    Trump’s Trade War With China Pierces the Heart of Michigan

    Guess it could be considered "soft ware" or "cheater-in-ter-face" topics, so don't cut yourself short.

    That’s a first, thanks for sharing results.

    2001 mack rd cam shaft problems we think

    I’d fix the engine, it’s a pretty common item. Just a heads up..... Buyer beware It’s the age of “oil sample everything”. If your seller saw metal it may explain the well timed, 250-mile-later, cam blow out after time of sale. It’s hard to imagine him getting it that close before sale, but not unheard of.

    Trump’s Trade War With China Pierces the Heart of Michigan

    Reason I say Germany is the strangle hold they have on the software for the machines we handle. I went from building cheater interface plugs at RadioShack for opening machine parameters to the new Sculi that sends a 5,000 volt discharge to the keyboard if you answer a question wrong.

    Trump’s Trade War With China Pierces the Heart of Michigan

    Can’t imagine he had a straight face when he said that. When I was younger I read a book written in the 80’s describing the differences between Israel’s approach to terrorism and security vs the American approach to terrorism and security. The American author pointed out that we would lose big if we didn’t get in the fight like Israel. Then 9/11 and now we are American Israelites. Who is the country we should be shadowing in terms of protecting intellectual property? Germany is the tightest IMO.

    04 Granite CV713 with a e7-427?

    A little tweaking for the AI 427 and it will run right along side the RD. You will likely need a turbo, Ex manifold, injectors and a software flash. Or, if your really lucky, someone already did all that and your getting a gem. It was popular and easy to modify the EGR out of this engine (2004-2007).

    Mack e7

    Are they bad or might you be misdiagnosing a bigger issue? Where are you getting your parts from?

    Air compressor drive gear

    They make a tool for holding the drive while torquing the nut. Or do what 90% of people do and impact it.

    Impact has a part number. Whether or not you can get the tag requires a phone call. Don’t use my number, it’s off a random 2000.

    July 5th, 2018..........and the game begins! I'm buying bucket cutting edges for the heavy loader fleet. Jason, I received an email from my supplier of these edges. Starting tomorrow, the tariff takes effect which will increase these edges up to a possible 25%. I received this information late Tuesday and didn’t have time to let anyone know. If I place this order today I believe I can beat this timetable they set. Let me know ASAP to avoid problems later. If you have any questions let me know… Thank You

    I’d replace all lifters and followers unless it was a ceramic SetUp. Oil pump. Bearings. Check updates to brake pins, etc. Last I checked PAI will sell a complete camshaft kit and Mack made you itemize. Guys at the dealership we’re giving the blessing to buy the complete kits from PAI. Nice hard working rig, good luck! what’s it power to? HP?
