  1. Achieved some more, the Tip Turbine is all back together Never got a answer on the grease so just used wheel bearing grease So it's all back together and fitted back to the truck Then proceeded to fix the stub axle nuts that hold the bearings on after some clowns had taken to them with a hammer and chisel, no doubt Les and Vern So welded them and ground them back with a flap wheel Now I need to find a socket to fit They came up pretty good I thought Paul

  2. I do not condone what happened at the Capital, just like I do not condone what happened across our Country all summer. Funny how when the fight comes to their (politicians) door, it needs to be stopped. When American cities were burning it was peaceful protesting and should be encouraged. I will never support any politician, regardless of party that condones/supports the killing of the innocent in the womb. At the end the day parties don’t matter, a clear moral conscience does

  8. How is pointing out those that are delusional and suffering from DTS and are so scared of Trump that they are trying to prevent him from even RUNNING again considered "ripping on Trump"?. The left is CLEARLY scared spitless of Trump, the right is not scared of Biden, the man, only scared of what Biden will do to the country in his medically demented state. He would have been bad back when he had all of his facilities but in his current state he is just plan dangerous.

  12. 99.99 chance they are not the split style. Dayton’s are simple and no impact needed to change one if you are in a bad spot. They are heavy and the brake drums are expensive.

  22. I grew up in Baltimore in the ‘60s and remember the red cement trucks from Harry T Campbell - they were beautiful with lettering like a fire truck. I’ve searched the internet for pics of info on the company with no luck. I remember talking to one of the drivers who had a nice looking pair of Wellington boots - he said the company gave them all a new pair every year. Must have left an impression because I still have a pair of Wellington’s that I wear.

  27. Not thinking you were a smart ass at all, we really have no idea about how others live and the conditions they live and work in, how could we as we aren't living in their world Well I guess for your cold we get heat in summer, well over a 100 degrees in the old money for weeks at a time Winters can be a tad uncomfortable as well, for me anyway, down 25 degrees f, - 4 degrees Celsius For you blokes that might be a nice day but we dont really dress for it or have clothes suitable for that weather because by 9 or 10 in the morning it generally is a nice day The

  28. Hard to say for sure but not hard to set an angle table to a certain degree and plunge cut the bore with final reaming to size. Only seen videos of beams being manufactured but they are run in jigs and the operation is quick on the manufacturing.

  29. No problems finding brake parts at this stage, almost every R model ever sold in Australia had spokes or spiders so there is still the demand I have heard of some front brake drums are getting harder to get Yes the open air work shop isnt ideal, the oil absorbent floor might sound good on paper in real life it's pretty ordinary We are building a shed/work shop on the block but I can't do everything at once and it took forever and cost a fortune just to get plans approved So am hoping to get started on it shortly, 120 x 80 x 15 feet door opening height Paul

Surpose I best add a bit to the story Mrs Mack is up blocks, literally and doing some maintenance on her So a quick list of what I'm doing New brakes and seals on the front axle New compressor High and low range didn't go into high range properly out if the blue the other day, I have had the bolt on the selector fork drop out before So I'll lift the lid and if this has happened I will refit the bolt and drill a hole thru the head and thread wire thru it and onto the shaft I'm hoping it is just the filter as the compressor has been pump crappy oily air for

  36. They can be difficult for someone that only knows what the book states or how to watch for "green lights" nowadays on the alignment rack. For someone that actually understands what the angles and settings do, why they are there, and what to look for when the spec can't be met, it's quite easy. So many cannot, or do not look back to the basics when they have troubles to find a solution.

  37. Hi guys, I've been lurking here for quite awhile and finally have something I hope someone can help me with. My father drove a concrete mixer for Harry T.Campbell (finishing with Lafarge) for close to 40 years. I'm having a "First Gear" die cast B-61 mixer custom painted like his first truck to give to him as a gift. Does anyone have any photos of any Harry T. Cambell's trucks? Dad was never much of a photo taker and I can't seem to find any on the internet. Harry T. Campbell's ran almost exclusively Macks and was based out of the Baltimore MD. area. Their trucks were red before they mer

  38. Ranchhopper, Thank you very much for taking the time to help honor our older veterans. This past summer my wife and l were in Washington DC on vacation. While we were at the WW2 memorial an Honor Flight tour arrived. What a moment it was to see the men and woman's expressions as they looked around the memorial. "A wall of 4,048 Gold Stars silently pays solemn tribute to the sacrifice of more than 405,000 American lives." (Info from nps.gov) God bless all our veterans.

  39. That's pretty cool that you have an ex Campbell's B-61. You are correct about the paint colors. They were very sharp trucks in their day. I seem to remember Dad's trucks had black wheels with yellow pinstripe spokes.

  40. I have an ex-Campbell mixer truck. It is a 1966 B 61S. It was built all red with a black frame according to the information I got from the Mack Museum. It belonged to two other concrete companies before I bought it. It does have yellow spoke wheels, but they may have been painted later in the trucks life. I'd be interested to see a picture of your finished product! Steve
