  1. Got the heads/blower/AC back on...well almost. The blower needs the govenor fork "finangled" on the shaft. Still have to pull the en401 out and see if I can bolt the duplex to the Detroit Bell housing. Worse case I guess ill run the 5speed Fuller since it has the flywheel, clutch, etc. Cold weather has arrived in Northern NY and I needed to pull it out my work bay. I have her all covered up outside. I pulled the nose off and have started body work. Also removed the "Rust" formally known as Floor pan. Slow and steady wins the race!

  5. Oil pressure is good, but 2 stroke Detroit’s need straight weight oil. Preferably delo 100 40w. 30 if in cold weather.

  6. Not sure of the years but pre 1973 as they both have steel dashes. They both have 237 maxidyne engines. The blue DM600 has a 6 speed and the DM800 has what I believe to be a quadruplex. Both trucks ran very good when parked but have been sitting for several years. The DM600 has a jake brake but the DM800 does not. 6 is a triaxle and the 8 is a tandem with obviously very heavy rears. Probably 58,000 pounds or more. 12.00x24 rubber and Mack axles on camelback suspensions. Both trucks are pretty rotten and too far gone for any kind of restoration (in my opinion), however the engines, transmission

  8. Found this door plate in an add on Truckpaper, https://www.truckpaper.com/listings/trucks/for-sale/list/manufacturer/mack/model/rs600. It was listed as an RS600. Just wondering if anyone has ever seen this or knows what this started as? Glider Kit?

  17. As a trooper told me many years ago when he stopped me for not having the d8k chained down: The chains ain't to keep the dozer on the trailer, they are to take you over with it so you don't run off after losing on the side of the road.

  18. After my divorce the only thing that I wish had turned out different was that I could have kept my B and finished it. I had chromed the door panels, dash panel, ash tray front, the glove box front & powder coated the front panel of the heater box. Yes that is a NOS just out of the box, no miles, speedo and a NOS just out of the box, no hours tach.

  19. Thats a little different than they tagged eastern built gliders. They put the K behind 600. My 76 R600 was stamed R600K and the vin was stamped R2901. My rollback is stamped RD600K and vin is RD3802. You ought seen the look on the rookie partsmans face when i gave him that number to look up

  20. Agree with all 3 previous posters. Specifically asked our resident expert KSC about an R600K and he confirmed- "K" indicated glider. Again value of this site-someone asks a question and 3 correct responses😎

  24. I had a car pull out in front of me leaving town. I'm barely back up to speed (car pulling away) when we meet a statey going to other way. He flips around & lights me up. 2-lane road, no shoulder...but 1-1/2 miles up the road is a big gravel lot at an intersection...so I puton my 4-ways to indicate "I see you back there and will be stopping", reduce my speed (in case he wanted around me to get the car...I know...not likely), and proceeded up to the safe place to stop. He wrote me for 62 in a 55. I asked about the car speeding off & easily pulling away from me ahead of me. He said "I ha

  25. Don't despair I found another one in Pa.it just cost alot more than $1000. I sure was glad to hear that Joe(Mustang) Glasco hadn,t passed away.The man was and is a legend !!. Those of his generation are owed a heart felt thank you, For not only could they talk the talk, but they could also walk the walk!!!The average driver today would not have any concept as to what it was like back then. I used to have an old B-61 that always sat behind my shop 673t and a quad box and I would like to have a dollar for every driver who said that he had started driving truck in a B-model and used to put his
