  1. I got the size wrong Vlad. After checking , I was able to get you some good info that may help you . The RD with 385's has a part # on it of 31674. Thats a 22.5 X 12.25 rim with 3 inch offset . The DM with 445's has a part # on of 13228. Thats a 22.5 X 13 with 3.94 offset. That number is no good any more . But by dimension I was able to get a new number. The new # is 32201TK . The rim part numbers are Accuride numbers . And the way I understand it . The offset is from the centre of the rim , not the outside edge. But I could be wrong , lol . Ive been wrong before . Hope it helps.
  2. I think they are 14 inch rims Vlad. But let me double check and get back to you. I will figure out the offset on them to.
  3. Heres a pic of some 385's on my RD compared to 445 's on the DM . You mentioned your specs. It made me curious as to what rears were in my DM .After checking , It has 5.55 rears. I didn't know but after checking BMT , it turns out its kinda common with a T2070 and 300 maxidyne . I learn something new every day on this site .
  4. I would say that's a good common theme you posted
  5. Now I see why you were asking about tires , lol Congratulations on your new find. Great story to. We have more than an R688 in common now
  6. Yes Vlad, they are 11r22.5 on the back. I agree, they are large but I actually like the look of it. To be honest , I thought they were 425's . Thats what most people run around here. It wasn't till I looked for you that I saw they were bigger. My RD has 385's . I will take a pic for you to show the size difference. The 385's look small beside them , lol .
  7. I agree with you 100 percent about "hammered junk". Normally I would never buy a "site truck" , but the lack of rust was appealing to me. It did look like it was well used. But not as bad as others I've seen .
  8. I agree, some faded paint is easy to buff out. I actually put the back tires on . It had tube type that were cracked really bad. Its got some bent things underneath from off roading. even the speedo drive at back of trans was bent, somehow ? Sure it was stuck bad. The frame is good though. Because it was a site truck most of its life, its never seen salt .
  9. Thanks for your thoughts on the filter Vlad. I don't see any sign of a spin on filter, so I think I will leave things alone . The transmission works and shifts amazing. I believe in preventative maintenance though , and didn't want to have trouble in the future . Thats why I was asking. I'm looking forward to seeing what you want the large tires for . It actually has 445/65R 22.5 tires on the front.
  10. Thanks Bob, its a good solid truck, a little beat up though , lol .
  11. Thanks , I'm slowly going to get it back to its former glory . In the meantime I will use it a little to move fill on some of my friends construction sites .
  12. I agree 100 percent !!!! I've wanted one for a long time and thought I should buy one before they all get exported 😀
  13. Thanks for the reply. I was under the impression its a spin on filter ? I think I must have it wrong . The only thing I can find in the air line to the shifter is this . Has air in and air out . If I clean it ,and tear it apart , It may have a cartridge in it ? Its not very big . On top of the trans on drivers side .
  14. I'm very fortunate to finally have a DM. It was the very first Mack model I ever drove, and I've always liked them. This one is a very solid truck under all the bent parts , LOL It was used as a site truck and never got much attention. Its a 1989 DM 690 , T2070 trans with 300 maxidyne engine. I really like it !!!! I have a question though. Everything I've read says a Mack air shift trans will have an air filter. I can't seem to find one. Do they all have one ? Or have I not looked far enough yet ? Any info would be appreciated . Thanks
  15. Congrats on your new purchase !!!! It looks really good and I'm sure it will make you some $$$$$ Just be careful , Macks are like potato chips , its hard to have just one O ........ and welcome aboard, there's lots of knowledge here
  16. I just replaced the dash solenoid in one of my Macks . I told the parts man I wanted a 2MR2114 solenoid. He gave me a Mack/Volvo part # of 8609-98226WR, the same part # as the very first post. The part however looks nothing like the original. I just wanted to share this and some pics for the next person that thinks they may have the wrong part ( like me ) . Good news is it goes on no problem, and works like it should . This is the original This is the new one
  17. Welcome aboard. Another nut here , lol . I love going for a cruise in an R model . Friends with muscle cars don't see the similarity. I'm not sure why ?
  18. Thanks so much for sharing your pics . Macungie truck show is on my bucket list of things I want to do. Hopefully , one day 😀
  19. Links worked for me too. Your truck looks and sounds amazing .Great job !!!
  20. Great video !! Thanks for sharing. I would probably run over the camera trying to get that perfect shot that you did.
  21. There used to be a repair kit. Like everything else old..... its probably not available now, but I don't know. Though I would share in case its of any use .
  22. This may help a little. I had to fix an air leak in mine to . I just matched the o-ring up. I was fortunate that there was still one there , it had just got worn from old age. I think you are supposed to use a special grease when you put it back together. I just used chain lube . Not sure if that was right. It doesn't leak any more and works well.
