    87 Mack

    30 years old still runs nice everything works tight truck painted once just to cover company colors looked a lot of years for one been in my home town for bout 20 years i think.
  11. My 87 has a tick when its driven and warmed up. Not a constant tick, more of a hit and miss tick. Doesn't do it when it's cold. Thought it was my air conditioner but it's not. that oil is good steped on the clutch still there. Oil pressure is good. Could it be an injector going bad? Thinking if it was a valve, it would be a constant tick. Any ideas? Thanks

    Throttle shaft

    On my 86 Mack, the throttle shaft moves in and out about 1/16 of an inch [governor lever]. Is there supposed to be spacer in there? Think this is part of engine flutter but also the hole is worn were the throttle lever attaches to the pump lever. Ordered a new one. Thanks
