    I had a discussion with someone about this who had some documents with Mack that had conflicting numbers.  There were 14 CF719’s built with the twin turbo 864’s made. I have number 12 and the other guy has number 9.  His documents show that for the fire service it was boosted to 350hp.  I bet there are more than 10 running examples left since I know of third surviving CF and Tom has one in his R719. As for non-turbo, my F715 is on it’s third or forth. The first blew up on the first trip. It went right back to Mack to be replaced. Mike. 

    Mike, that would have been ENDTF @350hp and most likely the F is for firetruck. Then there was an ENDTI @255hp which is also what the standard naturally aspirated 864 was rated at. Also an ENDT864A at a whopping 355hp. It appears the standard EMDT864 was @325hp.

    did they have the twin turbo V8 in '63? I thought it came later,'66 or so.. Maybe this was a test truck for the engine??

    The papers I have on the history of the Mack V8 shows the ENDT864 (note there is no double T?) was used from 1965 thru 1972 with 4 different versions of the ENDT for a total of 661 built. I assume they were all twin Turbo'd. Surprisingly they built over 7600 of the naturally aspirated 864's and they were offered along side the 865 and 866's for 3 plus years. I sent off a request to the museum to verify if they would have installed a few earlier than 1965 as you would assume a few were out there for testing. The late Bob Brown told me that when he was the northwest Mack service manager they shipped a few up to Alaska for trial runs and he thought it was an awful idea as they were constantly broke down as they worked out the bugs with them. It seems that was in the very early 60's in F models.

    Over the model run there was some variation in some specs, but this is a basic look.

    B73 -  Cummins NH 220 and NH 250 HP 

    B733 - Cummins NT 250-280 HP  turbo motors

    B75 - Mack END 673 170-180 HP, also END 711 after 1962

    B753 - Mack ENDT673 205-210 HP turbo motor

    B755 - Mack END 864 250 HP V8 motor

    B77 - Supercharged Cummins NHRS

    B773 - Cummins 335 HP turbo motor

    what about the B-7553........or an 864 twin turbo?

    220, you're blowing my mind! Two buddies of mine went to school with Jimmy Ali who hauled precast concrete "slab" for his dad D.Ali, with a conventional Brockway out of Bridgeville Pa!.Remember the old stone tavern in the west end, well one of those two was killed when he ran into it one night, they were twin brothers. Bruce and Craig. Ed W Texter ran green B models but some may have been red! Some were gas burners.His terminal was on the north side. Do you work for mack on Beaver Ave? Was the only Mack dealer in Pittsburgh when I lived there! The first big truck I rode in was a B and P Brockway! We hauled a load of steel sheets to Chicago. Was a 220 Cummins with an Eaton 3 speed "bogie" remember them? The driver also drove for Texter! I remember Silhol lumber weren't they on the end of Painters run rd by 50? I was in 249 for several years, drove for A T I out of the railhead  at Rook Station also New Car Carriers out of the same location when they bought AT I! Lake Shore and B and P were both based on Rt 51 near each other. I also hauled steel for JV McNicolas out of their West Mifflin terminal on Rt 51 by Eatn Park! We loaded a lot out of Homestead Works, I'll bet you are familiar with where Mifflin Road dead ended down in Hays and the drivers used to take the turn too fast and drop their coils in the used car lot there! The owner used to put his oldest cars in the front so he would get more money for them than they were worth! Lol! That H model your dad owned was set up to haul some weight! The single axle with a three on the trailer was fairly common before deregulation! There used to be a guy on rte 51 on the Ohio.line had a single axle Chevy gas job with 3 9s on the trailer, obviously ran Ohio which was an axle state,hauled the big coils! Didn't Schaefer have the slag contract out of Homestead Works? I recall his Autocar dump trucks in an out of there a lot! Lot of memories huh?

    Wish there were more pictures of the PA Steel haulers with the 3 axle 32Ft trailers and a big coil. See very few??

    If you want to enjoy that Mack V8 for many more years, then turn it back down to stock spec. That's adequate power. Otherwise you're going to be needing parts that are either NLA or cost a fortune.

    I am learning that lesson right now as I rebuild 2 E-9's!

    I got to meet Stormy, after Dan Thomas introduced me to her while we were chatting one morning.   Dan told her to take a look at my truck.  She came down and took pics and wrote down my life story.  I wasn't holding my breath for any print, but was curious if I'd make one of the little pics.  I didn't.  Oh well.  It was a good time, even with the rain each day.  For driving in the rain and doing a down/dirty wash off the old bucket looks pretty good?


    I had to laugh after I registered, they misprinted my trailer name.  It's a "Haulmark", not Haulwork.   Not like it makes any difference, but had to chuckle.

    Damn it Larry we gave it our best! It was fun seeing you whisked away in the golf cart...........maybe it was more than your truck she was hoping to write about?

    Joe Mustangs old H.  1693 powered.  Dan said Joe just turned 102 and still gets around.

    Just met Stormy from ATHS.  She took pics of truck and my life story.  Time will tell if I make print??

    You need to hire me as your PR person!!! She whisked you away so fast .........it must have been that smile of yours? Never did see you..............or her after that???

  8. There is not much difference in the KW and Pete anymore. most all of the frame and other components are Paccar branded. They share the engine as well along with cabs. I understand that the intent is to stop the production of each brands individual cabs soon.

    A Volvo and a Mack are truly very different trucks considering cabs and some Mack exclusive components. More so than the Paccar product.
