  1. So I’m on the tail end of this build and need to set my front toe (it’s clearly toe’d out). I was thinking of going with 1/8th inch toe in which is typical for smaller, dropped I beam style front axles. Does anyone know if the factory Mack setting is different or doesn’t anyone have another recommendation?
  2. Vacuum boosted hydraulic. I converted it to a dual master.
  3. I was trying to keep it as “period correct” as possible as far as the engine swap went. A lot of the original pieces either got rebuilt and reused, cleaned or repurposed. I tried to stay away from modern conveniences like plastic wire loom, zip ties, aluminum parts and really anything that didn’t fit the time period.
  4. I did not! I’ve never even heard of that. I know where it was stations all it’s life and it’s timeline history but that’s about it. There was a fireman that was supposed to get me a bunch of pics and papers but I never got it before he retired.
  5. I would love to learn more about this truck. I never even noticed the IH wheel until I found out that the front brake lines were for an IH Tractor. I’m beginning to think this thing was put together with all sorts of different parts in ‘45.
  6. I know some of y’all think it’s sacrilegious to do what I did but I love it. Took her around the block for the first time the other day. Wiring is 100% done and there are only a couple minor things left to take care of. Hope to have her at her first show in about a month.
  7. That looks the same as my ‘45 Type 45. On one than more occasion I have replicated those spring clips that hold the glass in by bending coat hangers.
  8. Here is the master cylinder I used. It has the same bore and stroke of the original single chamber.
  9. Thanks. Way safer than the rats nest of exposed wire and wire nuts that was on it when I got it.
  10. Thanks. I did have to make the adapter plate but I did it just with a plasma cutter and basic power tools. I believe the master cylinder is off a ‘70’s or ‘80’s motorhome. It had the same bore size and stroke of the original single chamber. I’ll have to get the p/n when I get to work. The engine is a 5.3 out of a ‘05 Tahoe with a FiTech efi system.
