  2. Good looking truck in the rigging trade. Designed with suicide doors to help with cab entry/egress.

  3. Thanks to both of you for the comments. Wife and I have our house up for sale and cannot include the Mack in the next chapter of our lives. This is one of those choices that you do what you don't want to do in order to achieve what you have to do.

  4. Not just a turbo but low to real low restriction manifold also, stock manifold has to much back pressure I was told to work with switchblade so they make their own manifold, spoke with Pete at Pittsburgh Power and they told me the same thing Blaylock told me and they are hoping to get a switchblade to try on their dyno, I think their manifold would be the answer to the AI problem. life gets better under Trump because people have money to do things like this.

  5. As it goes all W-71's were day cabs. There were several that were converted to integral sleepers at or near the Mack factory. All W-71's do have a rib in the roof line if they are sleeper cabs, that is the splice line from the day cab conversion. Dr Bill's day cab W-71 had a small sleeper box added and is now at Keystone. Still one of the best looking cab overs made and happens to be a Mack. Same chassis as an LT.

  6. 41Chevy posted this picture a few years ago...seems like a lot of the W71s had sleeper boxes on them.

  7. I didn't know that! I see the bottom of the windshield on the conventional lines up with the bottom of the vent wing, but on the H model the windshield drops lower than the wing. So these trucks are genuine L models, not H cabs fitted onto an L chassis.

  9. The green and black truck in the picture belongs fo a friend of mine. It is an LJ. He has had it for many years. The hard nose radiator may not be original, but it was on there when he got it. The truck has an early Cummins with a quadruplex. It was built as a single axle with a big 29,000 lb rear. Later the frame was stretched and a dead axle was added. Currently the truck has a newer set of Mack rears on a camleback suspension. The LJ doesn't get driven too much, another friend usually tows it to shows. The H model was made using the L sleeper cab. They are basically the same, but th

  10. It's written overthere " It’s a W-71. Somewhat rare, certainly rare here on the island. This one came off a farm, has the extended cab for sleeper. Cab interior pretty rough but restorable. " Croatia is definitely not an Island, it's on the mainland. If you look over the 2nd picture you can see Freigtliner parked to the left of Mack. If you zoom you can read "comoxpacific.com" on its right door. And if you go to that website you will find that's a ferry company serving Vancouver island. https://www.comoxpacific.com/ Pretty interesting anyway.

  12. The W model shown is now in Tony Champion's collection in Australia. That particular sleeper add on was done by Able of Los Angeles. I would say there are at least 4 different style of sleeper add ons to the W model by different body builders.

  14. Orville Speciality Steel Company built most of the extended sleeper cabs out of the day cabs for all the east coast truck manufacturers during late 40's to 50's. I have a letter and pictures from one of the original employees (no 3) that I have been trying to find in my boxes so that I can post here. He was a WW11 vet and in his letter he described how they built the extended cabs. Hopefully can dig up the info soon

  15. Hey Terry, I will check that in the morning but I’ve run through every relay and wire in that dash. Doesn’t seem to be anything in there. I replaced the starter solenoid on the fire wall. It’s weird because when I bypass the solenoid it cranks right over. Otherwise it won’t even turn over but 2 revolutions with the key. It just wants to click. It just seems like there’s a bad ground or short somewhere.

  17. It surly can Some of our electrical cables buried with ends sticking out of the ground will build up many thousands of volts in dust storms Feels like you have put your finger on a spark plug as it rips your arm out of its socket always ground the cables before touching them, pain is a good educator lol Vlad I do t worry about the dust to much as I should, to many people running around with their faces covered up in Australia with out me joining them Paul

  18. The White House Statement from the Press Secretary Regarding Birth Tourism Visa Regulation Rule Change Issued on: January 23, 2020 Beginning January 24, 2020, the State Department will no longer issue temporary visitor (B-1/B-2) visas to aliens seeking to enter the United States for “birth tourism” – the practice of traveling to the United States to secure automatic and permanent American citizenship for their children by giving birth on American soil. This rule change is necessary to enhance public safety, national security, and the integrity of our immigration syst

  20. I had figured they were Hispanic... tend to stumble upon a bunch of those who act like they don’t speak English to get out of stuff. Gotta be honest, I prefer my African American stories like the one of the boy from the intercity stealing his brothers bike to camp on the lawns of universities a few days away to apply to them. Clearly a dedicated boy willing to work to get out of his crappy situation...

  21. OK, they were BLACK and did not clean up their crap like every body else, they were only the people there that did not dispose of their trash. Plain and simple the whites clean up their mess, the blacks did not, it goes along with every thing else with blacks they are somehow exempt from all laws and rules and just human way of living but demand respect when they did not earn it and then expect preferred treatment in every thing because someone in their family tree years ago may have been a slave, they should thank god that their family member came here by slavery, as bad as it was it was gre

  23. Entitled people otherwise known as people who are above doing any honest work and look down on anyone that does. Most, if not all, did not do much to earn what they have. They come in all colors and types. But they do have one big thing in common. They are democrats.

  24. 1966 was the last year for the B models. Sort of fun to think you could have an "old" 1964 U model or a 1965 R model parked next to a new B!

  26. 25 -30years ago you were never more than a few miles from a radiator shop, real automotive machine shop or starter alternator shop. Now not so much. Plastic tanks, and crate engines killed most of them off.

  27. As far as the exhaust bracket for the drivers side, they are NOT easy to find. Your best bet is to get another right side and cut the brackets off that hold the muffler and reverse them to work on the left side. Not that hard to do.
