    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.

    I was told that the Kenworth that had the V-12 was hauling butane tanker out of LA and when they got out of site they hooked the truck fuel system to the tanker.No one will say if they ever got caught.

    1970s roof marker lamps wanted

    there are two bends to that style. The ones off a L model MACK and the ones off a B model Mack.The L model is a lot flatter than the B model.

    Engine cleaning

    I find oven cleaner from the wifes cupboard then wash off with garden hose.Takes the grease off the rear ends and trans.with no problem. just let it soak for a few minutes after spraying on. Practice makes perfect.
