  1. There's a possibility-I say possibility that it will have a new home in New Hampshire in a few weeks. Nothing set in stone.
  2. I use to but I don't have the time anymore, I'm about to retire, I'm tired and just want to sit down. Maybe latter on down the road. But thanks for asking.
  3. Your right-but I never started this thinking there would be any profit, As far as my time well I guess I could have wasted it watching football. I did the work for the challenge only expecting to recover cost. If I put a price on it for my time it would be so high people would just laugh, If a person wants to sell something it has to be realistic or it will never sell.
  4. Thanks for asking-Yes go ahead and use it, at least it's getting used for something.
  5. Thank you folks, but it's not perfect it has some flaws. Because I have flaws and definitely not perfect.
  6. No I did not build it for anyone other than me. It's for sale because I need to move on in life, it was a challenge I took on myself and it's finished.

  8. Using the company tow truck headed to Pasco Wa today for a truck show tomorrow and to my surprise I see blue light in the mirror. WSP-just wanted some photos of my Mack it turned out. Read where it says Shipping and Lading. WSP Ticket 06-18-21.pdf
  9. With the rear drop manifolds on 220's the standard rear structure/bell housing used was the one Matt73 has in his photo of his 220 above that's painted yellow. With rear drop manifolds Cummins used that bell to lower the starter on the right side. At least that's what I have always seen in a factory built truck with a 220.
  10. One thing that hasn't been addressed-Eaton for many years used parts forged in the UK and Canada as well as the U.S.. But like so many companies they moved into gears, bearing and other related parts stamped else where. I spent years rebuilding Eaton gear boxes, the longevity on gear life isn't what it was 20 years ago. But with that said if you are rebuilding lets say a RTLO18913A the replacement parts and numbers are for a RTLO16913A. So basically you end up with a half and half transmission on torque rating. The tempering/hard surface process for the 18913a gears is more expensive and Eaton just replaces with 16913A parts. Sad but true.

  12. Nice job, Those two motors are the same as the single unit I used. Good motors And the shaft length is the same too. https://www.americanclassic.com/1947-53-Wiper-Motor-Electric-Conversion-12-volt/productinfo/67-064/?utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Bing Shopping&utm_term=4579259771914807&utm_content=Ad group %231
  13. Great job. I used a EZ harness for a early 70's chev pickup, but only used about 3/4 of it. The rest I made up, it was 160 bucks IIRC. Wiper motor I used was for a 53 chevy pickup that was a conversion from vacuum to electric. Then modified the mack linkage, two speed with park.
  14. Socialism is the dirty word of the day yet the U.S. has had it for years and years, even the internet your on right now was created by the Gov. This is a old piece 2014 about the worst states for socialistic behavior, there's uh quite a few red states listed and somehow I doubt the statistic changed, probably even more now. https://www.thestreet.com/investing/stocks/10-most-socialist-states-in-america-13275683
  15. The forum I frequent the most. https://www.heavyequipmentforums.com/threads/vintage-macks.21193/
  16. Problem--Both sides are pointing the finger at each other, until that subsides and both sides start making concessions nothing will get done. A one party system will not work, not before, not now, not ever. Both sides have good ideas.
  17. The country was 19.5 Trillion in debt when took office in his four tears it climbed to 27 Trillion-fact. The wall he told everyone Mexico would pay for-he used defense department money to build it. John Kasich is the one who should have been elected he wasn't perfect but he could write a budget that would worked. Any business man who has a litany of bankruptcy's is not much of a businessman.
  18. You haven't missed much then because there was nothing to miss.
  19. This page is all too funny everything said above about Dems and brainwashing-what the hell do the T supporters think has been said about them the last four years. A crazy elitist takes a ride down a escalator to announce he's running for president no one pays much attention, then he starts telling folks what they want to hear and Voila he has a sudden bunch of jim jones followers. Brainwashing? I seriously doubt that 80% of people who voted for him even investigated him before voting.
  20. Difference between a new wave republican and a jet engine? The jet engine stops whining when it gets to Hawaii.
  21. Front brakes were not federally mandated till July of 1979 on all trucks. But most all were installing them as standard equipment by 1976.
  22. 1980 Freightliner C.O.E. . I could have them put in a lathe and turn the drums off of them. instead of pressing the studs out to remove the drums.
