EGR Emissions Delete

New to this. Have a 2004 Mack with a 460 ASET, pretty sure it's the AC because it has the EGR cooler. Been have some problems with it and are pretty sure that it is the EGR valve and possibly the cooler. I know that with the 08 and new you can delete the emissions but i can not find a way to delete them on the ASETs. Was wondering if anyone knew how or where to go to get it done. Any help would be great. Thanks.

2002CL700cammel back replacement

We are starting to replace the cammel back spring on a quad dump truck. The labor cost at the mack dealer is $2600.00 and $2400.00 parts to replace springs and all hardware. Is there any tricks to doing this job or anything a fella should know before starting.

Dash

The plastic tabs that hold the inserts in the center dash are breaking off on my RD688S. Is there a way to repair it without replacing the dash? Or is there an aftermarket dash or insert I can put in there?

E7 350 Engine Won't Start on Mack CH613 after Repair from a Major Accident

One of my Dump Trucks was involved in a major frontal collision. The front bumper, Hood, Rad, and Driver Side steering arm were damaged. Otherwise, no other visible or mechanical damage was observed. The Mechanic believes all mechanicals have been repaired but the engine would not start. We have two different electricians have a go at it and nothing has been found. One thing that was noted is that there is no current to the Injectors (Electronic Unit Pumps - EUP). The engine is an E7 350 with El

TV show shipping wars

I was watching shipping wars on tv, and I am confused. Except for one fellow with a tractor trailer, no one seems to worry about logs, gross weight they can haul, time behind the wheel, etc., in other words, all the things I concern myself with. I watched as folks with one ton pickups and tag along trailers bid on 30,00 pound loads and other "interesting" things. Are the rules different for hobbiests and hot shot trailers? Anyone else think this seems wrong?

Noise Reduction to CL 713

We have a 1995 Mack CL 713 that we are rebuilding. We want to install a noise reduction rear motor mount like is often done to the CH model. We are having trouble finding the frame side brackets that will match up to the bolt pattern on the CL frame. Has anyone done this modification to their CL?
