  1. birthday present

    I ran a hardhat freightliner triaxle with one of those l10 engines it was about 325 or so hp. I was less than impressed. I drove a 3406 325hp and it ran rings around the l10. Years ago I had a 59 autocar with that 262 and a 4by4 and it did ok. It would be nice to keep that 262 in that truck. Nice birthday present.

  5. Gerharts show next week. Who's going?

    Hi,what day is the best to be there? I went on sat. and it was okay but it did drizzle and I think it stopped some from showing up. I couldn't beleave the stuff that was there. I hope to run into some of you.I will have a scruffy camo hat with a fishing button on the front. Dave
  6. I spent some time looking that truck over and it is pretty good. It has the mack walking beam instead of camelback. I just didn't want to spend that much on a truck, at the time I looked he wanted 30,000$

  8. Antique Truck Show Harford PA Sept 3rd

  9. I spent many hours in a Brockway triaxle with the lowly 318 with a 13 speed I thought it did real well, I had a coal box and I would load that truck up with crusher stone dust.
  10. Big Muskie Bucket

    I just remembered I bought a book called giant earth-moving equipment and it covers all the big shovels and the largest straight front shovels if you like this sort of thing you will find the book fascinating.
  11. Big Muskie Bucket

    In hazelton pa. there is a marion shovel it had a 97 yard bucket now it looks like a 15 or 20 yarder on it. pegnotti owned it years ago. down the road is the anthrusite king it pulled a 50 or 60 yard bucket. I have been all through the marion and that is something to see. When I was around them electric shovels I was told to jump from the ground onto the step never touch the ground and metal of machine stray voltage could get you the big ones run on upwards 6,000 and up volts I was told. In hazelton and surrounding towns there were hundreds of draglines that pulled 15 yards or more buckets
  12. b model brake shoe wear plate.

    Tom call jeff or tom at cook brothers in Pittston if you can get them they will help you out. If not get one made out of hot rolled and dip it in casenite it will harden the out side but keep the inside softer so it won't shatter or get a chunk of ar plate you can drill it and it be hard

    You can get a universal one that you have to copy the length from your original one and weld it together with a sleave but I don't think they hold up as good as the original mack part. That is my opinion after 3 macks at work. How bad is that to drive on wet pavement with the two lifts down? I drove a Brockway triaxle and it had 10-24s on the front I liked it better then the 425s on the newer trucks at work.
  14. Kevin all has done this very conversion on 2 0r 3 trucks you want the early r box it is shorter. I think it would be a real sob to get the box in between the block and frame . I wanted power steering to help with my back problems and I didn't want air assist. I got a box off a mack firetruck and made up brackets and mounted it up front. I took a sliding steering shaft from a freightliner and used the one end that fit the box and got a steering wheel and shaft out of a old r model and used the spline end that the wheel fits on because bs are larger and I wanted a smaller wheel. I then made a new steering collum assm. I got a newer style air compressor with the flange for the pump. I mounted a vain pump on it I got off kevin. I had to make an adapter for the dipstick and make a mount for the tank. In the end it works with one finger standing still and I got a sharper turning radius. I own a machine shop/ welding shop so it was something I could do, if i had to bill for all that work a customer would shoot me. Good luck with your project.
