  1. I'm chasing a similar issue on the RD (E6-350). Compressor intake is on the boost pipe between the turbo and CAC.... Could that be the source of the trouble? It became a problem when the boss man road tripped it to Alberta from southern Ontario a couple years ago, and the compressor was replaced (not sure if new or reman)....but theres still oil being pushed through sometimes.... The air dyer has been replaced twice...and it still sneezes oil sometimes.... Sorry OP; didn't mean to hi-jack your thread....
  2. my old MP7 granite did the same thing years ago, had it towed back to Cambridge from Halton Hills, all because some 14 gauge "trigger wire" rubbed through on the trans.
  3. ....maybe thats were the cut off is set. My "old" 2011 MP7 granite was 900RPM and the PowerLeash de-activated. the RD doesnt have an engine brake
  4. i agree. the bottom step on the RD is a bit of a stretch for me....but im also a "little" guy at 5'9"
  5. I don't have the numbers in front of me, but 26# at hot idle sounds about right.... Maybe a bit low, but.......
  6. In the 5 years I drove the 2011 Granite (405M MP7), I was prompted to do a Parked Regen 3 times. After each of these times (within a few weeks, anyway), some other SCR component would fail, and land me in the shop......DEF doser's come to mind.... Its a roll off, so similar usage i suppose.....not many miles, but lots of hrs....
  7. It’s been either nice or miserable in Ontario the last few weeks. Next week looks about the same .....just pick a season and stick with it, Mother Nature!! Awesome truck Mr. Innes! I love chain drives Good luck and keep us updated
  8. Always loved the I6. Had a 4.2L Jeep back in the day, and knew lots of guys with the 4.0L. Solid, powerful, reliable, smooth....and the sound. Old friend had a 91 F-150 with the 300CI I6, that thing wouldn’t die. Had nearly 700,000km on clock when he was done with it.
  9. I watched it growing up, and both my kids love it now. Wonder how this turns out....
  10. There's a handful of ex-mixer DMM chassis (8X6) sitting at Vision Truck in Cambridge (former Cambridge Mack)....they've been there at least 5 years, not sure what they're doing with them.
  11. I run a similar rear suspension in the RD (Hendrickson RS). It rides HARD empty, its better loaded. Stil rough over sharp bumps even with a good load. Sure-footed as anything in the sloppy stuff.

    I have a buddy that runs an "automated" SPIF dump, and he doesnt care for it....leads to some sketchy situations as to when the lift deploys. More and more around here are going to twin steers. If its GOTTA be on the ground, you may as well have some control over it. The scrap dealer we haul to just bought a KW twin steer, and he says theyre not going back. All the new trucks will be twin steer. the granite sold today, so i had to empty my junk out of it, and drop it off to be safety and e-tested. i hope its as good to the new owners as it was to me/the company. istared driving it in 2012 with 36,000km, parked at Mack today with 247,96Xkm and 882Xhrs
