  2. Well after 22 years dragged the 68 out of its corner of the barn. My son had been bugging me to get it going again and volunteered to do it in his barn-with my unskilled help of course. Stock 289, 3 on tree. Only thing I did to it was add two shocks to front axle and 2A" lift when I bought it in 95, for 4500 bucks!

  3. Probably the safest way to play it. When a driver goes to thinking, and picking up tools, things go south quickly.

  6. 1970 Autocar Cummins 335 Roadranger 13 and Hendrickson suspension Holmes 750 extended boom Just bought it today only pulled out of service in January of 2019 because owner retired. The owner who is 81 was forced to retire because he has extreme difficulty getting in and out of the truck since he broke his neck at age 79.He's a tough old dude and a pleasant man to converse with.

  8. Hey everybody, here's a bit of an odd one from a new guy on the forum, but I think it's pretty cool and I think you guys might get a kick out of it. I am restoring a C3 Corvette race car that ran in IMSA and Trans am between 1978 and 1984, and I found out a couple really cool things about the engine over the last few weeks (the car is a tube frame chassis and I bought it as a roller, no engine). they are: 1) This thing ran a twin turbo small block that made over 1000hp for races under 6 hours. 2) It ran two tip turbine Mack E6 intercoolers in the manifold! I think this is s

  10. Our mp 10 engine brakes are as strong as our cummins x15's. well tbe mp 10 actually hold back better in the low rpm and will bring you to complete stop almost with out using the air brakes . The cummins work a tad better in the higher rpm but cut out in the lower rpm . Our titans all have original brake shoes and drums , and all of them have over 300k miles loaded heavy all the time.

  11. I went fishing today first time in two years i got the old fart discount for a life time license. Sat in the boat for 5 hours and no bites not even a bluegill but it wasn't a total loss i caught a boat dock and one tree. Maybe the fish saw i didn't have a mask on and they didn't want to chance getting this vires. Next time i'll wear a mask and rubber gloves.

  12. When it stops running, it's broke. No need for the driver to know anything else LOL!! Nice Bronco. A buddy bought a local one that was parked for decades. Nice, solid unit, red/white top, automatic. Likely sit in his garage for another 20 yrs before he actually does anything with it. I'd drive the wheels off it all summer.

  14. The R model Macks were used as road tractors pulling double 28 foot PUPS. also most were set up to take the converter dolly and make it into a "Clip On" tag axle for pulling 48 footers

  18. And they back their product. I’ve seen them sell a used, abused, CH Mack for $17,000 and then later give the buyer a used replacement engine because original was sacked out.

  19. You could spec. a ridiculous (for a medium duty) chassis under those things. Haulmaax rear suspension was an option too.

  20. I found this article interesting. Especially the part about the Buda-Lanova using 3 rolls of toilet paper for the engine oil filter. You never changed oil, just the toilet paper. And this engine ran in this truck forever. Imagine running that today in this corona pandemic. Trying to explain to them at the store...but I need that extra roll of toilet paper. I have to do an engine oil change.

  22. I know this will really sound bad but if you live near Atlanta you would understand, went through Atlanta at 5:30 on Friday night, left jobsite by the Airport and went right up 75 right through town and up to the north side to Cartersville, this is something that you would never even attempt but we did the speed limit and never touched the brakes, this is what the world would be without minorities clogging up the highway, they all stayed home to get their check and the real working people are the only ones one the highway, man life is good right now but soon the highway will clogged with the n

  23. Who knows what the actual death toll is? Joe Diffie was the most famous person that I had heard of that had the corona virus and died. I didn't hear until the day before yesterday that he had been battling throat cancer, and had stage 4 lung cancer when he died. I just thought the virus had killed him, because the media never once reported the cancer part, not that I ever heard anyway.

  25. EZ, your still living in the land of the free! Our Girl Pioneers group was scheduled to host the International Pine Car Derby in Wisconsin this year. Cancelled for Covid due to King Evers the IV's royal decree. The leadership is moving it to South Dakota. Love it, even if it is a ridiculous drive. Spend our vacation days and $$$ out there.
