    Daughter in law went to the meeting this evening on the village accepting my offer to shelve the lawsuit. The pair of "elite" women who frowned on my coming to the zoning meeting a few months ago right from a job site in work clothes and in my M917 dump truck, explained they would never accept the terms from a dirty inbred piece of trash who probably can't read or write.

    The piece of crap that was in the White House last said you would never seen unemployment down where it is today, also said that those manufacturing jobs were gone for EVER, EVER he said, really what happened, we have a President that grabs a little Volvo, better than grabbing a Weiner, calls out Rocket Man, tries to find out who really screwed up the election (Clinton) brings back oil, has really lowered unemployment, is really trying to fix the southern border problem (less warren/sanders voters) if the guy pooped out gold bricks and cured cancer the America hating left would still find something to impeach him, how about we impeach THEM, how about we declare the Democrat party a Terrorist group, they really hate America and really try to harm us, all the left talks about is about everyone else in the world and what they think, who cares what they(any other country ) thinks, how about we the working people of this country think, do you live by what others think or what is right for you ??? Impeach the Democrats and declare the them Terrorists.(not the NRA).

    Just made up a fresh batch of my Purple Kool Aid buddy.... Best tranny on earth. Told my wife when I die she needs to have me cremated and ashes finely homogenized into gear lube and installed in the drivetrain of a Gold Dog Superliner. Then my son is to drive across the country with it delivering Moxie to all the dry counties of this great nation. Thats how good a Mack tranny is....

    I'm sorry that you feel like the dealer and mack didnt take you seriously on your project. I'm in sales in Nashville and have given your project alot of thought and would love to work on a project like this with you. I've worked out alot of the specs in my head and think that ultimately we could build something on a Mack that would look more like the original Rubber Duck. I'll be upfront about what we can and cant do so i'm not misleading you. The external air cleaner and glider engine are not possible (anything is possible, but cost prohibitive in the least). But the painted air, fuel tanks, and wheels along with the roof fairing are no problem. Also the single side mount exhaust should be possible. We could do either a factory flat top "48 sleeper for lower cost and ease of build, or go with a custom bunk from a couple suppliers i know if you wish to more closely mimic the original trucks look. The interior is all a matter of taste i suppose, i may be biased but with the chrome trim and extra gauges and leather heated seats, i prefer the Mack interior. Not knocking yours at all, its a very nice truck. We can do a traditional 13 speed manual with a Mack or Fuller trans and Mack rears, it would get a gold bulldog but that will get replaced with a duck anyway!!! I know you want a non emissions engine, but the 505HP/1860lb/ft engine is GHG17 compliant and our customers have been very happy with them. I have good corporate resources who are happy to help me. Anyway, this may be too little too late but i wanted you to know that there are people at Mack who care and want to help. If anyone wants to talk more please call me at Mack of Nashville (Nick) at 330-606-4568. Thanks!

    No connection to seller: https://www.firetruckmall.com/AvailableTruck/09719/1979-Ford-F800-Pumper KInd of a rare truck. The '475' was a version of the old Super Duty V-8 for medium duty trucks, which Ford needed to offer to stay competitive with the Chevy 427 and IH 446. The old 391 XD was reliable but always down on power. Needless to say the 475 was a tremendous gas hog and few were sold. In 1979 Ford introduced the 'truck' Lima 429, which offered better fuel economy and essentially the same power as the 475. I always wondered what took Ford so long to adapt the Lima for truck use.

    Man, the 2 pictures of the grain binder made sick - Lord how many hours I spent pulling one of those at 1/2 mph with a 871 Ford tractor. Bet the cat was glad to get box cleaned out!! That was really noble of you. I would have done the same thing.

    Wow, the fastest car I ever had, the 70 Chevelle SS, only ran a little bit faster than that in a quarter mile. I had two cars that I took to the track, both street cars. I got 99 mph out of the small block 72 Nova, and ran 101 with the Chevelle.

    1/8 works the 55 originally ran it in the early 1960's . Three options I guess 1/8 and 1/4 for the regular racers and the rails and funnies run 3/16 . . .and brag about breaking all the old records

    Franconi's used to bush front axles, they had a setup that clamped over the pin hole and pete would bore it out and press in a sleave then ream it out to fit the pin. The local ups used this on all the delivery trucks. It didn't hold up for more than 1 or 2 years. Pete and I always figured it was a real crappy fix but mikey bought the set up just for doing ups trucks.It didn't do anything over a 6 or 7 thousand lbs. axle.

    You would think the sleeve would go in from the bottom with a step to be able to hold position. With the axle out of the truck, taking it to a shop with a mill might be cheaper? I rebuilt the axle on my Cub cadet tractor at work on a horizontal mill. I bushed the spindles and center pivot.

    The pendulum is starting to swing toward common sense which is making the ultra left implode. Thesilly things they started like crucifying people for buzzwords no matter the context, calling anyone you disagree with racist, homophobes, cold and uncaring, rich etc. now they are getting the same treatment and are falling apart and the masses are starting to see the ridiculousness of extremism. People are starting to see the extreme left who have spoken against this country while holding office for what they are. Dividers and antagonists who will say anything to plant hate and disdain for anybody who has a thought that differs from their own. No one is buying this impeachment bs that the dems have wasted 4 years of taxpayer money on. Trump will win again. MAGA!

    It's certain he'll win 2020 if they can't impeach him. He got too much accomplished to be fired. I knew he was a jerk when I hired him so what are the Dems going to do, make me think he's become considerate and soft? Plus, if they impeach him it's Pence, not a bad pick!!! Recall Pence in the debates, he dwarfed Tim Kaine by letting him debase himself. Pence is a skilled orator. Anybody notice the DOW is up +470 so far today. GET HIM OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We have both tracks around here. Magnolia and Mount Vernon are the only 1/8 miles tracks, all the rest can run 1/4 mile. Since most of the local IHRA bracket points stuff is 1/8 mile, DW42 runs most of their programs 1/8 mile. I can remember about 13 odd yrs ago the locals all bitched about only running 1/8. Then like the next year, suddenly they all were raving about it. Fuel cost, maintenance, etc all were cheaper so they suddenly think 1/8 mile is where its at. I don't care, I just want to race.

    Just found this nugget on the internetowebogram... Glad to see Dan Bruno is back on the grid. I just feel uneasy about his new concept. Although, it is completely logical and makes sense... I just love this CLASSIC movie and the truck. But, I REALLY hate to see it be anything else... But, GREAT JOB Dan!!!! Your Western Truck looks amazing!!! https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=rubber+duck+truck&sp=SBSYAQHqAwA%3D

    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.

    Stemco makes a sleeve for this. You have to bore the axle and install the tapered sleeve which is straight on the od. and tapered on the id. http://www.stemco.com/product/ape/ axle surgeon does this also but they are pricey. normal price around here is 400 a side

    Go to a yard near you, snap tons of photos of a set forward axle truck, and note every difference you see, make your list off that. Make sure you take a peak at the oil pan to make sure yours doesn't have the sump in the front whereas a set forward might have it in the back.

    Just noticed your last two post. The filter kit mounts directly on the compressor. It replaces the suction line that runs to the filter side of the turbo. The compressor is trying to get air from a vacuum with that old set up. This tube was replaced on new trucks at that time with a hose that went to engine intake manifold. At that point it's a positive pressure instead of the negative on the other side of the turbo. I'll look for the filter kit number.

    Rob i believe if you would have used a 673 engine you can put the fire ring liners in it and have the heads scored for the fire ring, you can have an old style engine with the newer style head gasket. terry
