  1. Paul, I didn’t know about the guy in Toowoomba. Had I known about him, I would of bought one of his dashes in an instant! Dads valueliner has square lights with the writing on the lights.
  2. Should make it look kinda professional and a lot neater. Saves me making stickers to identify each light. My speedo is actually a tachograph. A bit before my time but it would record your speed and driving time on a bit of paper inserted behind the gauge. Im going to make something that looks more standard so I can run a normal speedo.
  3. It’s an amount set aside by your employer (9.5% of your wage) and put into a fund which you can’t access until after a certain age, around 65/67. At the moment the elderly can receive a pension, but with superannuation every one will look out for themselves. In theory.
  4. A few old blokes I spoke to gave me a bit of advice. 1/3 on fuel, 1/3 for the driver (me in this instance) and 1/3 for the truck. This is just a guide. Obviously if you swing a few spanners you can help with the cost of maintenance. But the fuel costs and driver costs haven’t been too far from that. Down under we have a few extra costs with employees like superannuation and workers comp which I’m not sure if you have over there.
  5. I’m in the process of putting a new dash in my truck. They don’t make tan ones anymore so have to get a grey one and paint it. Found some awesome lights. Basically in the bezel you can have etched what the light is for. Completely custom so you can have anything you like. Have included a pic of my dash and an example of the lights.
  6. Sorry to hear that Billy. Some sad news, hope you get through it all ok.
  7. Where abouts you located? Aluminium tanks are available in Australia with the step cut in to them. Only in 26” not 24”. Also there is a stainless grill still available from Mack. I bought one for mine from Gleemans in Australia.
  8. I managed to find a pair of bostrom Viking T-bar seat on Gumtree a while ago. They were even brown! But my truck had holes in the roof when I bought it so roof lining and rear wall lining are stuffed.
  9. Paul, try tylden heritage. They have seats or seat covers with the bulldogs on them. Might just get you what you need.
  10. Paul, that one was steel cab but I have seen a few of the fibreglass cabs around. I remember dad saying that old truck weighed 12t. There was an Australian truck manufacturer years ago called Leader and they used fibreglass Mack F cabs.
  11. I had a 38 housing that cracked in that same area, on the left hand side. Apparently it can be done but I ended up find a new housing cause labour rates here are very high.
  12. Based on the green colour I’d simply have a guess and say Euclid? Not sure how many brands were painted green back in the 70’s?
  13. What needs to be done to the axle housing?
  14. Not too sure. Looks like a dump truck but with no dump body. As for breed...
