  1. another one bites the dust...always all mack K-Five Construction has brand new Peterbilt tractors...must be following the Stark family
  2. 2012 CHU 613 - MP8 13SPD - 2 line wet kit - full fenders - pinned 5th wheel - durabrite wheels - all the usual stuff fixed - new wiring harness - injectors - starter - alternator - 3 new batteries - new main power wire from batteries to starter - new virgin drive tires - asking $35k - make an offer - steve 630-688-6110 - near Chicago
  3. guy i started working for has done the same thing...about 35-40 trucks...always mack until the 2012 - 2015. now has 3 kw t880s, 5 on order, and plans to phase out all the macks. saw the Stark Pete at homer yesterday and today, looks sharp
  4. had full lockers on my pete...never, never, never used them to get IN. regular diff lock to get IN. full lockers to get OUT. as far as I am concerned,if you want me to get in...fix the road. If you use the full lockers to get IN, you'll either break something or won't be able to get out. Regular diff lock should be fine. That is why they make dozers!
  5. found this diagram on the interweb...says "drivers footwell" sounds simple! haha 8e56958b-0fc1-4644-abbe-310a02747259_D__Mack+Pubs+DVD2_Disc+4_viewer_internals_conlocplate.pdf
  6. ran 1 set of double coin drives. JUNK. barely lasted a year. you get what you pay for. if you buy a $200 tire, you get $200 out of it. just my 2 cents
  7. dump trucking in chicagoland is no longer fun. Time for a new career
  8. https://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/hvo/d/1976-mack-rl685ls/6691231560.html just looks cool l
  9. no kidding? the way I understood it, the MDrive can't be in gear and have the PTO function at the same time? Maybe there are different ways to set it up...company here can't spread with their MDrive tractors, only the allisons
  10. M-Drive won't engage the PTO while in gear, while an Allison will. Big negative in my book
  11. saw s&h, also ALWAYS mack trucks, between the s&h, s&s, and united leasing fleets, with a green KW. Not good
  12. could be the air compressor, friend of mine chased his pushing coolant out the overflow for a long time...finally put on a new compressor and it went away
  13. That's crazy...in Addison they put the trailers in a different "contractor" lot outside the fence
  14. they pick the trailers up at a yard just outside the fence at ups. where the ups spotter puts the trailer so the "contractors" can haul them
  15. how do the teamsters let a bunch of scabs haul for ups when it's not even christmas time when they're swamped?
  16. caught this nice superliner just as it went by today
  17. Hiding in traffic I caught the palumbo superliner yesterday
  18. air compresser? friend has a 2001 CH and thats what the problem was
  19. Curly's KW stayed in the family and went to his bother in laws farm in Rochelle, so you might still see it around
  20. no more granites at omega, not much of anything left there i don't think
  21. i know some of the early emission motors (or most) had a lot of problems, but what could a guy expect out of a 2008 granite tractor with a 350 hp MP7? Supposedly low miles, looks pretty well taken care of...but I'm just not sure about the motor and all the emission crap
  22. oh yeah, up and down I55 from the city to the laraway dump MT Transit or something like that now...same colors
  23. my 01 pete with the c15 had an exhaust manifold leak for quite a while before i got it fixed...but i only run local, not 1000 on the road. I think it would be ok, but you never know, i guess
  24. out of warranty, so didn't bother with the dealer...but everything i've heard says they will deny warranty repair even on brand new trucks with 10,000 miles and call it "fuel contamination"
