  1. Engine paint codes as of 1990. Maxidyne Gold 348 ; Andes Copper 540; Power Engine Gray 08408 ; Light Blue 344.
  2. I guess that was common years ago around here anyway , to have at least one brand new truck sitting in the garage. Kept everybody wondering. I was never that rich. Had to be in mine 6 sometimes 7 days a week when the work was there !
  3. Here is Greco #255. In storage since almost new! Mileage is in the low 1,000's!
  4. No it isn't , Bill . I will run a channel from the hood hinge bolts,out towards the outer edge of the inside of the fender,and hang some plastic shortened mud flaps off of it. I did that on my 6 wheeler,and it kept the crap from streaking my bumper .
  5. I bought Hendrickson part # 7644 for my '88 R690. Bolted right on even though it was made for later RD's. A MACK purest stopped by one day and told me he liked the factory bumper because they had a sharper not a gradual bend in them like mine.
  6. Me hanging on one back a few years ago......not quite the same color,but in the neighborhood ! Your's looks GREAT! Al
  7. My uncle told me of the ATF trick , back in the '70's. Never tried it . Like some of the other guys, I use Power Service with the ULSD Bio-Diesel blend (about all we can get at the stations in the Northern Illinois area). Seems to do the job. You can get the non bio blend from fuel distributors around here, if you have a bulk tank. I have noticed that I lose my prime in the fuel systems on the old trucks , if I don't start 'em for a while. Don't know if it's the ULSD ,or just the age of the trucks ? Al
  8. Love the pinstriping/lettering (and the truck,of course)!
  9. I am afraid James is right,Les. Eugene "Gene" Celli passed away April 2nd , 2015 . I still have a message on my voice mail from him from 2014, that I haven't erased yet! .
  10. No, unfortunately I don't .Just what you see here. Al
  11. Have some pretty decent interior panels taken out of a mid '80s Value-Liner . Nice headliner,back of cab panel (w/ dispatch box) ,both interior visors , and pillar panels. They are tan in color. They are used,but will clean up nicely. Lowered price to $200.00 obo for the lot. Must be picked up. PM me if interested. Al
  12. Has anything really materialized from this outfit ? All i've seen is mock-ups and CAD drawings. I realize Rome wasn't built in a day, but could "one-at-a-time" assembly be profitable in today's day and age? I guess Osterlund did do it that way . Wish him the best of luck . Al
