  1. Too many projects, too little time 🙄😄 There are worse problems to have! Good news: Mack paint is DONE! Body assembly is happening THIS WEDNESDAY! I can't wait to finally see this old girl put together. It's a big step forward. Popped one side of the hood up there just for a visual and got really excited. Finally got my '62 Newport out, now that the weather is starting to come around. And the Freightliner transformation is (mostly) done. Hope I'm not doing too much "contamination" by including that before and after shot. 🤣

  2. The amount of completed and new parts is really starting to accumulate. These shelves are getting full of parts that are ready to assemble. Assembly should go pretty quickly, all the hardware is ready for it. Still have more bodywork and paint to do for the hood and fenders, but just happy to be gaining some momentum!

  3. Well team - it's been a long night and a productive one! My husband assured me (warned me?) that this part would be a real challenge. When we brought the truck home her body panels were in a trailer. We've never seen her assembled. Our guess is that this truck may have been pushed around the yard (where we bought her) by her nose - with a bucket cushioned by a tire or something. The front was really racked in a weird way. Fortunately my husband and the gang have years of experience building race cars and fabricating. Hours and hours later we finally had a good fit up on the hood! Callin

  4. I got my treadle valve back today. I couldn't find one reman or new but I found Precision Rebuilders in Missouri will rebuild them for $187.00. The nice thing is they had it back to me in one week, so many other things I've had done take months to get back. It's a Bendix type D or D-1 (not sure which), part number is 223192.

  6. I dont chime in here very often but will offer a positive oppinion on the 'new Mack truck's' as oppossd to the typical 'anything new is junk' view. In July of 2014 some of you may recall I placed an order on a 2016 Mack CXU 505c+, Eaton 13 speed, Mack S38 rears. The truck now has 1.1 million km on it (just shy of 700,000 miles) This thing has been nothing short of fantastic. The truck has given me superior service and cost of ownership in comparison to my two previous PACCAR trucks that I purchased new (2005 379 pete/C15 Cat and a 2010 KW T660/ISX). I did end up doing

  7. If I was close I would come over and have a good time helping you bolt all those nice clean parts on a nice clean frame way better than trying to repair a part on a truck or machine with five inches of grease and dirt covering everything.

  8. Mack trucks were a very clever design, the bodies were built in such a way that even right up to the late 90's (last of the R models) fit and fitment of panels was well camouflaged so nothing really had to line up that well to give a good appearance Looks good to me Paul

  9. I didn't know the old 220's had a special sound I owned two of them and they didn't make as much noise as the 318 d. d. I drove. Now the 262 I had in my autocar that did sound better on a long pull. Those 220"s were so slow I think the sound got there way before you did.

  10. that list is so true, along with racial issues, and high unemployment, too much free money for slackers, bussiness's closing down, major retailers consuming more small bussiness's, ammunition is high as hell, (if you can find any), scammers have doubled down on scamming, and White People are all racist's... I'm sure there's more.. Jojo

  11. I did some digging into my archives and found the left over parts when I rebuilt the clutch cross shaft on my B-73. I'm not sure if the shaft is the same diameter but these part numbers should get you in the ball park. First, I think you'll need a new shaft if you're going to use ball bearings on it. The brinnelling will not run smoothly over the new bearings. If you put some oil light bronze bushings in, that may do on that shaft. I found two different size bearings for the application, both from Torrington Bearing Company: B-2012, which is 3/4" wide. B-2016, which is 1" w

  12. Speaking of the Museum, their fire apparatus show will be on June 19th, 9:00 AM. Not sure about this year, but there are usually about 100 apparatus on display. Some are even Macks! I recommend getting your tickets in advance online. The line to buy them there is usually over an hour's wait. If you arrive between 7:30 and 9:00 AM, there will be a group of guys with camera's at the entrance, on the left side, taking pics of the rigs as they arrive. I'll be the fat guy with the red beard!

  13. So here it is. I know a lot of people aren't too happy to see a "Slime green Dripoit" in a B, but I have my reasons. None of them are hauling 20 ton up Mt Everest or winning the Indy 500. Just love the sound of a Detroit and the look of a B-Model. Had to get pretty creative with the drivers side engine mount. The steering box was in the way. So i built a engine mount that brings the Detroit mount forward 4". Then I had to make a frame mount that could "Sqeeze" back under the steering box as far back as possible. My first attempt I tried using the stock Mack frame mounts. Even using my

  18. I think we're missing some more details. We don't have acknowledgement that hes releasing the parking brake. When did the truck roll last? Has it been sitting for a long time? What work did you have to do on it?

  23. Yes and ordinarily a body shop will just straighten the frame for you and nothing else if that’s what you want otherwise if you let them repair everything the bill will be way more than the truck is worth .... just a fair warning before you get too involved you’re a way better off to do as much of it as you can it is also going to require a bunch of welding be prepared ...good luck... bob

  26. That bracket on the rear of the front carrier does not belong in that application. Period . Someone likely stuck that carrier in there and didn't feel like taking it off (likely to avoid removing the output yoke) safe bet the rest of it was a little neglected as well.....so it needs to be bushed . That bent rod contacted the bracket (that doesn't belong there) and bent until it broke the bolts. That's about a ten or twelve thousand dollar repair. OR just put a new rod in where the bent one is, replace the side one in the back and cut the bracket with a torch to give the rod room (lol) pr

  27. Check your ABS sensors on steer and drive axles. Transmission is looking for output shaft sensor along with ABS sensors to figure out vehicle speed and needed gear shift. If one of the sensor is loosing signal intermittently then transmission might go into limp mode.

  29. So a little bird just told me that Other Dog has retired. The red KW has been cleaned out, vacuumed, washed and returned to FL Moore and the keys handed in. (Were the second logbooks burned...???) I just wanted to say Congratulations to one of the biggest assh......I mean one of my best and closest friends on his retirement. Please enjoy a safe, healthy and happy life with Zina from Florida now from Virginia. You certainly deserve every good fortune that is hopefully headed your way. Thank you for being a good friend- we do not get to see each other often but I consider you family and if

  31. so "My Pillow" has been removed from retailers like Kohl's and Bed Bath and beyond, because Mike said there was fraud in the election process..... ( that enabled Kamala to win, I mean Biden, no wait... Obama, to win a third term)... It is amazing that there are so many "Wimp's" that own huge business's... What the heck is going on? Why is the Jackass's ass getting kissed at every turn?
