  2. Here you can see two pictures. Unfortunately the one showing R600 has some text lines cut off so no width there. The other is for R700 and that type had different hood length and slightly taller. Overall width is almost the same between both of them. Worth to note the dimentions given don't contein mirrors for some reason. So you probably should use 10 feet of width as David pointed out above. Or if you have a good quality photo taken from the front of the trucks you could try to count the actual distance between them parked. It seems interesting to learn the figures you will get doing the math. I definitely not going to try repeating that jump with my motorbike but the initial ground speed and the ramp angle would feed my couriosity. Vlad
  3. It's written overthere " It’s a W-71. Somewhat rare, certainly rare here on the island. This one came off a farm, has the extended cab for sleeper. Cab interior pretty rough but restorable. " Croatia is definitely not an Island, it's on the mainland. If you look over the 2nd picture you can see Freigtliner parked to the left of Mack. If you zoom you can read "comoxpacific.com" on its right door. And if you go to that website you will find that's a ferry company serving Vancouver island. https://www.comoxpacific.com/ Pretty interesting anyway.
  4. I think of 7 or 8 examples known existing 5 or 6 have integral sleepers.
  5. Wow! I double that. Best B-day wishes!
  6. I'm for an H. Sure any conventional basically has more attractive shape than a cabover but H-models stay apart from the most of commonly looking trucks. I think you could figure on building additional front end off an L-model you could attach to your H to make it differents at times you want
  7. Can you protect your lungs by some quite efficient way? Looks nasty on my screen. We had smoke in the city for a month or two about 10 years ago because of swamps burning in 150 km. But dust seems as a different matter. Hope you can stay safe with what happens.
  8. I would guess LJ. Could also be LF. Difficult to judge weight raiting by the look. LF's usually had smaller wheels of 20" but that was not a rure and the particular wheels were not installed at the factory also. Both sleeper cab and "hard nose" were factory options. It has longer hood and being accompanied by Diesel badges I would expect to find Cummins under the hood. Nice looking and rarely set up unit no doubt.
  9. My guess is you're talking about this one. The photo was taken at Trucktoberfest as I remember but by someone else.
  10. Looks like the video is showed faster than it was filmed, you can see a car running down the street 3-4 times quicker than it would usually do. But doesn't seem as fun anyway.
  11. Ufff, never even thought about that. Thanks for pointing out.
  12. Thank you Kevin. My final solution was to not install them on the truck since 1st it came off the assembly line without them and 2nd it would be one (even 2) extra parts to care about. So hood is done without them. I just had to tinker with SS plates since they were originally of that style to suite the sorrounds.
  13. Looks well cared. Sure there must be steel dash in it.
  14. Update on the suggestions. The cab looks much more of a commercial L-model cab installed onto NM chassis. Front lower corner has a cutout for front fender as the most L's have but original NM cab has that spot boxed because of its special fender shape. Also the only part in green is the cab. Front sheet metal painted the same faded red as all the rest of the truck. So the most probably the cab was changed later and too possibly the truck went off the assembly line with a later series military open cab.
  15. I have some feelings that Canadian factory way of arranging truck's setup could be involved. All my R's or even better to say all 5 SGT trucks imported to Russia were assembled in Oakville. And they didn't have plastic surrounds being 1988 year made. I might be wrong but it seems to me the most Macungie R's were equipped with those extra framings.
  16. Just please PM me via the forum if you get a new catalog and I will reply with my address.
  17. All those are relatively close to each other if looking from your neighbourhood. And the same way to arrange shipping and too probably the same cost (which is sure would be on my side to cover). The offer is very appreciated.In fact having no Mack parts list accessible I'm almost blind when figuring a correct part.
  18. Ok, thank you for offering the help. If any real need I will disturb you by e-mail you once gave me for such reasons.
  19. Agree, seems like that. Worth to admitt the original early plate you posted the picture of was made of aluminium and those new PAI ones are SS. Difficult to determine that until they're in your hands and I was very pleased when discower that (and a quite good look either) when purchased my set a few years back. Hope and suppose they still are made that style.
  20. Rob, thank you for clearing me up on that clearance lights shut off option. Never knew that and all European or Russian made vehicles driving in my neck of the woods have nothing of such a function. So people thank each other by blinking warning lights. Here in Moscow I also could locate a few companies which can import PAI parts as their common business (if I have a part number) but purchasing original Mack part is a real headach. So PAI references are very helpful to me in many cases. Another point I'm not always sure a PAI part is made of the same good quality as an OEM original and they in most cases are not the same part. But so far I had no major issue with that.
  21. Uupps! Never seen an R-model with the heater socket located that way. Otherwise you can use those PAI plates for this style of hood with tabs/framings.
  22. No, DMM ones are different. They have light edges at the centers of the side lines. They're slightly wider in the middle section than at the top and bottom areas. Seem like been of its special to DMM hood style. There's at least one more known to me shape of those plates which was used on later series DM-models with the front of the hood offsettings forward to allow fitting intercooler. Those are shorter than the R-model ones and differ from DMM style either.
  23. These look the way they must fit early Eastern R, early DM with a flat front and Eastern F-models. And I suppose quite difficult to find in new condition.
  24. Good job! I wish you could get the perfect match on the interiour color. Speaking about the exterior I would advice to draw a simple picture of the truck using computer and than apply multiple colors and combos to get understanding on what you enjoy better. Thanks for the tip on that wiper air motor rebuild kit. I have electrical setup off a RD cab but using original old fashion air driven unit seems more authintic and interesting. Can you share the part # of that kit?
