  1. Greg, Thanks! Makes sense about a larger pan. Do you know if the same pan fits both the E6 and E7? I do not remember specifics about the oil pan when the E7 was developed. I looked in my parts book and it lists only one pan. I checked some other E7 spec sheets and they all show 33.5 qts. capacity. Perhaps it was a dealer installed item or installed by Martin's.
  2. I just changed the oil and filters (2 spin-on + 1 centri-max) in my 1992 EM7-300. The spec sheet shows 33.5 qts including filters but I added 13+ gallons (52 qts) to get to the FULL mark on the dipstick. I use Shell Rotella Triple-Protection/T4 15W-40. Mack recommends SAE50 synthetic lube in the transmission and either 75W-90 or 80W-90 synthetic in the axles. Capacity is typically about five (5) gallons per component. http://www.macktrucks.com/-/media/files/pv776-89149448.pdf/?la=en https://www.wattstruckcenter.com/portal/engine/filter-kits/ (click on the E6/E7 filter kits BUTTON at top of page)
  3. I plan to be there on Wednesday. I am sure there are some MH parts I want but don't have a list. BMT group photo is usually Saturday at noon. Save travels everyone!
  4. Mike, Thanks for the update and good to hear you are doing well. Are you going to Des Moines? I plan to be there. Look for the baby blue Roll Hauler MH!
  5. How big is the box and how heavy? If Freightrain is not going to Des Moines, I could transport it to Canton. That is if I make it to Des Moines safe and sound. Larry lives just a few miles from me.
  6. Using IE11 and no issues "that I know of".
  7. Happy Birthday and many more! Hope it was a good one!
  8. Happy Birthday Al and many more. Enjoy your day!
  9. Just over one (1) week till we travel to Des Moines. Tim Hoover will not be joining the convoy as he is leaving on Tuesday evening and travelling the PA/OH/IN turnpike route. Per the original message, contact me if you are interested in joining. Safe travels to those headed to Des Moines.
  10. No issues logging on to BMT. I am using WIN8.1 and IE11. FWIW, I am just tired of seeing all the political BS and personal bashing. I was at MATS and saw Maint1 (Dave), Doug Maney, and Rene (Netherlands). Never made it outside to see the show trucks. Most of the show trucks are a POS in my opinion, easy to "modify" a truck but DIFFICULT to keep in original condition. Lots of nice older trucks displayed throughout the show compliments of ATHS members.
  11. Paul, Is this place north of Akron (just north of 303) on Route 8 near Boston Heights?
  12. The 2017 show will be held on Friday and Saturday July 21 & 22 at the Morrison's Cove Memorial Park in Martinsburg, PA. This year's show will be held in conjunction with the Martinsburg Volunteer Fire Department's 125th Anniversary celebration. The MVFD will be selling ox roast sandwiches and other food/drink items starting each day at 11am. They will provide entertainment each night starting at 7pm. They will be selling a pancake and sausage breakfast on Saturday 7am-10am. Plan to attend and support a local organization. For more information and registration form please go to the Keystone Chapter's website http://www.keystonetrucks.org/ and click on "2017 MARTINSBURG, PA SHOW INFORMATION" button. The Chapter is seeking any fire related equipment to help make the MVFD celebration as huge success.
  13. A group of guys from south central PA are planning to convoy to the national ATHS show in Des Moines, IA. The plan is to leave the Altoona, PA area on Tuesday morning May 23rd (O dark 30) via Route 22. Quick stop at Watt's to meet Tim Hoover and then on to New Stanton. Travel west on I-70 and stop at London, OH (exit 79). Then continue west on I-70 to Indy then I-74 west to Danville, IL where we will overnight at the Sleep Inn. On Wednesday we will continue west on I-74 to I-80 west to Des Moines. We will leave Des Moines on Sunday morning (28th) and return on the same route with stop for the night at Richmond, IN (New Paris OH Fairfield Inn). Then return home on Monday. I will be leaving Tuesday morning from my residence in Canton, OH and driving I-77 south to Route 30 west to I-71 and south to Columbus OH. I will be meeting the PA group in London, OH (exit 79). If anyone is interested in being part of our convoy, send an email to rollhauler at outlook dot com and put "Des Moines Convoy" in the subject. I saw in WoT another group is planning a convoy from MD via Route 30. Route 30 would be an interesting route but will take forever with mountains, two lane highway, and small towns.
  14. Tom, Sorry for your loss. It could have been worse but that does not make it any easier to handle. Good luck with the insurance settlement.
  15. Thoughts and prayers going your way!
