    In 1994, Dick Kwak drove his 1939 Mack FH 280 miles from Ballston Lake, NY to Buffalo, NY for the ATHS National Show. To facilitate the trip, the drive sprockets were changed to give the truck a little more top speed of about 45 mph. The original EO engine had previously been replace with an EY engine. He entered the New State Thruway at the Amsterdam interchange and headed west. Unseasonable cold temperature and rain made for an interesting trip considering the truck had no heater or wipers. After the show, a more leisurely route was chosen for the 280 mile trip home. Must have been one hell of an adventure!

    A 2002 CH613 with a 460HP E-tech CCRS engine. The best class model for reliability in a pre-tier 3. That's the one I'd be restoring and driving.

    The first picture is how the truck looked when I bought it from Superdog, and the last two are with the axle moved and a new paint job and some chrome.

    First available scapegoat? Our dealership was tanking after 2008 and the owner blamed it on personal hygiene of a couple mechanics and a supervisors mullet. Meanwhile the roof was leaking so bad it filled a customers uncapped engine with water overnight.

    I’m sorry I even mentioned it. I’m surprised I don’t recall the Marmon in the plant as my dads shop was on Morris avenue, spent a lot of time down by the Glen cove incinerator/transfer station. Do you have pictures of the Lizza truck I’d love to see that 1, Glen cove was a sweet spot for old trucks when I was a kid. Can’t beleive I don’t remember the Marmon. Wish I carried a camera around more when I was a kid.

    I've had all too much experience with Freightliner "cross cab ventilation", in a blizzard you could see the snow blow right through the cab! Those cabs were so flimsy that a hit in just one corner would tweak the whole cab out of shape, and I've seen a mirror get hooked on something solid and the door would be bent all outa shape while the steel mirror bracket was fine. Those old Freightliners fell apart fast enough on the highway, I don't think they'd survive off road for long!

    Yes, it's plowing season already in the Dakotas. Back in 1941 the Town of Pomfret, New York was proud to show off their new Autocar C8044 (four-wheel-drive) truck with optional "Tropicaire" heater. With about 100" of snow a year, that 11 foot wing got plenty of use. Thanks, Mike Lusher. Always Up - Autocar Trucks .

    What would you have expected with a Mack out front.We had a fellow back east here that had some Pete’s that had more then there share of chrome had a move like yours.His load came in by rail and it was a press for a machine shop,thing was huge.He asked me if I thought my 82 dm800 would pull the load,said he was afraid of breaking his Pete’s.I told him when and where he wanted the Mack.Pulled it no problem weighed in around 250000.Chrome won’t get you home.

    I mounted my ball valve to the engine side of the firewall. I took the handle off first and mounted it at a spot with a hole. Then I put the handle back on in the cab side of the firewall. Still have to turn it in and off on a cool morning ... but I don’t have to pop the hood. I just reach down under the dash above the throttle pedal. Works like a charm.

    The fuse box that goes bad is the EPDM. The fuse box behind clutch pedal. Pull some relays out and check for corrosion. Replace EPDM (fusebox) if any corrosion found. The windshield leaks and water gets in EPDM and causes corrosion.

    I and my wife when she was alive were armed at all times.I carried since I was in the service and when we moved to Israel in 1972 you open carried at all times. In 48 years I only had to pull out once about a year ago when a man jumped up to my cab and reached in to take my keys, he was met with the muzzle of my pistol. Now what would have occurred if I wasn't armed? People do not like weapons or feel the need to have one, that's their prerogative, me personally will always be a citizen never be a subject The concept of the rule of law is the bedrock of the U.S. Constitution. The founders agreed that for an orderly society to survive, we had to agree to a set of rules by which we would organize around, limit government power and create laws that would be evenly enforced and fairly applied. For the nearly 240 years our Republic has existed, these principles have stood the test of time. However, it is now eroding in ways previously thought unimaginable. James Madison, who wrote the model that framed the U.S. Constitution, said, “If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place, oblige it to control itself.” We are witnessing systematic chipping away at the adherence to written laws instead of working through the legislative process, courts of law or elections to challenge grievances. Former President Barack Obama issued his infamous statement to form laws more to his liking with his “pen and his phone.” The Department of Justice—namely the FBI—decided that the process and rules for investigating Americans did not apply to them. They operated lawlessly rationalizing that they self-righteously needed to save the country from a duly elected president they did not like. We saw it when Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, the nation’s top law enforcement officer at the time, publicly resisted the authority of the president when she said she would not instruct the Justice Department officials to carry out President Trump’s lawful order on Muslim refugees traveling to the United States. We saw it when several states, cities, and counties defied the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution and federal laws concerning illegal aliens and declared themselves sanctuary cities. Some county sheriffs have done the same saying they will not enforce state laws relative to firearms without doing it through the state legislature or the courts. The Weld County sheriff has even vowed to go to prison rather than administer a duly passed state law. Remember when after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld gay marriage in Obergefell v Hodges, Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples citing personal religious objections to same-sex marriage? She chose incarceration for refusing the Court’s decision. A Supreme Court decision has the effect of law. Whether one agrees with it or not is irrelevant. These gun control laws, including red flag laws are a thinly veiled anti-gun scheme and seem to be unconstitutional but refusing to enforce them is not how we should go about it. We have history to rely on where government officials tasked with enforcement authority decided that they were the law. In 1963 Birmingham Alabama Police Commissioner Bull Connor adamantly refused to carry out civil rights laws while defending segregation. Democrat Governor George Wallace stood in the schoolhouse door at the University of Alabama and defied the Supreme Court order to desegregate public schools in his state. This is the slippery slope of men and women deciding that the duly passed laws of the state or federal government mean nothing to them. Now we have state prosecutors in Georgia's five most populous counties saying they will not enforce the state’s legislatively enacted heartbeat law that prohibits abortion after a heartbeat is detected. it is all outside of our agreement to be a nation of laws and not a nation of men and women. When government officials both elected and appointed fail to live up to their sworn oath to administer the law and instead decide they are the law, the laws are thereby not consistently applied and this create an ethics gap. What they swear to in their oath doesn’t reflect the way they behave. These people are substituting their judgment for what the duly passed law says. Folks, this puts us on a road to a very dark place—anarchy. If certain people do not like duly passed laws, then they need to work through the legislative process and the political process to build a critical mass of people to change it through elections or petitioning the Court for relief. I hesitate to encourage appealing to courts; however because it invites a temptation for judges to engage in political high jinx and activism or act like a super-legislature. Think Justice John Roberts and Obamacare. We then become ruled by people in black robes instead of leaving to the elected legislatures that lawmaking authority, which is reserved for them. This attitude of deciding which laws we will follow or evenly enforce is problematic. Once we get used to it, it will become a habit, once it becomes a habit the government loses its legitimacy. When that happens, we are no longer a constitutional republic. We cease to be a government of laws and return to the type of governance under King George. We become subject to the whims of particular people or groups who are known to intimidate and bully to get their way.

    It's not you, Lou, it's the Truck. It's very fixable. 370 is a perfect candidate. I'm a little suspicious of your friend blowing your doors off with his 2006 CV713 w/same set up? Does he go by the handle Old Red Mack, Nelm, Mackncheese, Big John, Dcrow, 03 Big Red, Mackvette, Mudman, Byrohoe or R.E.D.? If yes, then he's keeping secrets so he can laugh at you when he flies past you coming out of the pit.

    Yup, crank the glass to the bottom. It needs to be BELOW the top of the channel at the top of the door panel. Then, with some wiggling you should be able to persuade it out of the door. My drivers door panel falls out easily. My passenger door takes lots of very carefully said cuss words! I'll let you use the words I use....just can't type them on the forums LOL!!! Start with George Carlins 7 words you can't say on TV...that's a good start.... I see you are using tape on the door to help with not destroying the paint. I finally had to do this with my new doors. Ugh, the old doors were much easier to work on!!

    The VIN you seek is a CL713 1M2AD62C6YW009499. Its a 1999 plain old ETECH with the engine ECM programmed from the factory to 460XT. This program will not load on a 02 and newer CCRS engine ECM's. .

    I will talk to you like you don't know how so lets go. First to make sure your on # 1 cylinder pull rear Valve cover. Rotate the engine CW from the front until the exhaust valve on # 6 just closes and then the intake just starts to open. That is valve over lap and # 1 cyl is at top dead center.Back the engine up a few inches and you will see scribed degree marks in out side of the damper wheel at the engine timing pointer. You should back up past the marker a little and then put a fine mark on the 20 degree mark on the wheel.Now turn slow CW until the 20 aligns with the engine pointer stamped pump and not valve set.If you go past that always turn CCW enough to were your past then come back down to 20 going CW.Your thru turning the engine.Now take the plug out of the governor housing that is below the fuel shut off lever and there will be a tab or spad sticking out enough to see thru the hole in the housing. If the pump is in time it will be in the center of the hole. If not then pull the front cover off were you see 4 bolts in a slotted gear.Best to remove them if its out of time very much.You need a to turn the pump CW until you see the tab in the hole of the governor housing until you have it in the center and. You need a A B timing light to do it right but if your just wanting to get it running to get some were to get it done right then align the tab in the middle of the gobernor housing and install the 4 bolts in the front gear. You may have to remover the gear in front to get it were the bolts will go in. good luck.

    Just an update to complete the thread for future reference. The dealer flashed the ECM with the latest software update applicable. It retains is original 71 series turbo. We have had it back and been running it without any further issues other than a persistent burp on decel. The truck still throws an 8-3 EUP code and an occasional 1-8 code which I believe is a fan speed code. A few pictures are attached for fun.

    Andy, I also have an "E" series Mack. It is a "EFU" serial number "1S2671" 1949 model, with only 23,373 miles. I have had the truck for about 15 years. I am missing the R.H. access panel on the hood and am unable to find one. I keep running into brick walls trying to find it. There must be limited numbers available of this series. This truck was originally purchased by the University of California and still has the decals on the doors. If anyone out there can assist me in obtaining the R.H. access panel, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks MACK EFU Michael of Southeast Missouri

    Irishflyer I have a 2001 Mack vision with an E-tech E7 engine. It is set up with the Econodyne setting meaning the lowest power/torque profile and it's rated at 427Hp. I currently have 912,500 miles on it and have had o problems with the unit pump injectors. However at 600,000 or so I had to have a cam installed, the dealer recommended that I have the overhead run every 75,000 miles to prevent any further problems with the cam. So far after over 400,000 miles I have had to replace the oil cooler, the fan clutch, and at 800,000 the clutch (original). Almost forgot somewhere around 700,000 I had to get a new starter and alternator and 4 new batteries. It loses about a gallon of coolant a week due to an improperly designed filler neck where the cap doesn't seal properly. That is about it though...except the Eaton rear ends..keep an eye on the end play I have nearly lost 2 wheels when the inner nuts backed off. If you get a wheel seal leak you better stop and get it looked at pronto. That can destroy the axle tube and if they come off get your but sued. Overall I would buy anouther Mack any day of the week. It has been a great truck and has never let me down. If you have work done on it at a Mack dealer and something is screwed up they will fix it free of charge. When I had the cam replaced the dealer over torqued the harmonique balancer bolts and a week later it came off...NOT GOOD. I called the dealer and they paid for the tow to the nearest dealer and for ALL the repaires. I was told the bill would have been about $1,400.00 if It had come off for any other reason.The one year parts and labor warranty on ANY repair done at an authorized dealer isn't bull it's true. So I for one can and will say that it doesn't get much better. By the way if you can find the E-7 in the Maxicruise power profile it will pull better than the Econodyne and if you drive it to save fuel you can get 7mpg I do. Good luck.
