    I’ve been around Mack’s from the day I was born. I hope to one day have a small collection of old Mack trucks. I’d love an old B-75, or an older H with square fenders, or even an old C-600. Once you go Mack you never go back. I also have a knack for steam locomotives and space travel...

  1. Glad to hear you received similar treatment to me! Never been to either of those places but I’m hoping to head over to this place more regularly...
  2. It’s not hard to steer when you actually get her going, but when you’re stop and go maneuvering through tight city streets it can be quite the workout...
  3. I have a 707, it’s almost all complete minus consumables like fluids and gaskets, there’s a few pushrods that’s have been spent up maybe all of those, and the block has a pretty bad crack in the side of it. Oh, it’s also completely apart. There’s pictures of everything on the thread about my 1953 Mack LS95. Make me an offer and we can go from there. Feel free to message me. Pics here:
  4. Body work and paint should be next, but we might rebuild the last of the fuel lines first, they were fine before but they seem like they might be starting to break down. Who knows, we care much more about getting her operating before making her look pretty, because if she’s out on the road she’ll shine in her own way... arms are tired from turning all through those city streets with Armstrong steering tho, let’s see how long it takes before dad bites the bullet and finds a power steering kit...
  5. Finally got to take the old dog for a much deserved walk... She barked and screamed all the way through the city streets like a bulldog should! So much fun had by all on Saturday. Excuse the purple ribbons, it was for a group of high school seniors whose colors are purple, figured it be a nice little touch for them since they didn’t have a sign to hang on ours like the other apparatus.
  6. Pete still makes 359s and Kenworth still makes W900s. They’ve been updated over the years but they’ve still got that classic look to em. I can’t imagine it’d be too hard to make a classic looking new truck based on Rs, Superliners, Bs, Ls, and Es... If they sold some as gliders I know plenty of people who’d buy atleast one without giving it a second thought.
  7. It’s my fault, everything always seems to go wrong before Pump Primers to make it so I can’t take either of my engines, and this time we were pretty much prepared for anything. Guess I’ve got a whole year to mess something up over here to make sure it goes on next year!
  8. This looks to be about what you’re looking for: https://m.facebook.com/marketplace/item/848842152281623/?ref=browse_tab&search_query=mack&tracking={"qid"%3A"6820742446761672588"%2C"mf_story_key"%3A"3772209402853497"%2C"commerce_rank_obj"%3A"{\"target_id\"%3A3772209402853497%2C\"target_type\"%3A0%2C\"primary_position\"%3A-1%2C\"ranking_signature\"%3A0%2C\"commerce_channel\"%3A503%2C\"value\"%3A0%2C\"upsell_type\"%3Anull}"}
  9. The Zenith on my 707 was the first one we ever attempted to rebuild, and as long as you don’t over tighten the injectors you’ll be fine, they’re supposed to be decently loose...
  10. Awesome truck man! You’ll probably get the info you need to your mechanic if you contact the Mack Museum. There’s 3 different versions of the 707 engine and each one had different ignition timing and governor speeds.
  11. Well that’s to this quarantine I’ve had some extra time on my hands... finally edited my footage from PPP last year for YouTube. As soon as it’s public (should be very soon) enjoy! Also, don’t mind the music towards the end, I needed to fill the noise void and that was the best I could find while avoiding a potential copyright lawsuit...
  12. I told the guy a price on an old Mack and he was 3 seconds away from buying it thinking it was going to make him a fortune, pretty quickly I told him nobody who knows what they’re talking about would pay nearly that much for the thing... he realized quickly that old trucks aren’t worth all that much...
  13. If they got a battery to it and got it to crank over a few times, even if it didn’t start I think that’d raise the price a bit... usually if it turns over you haven’t broken anything too bad... scrap price sounds really good for the moment, but I’d star negotiations a little lower, maybe $2000-$2500
  14. I thought so too, until I began trying to get a better look and noticed the second axel... it’s hidden by a number of things...
  15. This one is the most complete... you can certainly take pieces off the other ones though!
