    Good thing to let a seller having a "def" time before making an offer. After 2-3 weeks of no activity there could be much more interest. At least for a reason of no sell to be explained.
  2. Looks like a very nice place to be at and grab sone needed (and unneeded) pieces of iron. I like the L's and the sun visor on the MH. Hope you will share the location after your deal is done.

    1936 Mack

    Looks solid at all but the asking price seems way out of sence.
  4. Congrats on the deal done! Alot of extra parts - also good, plenty of what to play with.
  5. Thank you. Actually I talk German a lil bit and my tight communications with Dutch Mack guys add that challenging either. So plenty of what to get fun of In Russian we call Bitum that very juice you mix with sand and gravel to pave the road. And we call Asphalt the top layer of the pavement, almost the same as you do. So not too difficult to study English in some cases. And now seems Australian too
  6. Ok, thanks. Just didn't expect such easy matter.
  7. Thanks for the guidance. If not a big trouble please PM me the basic info on those rails you passed along the purchase. I sure could call the guy but my speak skills aren't that perfect to speak by phone very well.
  8. What is that black top you guys are talking about? Marmite??
  9. Ok, got that. I'm not too deep into E-models. Knowing there were multiple series with different ratings I mostly pay attention to the grill style. And as long as the heavier series one makes my preference I limit attention to the smallers. Anyway both those black fenders/green cabs have amazing look
  10. Very clean looking example. Isn't it a sister truck to yours Jim?
  11. Ok, seems better to add some amount of used engine oil together with ATF. The fuel will be BLACK that way. Locally I was told about a person running an old Mercedes car diesel on a clean ATF. Have no idea on how it could be safe for a pump but would expect plenty of carbon in the chambers. And probably smoke.

    R795 V8

    Taking to account it's coupled to 6-speed transmission seems like it is.
  13. Thank you for telling that. On the other hand being at my age I started thinking there's something in a man's nature of that kind, just multiplied to the scale of milions people leading.
  14. I saw at least one LT or LTL with Hall-Scott at Macungie but don't remember seeing any with 707. So far an LT is out of my field of interest since my goal is all Mack. But those trucks look so beautiful so I would like to fill the niche. On the 3rd hand if I even get the interest it will too probably stay just a theory regarding to LT costs
  15. As long as I know GPS ones don't work in tunnels. A friend of mine bought some setup and could connect to his stock electric speedo gauge in a car but got that tunnel issue.
  16. I'm not in a hurry so far since the truck is completely stripped down and I'm going to get the engine and the front axle redone. The rears and the most of soft skins are ready but all separate. As current option I have a second truck which is a sister to the one I took all the components off for the restoration. But it runs so far and I don't want to part it out at the time. Taking a complete truck apart is also a bunch of job which cost some money I would have to pay at least to my helpers. And the rails there aren't perfect too. Another issue the truck has relatively long WB of 220" since it has a sleeper. And there's additional trouble/ I need the chassis with no VIN stamping since my truck doesn't have it and it marked in the paperwork. If I use stamped rail and grind if off that could be a big trouble even jail in theory. All in all I would eager to pay something like a couple of grands for a pair of suitable rails taking to account it would cost nearly 1K to ship them to my place from New Jersey. But said above I doubt it would be an easy to do deal.
  17. Yes, just the other day I got to some on-line auction and there was an ad with cabs and other parts taken from such Aussie military RM. So that one must be lucky, even painted pink.
  18. Were there any LT's with Mack gasoline engine ever appeared on a scene? I think some of them leaved the factory at some time but I doubt I ever saw one or it was discussed on here.
  19. looks like the camera is doing well. Nice pictures, especially the crocodiles in a car.
  20. Wonder did they put that bus body on the truck chassis or just attached the hood? I lean toward the latter option.
