    • I am completing the restoration of a 1922 Mack AC, and looking for a few parts to complete the chassis. 
       
      I’m looking for the lubrication platefrom the front of the seat inside the cab,
      The 2 Cab Sideplates - (I believe the 1922 still used the IM plates),
      One door latch,
      and a pair of hood latches - pics are below. 
       
      If you have, or know where I can find them, I’d appreciate your input. 
      Thanks

  2. With the Museum archive still shut down, I’m getting desperate for prints (January) for an (‘22) AC water pump - model 1100.  The impeller shaft is missing about 1/2” in length (how?) and I need to know the specs for it, and the 2 bearings to rebuild it. 
    If anyone would possibly already have a copy of these prints, I would appreciate it, as I can only run for about 4 minutes before it belches with water only in the block. 
    Thanks.

  3. Unfortunately not. 
     

    Robinson was ‘possibly’ into logging, but I don’t have anything to back that up. And LA doesn’t really support that, even in 1922. 
     

    For some reason, the chassis was chopped and the wheelbase shortened by 12” - but I have no idea when - and the truck had a pto added as well. 
     

    So far everything has been a dead end, which is why I’m trying here. Hoping someone knows some local history out there. 
     

    Thanks

  4. Thanks guys. 
     

    I did find the Corpus Christi link, but like you said they seem to be local to Texas. 
    I will call them tho and see if they moved somewhere between the 20’s and 40’s. 

    Also found a couple of court cases Involving JH Robinson Truck Lines,  but they showed in the 5th district -also Texas I believe. 
     

    Also found this (pic below) which is color correct as the Mack green is how it left the factory (??)

     

    CH Robinson doesn’t seem to be related as they were only in the south East (Florida) at that time.
     

    So, still looking  
     

    Thanks for any ideas or leads !

  5. I’m looking for any info on the original owners of an AC I’m restoring. It was originally purchased by a J.H.Robinson of LA Ca. in December 1922.  It was then sold to the Ross Bros. in Long Beach in 1924. 

    Multiple Internet searches over several years, haven’t discovered any leads, and now that I’m finally getting close to completing the restoration, thought about trying a forum APB request. 

    If anyone would have history or leads on these two owners, I would appreciate your assistance.
    It would be nice to acquire some original photos and history of the truck.

    I have been working on the 27 AC most of the summer & now the engine is free, new valves installed & running well.  The clutch is freed up & adjusted.  It now has a 12 volt starter that came from a Cat Diesel & a John Deere ring gear - that also works well. The cab has all new panels & is permanently assembled & mounted firmly as original.     The rad is reconditioned & mounted- no leaks (so far).

    Today was encouraging in that the truck moved under its own power for the first time in at least 50 years!

    Today was also the first run with the new exhaust system -   I now know I need manifold gaskets any idea where to find them?

    I have an embarrassing question-  Where is reverse???   I have 4 speeds forward but cannot find reverse.

    I still need fenders, name plates & a rad cap plus many small parts.

     

    Thank you for any suggestions,

    Jack

    Can you provide some information on the CAT starter and Deere ring gear part numbers and how they fit up ? 
    thanks.

  7. Yup will be making a new set of fenders as mine have been hacked beyond repair. Just thought I’d check here first if anyone had remains from a previous donor vehicle  

    Sent you a direct msg w email to send pic of your hood to see if it’s in better shape than mine. 

    Thx.
