  1. Sorry I tried to load a comment yesterday The photo is from the Mack Australia facebook page so shifted across for all to enjoy, even those without facebook Caption from the photo bellow #ThrowbackThursday to 1966 where this hardworking B61T Mack is ploughing through the bulldust near Surat in South Central Queensland. Bull dust on dirt roads was very common until the beef roads scheme in 70's started The dirt gets that pulverized it goes like talcum powder and feels like your driving thru deep water as pulls you from side to side Lots of speed is requi

  2. Dont worry Swishman I don't know two tenths of stuff all about them either I need one and I like the old McGrath trailers Their tough and seem to last, got me a chassis tipper as I reckon theres less chance of putting it on its side Then I passed one yesterday on a float that has well and truly been on its side Maybe my plan is flawed ???

  4. LOL.. Yes!! I Love it.. It is a Family project. I found it on Ebay about a year ago where the guy was selling the hood and going to part it out. I begged, borrowed and stole to get the money and bout her. It is an early factory air conditioned truck too!! Build sheet from Mack says Kysor but it looks to be a RedDot unit. All original and I am the 3rd owner. We have been gathering parts and still need a few things. These Western trucks are very different and parts are weird.. The 1/32 trucks are a LOT cheaper to maintain and repair and I have a lot to catch up on.. LOL.. We have to decide if we

  8. I will start by saying there are 6 LT's used to restore this one. There is over 3400 hours of labor that were put in by the previous owner and me so if you figure $20 an hour, no one would work on it for $20 an hour back then or now, that is $68,000 for labor. $25,000 to stipe to bare metal everything except frame and suspension and show quality repaint. Then there is the cost of the 6 donor LT's that averaged $9000 each, $54000 as the only way to get the parts was to get the whole trucks. Find an engine $2500, Rebuild that Supercharged 320 Cummins $10000. Imported 22 inch tube tires 10@$400,

  9. This LTL has a 5x2x3 total 27 forward, 6 reverse from Mack. It was not uncommon for West Coast trucks. Duplex into a 3 speed Brownie. As for something to actually drive and haul the Superliner is it. It will pull anything and not break a sweat. It dynoed at 1138hp to the wheels years back and had more to go, dyno quit reading! Have to have power steering, A/C, air ride suspension, air ride cab, air ride seat, to be a little comfortable. I drive the RW, Phoenix to Macungie, no way with the LTL or B-755. they would shake my guts out! Maybe the MH when I get that one together if it were
