    Step back TGrrl, let me handle this... Ok, once again!.... Auctions set the value of ALL used trucks....in the same way....houses sold on the courthouse steps set the value of ALL local real estate.

    I just bought two inside door handles and two window cranks and the pins and the spring chrome expandable spacers that hold the pins in I payed over 200.00 dollars one handle was almost 50.00 dollars.I bought them from a mack dealer. The first parts guy wanted the model and serial number had a fit when I said b model I told him same as a r model I had to get a different parts guy he knew just what I wanted.

    The ESI kit from Mack comes with all the filters, why would obtain filters from parts shop looking to hose you, we get ours from the Mack dealer and the local parts house cannot meet Macks price, maybe I have good Mack dealer but you can also look at Amazon.

    I just picked up an 06 CV713 with an eaton autoshift, I got it from a salvage yard but its definitely fixable. I will start to tear into it and to the electronics and see just how much would be involved to make the swap. I may ditch the autoshift myself if its not to my liking.

    They might give you national fleet price on the Volvo lube or you can try the jobber branded stuff ! Less lubricity though ! 😁

    I suspect that electrics will carve out a market share but never take over the market, as they can't compete on functionalities like price and range. But if everyone bought cars for functionality we'd all be driving front wheel drive econoboxes, vans, or work trucks. 20% of the U.S. market is older suburbanites who buy 4x4 pickups that never venture beyond the malls and haul no more than the odd Costco lootings or garden bits from the big box home store. Electric vehicles will probably build a similar irrational slice of the market of folks who want to be seen as environmentalists.

    I go back and forth on this- The Ford powertrain is perfectly adequate for most buyers needs. But a lot of buyers have more confidence in Cummins and Allison, so Ford should give the buyers what they want.

    Victor, Your question is not clear. Something was lost in the translation. Try again.

    Which means if Ford had a serious Class 7 contender........with available Cummins/Allison drivetrains, Ford could get a serious share of the municipal and power company business.

    One other thing I used was Bostik 1100 urethane/adhesive to hold the weather striping in the register tracks and the two vertical seals in the vent windows. Those were originally riveted but using the 1100 and letting it set 24 hrs you can't tear them out. We use the 1100 to patch the inside of our refer trailer walls. When it drys it's stuck for good.

    You must think every company and every segment of the trucking industry is the same. For a large over the road company that only has steering wheel holders this may be true. Between the cheap/ light spec and poor drivers the truck is lucky to last 10 years. Auction prices are not a function of truck worth. I have looked at a lot of auction trucks that have serious issues or need major repairs. Even the complete ones have issues due to lack of maintenance. The only reason there are so many newer trucks on the road in California is CARB

    our 22 year old kenworth W900 gets 7-8 mpg regularly puling the paver and rollers around. unless of course it has the 70,000 milling machine on the deck. i have yet to see anyone with a truck made in the past 10 years that can match the fuel mileage of the W900 with the C-15 cat and 18 speed. and that W900 is just as comfortable as any Mack i ever drove. actually it is a better ride, since it has air ride suspension.

    they must be pricing the whole filter assy, don't know which you have but if it the one with the drain hose from the filter to the bottom of block you un screw the housing and replace the filter inside, up to 97or 98 the part # of the filter inside is 57GC2134A new #85136709, the price should be around 18.00. The oil filters are 485gb3191C /21939324 on the E7, The Etech engine oil filter 185GB3236 / 21939298 but it will work on E7 engine too, just filters better, the are around 12.00 a piece, should be around 42.00. and cheaper it you go with the old oil filters.

    I used the scaler to get the heavy rust off my parts; when the weather is decent I'll get them sandblasted. These go on top of the leaf springs, under the axles. I got the drawings from the Mack museum and they call them "buttons" but there's no part number on the drawing. They have little coil springs inside them to keep them from dancing around but as you can see the springs will have to be replaced. I've seen other camelbacks that have rubber insulators in place of these...if anybody knows if I can replace these with the rubber insulators let me know.

    nope, i would buy 5 or 6 old ones, fix them up, and be ahead of the game in both money and productivity. i keep asking my boss to buy my old 99 or even the 05 granite back, this new 2020 truck is a royal piece of garbage. when it runs it runs great...............when it runs.

    Just today this picture was taken, after this rocket landed on that barge in the middle of the Atlantic it came back to port and now will be brought back tot he launch pad to gain a payload and fly again, maybe even later this month! The finer details are equally as cool like using this behemoth of a crane, which will also be rigged with winches to fold up the landing legs. Just something cool I figured I’d share!

    I am finding that using a generic search such as "1999 mack etech 400 site:bigmacktrucks.com" works better than the included search engine, if that helps any.

    I’ve seen radiator hoses collapse inside that will drive you crazy also. With no external signs at all. Have you check the hoses inside top and bottom

    I also saw an engine that seemed to miss also, it got way worse with rpm's. Turned out to be a missing fan blade
