  2. Maybe I could register my RD with St. Louis plates so I could haul a real load , LOL In Ontario, Canada my tri-axle is only legal to haul 13.6 metric Tonne or 14.9 tons your money . Jan 01 of this year I am not allowed to use my lift axle. If my truck was a 2005 or newer I would be allowed to with a permit. But because of the age of my truck I can't get the permit. The people that make these rules sure do annoy me .

  3. To use plastic gauge make sure and jack the weight of the crank up or support the weight of the crank some way or you will get a false reading on the mains.This is not uncommon.

  8. Snowdog.....did you look into SPIF'ing it? Looks like you have enough wheelbase. The prices to convert seem to have come down from what I had originally been hearing. My friend is getting his Paystar 5600i done for 14 grand minus the rims and tires. Those Mack CL tandem dump trucks I posted pics of in the mine I work at have been scaling 72,000 KG this week (158732.83 pounds)

  10. What are the oil clearances on #2 and #5 main bearings? You are looking for .003".

  11. Crank journals #2+#5 are the oil feed to the heads.. the cam bearings have an oil gallery that basically goes half way around the bearing, making them easy to warp when installing. Did the cam go in smoothly?

  18. Was just looking for pictures of old Mack military trucks for someone I know, and I stumbled upon an post about some yard trucks out in Taos Mesa, New Mexico, and glance at that rare little W model with that interesting looking sleeper. Figured I’d share! Link to the post for the curious:https://www.curbsideclassic.com/blog/cc-outtakes/curbside-outtakes-more-working-trucks-from-new-mexico/

  27. Hey guys, Been a little tied up lately, but I wanted to post an update on our family B85. This engine has a family history and the story of how we found it and came to own it is borderline unbelievable. With the help of our mechanic Ricky Jones, the talented Dave Amon of D&M Fabrication, and many of you on here we have made considerable progress. We are not done, and we will continue to reach out with questions. Here are some pictures. One is Dad operating at a propane storage unit fire, one is the day we found it, and a shot from today. Cheers! Glenn

  31. Hough's first wheel loader came to market in 1939. It was rear engined to add a higher bucket load capacity. It operated with a gravity powered latch mechanism. Over the next decade, Hough introduced numerous innovations. In 1941, Hough released the world's first wheel loader with hydraulically-operated arms. In 1944, they released the first wheel loader with hydraulically-actuated bucket tilt, which allowed operators to tilt the bucket while approaching a pile of dirt to obtain a full load, a common practice today. Three years later, in 1947, Hough released the world's first hydraulic four w
