  1. Please send a pic of the hood - see if it’s in better shape than mine. 




  2. never mind. Found it. The screw up by the throttle plate.
  3. Its hard to hind a solid set of fenders, but the earlier fenders are fairly straightforward to recreate. The domed fenders can be made to, but naturally it is more complex. If you couldn't source them locally, Melnick metal works in Ct. could replicate either as well as a hood from blueprints from the mack museum. I have a hood that would need some body work. If you are interested, I can send you pictures.
  4. Is that the t screw on the bottom of the carb bowl that sticks out at an angle?
  5. seems to be running well now, but it is idling substantially higher then before the magneto rebuild. Could his be related to the timing?
  6. also my magneto is a bosch zr4 with an impulse if that matters
  7. 2 questions if you could, Where is the upper air duct hand hole? and how do I unclamp the mag drive?
  8. 1971, 22k ft 80k rears, winch, 14.00r24 rubber. Awesome looking ramp up to the fifth wheel. Just an awesome truck
  9. Brian is a good guy with a passion for the same thing that all of us have. He has put his money where his mouth is an what is shown on the internet is the tip of the iceberg as to what he has. He just last week bought a dm800 that is far cooler then the one listed for sale.....
  10. does anyone have the part numbers for the driver side pipe and the passenger side(Y) pipe for the superliners (5 inch)?
  11. Its very hard to put a value on things that rarely trade hands... I think the truck that you are thinking of that sold was the Wellington Fjs that Pat bought a few years ago. An fj is more sought after then a fg and that particular truck had a history to go with it and that’s worth something to. If this is an appraisal for insurance, you are going to have to back up your appraisal with evidence to get an agreed value. The cost of restoration is irrelevant to the insurance companies. If you spend a million dollars restoring a pinto , it still isn’t worth anything. If you tell them it’s worth 300k I think they will have time with that on an agreed value policy. That being said, if your just looking for a value, and it is a 100% correct truck, the truck could be worth into the 200k neighborhood to the right buyer......
  12. I don't know if its "the right way", but when I split down, I slide it to neutral, split down, double clutch it back into gear. It is way smoother. A lot of times, you can just downshift by whole gears.
