  1. Malvern Fire Company in Malvern PA has Mack B75F0001, the first of the B75 Fire trucks delivered in July 1954, Radnor Fire Company (a neighboring company) must have liked the truck, so they ordered a twin B75F Pumper in July 1954. Radnor B75F0011 was delivered in December 1954. They responded to many fire calls together over the years. The Radnor Mack was in active service for 48 years until 2002. Both trucks are now in semi-retired status working at parades, shows and other events throughout the year. Big Mack Website members may have seen the Radnor Mack at Macungie or Lititiz this year.

  3. From a quick internet search This water tower lies right alongside the former path of Route 66, which has since been paved over to create US Interstate 40. During the early and mid 20th century, passersby on the Mother Road were intrigued by the severe tilt of the tower, asking themselves what on Earth could have caused it. A crashing plane? An earthquake? A giant tornado? In reality, it was the work of a heavy-duty vehicle and a bulldozer. Ralph Britten, a man who wanted to start up a truck stop and restaurant off Route 66 in Groom, bought the water tower from the town of Lefors as an inge

  5. There is NO right or wrong here Guys. The fact is that the E9 was a good engine. It did have problems just like any engine. I recently have been talking to Steve Trevitz about my E9 that he personally spec 1500 hp at the flywheel, I have since turned it down a few hundred HP. Yes I have dropped a valve seat... on a Reman head with 18K miles on it. It is known that the press fit on the seats needs to be on the tight side of spec or more. The biggest issue with the E9 was when increasing HP not everything was modified to do so and with operator error bad things happen. This is directly from the

  6. Matt did this truck. It took me 16 years to get all really good parts to put it together. There are 6 donor truck in to this B755. I did not have the time to put it all together and Matt had it for two years if I recall right. 2013 Gerharts was the first time I saw it complete myself. I did a short punch list of "to does" and it was shipped out to Arizona. I have done or am doing the restorations on other trucks myself. Frame from California, Borden Dairy, B773 Engine from Ohio, Kuhnle Brothers Tank Lines, R795 Quadraplex duel plate clutch Transmission fron New Jersey, R719

  9. Till you shut the engine off, then there is 0 psi oil pressure and 15 PSI coolant. Generally you will see oil in tank first, but always change oil immediately after a cooler failure.

  10. I took the red headed woman that I love back to the airport in Roanoke today. I usually take rt. 43 from Altavista to Bedford, then 460 to Roanoke. When I was coming back today I happened to notice a big orange rock truck parked in a field over here at Leesville- you know, where that tri-axle Ford tractor with the lowboy is usually parked. I thought "hmmmm...that looks like a big Mack rock truck!" And of all the times to not have a camera- I always have my camera!..except today. Fortunately, you can take fairly decent pictures with a phone nowadays. So I stopped and pulled in the driveway

  11. No Liehberr here with DEF, still in interim 4. Afraid to get the second generation Liehberr Interim 4 because it consumes 8-10% DEF to compensate complete removal of the DPF (brother, it sure is a nice clean/open engine compartment though!). The machine Pictured is a Volvo L180H. It simply gave a monitor reading for impurity. I drained everything, flushed, ran some NAPA Ad/Blue through it and switched back. 8K hours and never another issues. Blue paint fixed it I guess? I shot the topside DEF supply through our spectrum and it came out in spec.

  12. we had an issue with both the pete and kenworth this past week where they both needed the DEF filters changed. both trucks have only had DEF put in out of the 2.5 gallon containers at our shop. the pete has 65k miles, the kenworth has 46k miles on it. once the filters were replaced, the lights went off.

  13. We just installed a clutch supplied by the customer from paccar http://www.eaton.com/us/en-us/catalog/clutches-and-brakes/easy-pedal-advantage-clutch.html available in Variety of ratings up to 2250 torque Very reasonably priced worth looking into in my mind! Our Mack/Volvo parts people couldn't come close in pricing!

  14. Cheers Kampy! Your story is confusing me. Are you saying it is a small scale issue with your DEF, in ND, or seeing issues all over the map? I'm not selling it, but, in defense of the salesman, seems like DEF is pretty hard to screw up. Look to the truck purity sensing, containment and the operator. I had one issue on a Volvo with impurity...in other words the operator was filling the DEF tank with fuel, stopped when he realized it, told no one and brought it in with a code and "no idea what's going on". We had to paint surround blue and put DEF stickers in multiple places. The blue c

  17. Warren Caves, Power Torque Magazine / October 2018 If you started working for Cooma Sand and Concrete today as a driver in the company’s latest truck, you would be treated to such luxuries as a Cummins ISL 9.0-litre, 360 hp diesel engine, matched to an Allison automatic transmission and with heated power mirrors, electric windows and effective cabin insulation to keep your working day at an audibly acceptable level. Add to this spec air suspension, an FM radio, EasyRider 11 air suspension seats, tilt and telescopic steering wheel adjustments and LED dash lights, all of which are contain

  18. Oh boy. The company I work for had a few back in the day, and I did get a chance to drive one on occasion. I thought it was ugly, the side-opening hood was a PITA, the old early-60's vintage International cab was an ergonomic nightmare and rusted like crazy. Steering wheel was too big and at a goofy angle. Heat/defrost/temp. knobs got stuck all the time. And I loved it! It was one of the last ones built (had the 'Binder' nameplate on the hood), 345 2bbl. with a 5 speed (maybe a Clark?), 12' flatbed. For all it's vices it never let us down.

  19. They boneyard is definitely a highlight for me. I have taken pictures of the same trucks year after year. Things used to change more frequently but not much has changed since last year. They do sell the old trucks, but only whole. No parts. A couple trucks have been listed for a decade and have not gotten any better. Some kids got in there about two years ago and broke a lot of glass. That is really sad to see. Some emblems have disappeared too. If you saw something back there that you liked, give them a call. Mike.

  26. HI, a CH was built on it's own frame wheras a CL is basically a CH cab and a long CH hood mounted on a RW(Superliner 2) chassis. That is why the CL could accomidate Cats,Cummins, and of course the Mack E9 as did the RW. Hope this is helpful. Steve
