  1. https://www.4statetrucks.com/exterior/semi-truck-jones-performance-fiberglass-hood-mack-r-model_14502.asp?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIyNDyyeqo7gIVE_zjBx04vwWhEAQYBCABEgK2tfD_BwE Mentions that this hood will fit '82 and older if 1" is cut off the back. https://bigtruckhoods.com/collections/r600/products/mack-r600-new-non-oem-hood This one says '82 and later. I know there were 2 different R600 hood lengths. Have heard it is 1" different, 1.5" different, and 2" different! Both of these "new" models say 54-1/4" long.

  3. Did you ever figure it out? Bad treadle valve or a stuck pedal hinge?
  4. The R that I drove most of the time when I was young (and the world was too) was a '67. The interior was about that same color of pale green. Always reminded me of the inside of a school bus. The later ones we had were darker...more of an olive drab color...and more of a flat finish. I think the '70 I had was that darker green...before somebody painted it white. Apparently, the color changed sometime between '67 and '70. Looks like the throttle knob is missing. Sure hope he can find an original one to match the fuel shutoff. They look a lot better than the plastic replacements you
  5. Older RD hood had same cowl shape as R. Newer RD had a square side, more like the Super Dog. Also remember that there were 2 different lengths or R-model hoods.
  6. That red R-model makes me cry! Gorgeous. Steel dash. Quadruplex. Only thing wrong with it is that is isn't sitting in my driveway.
  7. I have this one, too. It's actually pretty informative. Seems like I bought it off the discount table at a book store for $9.95. Of course, that was a loooooong time ago!
  8. I found a brand new one on eBay a few years back. Seem to be several used ones out there, too. Wish I had swapped that new one out for an old one before I sold the truck, though!
  9. Yeah, I wouldn’t use Quaker State either. Lots of folks did. But I took too many apart that were gummed up. I think it was okay if you got it hot regularly. But, around-town-mobiles seemed particularly bad to gum up with it.
  10. A Yenko Nova with a 502...cool. Saw a flathead Ford in there with Offenhauser heads on it. The story of the actual Miller/Offenhauser engines is really cool. Fred miller was a character! Well worth reading sometime. Lots of websites out there with information on them, but the milleroffy.com site is a pretty good place to start.
  11. I did not realize that JOT was an offshoot of ATHS. Very interesting...
