      No . He bought back the two big ore trucks that went to Sparwood and has rebuilt them which are now for sale.One with a Cummins  KTA600 and one with a DD8V149T.both with Clark 121 rears.

      Ahhh that makes sense ! I heard He was asking the parts guys about an mp 10  I thought maybe he was dabbling in building another several trucks !He was likely thinking on a re power for one or the other!

      Hi Bob,

      I do not recall Brad but I may have talked to him, memory is not what it used to be. I did hear of someone casting the rear cab mount, was that Brad? It was pricy and not machined, just raw casting.

      Really could use a front engine mount. I made a steel strap that wraps under the aluminum mount to stop the engine decent if it cracks though again.

    Giant Macks in the Artic

    now I see where Clark got there 91000lb hub idea from which they did'nt remodel till the 70's. Mack's were a much stronger planetary rear end set up than the Clark's. (needle bearings for pinion gears and "O" rings for sealing) instead of PERMATEX which went hard under heat and leaked worse than the green leakers that were powering them.

    Giant Macks in the Artic
