  3. Looks Sharp, - How is the cab?, rot?, cracks? doors have issues? door locks work correctly?, cracks etc? air ride cab? - single or double frame? - what type of wet line? Air pto? - Miles on truck, miles on major components? - weight? - Wheel base? - axle ratings on truck and extra rear set? - see dash is open, how is A/C? Fans? etc Where in Canada are you? Thanks, Deo
  4. Price? lightweight? dual steering boxes? Where? Amy help coming back across border to NY? Thanks, Deo
  5. sounds more like a $5000 truck if that
  6. Miro, the N14 idea sounds neat.. I was checking out a B73 and figured if the NH855 already fit the other cummins would also fit... as i have a friend with a few extra 855's i think they were all high flow. either way looks like th ebest bet to have cummins 855 and big power would be to swap the trans out too.. lots of work..might pass on this truck ... looking for a truck i can swap to a dump body on and off, possible quick change set up..so a triaxle tractor would be best... liked the heavy specs, as gross weigh with dump trailer would be upwards of.. 107k gross with permit.. for local dump trailer work.. always liked the b models and wish I didn't sell my B81....
  7. Like the title says, any input on a big cam4 in a B73?..the radiator should cool fine..issue may be the trans holding ?...looking at a 20 speed quad box.. Any infor or advice would be great!. Thanks, Deo
  8. What rears weight and ratio?, what frame, hows thetrans?, whats the weight?..what mpg pulling what? what wheel base?, and what color interior?, how are the doors and cab , wear and rot wise...?? Looks great in your photo. Thanks, Deo
  9. Still available?, what year E7 did you have it on?..how did it work for you?..what power? Thanks, Deo
  10. Yeah some of the TV stuff gets really exaggerated... gets anonying some times..but it sure beats dancing with the stars or the american idol crap..I can't take that lol..and I am not a sports fan so its either real work, a book, or some TV I DVRed and can play when I get soem free time. Oh and I'll be a Macungie too ha. see you gys there.
  11. yep I got it going today. Cutting the old mess of wires out solved my problem. The junction box worked out great. I appreciate the help. Now I want to wire all the roof lights together instead of the middle 3 and outer two being separated. Not sure why mack does it like that. I also noticed the rear clearance lights don't blink with the courtesy switch. I want to get that straightened out too. Thanks, Deo
  12. The batteries are not corroded. I had cleaned and used the battery protectant on them already. This truck is a 1996, not a 2000, maybe the forum posted your reply in my thread by accident? Cleaning the battery terminals wouldn't help correct the problem I had. I've yet to seea RD mack with the 4 batteries under the hood. Thanks, Deo
  13. Well, after being sick for almost 2 weeks i finally got to mess with the truck a little today. I replaced the Headlight switch, courtesy switch, dimming switch, all the pertainent relays, the pertainent breakers. I cut out the old spliced rear light harness. I added a junction box in the rear with the trucks "factory 4 wire rear harness" in and 7 wire out to the trailer connection. The breaker / relay will not trip now. and the forawrd lights work correctly, so i think the problem was in the old spliced harness i cut out. But I haven't hooked the rear lights up, as I ran out of eyelets. I noticed this truck has a 4 wire rear light harness instead of 7 wire... is this normal?... The truck only has red, black, white, & brown rear light harness. The mack rd basic wiring diagram #8-50 I found online shows the rear lamp wire colors including green and yellow for the directionals, like the regular 7 wire trailer wire. Although, the wiring diagram also shows a small 4 stud terminal strip with green, red, black, & White going to the rh and lh stop,tail,dir,& backup lights with the black wire splitting to both lamps. So is the 4 wire red, black, white, & brown rear harness corrct?, if so, which will connect with the 7 wire? The diagram shows the 7 wire as: yellow - left directional, green - right directional, clearance - black, tail - brown, red - stop, ground - white. This is like the regular 7 wire sytle light hook up. If this 4 wire tail harness is not correct I will run new 7 wire cable from the front firewall terminal strip following the wire diagram. Any ideas or tips? Thanks, & happy new year!, Deo
