    After about 3 plus years pulled the truck out of the shop for some insurance pictures . Truck was built March 1961 third of an order of twenty four for Genesee Valley Transportation Inc. Buffalo, NY. Painted to U.S. Post Office Specifications . Used by Genesee Valley Trans to haul mail. I could have finished the truck about a year sooner if I did not spend some much time looking for the last tool I was using .

    just acquired a 1961 G-75 LT with ENDT 673 engine, and triplex trans. what kind/weight of oil should I use? thanks for your advice!! thinking of rotating engine with starter with fuel shut off, for a few times and hope to see oil pressure, over a week or so. then changing oil and fuel filters and hopefully starting the girl. any other suggestions? existing fuel in tanks looks clear and clean.

    Mack makes a great truck and this is the site for people who like them, I literally grew up in Mack trucks so I keep going back to them, my first Mack was a B61 with factory sleeper, 673 and triplex, single axle with tag, last new Mack was a Granite with a 460 from the Mack dealer in Montgomery NY, Great truck no power, would have to split a gear just to make it over small rise on the interstate, it did not stay around long, this is a great site for help with problems, also great place to be reminded why you don't want to buy a new truck, I like the pictures and the stories, as much as I like the my Macks I hate the transmissions, great little motors, really well built truck just bad trans, but that comes from our experience and some others do fine with them, that's great for them. Odds and ends is great because on this site the intelligence level might be a little higher than some other places, but if you don't like what you read don't read it, reminds me of the pastor who went and watched a certain porn movie and then went around telling people how bad it was, when you find people who do not speak or debate subjects you tend find people who cannot figure out how their 14 year old daughter got pregnant, those that want to do away with threads that do not match their thoughts are the ones who cannot debate their ideas because they know they are wrong but continue to live in their own dark little closet trying to convince themselves they are right. If positive comments about Trump bother someone they should not read it, fact still remains that Trump has done a great job for this country and Obama was the worst which makes Carter feel great. If you’re a man that's grown a vagina than maybe you should get a vaginaloptomy and grown some man stuff, you might see things in different light. BMT is great, I hope those that are missing are fine, some people have problems and like to keep to themselves, some need support from others. MAPA- Make America Poor Again, Vote Democrat

    The piece of crap that was in the White House last said you would never seen unemployment down where it is today, also said that those manufacturing jobs were gone for EVER, EVER he said, really what happened, we have a President that grabs a little Volvo, better than grabbing a Weiner, calls out Rocket Man, tries to find out who really screwed up the election (Clinton) brings back oil, has really lowered unemployment, is really trying to fix the southern border problem (less warren/sanders voters) if the guy pooped out gold bricks and cured cancer the America hating left would still find something to impeach him, how about we impeach THEM, how about we declare the Democrat party a Terrorist group, they really hate America and really try to harm us, all the left talks about is about everyone else in the world and what they think, who cares what they(any other country ) thinks, how about we the working people of this country think, do you live by what others think or what is right for you ??? Impeach the Democrats and declare the them Terrorists.(not the NRA).

    Saw this the other day at the Granite State Show. It is an ex Barnhart Crane and Rigging and believe it is the one that Hobert spied doing some work in his neighborhood a few years ago. https://www.bigmacktrucks.com/topic/45748-a-big-cool-mack/?_fromLogin=1 What a BEAST!

    so this weekend loaded up my jag on a trailer and towed it a bit over 3 hours to the drag strip. about 30 miles away from the drag strip it starts raining. looking at the forecast rain was likely for the morning hours and diminished greatly threw out the day with slight chances of isolated showers threw out the day. get there fully expecting to be sitting around a while waiting for things to dry out but they called it off for the whole day. so not wanting to waste the trip i start googling things to do or see in the area. see a page listing some things to do in the area and it says "throw yourself in a wood chipper" start laughing thinking its someone joking about how there is nothing to do in the area. turns out it wasn't a joke they had the woodchipper from the movie "fargo" at the visitor center. so what the hell why not. by this point it had already stopped raining and dried up so from there we went to a go cart track and i took a few laps around the go cart track. from there we went to a place called the bonazaville museum. didn't really expect much but i do like history and old things and we had gotten a coupon for a few bucks off the admission at the visitor center so we go there next. this place was massive literally spent probably 6-7 hours here and we were even kinda rushing threw twards the end as we still had a 3 hour drive home. this place covers 12 aches and has everything from old fire engines and tractors historical buildings air places and even a locomotive. pretty cool place, if you ever have a day to kill around the fargo/morehead area i would highly recommend it. i probably have over 100 pictures i could post...lol

    The High School on my road is getting the parking lot repaved and the contractor hauls their paver with a B75. It's always nice to see an old dog still at work! It looks pretty good and well cared for.

    This guy was talking on the internet recently about how one can scale things down and one of the examples he had of something me scaled down was this beauty. Figured you all would enjoy it. Mack R Fire Tanker out of Summerville, PA. “Tanker 7, a 1990 Mack/Ward 79, has 1500 GPM Hale Pump and 2000 gallons of water. It also has 1200 feet of 5" hose, and a remote controlled newton quick-dump. It can be used as a tanker or a supply engine.” Looks to still be on frontline duty.

    Today is Vietnam Veterans Day and today we remember. The day was originally known as Long Tan Day, chosen to commemorate the men of D Company, 6RAR who fought in the battle of Long Tan in 1966. On that day, 108 Australian and New Zealand soldiers fought a pitched battle against over 2,000 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong troops in a rubber plantation not far from the small village of Long Tan. The Australians prevailed, but only after fighting in torrential rain for four hours. They were nearly overrun, but were saved by a timely ammunition resupply, accurate artillery fire from the nearby Australian base, and the arrival of reinforcements by armoured personnel carrier. Eighteen Australians lost their lives and 24 were wounded, the largest number of casualties in one operation since the Australian task force had arrived a few months earlier. After the battle the bodies of 245 enemy soldiers were found, but there was evidence that many more bodies had been carried away. On the third anniversary of Long Tan, 18 August 1969, a cross was raised on the site of the battle by the men of 6RAR. Veterans from the battle gathered at the cross to commemorate the fallen, and the day was commemorated by them as Long Tan Day from then on. Over time, all Vietnam veterans adopted the day as one to commemorate those who served and died in Vietnam. In 1987, following the very successful Welcome Home parade for Vietnam veterans in Sydney, Prime Minister Bob Hawke announced that Long Tan Day would be known as Vietnam Veterans Day. Since then, it has been commemorated every year as the day on which the service of all those men and women who served in Vietnam is remembered. The Vietnam War was Australia’s longest military engagement of the 20th century. Almost 60,000 Australians fought in the war and more than 500 lost their lives. Vietnam Veterans Day is commemorated on 18 August every year. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Long Tan which would become one of the most extraordinary chapters in Australia’s military history. I have copied and pasted this as quicker than me typing a mess up here and making a hash of it to all the blokes who fought in that war and all the wars that Australia gets involved in thank you Paul

    my backyard in Iowa, and looks like thats where it's gonna stay unless I wanna see it turned into either a farm truck,a mudding truck,or god knows what overseas. I really thought there'd be some serious interest in such a rare piece of history.

    I found this and the pics on the Fecesbook-inter-web-o-gram where some lucky guy found an original Waylon Jennings Mack. Such an important music icon and part of Western American culture and history that it deserves to be restored, displayed and enjoyed by future generations. AMAZINGLY COOL BADASS FIND!!!

    Ex-White Oak DM at the IUOE 478 hall 2stacksuperdog doing his thing with Grimace at the local DOT salt shed My friend's 1967 DM815 waiting to get restored eventually. Spent most of its life as a tractor with a 864, then that blew and got a reman 285 put in and a few years later the dump body was added. Will likely be a tractor again. Side note...last few months I've seen one each new International and Paccar tractors for Herb Holden. Manafort's KWs seem to be multiplying. Tilcon dumped 3 R models at the auction this week: 2 ex-Balf lube trucks and a water truck.

    Well lets see......they have no more heavy haul truck, no big bore engines, no off road heavy loggers or mine trucks, and a "you'll take what we give you, not what you want" attitude. Can't understand how their market share would be dropping? LOL.
