  1. Contemplating transmission upgrade in my truck.

    Larry, I have a 900 series 10 speed with 1 3/4 " shaft (but no stick). It maybe a short shaft for single disc - will have to measure. BUT no side mount bolt holes which is going to make a mess of supporting everything. If interested - you know my number. Over & out from Ignorant Ridge - your local source for real FAKE NEWS!
  2. B Model Air Governor

    Mike, You damn right I'm getting soft! I ain't got as much time left as I had 20 years ago. I got to go fast, cool and easy. And, I might just add another step on left fuel tank - that's getting to be a big step for a little old guy. Larry, Your evaporator is located under the dash - correct? Think I would like a backwall unit. Would keep clutter down under dash. You guys keep cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3. B Model Air Governor

    Well, I got the answer to my own question. On the end of the governor closest to right fender, there are 2 small hex plugs and 1 big hex plug. First, drain air system. The small plugs have filters behind them - one closest to radiator filters system air pressure. One closest to firewall filters signal pressure to compressor unloader . Now the big hex plug covers a 1/4" nut that adjusts system pressure. Turn nut clockwise to increase cut-in and cut-out pressure. So, another old fragment of ancient history doing its job correctly again. Speaking of old junk - I got most of bugs worked out of engine/transmission change in the old Mack and WHAT A BUNCH OF FUN TO DRIVE!! More horsepower IS good. I had put 38,000 miles on that unpowered hunk of junk in 15 years. It was getting to the point that I didn't want to drive it anymore. But with power steering and a bunch of horsepower, it might become my daily driver! Think might look into air conditioning for the ole beast.
  4. B Model Air Governor

    Governor is located above heater hoses in picture. There is no rubber cap - all brass plugs. Got several old B's, can pull one off to check - just ain't got to it yet. Took test run other day, runs like a rocket BUT --------- turbo blowing oil into intake, 4 exhaust gaskets blew out, still can't get jakes working and power steering box is leaking at pitman arm shaft. So my point is - we'll get to governor in due time.
  5. After 1 1/2 years, the old "Large SUV" came to life with a new engine, trans and power steering. All new gauges including boost and pyro. Well don't you know, the new air gauge shows psi is running 90 - 110. Guess the old gauge was so hard to read, I just assumed air pressure was ok. Now my question - can the old style air governors (not D2) be adjusted? This governor has served well for almost 20 years plus all the time before I got it. Hate to change to Mexican D2 governor if I can keep from it
  6. 1965 Mack B615

    Here are some filter numbers as I have a beast like yours but without the winch and exhaust brake. Engine oil - Wix 51233 Primary fuel - Wix 33405 Secondary fuel - Wix 33218 Think there is a filter in the power steering pump but I don't have that number. Good luck with the old gal and be gentle with it!

  8. B Model Registry

    Well ain't this cute. I was looking at page 1 when I wrote the above post. And when I finally go to the second page, there it is - jeeprider01@yahoo.com. Dumb is as dumb does!
  9. B Model Registry

    It looks like the man that ran "oldmacksrus.com" with the B model registry and all the other B model info has dropped off the face of the earth. Can't make contact with him for last couple years. Some where on BigMackTrucks tonight, I found some one who says they have a copy of B model registry on spread sheet. I tried opening the sheet but it kept crashing. His name was Mike P. address jeeprider01@yahoo.com. I am wondering if any of the other info from oldmacksrus is listed on Mike's spread sheet. So Mike, if you will contact me, maybe we can compare notes to see if you have all the info from 2014 edition of registry, the last one I did. Anything you are missing, I can supply. Contact me "2gannaways@mynewera.net". Also, anyone with a B that wishes to register can contact me at same address. Thanks, Tom

  13. A guy I know has decided to start cleaning out his B parts. There is a S/A dump, S/A wrecker, parts trucks, running 673s, 1 707 gas, transmissions, aux. transmissions, rear ends, B cab, doors, fenders, new KD 517 lights, Ford truck parts, and some Cat 3208s. Don't expect bargains or give aways - I've know him for long time and advice is about all he'll give away! Fred Pettey Alexandria, OH 740-817-0507 Good Luck !!!!!!!!!!!!
  14. B model registry problem

    fxfymn, I don't have a clue what you are talking about. To be truthful, I don't have any business owning a computer, and I still don't have a smart phone. I'm pretty much still in the Fred Flintstone era - and kinda happy there. But for your suggestion, I open for some help if you are willing. Thanks Tom
  15. Superdog called me couple weeks ago, couldn't hook up to "oldmacksrus.com" for the B registry. I got to thinking - I hadn't received any new entries for the registry for a long time. Barry Umberger in VA was the giant brain that was running the site. Phone calls come back "disconnected or number has been changed". No replys to email. Now I'm wondering if something has happened to him. If anything new turns up, I'll holler. I did all the registry in WORD 97 as a document - no special program. Now we got a problem - the newer computers can't open this so I can't send it to anybody with a newer computer. I had to pay extra $150 on this laptop to get MS Office just to work the registry. Superdog's daughter says I can scan the registry in paper form and transfer it to my laptop in PDF form. There are a bunch of pages to scan and try to get all in one file! If anybody has any ideas on how I'm going to get out of this mess, please speak up. Probably best to send to my email - 2gannaways@mynewera.net - covered up in work and don't have a lot of time to check BMT site every night. So, if anybody has B model serial numbers to put in registry, please send straight to me - 2 gannaways@mynewera.net - till we get something figured out. Thanks from Ignorant Ridge Tom
