  1. Hey all you truckers! New O/O here going into business fairly soon here, I've just bought a 77 R686 with an E6-350 and a T1070 6 speed that I'm putting back together. I guess these trucks came from a company out of Bremerton WA that used to pull pup trailers behind them, truck was last registered about 15 years ago. I do see a few Mack's out here in western WA that have the same paint scheme with the spade on the front that are still running! I'm very curious to hear stories from anyone that may know of the company that originally owned these trucks; what it was like

  4. If you use them, get a copy of the catalog, first. There are images and measurements inside that are not on their website. The images are actual size so you can make easy work matching up what you need for clips and special items.

  5. A batch of black for the cab, yesterday. Mostly floor parts. A small batch of red, today. That should finish ALL the cab painting. Parts are rolling in and still a bunch of hardware to source.

  6. Here’s another outfit I’ve had really great luck with sourcing those hard to find small pieces. Very good prices, too.

  8. As far as i am concerned the best trans mack ever built was the overdrive 12 spd, i put one in a DM with 4.17 rears, best combo ever, and it was a runner too. terry

  11. In '99, I drove for a construction co. in Maine for only 2 years,, But I drove '77-'97 Mack's... My favorite was the '79 long framed RD tractor, with a tri-axle framed dump... That tranny was so versitile, and multi-speed reverse was very cool for backing on svc roads around the job site.. I also drove the X-107 twin stick.. another multi speed reverse tranny in a tri-axle dump truck.. I learned to respect that tranny... after that --- no more stopping in the middle of the intersection, to start over.. Bullet proof and proven.... It may be slow, but it will Pull!!.. jojo..

  16. I live in a county that mostly votes blue with their hand out. Although there were a few more votes cast in 2020 than there were in 2016, the ratio was about the same. In other counties in my state, there were HUGE shifts in the usual ratios, all towards the blue candidate. Odd thing is, those shifts were not mirrored in the races for other offices, only for the Presidency. Even more suspicious is that those counties that showed vast increases of blue votes, the folks running the polls are all democrats!

  21. Mack did away with the o-ring... On the liner there is the tall ring(step) around the liner, measure the low groove just outside the circumference of the tall step.. you will use a small amt. of Mack Gray sealant on the shelf in the counter bore to seal in the coolant. the head gasket will take care of the top... jojo

  23. I reuse head bolts unless they have pitting or heavy rust. I replace rod bolts on E6/E7/Etech engines, never reuse, that's our company policy. Just a note, main bearings are the same on #2,3,5&6. #1 looks the same but it is not, the tang is slightly offset. If you mix that bearing then you loose all crank thrust. Seen many tech's scratch their heads trying to figure out why there is no crank thrust after replacing main bearings. Good luck

  24. Talked to Barry before posting this thread. We can work out something. He said that I would do good at the East Coast shows with guys seeing a kit in person. So that means I got to take the Superliner on tour when shows start to happen again. Should have the bunk on it by then, good place to put the interior kits to transport & sell. Those are the $950 fender flairs I got from Australia. Nice but shipping cost was outrageous.

  25. I’m with you on this one. It seems to me the more people who pass the pics around on the internet the better chance of sparking interest in the next generation of truck collectors. If the truck collecting community does not want to share pictures, information and their passion for old iron, the old iron will soon be reincarnated into shelving in my opinion.

  26. I didn't know it was monetary, I thought it was all about pictures getting used elsewhere. They were all in an uproar about that. I know some of you will disagree, but I just don't see why the big commotion. You post pics on a PUBLIC INTERNET. People with an interest in trucks look at, save or repost the pics. What does it matter if your name is on it or not? Nobody knows who you are anyway. it's just a pic. It's not like people are beating down your door offering to pay you a million dollars for your truck pictures. I don't know, I just don't get it. I post lots o

  27. hI, um will try tomorrow, the dash is in now and am halfway through wiring it up, it has a new harness so every single wire has to be done as I am using one of those keep it clean hotrod harness. the conversion was quite easy once the ratio was worked out. 1, unbolt air motor only. (leave bracket that goes through firewall) 2, I used a 2 speed ford falcon wiper motor( you may be able to use a ford mondaeo motor? 3, make bracket on opposite side of steering wheel, my one is right hand drive, the ("correct", right side.) ) 4, drill a hole in mack linkage, you would use bottom one, as your motor
