    R795 V8

    I get the functionality in the cities, but that tractor could use about 3 feet of length between the cab and tandem.
  2. Continental spreads it around. They are still buying Mack’s.
  3. I believe you have incorrect information. Joe is correct, your r686 was built with a maxidyne 300. Your r688 likely had a 12speed transmission and your 686 likely has a 7 speed.
  4. Fuel tank does not resemble a B 30. also the front axle is to heavy and the tires look to large.
  5. There was no place for it in their lineup. They put their eggs in the V8 basket for big power. Unfortunately, economies of scale come into play in production and more offerings equate to higher prices all the way through.
  6. it appears to have the dark gray interior that would make it at least an 85, Mack on hood is definitely 80's. older style vertical louvers on radiator would rule out late 80's or 90's unless it was swapped. It is really tough to say for sure because really any of it could have been swapped. my guess is 80's though
  7. my guess is that they are long gone........
  8. i have a couple of the 2 inch ones, They are fairly small. I also have a few of the 4 1/4 bumper pole dogs
  9. the hood ones are around 6 inches bumper poles are about 4 1/4and the mini ones are about about 2
  10. break that down to inches. There are the full size ones on the hood then there are ones that are about 4 inches long then there are ones that are about 2 inches.
  11. To me, the prices seem very reasonable.....
  12. Thanks, I was able to get one from mack....
  13. somebody told be that switching from a zenith updraft carb to a stromburg sf-2 will fix all my problems.
  14. never mind. Found it. The screw up by the throttle plate.
  15. 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.
  16. Is that the t screw on the bottom of the carb bowl that sticks out at an angle?
  17. seems to be running well now, but it is idling substantially higher then before the magneto rebuild. Could his be related to the timing?
  18. also my magneto is a bosch zr4 with an impulse if that matters
  19. 2 questions if you could, Where is the upper air duct hand hole? and how do I unclamp the mag drive?
