  1. Past hour
  2. Today
  3. I had to delete some images in my old posts to get avalible room for new ones. The most of those which looked important were not deleted but resized to tiny scale. But that involved some job and doesn't lean me to posting much in the future. Just one more thing you have to track in your mind.
  4. Hi I 2008 mack mp8 with 650000 having problems with regen issues have no fault codes active for engine . Have new vgt actuator new egr valve check 7th injector is flow test found at 8lpm checked the diff pressure sensor check port found ok . Check the intake manifold pressure sensor found ok boost pressure sensor found ok. I perform regen on process the engine is start to surging at 12000 rpm the exhaust temp 1 is 300 temp 2 250 temp 3 220 any idea what this wrong
  5. If your hitting 33 psi of boost then it’s probably not a derate issue due to emissions emissions. Good running MP engines run 33 to almost 40 psi boost. I’ll message for more info.
  6. no,that was the standard interior for the Cruiseliner
  7. Ever get any answers? I'm having a very similar problem
  8. On the other side of that one is the 8341 spicer I was going to run with it.
  9. Not exactly sure what it is other then an Eaton. the tag is missing on that one. Has a #2 bellhousing, think it’s a 14” single disc clutch, was out of a f800 I think. Had a 5.9 in front of it. Was going to use with my 8.3 until I found the rto6613
  10. all the R models I ever saw were down, most every B model was down but I have seen some factory pics of B models with the handles horizontal also
  11. Really hoping someone can help me solve this problem because I've lost faith in my Mack dealer and we have dumped A LOT of money into this truck already! I'll try to give as much information as possible but if I miss something feel free to ask. Truck is a 2016 CHU613 with an MP8 505HP 18spd. We bought the truck 5 months ago with just over 100,000 mi. The truck was a repo unit owned by a local bank and was set to go to auction but we ended up buying it before that happened. Now the problem, truck has what seems to be a good amount of power in low range, but in high range (or at highways speeds) you can mash the pedal and the truck won't move out of it's own way. On a fairly good size incline at 65mph with an empty 48ft flatbed, the truck can't even maintain it's speed, let alone accelerate. My 05 Pinacle with an 18spd will accelerate up the same hill pulling a 40,000 lb load. The truck idles smooth and runs great at low speeds, checked the boost gauge yesterday on local roads and its showing around 33psi at full throttle This truck has been to the dealer twice, it had some minor oil leaks and they replaced a bunch of gaskets (not quite sure which ones because our shop mechanic has the write up) and they've replaced all of the injectors and injector cups. They also said the truck may have been "derated" because the EATS was throwing fault codes and the truck was not going into regen. After many failed attempts by the dealer, they were able to finally force a regen, but the performance is the same. We are at almost $20,000 in dealer charges and the truck still has no top end power! I'm at a loss, and we've dumped so much money into this paperweight that getting rid of it is not an option. To date we have pulled 4 loads with this truck, PLEASE HELP!
  12. If you find that B, you have to take pictures before you move it!
  13. And thanks for your input folks. I appreciate it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Update in case anyone needs or wants the info. Ended up pulling the front head to unstick number 2 exhaust valves, replaced 2 bent and one broken pushrod. Oil filters had aug 2011 marked on them, air filter housing packed with chaff and dust. Not just filter, entire housing. Packed. Fuel filters rusted on, took a 3’ chain wrench to pull them off. Re assembled, set valves, new oil and all filters, new fuel return line from head, primed and started nice. Still a bit of a miss but likely an injector. Much better than before. The 3 cylinders I saw were badly glazed, the top end was pretty gooey, a nice sludge in the pan too. I cleaned what I could get to. I’m worried about the turbo long term. Carbon filled a lot of the hot side turbine clearance, it really should have been torn down and rebuilt too. Neat little motor though, nice to work on, tidy valve train, stout and well thought out bottom end, I like the main bearing cap design-and you can’t really go wrong with an inline Bosch pump. I don’t think I’d turn a good one down if I had to go truckin’. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. BCR Al, is this rig still out in your neighborhood? Specs? Info?
  16. I really don't know much about the LH model. Built between 1940-1953, they did seem to be set up for highway hauling out west. I haven't seen one with an integral sleeper or running on spoke wheels. There may be a sleeper out there or spokes, just haven't seen it. Power was a Mack EO 519, Mack 707 or Cummins. Also seem to be tandems which is why I asked if the VIN was LHSW. SW and 2D indicate tandem rear suspension. Wish I had more info for you. Have fun with your project!
  17. if you look closely you can see the "short door" on the driver side that opens above the fender platform. the door ends at the lower hinge.
  18. Yesterday
  19. I never knew Ford made a narrow cab steel hauler.. Must have a roof top escape hatch with the crane unit behind the cab???
  20. Looks like it says both LHSW and LH2D. Nice truck either way, and a 3 stick trans. Awesome find.
  21. Looks like it is a LHSW, Can you tell me what’s unique about the “H” models in the L series? I’ve read “The L-Series trucks usually had a sleeping compartment with a low roof. Basically, these trucks were delivered to the West Coast, where the quality of roads was awful, and the terrain was full of steep climbs and descents. Such trucks had a cabin trim made of aluminum sheet to reduce the total weight. The LF and LH models were light variants in the range” on TrucksPlanet.com. Other than that I’m struggling to find much.
  22. DOWN! Sure as shiitt if your like me you'll get hooked on something getting out. Hanging there in mid air trying to get loose! l'm damn good friends with a guy called Murphy. .....Hippy
  23. Another Ball. Its a little dirty . Been in the shop for a long time . I don't play golf. It was given to me .
