shutter parts

does anyone know where to find the plastic "feet" that the shutter paines fit on for a 75 R model? They fit into the steel brackets and allow the shutters to open or close.

New purchase 1961 B61 10 Wheel dump

Just purchased a 1961 B61 10 wheel dump. 20 sp, I think 711, Runs like a Swiss watch. Other than the junk rubber shaking you out of the drives seat, she drove home wonderful. I'm looking for a few things. The rubber 10x20 tube type needs to be addressed. Also looking for steering wheel and hood chrome. Last but not least, The truck is worth a full paint, The triple frame and dump have been sandblasted. Dropping the oil and coolant, Jim From Bethany CT

Granite 427 issue

Having an issue with my 427 after dealer installed new exhaust studs. The first time they started it, it blew an injector. They rebuilt injector but it only lasted 3 hours. Replaced injector, no power and engine sputtering.replaced all 6 injectors, no difference. Then dealer decided computer has gotten antifreeze in it from coolant sensor so they replaced harness and ecu. No difference. Got a super hot program from mack which actually helped a little, but still no power and low rpms (1200 to 160
