  1. Depends on the orientation of the handle. Again like the outer handle it would turn ccw. Either push down, or push forward. I have mine attached so to push down.
  2. Look straight in the large hole and you'll see the square hole the handle goes in. I *think* a 1/4" ratchet extension may fit or find a piece of small square stock that fits. A flat blade screwdriver would work in a pinch if it fits well. Rotate the square part counterclockwise and the door may (should) open. On mine the latch mechanism was blown apart and required removal of the inner door panel. If push comes to shove, removal of the lock bead and the rear window is another option.
  3. Looking to purchase 2 each of the B61, Thermodyne, and Diesel emblems that belong on the hood. I realize that Watts has them but Im unable to shell out the $550 for new ones at this time. If anyone has any that they are willing to part with, message me or call me. 484-225-0561 Thanks Frank
  4. If you take the filter element out, it should have the number embossed either on the steel sides or on the top of the filter element. Mine is a luberfiner 500c and takes a 51554 cartridge.
  5. After I found 3 of the cross reference filter numbers I called it good. You need to find a GOOD parts place. My local napa pretty much refuses to use their books and if they dont want to order you something they will just say it's not available. This is why I mostly deal online. If they dont need to help me I don't need to go there. Find a local big truck shop. They WILL get it for you, if they dont have it. I'm no expert (far from it in fact) but I'm pretty sure you cant just remove the hoses and plug the ports. I ordered 4 of these filters off ebay a month ago. They're still being

  7. Anybody have a length on the speedometer cable, not the conduit, for a B61 with a duplex? I'm measuring my old broken one and I'm getting 93.5" can anyone confirm that? Thanks Frank
  8. Na, my building is the red one in the front view picture. Built by Pioneer. The Morton is at the neighbors farm down the road.
  9. Yeah, that's the pic that convinced me to keep the cab white. I was going to paint the cab and hood green w black fenders but my 26 Chevy has those colors. My dually pickup is white. But I saw yours, and my wife and I both agreed to go that route.
  10. It's either a 59 or 60. I'm waiting for the Mack Museum to reopen to get a production date. The truck has the 673 with a direct duplex. The fronts are 10-22 and the rears are 11.00-22 off road tires. Thanks everyone for the kind words. Yarnall- I'll call you. My messages may not be hitting you.
  11. I just wanted to thank everyone on this site that helped me along the way. And also show off my new playtoy. I found this truck about 4 months ago. It ran real well and had a real solid cab. It needed all of the front body pieces except the grill shell. I think the PO sent them out to be sandblasted and never got them back. I spent some time doing bodywork which I hate doing and probably could've done a better job but I wanted a driver. Something I dont have to be worried about parking at a show. And something my kids can climb in and not worry about a scratch. I was able to take it for a ride
  12. Anybody know anything on these grill screens or have one on a truck? There are small holes in my shell that may have been to attach one of these screens. The holes are not punched, looks like maybe a small self tapper. And they're not equidistant.
  13. I agree it looks very much like the trailer valve bracket in the pic but with that wonky keyhole and no other holes to mount the valve its gotta be something else.
  14. That's what I'm going to make it into but I wouldn't know how to attach the valve as theres no other bolt holes. My trailer valve only has the 2 mounting holes.
