  1. check timing too..my friend had a truck off 6 or 8 degrees, from what i understand each degree is equivalent to 10hp
  2. I know they've come up in the past. My question is I have seen newer Mack MR garbage trucks with LED headlights that are brite are look great. Want to try and get the part # to see if they'd go into my 86 R model or 82 U model. Want to do something different on my dumps
  3. I need to find the photo but i want to say the same truck is owned by a friend of mine in Newtown,CT
  4. My old 96 F350 that went to RI got "winterized" and is now for sale
  5. I think it was a Brandon? not sure, i'll find out. He mainly hauls wood chips and mulch with that truck so its short and tall
  6. They say Sterling Services on them, they're based out of the Monroe,CT area. you won't see them on your end of the state much unless they're hauling for Gateway
  7. I attended the auction, they're still in business. He owns half the town from what i understand and has a big oil business
  8. The same guy owned this DM as well, it ended up in Norwalk,CT and is being used..the guy had a good size demolition company years ago and has been selling everything off
  9. Some pix of the Copar Granites my friend who owns them took, they're now a gray cab/black fender color combo
  10. Yeah they're done. my friend has about 8 of the Granite dump trucks, the tri-axle tractor was for sale at a dealer in Mass
  11. Couple of Macks at the Bethel Sand and Gravel auction in the fall
  12. Toying around with fixing up a B61T I acquired for snowplowing work next season, was thinking of converting the air wipers to electric just due to being able to have more speeds. I went with a friend today to look at a truck in NY and the seller had a B model fire truck with top mounted wipers that used American Bosch individual electric wiper motors. Curious to get feedback from anyone whos used them or converted to electric?
  13. Nice. I figured with how mint your Macks are that they probably never even left the garage in the winter. After doing a lot of work and some painting on my 2000 F450 i don't even want to take it out of the barn in the winter
  14. Do you plow with any of your trucks/equipment?
  15. I always enjoy the variety at the show and look forward to it regardless of the date
  16. I'm going to be changing the gearing on my B61SX tri-axle when I change the transmission and am trying to figure out the best gear ratio. The plan is to put in the 12 speed Direct transmission going to 24.5 tires. I know a lot of people run the 12 speed OD trans with 4.64 gears. With the direct i'm thinking 4.17s, not sure if 4.42s would really hurt my highway speed Not sure where i could find the formula to figure it out or if anyone has some experience
  17. https://www.flickr.com/photos/bkrois/5307846971/in/album-72157625585095231/ My friend plowed for the town and state with Old Macks for years, not sure if the link with show the photo but he had plenty of B models. As long as the heaters were working no real issues
  18. Saw you guys too, seeing the guy driving the Lull down 84 West distracted me a little though
