  1. Find someone with an electronic Freon sniffer, evacuate your system with your pump, put one can of R134a in, and use the sniffer. The Freon is heavier than air so check each fitting by starting at the bottom of it. You could even have a leak in the evaporator coil or condenser. Check the evaporator by sniffing at the condensate drain. Could even be at a factory crimped fitting line or the compressor itself.
  2. Thanks for the wheelbase length of 200 inches. What about the bed length and how much does the bed tilt, please? David
  3. How long is the bed itself? Does it tilt all the way to ground level where a car could be winched on the bed or just for dumping material off? What is the truck wheelbase? Thanks, David
  4. He also had a B model sleeper cab truck. All 3 trucks were priced at $3000. Someone plucked the sleeper up.
  5. Try these folks: http://www.restorationspecialties.com/ I know they have stainless steel beaded window channel and suspect they have the small screws and rivets. They have been in business for many years.

  7. It is actually waterloo. What a machine... Here is the link http://waterloo.craigslist.org/clt/3597683309.html
  8. I will take the 2 pieces of door glass. I assume they are new (looks like the original box with part no.) I will send you a private message. David
  9. Quote "And ya i have a 5 and a 4 but with 824 gears how fast do you think the truck will go and im not about to rip the axles out from under it thats why im looking for a box to add behind the 2 i all ready have." Here are the calculations I used for my Mack with 8.24 rear end ratios. You can vary the OD reduction, engine rpm, overdrive ratio (or in your case your 3rd transmission OD ratio) and tire loaded wheel radius to recalculate. With 10.00 x 20 or 10R20 tires, the loaded wheel radius is approximately 19.2 inches. The rear axle ratio is 8.24. S (in mph) = engine rpm x loaded wheel radius
  10. Looks like my 1963 B42 SX with 11R22.5's on the front is 88" wide outside of tire to outside of tire. The rear width with dual wheels is 96" wide. Looks like a pretty solid truck but pictures can deceive.........
  11. Nice truck....... "does anybody know where to get the mattresses that are notched for those sleepers the one in the truck hsa to go but I have never seen anyone selling those notched ones". I see you are from TN. If in east TN you might call Brothers Bedding in Knoxville. The original store up in Halls used to make custom mattresses for motorhomes. If not, they should be able to direct you to someone.
  12. It is on ebay with a starting bid of $20K or you can buy it now for a mere $41K! http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1927-Mack-AC-Bulldog-/150842581576?pt=US_Cars_Trucks&hash=item231eeb2248
  13. "Pretty much anywhere,most of them were just your garden variety Briggs&Stratton lawnmower engines,all they did was use a small fan to circulate cool air throughout the trailer which was provided by blocks of ice,or "blown-in" ice (small chips) this type set-up is what my dad started on many years ago,he said sometimes they'd go through 8-1200 pounds of ice between Jersey and Florida with a load of produce on!....................................Mark" Back in the late 1950's as a young teenager I worked part of one summer with my next-door-neighbor's son at his Dad's Icehouse. We spent eve

  16. We just brought my father-in-law's old 8N Ford to TN last fall. It is now sitting in my barn needing another motor rebuild. It was still being used to bush hog the open fields around the home place. We rebuilt it about 40 years ago. We also brought my old Mack to TN during the same time period.
  17. I have always used transmission fluid. Ran into an old guy last summer who restores tractors (gas & diesel) and he uses hot cooking oil, Crisco like his wife cooks with, to unstick old tractor engines!! Fills the cylinders and let them soak in for several days before turning over. He swears by it. So heating up trans. fluid, penetrating oil, etc. before using may help.
  18. "Where can I get a book or listing of all the different Mack models with descriptions of what they mean?" Here is a start linked here http://www.bigmacktrucks.com/index.php?/tutorials/category/2-antique-classic-mack-info/
  19. I 59 north and south bound lanes just above Gadsden AL going to Chattanooga TN is a washboard for 20 or 30 miles. The north bound lanes are now closed and are slowly being completely removed and rebuilt. Then the state will do the south bound ones. It is really rough when you have a trailer.
  20. Probably in Muhlenberg County Ky (home of the Everly Brothers) and TVA's Paradise Steam Plant. The coal was hauled directly to the plant until they had to burn the low sulphur coal from the western US.hlenberg County
  21. If this is a partial flow filter (which it looks like), I would go to NAPA or some big parts dealer with your existing filter OD and stacked length. Your material looks like felt or woven cotton. If you are lucky you may be able to match it up a cartridge insert type with an OD similiar to what was used in 8N Ford tractors, late 40's Studebakers or '49 to '53 Fords. You should be able to stack 2 of these where your existing ones nest in the steel housing and if you have to, reuse one ot more of the existing washer filters back in the housing as spacers with the cartridge filters to make up the

    A good and really old one. Reminds me of another old saying "I kicked the slats out of my crib when I heard that."
  24. Where did you get the kit? What does it include? Price if you care to share please?
  25. This also applies when you are electric welding on trucks or equipment. Don't put your ground lead where you will have a welding current passing thorough a bearing...
