  1. Internal parts can most likely be wire brushed or soda blasted to clean them up. Unless they were subjected to the elements outside or standing water inside I bet it would just be a little surface rust.
  2. I am guessing that it's because the owner of the truck added the vertical grill trim that kind of makes it look like a ford
  3. I saw the truck there. Lots like a nice solid project
  4. And further more, he reaches out to me periodically to alert me to trucks I may be interested in.
  5. I think that as stated above, you are mistaking if you consider his demeanor arrogant. We are speaking of a man who allows people into his private shrine, climbs over piles of unobtainable parts to find us fellow collectors parts that we would otherwise be screwed without. Keep in mind he is in his seventies and is worth hundreds of millions of dollars. He isn't doing this for money, he is doing it to genuinely help people. After you get what you came for, he gives you a tour of the most extensive collection of Mack trucks in the world, and usually brings you down to Basking Ridge center to take you out to lunch. He has taken the time not only to show me his collection, but also to see his other business ventures. To me, this isn't arrogance, it is enlightenment.
  6. I can vouch for you on the FH, he didn't seem to want my money.....
  7. I believe Gary Mahan has the only FC, so one. Chris Berry has everything but...
  8. I think thats easier said then done. FG, FN are tricky. FK is almost impossible, FKSW is impossible, FC is impossible, And I hear FCSW can be done.
  9. Its just a guess, but I think that truck is the FJ That Chris Berry has had Matt Pfahl working on since about September to get into working order. If I am right, that means its a 180hp cummins and my guess would be around $125,000 to $150,000 on the value. Maybe more.
  10. compared to what the truck is worth, It is pretty insignificant.
  11. Picking up a little compost in lexington I see.... I need to have a little talk with Marc Valenti on his choice of equipment.
  12. owned by the Pelletier's from the show "American Loggers" that ran on Discovery Channel
  13. That's cool, looks like it has small tires on it for an sx
  14. problem with the ceiling mounted units is if you bring in a truck or piece of equipment that has been out in the cold and you try to work under it, it blocks the ceiling unit. you end up under the truck that is radiating cold down on you while you work. Floor heat heats primary the first 6-8 feet and thats where I work. As for cost, its a lot more. In the 6k sq. ft building I am putting up it was like 8,500 for ceiling tubes or 39,000 for in the floor heat. I went in floor because I believe it is that much better.
  15. I dug mine today too Jack. We are soil sampling and compaction testing tomorrow, layout Tuesday, Footings Weds-Thursday and hopefully walls on Friday or next Monday.
  16. I saw a b-30 or B-42 (can't quite remember which) that had a Chrysler in it and the owner claimed it to be original. Any truth to that?
  17. really? I was under the impression they were made by mack and they also sourced engines from chrysler.
  18. A Mack gas is made by Mack not continental. I wonder if the truck has or had at some point a 1 speed axle and that is what the air shifter on the stick is related to?
  19. no connection http://newjersey.craigslist.org/clt/5537418641.html
  20. I just thought that the older heat/ ac unit had a couple rotary switches, not a rocker switch. maybe it is the wrong switch.
