  1. That is an unusual scheme, no idea why they'd do that.
  2. Thank you! Yeah, I was actually surprised to find this shop...a couple of people I know recommended them. It's Purrformance Diesel in Fredericktown Ohio.
  3. Thanks! It's Axalta 77968 which is their match for classic Mack 400 red. I like it too!
  4. I meant to post these photos earlier...I had the pump and injectors rebuilt at a local shop, they charged $1,100 to rebuild the pump and $500 for the injectors. Looks like they paid a lot of attention to detail and the truck seems to run well (that is, without a load on it). I painted a bunch of parts. Some of those parts installed.
  5. I think you're right about the marketing strategies--GMC advertises more of a "professional" angle, Chevy more like a personal truck. Pontiac aimed more toward comfort, Chevy the more basic cars. But as you say, same vehicle, different image.
  6. I read online a while back that a guy drove a 673 duplex back in the day, he said you needed all 10 gears because a toothpick would pull the thing down!
  7. I looked at my parts trucks, one of them had a pulley with a lot less wear. The belts sit up in the top of the grooves and vibrate less now. The part number on it is 302GC2187A; they are still available from PAI.
  8. This is one of the ugliest trucks I've ever seen; sadly someone put a lot of time into building it. It's got a Toronado motor/trans setup with front wheel drive... it may need some TLC. https://www.ebay.com/itm/tow-truck/265109095644?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&autorefresh=true
  9. The 42000 at the end of the ad is probably the asking price.
  10. The belts sit down into the sheaves on the WP pulley, the pulley is definitely worn. Anybody know a part number or where I can get a new pulley? I will definitely try to get a matched pair of belts--I've seen those in the past.
  11. Pretty dang nice looking truck; this photo is before bed was installed. I see it has a gold engine in it, and I like the sign on the left front tire in the ebay pictures. Asking $50,000 obo. https://www.ebay.com/itm/133711225856?ul_noapp=true&autorefresh=true
  12. It actually does smoke but I had some round duct clamped to the exhaust pipe, carrying the smoke outside.
  13. I primed it before starting...had to fill the fuel filter and pour fuel in the inlet line before the primer would pick it up. I'll have to check out the valves. I put new belts on but the WP pulley is pretty worn...that may be the issue.
