  1. Sounds good Joey Mack. Might be good to stock up on that stuff. Thanks.
  2. Thanks MackTech. I guess the best thing to do is when I remove the hoses, cut it, and measure the inside diameter to see if its 3/8 or 1/2. Not sure what has been done to this truck before I purchased it, and what mods its been through. I know a lot has been done. Started as a tractor, then stretched and made into a tri-axle dump, air to the rear for pintle hitch trailers. Thanks again.
  3. I am getting ready to replace my front brake chambers on my 1985 Superliner. My question is the rubber hose size. Not sure if mine are 1/2" or 3/8" hose, but are about 18" long. What doesn't make sense to me is, why do they both go through a 3/8 fitting. What is the advantage of 3/8" fitting to 1/2" hose to 3/8" fitting over a 3/8" fitting 3/8" hose 3/8" fitting. No matter what size hose you use, it still narrows down to 3/8" I want to make sure I put the correct ones on. All my drop-down hose are so old, that all the markings and sizes on them are long gone.
  4. Last week one of my hood restraint cables snapped on my 1985 Superliner. From what I found, its part number 27RC250. I can't find one anywhere, and I don't see any cross reference numbers for it either. Anyone know where I can find, or have one they want to sell? If the other one brakes, I'm in trouble. Its a total of 38" forked clevis to forked clevis. Thanks...
  5. Looking for two decent, not cracked or repaired R-RW dash bezels in silver/grey color. I need the bezel that holds the tach and speedo. Part # 8MT519 and the top dash that holds the ash tray # 370R5114. If anyone has any laying around that need a good home, please let me know condition and what you want for them. Thanks...
  6. Yah, I spec one out with Alumitank. 25x59 Polished, shipped to the house was a bit over 1300.00. Might be the way to go.
  7. OK. That sounds easy enough. Thanks for the info...
  8. Just wondering if anyone has ever removed the steering column from inside a R or RW cab to repaint it. If so, any secrets? I want to pull the column and shaft, since when you open the door, it looks pretty nasty when you look up at the underside of the dash. I noticed there a four bolts that hold it in place on the slider. Any ideas or helpful hints would be appreciated. Pictures are what I am referring to, and not my truck, or the photographer...
  9. Looking for a nice left side fuel tank for my Superliner. Need a 25" round, and anywhere between 56 to 67" long. They are about 134 gallon tanks. Nothing dented, patched, and no corrosion please. Center fill top draw. The sending unit is 49" back and fits behind the two rear straps. These tanks where used on the RW, CH, CX. Since I don't really want it shipped, the closer to Pittsburgh PA. The better. Thanks...
  10. Bulb is good, switched it with the other side. Plus, I put on headlight bezels with an LED strip across the bottom. It will not light either being spliced into the black wire. .
  11. I have been going crazy all day yesterday, trying to find the issue. Both left, and right turn signals on my 85 Superliner work as should. The right side marker on the side of the turn signal works as should. The driver side, I can not get the side marker to light up. Now as far as I can see with the test light, there are three wires. Green, black, white. On the right side, I have power to the green (turn signal), black (marker), and assuming the white is the ground with no power on test. Am I correct? Driverside, I am not getting power on the black (marker). I traced it all the way to the fir
  12. I have my 85 Superliner on with Gulfway. Its $259 per year.
  13. Has anyone had any luck with finding a suitable replacement for the silver/grey vinyl upholstery fabric. I need some for my 85 Superliner to do my door panels and window sill arm rest. I have been told the original manufacture is out of business.
  14. Thanks John. I'm sorry I didn't reply sooner. I just saw your reply post. I did find a matching one for my truck.
  15. alex, Looking for a nice rust and damage free R-model driver side door for my 85 superdawg. Have anything laying around?
