  1. Spent yesterday prepping the frame and today was the day. Great weather, almost no wind and a solid SIX hours of spraying and mixing paint. So many nooks a crannies to get at and a LOT of paint!! It’s done and ready for more assembly.

  2. I've been wanting one for years, finally came across one that was priced right, wasn't too far away, and wasn't already sold. It came out of Minnesota and originally Oregon. It has a turbocharged 673 with a jake. I've got big dreams for this one.

  3. And...we're back!! The old girl has both fenders, an installed driver's seat, and working headlights as of tonight! Feels good to back at it! Optimistically, two more Wednesday shop nights and she's going down the road (for at least her first test drive). Please note I still have a husband and a crew 😆

  4. Sometimes its good to leave the GPS off and just learn your way around still. I missed my turn with the lowboy early in the summer of 2020 and had to find a place to turn around. Otherwise I never would've driven past this lonely dog that hasn't moved since at least 2012 based on Google maps. Last registered in '07 at a closed cider mill. Planning on heading to Jersey this weekend to get the paperwork.

  5. I've heard multiple people attempt to blame others...from the props department to the weapons specialist to any number of others involved in the process. Bottom line, though, this rests 100% with Mr. Baldwin. HE was the one who picked up the gun. HE was the one who did not verify it's condition. HE was the one who pointed it in an unsafe direction. HE was the one who squeezed the trigger. Sure, there were others involved with the loading, etc. of the gun...but all of those people and what they may or may not have done wrong to possibly contribute to this tragedy would be a non-issue had Mr. Baldwin simply followed the most basic rules of safe firearm handling.

  6. About 16 years ago I sold my B and my H. Been looking around for a single axle, day cab, naturally asperated, cabover (that's all I have room for in the barn) as a winter project. Doug Fetterly turned me on to a G in Virginia. The owner passed away and Scotty Shifflet and Ken Sage were handling his estate. Was able to strike a deal and hauled this beauty back home to the Buckeye. 1962 G75LT END 673 with a triplex (aluminum case). The cab is aluminum also. There was no accompanying paperwork to document its restoration or who did it. The truck was sold to the deceased Va. gentleman by Ken Crouse of Iowa who got it from Bill Smith of Fort Dodge Iowa who supposedly purchased it out of Michigan in restored condition. Does anybody recognize this truck and could provide me with further info as to its history? Haven't driven it yet as the radiator needs to be re-cored so that will be the first order of business. Thx Dennis

  7. It’s good finally seeing the transmission sitting back where it belongs between the frame rails!! Removed it way back in 2004, then rebuilt it in 2005. It’s been stored since. Installed a brand new air shift PTO and hydraulic pump for the bed. Still waiting for my front brake parts, so no front wheels yet.

  11. Initial wiring is done--I even did some of it myself! We have lights, gauges, warning lights and alarms, and everything works!! (So much for my manicure. 😆 And if you think I actually had a manicure you might not know me very well. 😆)

  13. There are people rotting away in prison who "didn't know it was loaded" and "accidently" killed someone. I really don't see how this is any different.

  15. It may be about a virus, it may be about your or my health, our bodies. Whatever. But I see it as political. We have had so many plagues come and go. When did they ever EVER push a shot like this? "You can't go there or do this or that without zee papers". Did that happen with smallpox? SARS? West Nile? Why now? So if it's "jus a shot" or "just go along with it, it's easier"....then what do you let in that door next? They get to do sex changes on your kids? They change voting laws? They give all of our data to the Chinese government? They decide who gets to travel or eat? I am from the Soviet Union. I saw this first hand. Start ceding a few rights and see what come next. I'm not afraid of a virus. I am afraid of misinformation and fascism. We are being lied to big time. If this were on the level, they wouldn't be using threats and misinformation on this scale

  18. I posted incomplete photos of my DMM build in the introduction forum. Here it is fully outfitted for work. This project has taken a little over a year for me to fab and assemble. That stainless tank is 6000 USG which equates to a payload of approximately 27 tons of cattle manure. With an Eaton hydrostatic drive off the crank like a cement truck, I can unload in slightly over 2 minutes, with no stopping necessary to engage or disengage an air shift PTO. I am still in the market for bigger/more tires. Got stuck pretty nicely this weekend. But it looks like my options are pretty limited as long as I have the Dana hubs.... Anyone with suggestions please chime in. Also does Anyone know the approx tare wt of a bare DMM? I haven't gotten around to taking it over the scales.... I know we have hills that I can't make it up any faster than 23Mph. The EM6-275 is working pretty hard 😅( I may have "adjusted" the fuel plate) but it is still better than pulling that amount with a farm tractor. received_864841447552775.mp4

  24. I forwarded the pics & post to Mike last night. This was his response: "Im pretty sure Bill Smith did the restoration, there was a very similar truck that was owned and restored by Tom Pierce from MI,but I really don't think this is it,but I could be wrong. Bill Smith's collection had been sold off for 10 years or so,when this G75 and a restored KW were found hidden in a terminal building. Ken Crouse and his now late brother George,bought them,and Ken resold this one,his brother donated the KW along with some of his other trucks to ATHS in his will." Mike's health still has him down somewhat but his spirits are good. He no longer has an actual computer so he doesn't get on this site much at all as he cannot log onto here with his tablet. He does post on several Mack & ATHS related FB pages however. On FB he is Mike Harbison Sr as Mikey is also on FB as Mike Harbison. If a Mack has ever landed in Iowa there is a good chance that the Mike's know something about i!

  25. The news media has an amazing ability to take an issue that is concerning and turn it into a big problem. And because the internet offers instant knowledge, we react before we think... Sometimes I wish that newspapers were still the way of things, at least we had time to think about what we read, without jumping to conclusions... Now out of nowhere, evreyone is bad, or a racist, or whatever the new hateful phrase of the day is... anyway, I may have gone off course.... In a nutshell....... The media makes a mountain out of a molehill..... Unless the news is against a Lib/Proggresive/Commie..... Then they make a ...... molehill out of a mountain.... Jojo

  26. I'm not some super doctor or any of that. I just want real reasonable answers to some basic questions that people with brains should ponder: If this is the big epidemic they say it is, how is it that firing health care workers over vaccination status a viable strategy? If the vaccine works so well, why are the vaccinated so scared of everyone else and still wearing masks, which the CDC states don't even work? Why were they doing "mock drills" with an exact duplicate of this same scenario as early as 2015-2019? Such as Event 201? If the vaccine is so effective, why are the numbers so high? How much are hospitals making off this? If Fauci is such a "scientist" and "expert", why does he never attend medical or scientific events? He only attends events in which he will be recognized as a media personality. He literally has no scientific footprint. Where did the flu stats go? Why did the flu vanish in 2020? Weren't people dying of influenza every year in modern history, including this year?

  28. Here’s a pic of my old Autocar A64b dad and I restored before he passed away. I sold it 2yrs ago I had it for 19 years I sold it because of my severe Arthritis and I could no longer keep the truck in the shape I want it instead of keeping it and rusting to ground I sold it to someone who is going to keep it going.

  29. First hub complete, almost got both rears done today. A few hours tomorrow should have the right side done. I like the original spoke wheels for their classic look, but I’m very happy with the look of the Budds and polished rims. With all the polished aluminum and stainless, they really tie everything together.

  31. I would say that Smalls1184 will not reply as he has not been on the forum for a year and a half. My Superliner is spliced and a Great job. It was spliced to 245" with Rockwell Lockers on Neway airride for sled pulling. The cut-off was left long to add to the wheelbase. The slice is about 4 feet long and goes as far forward as where the stock frame bellies. The stock rails were RW613 9 inch profile 1/4 thick and what was added is like 10 1/2 profile 5/16 thick. Cut-off rails were slid over the old rails, cross members at each end of the splice, though bolted and ends welded inside and out in 4 places. You really have to look to see the splice to the rear. The front is in back of the fuel tanks so you can not see it. This way you don't have to drilling for everything except the 16 bolts that go though the crossmembers. Keeping everything in tact. The angle iron rails for the horns is mounted between the two crossmembers. It worked out well. Yes there are 6 Nathan Air Chimes and sound Great! The end result.

  32. The Alcoa rims I bought were used and at a decent price. The company I got the from had them polished on the exposed sides. They did a decent job, but they needed some more work and cleaning. I’ve been getting a bunch of stuff collected up to finish the frame and get it painted, just need some cooperative weather which looks like I’ll have some soon. I had to have the front brake shoe anchor pins fabricated as none could be located anywhere. Today I spent on the rims doing some clean up and then polishing and sealing them. They’re ready to mount as soon as the hubs are on. Looks like a few large jumps forward are looming, which will be great. The rims really came out nice.

  35. Draw some attention ???(lol) This had my attention even before the fabricated exhaust manifold (which really turned it up a notch) Think it's safe to say you can cross draw attention off the list. You and your "crew" are doing an awesome job on that truck, and seem to be enjoying it already .
