    G'day all - I'm after some advice on what PTO would suit the TRQ720 quad box in my '64 B615 - any suggestions? The build plan is to fit a W45 Holmes wrecker to this truck. Quad box details are: TRQ720 11KBA5365P1 36 94 Also, I'm aware that this truck was fitted with a TRQ7220 from new, but it's obviously been swapped out at some point in its life with the older TRQ720... does anyone know the production period for the TRQ720?

    OK then, after 28 years there maybe a few modifications to a truck that took place or it may have options factory installed. As for 600 or 700 series, nether came with a Lund visor, stainless rear fenders, aux hyd. tank or 6 inch exhaust and if we are really counting the LED turn signals, but who is counting? It still is a beautiful 28 year old truck standing tall and proud. 👍

    Probably just the "puff limiter" got disconnected at some point. The puff limiter uses turbo pressure to control fuel rack travel in order to minimize smoke. It's not uncommon for people to disconnect the puff limiter in order to get the turbo spooled up faster. End result: your truck goes down the road like the RMS Queen Mary.

    no it was a good price and a good deal not sure of specs has about 2 inches of crud on everything I know for sure it was a Celli truck I worked for them in '96 for several months with my '89 R. I'm going to contact the Mack museum to get info on how it was built so I can return it to it's original glory and it is a runner . It's going to be a long term project for sure

    we ran cab over freightshakers so we could pull rite up to the trailer in front of us to keep the animals out of the trailers. it was a dangerous place for sure. one of the favorite things the thieves did was look for over the road drivers sleeping. they would put 6X6's under the inside tires. then bang on the door waking the driver up . "you are blocking me, can you pull up 10 feet? " the half asleep driver would not notice the pull up on the blocks. ground monkey would say "thats good, thanks" driver would climb back into the bunk and go back to sleep. only to wake up in the morning to unload and find the 8 outside tires and rims gone.

    Going into at the wee hours of the mornig to Hunts Market was through a section of burned out and abandoned building and tons of stripped and burned cars, The local 'opportunists' would put stripped cars i'n the street to stop or slow you down. Stop for the wreck or slow down they would open your trailer and start tossing out your load to their bro's. We ran three truck convoy into the market. We rammed hulks out of the way, no stopping for anything if possible. I carried Easy Off oven cleaner as a jacking protection, hit the face and head with it the last thing they will do is fight. Those cut down NY bumpers weren't for looks my friend. Very close the Escape from NY movie scenes.

    Well my intro to driving in metro NY was the big strike in 71 when the majors took on the PTEU-the big union that represented most of the petro drivers in the metro area. Anyone in management throughput the country that had ever driven was placed on the "MOCO" team.."method of continuous operation"-The prep for that was we had to take the NYC Fire Dept Certificate of Fitness test that was needed to haul gas/oil-"haz mat" wasn't a term then. Well I spent 51 days driving out of Mt Vernon-at times on 5 axles in Westchester county, other times in a "city spec" 10 wheeler delivering in the Bronx. After a while you learned the shortcuts and I remember one day going through a decent neighborhood (near Gun Hill Rd.?) I pass a group of people standing around a VW bug. I dropped the load and on my way back there is the VW-all the doors and "hood" open sitting on blocks, papers blowing all around it. Stripped clean-and this was a "nice' neighborhood! Welcome to the "Big Apple".

    Keep your eyes on the truck for a minute - we're throwing back to 1980 for a bitchin' Autocar A64HD, with its super-groovy paint job. Also gracing the photo is Suzy, who was actually a manager at the Autocar plant before becoming a top dealer salesperson. #ThrowbackThursday #TBT Always Up - Autocar Trucks .
