Timing #1 Cylinder to fuel pump

How do I set the #1 piston in the proper position to remove the American Bosch fuel pump so I can have it rebuilt? This is on a 1961 Mack B61 with END 673 engine that has been idle for about 30 years. Engine starts with starter fluid, but I am not getting fuel out of the fuel pump. How do I determine TDC for #1 and where do I need to have the piston for the fuel pump to be reinstalled to start the fuel feed to #1?.

2011 Mack LEU j1939 problem

I have a Mack LEU that the Mack Dealership couldn't fix, on a pretty new truck.
After the Variable Geometery Turbo (VGT) failed we had a new code pop up.
Data-link J1939 Can 2. Tech Tool said ACM offline due to J1939 Can 2 missing signal. The ACM was tested and works fine. the Turbo was installed correctly and calibrated. we tore apart the wiring harness for the ACM no faults were found. We checked all fuses. followed the twisted yellow and green Can 2 wires. We also broke open the sealed engine wiring harness by the turbo and it was normal as well. I need locations for the Terminating resistors. but also We found engine oil wicking to the ECU would this be the fault, or do i need to trace the entire J1939 circuit? any help is worth it thank you.

Replaced the Batteries as well

Jake brake help

Hi there I have an E6 350 with no engine brake, It is a 1985. I have an E7 blown up with jake brakes on it. Is it possible to install the Jakes off of my E7 on to my E6 350. Looks like everything would bolt up. I know I would have to change rockers and exhaust tappets I am curious about pushrods and adjustments if it would even work.
Thanks

Mack ED

searching for a vintage Mack ED 1938-1944. would like one in reasonably good shape. We have owned Mack's since 1974 and this seems like a interesting way to round out our experience with Mack.

1998 CH613

I've dumped so much money into my 1998 Mack CH613 and it once again needs something else that has a price tag of $2300.00. It needs a new or a rebuild of the Econovance unit (the thing attached to the front of the Fuel Pump unit). I would like to know what is the walk away point? Should I continue to throw in good money after bad? I was told by the Mack Guy's here in Houston Texas that Mack no longer manufactures Econovance units for my truck. It's not the first time I've been told Mack no longer makes parts for my truck and that I need to have a particular item rebuilt or find it elsewhere i.e., fuel injectors, fuel pump. In addition to finding it harder and harder to find parts at Mack, the items that are available are expensive, sometimes 2x more than that of their counterparts. I've literally had everything rebuilt, full engine rebuild including the heads, the fuel pump, a lot of new other parts. I'm frustrated and ready to walk away, I guess I'm trying to find a reason not to.

2002 Mack Ch613 won't start

I have a 2002 Mack Ch613 that was hit on the driver's side fuel tank and rear tandems. I replaced the tires and cap the tank. The truck ran one day and now won't start. I checked the fuel to make sure it is getting diesel all the way to the injectors. I had someone pull the codes and they said I had to change the crank sensor. The truck still doesn't start. If I spray some some starter fluid it will run but once that stops it shuts down. Any suggestions?

Eats coolant

I have a 2007 ctp 713 dump truck that will use 2 gallons of coolant a day, there is no sings of leaks, I have not had it pressure tested, but have checked the lines for cuts, bulges, ect. Not going into oil. I brought a piece of equipment to a local cat dealer and he said they had issues like that with their egr valves. Does mack use egrs? I called my mack dealer but conveniently they didn't get back to me because I was looking of info, not making an appointment. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.

Day Two: 11-20-14

Me, my dad, and my uncle met at Barnes Concrete to meet the low-bed operator who was going to pick up 'Mater. We were on the road at 7:25am. The trip was uneventful except for Barb crying at the sight of 'Mater being loaded up. With that, we were on our way back to Putnam, CT. When we got back to Barnes, we unloaded it and brought it right into their garage, where another of my uncles was working as head mechanic (my dad had also worked for the Barnes family driving trucks for 20 years before going into business in 1980 at the age of 34). Of course, a bunch of workers wanted to see the beast, and they came around to check it out. In the few hours we had that afternoon, we straightened out the ears on the body, scraped the melted mud off the tailgate and lifted it up with a forklift and pinned it in place. We also got the driver's window (faded plexiglass) to (sort of) work. Eventually both side windows will have to be replaced with actual glass you can see out of. We took turns trying to break up the thawing chunks of mud in the body, but didn't get very far with it. The power steering reservoir was also filled and we're hoping it works. We also found out it has a 711 for an engine. Not exactly rare, but no where near as common as the 673. Pics tomorrow.
