    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....

    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.

    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

    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 .

    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

    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.

    Love it when a plan comes together ! I have always wanted to try that however being in the Mack business have never been able to try We are always expected to do it Properly and to sell the right parts to do the job correctly! Even new the clutch slot has lots of room for movement So building it up likley won't hurt anything other than the possibility of creating a hard area on the fork that could eventually break How ever as Teck Said What do You have to loose! However you may still have to do the reaction discs sooner or later! But your up and going and thats the name of the game!😎

    I used a caliper micrometer to measure the ring and it was about 15mm .I built up the material in the fork and then ground it down to around 14.8 mm to give it some breathing room. The fork originally had a thickness of around 10.5 mm , those extra 4.5 was the needed push to make the low range clutch engage.

    Awesome save RED! The ring that receives the fork is definitely worn. I realize it’s back in, but for anyone else, don’t be afraid to add metal to fork, past original thickness dimension, to compensate for both (fork and slider) worn surfaces. You have nothing to lose.

    Same reason we give all types of money and aid to illegals who come here? After all it is not like the politicians really give a crap about who bank rolls the funds or who bears the burden of the debt. Remember AOC's statement about spending money "if we don't have enough, just print more because it is not adding to the deficit if it comes from inside the U.S. borders"

    My wife thinks I need a hearing aid at times. The Fire Service of today is quite different than that of the 60’/70’s, where we rode on the back-step or the side of a piece, seat belts weren’t present, ran into burning buildings with no SCBA-some even held a cigar between their teeth to filter the air, no hearing protection, never cleaned our gear-the dirtier it was indicated a badge of honor of how much smoke we ate or fire we fought. Geeze what were we thinking?

    If you want to drool visit the Australian Mack website. Much more BBC and vendor options than stateside. The Aussie lineup should be offered in Canada.

    Don't know what your end result is, work truck play truck or just a challenge. As for spooling up and the time it takes, the limiting factor at least with a Mack is the Mack transmission if that is what you are using. The Mack trans will not shift until the engine winds down to pull it into a higher gear, it just will not speed shift and there is a lot of mass to slow down with big triple countershafts spinning not to mention slowing the engine RPM's. Forget about any shifting at all above 2500RPM's. An old Allison HT740 or 754 would be the way to go for shifting and once the turbo is "spook up" as you say it will stay there until you lift your foot. There is a lot involved with doing a compound turbo set-up. A lot of calculations and development to get a set-up to work every day in all conditions. Years ago there were a few compound turbo truck engines and the end result was to get more boost than what a single turbo would produce, like a 475 Cat and 2008 to 2014? Ford Powerstroke, the Mack E9 tank engine. Fast forward to today and it is EZ to get 60 plus pounds of boost out of the new technology aftermarket turbos. The new turbo set-ups are smaller twin turbos for faster spooling as boost PSI is no longer a factor to achieve. A nice new BW S480 turbo is about $1200 and more than most E6's can handle. Turbo lag has been reduced as the rotating mass of the new turbos is much less and efficiency is much greater than turbos from the 1970-1990's, when the E6 engine was produced. Have fun but there is a much easier way to get more boost reliably, At least enough to blow head gaskets, scorch pistons and spin rod bearing. As for cool factor most guys would just ask why or say: It's a Mack "performance counts" just not high performance. By the way I think Staxx is getting about 1000hp out of a single turbo on his race truck.

    I visited with the farmer who's letting us stage our stuff on his property, and he showed me around at some of his "stuff". Does any one know the year of these Ford and Chevy cab overs ?

    Does anyone have any info on All American trucks ? I took this picture at The Truckers jamboree in Walcot Iowa in 2014 or 2015 I believe. The owner only knew they were manufactured in Chicago. A stout little thing I'm sure could carry a lot more than rated if it had better brakes,they were simply a rod connected to a lever at the brakedrum and another lever at the foot pedal.

    It’s my personal opinion that HOAs are unconstitutional because they’re designed specifically to regulate OTHER people’s personal property, and don’t even get me started on how I can’t fathom the legality of forcing someone to be a part of an HOA if YOU own the property... but that’s just my two sense...

    Old motor coming out: New parts.... Roughing the bores to size: Hope to see what the heads look soon. They went to Fox Lake for a CNC program. They were around 300 cfm on the intake with just some hand work back in '98 when I bought them. They say it should be in the 360 cfm range now.
