Well found out today that it's a E7 427 in the truck ..got in touch with the guy I got it from..1999 model..so what's the thoughts on this engine guys .looks like new cam and lifters 1 lifter is beat up and the lobe on the cam matches..push rods are good to go rollers on eup are good to go 1 cylinder has a few scratches that I'm not comfortable with also going to put new cam bearings in..

  3. I had 1 jump out of my e7 2 times come to find out the clip that holds the roller on the bottom was bent after 1400.00 to fix the first time I took it apart the 2nd and the roller fell off in my hand bent the sides in just a little no more problem in over a  year..

    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?

    I was told 460 but I'm not sure just picked it up last week..where are mack serial number on the block

    You used to be able to buy a kit fuel lines ar not nessary on  older engines we do Rollers only the two on the offending cylinder and the eup  roller if nessary you also need magnets to hold the lifters up!you need to determine if our have ceramic or steel rollers on the lifters!

    So just the 2 on the offending cylinder lifters and eup rollers .I was thinking of getting all new lifters but that would save some cash ..plan to carry it to the shop Monday hopefully not a long line ahead of me..will report back on everything we find and replace..thank you all for the help

  8. Well picked up another rd last week drove it home 250 miles no problem at all ..engine has a slight tick so carried to the shop to get looked over rocker has play in it.. as my idea of a cost for a repair such as this..don't need a lot of down time with the truck middle of the season..

    What parts are involved 

    Cam lifters

    New cam bearing

    Thanks for any help
