  1. will thicker oil iso 68 to iso 100 be more likely to pump and not leak if the pump is a little worn? being that it is for a show truck, I am not looking for any exceptional performance, just for the body to raise without a load on it...
  2. a couple questions as I am rigging up the same pump on my truck now. What is the thread type on the pump called that you adapted to npt? did you have the pump rebuilt and if so where did you find parts? and finally what oil did you settle on
  3. the 13 speed can only be split on the high side. 18 can be shifted in either. That being said, I only split on the high
  4. if i have a heavy load, i leave it in low on the low side, high if light or empty.
  5. I concur with Paul, There were no DM's and DF's from the 30's and those trucks are in fact from the original B_ series.
  6. It was common up until 2006 on the cv713 granites with 58 rears. I don’t think I have ever seen them on the newer ctp and gu granites except in coal country.
  7. Same radiator core, different top tank.... I haven't gotten a good answer as to why. B-815 and B-87 actually have bigger radiators.
  8. Wow. I wonder what model that truck is.... it looks like a FW front with a chain drive tandem. I have never heard of an fwsw. The truck looks to small to be an Fcsw. It can’t be an fksw with an L cab because those were worm driven.
  9. Your Transmission is fine..... you need to switch to neutral to drop down half a gear or it will grind. Also only shift up under load and it will click in when you let off.
  10. How are you splitting? I flip the switch while my foot is on the gas, then let off and it shifts. If I shift while not under load, it will do what you describe.
  11. that aint 12r24.5, thats 12.00r24. Big boy rubber!!!
  12. I believe the granite (cv713) made until nov. 07 is the same chassis as an rd. The switch from cv to ct and ctp brought the change to a Volvo frame.
  13. That truck was one of the prototypes to the ac. Circa 1915ish. Taken outside the Mack building in Long Island by the looks of it
  14. An fksw is not a chain drive. On tandem chain drives of the time they were either powered by one chain, a separate chain going to from front to rear axle, two separate jackshafts and chains, or a dead axle with no power to it.
  15. its rough... Needs frame, bad paint job over everything to dress it up.
  16. This was in the Wall Street Journal yesterday. With the 8.2% ownership they get just over 14% voting rights. This for people who don't realize it is a huge voting share. Geely will have a big say in Volvo and Mack moving forward.
  17. $2500 seems fair to me. He is close with his 14 hrs. In Massachusetts, figure $110/hr so $1540.00 plus parts which will probably be a little for the then clutch for then for an international 4900, because a 427 is putting out more torque then a dt466. That puts you at $2500.
  18. I would suggest to reach out to Gary Mahan. He should be able to help you with everything you may need from parts to reproduction plaques. Try his posted email account of info@themahancollection.org first, and if that doesn't work, I will hook you up with his personal contact info. I just don't want to post it publicly.
  19. It would certainly work ok. It depends on how detailed you get on your restoration if you want to bother getting a reproduction of the original one or not.
  20. Just curious, What would make you think that? I was under the impression that AC-6 had 13 louvers in the hood instead of 10 on a regular AC.
