    Solved my emissions issues. Just got home from picking up my new ride. I forgot how glorious mechanical motors are to drive! So between this and the 2013 Star, I know which one I'll be using most. Just gotta do a bit of body work where it has been dented in a few spots, some paint and good to go. Plastic wrap is still over all the interior, never been taken off. All the headliner, bunk walls, etc. Only the driver seat bottom cushion and the steering wheel are wore.

    Even the leading Chinese heavy truck makers have made electric primers standard.

    I’ve got a few build photos from and a few shots from when she was still in service. Her sister is the 1954 3 Door LS85 on that brochure. Last time anyone’s seen her was back in 2014 when she was for sale on GovDeals and all our searching for her has led us to being told she was scrapped. It’s a shame such a beautiful engine is gone, but atleast one of the duo still remains and will be roaring through the streets of Maryland again soon.

    Straightened out several of the rear formers that had damage and getting back some more pieces from the fabricator. Local shop, that's been really good to work with and fast. Test fit all the rear sheetmetal and the donor cab top together for fitment. It all lined up, even the factory holes on the top to the original pieces. I think the top dates from 1948 and the cab is 1960. I have some hope this will all go back together.

    Front lights are only on with parking lights, they turn off with headlights. Turn signals on fender were typically blink only, not running. Though you can make them work how every you want.

    i put the plows on 6 of the 7 trucks with full fuel tanks, and battery maintainers plugged in start of december. only thing that does not get a plow on it is the daily driver. but that only takes 2 minutes to hook up. so far being ready has worked out this year, everyone else gets snow but we don't. but if nothing is hooked up and ready, we get blasted.

    If you put a new spring on your truck will sit lopsided so I would just fix that one or grab a good looking used one..

    No China was what I'm thinking. Never said China was the worst but it's awful, remember the olympics? Olympians refused to go there because of horrific air quality from their industrial complexes. That was the same year glyphosate prices went through the roof because the cheap Chinese knockoffs production was halted due to horrible air quality problems that China was trying to put a temporary band aid on. China likes to put on this very progressive modern face on when in reality they're just the opposite. Remember this is the country that has recently banned Winnie the Pooh images.

    Sad state of affairs indeed. In other news, the global climate change joke's on us. China, India, N. Korea are not worried. Giggling, they prefer to leave the worrying to us.

    Thank you for letting me join the forum. While I haven't had the pleasure of owning a Mack yet, I still love these man made creatures of might. One of my favorite Macks is an old Mack Prime Mover from Hallamore Transportation in Holbrook, MA. Here's a pic my brother took back in the early 90s.

    Produced by Wagner for Mack, they have significantly more force, a requirement for a 20k axle versus a 12k axle. That Volvo wants to charge you $744.85 for a $200 component should be a crime. Volvo doesn't want you operating a 1996 vintage truck. And they want to rinse their hands of "American" Macks.

    A 12 oz can is 25 cents with 5 cent deposit no tax. $2.98 plus 60 cent deposit for a 12 pack 12 oz bottle is 49 cents with 5 cent deposit.

    I’m still educating myself on the subject...the truck is on the teetering point of fix or replace and I know it’s an 05 but it was bought new and well taken care of and pre emission. Would rather put some money out to keep this one. Thanks again
