  1. Andy Zary was the owner/operator of the 1958 B61. There was a story about Andy and his B61 in 10-4 Magazine a few years back, a great read about a dedicated family man and transport man. Andy has owned the truck for most of it's life, it was a day cab originally, he had a major accident, lucky to survive and then virtually rebuilt the truck. When he rebuilt it he added the mercury sleeper and continued to work the truck. He did the full make over some years back. Sadly Andy's age has resulted in his sale.
  2. Please what was the original engine in your B67, those alloy shutter radiator set ups were mainly for the B615 with Mack 864 V-8 and the B73/75 models. Although, here are some Mason Dixon B models that look same as your B 67, there are no emblems on the hoods to indicate motors such as the V8 for the B615. maybe Mason Dixon had a special build spec for their trucks and with the bigger radiators to cool the motors Any guys know more about Mason Dixon macks, I have wondered for a while what the set up was with their B models
  3. And here is our local sample with it's Mack stable mate
  4. And before Howards bought it - great truck, one of the best looking trucks, especially 1952. The exhausts behind the cab complete the truck appearance It deserves to be cared for and appreciated, What is size is the cummins motor and what is it like to drive? Have fun.
  5. here is your Howard Diamond T next to the 2 Doggie Mack LJT
  6. Maint 1 - I recall that Howard trucking bought that Diamond T maybe 4 years ago, and now new owner!!! Do you know what has happened to the Howard trucking collection, they had this magnificent Mack with the 2 doggies up front?
  7. for the clearance light pads at restoration specialties it is a bit hard to find - go to the catalog PDF and scroll to page 60 - there you will find them, these are the correct rubber pads for your clearance lights and also comes with the sponge type seal as well, you can send an email with your lights, They are a family business and very helpful
  8. For your marker lights go to www.restorationspecialties.com - great people to deal with, they have the reproduction rubber mounts/bases for the clearance lights and the hollow rubber seals for the doors, (see the hollow tube on home page) we have fitted the hollow rubber seal on our B model cab, much better door closing and also a good seal for air coming thru, the solid door rubber does not give an tight seal. With the clearance lights you can fit LED replacement globes, we have fitted them, tight fit but some adjustments and they will go in and when you put the glass or plastic lens into the frame the LED's will be held in place Great project, like the flat fire wall
  9. my dad had the 4-53's in Inter R - 190's - the trucks had 2 gear boxes, one was the standard 5 speed Inter box with 2 speed diffs and others had 10 speed Road - Ranger, you can have a direct or overdrive box, if you want some extra speed go for the 10 over drive, I do recall that the flywheel housing matched the R/R box, clutch you may need to check . The 4-53 and 10 speed were a great, strong and reliable combination. Need to get suitable diff - again an R-190 diff or the R - 200 Diffs are strong / powerful diffs. We recently sold a1965 Inter R-200 with a Cummins 180 turbo motor with a R/R 10 speed overdrive, a 2 speed diff and Page and Page pusher axle, it ran easy 65 mph What truck are you building?
  10. we also just bought 1 for our 10 speed overdrive, tried to replace o-rings etc, but they are old and worn, air leaks are hard to plug - secure and easy to replace and did same on air valve at top of gear box - now peace of mind
  11. What model Mack do you have? Does your truck have shock absorbers on front axle? We are now about order kit for our old Mack, we have done a lot of research, maybe send me a private message or your email address and I can copy you the information and fitting - for us it is a single Firestone bellow air bag or you may be able to fit a double bellow air bag with internal stopper, to protect the air bag. Also depends on gap you have between top of the spring pack Ubolts and underside of the frame. Do you have parabolic springs or ordinary spring pack because this may impact gap between frame and top of Ubolts
  12. Hi Leonardo Thank you. My mum's family go back approx 200 years in the same village and the name was always spelt as Favaro, but who knows names have been changed over the years. We did have cousins in Rhode Island name same as yours, sadly most are no longer with us, but mayde some younger ones hanging around, welcome to the Big Mack site. Harry
  13. Leonardo You have same surname as my mum, there not many Favaro's are you related to the Favaro's from Rhode Island and where did you folks come from? Harry
  14. also Watts had some replicas made for the B model cab, however the front of the visor was a rounded finish, the Lund visor was a square shape
  15. I have spoken and emailed the general manger of the company that took over the old Lund company. He told me that through 4 or 5 floods the old moulds for the various Lund big truck, Mack Inter etc, fiberglass visors were lost or destroyed. He said that there was no demand for the Lund fiberglass visors for the big trucks, whereas they do make the fiberglass visors for pick utes, SUV's and the like. I asked the guy would the company mind or approve someone making copies of the old Lund visors for our use or sale to the old truck restorers, he said they have no objection whatsoever and there would be no legal issues. I did get his approval in writing via email maybe 2 years ago, I will try find the email, to protect ourselves just in case.
  16. Mack Doctor Jr - have you got any information of the system to introduce the hydrogen into the E6 motor. Was the hydrogen pre-made and stored in a tank or is there a device mounted onto the truck that produces the hydrogen as it is needed And any pictures that could be shared? I am very interested to get more information
  17. This guy was saying that the hydrogen was an additive if I can express it in lay man terms, the hydrogen was not replacing the diesel fuel, the motor ran on diesel as normal Maybe it is similar concept to adding Nitro into a petrol motor A friend has rigged up a liquid petroleum gas - LPG - supply to add to his diesel fueled/powered Cummins engine and he gets an extra 25% + of horsepower and torque with the gas being injected into the motor - but he has to watch the pyro meter has to ease up sometimes - but once the LPG tank runs empty then he loses that extra power.
  18. Try the concentrated orange citrus spray, spray on let soak in for few minutes and clean off per instructions - it will remove most glues, even silicon - put a thick cloth under the window so it does not damage any other surfaces And use gloves And it smells good if you like citrus and it's natural
  19. At the 2009 Wildwood Florida Truck show, hosted by 75 Chrome Shop, a guy named Wayne Tomlin of High Performance Research and Development, Bradenton Florida was interviewed about his company's Peterbilt - it had a Cummins engine and Wayne said he and his company had developed a hydrogen system that supplied hydrogen into the motor via the air inflows which produced increased torque and horsepower plus better fuel mileage. This hydrogen unit was fitted onto the Cummins motor. If you google 75 Chrome Shop and go to the Truck shows there is a video of the 2009 show. I will try attaching the Youtube video Does anyone remember anything or has any information about this hydrogen system? Was it real or not? I am told he is no longer in business.
  20. Apologies the system will not allow the Youtube video to be uploaded, you have to get it through Youtube
  21. Attached is the Video of the 2009 Wildwood 75 Chrome Truck show with Wayne Tomlin interview

  23. We have converted an E6-350 HP 2 Valve Turbo Econodyne engine with Intercooler in front of the radiator - ( it came out of an R686 )- to a Tip Turbine with Turbo set up - same set up as the the 285 HP Tip Turbine/Turbo motor in the attached picture. We have fitted the converted E6 into a B model. Have any Mack owners made this conversion and/or know what performance/power the converted 350 produces with the Tip Turbine set up? Our converted E6 motor has the Mack 1070 - 10 speed overdrive gear box that came with the E6 motor and we have 4.17 rears on R11/ 22.5 wheels.
