  1. Any idea of the torque specs for the manifold bolts? The gasket is a metal type manifold gasket so it might be a little more than I’m thinking.
  2. Ill check more into it tomorrow, hopefully I can just unbolt the oil filter housing from the block and replace the gasket and be done. I already have that gasket, it might be a pain in the ass to do it without touching the oil cooler, but we'll see.
  3. I've got an '01 E7 460 that has the double spin on with centrifugal filter on top. It seems like the oil filter housing is leaking down the side of the block. It seems to be getting worse over time so it's time to get at it. I'm new to working on this engine but it seems like the oil cooler is right there with it. I'm thinking drain down coolant, unhook lines going to the cooler, unbold housing at block, replace gasket or whatever it has and bolt everything back up. Does this seem about right and is there anything I should know or any extra parts I will need? I tried searching and couldn't find a topic on it. Thanks for the help.
  4. It’s been close to a year since they were replaced and I did use neoprene but they have been fine. It’s been going on for a couple weeks. Im gonna get a buddy to drive it in a circle while I walk beside it. I’ll also check everything everyone has suggested.
  5. Camelback, the elephant pads were replaced, bud wheels.
  6. All tires are the same, how can I manually check to make sure it’s not locked in?
  7. I wouldn’t think so. Shouldn’t the power divider only engage when the switch is flipped?
  8. I have an 01 RD688 Dump and it mostly does it when I'm loaded but when I turn sharp I can hear a popping sound coming from possibly the front drive axle. I'm not sure if its a bearing or possibly some splines slipping. I figure if it was something with an axle or rear end it would do it all the time and not only when loaded. I've heard bearings can do that when they are under a load and going bad. Its not a low thud pop but somewhat of a high pitch pop (yes I know this sounds crazy). It will do it a 3 to 4 times in a turn then stop when I straighten out. Suspension bushings were replaced mid last year. King pins and tie rod ends replaced a couple months ago. Ive crawled around and pulled and yanked on everything, all drive shafts, U-joints and torsion bars seem good and tight. Has anyone had this and what was it? Thanks.
  9. By shoulder your talking about the front and rear of the pan or the sides?
  10. Does anyone know the torque specs for the oil pan bolts on an ‘01 E7 460? Thanks.
  11. Is dynamat the best for soundproofing?
  12. Hello everyone, I’m Josh. I’ve been running my 01’ RD688 with an E7 460 for over a year now. Seems to be a solid truck as long as you keep up with fluids and grease. I originally didn’t plan on getting a Mack but this one jumped out to me. Pretty clean for an 01 dump truck and the 460 seems to pull heavy loads just fine (though I’ve heard the 427 will walk the dog). All in all I’m very happy with the truck and look forward to putting many more miles on it. It ain’t the most comfortable truck but I’ve done things them long noses wouldn’t even try.
