  1. I have heard that $500,000 number. The wellington truck that brought $310,000 is a nice piece, but there are at least a dozen fj's kicking around. There are 3 fksw's, all of which are in the hands of serious collectors and will probably not come available any time soon. I guess the only real way to put a value on one would be to see what guys like Pat and Lou would pay to have one.
  2. Was that the firehouse themed restaurant in Worcester? When I was a little kid I loved going there to see the AC.
  3. looks to be a converted fire truck to me. Its got double plugs, spot light and a siren. Not standard issue for delivering tires......
  4. They sit up a lot higher. They are on heavier axles and most of the time they are on larger tires (11.00r24 or 12.00r24)
  5. must be a converted fire engine!
  6. I can't speak to the lean, but you will love that engine/trans combination. I have an rd688sx set up the same and it really is terrific.
  7. To me, ELC just means Extended Life Coolant. Thats what cat calls their red coolant anyway.
  8. Well they aren't as old as you think, as they have the later radiator design. The second one looks to have the optional larger ac-6 radiator. If you don't have the Id plate by the passengers feet in the cab the serial number should be located by the front right tire stamped into the frame. Write the Mack museum with those numbers and they will provide you with all the info on the trucks such as specs, year, and who it was first sold to. Also, you should get to know Gary Mahan in nj as he is a wealth of knowledge and parts for early Mack chain drives. Good luck!!
  9. a superliner nose is longer then a ch though. I believe a rw713 and cl713 has the same or similar frame, its just that a superliner axle is forward and a cl is axle back. I would say that can be done.
  10. A b95 is a fire truck and the rule of even gas odd diesel doesn't apply to fire trucks...... The number after b simply refers to the output of the pump.
  11. I wouldn't risk it. That $40 could be awful expensive if it ends up costing you a transmission.
  12. Just spent an hour with Bruce, Mikes son, looking at the trucks. Quite a collection and very fairly priced. The orange McNamara mixer is a very solid truck with very little rot on the cab.
  13. Only issue I see with it is adjusting the gvw to 70,000 to 73,000 on 3 axles.
  14. exactly what it sounds like. There were regulations that the feds actually loosened up on. One example would be overall length of the truck. It used to be that in order to have a 53' box and a sleeper, you needed a cabover to stay under the length limit. Now you see 53' trailers being pulled by long nose, smooth riding petes with a stretch frame and a small house for a sleeper. Hence the death of the over the road cabover......
  15. The b cab may be smaller but it has a way more modern feel to it then the L cab. The rounded look of the B is a statement of the 50's and Americas obsession with aerodynamics and space travel. Rounded cab makes for less room......
  16. The collection has been pretty much dissolved. The owner, Dennis Yaworski ran into some legal trouble with his business and the rarest of the trucks were sold off to settle fines and legal fees. The rarest of the collection is now with Gary Mahan and Chris Berry in their private collections now I believe
  17. Donovan equipment will put new rails from behind the cab for $11 grand. $14 if the suspension need to be rebuilt
  18. I wasn't thinking 99k in mass w/o a over weight permit 130k with one on 5 axles.
  19. typical rate in my neck of the woods is $105 for a trailer. We can haul 99k on 5 axles with an overweight permit and trailer length doesn't matter. Trucking is about the only thing Massachusetts is lax on
  20. The superliner II came out mid year 1985
  21. 12r24.5 tubeless tires are equivalent to 12.00r22 tube tires. 12.00r24 tube type tires would be equivalent to 12r26.5 tires if they were made, but unfortunately they are not....
