  1. dont have one at the moment to swap in but its something i thought of doing yet i dont think that will do anything really since it seems like the motor itself is raising in sound as well when the rpms start to jump around. its done it for years.
  2. my CL tach does some funky shit sometimes too. like id me at a set MPH on the highway and the RPM will start to jump around but it does sound like the motor is raising its rpm speed as well. but its does it fast. not sure what it is. doesnt anyways do it. never could understand or come to idea what would do it.
  3. in the market for heavy spec CL/CV dump trucks. dual or tri axle. 20k fronts/46k rears. double frame. must have- full gauge package. nothing bigger then a 16ft body/bed (give or take a few inches) no junk. the more chrome the better (lol). o/o spec is a plus (dual exhaust/alum tanks/rims/full length steps) as for CV im looking for the older ones. something like a 2002. CV must have dual exhaust (optional on a CL). NO AIR RIDE SUSPENSION!!!!!! i repeat no air suspension!!!!! PS- yes im very picky about my trucks if your wondering which would explain the reasons i have listed above lol post up pictures and info of what you are selling. thanks!
  4. years ago all you would see are macks in my town. ones in a blue moon you would see a pete or KW but they be on-highway dumps. alot of rock work. then everything started to changed slowly when the dealers all changed over and everything went to shit. now 80% of trucks you see here are KW, very few macks. most are newer ones that are always broken down. only maybe a hand full of older gray motor macks left which include mines and few others left hanging on.
  5. that is true, hes had mack for 12 years if i recall. just not easy getting parts for them anymore. he doesnt want to deal with the stupid dealers here bc they are all no nothing no bodies which i can understand bc i have had the same problems. he just wants something diff. something more user friendly for parts. also macks here drivers dont take care of them. they see them as throw-away trucks and hes wanting to get something a driver will like and take care of since hes heading more in that direction. small dump trunk company. 2 trucks max. parts you can fine all over online or at the truck junk yards. nothing for macks here other then the dealer and they fuck up every single time sadly. i have thought about switching to at times but havent. if i had newer macks yes but hard to give up my gray motor CL's lol
  6. I had one of those. Was very custom. $160k truck bought it brand new. Sold it like 10 or 11 years ago. Great truck. Sadly the older ones are hard to find and ones that are not completely fucked! Plus he wants to get away from mack.
  7. yea thats what i told him. a c12 at the least would be alot better with a few upgrades. sucks since the truck is setup well but the motor and trans not so much which not sure why. rather odd.
  8. have a family member looking at getting a different truck then what i know mostly about (macks) so thought id ask here, maybe someone knows better. its a 2004 pete 357 dump truck. C10 335hp. Allison 6spd and was told it was a 4650p trans? not sure of that one. dual straight pips. 46 rears with 529 gears. think it has 22.5 tires. he is worried that the motor wont have any balls in it for the dump truck work we do. its a tri axle dump. we haul 70k here but sometimes more. alot of suger sand and mud. no hills but alot of pits are deep and pulling out of them are a bitch sometimes. we also build tall pads. we do 50/50 (on-highway/off-highway). not sure if this motor can be turned out with computer tuning or bigger turbo and injectors. he would like at least 425 to 450hp and about 1500-1700tq. basically something like what a E7-427 would match. any help would be great!
  9. Was told 460 with a 8LL trans. Haven't seen the truck yet. Also 20k front and factory dump truck with double frame.
  10. Can someone run a vin number for me and post the specs of the truck?
  11. No. Not yet. Going to this weekend when I have free time. Is there a fuse just for dash lights?
  12. also if someone know which wires power the lights for all that i dont mind jumping it and putting it on its on switch.
  13. on my 2000 CL713 when i turn on the lights at night none of my gauges light up or switches on the center dash part light up. all gauges and switches work tho. anyone know the reason for this or what it could be?
  14. I sent you an pm about your pictures. Sorry it took me awhile. Been working none stop. Didnt have any hoilday off season this year.
  15. I have bought from watts before. And it has nothing to do with the dealer being bothered. They are changing over. Getting rid of people. It's happening in alot of places. Just a matter of time is all. This was never a problem up until 5 years ago when Volvo came in hard and changed everything and let people go.
  16. all the could do which tool them a week to do after bullshit back and forth is give me those numbers i posted in my first post. thats all the info they have in there system. my VIN does nothing for them anymore it seems like and just within the last month they said they got new computers and are deleteing alot of mack only stuff (like older macks like mine) out of it. like i said. having them find into on a exhuast part or even a water pump is a nightmare
  17. i wish that was the case for me but sadly it isnt. this is nothing new tho. this has been going on for the last 5 or so years. its gone down hill and it have heard it for many and even some people on here. im sure it will catch up to everyone at some point. i didnt think it would happen to me either until they let go of all the old timers there that i seen for almost 20 years buying from there. one time i went there everything was good and the next time i went all new people and no one knew jack shit unless its a volvo part. cant even tell you how many times they gave me parts for my CL and it was a for a volvo. they dont even know that doesnt belong on my truck. thankfully my truck came from the factory with dual exhaust bc trying to get parts now to make it as such would be a nightmare. i had to replace the pipe right off the turbo. it took them a month to fine one and when they did it was for a volvo. i had to go crazy to get the dam thing. they all looked at me like i have no idea what im talking about or wanted to act as if my truck doesnt have it. as if my turbo doesnt have an exhaust attached to it lol never mind the ordeal with computer shit or even rearend parts. its a shit show at best.
  18. i havent called anymore else today other then mack and thats what they told me and give me those numbers. was at work all day. i guess i will call Sheppard and see what they can do for me. my only issues is i cant have the truck down. thanks again for all the help guys. really sucks the dealer offers no help for these older trucks anymore for many parts. just getting a simple exhaust part nowadays has turned into a huge ordeal since the dealer has no idea what your talking about or have people working for them that never even seen a CL and there systems dont have part numbers for this old of a truck or no longer making parts. i have both these steering boxes and rebuilt one more axle and replace my exhaust and my truck will be set. i have replaced/rebuilt/upgraded every other part i could other wise from front to back on this truck.
  19. in need of 2 new steering boxes for a 2000 CL713. mack says they dont make anymore. left is - 20QC4328M right is - 20QC378AM does anymore know where i can get them or who makes them or some sort of info??? can anyone cross these numbers with other numbers? these are the mack numbers and they dont seem to come up anywhere.
  20. i just talked with them. no adapters are included.
  21. wish they would write that type of info in the ad. i have looked at a couple diff ones and none say anything. im sure they all fit petes and kw's but macks are always the odd ball when it comes to this type of stuff in the aftermarket world i have learned over the years lol
  22. anyone know if these will fit? https://www.iowa80.com/pd/universal-acheater-slide-control-knobs-3pk/08905/ im not sure if the mack used a standard side or what
  23. i need a new set of HVAC knobs for my 2000 CL. anyone know where to get at set or maybe what aftermarket set will fit? i was told by mack they are no longer made.
