  1. McMaster Carr didn't have anything close to this size. I should have called Watts with KKergall's part number but I had already searched ebay for "throwout bearing return spring" and found a guy with springs for old Massey Ferguson tractors...similar size so I bought one. It works well. I stabbed the trans to the engine, it went in easy the first time so I must have done something wrong. I'm still waiting for the pump and injectors from the rebuild shop, as soon as I get them I can paint this and put it into the chassis.

  3. Hey, AMGeneral, I'm in Raleigh, NC and planning to sell my 1956 Mack. It looks and runs great, and I've been using it for my landscaping business. If you might have any interest, let me know, and I can send pictures and information.

  5. 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

  7. 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!

  8. Peninsula Diesel was the truck division of Switson Industries, and named after the Niagara peninsula where the company’s Welland truck plant was located in Ontario, Canada. Executives at Switson Industries, a long time vacuum cleaner manufacturer, had decided to diversify and felt Canada’s market for heavy trucks looked promising. Peninsulas were assembled trucks with Cummins and Detroit engines, and Fuller transmissions. However some imported straight-8 Rolls Royce C8 diesel engines were also fitted. Peninsula’s COEs utilized a pneumatic shifting system rather than a mechanical linkage, simil

  10. RTO or RTX..... it's an overdrive. Personally, 4.42s 24.5s and an 8LL is a fairly well working arrangement in my opinion. Same thing with 4.17s will go faster though.

  13. This is so true. My personal vehicle gets the wheels driven off it. I broke my hand a couple years ago and denied it was broken til I almost passed out from pain. My truck makes a noise and I panic and investigate it til I find problem. Other Dog take our advice and go see a Dr.

  16. The thing is, I've never had knee problems before. I've got arthritis in my hands, and I've had gout attacks before but only in my feets. And I don't remember straining it or twisting it. Maybe I should go to a doctor.

  18. A few years ago I bought a bag of dark chocolate raspberry flavored M&M's. I think I got them at the truck stop in Barkeyville, Pa. They were the best M&M's I ever had, and I've never seen them anywhere ever since.

  26. 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.

  27. The bug was probably caused by touching or being near a non MACK. I get pimples when I'm near a Chevy, Stomach issues when I'm near a PAACAR unit and the Swiss Flu when I'm near a Volvo.

  30. The truck is located in Eliot, Maine, I live in Morganton, NC. The more I consider it, I will probably have it hauled, just too many "Gotcha" moments that could happen on that long of a trip.

  35. Well, my attempt to approach the subject wasn’t to speculate what occurred and why certain members were doing certain things. That is not likely to be helpful, it was more to ask if there is a pathway for the banned members to be reinstated. Maybe a conversation could be had where all parties are again made aware of the rules and what to do if they have concerns about another members behavior. I don’t know, it is just a thought. Andy
