    just acquired a 1961 G-75 LT with ENDT 673 engine, and triplex trans. what kind/weight of oil should I use? thanks for your advice!! thinking of rotating engine with starter with fuel shut off, for a few times and hope to see oil pressure, over a week or so. then changing oil and fuel filters and hopefully starting the girl. any other suggestions? existing fuel in tanks looks clear and clean.

    Since OtherDog has been lacking lately, I offer the following: Some members of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chapter of the ATCA were invited to attend "Club Day" (sunday) at Das Awkscht Fescht held annually at Macungie Memorial Park (yes same park.....) I saw a Mack heavy haul tractor, a mini-mack, an FWD Firetruck and a Super Mack. I saw some kind of import car, a Fiat or a Porsche or something, I don't know those cars too well. I saw some other kind of an import. It was silver in color. I saw a Super Mack, too. And some guy's head. It may be 39babymack, I am not too sure. Another import of some kind. It was baby shit yellow. I saw all of these winfall wimmin at some other event, they wanted me to give them a ride, but I didn't have time, I had to go meet OtherDog for supper. I made them pay me to be able to pose with me in this picture.

    After finishing my B 61 I started looking for a new project . Wanted an H model but could not find what I wanted although Superdog had one I thought was priced right but needed more work than I wanted to get into. Raybing posted a F 797 from Craigslist a few months back. Thanks Raybing . The truck was located in Missoula MT. at a Mack dealership. I called with no intent to buy . The salesman asked what I was thinking so I thru out price not expecting to be accepted . A few hours later he called back and accepted my offer . Had the truck delivered to New Mexico. I think I am over my head again as there is lot of things on the truck I am not sure about . I am sure there will be a lot of help here as always .

    We all live in different neighborhoods but it is going to be HOT everywhere this weekend! Amber recommends staying hydrated and hanging out by the pool.

    Mack makes a great truck and this is the site for people who like them, I literally grew up in Mack trucks so I keep going back to them, my first Mack was a B61 with factory sleeper, 673 and triplex, single axle with tag, last new Mack was a Granite with a 460 from the Mack dealer in Montgomery NY, Great truck no power, would have to split a gear just to make it over small rise on the interstate, it did not stay around long, this is a great site for help with problems, also great place to be reminded why you don't want to buy a new truck, I like the pictures and the stories, as much as I like the my Macks I hate the transmissions, great little motors, really well built truck just bad trans, but that comes from our experience and some others do fine with them, that's great for them. Odds and ends is great because on this site the intelligence level might be a little higher than some other places, but if you don't like what you read don't read it, reminds me of the pastor who went and watched a certain porn movie and then went around telling people how bad it was, when you find people who do not speak or debate subjects you tend find people who cannot figure out how their 14 year old daughter got pregnant, those that want to do away with threads that do not match their thoughts are the ones who cannot debate their ideas because they know they are wrong but continue to live in their own dark little closet trying to convince themselves they are right. If positive comments about Trump bother someone they should not read it, fact still remains that Trump has done a great job for this country and Obama was the worst which makes Carter feel great. If you’re a man that's grown a vagina than maybe you should get a vaginaloptomy and grown some man stuff, you might see things in different light. BMT is great, I hope those that are missing are fine, some people have problems and like to keep to themselves, some need support from others. MAPA- Make America Poor Again, Vote Democrat

    It's been a while but I haven't taken many pictures, and all i've got is corn and wimmens. I did write a caption on a picture I saw in the paper though. Nice looking corn in Indiana. A big Mack truck with a huge oversize load. A girl in a car. And here we have another girl in another car. I was stopped in traffic here, didn't know what was going on. I tried to zoom in with the camera to see if I could see what the issue was, but I got distracted. I saw a girl on her phone while she was getting gas, and i've heard that could be dangerous. I took a load to Nebraska, left on Saturday, got there Monday, and they wouldn't take the load until Tuesday. I took this out there. I believe this is Omaha. And yet another girl in another car.

    My pictures do not turn out as good as other dogs . Still do not know how to put captions under them. Would like to attend the other dog school of photography but can not afford the tuition. Maybe a student loan.

    PD came by the station today for a quick impromptu photo shoot with their '59 Biscayne. We're going to try and go down to the beach one of these days to shoot some more with a better background.....perhaps after the restoration of the lettering and gold striping on our Mack....

    Where our farm is in Riverhead Long Island the local code enforcement now uses drones to find violations. I have none. . . yet, but a few years ago my neighbor rototilled a design for the drones, apparently it will never go away til they plow and replant a large section.

    You’ve done such a wonderful job in preserving the memory of Mack history, won’t you join me in sharing America’s trucking history with all our fellow countrymen? After all, our history isn’t owned, rather it is the very fabric that binds our country. BTW, I wrote this article many years ago.....if I recall correctly, all the black and white photographs were provided to me years ago by my late old friend and former Mack museum curator Colin Chisholm*. Needless to say, he had a treasure of photographs at his fingertips. *https://www.bigmacktrucks.com/topic/46581-mack-remembrance-–-w-colin-chisholm/?tab=comments#comment-343610

    The High School on my road is getting the parking lot repaved and the contractor hauls their paver with a B75. It's always nice to see an old dog still at work! It looks pretty good and well cared for.

    Large, Medium and myself are all Civil War buffs, and we try to get to Gettysburg every few years. We make a long weekend out of it and camp out at Artillery Ridge Campground, which is only within a 1/2 mile of Union line and the 20th Maine's position on Little Round Top. It's a religious experience for all three of us, you really can't understand unless you are there. You can feel the spirit of those who fought and died there. If anyone ever wants to go, I highly recommend the book "The Maps of Gettysburg" which contains carefully researched time lines, maps and analysis of every skirmish of every day of the three campaign. It is an incredible asset to have with you while driving the National Park Service's self-guided tour.

    Thank you all. Everything went fairly well. There are plenty of flaws like two painters. One did a great job the other ehh. Anyone familiar with Macks will see exactly what the flaws are. In time it will all pan out. It's time to give it a good cleaning and enjoy it before the snow comes. Most importantly without your help I would not have been able to get to this point. This is a great forum with fantastic and knowledgeable folks.

    We went to the Hartford Fair tractor & truck pulls on Sunday night; the OSTPA really does a good job putting on the show. Here's a few decent photos...they had 80 hooks, but we didn't get that many good photos.

    so this weekend loaded up my jag on a trailer and towed it a bit over 3 hours to the drag strip. about 30 miles away from the drag strip it starts raining. looking at the forecast rain was likely for the morning hours and diminished greatly threw out the day with slight chances of isolated showers threw out the day. get there fully expecting to be sitting around a while waiting for things to dry out but they called it off for the whole day. so not wanting to waste the trip i start googling things to do or see in the area. see a page listing some things to do in the area and it says "throw yourself in a wood chipper" start laughing thinking its someone joking about how there is nothing to do in the area. turns out it wasn't a joke they had the woodchipper from the movie "fargo" at the visitor center. so what the hell why not. by this point it had already stopped raining and dried up so from there we went to a go cart track and i took a few laps around the go cart track. from there we went to a place called the bonazaville museum. didn't really expect much but i do like history and old things and we had gotten a coupon for a few bucks off the admission at the visitor center so we go there next. this place was massive literally spent probably 6-7 hours here and we were even kinda rushing threw twards the end as we still had a 3 hour drive home. this place covers 12 aches and has everything from old fire engines and tractors historical buildings air places and even a locomotive. pretty cool place, if you ever have a day to kill around the fargo/morehead area i would highly recommend it. i probably have over 100 pictures i could post...lol

    Finished with installing the Mack logo on the radiator tank using the emblem from the side of the hood. I never liked the standard logo-the letter stamping was uneven. Plus the cost of a new one was more than I wanted to spend. Cost for this was .34 cents for two stainless screws.

    Today is Vietnam Veterans Day and today we remember. The day was originally known as Long Tan Day, chosen to commemorate the men of D Company, 6RAR who fought in the battle of Long Tan in 1966. On that day, 108 Australian and New Zealand soldiers fought a pitched battle against over 2,000 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong troops in a rubber plantation not far from the small village of Long Tan. The Australians prevailed, but only after fighting in torrential rain for four hours. They were nearly overrun, but were saved by a timely ammunition resupply, accurate artillery fire from the nearby Australian base, and the arrival of reinforcements by armoured personnel carrier. Eighteen Australians lost their lives and 24 were wounded, the largest number of casualties in one operation since the Australian task force had arrived a few months earlier. After the battle the bodies of 245 enemy soldiers were found, but there was evidence that many more bodies had been carried away. On the third anniversary of Long Tan, 18 August 1969, a cross was raised on the site of the battle by the men of 6RAR. Veterans from the battle gathered at the cross to commemorate the fallen, and the day was commemorated by them as Long Tan Day from then on. Over time, all Vietnam veterans adopted the day as one to commemorate those who served and died in Vietnam. In 1987, following the very successful Welcome Home parade for Vietnam veterans in Sydney, Prime Minister Bob Hawke announced that Long Tan Day would be known as Vietnam Veterans Day. Since then, it has been commemorated every year as the day on which the service of all those men and women who served in Vietnam is remembered. The Vietnam War was Australia’s longest military engagement of the 20th century. Almost 60,000 Australians fought in the war and more than 500 lost their lives. Vietnam Veterans Day is commemorated on 18 August every year. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Long Tan which would become one of the most extraordinary chapters in Australia’s military history. I have copied and pasted this as quicker than me typing a mess up here and making a hash of it to all the blokes who fought in that war and all the wars that Australia gets involved in thank you Paul

    Hey guys it’s been a awhile since I’ve posted anything but I’m finally a proud Mack owner again. I just bought this ‘78 RWS786LST Superliner. It’s a long term restoration project that runs well. I’m trying to figure out how many ‘78s were built and what is the HP rating on the engine which I believe to be original. It is a Gold Dog truck and the VIN plate says Mack Western which I have never seen before. Any information will be appreciated. Thanks

    We are outa town still, only now in north central Montana. All the big OD loads will be happy when we get it done in another few months. Then it will be a bit wider and be pavement instead of gravel. Pretty much all oil field stuff going north and going south.

    We found it: The source of the term "#badass". It's this #wicked #AutocarDC used by Dorrance Excavating in Norton, Massachusetts, to move their heavy equipment. And, if you check out http://dailydieseldose.com/autocar-mondays-dorrace-recycling/ you'll see more pics of this truck, thanks to our friend and master photographer Ryan Pedone. .

    Found this picture of a factory 4 door tractor, this is all I have though, but it’s real interesting, it’s one of only 3 left supposedly! Don’t know anything else about the truck or any more pictures... so enjoy this one, it’s a beauty!
