  1. Last LTL?

    I am sure that you couldn't find and build one for 100k though. Good luck finding any parts:)
  2. HI I'm Kyle and I'm located in Clinton, LA. I have the pump, tank, driveshaft, fender skirts, chutes, water tank, gear box, drum and pedestal for sale. I am asking $4,000.00 cash/certified funds for everything. It is a one year of service live 10.5 cubic yard Mcnelius barrel that was put on approximately in 2010. It was mounted on a 1994 Mack DM690 that I am converting to a dump truck. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
  3. r686st happy birthday

    Thanks for all the well wishes! I'm finally the dirty 30:) and considering Harvey is affecting us it still was a good one.
  4. How long is the blue dump box and how much do they want for it?
  5. Steel dump boxes

    I am looking for two 16-17 feet long steel dump boxes. I will be mounting them on a 1986 and a 1994 Mack DM triaxle trucks. These trucks are former concrete trucks if that gives you any idea about what they look like. Let me know what you have for sale.
  6. Pictures of the Week

    I was thinking the same thing Back in Black!!!! I think it was before my time but I've heard of 3 Mile Island. Can anyone give me some details as to what went down?
  7. I have a 1992 Mack RW 613 "Superliner" that has a VIN# 1M2AY74Y5NM006538 that I am trying to get the wiring from firewall to headlights/turn signals. I have received two parts with the numbers 25038822 and 41mr3655 the problem is that they are too short and have the wrong ends to connect to the headlights. I have contacted the dealer, Mack Historical Museum and one department at Mack Corporate to no avail. I keep being told that is the correct section(s) for my application. Can anyone help be find what I am missing?
  8. Thank you so much for all of the responses! I have contacted my dealer and they are getting Mack to send the blueprints to them as we speak. I also ordered the wiring literature mentioned above from Mack and I should receive it by next week. I am hoping between these two documents we can come to some kind of resolution.

    Is the truck still for sale and what is the wheelbase?
  10. Do you have any other trucks that you want/need to sell? Maybe you could share a few pictures and specs.
  11. WOW! You make me want to buy and build another truck!!! That thing looks so mean it isn't even funny.
  12. Fear of . . .Chicken???

    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"!

    What kind of fuel mileage are you getting? What rear end gears?
  14. What size tires are you running on each axle?
  15. VMAC Interface tool/software

    thanks for the information. i was nervous.
  16. VMAC Interface tool/software

    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?

    What is the empty weight and what kind of fuel mileage are you getting?
  18. Hi Everyone it's Kyle again and I haven't posted much in awhile.... I have a 1992 Mack Superliner (RW613) with a E7-350. It has the vmac computer/speed sensor and I want to convert it to mechanical. Can anyone tell me the parts needed and the part numbers? I know I will need a pedal, linkage and probably a new injection pump. Will the manual pedal out of an R model work? The more info and sooner you can tell me something the better because my driver is pulling his hair out because the truck is so slow.
  19. vmac to mechanical conversion

    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.
  20. vmac to mechanical conversion

    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?
  21. vmac to mechanical conversion

    At my local mack dealer( Capitol Mack in Baton Rouge) you are lucky to see an RD!!!
  22. RH Electric window motor

    I think I remember jc whitney advertising a direct replacement if Mack doesn't offer it anymore.

    Pictures?
  24. vmac to mechanical conversion

    I will sell it but you won't like the price:) LOL
  25. vmac to mechanical conversion

    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???)
