  1. When I was in high school I worked at my uncles gas station, one customer had a 1930 Rolls Royce right hand drive left hand shift. I moved it once and I'm still traumatized 40 plus years later.......

    Bumper Sticker:

    Thanks!! its now on my front door. Paul
  8. It's not just Mack or dealers. (Although I had to wait 2 weeks for rocker cover gasket for my DM). It is computers. Parts countermen used to have hands on knowledge of what they sold,most were floor mechanics who moved to the parts room. Now you move from fast food to parts. Add in bean counters who look only at what moves the fastest and that is most of the problem. We had a few real auto part stores here,Napa and Devo both who used not only computers but REAL CATOLOGS!!! Both out of business. I spent the better part of Monday trying to buy a dozen 1/2 i.d. star washers The new parts stores had no idea what it was because it wasn't in the computer (plus I think last week the counter help was working at Mac Donalds) I went to the Mack dealer...after showing what a star washer was.....I heard the phrase " It's not in the computer, whats it for?" "It's for the ground straps on a 1969 Mach DM" "we don't stock any parts for that old a truck" "than look it up for a 2009 Mack." "whats it for?" Well long story short...I pointed to the Bowmen cabinet and said there are the washers I need on the top rack, I left without them ,I couldn't be billed because they weren't in the computer......... but hey do you want fries with that??
  9. Grand kids bought one and swapped the battery pack from one of their R/C cars and upped the power.....sure stings
  10. The Alamo It was March 6, 1836, and on that fateful day, Davy Crockett woke up and rose from his bunk on the main floor of the Alamo. He then walked up to the observation post along the west wall of this fort. William B. Travis and Jim Bowie were already there, looking out over the top of the wall. These three great men gazed at the hordes of Mexicans moving steadily toward them. With a puzzled look on his face, Crockett turned to Bowie and said......... "Jim, are we having some landscaping done today?"
  11. I would measure from spring to rebound stop mount on both sides to see if it is a weak spring. (assuming it is not chassis twist). I'd also look for worn spring shackle bushings and or a broken leaf for starters. Had a similar problem on my DM and it was a combo of worn spring bushings and a broken leaf behind one of the spring clamps. Paul
  12. Fresh from my inbox!! Everyone seems to be wondering why Muslim terrorists are so quick to commit suicide. Let's see now... No Christmas, No television, No cheerleaders, No Nude Women, No car races, No football, No soccer, No pork BBQ, No hot dogs, No burgers, No chocolate chip cookies, No lobster, No nachos, No Beer nuts, No alcohol, No Beer !!!!!!!! Rags for clothes and towels for hats. Constant wailing from the guy next-door because he's sick and there are no doctors. Constant wailing from the guy in the tower. On your knees facing east most of the day. More than one wife. You can't shave. Your wives can't shave.. You can't shower to wash off the smell of donkey cooked over burning camel dung. Your bride is picked by someone else. She smells just like your donkey. Then they tell you that when you die it all gets better! I mean, really, is there a mystery here?
  13. Do you have a picture and part number/ maker. I'm at Hersey for the fall meet every year and am loooking for a lot AC parts Not a big deal to add your monmeter on the look for list.. Paul
  14. Radios are a fixed ground. A positive ground will not work in a negative system. The radio I got for myDM at Radio Shack had a positive ground / negative ground switch on it. Paul
  15. GEE and I even gave it a 1941 Chevy Fog light too...........
  16. I never knew Mack ran the Hall Scoots in the B models . Thanks for the link and new knowlrdge. Paul
  17. I got her a Riding-lawn mower and she still complains. My wife has always wanted a riding lawn mower. She works all day and was always tired when she came home from work and thought that a riding lawn mower would help her get the yard work done quicker so she would have more time for the chores inside the house. So, being the handy sort of guy that I am, I made her a riding lawn mower. I guess I thought she would squeal with delight or something and give me a big hug. To this day I have never been able to understand why some women are so hard to please.
  18. The last I did was a 1937 Ford from Positive ground to Negative ground. I changed the cables at the battery not the starter, including replacing the cable ends,. The terminals are one large one smaller. I reversed the wires on the volt meter and the amp gauge.I repolerized the generator (not Alternator) and made no changes on the regulator . As I recall that was all the other gauges all functioned correctly. It was a long time ago so I may have forgotten a small detail. Paul
  19. Had the same thing happen with a B81. I heard a noise on acceleration, pull over to look and found one of the head bolts gone and loosing collant from the hole. Got a garbage can and filled it with water to keep topping it off when the temps rose and got it the 20 miles home. I expected the worse and it wasn't. Did the head gaskets and all new bolt and never had the problem again. Wasn't that bad a job as I recall. Paul
  20. Almost looks like it got a lot of DMM twin steer in it or the other way around. Sure like it Paul
  21. They look worse in photos than in person. The '29 (the one with no sheetmetal) actually ran, that blue gas can was enough to move it to where we took the photo. Them and my "B' mixer were at Roanoke Cement in Riverhead L.I. The AC's were in a shed and were mainly intact until they were vandalized. The Mixer is a different story. Parked when the yard was closed in 1975 with 5 or 6 yards of concrete in the drum. I haven't figured what I'm going to do with that part.The mixer is an early Challenger unit from 1962 .......maybe give my grand son a lump hammer and a treasure map
  22. These are my AC's The hoodless one is serial numbers to a 1929. The other is a 1935. One crane is unknow the second is a Quik-Way ex navy unit. So far I've done one engine out of two, one refurbished trans axle and one rebuildable spare. The pair of chassis' will give me one good one with a few brackets and parts left over. The suspenion and front axles are next in line followed by coming up with a modern radiator for the original housing. The sheet metal has to be a mix of what is there and what I find at ATHS and HERSEY meets. The cranes are for now far down the road, although I hope to end up with something from them. Funny thing is, ams many that were build it seems most didn't survive WWII scrap drives or were just worked to death.. The carborator turned out to be the same as a 20's Buick /Oakland. The magneto parts fit Ace and Indian 4 cylionder motorcycles. A real learnig curve. When I some day get to my 'B' mixer I should have a cake walk.. .. Paul
  23. AMEN!! I always thought that anyone who holds a Federal or State office should have at least 2 years of military service. I did mine ,and notice me and others who did have a different set of values. Not like the Haight Ashbery / Woodstock Crap we have now. Paul
