Well, I feel old this week.
I fell down on the ice two weeks ago - a real classic, total surprise, feet straight in front of me, airborne crash.
For a couple of days, I felt fine. Then all of a sudden, I became a cripple for about a week. Had to cancel my
trip to Lake Placid this week (work) because a six hour car ride was definitely out of the question.
It's getting better - but real slowly it seems.
Anyway - because of the new found time in my schedule, I went searching for all of the seals and bushings
for my B-67 rear axle and brakes. All of these parts are obsolete from Mack.
What an education. And - surprise - total success!
Found an excellent local Mack parts guy at the dealer, after a disappointing first meeting.
And got some stuff from Barry at Watts. And FleetPride is in the mix too, for relining the brake shoes.
Whatever parts the local dealer (Beam Mack) could not get, they supplied me with a list of dealers nationwide
who showed that particular part in inventory. List was complete with contact names and phone numbers. Nice!
So, by Monday we should be back in action with the rear end assembly.
And, maybe I'll be able to move by then, too.
