  1. Yes it would be very classy David So anyone got any ideas They had some interesting different logos that I can think of back then So any input welcomed Paul
  2. I am getting new seats for Mrs Mack and am splurging far more than I should so figure if Im gunna get strung up for spending with out seaking permission I might as well make it worth my while In for a penny in for a pound so to speak So the seats Im getting come in two fabulous colour choices, black or black I have asked about getting them retrimed in a colour better matching the interior of Mrs Mack and was going to have vinyl surrounds and cloth inserts Was thinking about getting the period correct Mack logo embroidered into the back rest Mrs Mack is 1980 ish ? Depends which plate you read it off So my question is, what logo was correct for 1980 ??? Havent settled on just a dog as thats pretty common and Mrs Mack is anything but common Thanks in advance Paul
  3. No smoke out the exhaust means no fuel I reckon iys something very simple Like the sleave on the stop cable has shifted in its clamp and now the arm cant fully return Or maybe the bolt and clip or what ever it has on the wire or cable has slipped or is catching on something not allowing it to return
  4. Injector pump cut off soleniod if it has one might be cooked Paul
  5. If its diesel I would start with making sure that the injector pump fuel cut off arm is fully swung back around into the running position The can catch on the housing Paul
  6. Thanks for that Mack Muster in March and off to Alice Springs next year for 20 th reunion so thought I best glam up the seats a bit Paul
  7. Anyone have a part number for these Never know what we might have in Australia Paul
  8. On Facebook at the moment there is a B model that has been done up Has classy looking seats with dogs embossed on the back rest Anybody know what these would have come out of ? Paul
  9. I like others find it interesting that a country like the Soviet union could operate with such restrictions We complain about the restrictions we have in Australia but I think we are very spoilt and we just dont know it Paul
  10. Fantastic story Vlad You journey a long way for your toys like me Last trip I did was over 5000km round trip for a trailer I had been searching for for decade's The things we do for our hobbies Paul
  11. I never new this, I have never ever locked my truck and have never thought to Paul
  12. I have used a crow bar on jaws to pop them open on grease plates (fifth wheels) that have been a trailer sitting for decades If you hold the handle out with a chain block or come along, so the fifth wheel cant relock and then as said, apply the trailer brakes and work it back woulds and forwards it will no doubt release pretty easily Paul
  13. Came across this the other day Some might find it interesting, if you do watch it read the comments and it will give you some idea on just how badly we treated our troops from Vietnam Our veterans have given us the freedoms we enjoy today, people poo poo Vietnam and Korean wars, what people fail to realize is that we may very well be communist countries today as these unpopular wars really put the brakes on communism Have a look if you like I still have trouble coming to terms with the way we treat our veterans and their families, it still isnt anywhere near good enough in my opinion for what its worth Paul
  14. Well I can see the purple now Looks good to me,sure is some decent size chimneys you got going on there Great stuff and thanks for sharing Paul
  15. You obviously are so wrong here MATE AUSTRALIA is the greatest country But been that you are obviously a American and not a Australian I cant expect you to know or understand 😉👍👍👍👍 seeya Paul
  16. Im having trouble picturing the finished colour at this stage Looks like a great job and huge amount of has gone into the cab so far Am really enjoying watching this build Paul
  17. There was some very classy paint jobs back in the day Suzy aint bad either Paul
  18. Well good to hear from you Billy, no good about the wife and busted hip Hope you're on the mend ok now Paul
  19. Take all the wins you can in life because they are pretty few and far between Well done Paul
  20. Well if they are running true on the spider (spokes) it must be out of balance This February just gone I heard a big bang and thought nothing if it, was heading up to see my son in north QLD Got to Ayr and noticed that a stud had broken and of course the wedge was missing Wheeled Mrs Mack into the only truck supply place in town and bought a wedge and stud The wedge wasnt the right one and was at least twice as heavy as the old Gunite ones Mack used It wobbled pretty bad then so I went straight to Mack at Townsville and ordered the right one and some spares Had tp wait over night but what a difference Also the rim had moved on the spider in less the 90 km's I reckon there wouldn't have even been half a pound in weight difference in wedges but it was worse than driving with out the wedge My point to all this rambling on is that it doesn't take two tenths of bugger all to feel something out of balance in you steer tyres If you have a piece broken off there's a fare chance that might be part of the problem Paul
  21. Did it wobble before the new tyres ? Paul
  22. I came across this a couple of days ago Since it appears many Americans dont even realize that Australia had troops in Vietnam Come to think of it many young Americans probably don't even know that the U.S. had troops there either Anyway, this was made in 66 Paul
  23. That looks very sexy, I have never seen Autocars that neat in Australia Most were relegated to heavy haulage or road train work so had no need to look that nice
