    I went through Brown and Sharpe tools and found the largest taper reamers of 1.33 OD (and $500 worth:)). Mack king pins are even larger. Also not sure about 7 degree taper. That angle was marked as used for tie rod end holes (and plenty of reamers to fix those holes and up to 1") but I found no facts of what the king pin taper is.

    If milling the holes in a beam it's possible to make the sleeve by lathe and cut the taper already in there before pressing in. I suppose it wouldn't deform really much after in. Also the king pin would add pressure and correct minor "outofshapenesses". Also if I were doing the job I would make a step seat for the sleeve and weld it over to the beam on both sides.

    So anybody have any idea where the pictures are domiciled.?

    Go into Hanks Forum and look for the thread on pictures, there is a post on the old site pictures and quite a few of the members have licks to their photos.

    Very KooL ride!  Think it is actually a 1968 model because it has no door vent windows. 

     I never really paid much attention to Camaros and Chevelles but do remember up dating  the 67 models with 68 parts to stay in your Super Stock class  the following years. Did that with my 1970 Challengers and 1971 Duster for three years in a row. 

    Would bet he has it in one of his barns.

    I guess if truck photographers don't want to cash in that is their business. I don't get the point of keeping all this truck history to themselves though. Its kind of like when you were -I am going to take my bat and ball and go home. Everyone loses.:(

    My photos I post anyone can use , I can't see not letting people enjoy them, just don't put their name on the and take credit for them.

    Funny about taking the bat and ball and leaving, that's what Rob Archer said  in his post on Hanks forum.

    I wondered what was happening with the new medium-duty truck. There must something going on with it that the UAW wants in on. This tells me that Volvo is spending money on Mack. West coast plant?  UD based Mack medium-duty?  But still this is dumb strike by the UAW.

    Look what GM just agreed to  with their workers. I see a lot more going out to get their piece of the pie.

    You own the copyright to the picture you took unless you Transfered it in writing


    The person who supposedly copyrighted the picture, did they actually copy right it or are they just claiming they did, and the lawyer would have an uphill battle on this one


    It is possible that there are two very similar images out there


    The reality is it's probably not worth the trouble

    The photo was taken from my pick up of my truck in my yard and there is not another Marmon with the paint scheme I painted on it.

    AS for copy righting the photos there were photos from Autocar, the original Sterlings and Pacifics that were factory releases but are copyrights by people who were not even alive than.  

    Kevin (KSCARBEL) posted photos form Mack of their train engines and the like and got hit on here by a lawyer representing the "owner".

    Basically it is a grey area on image ownership and even the right to take the photos and in plain english a lot is scare tactics and B.S. .

  7. Two sides to the coin. I was flagged by a lawyer who apparently makes money on the web threatening legal action over a photo being used with out authorazion. The photo was taken by me of my Marmon in my driveway. Someone took it off my Fotki site, put their name on it, copyrighted it and put it in their Hanks album. Legally I can't do anything about it except comply.

    Hopefully you have a video of them saying this in a public meeting so you can sue each of them personally for defamation of character

    Minutes of the meeting have it all and daughter in laws video. 

    As for suing them, people are too quick to sue over every little thing, it is better to have them called out and beaten in the village election.

    I still think there's a big misunderstanding somewhere in this? Or not?

    That's the great thing about this forum P.T., you can be typing and threading while your covered in the days filth, or even sitting on your porcelain throne, and still everyone perceives you as a congenial gentleman so long as you have a good paint job, truck building experience, decent truck pics or Mack savvy. Not only are folks on BMT not judgmental, we lack judgement. That's why it could all be a matter of confusion and misunderstanding on the part of the Bitty Committee.


    For instance this pic of you. Looks like your homeless, Right? but actually  patiently waiting for the truck salvage yard up in Bangor to open.....Just a matter of perception really.. Now THAT'S dedication!!! However, the ladies wouldn't understand.

    You after buying a shopping cart full of vintage truck parts at the 2019 Macungie swap meet. NICE SCORE!!! Ladies are all like...." Oh, Yuck".

    Remember this one? You living in your travel van, down by the river, for a week in Michigan chasing the Grapevine B Mack....LOOKS COMFY!! (appear 2B searching for a Moxie?). Ladies are all gagging, looking down and praying you have your boxers on.

    In our world your the “Man with the plan” willing to skip a shower to score the prize......but a “high class" prissy township girl really is never going to understand you.  

    Sorry I do not wear hats, sneakers or shorts.

    Spent most of my time in Aroostook County and Fryeburg ,  potatoe country, all we could haul back in 70s before deregulation. (produce)

    My ancestors came from Cape Elizabeth when it was still the Mass Bay Colony,  due to a disagreement over privateering with the Crown in 1630, we had to go live with the Dutch in New Amsterdam.
