  1. Check out this completely restored crane truck From a local building supply business. This was the first truck the company bought, so owner wanted it back to new condition. Truck was at our head office dealership for A/C repairs recently. Sorry I don't have an under hood shot with lots of the parts chromed on the E9. Around our dealership it's referred to as "The Bumper" thanks to that giant chrome bumper!

  5. Thanks, it looks like Alumitank will make new ones using my end caps. They made the tanks on the 57KW restoration I did a few years ago. They did great work. I am trading the KW without the sleeper, to a friend for the overhaul on the Superliner that includes the KTA 600 with twin turbos, frame stretched, neway air ride, sleeper mounted, AC added, and on and on!!

  7. Well here's some more progress on the old Superdumper. I've completed the cab and I'm now working on the hood. I plan to have that done and painted by the end of the week so I can get the dump body, lift axle and front axle installed. My Brother mounted the hoist plate and hyrdralic pump braket yesterday. Now that needs sand blasted and painted. The cab took a while to get done but I was also sick over the Christmas/ New years holiday and I also helped my Dad and Cousin rebuild the motor in my Cousins truck that he replaced the Magnum with because it blew up right before Christmas. But now I'm

  8. ...and that fire is STILL burning, just what did he put on that brush pile to get that fire going?..been raining for two days now! Cabover KW on 501 Monday. Saw a nice looking Falcon on I-81 in Harrisonburg the other day. Saw a couple of big Mack trucks in Orange, Va. ...and, I saw a girl on the side of the road indicating to me that she would show me her boobage if I blew the horn, but I didn't have time.

  9. Hello, my name is Tony and I own a 94 Mack CH613. I have owned it for about 10 years. I recently bought a KW T-800 to replace it but ended up selling the KW and went back to driving my ole Mack again. I have a bunch of questions and thought this would be the place to ask. Where I'm from people don't really seem to care for Mack trucks especially mid nineties Macks. Is that the bad years? I have had really good luck with mine and I'm thinking about just putting some money in her and fixing her up a bit. My truck specs is Mack E7 350, Eaton super 10spd, 270" wheelbase w/24 flatbed, camel back

  13. The American Mack brand people in Greensboro are not "truck people". Most came from unrelated backgrounds. But they are "yes men" who don't make waves, as that is how you survive in Volvo's culture. Meanwhile, Volvo's Swedish heads in the U.S. don't understand the United States market. They'll keep beating on the square peg until it finally breaks around the edges and passes thru the round hole, as it's been ingrained in them to do.

  14. Since Macks in Russia are too scarce I would count as a crime hiding my recent find. It's in nearly 5000 km from my location, sells not for free and I hope will find a new owner without my business. So no plans to bring it to my propery (at least so far) Seems like an ex-oilfield rig, too probably was imported from the States with some equipement on. Don't know what's under the hood so far, looks like an automatic shifter in the cab. Maybe will make a call to learn more about it. https://spec.drom.ru/noyabrsk/truck/prodam-gruzovik-mas-50783698.html

  16. Just joined a few minutes ago and today is basically day 1 for owning a Mack. I have been around old trucks for most of my life and love the character that they all have. I am turning 50 in April and cannot wait to get this truck on the road. A large tree fell on this truck in the early 70's in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Hoping to learn and help down the road with other members trucks etc. On a mission for sure this old Mack had been waiting since the 70's for the restoration. Looking for parts connections used and new to help me leap forward in the start of this Preservation in October.

  18. Picked up this train from Carl a few months ago. Just got the locomotive back from being serviced. Built on 1934 hasn't been run in many many years. Just needed the. Rushes cleaned up and a good lube job. Runs good except for a minor issue going across switches. Thought I would share some pics with y'all.

  19. RT / January 24, 2017 Authorities in the US state of Utah are investigating why railroad crossing arms weren't down and lights and bells were off when a double-decker passenger train violently smashed into the back of a semi-trailer. The two people in the cab of the trailer and the 82 passengers aboard the train weren't seriously injured. .

Just realized I've never post picture of it. Anyway your truck is going to look good when you get it painted! Josh

  24. Who would have thought dealer networks ???? Back when IH was still around every country town had a dealer so every farmer in the country towns bought either Bedford IH or Dodge as that was the dealers they had And almost every farm truck was second hand say around five years old that had done its life as a full time truck so get sent out to the dealers to have chassis stretches and trays etc fitted Sounds like they have taken a look back at history They were a very smart business model back in the day Mum and Dad come to town they had a account at their IH dealer he sold

  29. Kinda like how they bought one of the best motor grader companies in the world (Champion), then claimed stuff like the class leading transmission was THEIR design, then they pulled the plug on them last year and sent production to a Chinese company. Meanwhile every city and rural township around here had Volvo graders and they just left them all hanging.

  39. Found this mack LJT in the woods and see it has a huge gas engine. Cant seem to find much info on it, was there different size gas engines in them. Was hoping it had a magnadyne flat head to match my B-42 but no luck. Made a offer but havent heard back. Its in very rough shape but some good parts. Are they worth anything for parts or better to leave there? I will try they mack museum to get info if I purchase.

  40. yep it's about a 1/2 hour away from me. Town had a public dump like most small towns had. The dump somehow caught fire which started part of an exposed coal vein on fire and has been smoldering underground ever since.

  41. What a reat story of the truck and your family you posted! Honestly I read it some weeks back but still missed a chance to comment in the thread. A whole plenty of facts starting from that you're not a boy and the reason the project is executing for are highly impressive and take my hat off. Now I see the signs of the progress and it's a pleasure to. Unfortunately I have neither spares for E-model to help you, nor I'm far away to. But I wish best of luck to get the job done fast enough to be in the time frame and do it smooth and easy. Will follow your thread and
