  2. wtf?..add tags?..I saw a truck. I saw more trucks, and lots of half nekkid girls in lots of cars, but the pictures are still on my camera. I took this with my phone, except the close-up. Zina from Florida took that with her camera.I still don't have access to my computer to download the camera pictures. I have over 200 pics. waiting to download. I can't resize pictures with my phone either and most are too big. How about those black eyed peas I planted-

  3. Ordered a couple of stickers to make up the R-model cab after paint. Supplied the guys with photos of the original ones plus basic measurements. After a few days they sent me pictures of the ready stuff and I said Ok and went to pick up. Once in their shop and I saw the prints in person I couldn't resist and almost laughed my butt off !

  5. another trick i use on stubborn air hoses or fittings is place a hammer on the flat hex part of the nut and strike the ajacent side with another hammer. not enough to deform it, just enough to 'shock' it

  6. Well I retired from trucking and couldn't be happier. The whole state of the union sickens me nowadays. Got a job in a gold mine running equipment above ground and when on overtime my coffee mug makes me the same money $240,000 dump trucks make around here, LOL Anyway, been loading these. There is a Superliner and two CL Elites still working in here. All E9 V8's and I assume 65,000 Mack rears. The Superliner is on Camelback and the CL is on solid trunion. They also have Stars with big rears and solid walking beams and one with planetary rears. The other reason I q

  11. Just brought this 1988 Freightliner home. 425 cat 15 speed 4:11 rears on neway air ride. Not sure on my plans it's been sitting better part of 10 years so it needs some attention. Runs great though. I'm thinking it'll be a Dad/Daughter project with no real timeline.

  13. Dave, we've had a few members go missing due to "issues" on the board. Don't be another one. I've learned to just scroll right on by the posts with battles going on in them. Just doesn't add anything to my day reading them....so I just ignore them. In time they will slip onto page #2 and forgotten. Another thanks for the pictures you post.

  14. That same day we catched the final destination, met the owner and I finally saw the aim of the trip myself. Can't say I was really excited but the truck more looked alive than dead. The next day we installed the rear crank seal housing since the owner removed it planning to change the seal but didn't, flywheel, clutch set and the tranny. I brang a chain winch along the other things but the point to attach it was the body's front board which was not a perfect location to hang the tranny up. As a follow we put plenty of labour getting it in place. Having experience of installing clutch on my R-m

  15. As i said many times in the past there're just a few Mack trucks in Russia and only a finger count of old ones so I keep the track on the most of them. A few years back a friend of mine sent me a picture from the net with orange Cruiseliner with Russian plates. Those indicated registration of the city of Ekaterinburg which is a kind of a capital of the Ural mountains region. A bit later another friend met the owner on some local truck forum and supplied me with contact info. I made a phone call, learned the specifications and the chassis # and was also told that the truck was selling. But the

  23. The bags deflating overnight is nothing to worry about. What suspension does the truck have, are there flat spots on the tires, how long is it? We have 2 trucks with 44s and the 1 that is about 18" longer rides great, the other shorter truck empty feels like a bucking bronco.

  24. Is air still getting to the bags at all or is there a crook valve, if air is getting there and a bag is blown or a hose is damaged, fix that As Mark T says "fix them and you'll see a instant improvement i ride" Paul

  26. if the bags deflate with engine shut off, you have a leak somewhere. if they stay deflated with engine running and air at 120lbs, there is a problem with the valve or link to the valve.

  27. Those pictures are of air ride cab air bags.....with NO air in them (lol) It looks like the link is still hooked to the valve, so why there's no air in them ??? could be the valve or a leak or air supply is restricted for some reason. Get bags that hold air and replace those shocks. The bushings suggest they're old and shot which means there's a really good chance the cab mounts are wiped out too. Correct those issues and you'll see instant improvement in the ride.

  28. Here's some turtles and some birds with big long curved peckers that we saw at a pond by a motel in Florida. This is Ollie from Florida checking out the carp at a marina at Smith Mountain Lake. They sell little bags of popcorn to feed them and they appear like this. They're big too, some are easily 20+ lbs, probably some would go over 30.

  29. Sounds like the cab has air ride and the air bag for the cab isnt inflating Maybe a linkage has dropped off valve or the valve is fault Hop under the truck and look at the cab for a deflated air bag or bits missing or hanging Well walked the dog "Miss Molly" that is, my border collie While I was walking I thought I would quickly google air ride for CH Mack cabs And it appears that as I suspected CH Macks have a air ride cab Now the Granite you have I believe is based on a CH cab It should have air ride similar to this photo And

  32. This is a dream job really. My department has two new 980 Cat loaders, a D6K dozer and a 330 Cat excavator. The haul trucks which you see here and the tailings dam and open pit stuff are contracted out. But right now my loader is a nearly new (3000 hours) Cat 950M. I am on the little loader because I unload all the transports and explosives with the forks and have to sort out the ore pad. And it is a tool carrier, so it has different buckets, forks, and snow blades and push boxes. My department is day shift only and there is only myself and one other operator on the machine and he is a clean f

  42. The end of that part of the story we started backing home on the next day and the loaded trailer went to his company yard with a plan to hit the road in a couple of days. I took another road which worth pointing out since I drove no less than 1500km of nealy empty 2 lane highway with about no passes and light overspeeding. Would do it really nasty if drive a faster car but not this time. Telling further the trailer arrived to my place yesterday and we offloaded the Mack successfully. But I will share that part of the story the other day. Too much to type (and read?) at once, especially by lang

  43. The place I found to stay overnight was a small hotel right near the river by the name of Kama. KamAZ truck plant was named to it but the actual plant's location was in a few hundred km lower down the river's draft. Worth to admitt the water was cold and the dinner was excellent and cheap. Further road represented a section of a 6 lane highway starting from the city of Perm' which in 30 km turned out into a common 2 lane road with avarage traffic. Met that yellow with red IH somewhere overthere. Than further catched a couple of sections of road repairs where one of the two lanes was closed and
