  1. Filter Section

    What's old is new again. Most cats all use canister type filters now. It lowers their "footprint" by not having all the metal from the spin on type going to the dumpster is what we were told in training.
  2. Suprised at this, work ordered an F-450 for a small service truck and it's a 14 week wait for it.
  3. Saw it at Slippery Rock materials yesterday and along I-80 getting loaded today. Truck looks damn good. It's nice to see something other than the standard Pete or KW. Very nice work you should be proud.
  4. Just did mine last weekend. I had to replace the adjuster nut on mine as well, as the threads peeled off it. Thankfully the bad thread on the spindle was at the bottom and could be cleaned up.
  5. Mechanical engines

    I've got a 98 E7-350 that is pure mechanical (rod from pedal to govenor) in my RD688 tractor. It is with out a doubt the best cold starting engine I have ever owned.
  6. 3176 Cat Good or Bad

    I'm a Cat man for a living, with all the tooling and information needed. i would pass myself, parts are available, but electronics are costly and there are less and less people left that can work on them. The 3116 is the engine with a "Detroit" style fuel system. I love those lil guys, a true mechanics engine.
  7. My new used Superliner

    Yup, pulling my lil pup. The two trucks you guys had there are are some well taken care of pieces. They always catch my eye when I pass them on 79.
  8. My new used Superliner

    Drove by hauling corn Friday when you guys were taking the bed off. I'm suprised to seee Rodger is selling stuff. In the past he had no interest in getting rid of anything.
  9. 38k camelback cutoff

    The 38 does have the heavy duty trunnion stand, I didn't know they offered it in that rating.
  10. EM6 285 swap to E6 350 (4vh)

    It is set up with ATAAC, it originally was a tip turbine.
  11. I current have a 285 in my 01 RD glider and after hauling grain the last few weeks, I'm ready/need more power. I have a 4vh 350 sitting in my garage looking to be installed. My truck is a triaxle, 8LL, 4.64 rears on 24.5. My question is will the 350 be that much of an improvement? I know to get to the 427 to 454 hp range I have to go electronic. I'm not against that at all, I would love the power, but cruise control would be wonderful for my right knee. So am I going to gain much with the 350 or should I go newer? Thanks for thought and opinions.
  12. 18000lbs or 20000lbs front axle for a Superliner

    250.00, I'm 6 miles away from the Mack dealer on the same road. I saw you drive by my farm this summer in the truck in your avatar.
  13. 18000lbs or 20000lbs front axle for a Superliner

    I've got an 18,000 from an RD sitting in the barn.
  14. I'll look into what it might cost. I work at a Cat dealer and our parts dept. ships stuff all over heck and creation. Shouldn't be that hard to pallet them up.
