l feel like I have been neglecting you all but life is rather hectic just now. As for the truck there has been quite a few bits done by myself and my girlfriend. The winch has been stripped down and freed off, one of the fuel tanks has been removed as someone who shall remain nameless sanded a hole through it and got my drive covered in red diesel, the cab has been dismantled and it only leaves the floor and bulkhead, due to corrosion the injector pipes have been removed and sent away to be rene

good evening my friend. Just a quick update on the lfsw progress. Got it home and with a little bit of drama and I managed to get it running! first time in years. took the truck cab off. I am waiting on new injection pipes as the original ones were corroded through to fire her up again. Have had to put it on the back burner as I have a new job. its a tough life when you can't work on your own truck for working for others.
Unsecure cargos have caused many fatal accidents and this is a shame really because such accidents can easily be avoided by securing the cargo. All one needs to do, is use Truck Tarps to secure a truck's cargo to ensure it doesn't fall off in transit. Tarps not only keep the cargo secure but also keep it safe from inclement weather. This infographic takes a look at the use of Truck Tarps and the role played by them in reducing fatal truck accidents. Infographics Courtesy of MyTeeProducts
I have a 1954 Model B 42 that I have been working on over the past 10 years (way more off than on). I am at the point where I want to mount the Radiator onto the radiator support along with the grill and rubber seal. It has been so long ago since I took it apart I forgot where the rubber seal goes. It doesn't seem right that the rubber goes onto the support first, and then the radiator on top of the rubber, then the grill against the radiator brackets, then the special mounting bolts with the
Another productive day.... Once we got the engine a bit cleaner it was time to see what I have gotten myself into. Trying to turn the engine over by hand sucked so the starter came out without much problems (it is bloody heavy tho) as I had popped my 12v booster pack on it in the hope that it would turn over but no luck. Once on the deck and cleaned, Alex loves to pick and scrape off old paint and rust to find whats underneath we discovered that the starter was 24v so I doubled up my jumper pack
Day five............and six! It's been an eventful couple of days. Day five started with a phone call to say the crane was coming off the back of the truck, with the help of a Manitou. It started with burning off the bolts that held the crane onto the chassis and giving the crane a wee tug but the tow hitch was fouling it. A 70mm socket and a sledgehammer for a bit of gentle persuasion soon took care of that! The crane was removed and placed out of the way of estate traffic. The next job
Day four has been great. It started with the two front tires being inflated and holding air which after 30+ years being flat was a surprise. We had a huge list of jobs to do and we got them all done in great time. The prop shaft came off with no problem. All the nuts and bolts were nice and free. May have something to do with the hydraulic crane leaking oil all over them. As I have never worked on anything this size or age before I was not sure if I was going to need big tools but so far I have
Day three of the recovery: It was a fairly early start for day three. The mission for this visit was to remove tree and clear underneath. The tree put up a brave fight and was much taller than we thought but armed with only a bushman saw and a length of rope (needed to make sure the tree didn't fall through a building) we set about it. I decided to take the top off first so started just above the radiator cap and took out the thinner of the two trunks firs

Day two and it's time to dig ! After being parked up for more than 30 years (estimated by staff on the estate) we knew it was going to be a challenge to free the truck from it's resting place. With a car full of picks, shovels, hammers, saws and other assorted bits of kit we headed down for day two and starting to remove some of the things that had been placed on, under and inside the truck. There was a 1 foot mound of dirt that had built up along the

I have a 2000 Mack with an E7 engine. I have a new three piece exhaust manifold to put on truck. Does anyone know if there is an assembly joint compound or some kind of sealant that should be used between the pieces or should I put them together dry and let them rust together ?
I drive a mack rd 800, 400 half mechanical half electrical fuel pump and when in a pull going up hill with a load the fuel pump shuts off when the computer is trying to feel fuel. could anyone please help
Day one of my newest project and possibly the least eco friendly one of them all! To get this truck out and back to my house I'm going to have to cut down a couple of trees, remove the garden from the chassis and generally clear out 35 years of undergrowth and assorted rubbish! After clearing a tree, a welder, an enormous battery charger and the controls for the crane from the back the chassis is in remarkably decent condition. Maybe the flora and fauna over it protected it slightly! We manage
I am selling my 1975 Mack RS700L V8 end dump. Truck is in great mechanical condition. I'm unsure of the actual mileage being I just fixed my speedometer. I am the third owner of this vehicle. Both owners had their own work done to the truck for road legal repairs. Rear ends rebuilt in 2009 that I have documents for. A little about the truck. It's again a 1975 Mack. It has a 49,006LBS rear ends and 20,000lbs fronts. Brand new tires on the steers and first drive axle, and %75 and rear axle. The ve
