    • Amazing... just picked up a crooked gold dog.. now I know its legit!
    • Carl,  The “C” in the pic (212) was totaled in an accident while running a 42 Box. It occurred about 4-months into the 1-year wait for the 4-Pirsches Oxon Hill had on order. To fill the gap they bought a CF demonstrator which went to 42 to run as the wagon (days of 2-pc Eng. companies) They moved 42’s pumper 53 Mack to 21 to run as pumper which later served Lake of the Woods and unfortunately is just wasting away somewhere near Culpeper last I knew. The Pirsch in the bay was Oxon Hill’s TDA. The pic of the CF was taken shortly after delivery on the ramp at 42 and prior to being Gold Leafed.  The CF was later purchased by the County and saw a great deal of action a Chapel Oaks, 38. Here are a couple of pics I have gathered off the internet of these pieces. Amazing how well the Federal Q has held up over the years. 
    • IMO Uma throws an unspoken clue on why everyone became "raped" in October/November 2017. $Money$. Public centerpieces have to choose between becoming potentially unpopular or to continue racking in millions by being a good, quiet, zero controversy, hire. Bigger money actors will start coming out of the closet when they believe it is popular, and happening frequently, to the point their career and cash is safe from damage. Nigeria pointed out women are regarded as less attractive after the rape is unearthed.......If an actress loses her "sex appeal" in the public eye (post rape) she loses her $$$$ + career too.   
    • As Terry indicated, the gold dog came with the Maxidyne program. Here is some further discussion that started with more modern uses of the gold dog. https://www.bigmacktrucks.com/topic/38273-gold-dog/  
    • When did 21/42 trade the C model for the Pirsch's? It was gone when I came on the scene in 1971. (It looks like the Pirsch is in the background)
    • My home town Clockers (Ashland) lost 35 to 33 to the Hillers (Hopkinton). Oh well its good training for the coming Red Sox season. It was still a great Thanksgiving though. For all of the MA transplants out there here is a run down of the Thanksgiving day games; http://www.bostonherald.com/sports/high_school/high_school_insider/2015/11/thanksgiving_day_football_scoreboard
    • Thank you.  Original style would be good but  I am having difficulty finding any contacts for reproduction AC parts.  Is there something I am missing?   Jack

      Boost pressure wont build over 30lbs on aset 460. Do see the green wire has some wear through but i wrapped in electrical tape for time being. 
      But the reason im asking is i have a 3-2 code with if you push mode and reset at same time on dash is 5022-02 m128. Code means engine speed sensor but which one. I just replace both 2months ago and i only have one spare and hoping its not the bellhousing bc its a bitch. Also can it feel like truck is in limp mode.
      Still kinda new at understanding mack.but im some mechanically inclined
