  1. Awesome. I will follow your advice! Thanks!!
  2. Thanks. The manual does say filter.. (see pic) but I will just follow your instructions! Appreciate it!!
  3. Hi all. I am getting ready to change the coolant filter/conditioner on my endt865 engine. The service manual references a 7psi radiator filter cap that I need to remove to allow me to change the filter. Can anyone tell me where that might be? Thanks in advance!!
  4. Oh my brother I have all of them... The problem is that they recommend SAE R71 fluid which I think is DOT 3, but want to make sure I ask the veterans on here first....
  5. Any recommendations for a company that restores fuel tanks. Mine is rusty on the inside and needs redone. Thanks in advance.
  6. I just finished replacing all of the brake lines and restored (thanks white post) cylinders on my 85LS fire engine. What type of Brake fluid should I put back in it??
  7. Thanks. I tried that. It's not the correct seal. That site is not very reliable, that is unless timken shipped me the wrong one...
  8. Looking for any info on wheel deals for an RA45 Axle. The Mack part number is 88AX95 however it no longer crosses according to my local mack dealer. Any help is appreciated.
  9. Looking for Battery Selector for L Model. Anyone know where I might source one?
  10. I'm looking for a battery selector toggle switch. Anything like that in your stuff?
  11. Timing was it... after refining it a little she fired right up. Thanks all.
  12. I am getting good fuel... I think... i set up a temp system where the fuel tank was and have good fuel to the pump and the carb... it sounds like it wants to start but doesn't successfully fire..
  13. Just finished reassembling my 707A gas engine after a rebuild. Trying to start it, and i can hear it "sputter" or "hiss" and try to start but no joy... it did back fire once... any ideas??
  14. Yes. and i cant get it to work... Thanks for any help you can provide...
  15. Unfortunately there is not. The part I am lost on is attaching the arm to the sprocket on the outside of the transmission and "how" to do that. At one time I saw that someone posted the instructions on BMT but I can no longer find it.
