    Frantic phone call

    Bad deal all around, but it sounds like it could have been alot worse. Hopefully nothing else is damaged. Andy

    Spotted on Craigslist

    https://boston.craigslist.org/nos/hvo/d/wakefield-1999-mack-cl713-elite-10/6816312317.html I have no affiliation with this rig, I stumbled across it on CL and thought it was expensive, yet interesting. Andy

    1969 International F210D

    I'm looking for a truck last seen on the south shore of Massachusetts a year or two ago, any information would be greatly appreciated. I copied this posting from the posting I put on Craigslist. WANTED- Looking for any information available about a mid to late 60s international R series. The exact year and model are not certain to me. The last information I have is that roughly 1 or 2 years ago it was sold by South shore pile driving in Marshfield, MA as a cab and chassis. Previous to that it was owned by R.E.Taylor pile driving and is likely still painted grey with a black chassis and fenders. It was purchased by Taylor around the mid eighties from Wyoming as an oil field Derrick crane or Gin pole truck. He converted it to a pile driving rig and used it up until 5 or 6 years ago. He then sold it to South Shore Pile Driving who removed the Derrick and currently still use the actual pile driving rig. I haven't seen the truck in years, but as far as I know it was an operating vehicle after the boom was removed. It is a tandem axle long wheelbase truck with some sort of Cummins diesel and a 5+4 transmission. I included a picture of a truck that is very similar to the one I am looking for. If you have any information it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Andy. My phone # is (978) 808-9496, call text or email me at aarsenaultjr@hotmail. Thanks again.

    64 B61 in Mass.

    This guy has a bunch of old iron, used to operate under the name ARAN trading, not sure if that is still the case. I can look at these trucks or get more pictures for anyone seriously interested, they are very close to me. Andy
  6. Kudos to you for finding an actual body guy, looks like top notch work. Andy

    Real Swift

    That's a funny but sad article. However, I don't know how are cameras gonna do anything except for capture some of these events on video as opposed to pictures. I think the SWIFT HR department is where most of the issues stem from. Maybe offer a better wage and try to attract more qualified employees?

    Growing tired of the Kavanaugh show

    Im not too fond of one side or the other, but it seems pretty obvious that this guy is getting railroaded. Either way, I'd like to stop hearing about it. Andy

    And he'll be driving again tomorrow..........

    Certainly didn't say the glare was an excuse, just a factor.

    And he'll be driving again tomorrow..........

    Bad deal for sure, hope everyone came out okay. Judging by everyone in the video putting the hands over there eyes, I wouldn't be surprised if solar glare made things worse.

    Sounds good, did you say you were gonna put a 400 Cummins and a 13 speed or something like that? Andy

    Stop off in Mass Monday

    Brockton is Rocky Marciano's hometown I believe. I wish I was around as well, I live about an hour away and will be working even closer in Needham. It just probably wouldn't work out for me. Good luck, Andy

    1969 International F210D

    That makes sense, the upper push valve is for the tractor, I assumed the lower would have just been for the trailer. I think the air system is going to be the most challenging part of the truck for me because of how little I know about them. Thanks for all the replys, it is very helpful. Andy

    1969 International F210D

    That would make alot of sense I suppose, but everything still was connected. Also both push pull valve appear original as well, they share a bracket and have IH branding on them. Sorry for the bad pic but it might help. Andy

    They appear original to me, but maybe one was added? Andy

    1969 International F210D

    This is where I get confused, I have the Dry Road/Slippery Road switch, as well as the "Truck Tractor Protection" flip style valve. One side is labeled NORMAL the other side says "EMERGENCY'. Then on the other side of the dash I have 2 push- pull style valves, one I pushed in to move the tractor as you would suspect and I presume the other was for airing up the trailer. The system was cannablized when I got the truck because it hadn't been used as a tractor since at least the mid 80's. Things were disconnected, plugged and in general disrepair, I made a good drawing of the existing system but I think it will have me chasing my tail due to all the uncertainties. Thanks, Andy

    Sorry for the delay with pictures, I've been getting so little done it's depressing. I'm hoping to spend some time on it this weekend. The schematic from another make truck may be helpful. Here are some pictures of the dash valves, I'm not clear how the dash mounted tractor protection valve is supposed to work. Andy

    I also got a new battery box, the ones I had we're in real bad shape and I wanted a box the could hold all 4 batteries and fit on the passenger side of the frame, behind the stack bracket. That leaves the DS with enough space to mount the hydraulic tank my buddy gave me. Andy

    In Search Of Good ENDT673 Massachusetts

    This may be no help at all, but Rydemore truck parts in Fitchburg has helped me in the past with non Mack parts. I've also seen that Global truck traders always have a bunch of Mack parts advertised, they are in southern NH and may be worth a shot. Good luck, Andy
  24. It always seems bittersweet getting items sandblasted, but it sure gives one a clean slate to start with. Can't wait to see the project take shape. Andy

    Just a guess, but maybe Bushles Per Acre? Andy
