    The knee is healing and I am going stir crazy not working on my projects and dealing with my clients. Today I installed a pressure gauge into the existing port on the secondary fuel filer that is after the lift pump. I tried to start the truck and it cranked for a while then lit off but died I repeated this On the third try the batteries were getting really low so it was time to disconnect them and charge them. So much for today, tomorrow is another day

    Pushin snow...

    Our city uses front-end loaders (Cat 924 size) with plows in the old residential areas; but that Mack appears to be out in the country. Other cities use aggressive towing when it snows (ie. temporary no parking areas).

  7. Vlad, speaking of the NR, these are the most extreme conversions that I've ever seen (Holland and New Zealand). .

  9. Vlad, I may be wrong............ Founded in 1946 near the U.S. Army's Memphis, Tennessee supply depot, Memphis Equipment Company begin selling trucks like GMC CCKWs right after the war to construction companies. They used to run a full-page advertisement in a construction industry newspaper showing over 100 types of military trucks for sale. Included was "the mighty Mack NO" with enclosed cabs, exactly as you see above. I believe these NOs were brought back from Europe. But before being shipped, I suspect they had enclosed cabs installed in France. Labor was cheap there after the war, and many small companies were fitting hand-built enclosed cabs onto American surplus trucks. Just a guess, but many had these cabs. Here's another NO in American with an enclosed cab that appears French in origin. https://midwestmilitary.com/news/wwii-mack-no-sale-7900-00/
  10. Also, does anyone know what the torque setting is for the head bolts and the pattern? Mine's the B95 Thermodyne gas engine.

    Not only the Mack Museum but the America on Wheels museum in downtown Allentown. Everything from 1890 horses up thru the modern high dollar sports cars. It has many Mack trucks and cutaway parts. The 1910 Brockway owned by Mack.. One room showing a start to finish restoration.. I think there was some Andretti money involved in getting it started???

    Since Allentown is on the way, is the Mack museum worth a stop? Does anyone know how many trucks they have on display?

    To add to what Paul, 41 Chevy, said the Mystic Seaport near the Groton Sub museum on I-95 is a complete late 1800's whaling village with big sailing ships. And if you get on up into Maine there is the Erv Bickford Collection in Yarmouth.. Part of it is open 24/7 in the city park and the main display, restoration shop and storage yard is open with a phone call.. Right now I do not know if the late Daryl Gushee's New Glouster ME collection / facilities are open. A phone call would not hurt..

    Tom, It was great running into the "Redhead"!!! My surprise of the Day!! Complete with a big HUG!! She is definitely a keeper!!! Vlad, the man who hosts the show is an IH / Farmall farm equipment collector and has a small ranch with the herd of buffalo up near his house.. I think they were photographed as much as some of the equipment in the show.. I will post some more pictures in a couple of days after I get my camera downloaded..

    Shared that with my barber yesterday. Good thing he wasn't using the straight razor at the time.. he was laughing so hard I probably would have lost an ear.
  19. My 95 rd has the C channel bumper and the uprights, all in stainless. It looks sharp on that Hidden R. My 79 R has the same style bumper minus the chrome and uprights, plus a few scratches and dents. What style spot mirror brackets are those on the hood? I'm putting together an '88 R triaxle and it'd be nice to have spot mirrors up front.

    hard starting

    I had a 2001 etech 400 that would take longer than usual to start because the cam position sensor was bad. Did you grease the filter gasket before putting the new filter on?

    Odog, That redhead is a very nice lady. You should really try to hang on to her. I really enjoyed talking with her and I look forward to seeing the both of you at Macungie. The show was really nice also. Something for everybody to see and do.

    From what I can see the cab sits up higher which makes the fenders more flat, and it looks like the front axel is different. Other than that it does look just like and L.

    It looks similar to the L series. What made it a 'N' series versus being a 'L"?
