  1. Can't do them on the site. If you're using Smart phone turn the phone 90 degrees and the should come out correct. Paul
  2. Man o man every time I hear of computer issues and time lost with late models I go out and look at my pre electronic units and smile. I got contracts from the Feds because my units aren't computer.
  3. I guess Cocktail lounges are a no no?
  4. It is a step up. His original title was fries packaging specialist at Micky D's
  5. Yes it would have been but with a different cam. The non commercial hemi from 1957 on was the 392 for Chrysler and DeSoto. Dodge used the commercial 354 in the 1.5 ton and up trucks. Mack wet from the 354 hemi to the 413 wedge in early 1964 in Fire chasis and the R400 series. You still have 180 h.p. but close to 360 to 400 pounds of torque in a steady power curve from about 1200 rpm to about 3800 rpm. The only weak link if you run the early hemi is the unobtainium water pumps, but there is a kit to run a 396 to 454 Chevy big block pump. They are very reliable units if you don't severely abuse them. Been using the first gen hemis for drag racing for many many years and only had 2 fail that were un repairable.But 80% Benzine / 20% gas will stress them a bit.
  6. That is a factory PTO /Drive for the MACK build Double Screw Dump body unit. Here is a few pics for about 1929 to 1932 or so. I had to photograph them because I can't flatten the book enough to scan it. The hole one the lower left is where the up / down control rod passes through to the screw feed on the dump unit. So your unit had a MACK built heavy dump body from the factory. You can see it clear in one photo. One of my AC 6 units has the same set up. Trucks at my property in Va and I'm in Maine so not photos http:// http:// http:// http://
  7. That is a commercial /industrial 354 used primarily for Civil Defense Sirens. Specific cam for low range torque and 1.75 lower compression. I use the heads from the 354 engines for my 392 drag engines, better flow qualities. So if you swap in an other hemi , I'd like to buy the heads for the castings, don't care about the valve train. https://www.amusingplanet.com/2019/08/the-chrysler-air-raid-siren-was-so.html
  8. Looks to be the Commercial 354 hemi with 2 barrel good for 180 h/p and around 260 lbs of torque. that puts a late 1959 very early 1960 build date on the bus as 1959 was the last year of the first gen hemi production. Need engine stuff PM me I have a lot of 354 and 392 engines.
  9. My books show the FA511 as used under R600. R685 R685ST and R 686ST and a slightly different shape. Maybe some one swapped it in ?
  10. Turbo impellers and bearing ok? Anything restricting the exhaust out of the turbo? Leaking between intake manifold and head?
  11. So I gather they were mostly Nigerian Kings flush with their inheritance of 5 billion naira? ( value of .0027 of 1 USD)
  12. I believe their lure of free stuff like college and money for not working replaced their years of parking their windowless vans in front of a school or college and offering candy and puppies for their victems to come into the van. At least they're keeping up on the times. . .
  13. They are not worth rebuilding in my opinion for new about $80 or $90 and less than a hour to swap them. Raneys has them also MACK part # 36QX43M https://www.raneystruckparts.com/mack-ch-cl-cv-cx-chn-door-hinge-mak-36qx43m/
  14. They are not to far from my farm in Riverhead close to the Atlantic so check salt air damage. The heavy towing has been open since 2010 before that they had a chase truck.
  15. Benhoff Ford, Dodge and Binder sleeper bodies. http:// Orville 1936 Ford Stoughton Trans- sleeper box was patented in 1936.
  16. They were used Orville and Benhof on all the sleeper conversions for all makes from the 1935 on. They used 1935 to 1940 Ford Coupe quarter glass and gaskets, some even could be roll down. .
  17. I want to know why you Democrats are such cowards that you have not yet launched another civil war to free America of the totalitarian nightmare of President Donald J. Trump. I mean, if he’s truly Hitler 2: Electric Boogeyman, then isn’t it your sacred duty to remove this cancer on our body politic with arms if necessary? Look, I get that you Dems have a track record on insurrections designed to oppress the rights of Americans you feel superior to that is pretty poor (0-1) but come on, heroes of democracy, make your move! Just sitting here in the midst of this crisis you keep whining about makes you look like sissies or lying piles of talking garbage. Actually, both. Your hero, Jerry Nadler, while on parole from the chocolate factory, told the Senate this about our elected president: "Only his will goes. He is a dictator. This must not stand and that is another reason he must be removed from office by any means necessary ." A dictator? Hey, that’s bad, right? I mean, unless the dictator is a leftist – wasn’t Castro dreamy? But since this is a threat to our democracy, because Trump is a non-leftist dictator, aren’t you guys morally obligated to take action and remove him? It’s obvious that those treacherous treason-loving traitors of treachery, the Republican senators, won’t toss the guy who did nothing wrong out of office so you can start working on throwing Mike Pence out of office, likely for the high crime and misdemeanor of trying to make America into The Handmaid’s Tale? You must act now! Go home to your mom’s basements, dorms, tacky urban apartments and billionaire mansions and get your guns and… Oh, right. Awkward! You are against "scary" guns. . . By the way, if Trump is a dictator, why do you want to disarm the American people so the only one with guns is…Dictator Trump? Whatever, let’s see if you can focus. Okay, maybe you don’t have any guns like real men. Let’s assume you can find some guns. Now you need to water the kale bush of liberty with the blood of patriots. Okay, you’ll probably want to find another word than “patriots” since the term “patriots” upsets you – but because Trump is a “dictator,” we’re obviously in an extreme situation that calls for extreme measures. It’s totally time to figuratively fire on Ft. Sumter again, Democrats. Maybe this time it will work out better for you. Jerry Nadler will lead his unit, the 5’1 Oompa Loompa Brigade, known as “Wonka’s Own,” against the perilous peril of a president who got elected without the liberal elite’s permission. Can’t you just see him standing there before his men, women, and non-binary others, a midget Mussolini, his belt cinched tightly around his clavicle so that no matter where he wears his pistol it’s always in a shoulder holster? Then there’s the googly-eyed Audie Murphy of the Intelligence Committee, Generalissimo Adam Schiff, ready to lead the dreaded “Fighting Pencilnecks” of the 69th Brigade into battle uttering their unit motto “Ed Buck who?” Trump’s a dictator, so of course, Schiff will fight because if America falls under the rule of a dictator he has to be removed, right? Others would join the fight too. Ted Lieu can be your JAG. Perhaps Rashida Talib could help lead the kind of battlefield victories her pals the Palestinian terrorists are known for. And Ilhan Omar, who still has a beef with the Army for running up the score against the dirtbag murderers in Mogadishu, would no doubt resist alongside her brothers/husbands-in-arms. Maybe “That’s Lieutenant Colonel to You!” Vindman could finally get a battalion command. Colin Kapernick could try out for a unit, and when no one calls him he can tell you how you are all racists! Of course, cruise director Cap’n Bill Kristol and his crew of Fredocon swabbies can handle naval operations. Ahoy! And even Eric Swalwell can contribute despite his well-known aversion to the kind of weapons that men use in the defense of freedom. He can drop his shorts be in charge of chemical weapons and poison gas. Remember, removing President Trump is a sacred, somber, prayerful moral obligation because he’s a “dictator.” Words actually mean something. “Dictator” means something, and a lot of Americans have had experience with real ones either before moving here or while deployed. So, the next time you pampered wusses want to spew your MSNBC / CNN-approved rhetoric, save it. Pick up a weapon or shut the hell up.
  18. Two loads of Orville Coach sleeper conversions and fire truck cabs coming in the the MACK factory in the late 50's early 60's.
  19. Way too much free time, alcohol or both!!
  20. The 2020 version in Westbrook had a welcome back party today. . . I went. The disc is close to 5 inches thick now.
  21. Not much else to do in the bitter cold but snowmen and go see the Ice Disc
  22. Enough snow in Maine last week to build my Snow Cannibals Men
  23. Seen a lot of "well off" people with little respect or any manners. The general attitude for clearing their trash is "that's what the help is paid for" or as my "entitled liberal daughter in law" stated "I don't do manual labor like clearing the table off". So last time they came over when Gail was alive she insisted that we don't give her any dishes or utensils. . . just a few wet naps. Wife had a bit of a sarcastic streak worse than mine.
