  1. Do you have any other trucks that you want/need to sell? Maybe you could share a few pictures and specs.
  2. WOW! You make me want to buy and build another truck!!! That thing looks so mean it isn't even funny.
  3. I love how almost every post ,since I joined BigMackTrucks,that Teamstergrrrl comments on always has the opposite opinion of most on here. I think he/she does it mostly to stir things up on here. I feel as though the SGA and associated groups argument has no weight in this discussion. The food chain has all the right to be there if it is legally permitted and allowed on campus by the school's administration. I think trying to stop them is their right I just think the free market will handle the fate of this restaurant. That is the true "American Way"!
  4. What kind of fuel mileage are you getting? What rear end gears?
  5. What size tires are you running on each axle?
  6. thanks for the information. i was nervous.
  7. Dam! I see it plugs into the pigtail off of the pump?! If that's the case someone cut mine out and tied the wires together so I guess it won't do me any good. Any recommendations for someone in my position?
  8. What is the empty weight and what kind of fuel mileage are you getting?
  9. The truck doesn't smoke to amount to anything just a light haze of smoke when accelerating from a stop. The egts were extremely high(1200 degrees if you were to keep your foot in it) for the first few months I ran it until the water pump went out. I changed the water pump and thermostat and they stay in a safe range of no more than 900 on the hardest pull. What does a pump and thermostat have to do with egts???? I know the gauge tells the story though.
  10. I spoke with Mander's diesel and no help on the mechanical parts. The parts guy said I could add "stage 2" injectors and that should help. I think I am going to have the overhead run and timing checked. After that I am hoping ya'll can give any suggestions on what to do?
  11. At my local mack dealer( Capitol Mack in Baton Rouge) you are lucky to see an RD!!!
  12. I think I remember jc whitney advertising a direct replacement if Mack doesn't offer it anymore.
  13. Pictures?
  14. I will sell it but you won't like the price:) LOL
  15. It seems the truck is a slug in the low gears but the last two gears it pulls well. The truck has a 9 speed eatonFuller transmission, 4.17 gears and a new air-to-air under the hood. Where should I unplug the speed sensor? How do you recommend checking the manifold pressure?(boost gauge is a good indication???)
