  1. 75 Mack

    Leaking air and oil

    I have a 75 f model Mack that will not build pressure. When I started looking around I found a valve under the cab at the brake pedal that was leaking air and oil. Can I just replace it or is the oil a sign of a bigger problem? Also I keep reading about air dryers on brake systems but I have not been able to find one. Are they on the older trucks?
  2. I have done that with my 7.3 before. I guess I just need a 40 acre lot lot to learn the truck. Thanks for the help.
  3. As I said I’m new to big trucks. I have a 7.3 6 speed but shifting gears in the Mack is a LOT different. Do y’all have any pointers. I do good in reverse but you have to go forward sometime.
  4. I know they replaced the passenger side a few years ago. I noticed today that there are 2 chips in the driver side.
  5. I have more pics just having trouble uploading them. I’ll get more up soon. It is a 1975 f model. When it comes to getting parts for these trucks how hard are they to find?
  6. Just got this truck that was in wife’s family. I don’t know much if anything about big trucks. The vin indicates it should have the 237 engine. It has the 5 speed. They put the bed and ramps on it to haul their dozers.

    I will try to get some better pics. It’s a f785st which from the little research I’ve done has the 675 engine with 237 HP. They added the bed and ramps to pull the dozer onto the truck.
