    Never plan on being a stoner, don't smoke, seldom drink and it fascinates me...…………….Stoner dude sits at home smoking state-approved weed & eat'in Cheetos, Democratic politicians boast whimsically about how many drugs they did in college, the companies CEO has a chrome box for his nose candy and Mr.BlueCollar is told "stay sober, clean, and your going to piss in a cup if you wanna get paid (or score a job)".

    Hey guys/gals! It’s been a while since I have posted in BMT. Not since shortly after our CL753 build. I hope all is well with you all. I am back to share another build I am beginning. If you guys remember, my father and I restored a green Superliner about 5yrs who, and then a yellow CL About 3 yrs ago. Any way I have a new project, something bigger and wilder than I have ever done before. Finally got the RD854 my dad always wanted . It’s unfortunate he isn’t here to help me on this, but my uncle and I plan on doing this one in honor of him. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Folks, we need to give Barry Holden a big hand!! If you notice on the home page, he has dedicated a tab at the top of page to the B Model Registry. Once you click on it, you can get to the registry plus a lot more info that I dug out of sales literature. There is still more to send to him, so keep checking from time to time. The old web site that all this info was on was discontinued for some reason. I'm grateful to Barry for posting all this again so everybody can learn more about their ride. Sent a personal note to Barry and thank him for this addition. I have noticed the times on messages he has sent here and I'm starting to think he lives at Watt's Mack. Not often you have a employee willing to put in that much time! Over & out from Ignorant Ridge, Tom

    There are still a ton of fords operating in St. Louis as dumps, mixers and roll offs. Here are a few from the past couple days. I love old workhorses rocking spokes.

    I am old enough (68) to think sometimes that the young men today do not have the backbone the men of the "greatess generation" had. But then I meet a few young men that are or have served the country, and I am struck by the patriotism and courage of these young men today. All is not lost........yet!

    Hi all, just thought I'd share a horn button repair I made to our Type 45 using some 3D printed parts. As you can see in the photo, one of the rubber blocks that retains the horn button had broken. I'm not really sure if these parts are available, but making one essentially for free is always better than buying if you're like me - more budget constrained than bound to strict originality. I drilled out the rivets holding the original rubbers, and had a friend of mine print up some replacements which are designed to accept a small flat head screw in place of the rivet. Blue would not have been my first choice but its what he had in a semi-flexible materials on hand and it doesn't show when the button is installed.

    Because of your post I took one of the warranty calls today, the gentleman hung up on me after I corrected my address. I asked him to verify my current address, he rattled off my NYS address, I said it wrong , here is my current address: NYS Home For The Criminally Insane, Building C, Cell #245 Central Islip N.Y. . I can't imagine why the nice man hung up, I even called back and asked him why he hung up. . .he hung up again..

    Yes. A work ethic, self reliance, tolerance, sense of family and community, patriotism, common sense, practical education, knowing right from wrong, religion of some sort, the ability to see both sides of an issue and last the sense not to believe everything they hear or read.

    Seeing as my F350 dump is disappearing before my eyes and since I don't want to replace all the sheetmetal on a truck with 190k on it, time for Craigslist. Found a 2000 k3500 6.5 diesel with 49k original on it for $2600, just needs a transmission (no reverse) and a bulldog hood ornament. A guy who lives down the street from my shop stopped by and said he thinks he has a good tranny for it so that might work out pretty good. Very clean almost rust free 20 year old truck, don't find that in New England often. Brought it home this morning, managed to put the front wheel thru the trailer deck while loading. I think I'll paint it to match my old 94 3500 HD that I sold because plowing driveways in 2 wheel drive sucks.

    In my short experience I've learned they accuse others of their own crimes. Case and point, Hilary managing to get waste of time investigation into Trump when she's the one who pandered to Russia. https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/429292-the-case-for-russia-collusion-against-the-democrats Trump may not be a morally perfect guy, but he's no socialist pig. And for those who are angry that he hasn't gotten a wall built yet, stop sending he swamp dwellers to work with in Congress. He's not a king for 4 years, he can only do what the Constitution allows him to do. Congress and the Courts have to do their part.

    After finishing up the mock-up and marking everything for disassembly, I was trying to figure out how to get at the front pillars to get at some rust. Well, I guess I wasn't done taking it apart. So, I removed the cowl completely.. I can definitely get at them this way.

    Most cam issues for a mp8 are most likely from either poor maintenance (no valve adjustment) or improper valve adjustment. Mack/Volvo had some issues with the rocker arms but by your year model that should have been fixed. Seen some issues with the reman injectors, hopefully Mack is on their ass about improving the quality. I'm currently overhauling a 1996 e7 engine (level 3 overhaul) in a R model (cotton module hauler). Everyone in the shop was saying the truck wasn't worth it and the owner was crazy to spend that kind of money. The truck is in awesome shape, they take great care of their equipment. It is a mechanical engine (non V-Mac) with no emissions other than a LDA (puff limiter), it's a no-brainer in my book. I'm not a fan of modern emissions but it is what it is and that's what I get paid to fix.

    Pulled into the Mack dealer in Medford L.I.N.Y. with my R for some filters the salesman in the show room asked me if I was trading in that piece of $hit for a good truck. I told him in a minute, got any new B models in stock? Had no clue what I was saying, seems thats the entire corporate attitude. IMO. One day working at Mickey D's next day at the truck dealer...

    Mark, Vision 386, has a great photo of this truck working back in the day at Horner Mack in NJ. The story goes that this truck was sold new as a single axle which then suffered some damage in a train accident. Horner bought it back and built the Mack into the wrecker for their shop. I took the picture of the wrecker at Macungie in 2013. It also was the truck featured on the cover of the ATCA magazine Double Clutch in 2010. Certainly is a great looking, hard working R model!

    I’m sure everyone gets one of these calls at some point, a call from the IRS stating you owe them or you’ll be arrested, a call saying you’ve won a grant just for being a good citizen, or even informing you that your extended warranty on your vehicle has expired. Now even though this is a normal activity I seem to have gotten more than normal as of late. So I’ve done what any sane person would do, and I began actually answering the phone, might as well give them the benefit of the doubt. Well lately it’s always been about my car insurance expiring or my last chance for an extended warranty going away if I don’t answer the phone. So when I answer and get asked to confirm the year of my vehicle, I of course say “1953”. *click* Well darn, I really wanted to get that extended warranty. The next day the same call but this time telling me I have one last chance to pay for my insurances or it goes away, this time they ask for my zip code, I list the Frederick code, seeing as that’s where it’s from and right after I get again another nice *click*. Well not sure what that was about but alright. Now last night was the best one so far. I answer the phone and get a prerecorded message telling me that I haven’t responded to their mail telling me my chance to apply for extended warranty is about to go away, and to press 3 if my phone has less than 150,000 miles or to press 4 to be added to the do not call list. Now last time I checked the odometer it had much less than 150,000 miles, so naturally I press 3. “Your call is very important to us, please stay on the line.” Subtle jazz began playing for just a few seconds before a man with a very slight Indian accent responded. “Hello, can you confirm that you are interested in an extended warranty on your vehicle?” “Yes” “Ok sir, can you please provide the year, make and model of your vehicle to confirm the warranty.” “Well yeah, it’s a 1953 Mack LS85.” “Ok sir...” “Wait I’m sorry, it’s and LS95.” (I had been trying to find a good picture of the sister to my L and had 85 in my mind) “So do have this correct that it is a 1953 Mack LS95?” “Yes.” “Now is that the only vehicle you own?” “Well yes.” (I could’ve provided details about our CF too but it slipped my mind in the moment) “Ok sir, I’m afraid we are unable to extend the warranty on this vehicle.” “Oh, really? It’s got less then 150,000 miles.” “Yes sir, I’m very sorry.” *click* Now what have I gotten out of this experience? The satisfaction that if even for those few moments I was able to stop these people from using those moments to scam someone else who may own a newer Toyota RAV4 or a Ford Focus. I know for a fact had I given them such a thing they would’ve asked for a $500 iTunes gift card or something of the sort, and a surprising amount of people will do it, thinking they’re going to be able to continue their warranty for many more miles. Next time you get a phone call from a number you don’t recognize, and you have the time, make sure to answer it, and waste as much time as possible. It’s more fun than it seems.

    America was built on the back of the Mack truck, as well as the International. The legendary Loadstar was the backbone of the American farmer, carried children to and from school, and allowed states and municipalities to maintain our roads. The stunning Transtar 4070A and Transtar II 4070B were industry benchmarks in the COE segment. A young Zenon C.R. Hansen joined International Harvester in 1927. So impressed were they that the company placed him in its management training program. At age 19, with two years service, Hansen was sent to work internationally in Europe. Over the following seven years, spent on the continent and in Africa, Zenon acquired invaluable on-the-job training and learned to fluently speak French, German and Italian. Given the opportunity to go out on his own and to establish a Diamond T dealership in Portland, Oregon, Zenon reluctantly left International Harvester after 17 years. He quickly became Diamond T's largest distributor.

    My liberal daughter in law ,sadly my son and their two "Jellyfish" kids are prime examples of all wrong with schools, parenting skills and the state coddling system. These are the parents of the little dear who stole 2 Mopar racing engines worth $45,000.00 from me,(got them back on my own) to buy dope. I put his ass in prison for it. Their response was if I didn't have them he would never stolen them and my pushing the DA for the max punishment showed to them I had no compassion for his burden of drug abuse and peer pressure and not understanding it was everybodies fault but his. No blame, no remorse, they were the victims it was my fault, the schools fault and the police for not understanding. Can barely read, do math and would have to go far to have any communication skills, but it is the schools fault not theirs. Son, daughter inlaw and other child were to busy to even come to their mothers funeral but took the time to send an e mail about some of her things the "were entitled" to. I would have liked to been a fly on the wall when they read my answer involving a Scoop Mobile and lye. Geez I feel better now.
