    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.
  13. 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
  14. Lol i'm to old school and to old to spend 150k and i like the smoke.New is nice but my hands are dirty most of the time.
  15. Don't think its turned up puff limiter was unhooked when i bought it hooked it up but not sure if its working yes it dos smoke when you step on it it is 30 years old with 1.3 kms. truck is all origanal pretty mitty truck
  16. on my 87 mack 350 4v it blows black soot when i first start it and if i rev it up it blows out more just wondering what causes this.
  17. 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
  18. It's not that the smoke bothered me but read up on oil could get deluted.The guy i bought the truck from owed it for the last 15 years and was just used to pull his equipment around not very many miles and regular oil changes was my neighbour.I was possibly looking at doing some highway hauling as of now i just haul my equipment locally , i average 7thou. miles a year.
  19. It is 350 E6 4 valve has 6100 hrs.
  20. Should of stated it has thirteen speed road ranger i was shifting at 1700 rpm. is that to low.
