  1. Sorry a little rusty at uploading photos but this is it.
  2. http://donwilbur.com/uploads/3/4/5/1/34514782/edited/1948-mack-ramp.jpg?1575419857 Found this by chance, no relation. Listed only as a 1948 Mack but is surly not. Looks like a complete B-73, L Cab and maybe a diamond in the rough. Has heavy cone axle rear. Make Offer.... www.donwilbur.com is where it is listed Located in Oregon
  3. Sorry, the turbo's are long gone. All of the B and LT parts I had recently sold as well. Down to just complete trucks now.
  4. No, Not at this time. Covid has all but shut down my business.
  5. Sounds like a lot of talk but maybe that is all you are wanting. If pulling a head is to expensive and so on a Mack is not going to be an inexpensive toy. Stick with a small block Chevy maybe in a 70's car so parts are cheap and the vehicle is EZ to work on. I commented earlier in this post to help but did not think that it would be tuning into a snivel feast. So replace a piston & liner or two and get the old dog running instead of taking 2 weeks to talk about what you don't want to do. No one said a Mack was cheap so buck-up or shut-up. We are here for advise but you have to do something
  6. From experience a mouse nest is not needed to have the condition you are describing. As said a valve or two is open at anytime in an engine just sitting. Water and moisture are usually the root cause of a stuck engine, be it gas or diesel. It takes a small amount to do damage to a cylinder liner, piston and rings over years of sitting. How the water/moisture gets into the cylinder is more a concern that what it has done to the cylinder. Most of the time it is though an open intake or exhaust valve. Removing the manifolds would tell that story. Other things that can happen are a leak in the hea
  7. Sure, there are several ways to do it. Depends how good the fit is between the male and female parts. If there are groves worn into the female parts putty or cement is best. I think the actual seal rings from Mack are NLA. If you want to take the time get a piston ring catalog from Total Seal or some other ring manufacture, measure the female diameter and width of groove on the male and order rings to match, not the same as Mack parts but will work. Let us know what part numbers you come up with. If that is more than you want to do and have deep grooves in the parts get some boiler putty
  8. The Gold one I have is flat on the bottom to sit flat on a surface. I can cut it to match the one already on the Superliner though.
  9. Nice! There is a lot to work with there. If I didn't have one it would be mine. New wheels and tires on it are about half the asking price. If someone here gets it I got two fenders that are perfect to go on it in primer. Had then for my LTL but I have a really good set on it now.
  10. Wow! That Steering wheel looks like new, no cracks anywhere. Only my observation for Originality but it is on the wrong side of the truck
  11. This is your answer to the question Dayton or Bud hubs? Sorry for thinking you had Dayton hubs to go with Dayton rims. My misunderstanding. Just my ignorance but I have never come across a 24 inch Bud rim. 20 and 22 tube type,22.5 and 24.5 tubeless inch yes. But 24 inch no. You got a photo of the tire and rim?
  12. CEAT tires are on my truck and put on it about 15 years ago and are not made by CEAT anymore. The ML tires are available in the 11.00-24 size are from Specialty Tires of America and their contact info is: Main Office and Factory 1600 Washington Street Indiana, PA 15701 Get Directions
  13. No I do not mean 24.5 rims as they will not fit on 24 inch spoke hubs. What I am saying is changing to a new rim/tire size is a lot of work and finding the part for a 60 year old truck is not that easy ether. The easiest thing is replace the old tires with new ones of the same size and type. A tubeless tire can not be mounted on a tube type rim even with a tub, the lip is a different design. As fare as the STA tire it is period "time" correct for the age of your truck and you need to call STA to get price and availability, they may have front tires but only special order. The 10.00-22 tir
  14. I stated: Went through this whole thing over 15 years ago. There are no major brand american made tub type truck tires anymore. I wanted highway tires and do not know what you use your truck for. That is when the Ceat tires where put on my truck. As you indicated they do not make these tires anymore. This is the STA tire.

  15. Went through this whole thing over 15 years ago. There are no major brand american made tub type truck tires anymore. I wanted highway tires and do not know what you use your truck for. Specialty Tires of America does have 11.00-24ML and 12.00-24ML sizes listed and not ridiculously priced. Speed rating is 50MPH for these tires. I really do not know of any truck that runs these tire capable of 50MPH. You did not specify what you are using the truck for. Regional/Vocational use the ML tire would be fine. There are Mining tires that are offered in these sizes as well and have a higher load r
