  1. Past hour
  2. Right-and I dont see how those economics work. Another disruption to the Cummins production line I would imagine to paint them silver and tweak them however Paccar wants? takes me back to the late 60's when Cat designed the 3208-with I believe some Ford money??-and it started life as a Ford exclusive. But this is different. International is taking those same engines and sticking them in the MV-red color and all I believe. I would have to think they are getting a better price than Paccar. seems like a Hollywood movie set to me....open the door and there is nothing in back of it🙄
  3. 200 rpms is either direction when splitting. If at 1600 revs you want to split down: hit the button down, then you need to tap the throttle, let off to break torque, then throttle up to 1800. I'd say that 1600 is a little high to be down splitting, but can't say for sure what you are trying to do.
  4. Classic look of a northeast Autocar.
  5. All States Asphalt based in Sunderland, MA on a local road chip seal project.
  6. Today
  7. Who would pay $$$$ for a truck that was rolled over onto a 4 year old who became a reanimated, murderous, mini-zombie...… unless it was a Mack Superliner.
  8. No. Nor China. ZF took most of Eaton’s global market share.
  9. Mack Nit gudday m8 the easiest way to drive the mack 18 wen the engine is up to operate n temp in each gear run it upto the govonor ...... then change up take note of wot the rev counter sez after the change this is the same rev U would change down @ if run n down hilld deduct a cupla hundred revs to allow for over run cya
  10. luckily i was able to find the owners manual and it explained a lot. what it doesn’t say is at what rpms to split at. say at 1600 rpms, i want to down split, do i hit the button down while on the throttle? or off then hit it? i tried a bunch of different ways and it didnt work either way for me. is 1600 to high or should i be down splitting around 1400?
  11. This Truck been coming knowledge to big movie prop and artifact collectors for 20 years. Didn’t know he was selling it. How much just wondering. Christine better. A close friend bought it right before they were going to destroy it.
  12. It’s not for sale. People have known about for 20 years.
  13. Normally the delivery valve is removed and a old holder and old cut injector line are used. The "dump" tube method is used to check timing this way. This can be done with compressed air and a glass jar with water in it. When the flow goes to a bubble using air that is port closure. Using fuel and a little pressure the flow will go to a drop. I have not heard of setting timing with the #1 delivery valve in place by just turning the pump to get pressure and flow. I can say it is over 1000psi to open a delivery valve. There are other ways to check timing on a Bosch pump but it is done with a timing light tool. Most Mack engine manuals have a few pages on the different ways to set timing as well. Hope this helps.
  14. Does Eaton sell many transmissions in Europe anymore? Seemed like a lot of Eaton transmissions got installed in the British trucks, but now that they're gone...
  15. Just wondering how much pressure is required to open the delivery valve when checking pump timing without removing the delivery valve, pressure and flow. Does anyone have any specs on the pump system that Mack dealerships use to use, thanks for any replies.
  16. No different than their "PX" range of Engines.. They're just Cummins Engines painted Silver.
  17. Showing someone drive a fuller 18 is worthless on learning how to drive a Mack 18, better shooting yourself in the head. read the book and hope you learn, and I say hope, I think a triplex or quad was easier or at least consistent, I really like the 4 reverse but the rest I can live without, and yes I drive one everyday and with bigger loads than most people and still don't like it, one good thing about the Mack 18 is when super hero steering wheel holder shows up and we let them take a spin, fun to watch them walk off talking to themselves. I 'll post pics. of loads going to Juarez MX, great fun, night time is real eye opener, 150' long and 10' wide right downtown, overhead crane beams.
  18. So trans is Eaton? as Maxidyne says. Less than honest spin by Paccar
  19. Thank all of you guys for your help. I really appreciate all of you taking the time
  20. Russia's new nuclear submarine Belgorod was launched at Sevmash submarine making factory in Severodvinsk on April 23. The submarine will be the first carrier of Russia's new ominous weapon - the Poseidon underwater drone. The underwater vehicle can be equipped with both conventional and nuclear munitions to strike aircraft carrier groups, coastal fortifications and infrastructure. The submarine and the Poseidon drones will undergo tests for two years before they can officially join the Russian Navy. The Poseidon underwater drone is capable of carrying nuclear and conventional munitions at large depths at a high speed. The Belgorod submarine is a revised project of Antey 949A multi-purpose nuclear submarine similar to the Kursk nuclear-powered sub. Military experts believe that Russia can use the Poseidon underwater drone only in the event of nuclear aggression against Russia as a retaliatory strike. The drone is very hard to detect as it can travel at large depths and build unpredictable routes.
  21. Yeah it’s got to have it. I tried to make it work without it but it just won’t clear enough to start the nut. 41 Chevy that link is what I needed. I ordered it and should have it Tuesday. Thank you sir, if we ever meet up the first couple rounds are on me
  22. $275,000 to $300,000 Classic cars have always been a hit among auto enthusiasts, and that group includes the classic Ford Bronco. California-based startup Zero Labs Automotive decided to create an all-electric version of that iconic vehicle, or to be more specific, it’s a fully restored and re-engineered original Bronco, complete with aerospace grade carbon fiber bodywork, handcrafted walnut / bamboo interior panels, premium leather, a retro-styled digital gauge cluster and more than 1,000 newly-designed parts. Two caveats: it’s expected to cost between $275K – $325K and limited to just 150-units worldwide. Read more for two additional videos, pictures and information. It’s powered by a 70 kWh lithium-ion battery that is compatible with Level 2 charging feeding a 360 hp permanent magnet AC motor for a driving range of 190 miles on a full charge. The electric motor is paired with a five-speed manual transmission that sends power to a part-time/full-time four-wheel drive system. “The Bronco’s off-road prowess is further enhanced by the Currie front and rear differentials, an adjustable Fox coil over suspension, and Brembo six-piston caliper brakes. The electric Bronco is also fitted with digital telematics, a digital gauge cluster that sticks to the original design, and CAN network. All vehicle diagnostics and controls are placed behind a hidden screen and can be viewed on the user’s smartphone".
  23. Read operators manual; you can get it from google; Mack trans are different from Eaton
  24. Hello, I am working on my 48 EF and am in need of a drivers side window regulator, drivers side door latch and a stock exterior mirror bracket. If anyone has a source or a name that I could contact it would be appreciated. Thanks, Brent
  25. If you still have the bed PM me some pics and exact measurements and I might take it off your hands.
