  1. Those are off of a Mack CHU 613 Rawhide. Mine is a 2013 with these mirrors
  2. The 686 meant it was a 300hp(I thought) 688 meant 350hp. Someone can sure prove me wrong though.
  3. I have a 97 e-7 427 drop in Mack crate motor with the high volume lower psi oil pump. We noticed no difference in the Jake from the original engine. It still sucks. They aren't good jakes in those years. We also have the factory butterfly valve in the exhaust pipe which will double the performance of the jake, so its just poor instead of sucky. If you get all 6 banks working you probably still won't be happy but its better than nothing
  4. Heater fan will always run, tried that, so now I'm leaning more to that we could be losing prime. Will try and find the stuff to try the pressure and sight glass idea.
  5. My first thought was we were losing prime but have come to realize that we aren't. As soon as you turn that key off and try again it'll fire right up or try one more time guaranteed. You could crank it for 30 seconds and it'll never fire, you could do this 4 times and it'll never fire. Turn key off and back on and crank a second and poof its running.
  6. Have owned this truck for over 20 years so know it inside out. Have had trouble starting it lately, crank it for 30 seconds and it won't go, crank again and it won't go. Turn key off and pump up injector pump and it'll fire up instantly. Just seemed strange. Have now figured it out that if it doesn't start within the first 5 seconds of cranking, turn key right to off, try again and it'll fire right up. Next time it might fire right up too. So its almost like the fuel isn't getting turned on. Its a 95 Mack with the E7 350. Only thing I'm thinking is that its the computer or m
  7. 95 e7-350, also only 26 lbs of boost. Pulls good tho. Our 427's get over 30lbs. 23000hrs on the 350. Only time I've ever remember a flutter issue the the throttle threw a code and had to replace the foot pedal
  8. If you tap the dash to the right and below the speedometer, thats where the buzzer is. Quite often ours quit but start once you tap where the buzzer is situated
  9. On truck 2 we had the issue and it was cracked head port which would allow intake air from turbo to pressurize coolant system. coolant never leaked back tho when it was stopped. Heads got checked for cracks was how they found it after we did so much other stuff
  10. Had the peanuts in the power divider giving us grief and clunking. If we engaged the power divider it wouldn't do it anymore. 46000 mack rears airride
  11. I think my 95 and 97s are terrible. Have the butterfly in the exhaust too which helps as the Jake isn't much help
  12. I did my 95 Mack, it had eaton rears and Mack front axle. I was able to get the rears from a truck parts shop but the Mack front I had to get from Mack. I couldn't find any at a wrecker. Prices weren't that bad but I'm not sure what the rear mack ones will cost. In fact I can't remember what I paid for any of them now. The bearings took some figuring out and a good old parts man came too my rescue as numbers changed a bit. I jumped to 24.5 from 22.5 as well and now all my trucks and trailers have the same tire size which is what I wanted.
  13. We've had issues with vibration at 55 mph and king pins and bushings are wore. Sometimes we can change front tires side to side and it goes away.
