  1. Bump! . . . . Still looking for a second rear mount pto, does anyone know of or have one steve
  2. Maybe the gear knob got a lot of polishing haha! But really it is a beautiful truck that I would love and be proud to own. Regards the gold/silver ornaments, I had a 72. 237 6 speed maxidyne (all Mack) gold emblem, then a 81. 320 12 speed coolpower (all Mack) the last new Mack I purchased was a 87 maxidyne 300 12 speed (all Mack) that had silver emblems. So Mack’s we’re not consistent with the emblems. I was in Mack’s workshop 67-72 and back then all thermodynes were silver emblems and maxidynes were gold, that obviously went haywire.
  3. There’s a lot of wear on the gear stick for such low miles
  4. No worries mate no hurry, just thought u may not have received my email
  5. I’m fairly sure Tylden in Vic have those plastic trim washers as I purchased some 2 years ago. They also have those plastic nuts that run around the top of the air cleaner (very hard to get) Being new they should last another 30 years.
  6. Thanks could you send me a few pictures, I’ll pm you my email
  7. Sounds like Renault had too many chiefs at the time. I’m sure if Mack’s had the reins back then one wouldn’t see so many different HPs, they would have concentrated more on reliability and performance. Not saying the E7 is unreliable in the least
  8. I thought Volvo dropped the conventional cab awhile back, maybe it’s just don’t see them here.

    I have sent numerous emails to wreckers in the states, most have been unanswered some that advertised them say sold. I placed an add here requesting one but no replies as yet. I guess they are getting obsolete now. The good news is Paul I found one in QLD, this guy was interested in a couple of ally tanks I have for sale, when I mentioned I was looking for a rear mount pto he had one. I swapped the tanks for it. Sent the 3 bolt cover plate yesterday so he can remove it. Ya’know sometimes a treasure is found on your own doorstep. I’m still looking for second one so I can remove the RR and put the 12 speed back in,(another truck) It had been in there near 35 years and has never been touched except for replacing the the 2 small main shaft spigot bearings awhile back. Nothing wrong with the RRs but they will never be a 12 speed. When the QLD pto comes down I can get the part number and order another from my esteemed dealer . . . NOT, haha

    Another scenario could be . . . . They getting rare and no one wants to part with them, but keep looking mate one will turn up. Wish I could say the same for a rear mount pto 😫 steve
  11. True, recently I needed a couple of fuel tank cap gaskets ( you know the ones that are made of cork ) I requested 2 tank cap gaskets for the large brass caps. He toddled of to his computer with my vin and started tapping away, after quite awhile he returned asking me ‘ what does a tank cap gasket do ‘ doh I nearly fell over. What hope do we have. Haha!
  12. Haha! Cool Paul. Oh btw couldn’t you find some “coon” cheese to put on the Fruehauf. steve
