  1. I think She'd be Barely Legal.. Otherdog.. Those old 300's were a good Motor. Dad had one in a F700. It got a bit Tired so he put a 351 in It. . All he gained was the V8 Burble.. Didn't seem to Go all that much Harder...
  2. All good mate. . Its' very hard to pick upon Peoples Body language reading the written word on a Screen..!!
  3. My Monies on It being a BITZA built by a Retired Truck Driver... Most likely a Mack Chassis & running Gear with the Camper Body Grafted onto It.. But just a W.A.G. on My part..
  4. You Should be able to make a Bendix To Flo 750 Compressor Fit I would Think..
  5. I beg to Differ. The Country I've spent the last 56 (plus) Years growing up In, & My Family has many generations of Living here .Bears No resemblance to the Nazi Germany i learnt about at School & still Hear & read about.. None... Media Organizations the World Over are absolute Experts at Cherry picking, & Selective editing things to suit Any Narrative they Want..!! Don't believe everything the Press Tells You.....
  6. https://www.paiindustries.com/ EDIT: Here in Australia Gleemans used to be the Australian distributor for P.A.I. Parts.. But there've been taken over bought & Dumbed down. Not Too sure who the Aussie distributor is Now..
  7. I found the Pic on an Australian heavy haul page.. I think It was an Internal site transfer on a Mining Lease. They mentioned that; the Gross Weight was 670 metric Tonnes.. I've NFI on your manhour Question.. Sorry.
  8. Etu, Welcome. if You click on the 3Dots on the top RHS of you Post you will be able to Edit Your Post..
  9. kt_Engineer has the best Theory so far, In my Opinion.
  10. I've Broken Most Things, But Never an Axle..💥 Most Common Way to remove them I know is to; Slide a bit of Polythene or PVC pipe/Tube in over the Broken Bit & get your stick welder with a bit of heavy Wire or Light Rod & stick It to the Broken Bit & pull out.. or a Strong magnet on a Rod or a broom handle & pull It Out through the PVC/ Poly... @Mark T We're Talking about 44,000 LB Mack axles Not Braking.. Not Axles in general..
  11. No the Midliner is Renault. . However they used the Club of 4 Cab which was shared by Volvo Daf, Magirus & Renault.. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Club_of_Four
  12. I've seen a similar thing happen to My Father 35(or so) Yrs ago. But it was picked up within Minutes of It Happening though..!
  13. All Good Redhorse.. If All your Wheel Studs are the same length, & Nuts identical. You Can get it Damn Close just by having the same number of Threads sticking through each of the Nuts..
  14. Too True Paul, I've done It at 2.00am with a Torch in my Mouth (Pre head torch days) & got them to within a couple of Bee's Dicks..
  15. Yep I do... The Tyre Fitter has NFI what He's doing.. Go to the 11.00 mark here & Watch..
  16. Is it the Odometer or the Trip meter that's returning to Zero every Day.?
  17. No more Granite in Australia Paul.. been dropped & replaced by the Anthem..
  18. I'm with You tjc.. As far as I'm Concerned, Its nothing but an Urban Myth.. When hauling machinery/Equipment, I always ask the Customer if they would like the exhaust covered or Not. (purely as Professional courtesy) I can Honestly say that I don't know of a Turbo Failure caused by this..
  19. The whole thing'd be overweight... A bare D7G weighs 44,600lbs add the Scrub Canopy & Blade . You're at 50,000lbs (or more) They'd be Grossing at least 135,000lbs I would Think..
  20. 2 D7G's Melbourne to Brisbane, Bit over a 1,000 Miles.. The Blades are on the Floor between the Tracks..
  21. Vlad is correct Brocky..Mack Australia used the R Model chassis for everything.. Vlad, I own one of those COE Magnums. They came into the country as Glider Kits. Cab, Chassis & Front Axle.& were fitted with the entire Drivetrain Here. It has the euro 335pcd Wheels all round.. The Quantums were a little bit Different. The early Ones came in as Glider Kits, & were quite problematic. the Later ones were CH Chassis fitted with the Quantum Cab, & where a far better Truck by All accounts.. Pretty sure there's a Thread (or 2-3) here about them..
