  1. I'm at the same point. The fitting rounded off and there's such minimal room to work I think I'm to the point of needing to take the intake manifold off the back. Im worried to cut the hose like some suggested and risk metal filings fall into the oil galley while trying to remove the damaged firing, it does look like a 2 piece fitting but I'm still going to have a issue getting the 2nd piece off that threads into the filter housing.
  2. Shook it down, found the wheel bearing was loose on the driver's side, we will see if that fixes it.
  3. I have a 97 tri axle dump, the driver says he can feel a shake in the front end while braking only. He claims after I put a new set of 315 firestone steer tires on he started noticing it and seems to be getting worse. Any ideas? I wouldn't the front drums would ever get hot enough to warp but maybe I'm wrong.

  5. Welp, found a crack. Guess I better call axle surgeons. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  6. I just took it apart again and it looks like the seal is dry from the outside and the underside of the axle tube (to the inside of the spindle) is leaking directly under the brake shoes. Is there a fix to this or does the whole axle housing need to be replaced? It doesn't appear to be cracked but it's very wet all on the bottom of the tube. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  7. One of the parts stores around here are telling me to use a scottseal xl +. No special tools needed to install and will seal better than a stemco grit guard. Any input? Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  8. Just cleaned the vent, I actually changed the vents over to a Spicer vent with the preformed rubber tube. I donth think there's a spacer anywhere. Unless your talking about the bearing race? Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  9. By eye the bearing wear seems to be ok, it's just where the seal rides seems to be pitted. I cleaned it up the best I could with some Emory paper and brake cleaner then a thin coat of some permatex gear lube silicone. And it still appears to be leaking, the hub looks fine and spindle look fine crack wise I was just thinking there's got to be a wear sleeve out there somewhere that should slide over the pitted part and leave me with a fresh new surface to seal to.

  10. I have a hub on my RD with 44k drive axles that will not seal. The spindle where the hub seal rides is semi pitted and I think is a major factor, does anyone make a wear sleeve and corresponding hub seal to renew the surface? Part numbers would be greatly appreciated if there is such a part for this. Allentown mack was no help to me, could not answer the question. Thank you
  11. I have 1000 miles and about 2 months time on a reman caterpillar oil cooler and only one end of the rubber was deteriorated and blown completely out. What would cause this? Would you consider this defective? I never had any level increase in the radiator as if I was gaining fuel dilution. There was never any smell of fuel in the coolant. The system was flushed very thoroughly many times with a fleetguard flush detergent after the old cooler went bad then even in that time frame I had another hose that I missed changing ( the little 4" rubber hose to feed the air compressor) blow out and I had
  12. Thank you gentlemen, yeah it's a RW700..it has the 400 Cummins and a 13 speed. I still don't know of axles and suspension yet. Or even if there's enough frame. I'd love to add a lift axle and a 16' body. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  13. Is there such a thing as a heavy single frame on a superliner? I found a RW700 and it supposedly has a "heavy single frame". I'd love to put a dump body on this truck and I'd love to not deal with a double frames inevitable spread but am worried it wouldn't be a good idea for a dump. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  14. Turned out to simply be the throttle switch at the pump...it was working fine at low rpm bit for whatever reason the higher rpms would cut it out. Replaced it and all is fine after months of misc parts and wires replaced. Oh well...it works now. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  15. I have the mechanical Bosch pump just replaced the solenoids and rocker assemblies and it is still intermittent starting now at 1250 and up rpm. I cannot find any relay there's a circuit breaker for the engine brake but cannot locate a relay ( the spot for it is blank). Seems to be fine before 1200-1300 rpm.
  16. I'm sure this topic is on here some where but I was unable to easily find it. Can a mechanical E7-350 with a dynatard be converted to a Jacobs setup? I'm finding the dynatard is becoming extremely hard to find new parts for.
  17. Dumb question and I'll ask Allentown mack tomorrow but when you buy a reman rocker arm from cat it comes with everything as a assembly, is it the same way with mack or do they sell it all a individual parts???
  18. That would be much appreciated! I guess this scenario is becoming more common as these engines age. Crazy why they would discontinue them though. If you find any let me know Thanks!
  19. I'm in need of a Mack 73GC27D or PAI ELA-3543 lash adjusters I'd like to do all 6 but am being told mack and Pai both discontinued them. Now what do I do?
  20. On my 91 the other day I experienced what I thought was a stuck on engine brake...pulled the valve covers and noticed 4 bent exhaust valve push rods. Also noticed the engine brake solenoids not activating at the same time, the rear solenoid activated way later than the front at a idle. Oil pressure seems to be fine 30+/- psi @ idle. I ran the truck all day and it was fine then at the end of the day in 8th gear (8ll trans) it started sounding like a bad miss or like it needed fuel filters. I didn't really notice it again until I needed to back up loaded up a hill then it got worse from there. I
  21. It works fine below about 1500 then above that it gets starts cutting out as the rpms get higher. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
