  1. That reminds me of something I saw in town when I was a teenager. My buddy's dad ran an auto parts store in town. We frequently used the alley behind the store to come and go through the back door. Across the alley, there was a small textile plant. In the middle of that alley, the textile plant had a loading dock, coming off the alley in a "tee". There was a wide spot there, but nowhere near enough to back a trailer into...or even pull it out. Occasionally, we would see a "pup" trailer at that dock. But, we could never figure out how the driver got the trailer in there, as there was

  4. This rare AWD Mack MH was discussed here before. It was a pleasant surprise to see it at the Gerhart’ show. Not sure what driving condition it is in.

  6. No problemo..... I had to learn it myself as I had no clue. Of course it was easy on an engine sitting on the floor in the garage. I did have to replace the transfer pump the following summer due to low pressure on a hard pull, it would run out of guts about 1/2 way up a long grade. The hand pump was fine. I put a small fuel pressure gauge strapped to the air cleaner so I could watch it on the hills. That is where I found out what was going wrong. Put a reman pump on it and she was like a new puppy again. Photo from google. Going from faded memory there is a disc on top and bot

  8. On the topic of volcanoes: the earth recycles it's surface. One tectonic plate moves under another slowly over time, and then molten lava (which was probably earth crust billions of years ago) is spewed out, to create new crust. Trees: where do they get their "wood" from? The air. They take CO2 and turn it into O2 and save the Carbon to combine with water and nutrients from the ground to make the carbon chains that make up wood. God had this all figured out way before the 1900s. We ought to be good stewards to the reasonable point that we can, and God will take care of the rest.

  9. Hi, I am restoring a 1970 R600 with a 673E motor. I am looking for a complete ring set as a few of the oil rings were broken. Any help would be appreciated. Danny

  10. When putting rear tires on to bring it home I found that jacking up one axle both sides that they won't turn I had to jack up both axles both sides to get the wheels to turn . I have seen a number of trucks with out power dividers this was my first truck that had no spider gears. I got the name Hi Traction out of the Military Manual .

  12. The climate IS changing and the planet IS getting warmer (here anyway). However, "mankind" has absolutely nothing to do with it and can do absolutely nothing about it.

  13. I thought Superdog sold it. Great that it ended up at the Mack Museum. Honestly it would be nice at this point if UPS jumped in and helped financially. While I realize that they want their assets recycled, this one has been out of service for so long that it doesn't matter any more. It would be good for Mack and for UPS for this rig to be restored to its mountain pulling glory in UPS brown and gold livery.

  15. It was a nice surprise to see the MH Saturday after reading the history on this site. I hadn’t heard that it had ended up back east. Looking forward to seeing it again after the volunteers at the Mack Museum get done with it! Thank you for starting the thread and sharing the photos. Dave

  16. I looked at it about a year ago. Looks like they might have washed it since then... It was a decent truck, but far from what I would expect for 10k. A bit of rust in the back of the cab. Lots of small pieces were missing like wipers motors/ some gauges. Owner fired it up (claimed it was a 350 or 400 i cant remember) and it did seem to run strong but had a coolant leak so we did not run it long or drive it. Frame was solid (newer frame) and it sounded like they used it as a site truck and it had been sitting so i am sure it would take a pile of $$ to make it roadworthy..

  17. Thanks It is actually an F800, the rears are singled out only because I need to repaint the frame once I finish installing the sliding fifth wheel
