 30s but have no clue. Also has all 4 small Mack hub caps
