  1. Usually sprinkle some Kibbles and Bits on my trailer ramps for the old dogs. This time put 3 lbs raw hamburger on the bed and the E9 jumped up there by itself.

  2. Bought this from a local farmer couple years ago,Mikey decided since he was driving a MH now,we'd better get it home in case he needed something off it. Couldn't get it to start on its own and couldn't get all the brakes loose to pull start it,so the old rollback comes thru again. If I live long enough,I'm going to use this cab on my Magnum MH. It's surprising good shape for the care it had,not a crack in it anywhere we could find.

  3. Well, we made our deadline for the Barrington Old truck meet in Deering, NH. It's been a long road in a short time, but the old dog runs good now. Still a long way to go, but we know it will get there and back home now atleast. Cosmetics are on docket now.

  5. I finally got rid of the original axles and reyco suspension everything is stripped off the frame from the fuel tanks back I primed everything with POR-15 and gave it a coat of black enamel paint. The aluminum frame had some severe electrolysis under the spring hangers, equalizers and fifth wheel frame which were ground down and sandblasted the had filler put in to level things out. I can still see where the spring hangers were but no where near as bad as it was I have to roll the camelback suspension under it after it dries then shim it and bolt it tight.

  7. Easiest way to convert is get yourself a full function valve like a Haldex KN28601. Valve threads into tank and provides all functions thus eliminating additional valves. Service and park hose go from valve to each chamber and 2 air lines run from the front of trailer to valve. Very straight forward conversion. I have a customer with old 70's era tankers that we converted over to spring brakes with this method.

  10. Not sure where or how I ended up with this photo but I thought I'd share it with everyone. It's an old (date unknown) photo of a B-Model from "down under" pulling a road train. I have not a clue as to what would have been hauled in those trailers, however, willing to bet that once loaded, the gross weight of this train would have been quite heavy indeed!! Anyone have an idea as to what those trailers would be hauling?? Dave in VT

  13. Maybe we need to start an Aussie slang topic???? The Just Old Trucks website had educated me some? Plus my 2 week vacation "Down Under" last year. Just a few: Track=road, tipper=dump body, tray= flatbed, swag was answered above, Matilda was a US depression era hobo's bedroll with all his belongings in it, swagman=hobo or migrant worker, scheme=project, Pommey (from the acronym POME, Prisoner Of Mother England) =Englishman or English made, Yanky=American, billabong= swamp land or zoo, mate=friend, and there are many more.

  26. This may be an Eric Ballard, Longreach Queensland Australia B model Mack from 1950's. I have a copy of a Truckin Life article with pictures about Eric, I will scan the story and pictures and post soon. Picture here is 1 of Eric's b model it was named Maryanne who was Eric's wife. Unfortunately it was attacked with a bucket of paint by a real bastard with no respect for history and trucks (but alas KARMA - he has since gone broke and lost all and more - Maryanne got her revenge) , and now Maryanne is about to have a resto. The sun visor is the original visor. Maryanne features in the

  30. Now for Valerie Jarretts comment that was replayed on BBC this morning... " After we win the election, it's our turn, pay back time! Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready, because we don't forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded and the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There will be hell to pay for those not our supporters. Congress will not be a problem this time, no election to worry about after this is over. Plus we have two Judges ready to go and do our bidding" Valerie Jarrett: Born in Iran, Senor Advisor to President Obama and close conf

  31. the front mount will have to be made ,you will have to fit 1/2 in spacers on the g/box mounts to raise the engine ,the e9 is the same physical size as the 866/865 just 866 exhaust manifolds sweep up and e9 drop down ,they will touch on chassis rails. I use the same radiator [1100 sq in] you will have to make a new outlet in the bottom tank , the bonnet will have to be moved forward to fit the intercooler. the photos are of one done before. the second lot of photos are the 700 I'm building now

  32. Good morning all. It has been a while since I have posted anything about my 16 CXU. First off I will say I am still loving my Mack! I had the CEL light come on way back when the truck was almost new. It was a code from the air side of the module that runs the 7th injector. It was replaced and no problem since. Aside from that, the truck has been essentially flawless. There have been a few minor things like the foil hood liner fell down when the truck was 5 months old. The bunk blower motor would "chirp" on low, so it was warrantied and the new one sounded the same from day 1 hah. I orde

  33. when I worked for an airline many moons ago we contracted out our local trucking after moving our own for years.. some accountant said it would be 'cost effective'.. well, one of the 'wraparound stetsons' got to move a GE CF6-80 (Boeing 767) on a shop stand from the hangar to the satellite shop about 10 miles away... it's mostly freeway except for the tunnel.... you guessed it.... he used the wrong height trailer, the shop stand made it 18" higher than a shipping stand and he creamed the top 12" off the fan case and top blades... over $250,000 for the repair to the engine and fours h

  34. I don't know yet whether i'll leave Friday or just drive up and back Saturday, but i'll do one or the other. And yeah, this heat has been awful. I just seen on the TV machine the other day that we'd set a new all time record for the most consecutive days with a high of over 90 degrees. It was thirty-some, I don't remember exactly. They said the month of July was the hottest ever, and I didn't hear anything about August, but i'd be surprised if it wasn't the hottest August ever too.

  37. Getting the head gasket and pistons situated, we changed the partially missing battery boxes, found a dog and mount by shi+ luck, and got it to the show. Looking forward to more shows and getting her back to her original fleet status as an Overnite city tractor. Slow but sure 👍
