    Just over 1100 miles one way with my Marmon and M172 trailer. Hopefully 700 miles home with a new B

    I just wanted to give an update on my R770. I have everything working as it should, Cleaned and painted frame and hubs. Repurposed some tires. The ones on the truck had lots of tread but were badly weather checked from sitting for 16 years . After a polish, this is what I have. A side note about the flags. The previous owners wife would hand sew flags for her husband. There was a stack of them under the seat, so I thought I should be showing them off ,and sharing the story.

    I wanted to share my latest addition . It started life as an R795 . But the owner ( that has passed now ) liked detroit motors. So they put an 8V92 in it. I don't know a lot about the truck. I believe it has 44 k rears, 12 k front . I do know it is a 1977 , 475 hp and it has a 13 speed . I am now the 3rd owner of the truck. My plan is to use it a little to move equipment and take to the occasional show. As strange as it seems …….. my attraction to this truck is the motor. It just sounds so cool ! I plan on doing some video of it . I will post when i get something uploaded .

    From what I can see on the pics all the setup is parts you can fabricate relatively easy sure with some efforts. Including the bumper since it's made of straight steel with straight corners. The attachment parts seem not needed to be reproduced as an absolute clone to the original since they're not seen from the outside. In relation to that reproducing (fabricating) of the flat style Superliner II bumper would be much more difficult task due to its stamped shape. Lucky it's stll avalible new OEM.

    A buddy of mine picked up this R-Model with a 8V71 a few weeks back. Fired right up with some fuel and some good batteries. He is unsure of the exact year. How long did the steel dash exist in the R-model?

    Claribin hood, early 4 hole Alloy front wheels, long aluminum Mack tanks, Cat powered. Past spring it is almost all hidden under grape vines. Called every dirt hauler, construction company, storage yard and repair shop in St Joe before I found it. Post a few photos after I'm physically next to it. The hood is what I want but the wheels, tanks and Cat parts are a bonus. It's all for my build of my mixer is the how I would have ordered it when new.

    It's kinda funny how most ALL the news have hot women anchors. Remember when it was just guys like Walter Kronkite and Dan Rather? I guess if I turn the volume off, I could stand to watch the national news?

    Haven't seen that one. I'll have to keep my eyes open next time I'm down that way. There were a couple of B's up here in wine country that would haul during harvest but I haven't seen them lately.

    And if you sat in it, you would never guess it has over 1.4 million miles on it. But in typical fashion when Denis did this over, end result is it is like new.

    I forgot to mention that all I have done to the 8V92 is service it . I did however add a box for the airbox drains to drain into. Originally the airbox drains went into the crankcase. I was told its better to watch what comes out of the airbox. When I got the truck, the drains just drained onto the ground. It was a little messy where ever I went ,LOL. So I put together this box for the drains to go into. I can then drain it and watch to make sure there is nothing in it but oil.

    I have never driven the older 2 stick 5 speed with the over drive but all of the 2 stick 6 Direct 6 speeds had some sort of whine to them. some it was just felt in the stick others were more of a howl... the good thing is all of them were damm near bullet proof. I can only think of a few that needed bearings or something normal for wear items.

    Project Grape Vine must be a truck so sweet that you travel hundreds of miles and don’t speak of it on BMT till you hands are on the hood and cash is down on the accepted offer.

    We have a couple of trucks with that type transmission and one truck I just pulled that transmission out of and replaced it with an overdrive transmission to try and lower my engine rpm in top gear. I love those transmissions in dump trucks. I think ours all have some gear whine. In the 30 years I’ve been around these trucks I don’t think any of them have been opened up for repairs. Triple countershafts and double tough. If it was mine I’d truck on if you like it. One of these was ran out of oil 20 years ago or more. Mechanic put a seal in it and refilled it with oil and it’s been more noisy than the rest ever since but it’s still never been apart... Lol

    My friend found one of these pics on social media, so I figured since they have been also featured in the Canadian Bulldog Magazine back in the day I would post I may as well post my good friend's and his fathers old Mack's. The E9 V8 Superliner was a show and shine winner at El Rodeo Du Camion in Quebec. And the R pulling the float trailers had what he built as the very first auxiliary power unit around here back when there was no such thing. He put a Vauxhall engine in the side saddle storage box that charged the batteries, pre-heated the engine and wet line hydraulic oil tank and provided climate control in the cab when parked.

    I see that Ford has trademarked the names Scout and Bronco Scout for possible future use. The Scout will always be an IH product in my mind! https://www.autoblog.com/2019/04/22/ford-trademarks-scout-bronco-scout-names/

    May as well post one of the 87 R Model's I hauled salt with too. This was a strong little E6 350. Grossed 140,000 pounds all it's life running 8 to 12% hills north of here.

    Saw this one in Petersburg last week. I'm not a Western Star expert, but I think this is a Low Max. Not my favorite Western Star model, but some of those new ones are sharp looking trucks.

    A local fellow bought a Diamond Reo with an oem installed air cooled Deutz and ran it in his tipper fleet. Don't have a picture of the exact truck but it looked like this one.

    I work at a dealer that sells and service to more then half of the mixer companies in Ontario. Mack Canada has built a relationship with most of the big Concrete companies since the late 60s. There is a long history of scratching backs there. Trucks are sold to these customers usually by E.O. ( Executive Office) sales reps with almost zero profits to the delivering dealer. It's a package deal. If it wasn't for the bend over backwards, almost at cost shop labor rates and parts, pickup and delivery of units to be worked on, extra warranty and policy on just about everything.....blah blah....dont kid yourself. The smaller mixer companies are turning to mostly Paccar now. You will always notice a handful of T880s or Petes in a big mixer fleet just to keep Mack honest. To bad i can't post pictures on here anymore. Our shop is usually over 50% Granite mixers any given day.

    That looks kind of neat with no hood and that dog standing proud out there by himself.

    It’s all back in one piece, minus the hood, and we had it out and running around today. It seemed to be down on power and come to find out the fuel pump needs to be rebuilt. I’ll try to see if I can get some better pictures later.

    It’s coming back together! Latest update says starting it Thursday morning and having it roaring down the streets of Maryland later that day. What funny is one of the big delays was the fact that her replacement, Independent’s new Engine 12, was also in the shop and obviously the wagon still in service took priority. I’ll send pictures when I can, but I will say that her chrome shines brightly, or atleast what you can see if it behind the rust.
