    In 1994, Dick Kwak drove his 1939 Mack FH 280 miles from Ballston Lake, NY to Buffalo, NY for the ATHS National Show. To facilitate the trip, the drive sprockets were changed to give the truck a little more top speed of about 45 mph. The original EO engine had previously been replace with an EY engine. He entered the New State Thruway at the Amsterdam interchange and headed west. Unseasonable cold temperature and rain made for an interesting trip considering the truck had no heater or wipers. After the show, a more leisurely route was chosen for the 280 mile trip home. Must have been one hell of an adventure!

    A 2002 CH613 with a 460HP E-tech CCRS engine. The best class model for reliability in a pre-tier 3. That's the one I'd be restoring and driving.

    The first picture is how the truck looked when I bought it from Superdog, and the last two are with the axle moved and a new paint job and some chrome.

    First available scapegoat? Our dealership was tanking after 2008 and the owner blamed it on personal hygiene of a couple mechanics and a supervisors mullet. Meanwhile the roof was leaking so bad it filled a customers uncapped engine with water overnight.

    The walls are still going on but I couldn't resist backing the trailer and F-model inside just to see how it fits. 😁 About 6" to spare on the length of the trailer and more than enough height . Now to finish up the sides and hang the overhead doors.

    These cab overs have been at Winchester at our show. The one with D. P. Miller on the door now belongs to the Keystone Museum.

    That reminds me of a poem I heard many years ago- many years. "When I was young, and didn't have no sense- I peed upon an electric fence. It singed my hair, and scorched my balls... and made me shit in my overalls!" Author unknown.

    I've got an '84 Mack MH613. A couple days ago the brake valve under the foot pedal broke off where the three bolts hold the assembly to the floor of the cab. I've checked around a few places and so far i've been told that nobody can get the part and it's discontinued. I've attached a diagram below. The piece that's broke is on the top left, with the three bolt holes. It's the casting piece that contains the plunger. That piece bolts between the actual air valve and the cab floor. Does anybody know of a place where I could order this? Or possibly a junk yard/used truck that has one? Or, if it's impossible to find, is there a way to swap out the entire brake pedal assembly to something more common? Thanks!

    I've had all too much experience with Freightliner "cross cab ventilation", in a blizzard you could see the snow blow right through the cab! Those cabs were so flimsy that a hit in just one corner would tweak the whole cab out of shape, and I've seen a mirror get hooked on something solid and the door would be bent all outa shape while the steel mirror bracket was fine. Those old Freightliners fell apart fast enough on the highway, I don't think they'd survive off road for long!

    This was probably my favorite truck at the Tri State ATHS Show in Winchester last weekend. I've always liked the D-860 GMC's, ever since I was a wee lad, probably because one used to pass by my house several times a week when I was a kid. You could hear that 6-71 coming long before it ever got there, so we always had time to run to the front yard to watch it go by. I really think that truck was the reason I always wanted to drive a truck. Now, after 41 years, the thrill is gone, but... I was thinking that this truck might have been the one Fred Craig had, but I do not know. This was Fred Craig's at Winchester in 2005 or 2006.

    Random question, how many guys have urinals in their garages? I installed a small urinal in my garage today. My wife thinks I was crazy to do this. Her theory is there is a complete bathroom in the Mother-in-law suite above the garage and I can just run up there when nature calls. My thought is--- I don’t have to take off my booths if they’re dirty to go upstairs and it saves time. Any comments.

    There is a service bulletin out there to replace the bolts for breaking.....It lists that its for ASET AC, but they apparently were breaking on AI and AC...... SB213043.pdf

    Yes, it's plowing season already in the Dakotas. Back in 1941 the Town of Pomfret, New York was proud to show off their new Autocar C8044 (four-wheel-drive) truck with optional "Tropicaire" heater. With about 100" of snow a year, that 11 foot wing got plenty of use. Thanks, Mike Lusher. Always Up - Autocar Trucks .

    my 2 cents. My buddys tarp motor was acting like that and one of the poles was broken free in the motor. This was found after he brought it to my shop and he already replaced the switch and wire. I disconnected the wires and hooked up to my multi meter they showed 12v ots both sides in accordance with the switch, if you grounded the motor it would work, I told him the motor was bad he didn't believe me so I took one I had and hooked it up and showed him. Took the old one apart and the terminal was broken loose in the motor.

    The fuse box that goes bad is the EPDM. The fuse box behind clutch pedal. Pull some relays out and check for corrosion. Replace EPDM (fusebox) if any corrosion found. The windshield leaks and water gets in EPDM and causes corrosion.

    It’s my personal opinion that HOAs are unconstitutional because they’re designed specifically to regulate OTHER people’s personal property, and don’t even get me started on how I can’t fathom the legality of forcing someone to be a part of an HOA if YOU own the property... but that’s just my two sense...

    Kscarbal you gave a great reply to that person. I feel that most everyone on BMT supports you for what you do share Mack history with us and you must use a lot of your free time to do it.

    Memo to Ralph: Sorry foamer, but old pictures of old locomotives are worthless- Those locos appeared in public all over the place for years and probably hundreds of images of them exist, and a lot of them very firmly in the public domain. So if you're hoping to make some small bucks threatening lawsuits, sorry buddy, get a life and maybe a job too. You'd be wise to accept the OP's kind off of a penny in royalties, 'cause that's the best you're gonna get!

    It's not you, Lou, it's the Truck. It's very fixable. 370 is a perfect candidate. I'm a little suspicious of your friend blowing your doors off with his 2006 CV713 w/same set up? Does he go by the handle Old Red Mack, Nelm, Mackncheese, Big John, Dcrow, 03 Big Red, Mackvette, Mudman, Byrohoe or R.E.D.? If yes, then he's keeping secrets so he can laugh at you when he flies past you coming out of the pit.

    Yup, crank the glass to the bottom. It needs to be BELOW the top of the channel at the top of the door panel. Then, with some wiggling you should be able to persuade it out of the door. My drivers door panel falls out easily. My passenger door takes lots of very carefully said cuss words! I'll let you use the words I use....just can't type them on the forums LOL!!! Start with George Carlins 7 words you can't say on TV...that's a good start.... I see you are using tape on the door to help with not destroying the paint. I finally had to do this with my new doors. Ugh, the old doors were much easier to work on!!

    I also got the radiator re-cored as well as the heater core, unfortunately they both really needed it. Then I had to press in new bushings to every piviot point in the shutter assembly. What a pain in the ass that was. Sal and Tim at Seabrook truck were able to track down a new actuator and shutter-stat for me as well. So the shutters will once again be functional, I just need to sand them and get some top coat laid down. Currently, I'm trying to get the door glass, weather stripping and vent windows sorted out, but finding the correct seals appears to be impossible. Repop parts can be such a disappointment sometimes. The bracket is for the windshield visor which my friend is doing the body work to. All I had to do is give up half my garage for 10 months and I get free body work on a 1'x5' piece of metal, but the good news is that his 55 is coming along very well. Andy

    The VIN you seek is a CL713 1M2AD62C6YW009499. Its a 1999 plain old ETECH with the engine ECM programmed from the factory to 460XT. This program will not load on a 02 and newer CCRS engine ECM's. .

    This 361 is for sale near me. It has an 8V71 and a 13 speed(I think). It hasn't been run in 4 years but had not problems when it was last run. It has been off the road for 10 years. It has some rust. Worst in the fenders. He is asking $3500 for it. It is in boyertown pa. I am tempted but have spent my money on other junk. Mike

    Andy, I also have an "E" series Mack. It is a "EFU" serial number "1S2671" 1949 model, with only 23,373 miles. I have had the truck for about 15 years. I am missing the R.H. access panel on the hood and am unable to find one. I keep running into brick walls trying to find it. There must be limited numbers available of this series. This truck was originally purchased by the University of California and still has the decals on the doors. If anyone out there can assist me in obtaining the R.H. access panel, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks MACK EFU Michael of Southeast Missouri
