  1. Thank you Sir Jim. I didn't even know that site existed . Thank you 41 Chevy for that info. I will check that out. You Guys Rock.
  2. Thank you. I 'll check that out . I tried a couple years ago and they didn't have a specific kit for that year MACK. They were going to measure the cylinders and their components. I was hoping some one might have made an after market kit ready to go. Thanks again:-)

  6. Firemack Help! Oil Filter Wont' Fit

    gmbelt: I have a 1948 w/ a 510A . I believe the set up might be the same. The canister oil filter had a Fram C147...These don't exsist anymore . I tried matching the filter by its size,width, length,dia. of center hole ect. and hydraulic filters seemed to be as close as I could find. My mechanic and cohort said these would work due to the type of oil system on tthe old macks but they run about $15-$30 bucks. My problem on my motor with the NAPA 1503 filter was the outer Diameter of the filter itself. The gasket and center hole fit the tube snug but the filter would drop to the bottom of my canister housing. The inside of the canister had a ridge which the original filters sat on. I used some sheet metal experience and made a disk that sat on the ridge inside the canister that would hold the 1503 filter at the right hieght to snug into the top mounted on the side of the motor. I put some holes in the disk to allow the oil to flow to the bottom of the canister. It is working sofar I have lucked out that in the original gasket still works the one that comes with the 1503 doesn't work but we might have to make our own in the future. Hope this help WECO1MACK505

  9. 1948 Mack

    Hi, Does anybody have an idea where I can get a replacement canister oil filter since Fram"s C147 is obsolete? The 505 I am working on also needs a fiberboard glove box, rubber for the brake and clutch pedals and most important a headlight switch.There is a strong possibllity that the water pump is getting ready to die... can these be rebuilt. any suggestion will help us greatly. Thank you Bob
  10. Hi & 1948 Mack Help

    Hello Good People ! I am located in Carson City, Nv . I have been given the honorable opportunity to take care of and restore a part of our city's fire department history. This veh. is a 1948 Mack 505 Hosewagon ( no pump). It seems to be rare since Mack used the 505 as a mid size pumper. The history is that this Mack was in mid build when the original customer cancelled the order. Carson City's Warren Engine Company #1 had placed an order with Mack for a Hose wagon. Mack offered the fire pumper but the Chief at the time wanted a hosewagon. Thus Truck 3 was born. It has always been confusing since this was a post war build and is thought to have 1947 & 1948 parts. It has been protested at musters. Anyhooooo.. long story longer this fireman got tired of watching this truck rot and I am working toward a goal of making this our city's Honor Guard veh. I would like to keep as much original spec.s and parts .Currently trying to find a replacement for the Fram C147 canister oil filter and a replacement headlight switch. Does anyone know of reproduction ignition wiring harnesses ( dual ignition) I did locate 12 replacement spark plugs. So thank you for being here and reading this . Any help will be greatly needed. Bob
