  1. I prefer the L-cab, but I assume they went with the curvy design for an updated appearance (by 1950s standards, that is). Studebaker debuted a similar looking cab design for 1949 for their pickups and trucks (my 1950 Studebaker shown in photo), and Studebaker continued to use this design up until the end of truck production in 1964. Back to the L-cab, in my opinion, its design/appearance was far ahead of its time and had more legroom than it's competitors. Currently, trucks like the Peterbilt 379 & Kenworth W-900 have cabs that look similar.
  2. Thirty years ago I had a GM diesel run-away in an Allis-Chalmers HD9 dozer. I suffocated the intake with a steel coffee can until the engine shut down. The mechanic diagnosed it as a stuck governor. He repaired the governor then all was fine.
  3. Update: The owner of Northwest Diesel, Arden Gall, passed away Jan. 8, 2019. Rumor has it that his family sent the trucks that were sitting in the yard to the neighboring scrap metal recycler. Hopefully some were rescued, I have no more information than that. Attached is a link to his obituary. https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/sctimes/obituary.aspx?n=arden-d-gall&pid=191217067&fhid=12808
  4. The C-600 is listed as a 1969 G-600, I informed the owner of his mistake. I have no connection or other information pertaining to these trucks. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/748536775943557 https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/635542747362542 https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2937761623001806
  5. How about some information on that Mack L-model dump truck in your last photo? Or is it a B-model with an L-model cab?
  6. tilynb61, did you ever sell your 1964 B755? If so, where did it go to? Otherwise, I may be interested in it if you still have it.
  7. International makes the Lonestar which is a throwback to the C-series trucks of the late 1930's. So I agree, Mack should offer trucks that look like this beauty and they should quit making the ugly Anthem (ugliest Mack ever designed).
  8. The L-cab B-model Macks are my favorite. Great looking truck.
  9. The Mack Trucks Historical Museum in Allentown, PA, has service manuals and operator manuals for the C-series, but I don't know about a parts manual. You can call them at 610-351-8999 and ask.
  10. It wouldn't hurt to replace your fuel filters again, as there may have been a lot of nasty stuff in the tank. Also, if it was bio-diesel in the tank, it may have grown bacteria.
  11. Nice looking Studebaker pickup in the background too.
  12. I don't see these for sale very often. I seem to recall a fella on this forum looking for one a few months ago.
  13. Beautiful truck! I remember when it was posted on Craigslist prior to you purchasing it. I hope it finds a good home nearby so that I can see it on the road! By the way, what will your next project be?
  14. Thanks for sharing the photos. That KB International is much larger than any KB-series I have seen in person. KB-15? KB-18?
  15. Is this the truck that was purchased in Minnesota a year or two ago?
