  1. Midliner parts are readily available, just not in the U.S. They were sold all thru Europe and Australia, almost all parts can be ordered on line I guess that of risk of sounding rude and offending people in the U.S. and that is not my intention at all Americans are pretty spoilt compared to the rest of the world for spare parts shopping and arent used to shopping for parts like the rest of the world are We use a lot of interpretation of what parts are, we have our own books in languages we will never understand and before the internet we would telephone overseas, wake up a

  2. I have never done one, but I highly doubt it because there is not enough room between the frame rails. The exhaust manifolds were very close to the frame rails on those RW chassis. V

  3. Speaking of land, real estate, sunshine and warm temps, I did look into homes for sale in Florida, kinda just for the heck of it. I saw no affordable homes, but there were some beautiful mobile or modular homes listed that seemed very reasonable. And I mean they were really nice, for like $38,000, beautiful places. We actually went and looked at several, but they were either in a trailer park, or a mobile home community, which is pretty much...a trailer park. And they were all nice too, fine looking 'hoods. The problem was, while the home was affordable, the lot rent at every place we

  4. The other Mack is one I have posted here before, way back on March 16th, 2016. That shot was taken at it's original home in Pennsylvania. On Saturday, I photographed it again, at it's third home, Edison, GA. It was recently replaced by a newer pumper and was just sold to a collector in Florida. Glad I caught it before it went south!

  5. It has been a while since my last post here, but that is because I have not photographed any more Mack fire apparatus. This past Saturday, I photographed two Mack pumpers. The first one was the first Mack MC chassis equipped with the 285 horsepower Mack diesel. At 41 years old, it is still in front line service in this rural Georgia county, but there is talk of replacing it, due to it having a standard transmission and only a couple members are able to operate it.

  8. for me ... it's too bad.... the Midliner is a great truck! unfortunatley, the removal of great vehichles is faster now than ever... Your "R" model is also great..... Save all the parts you can save, stay here to chat with us, and keep looking for people that give a damn about what you have... I work on "B" models off and on... and I'm currently working on an '86 RW 713.. When I call for parts...... (know one cares.).. Fix that problem and you will run that "R" model for a long time...

  11. I got the aluminium 273 rear ends out a that truck after it broke. She bent in half turning the corner off Manheim onto Belle Plaine. The rear ends are now in a Lindahl truck I painted & sold to a friend in KY.

  12. Just got these trinkets. I'm told the smaller dog is from the 1940s it's a early concept of the bulldog mascot. The other was introduced in the 70s they were apparently given to Mack executives as paperweights. The truck is possibly pewter it's heavy and well detailed it's also supposed to be only given to Mack executives. Anybody know anything about these I'd be happy to hear from you.

  13. Agree. I'm guessing the shorter units are less critical and only when they get into the tall units do they do proportional to lessen the jerkiness. But with someone that is less then happy about being up in anything, proportional would be a good thing in any bucket. Back in HS, I was in the Ohio Power Explorer group. We had monthly get togethers and went to various places to see all about power transmission. We got a tour of the service dept and they took us up in a bucket truck and played around a bit. They jerked the control to get it bobbing around to see how the fiberglass arm f

  14. Yes a bunch of us lost interest with the kneeling then with the virus no more fans I don’t even watch any of it anymore Super Bowl I never even turned on the game at all I was outside working on my garage .Too bad also bunch of us used to get together at sports bars watch our favorite teams now all the gang we hung with we’re not interested at all ... but I’ve grown to figure out like a lot of people that opened up nine full hours of working around the house and garage instead of sitting in front of the TV I guess it all worked out... bob

  18. On my etech ,it was the injector oring that was bad.it would put fuel past the injector hold down cap threads and contaminate oil...you can tell by running engine shortly without valve covers .the culprit injector cap will have less oil sitting on it since the fuel washes it away.

  19. Pull the fuel supply pump . Check for play in the shaft, should be none. You can spray soapy water on shaft while shooting air into the inlet and outlet abs check for bubbles, other wise here’s what we used to do . Put fuel dye in the primary (first filter) and run the engine for about 45 seconds to a minute. Shut off engine and cap off fuel return line on the side of the block above the air compressor. Hook a air pressure regulator to the inlet of the primary fuel filter inlet and pressurize to 40-50 psi . Drop the oil pan and use a black light and look for leaks. The EUP pumps will alway

  23. Mack-Pierce, 1972 Mack CF-600 after Pierce Refurb. Not sure the exact (circa mid 1990's) year the truck was refurbed but it was still complete Mack Chassis and Running Gear. Great truck and I remember it fondly.
