  1. I am looking for a good strap for a square alumium 74' R model fuel tank the tank strap is 45" long to the top of the T-bolts and 1-3/4" wide, also Im looking for the rubber webbing to go around both fuel tank straps. Any one have one or know where I could find these items? Thanks
  2. I have a '74 R model mack and am looking for 1 good shape fuel tank strap and 2 new rubber strips to go under the fuel tank straps. The front steel strap is 45" long to the t bolt head / plus the threads, and is 1 3/4" wide and is for a square alumium mack fuel tank.
  3. I have a '74 mack R model with a ENDTB675 engine, the raditor after a small accident hit the crank shaft counter weight and bent it about a 1/4" and it apears to be crooked and wobbles though it is still good and tight when the engine is running, the pulleys behind the counter weight look fine and still running true. My question is can I have it rebent straight or could I replace it with another counterweight off a used ENDTB675 engine without any problems or will I have to have the whole shaft and weight re-balanced? Anyone know where I could buy one real cheap? Contact me at - wolfwalker223@aol.com

  6. I am use to the old mack slack adjusters with the hex head for adjustment, but the 1975 R model I just got does not have any thing there but a little stub that you cant get a wrench on it. How do you adjust the slack adjusters on this model truck? She's alittle hard to stop with a load and I can't seem to figure out how to adjust them.

  9. Rob, if i put the wider spacer on then my wedges that hold the wheel on wont bottom out on the stops, will this hurt the mounting or as long as they are tight they nessesarly dont need to bottom out when you tighten them up? I will have to measure the rims, if they seem different than I will have to switch out the tires to the original rims that came off the truck and try that ,but what a hassle that will be changing out 8 tires and wheels which I was trying to avoid. Thanks for your help and advice
  10. Hi, was wondering if any one had any advice on switching out Rear tires from a 66 U model mack with 6 lugs to a 75 R model that has 5 lug axle. The tires are 10.00 x20's and I did have to switch out the seprator rings also to get the wheel clamps and nuts to tighten up. But the problem is on one side the clearence between the tire and leaf spring is only about 3/4 of an inch where as the other side is more like 1 1/2 of an inch clearance from the leaf springs .Also with the truck loaded the tires seem to rub each other when the truck hits a dip or hole in the road, and the truck vibrates and is hard to hold in the road since the wheels where switched out. I want to switch them out because the tires are mud grip and I need the extra traction here in the mountains of Virginia and was hoping I wouldn't need to change out the tires and have to remove the tires from the rims and switch out the rims in order to change out these tires and rims. So any one who has some advice please email me at, Wolfwalker2223@aol.com ,or respond to this page. Thank you
