  1. I've always wanted to hear opinions from other country's.... Thank You, Jojo✌️
  2. I see what "F" said and I chuckled... I'm guessing this is an E-Tech engine? I used to go in to "Mack Software", and open up the governor seeing and change it from---"Min-Max" to "Allspeed". dTo try to give it a little more Pep-in-the-step... This doesnt give 50 extra horses... Just better response, "F" and "V"?? Edit this post if needed... Jojo
  3. Hell Yeah!!!!!!!!! Great post's.. It brings me back...... The 12 spd. I drove was in a 78 RD tractor. The deep reduction switch was up in the dash... Looking back. That was a real Mack, I would love to have one... Jojo
  4. In '99, I drove for a construction co. in Maine for only 2 years,, But I drove '77-'97 Mack's... My favorite was the '79 long framed RD tractor, with a tri-axle framed dump... That tranny was so versitile, and multi-speed reverse was very cool for backing on svc roads around the job site.. I also drove the X-107 twin stick.. another multi speed reverse tranny in a tri-axle dump truck.. I learned to respect that tranny... after that --- no more stopping in the middle of the intersection, to start over.. Bullet proof and proven.... It may be slow, but it will Pull!!.. jojo..
  5. Your'e right mark.... I forgot that.... 🤫.... Jojo
  6. I have a 1948 KB-7... I will be learning about a truck that is new to me.. I cant wait to get started on it... I'm proud to have it.. Jojo
  7. Mack did away with the o-ring... On the liner there is the tall ring(step) around the liner, measure the low groove just outside the circumference of the tall step.. you will use a small amt. of Mack Gray sealant on the shelf in the counter bore to seal in the coolant. the head gasket will take care of the top... jojo
  8. When I was driving late 70's R models, I learned to count, One One thousand,,,Two... I would double clutch,,, Then On "Two" I would grab the next gear.. It still works for me today... I rarely get to drive a 107 or 2070 anymore.. In youre case a 105.... same-same... Jojo
  9. I really wish I was there to see it, and hear it fire up!!!! Jojo
  10. it's all good... i was guessing what you had, when you said 5 spd. i said 105.. The Mack triple countershaft tranny's, were the same in the main box... the added back box changes it up,, with a few exceptions... Jojo. Hope I cleared it up sir..
  11. the 105 is very basic, and bullet proof... triple countershaft.. just be patient shifting it... it's no Eaton.. Jojo
  12. Mabey you can find one of these... The Mack 107 tranny book is around too... Good luck, Great find.. jojo
  13. I can tell you this, if it's an internal E.G.R. engine that runs good and you know the maintainance was good, It's a desireable truck... JUst my 2 cents... Jojo
  14. what about the axle do you want to know thats not stamped in the carrier housing, (Mack Rear).. or on the data plate on the axle tube, (Eaton rears)? Jojo
  15. me too... I no longer work at the mack dealer.. I left mid-june 2018.... I printed a boat load of svc info at home and put it in 3 ring binders... Luckily with my Mobile Mechanic business, I am able to avoid MP's and M-Drives... For now.... I hope the pics I sent help Tim... Jojo
  16. I know the quality of the pics is poor... I remember being fortunate to find the "legends" still in the truck.. I photocopied them and put them in one of my binders, for later use... it was faster than trying to use "Impact"..LOL! Jojo
  17. well somehow, I split the EPDM and the top fuse panel pics... Sorry.. Jojo
  18. secondary throttle,, pull it out and twist to lock,, for whatever you need the engine to run up higher.... P.T.O. for example.. Jojo
  19. I am looking to buy a rear brake drum, the dia. is 15+ inches, hard to read it through the rust....the width of the shoes is 4 1/2".. the drum is 5 5/8" wide on the braking surface. I would also like to find an old parts book, and svc manual... Thanks, Jojo
  20. It is a very Cool piece,, I would love one in my Mack curio cabinet... Jojo
  21. Well folk's, I'm going to end my time in this thread.... Jojo
