  1. You're doing a great job, truck looks excellent. Would you be willing to share the part numbers for the cab jack repair parts? My H 63 jack is bad, and I haven't been able to identify it. You might have noticed in the Mack owners manual that it states that the cab should be supported by something other than the hydraulic system when working under it. I usually stick a 4x4 underneath for that purpose. It fits nicely into a small slightly dented area under the cab, where I guess others before me did the same thing. It would be a shame to scratch up your nice new paint that way, but maybe you could come up with a better idea.
  2. Thanks for taking us along on your trip Vlad. Enjoyed you pictures and story. Nice truck. Cruiseliners are not seen too often in my area of Pennsylvania. Yours looks to have a very nice floor. hopefully the rest of the cab is good and solid. I especially like the picture of the Pobeda. I have a Polish version, the Warszawa. Both are very rare in the USA. Steve
  3. The Endless Mountains Antique Truck Show and Flea Market scheduled for Sept. 5th, 2020 has been cancelled . This would have been our 30th annual show at the Harford Fairgrounds in Harford PA. We appreciate all of the support you have given us in the past. The Northeastern PA Chapter , ATCA hopes that you can join us on labor Day Sunday 2021. Steve
  4. I like the International with the backhoe . That must have been a fairly popular idea in the fifties, I have a similar setup on a Dodge chassis.
  5. You did a great job, looks very sharp. Did you have any issues mating the Cummins to the transmission? Is it a Mack built transmission? What did you use for a clutch? Thanks, Steve
  6. The green and black truck in the picture belongs fo a friend of mine. It is an LJ. He has had it for many years. The hard nose radiator may not be original, but it was on there when he got it. The truck has an early Cummins with a quadruplex. It was built as a single axle with a big 29,000 lb rear. Later the frame was stretched and a dead axle was added. Currently the truck has a newer set of Mack rears on a camleback suspension. The LJ doesn't get driven too much, another friend usually tows it to shows. The H model was made using the L sleeper cab. They are basically the same, but the windshield height is different.
  7. Here is the picture of Dave's B model at the Northeastern PA Chapter ATCA Endless Mountains Antique Truck Show, Harford PA Fairgrounds.
  8. I have a Mack H61T Parts List, #2185, Dated May, 1953. It lists engine parts for the END673, and the Cummins NHB 600, 743 cid, 200 HP.
  9. There will be a two part story on the Australian Mack R800RSX trucks beginning in the January /February issue of Double Clutch magazine. Part two will cover the restoration of Tony Champion's "Iron Horse" seen above. Steve
  10. The sleeper in My H63 is 24" wide. There were non sleeper H models, I have seen them in H-69 and H-81. There probably were others as well.
  11. The bushings are available new from PAI. They are the same as the originals.
