  1. The incredible story of a B-85 fire truck that responded to the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon and served a unique roll because it could fit in the tunnels. https://www.firehouse.com/historical-incidents/news/10504285/maryland-company-provided-vital-element-at-pentagon-on-911

  2. New to the forum with my new to me repurposed 1972 CF-600 Cab and Chassis. The truck will be used for business and hauling around my Custom Built 1927 Model T Hot Rod to the Drag Strip and Auto Shows. Pictured we're hauling my sons off road Jeep. Thank for allowing me to participate.

  3. Several years ago, I exchanged e-mails with Michael Fyock, who was the Chief of the Woodsboro, MD Fire Department on 9/11/2001. He said that shortly after 9/11 the Mack ladder truck was sold to the former owner of Interstate Mack in Hagerstown, MD. I don't know if he still owns it but there is no doubt that this truck and crew played a big part in one of the most infamous days in U.S. history. It would be nice to see it in a museum. There is a book about the Pentagon on 9/11, "Firefight - Inside the Battle to Save the Pentagon on 9/11" that has a chapter devoted to the exploits of the crew fro

  11. A common problem spot is the engine to chassis harness. I have seen them chafe on the harness support bracket mounted to the air compressor head and cause a short. There are a few other rub spots for that same harness in that area as well. Another possibility is the harness from the cab to the frame. If it is not properly secured there are tons of rub points for it also.

  13. Same plant in Detroit where they have always been. I noticed in the video they are not shy about their General Motors heritage.

  14. The post sizes on the battery are different positive being the larger. You should be able to tell the difference in the cable connections. The ground strap in your picture looks to have been modified so it could very well be pos ground.

  17. There was a time when America's truckmakers led the world in technology. The Europeans were clearly behind us in every aspect of truck design. America's most cutting edge truckmaker, Mack Trucks, for decades put the world on notice that U.S. heavy truck design was second to none. And yet look at where we stand today. For a country in which trucking figures so prominently, it is a tragedy that all the trucks on the roads of America today, with the exception of Navistar and Paccar, are produced by the Germans and Swedes. It is a national disgrace that America no longer has the ability to compete
