  5. I was planning on adding a coolant heater to my Mack 673 by removing the large round port above the starter I made a tool by cutting a large washer and welding it to a socket to get a good fit but it won't unscrew so them I may go with a tank style heater . any thoughts ?
  6. In the mid 80's I bought a 53 GMC with a 302 and when replacing a leaking valve cover gasket I found a very dirty top end the engine had been rebuilt in the 70's . Then a few years back it started leaking antifreeze and needed a head gasket I removed the valve cover and the top end was clean very clean I pulled the side cover the lifter also clean I had the valves done when the head was off then put it all back together I never scraped or wire brushed anything it was so clean the only oil I had used as Rotella 15-40
  7. I drove Mack oil field truck that did the same thing on one side the fix was making the axle stop longer .
  8. When putting rear tires on to bring it home I found that jacking up one axle both sides that they won't turn I had to jack up both axles both sides to get the wheels to turn .
