    Thanks for the link a lot of cool photos. Correct me if I'm wrong but it looks like the 1974 engine with the addition of the enclosed cab and the simulators on the wheels

    Some Russian firetruck pics

    Thanks Vlad they are all beautiful. I particularly like the ZIS ladder truck and the six wheel experimental truck that's looks like a boat.

    New to the form and need help.

    My suggestion is convert the rig to drum brakes. The rear end in your truck was made for many years and the parts to do the conversion should be readily available. Good luck, . Don
  7. Very nice, I like how the drive train is set up. Enjoy

    Model "C" question

    All my C models have hydraulic power steering. The pump is run off the back of the air compressor. My oldest C model is a 1961 and the newest is a 1967. Take care, Don

    Craigslist Mack

    Joe that that truck has, should have, Yocum Creek written all over it. It would be a great addition to your fleet and the best tanker in the Evarts area based on reliability and the amount of water it carries. I think you need to push David into having the county find some money. Just my opinion, Don
  10. Hello Paul, The paint job looks awesome congratulations on a job well done. Mal and Katherine traveling so far to help you with Mrs Mack says a lot about the type of good people you are. Enjoy Mrs Mack. So how does Mal feel about being a world famous painter. Take care, Don
  11. Hello Paul, . Thanks for documenting your project for us. It is quite an undertaking. As 85snowdog has said this beats anything that's on television. I know that as I'm getting ready to go to sleep your hard at work on the next episode. I just have one question. How is it Mal is so relaxed and you seem so stressed. In all seriousness you are making a difficult job look fairly easy. Keep up the good work. Don

    Warning Light for restoration

    Hello, can you post a photo of the rig. There are a lot of guys out there that take photos and post them on the Internet for our viewing pleasur. You can also contact the Mack Museum to get a copy of the original build sheet which would include what was installed when new. Stupid question but there are no photos of the rig in its original configuration in the station. Most likley was a Federal Beacon Ray or Dietz 211.
