  4. Ohhhh...well that explains it. Shes a "Teamster grrl" huh? Perhaps I can give her a ride in my Billy Big Rigger KW and change her mind, show her the way things work in the real world.

  5. I've been working on the new frame and suspension and don’t have many pictures of the old Mack just yet, the previous owners had modified everything over several years to suit their needs and unfortunately some of that work was heavy handed gas axe type work that will prevent me from doing a restoration like I had originally planned. I don’t want to scrap or partout the truck so the new plan is to make a nice little driver/ toy hauler that I can haul one of my buggies around and have a box that gives us a place to get out of the weather. I’m in the process of cutting the hacked up fi

  7. Try removing the dash and see if you can get your meter leads to touch Pins 29 for power and pin 35 for ground (cant remember if the wires had boots or if the crimp is exposed enough to get leads on it. or maybe get sharp leads to poke the wire). If you have 14 volts I would get another dash. Pins 29 and 35 are somewhat close together, just be careful they don't touch when checking voltage.

  10. Forget about it is not worth it and both of us got off badly and I tend to be a hot head when I'm fighting weather like I am in Maine right now. I grew up in Oyster Bay my uncle had Les's Auto Body about half was down on the right. The build low rent crap there. My wifes uncle was Tommy Trotta had the junk yard and Carmine had the little Texaco across from Tayler Motors next to Sorinsons Lumber. In the early 1980s we had the motorcycle shop on Forest ave caddy corner from Pace. Garage Probably know each other by sight. Allie Lizza's Marmon was in Glen Cove and their Mount Hope plant. M

  12. I'm running a 2016 mack cxu 612 doing ltl freight rarely have over 20000 in the box and avg 6 mpg. the first truck i owned a 1969 r model pulling a dump grossing 75000 to 80000 or more and avg 5 mpg. not much improvement in all those years. maybe running all flat land you might get better but running in the hills that about the best i can do.

  13. Are you saying that a 1 man operation is to do business EXACTLY the same way a large corporation does? Kind of a broad statement ain't it? Most auction trucks are trucks people get rid of because majority of them are: Bank repos, trucks with cosmetic or mechanical issues, short sales, wholesale buyers/ dealers who buy and sell trying to gain large profits. Those trucks normally have unknown history on maintenance and repairs. I'll pay retail price all day long for a well maintained older or newer truck with records to prove the upkeep. As far as the Billy Big Ri

  16. Full disclosure? You’d have cooked batteries or the alternator would have probably given up the ghost by now if my scenario was correct. I’ll check my diagram when I get home and see what you need to be reading. There’s the distinct possibility that our previous owner, Mr.Chucklehead, took your dash apart, drank a 40 of Molson Ice, and relocated gauges to holes they aren’t suppose to be in????? Maybe? Crackpipe theory? How many empty holes do you see in the dash? Any other gauges not reading with a sound mind? Voltage gauge has a pretty easy job, he’s not a rocket scientist. Hard to

  19. I’m sorry I even mentioned it. I’m surprised I don’t recall the Marmon in the plant as my dads shop was on Morris avenue, spent a lot of time down by the Glen cove incinerator/transfer station. Do you have pictures of the Lizza truck I’d love to see that 1, Glen cove was a sweet spot for old trucks when I was a kid. Can’t beleive I don’t remember the Marmon. Wish I carried a camera around more when I was a kid.
