  1. Yes it has the 425hp Cat 3406B in it with an 8LL and 50,000lb rears.
  2. Jack,
    Can you help me figure out how many RW713's had the E9 engine?   I'm looking at an '86 and just curious how many had the E9.

    Thank you,


  3. Watts did a complete harness for me when I restored my B-61, it was nice quality, easy to follow schematics, looks original and not difficult to install.
  4. They are nice trucks the Western Star for dump trucks are a better up grade over other trucks out there. I have driven them and liked the truck but if I was given a choice I still want a Mack Granite having driven both.
  5. Can anyone tell me the dates for that show this year. Thanks Jack
  6. I had one in the roof of my B and we removed it right away when we got it the truck and started to restore. If I where you buy a small fan they sell and mount it to the Dash, they work much better and you will avoid all the possible rotting issues around it.
  7. That truck looks amazing, you need to do a post of pictures from where you started to the finished truck, nice work!
  8. I believe we got ours from Watt's, I would check there first.
  9. That Black and white of my truck looks awesome !! I can not wait to see it up close. The details can out better than I thought and you really did great on capturing some of the pinstripe detailing. Thank You
  10. I got my headliner at the time for my B-61 from Watts Mack, have you checked there for a price.
  11. When we did our restoration on my B-61 we made up a punch with a long handle for one person to hold and a large flat spot to hit and I would stand on the frame rail and take full swings with a sledge hammer and just drive them out of the frame and they would fly out when hit naturally we had ground the heads off first. Those that where tougher we drilled out with a magnetic drill. Our frame was pretty pitted when we took the triple frame apart and the parts of the frame that would be seen the inner and outer frame after piming we filled with body filler and sanded and the frame is like glass now.
  12. When the truck was taken from our chapter, the only explanation we got was that "under the bye laws no local chapter can retain ownership of a donated vehicle" even though the intent of the family was that the truck remain local. After they took the truck, the chapter stopped its affiliation with the ATHS and reformed under the ATCA. I don't think there are any ATHS around here anymore after the Wellington truck theft in my opinion.
