    Thanks to both of you for the comments. Wife and I have our house up for sale and cannot include the Mack in the next chapter of our lives. This is one of those choices that you do what you don't want to do in order to achieve what you have to do.
  5. That’s a midlife crisis device right there.... don’t mess up your E-Tech. Agree, it would be fun to stick one on a more needy engine like the AI to see what happens!
  6. I’m sure they have those basics covered... good 🍀 luck!

    Real straight looking truck, should be well worth the money. terry
  9. The green and black truck in the picture belongs fo a friend of mine. It is an LJ. He has had it for many years. The hard nose radiator may not be original, but it was on there when he got it. The truck has an early Cummins with a quadruplex. It was built as a single axle with a big 29,000 lb rear. Later the frame was stretched and a dead axle was added. Currently the truck has a newer set of Mack rears on a camleback suspension. The LJ doesn't get driven too much, another friend usually tows it to shows. The H model was made using the L sleeper cab. They are basically the same, but the windshield height is different.
  10. Thanks Mack Tech, cant say as is in shop but most certainly will ask if been checked. Cheers
  11. It's written overthere " It’s a W-71. Somewhat rare, certainly rare here on the island. This one came off a farm, has the extended cab for sleeper. Cab interior pretty rough but restorable. " Croatia is definitely not an Island, it's on the mainland. If you look over the 2nd picture you can see Freigtliner parked to the left of Mack. If you zoom you can read "comoxpacific.com" on its right door. And if you go to that website you will find that's a ferry company serving Vancouver island. https://www.comoxpacific.com/ Pretty interesting anyway.
  12. Looking for some ideas on a problem l have with a EA7 470 CCRS Motor in my 2004 Mack Qantum . All of a sudden fully loaded doing 95 kms/hr started missing and losing power, so stopped to check out for obvious problems around the truck and nothing seemingly wrong, turned engine off and restarted and ran fine on idle but as soon as power was applied back to missing again. Have had the truck in being sorted but cannot find a problem, have cracked injectors while running and all run rough once cracked so cannot identify a particular cylinder, power source to ECU is ok, cam angle sensor been checked and ECU connections gone over. Has any of you guys out there had this in this engine before or have experienced this in the workshop? Looking forward to any hints or answers to get back on the road again GAZZA.
  13. Similar saying for sheep farmers Big crappy day with those sunrises
  14. A great color and detail. There is a U30 tractor on ebay currently a little beat up and missing it's doors.
  15. I found this one in my internet travels. From what I can tell it appears it may be in Croatia. https://shufti.blog/2017/07/27/coe-mack-truck/
  16. The W model shown is now in Tony Champion's collection in Australia. That particular sleeper add on was done by Able of Los Angeles. I would say there are at least 4 different style of sleeper add ons to the W model by different body builders.
  17. Not much else to do in the bitter cold but snowmen and go see the Ice Disc
  18. Yep don't see them complaining about the real culprit, blacks selling blacks into slavery, oh that's right can't get crap out of a piss poor broke country.
  19. Not just a turbo but low to real low restriction manifold also, stock manifold has to much back pressure I was told to work with switchblade so they make their own manifold, spoke with Pete at Pittsburgh Power and they told me the same thing Blaylock told me and they are hoping to get a switchblade to try on their dyno, I think their manifold would be the answer to the AI problem. life gets better under Trump because people have money to do things like this.
  20. Orville Speciality Steel Company built most of the extended sleeper cabs out of the day cabs for all the east coast truck manufacturers during late 40's to 50's. I have a letter and pictures from one of the original employees (no 3) that I have been trying to find in my boxes so that I can post here. He was a WW11 vet and in his letter he described how they built the extended cabs. Hopefully can dig up the info soon
  21. I do like the KISS method being applied here, and would love to try out that setup, but dont know if I could get over that price tag. Having never had to buy a vgt though, that price might be on point.
  22. Speed sensor should be located on out put shaft of rear of transmission
  23. @tom1642 Can you take a picture of where your speed sensor is, i have the same problem with the speedometer i haven’t worked on a Mack before and I just don’t want to mess it up thanks
