I just "inherited" a truck that I know absolutely nothing about.
Somehow, I wish that was unusual, but it's not. I've never even seen it.
As a compensation for a Mack engine that I bought from a local company that had a cracked block
which was unknown to me or the former owner, I have been given a Mack DMM-800, less the rear ends.
The truck has a brand new Mack certified 350 hp engine and an Allison ---750 transmission and a retarder
(once again - I don't know anything about it).
So - now with Jimmy retired - he's thinking that this might be a good candidate for his "retirement heavy tractor".
Doesn't everybody need one of these? And don't you like how he just assumed ownership.
We have a customer that he has moved buildings for, for thirty years. They have several DM-800's with the rear-ends intact. Those trucks are pretty much shot, but the rears are alright - sooo....
The building movers are in a little bind with Jimmy threatening to quit for good - can you smell the wheels of creation turning?
