  1. David Wild, why is anyone who does not agree with you, and loon or whatever description you want to provide? You don't seem to be very respectful of those with differing points of view. Last I checked everyone has a right to thier opinion. I don't get it?
  2. I have a 1985 R Model Mack rescue truck with an Allison Automatic transmission. It has a manual Morse shifter mounted on a tower. During some restoration activities some of the side area was damaged, so this is cosmetic. The panel is black plastic and has the indicator panel for which gear you have selected. I would like to replace this plasic panel, but have had no luck in finding a new replacement. Morse seems to have been sold many times, and the only thing I can find is boating products. I have attached a photo of the plastic panel for reference. The gear selector piece come
  3. I believe that history will show that Trump was the most corrupt president in modern history. While he said he was going to "clean up the swamp" but he has placed his loyalists in positions that they are not qualified for. He has provided the wealthy and companies with a substantial tax cut, while the working class was led to believe they would get the same. For me, while I took home more money, come tax season I paid 3K that I would have rather paid in each paycheck. As we see time and time again he has fired anyone who disagrees with him, and I believe this is a coverup. His cabinet position
  4. Glenn, welcome and congratulations on your truck. I have a 1965 B95 with a 707C Gasoline engine. I have found that most of the ignition components are GM and as said parts are easily available. A lot of folks recomend NAPA for parts. A good NAPA dealer will research your parts and find what you need. One of the problems I have heard of is with the points, so most folks will update to an electronic ignition. You will need two, and they are pretty easy to install. Also you remove the points and condensor eliminating those parts. I use Pertronix electronic ignition parts. You will need to g
  5. I listened to a portion of his speech today and he admitted to working on obtaining a stockpile of ventilators for the predicted need in about three weeks. He has requested those along with other needed PPE. My opinion is that the federal government blew this one and should be the ones to stockpile and distribute items as needed, instead of every state, hospital, and the feds bidding for the same items. The feds could/should make the purchases because of their buying power. He stated that before the virus ventilators were 20K. With all of the needs they are now 50K. He has asked for ANY medic

  7. I am cleaning up the brake and accelerator bases and pedals on my 1885 R Model Mack rescue truck. While preparing the brake base for blasting I removed and tore the rubber stop that is on the heal of the base. I have contacted Williams Air Controls and Watts about a replacement part with no success. A new base is available with the rubber stopper in place, I would rather not go that route for the "stop". I am attaching a photo of the stop - it's about the size of a large gumdrop with a section that goes into the base and "Locks in". If anyone has a source for this part please reply. Many thank
  8. Can anyone suggest a company/person to repair/restore a B Model steering Wheel? Many thanks, Mark
  9. I have had one of my carburetors rebuilt by a mechanic friend of mine, and he said it was pretty straight forward. The only thing I had to replace was the shaft bearings that were not included in the kit. If you can find a good mechanic that is interested, or someone in your SPAMFFA group to help you out with the rebuild, I would go that way. You can get a rebuild kit @ https://carbkitsource.com/models/Zenith 29D.html You can contact Zenith Fuel Systems also @ http://zenithfuelsystems.com/ I hope this helps, Mark
  10. Lens has been located and purchased. Thank you, Mark
  11. Gents, thank for the assistance with the motor issue. I am now looking for the red lens for the light, which was on Models 211, 7-110, and 7-114. The lense was alos used on the Federal Beacon 184. I am looking for a good clean lens with no cracks. 610-246-3265 or IM me on this site. Thanks
  12. I have found a motor unit from a member of this forum. Thanks, Mark
  13. Thanks. The motor I have does not even turn. Who has NOS?
  14. I have a 1965 B95 pumper that came with a Dietz Model 211 four light beacon. I was checking the operation the other day and it appears that the rotator motor is dead. I am looking for a motor, but will get the complete fixture if needed. The fixture I have is in great condition, so I really would like to repair this one and keep the truck as original as possible. Dietz also updated the model numbers to 7-110 and 7-114 in later years. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mark 610-246-3265
