  1. Thanks for your offer.. that would be a little too big for what I’d need it for unfortunately.
  2. Anyone know of any Cummins NH220 engines for sale in the Pittsburgh PA area?
  3. That Fuller 5H74T you mention, it's an ancient 5 speed transmission, I think it pre-dates the T905 series. It's very small (if I'm remembering correctly), and I don't even think you can get internal parts for those anymore.
  4. It's been a while since I've been exposed to anything with 2 sticks, but I believe you're correct about the auxiliary transmission being a 3 speed. But look closer at the tag, because it may say 8031C instead of E.
  5. Anybody ever use one of those waterproof class B RV covers to cover an R model? Or is there any type of cover out there made for trucks? Have to move mine outside for about 6 months and I’d like to protect it somehow.
  6. Yea most likely. I contacted a local Mack dealer and the “kid” at the parts desk said it looks like there’s four pieces and it’ll be 500 each for the toe pans and 275 each for the floor panels. Wow!
  7. Ok thank you. Let me know. I sent you an email on here too. I checked Watts website, the have the sills for under the doors but did not see any floor pieces.
  8. I have a '72 R685ST, it's time to replace floor panels...looks like there is a toe pan and a floor panel on each the driver and passenger side, 4 pieces total. Does anyone have any info and/or leads on if there are aftermarket replacements out there somewhere.
  9. Well that’s an idea, but then I’ll have the whole department to feed ☕️ 🍩
  10. thanks for all the info! "Not For Hire" would be visible just to be safe. Anybody with historic plates...has any cops ever bothered you guys for driving "too frequently"? I've heard people say that they've been pulled over and had an officer tell them a truck with Historic plates isn't supposed to be used as general transportation. I mean, when the weather's nice out how can they stop you from taking a Sunday drive in the summer and going for ice cream??
  11. Yeah it seems the DMV doesn't like handing out historic plates. I won't be doing anything commercially, if anything, I'd haul another antique vehicle with it to truck shows. But it would be my own personal property. I've noticed a lot of people at the truck shows do not have a CDL. Some plates even say recreational vehicle, but I don't know how they pulled that off.
  12. Did they make you get a US DOT number? Wouldn’t think one is needed as it’s not commercial but I’m not sure. Does the historical plates include the registration?
  13. Anybody know how to go about registering an antique semi and antique trailer in the state of Ohio?? I get different answers from the DMV each time I call, so figured I’d ask on here as I’m sure there’s others who have registered antique semi’s for recreational and show purposes in the state of OH.
  14. Aside from HP and Torque, what are some things (if any) that would make an Econodyne engine (say an EM6-275) differ from the older 6 cyl. Maxidyne ENDT engines? (I imagine emissions and maybe four valve heads but just wondering if there's anything else). Operating ranges the same?
