  1. Thank you all. Everything went fairly well. There are plenty of flaws like two painters. One did a great job the other ehh. Anyone familiar with Macks will see exactly what the flaws are. In time it will all pan out. It's time to give it a good cleaning and enjoy it before the snow comes. Most importantly without your help I would not have been able to get to this point. This is a great forum with fantastic and knowledgeable folks.

  3. My pictures do not turn out as good as other dogs . Still do not know how to put captions under them. Would like to attend the other dog school of photography but can not afford the tuition. Maybe a student loan.

  4. Strasburg railroad is holding an event and are inviting all land vehicles from 1960 or earlier to help celebrate the arrival of Norfolk and Western #611 to the railroad on October 12-14. Here’s a link to the invitation with more information and have pictures of the locomotives that you’ll be parked next to! https://www.strasburgrailroad.com/rail-road-invitation-letter/

  5. My wife thinks I need a hearing aid at times. The Fire Service of today is quite different than that of the 60’/70’s, where we rode on the back-step or the side of a piece, seat belts weren’t present, ran into burning buildings with no SCBA-some even held a cigar between their teeth to filter the air, no hearing protection, never cleaned our gear-the dirtier it was indicated a badge of honor of how much smoke we ate or fire we fought. Geeze what were we thinking?

  15. Have two here but I am not 100% sure if they are OEM. One is out of Cummins truck (B73) with a core thickness of 2.75", 4 rows of 1/2" tubes in a staggered pattern with 10 fins per inch. The one out of the B75 is 2.375" thick with the remaining specs same as above.

  16. I'm in the hater category when it comes to compounding turbos. They are engine killers. We lost a Liehberr at 4,800 hours because the secondary turbo blew and the operator ran right through it till the engine literally exploded. The sister turbo will make up for the second while its failing so it robs the operator of sensing the catastrophe onset. If you have a DPF your really in trouble, it will not even smoke before it explodes. In your case you would see some smoke. When/If your secondary turbo goes it may start to ingest engine oil and your first turbo will give her lots of extra air

  19. Don't know what your end result is, work truck play truck or just a challenge. As for spooling up and the time it takes, the limiting factor at least with a Mack is the Mack transmission if that is what you are using. The Mack trans will not shift until the engine winds down to pull it into a higher gear, it just will not speed shift and there is a lot of mass to slow down with big triple countershafts spinning not to mention slowing the engine RPM's. Forget about any shifting at all above 2500RPM's. An old Allison HT740 or 754 would be the way to go for shifting and once the turbo is "sp

  20. So I am in the process of building a compound setup for my 2v E6 Mack I believe there much tougher then given credit.... just gotta keep it up in rpm and not lug it ..... so I’m going to use a k31 as my high pressure turbo comes off a Detroit series 60 and a s480 as my low pressure turbo I have my fuel setup figured Out so my plan is run it till it quits if it does quit then swap out for a e7 mech engine. Mack truck are what I love but!!! Coming from building quite a few performance Diesel engines I can tell you this Mack’s air flow research has always been behind a k31 will much more air and

  22. After quite a while since I first started with this project where other priorities got in the way, I have now picked up the pace on my AC restoration and thought that others might be interested if I posted a picture or two along the way. I have loads of pictures of progress so far hosted on a site called "photobucket": a link to the first album of pictures of my AC is here http://s484.photobucket.com/user/RustyTrucks/library/Mack as advertised but you should be able to navigate around my particular bit of Photobucket for lots and lots more. Just nearing completion is the restoration

  23. Usually Yes! In my opinion you likely got an injector cup issue how ever usually this is accompanied by a hard starting condition! But not always ! The same can be s said for the EGR thing 16 psi shut down may not be enough to leak coolant but 35 psi back pressure( may )be able to push back into the cooling system! unfortunately its a crap shoot! Remove the forward EGR tube and look right inside for trace amounts of coolant red or orange dots!

  24. Autocar U7144-T 4x4 tractor (military designation G-510) The U7144-T was a shorter version of the U8144-T pontoon tractor. It was powered by a 529 cubic inch 131 horsepower Hercules model RXC engine paired with a 5-speed transmission and 2-speed transfer case. (The Federal version of the "Truck Tractor, 4-5 Ton, 4x4" was designated G-513) Always Up - Autocar Trucks .

  28. Old motor coming out: New parts.... Roughing the bores to size: Hope to see what the heads look soon. They went to Fox Lake for a CNC program. They were around 300 cfm on the intake with just some hand work back in '98 when I bought them. They say it should be in the 360 cfm range now.

  30. There were 13 open-cab CF trucks built. 12 pumpers and one mid-mount aerial ladder, for Riverdale in Prince George's County, Md. It was later re-powered with a Detroit and the cab was enclosed. It is rumored to be in South Carolina somewhere sitting behind a fire station with a blown engine.

  31. One thing's for sure - Dan's welds don't leak! He is a structural design engineer in the nuclear industry and really knows his stuff but also has a small company that do "impossible" engineering. So I think that the tank will be good for a hundred years or so. He did talk me through casting a new tank, and there is plenty that can go wrong with that too! Here is another of his masterpieces
