  1. Haven’t been on here in forever since my email changed. (661)303-2719, give me a call. This site’s changed so much I don’t know how to navigate it very well.
  2. Found an air leak on my shutterstat valve where the rod comes out. Got a 61' G model with an NH250 Cummins. What seals the air inside the cylinder? There are 2 rubber type plungers that are inside the cylinder and a smaller rubber dome shaped piece towards the top where the shaft comes out of the cylinder. Is the smaller one towards the top where it seals? It doesn't fit snug around the shaft. Has anyone rebuilt one of these with parts from a local parts store? If so what did you use? I would upload a pic but my images always fail to upload. The new format on this site is terrible, at least fo
  3. I've picked up a 61' G model a few years ago from the original owner. He told me it had a 250 Cummins in it. This truck had the original plates on it with a 62' registration tag, original title, it was pretty much a time capsule. I have tinkered on Mack engines but have little knowledge of Cummins. It has a turbo on it and a tag on the fuel pump says NT-280. There's another tag on the drive pump that says NH 250. I was under the understanding that a 250 Cummins didn't have a turbo and I'm assuming you could've put one on at a later time but he seemed to have kept the truck all original. Can an
  4. I've been out of the loop for some time now. Decided to get out of the heat and crappy air of California's Central Valley and head west to the Central Coast. 60-70 degree temps year round and clean air has been good the last year and a half. Only bad thing is I sold my place to move and my Nack collection took a hit due to the fact I wouldn't be able to find a place to store all three. It was a tough decision to thin the herd but it will be a much greater quality of life for the whole family. I sold my H63 and H61 to Brad in NC but kept a completely original, one owner 61' G Model. Currently r
  5. I agree on keeping it too or if you'd like to free up some shop space you could store it at the beach in CA. at my place, no charge.
  6. Nice. Doesn't get any better than an H63. I ended up moving to the beach and had to sell my H61 & H63 to Brad Wikes cause space over here is a premium. I kept my 61' G model cause it was the cleanest, most original one of my bunch and I'm holding out hope that when I buy a place I can find a house with a small RV parking spot for it. Been a few years since I've gotten to tinker on anything and I sure do miss it but clean, cool air and being able to surf anytime has lessened the pain. I sure don't miss the smog and 110 degree summers of California's Central Valley at all. Good find and hope
  7. Glad to see Brad is taking my old blue H61 out and about.
  8. Relocated to the beach so finding a lot big enough to store 3 trucks wasn't realistic. I kept my 61' G Model. It's too clean and original. Pretty much just needs to be taken apart, painted and put back together. RV parking will be a priority while buying cause I'm not getting rid of all of my trucks. Brad seemed like a good guy. I know he'll fix them up right and appreciate them. I know he just went through a split with the wife and she took down his web page. He has a FB page now. Brads Classic Trucks.

  10. Just sold my 61 & 63 to Brad so he's got 1 more cherry picker.
  11. Found a decent H63 for sale in Winnipeg if anybody's looking for one. Says it runs and drives. Somebody better snatch her up.
  12. Got the G home yesterday, spent half the day cleaning out the inside. Underneath all the dust and dirt was a pretty nice interior. All the gauges and labels are in great shape. I even found some old emergency road reflectors still in their boxes, two aluminum thermos looking road flare holders full of flares. Cab jack has a bad seal and one of the rams is leaking pretty bad so I couldn't jack up the cab. Gonna pull two rams from my stash to stick on there and hope I have the old jack from my H63 laying around so I can check out what's under the cab tomorrow. Will keep you all updated with what
  13. Trust me if I had the room it'd look like Sanford and Son at my place. I see lots of things I'd like to drag home but mama keeps me in check.
  14. Tires on the G model are 22.5" by the way. Here's the REO. The REO has been there quite sometime as you can tell by the tree growing up between the grill and bumper. The grandson says he plans on restoring the REO at some point but I hope he atleast cuts down the tree soon. Fortunately it hasn't done any damage other than bending the grill in a tad.
