  1. Marty I have been gone to Florida for a week. Guess what showed up on my doorstep while I was gone. Now a big fight with them. I paid over $100 to ship it. So we will have words about that. Will send it some other way even if it costs me out of pocket. Tom in Atlanta
  2. Hi Just got your check Will get shaft coming to you. Started looking in parts shed and promptly pulledout a three foot copperhead. Cut its head off but may wait a bit until it gets cooler to resume search. Tom in Atlanta
  3. Still have your shaft and gear in storage shed whenever you want it. I may have those cylinders too someplace . I tool a rear end out of another fire truck which I think had them. But not sure what I did with them. I can hunt if you want me to. I just posted a request for door hinges. Went to take doors off 45 fire truck and one hinge broke(rusted through) and others all about equally as bad. Tom in Atlanta
  4. working on 45 Mack fire engine and when removing doors one hinge broke (rusted through) and others equally as bad. I need a set. Looks like B models are about the same. Anybody got 4, 2 for each door?
  5. I got tired of the open cab fire truck getting wet inside no matter how I covered it. So made a set on top like the 56 Ford Thunderbirds had. Came out much better than expected. I just added a 22 gauge metal strip to make a skirt under the drip rail. It has L clamps on back which pop off. Thanks to Jim Priest at American Truck Parts and Jordan Raney at Sparr Truck Parts Each had different ideas but they both worked. This is the answer to many problems for anyone tired of the interior getting soaked. Acryllic plexiglass from Home Depot for rear window. .
  6. hey skidz believe it or not look on ebay. There were a pair. search L model mack under parts
  7. made a piece below drip rail and above windshield this morning. Did not come out too bad
  8. I like the wrecker in front of it. Holmes 750 extendable booms with a drag winch. Put a maxidyne 5 speed in front of that winch and it will pull hell backwards, absolute winching machine. About second gear is almost the same speed as the 750. The three lines together with some snatch blocks will shame these modern hydraulic trucks. My 1945 Reo got to help a modern wrecker with a sunk end loader. Modern wrecker pulled up to the limit and quit pulling. Reo kept going and came out with the submerged loader to the surprise of young operator impressed with his new truck. When the weight of the wr
  9. Have replaced interior once on open cab fire truck and needs it again. It sits outside and even with good tarps a lot of water gets in. A friend of mine was working on his 56 Thunderbird and asked me to help him set the top on it. Got to thinking what if I made a set on convertible top for the fire truck?. So I got an R model top and made one this morning. Like the Thunderbird I wanted something that would just set on and could be set off without destroying the originality of the truck. Did it this morning .and ok for first attempt. Actually fits pretty good. need to do some more trimming to m
