  1. Thanks Vladislav. Buddy, you probably should have had a few of those big springs made up and you could sell those to guys like me that need them😁 I sure wish I could find a spring for mine since my original one is broken.
  2. Also, I did notice my big spring was also broken, so I'm going to have to weld it, or get creative like you did. I wish I could just find a new spring. I wonder if PAI has those springs and boot?
  3. I appreciate you sharing that picture! It gives me an idea what to expect when I pull that shifter assembly out. Looks like whoever did that spring for you did a fantastic job. That whole assembly looks like new in your picture Vladislav.
  4. I apologize guys, I'm still trying to figure out how to post pics on this site. I was able to get the shifter pushed back up into the boot and where its supposed to be. Everything went back together just fine when I let the cab back down. https://ibb.co/6wd2v3Q https://ibb.co/ss8vk9Y https://ibb.co/jwPQv5J
  5. Got a little update on my MH613. Turns out that the shifter was stuck in the aluminum housing. It took a little persuasion with a pry bar, but u got it separated. Thanks @Vladislav and the rest of you guys for pitching in and giving advice. One thing I noticed, the clamp that holds the bid rubber boot the shifter and big spring assembly is incased in on the underside of the cab was gone and when I did get the cab up and the shifter assembly separated, the shifter and spring wanted to fall out. Not a big deal, shes starting the early stages of a rebuild.
  6. Sorry guys, I had been on the road and had not been home to to work on the Mack MH. I can see its gonna take some work to get this shifter separated and the cab up. It's just odd that this thing is that stuck.
  7. Ohhhh, ok. LOL sorry bout the misunderstanding. I didn't think it sounded right bout being in reverse, but I misread your response. I know what you're saying now. I will look and see if I can figure out why its stuck. I just cant believe it's that stuck, but I just wanted to make sure there wasn't anything else I needed to do to get it free and get the cab jacked up.
  8. Thanks Vladislav! I've owned several cabovers through the years, but this is my first Mack. I have always liked the MH cabover Mack. Now if I understand, are you saying i need to put the truck in the reverse gear to unlock the shifter so it will go up with the cab when the cab is raised? I had the shifter in the neutral position, but I know theres something I'm not doing correctly because the shift is stuck really tight. Thanks again for your help!
  9. Hi guys, I just bought an 1989 MH613. The previous owner could not get the cab raised, due to a leaking hydraulic line for the cylinders. Well, I fixed the leak, added fluid and got the cab to raise like its supposed to, except I have a problem. When I get the cab about 1/4 way up or so, the gear shifter is stuck. It's trying to pull the shifter outta the cab, but its hitting up against the cab/doghouse shifter opening and the boot is pulling on it also and about to rip. My question is, why won't the shifter separate from the base and has anyone else experienced this? What is the solution to this problem. Thanks guys
