  1. Everything they said. Here is a 1992 E9 500 Mack 18 spd. 3.65 rears. Not bad on fuel if you don't abuse it. Reliable Dynatard is like any other on there lowest setting. Still running it.

  4. I like that video!! Even if it is for the E9's cousin in Europe. I took my 18 year old son on a trip to Vancouver Canada in July, to pick up two E9 MH's and a spare E9 as a matter of fact. One good MH and a few spare parts will come out of everything. He is a go fast kid, has a twin turbo Beemer, speeding tickets and others... Going though the mountains it was funny, and woke him up hearing the engine sing. Dad, Dad it isn't normal to be passing everything going up the mountain is it and where is the locomotive?? I said so now you can understand I don't listen much to the radio in the Superliner the song it plays is just fine. Yah the old truck does break, needs care, drinks fuel a little, smokes more than most today, sort of like the old man that it is. I would not get rid of it for anything... well maybe a load of Benjamin's. There is nothing like a wound up E9 with strait pipes, pulling a good grade with a load. I got a good standing offer on the trip for the old dog when it is time to let it go.

  7. When I was at Lampson Crane yard today I saw this bus setting on a antique flat car. This bus is pretty damn rare I think. It's a 1935-36 Kenworth bus built for North Coast Lines which were affiliated with the railroads at that time. You could barely make out the name painted on the right side. This is a very low slung bus. Note how low the driver would set. And the road light mounted on the top center. This the oldest KW product I have seen. Truck Shop

  8. I went to Atlanta again, with a load of beams this time. Here's the Atlanta skyline from the place where I unloaded- I left there and went to Cartersville, Ga. to load some 40 foot angle iron at Gerdau. I saw a girl in a car along the way- She rates 2 pictures- No, she rates 3 pictures- Once again, it was just sweltering hot in Georgia- ...but i'm still not going to wear short pants hanging half way off my ass and tennis shoes when I go somewhere to load! I saw a big Mack truck there- I also saw this sharp looking pickup sitting inside the fence down the street a little ways when I left-

  12. I am not as concerned with the price of the parts as I am the availability of the parts. I buy Cat and Case earth moving equipment parts every day. Cat charges a lot, but has everything I want almost instantly. Case charges more, and often the part is not available. Some of my Cat machines go back well into the 70's. While Case no longer supports two machines that are a 1998 and a 2000.

  13. The Daily Mail (Hagerstown, Maryland) / October 12, 1970 ALLENTOWN, Pa. -- Mack Trucks, Inc., has added another chapter to the success story of its revolutionary "constant horsepower" Maxidyne engine with the production of an even more powerful model, a V-8 Maxidyne delivering 325 horsepower. Announcement of production of this newest turbocharged Maxidyne, which is coupled with the proven five-speed Maxitorque transmission, was made today by Walter M. May, executive vice-president of engineering and product, and Gerald F. Jones, executive vice-president of marketing. May and Winton J. Pelizzoni, chief engineer of power trains, developed the basic Maxidyne principle. Although production of the original 237-horsepower Maxidyne, a six-cylinder in-line engine, began only three years ago, it already accounts for more than 60 per cent of all Mack engines sold. May and Jones stressed that the V-8 Maxidyne, designated ENDT865, is designed to supplement, not replace, the original Maxidyne. "Mack's new V-8," they said, "is the perfect answer for the truck fleets and owner operators in need of an engine in the 325-horsepower range which provides all the advantages of the original Maxidyne, a drastic reduction in the shifting of gears, better operating efficiency, less driver fatigue and a reduction in maintenance costs." Zenon C. R. Hansen, Mack chairman of the board and president, said the newest Mack engine "will further entrench Mack in the Number One spot among all manufacturers of diesel-powered trucks. "Reports on the 23 prototypes we've had running in all sections of the nation for the last two years prove there is nothing else like the Maxidyne V-8. It's another 'first' for Mack, another quality power train from a company known around the world for the durability of its products," said Hansen. Development of the V-8 Maxidyne was under way when Mack introduced the in-line Maxidyne in 1966 and started production of that six-cylinder model the following year. A number of the V-8 prototypes, pulling up to 160,000 pounds gross combination weight, individually have logged more than 200,000 miles. Results showed the Maxidyne made the run with up to 83 percent less shifting of gears and finished about 11 hours ahead of one truck and close to six hours ahead of the other, and provided a substantial fuel economy advantage. The Maxidyne concept of constant horsepower over a broad working range of 1,400 to 2,400 revolutions per minute and a 56 percent torque rise in that range, make the difference. May and Pelizzoni slated: "Through most of its speed range, the Maxidyne actually puts out more power than higher rated engines, which exceed it for only the top 200 rpm. With a Maxidyne, the horsepower increases as rpm drop. Since the engine runs at lower rpm most of the time, it also consumes less fuel.

  15. I'm NOT a mechanic. But could you have swapped that injector with say, no 6 injector? Then if problem still occurs then may not be injector. And if no 6 piston melts like previous no 5 it could be injector issue? Just thinking outside of the box.

When the E9 first came out in the early 1980s (evolved from the ENDT1000/1005) at the same time Cruise-Liner production shifted from Hayward, California to Macungie, you had the EM9-400 Maxidyne V-8 governed at 2,100rpm (55% torque rise), the "Econodyne" spec EM9-400R for multi-speed transmissions governed at 1,700 rpm (23% torque rise), and the E9-440 V-8 for multi-speed transmissions governed at 1,800rpm (16% torque rise). The EM9-400R offered maximum fuel economy in a V-8, while the E9-440 was aimed at the owner-operator segment. Then in the mid-eighties, the Maxidyne spec V-8 was dropped, and the product range became the E9-400, E9-450 and E9-500 (US market) which all had a 20% torque rise.

  17. And I thought the same at first. Thought it was some kind of souped up snow blower, until I saw the reel. I like it. I need a blower....though. I needed it 2 weeks ago when while mowing, my belt broke and put me out of action for a week and half. I got me a hay field now and not going to rake it. Great looking reel mower and like the colors to.

  23. ...so then, after nearly passing out from the heat and humidity tarping that load of steel, I went up to the Daisy Duke diner- had just enough- well, almost- hours to get there. T he food there is great, and the scenery ain't bad either. It was too dark to take any good pictures though. Then, the next day, I saw a girl in a car. Load of angle, when I stopped to get a bistit on the way to Petersburg the next morning. The worst part was, the load was going to the galvanizing place in Petersburg- I picked it up for Triad Metals, and if i'd known it was going to the galvanizer I wouldn't have tarped it in the first place. Now you might look at this and think "tarping- what's the big deal?..what's he whining about, that looks easy enough!" And it is, I just like to whine...but when it's 90-some degrees, 100% humididity, i'm old, you gotta use that stupid fall-prevention crap to get on the trailer, it is kind of a big deal- oops, sorry, got carried away whining again there! After I got unloaded at the galvanizer, I went over to the fuel stop to wait and see if we would get a load out of the steel mill. I saw this dumpster behind Hardees while I was there. I loaded a load going to Muskogee, Ok. that delivers Monday. I'll leave tomorrow. You can see the beams in the mirror here, while I was waiting to turn into the driveway off of 460 in Concord yesterday.

  25. Back in the day for me.... 70's, this was a typical 32 imperial ton set up that gave at least a 20 imp ton (44000lb) payload on a 40ft TIR tilt trailer.... why drag around that extra axle if you don't need it for weight distribution... BC Mack

  29. Have you checked the spray pattern of the nozzle? If it is burning in a small area outside the piston bowl, that might indicate a poor spray pattern.

  31. Also have you changed the piston cooler nozzle?It could be stopped up or bent.I always pull them out before the piston comes out.The rod may miss it coming out but can hit it going back in.

  32. It's slowly declining. Productivity is terrible, some people's attitude is "I can't get fired", they're behind on fulfilling contracts and so on. Diversity isn't bad, as long as the person doesn't get hired just because of their ethnicity or sex. People should be hired for their skills.

  33. Had a great time at the Pump Primers Muster, the B model passed a diesel Seagrave (from McKinley Fire Co) it was the the first time ever a gasser passed a diesel (of course she was on the lowboy being pulled by the MH) going 70 up the turnpike! We were the only Mack hauling a Mack. Got some great 5" hard sleeves for the FDNY truck, got the right rear lights for the B Model and a few parts for the Hahn, an all around great day! Maybe next year CF600 will bring the CF open cab or the FDNY CF.
