    What was the first year of the E6 4V? Would anybody know what model Jake Brake fits an E6 2V?
  2. Are you talking about the intersection near the Gerber plant?
  3. Drive past that garage a lot. The lettering on the front of building is faded beyond being readable now. always wanted to stop and look around. Too late now. Shoulda Woulda Coulda.
  4. Youre correct about the rust. Too bad because IMO they are about the sharpest COE. Very few COE's had nice body lines. F model and the Transtar are about the best. Nothing beats my Marmon for NO body lines. Square box on wheels
  5. I remember Nashua had a couple R models. One in particular was dressed really sharp. Alum front wheels, visor full bumper. I was told a story about Holmes a long time ago that they had a couple trucks with fuel stickers for the east coast. When they needed to send another Mack south they just swapped the doors so the other truck had the fuel stickers. Don't know if its true or not
  6. I have several sale brouchers from the 70's and 80's but not that one. Would love to find one for the Cruiseliner. Thanks for posting
  7. F model shares a lot with the R model for parts. Just hope you don't need windshields. They at Pricey
  8. That's cool. Must be Brand new, I think 77 was the first year of the B cabs. Thanks for sharing
  9. Do your trucks use the Delco Remy A6 compressor?
  10. kinda like how every 8V71 Detroit is automatically a 318. Have owned several 8V71's and many different HP's. Still it looks like a decent truck
  11. If your Cruiseliner is 24 volt then there is a rather heavy gage wire coming off the right side battery box that powers the cab. At least that's how my "eastcoast" Cruiseliner is wired. My "westcoast" built cruiseliner is 12 volt. I can go and try to follow the cab power supply if that helps. The power wire I'm talking about is the same gage as a starter wire on a lawnmower. I dont have much in the way of wireing diagrams but I do own 2 Cruiseliners. I'm more than happy to look at mine and tell ya how there wired. Good luck
  12. Hard to say but if you look at the steering piston behind left front tire that would make this a 5020. Never heard of 6V conversions, but I'm sure someone tried it.
  13. The 5020 series were well known for their extremely strong gear cases. In fact there are articles written about them and there legendary strength. Kinzie made a kit to install 8V71 or 855 Cummins when these tractors were new. It was a hold over from the 2 Cylinder days of high tourque impact from the fireing of just 2 cylinders. Remember these are the same engineers of the 2 cylinder era who designed the "First Generation" John Deeres. I will look for the article and post it if I can figure out how to. But a 318 HP Detroit or 350 HP Cummins installed back in the late 60's and still working toady is a testament to strength and durability. A 4020 had the same stamina but its not rated for that engine for sure. The 5000 series was a much bigger tractor. This being said we all know of 175 or 200 HP 4020's earning there keep
  14. Williams Diesel in Ocala, Fl are the Small diesel Guru's. Have a 03 with a 7.3 they chipped for us. Has 310,00 on it now. Just put 3 injectors in it. same turbo. Truck pulls 38' Gooseneck all the time. 2 high pressure oil pumps, not sure why, 1 water pump, 1 radiator. The truck just goes & goes. Suppose to be @ 425 H.P. been this way since it had 30,000 on it. Gets @ 15 MPG
  15. Sounds like an Awesome project. Why not go for it? Its a toy. What do you have to lose besides time? Any investment could be sold/traded off if it didn't work
  16. Manchester Auto glass 603 622 6737. They have been a huge help for our Cabover fleet. As for parts, Buy a parts truck. Online, ebay. Some things are available at a "Good" dealer.
  17. Ok. Now I see the pic your talking about. That would be a cool Transtar to have in the collection
  18. Another source you might try is Bill Jones in Bow, N.H. 603 496 8802
  19. My 8 yr old Son watches that show. Its his favorite show. I like Jamie Davis & some of his crew. However, if I were up there and needed help you bet id be calling Al Quirring. From an O/O standpoint he seems much more reasonable.
  20. Red, Black, sometimes they had the 3 button set up
  21. Is this the Astro from Westmoreland, N.H.?
  22. Not to be disrespectful but how does that "thing" look anything like a 9670? That thing is just homely.
  23. You may want to bring a Battery along with that fresh gas if your planning on firing it up to load it.
