  1. Another question

    Thank you for the info.
  2. I'm looking at getting the headliner kit from Watts. The only ones listed are for a b61 and b67 cab. Mine is a b42. Would it still work? Is there a huge difference in the two cabs?
  3. Dusty Barn Find

    Neat old piece of iron. I too think storage in a damp space may not have been too kind to it...... Not knocking it at all. I would still take it though.
  4. Nut

    Thanks again for everyone's help!
  5. Nut

    I installed all new chambers and cut the rods a little longer than the original ones to give me some "wiggle room" in adjustments.
  6. Nut

    On this one the buzzer stops at 60 psi. Then I can release the parking brake. They're a little slow in releasing unless the psi is up a bit more, then they will release just fine. I'm sure it has to do with the fact lower psi makes things a little slow in releasing.
  7. Nut

    Simple enough. Same process as a car, just different adjuster location. Thanks a million! 🖒
  8. Nut

    This is off topic but, speaking of slack adjusters. What is the proper way to adjust all the brakes? At the slack adjusters or the clevis rod? Or both? Having never been a truck mechanic, things are a little different than what I'm used to. 🤔
  9. Nut

    Ain't that the truth!! I broke a puller trying to pull the arm off.
  10. Nut

    I believe the nut is inch and a quarter, the thread pitch is fine thread. Not sure of the exact pitch though. Thanks a lot for your help!
  11. Anyone have a spare nut that holds the pitman arm to the steering box they would like to sell? I can't find one anywhere, it's a super fine thread pitch. Even Fastenal can't get one. It would suck to take the Mack out for it's maiden voyage and not be able to steer clear of oncoming traffic.
  12. DAMMIT!

    I didn't know you had called. I didn't get a message on my answering machine.
  13. DAMMIT!

    Thanks everyone. It's not a problem to fix, just frustrating. Perhaps I should make a sacrifice to the Old Truck Gods.....my neighbor has a Prius. Just sayin'.
  14. This is what happens when you try to do things by yourself. In an attempt to turn the hood over to install the trim and wipe the compound and polish off the bottom of the hood, BOOM. a two inch scratch down to the primer. Good thing I have some blue left over. Note to self and anyone else who is listening, STOP BEING SO INDEPENDENT AND ASK FOR HELP. Rant over.
  15. Getting closer

    Thanks. It's FAR from perfect. A real Mack expert could find a ton of mistakes but I did it as best as I could. I just enjoy the process of restoration.
