    20ga 870 tactical with a 3" trophy copper sabot slug in the chamber, 1911 with a 200gn dpx bullet in the chamber cocked and locked, XD40 180gn ftx in the chamber, and an extra mag or two for them close by not to mention the days I feel like having a rifle close, again cocked and locked. Theres no point in someone unlawfully breaking into your home when your there....aka home invasion, and them hearing anything for more than a millisecond and the second guy in the door/window will only hear his buddy go down and the action cylce then its his millisecond to ponder his wrong doings. I am the guy that thinks there should be an express lane to the death penalty, if you rape, murder, or anything of the sort you should be sentenced then go thru one door to the firing range then another to the morgue, I dont like paying for these guys to live in prison for 30 years with 3 hots a day and cable tv its B.S.

    Greetings to one and all, I have enjoyed reading the material off 'bigmacktrucks' for awhile and finally decided to join. Mainly for historical information concerning the Mack and the simply pleasure at admiring your mighty fine rides, here. I had the pleasure of meeting Robert [Mack] Brown, when he had his yard, along old Hwy 99, back when I patrolled in the area - He was always giving me a bad time bout coffee and donuts [cop food, ya know]. He was the one, who got me interested in old Mack trucks. [it was here, on the forum, I learned of his passing] 'No', I own none - That is the full-sized variety Mack. But, I do so much enjoy them... Beautiful trucks. I enjoy building a model here and there [my history interest plays well into this aspect], photography and 'road trips. Again, 'thank you' for the welcome. Ed -

    The haul of fame truck museum located on packer rd. in Canterbury ct is a really cool place. Every once in a while I will drive through the yard full of old iron lots of cranes and dozers and then a trip down "memory lane" an old bone yard that's really starting to thin out. I just wanted to make sure you guys knew about this place. The actual museum is open on Wednesdays and Thursdays. If your close enough take a ride through and check it out. Also I talked with Dennis Yaworski(owner) tonight and he reminded me that there is another museum located close by and is open daily.

    Well hope these pictures work. Probobly sideways because they are off my phone. I saw this truck, so we pulled into a parking lot behind the truck because the front was all blocked off, hopped out of the truck ran through a foot of snow with my logger boots, jumped over train tracks, ran through a buncha weeds and then to this old R model. I got quite a few pictures so heres a couple. I was looking the truck over and taking pictures while trying not to be seen. Im not putting a location, dont want to get in any trouble....: )

    He's not "ripping it up" he's "wringing it out". A good Detroit will clean up after himself so his Mack, Cummins, and Cat friends don't slip and slide.

    I don't know any tea party wacko's? I do know a lot of liberal Dem. wacko's!! ( I saw the unions in right to work deal, funny I didn't see any tea party people doin this sort of stuff) and what's wrong with not adressing the sandy relief bill because of all the Dem. pork in the bill ?? Do you know how many dollars are going to the sandy victims and how much was going to pork waste?? so what would be wrong with getting it right? Under GW Bush all of Katrina's money (no red tap) went to the people, how much the Dem. politicians in New Orleans stole is another story! And GW took a lot of heat from those fargon stinkin no good corksuckin icehole Dem's ......... But Obama???? NOT A FARGON WORD!! not a one about his broken promises to the NJ-NY people about cuttin through the red tape an all the rest of the pre election BS. He is a bum and if all of this election fraud is true? Then he should be thrown out of office!! By the way if the election was rigged, why is there no invistagation?? Eric Holder the fox in charge of the hen house, a real joke if you ask me. BULLHUSK Teamster in good standing for 42 years.................And Hoffa JR can pound salt as well and stick it where the sun don't shine

    I wasn't aware of the tv program, but I know that part of the original collection ended up going to a new owner because of a legal issue. However there are a lot of really cool trucks still there. Also the men(who I believe volunteer) are full of knowledge. I could spend hours there! Also there is 2 locations only a couple miles away.

    I have these and maybe a few others. Sold a couple on ebay so far but I would love to put a value on them before blindly selling them.

    Anytime a report of a serious accident is received (in this case a rollover was reported from the onset, which counts as serious) a "Rescue assignment" is transmitted- in case if hurst tools ("Jaws of Life") or other extrication equipment and personnel are needed. Engine companies (the water and hose) usually dont have enough space on board and usually only have 3-4 personnel- driver does not count as he has to run the pump and get equipment for the other guys and the guys in the back are usually tasked with emergency medical care (you heard them say "there are two paramedics on that engine") as the fire guys usually get on location way before the ambulance and have to stabilize the patient. So the Truck/Ladder Company is usually added onto serious accidents as they have the toys and extra hands to do the work or augment the engine company guys. Best to have them on the initial dispatch as it's always better to have the help/equipment on the way and turn it around if not needed, than to get there and go "oh shit" and need it and call for them only to have a delayed response.

    The A-51 (same style cab) used an oil bath on the driver's side,mounted like this: I would look through a Donaldson,Fram,or Farr online catalog,I'm sure they have something that would work.Just make sure you choose one for the CFM your engine is requiring.A new one will probably cost you some coin,but your engine says its worth it! (by the way that is a BEAUTIFUL A model pictured)

    Sounds like the bridge connector from the knuter retificer to the selicone based monulated switch controler circuit has more than 10 ohms. That would be above range for the heavy duty secondary phaser senor. So my remendation is reverse polorize it for 13 milsec then open the dash and let the smoke out.If that dont get it then take it to mack.

    Mack wants the MP engine series cruise rpm to be in the 1350 to 1450 rpm range to get the best fuel economy so the higher gears are spec to get that rpm range at 70mph, thats the key find out what you think your average cruise speed will be and tailor the gear ratio accordingly for the tire height you are running to get the rpm where the engine is at its most efficient. I like 24.5 rubber so 3.21 wont work as well for me it works great for low pro 22.5's, I also want to be able to drop a gear (split from OD to direct in a 13 spd) and get my rpm right back at my peak hp so I would need to get the truck geared to run 40" tall tires, with a 1:1 trans ratio and get the rpm in between 1600-1700. I have had trucks with this spec before and if you can hit your peak hp in direct at highway speed you can walk up a hill like a real truck should, get the rpm stuck down too low and dont have the right gear step in the trans to get it there and maintain speed and you start falling back and I dont care how fast I go as long as I can go the same speed up a hill.

    You really want to tell the boss what makes it worth buying more of those trucks, tell him that 13 liter ran right with the 15 liter cummins, if I had to bet you will probably get better fuel mileage than the Cummins after Break in and as for the Cat's, Why? just why? the Acert engines have been crap since they came out and you go buy an international with a cat badge and an Acert engine, WHY?
