  1. you may have done this already but leave the fuel cap off when you start it...if it keeps running then your tank vent is plugged
  2. We drove the Mack to New Alexandria and back hauling my sons power wagon putting about 350 miles on her. We took rt 30 down to East Liverpool then across the river and up the hill to rt 22 . We gave the old triplex a workout that day...Everytime I drive the Mack I am reminded of my dad back in the day,driving his B-61 from Akron to Baltimore three times a week and If he were still here Im sure he would have given me that loving slap to the back of the head when I didnt catch a gear just right....just like he did when we were kids teaching us how to drive...Everyweekend there seemed to be a p
  3. I bought an alternator from a guy on ebay..qualitypower1..he put a double groove pulley on it and sent a bracket along that bolted to the stock generator mount..I bought it pos ground and ran it for a year then changed it over to neg. ground still keeping the series paralell switch...works good for me..Jim
  4. pretty sure thats the one sitting at Tiger General on St.Rt. 3 about half way between I-76 and 18 Medina...If you stop by check out that 1968 Cline winch truck with 8v71.....Jim
  5. Im planning to to haul the dodge to the BMT show at Watts Mack on the 22nd...its about a 3 hour drive....anyone else going? hope to see you there...Jim
  6. Our Mack and our sons 41 Dodge WC in the parade last weekend
  7. I didnt get to talk to anyone yet but I thought they maybe used the right tank for gas for the crane unit...left tank had a diesel sticker on it.....Jim
  8. B 83 SX sitting two miles north of Wooster Ohio on St.Rt. 83.

  9. I used the 4635 bottoms and 4636 tops for my B model and have held up good until I lost a top on the way back from Iowa...the guy down at the napa store got me another 4636 top for 65.00 and i thought all was good till they added 25.00 shipping...what can you say!!!!...Jim
  10. The first dodge is my sons 1941 wc 1/2 ton,been in our family for 25 years...the second one is Roy Franks 1953 1 ton power wagon....the fuel filter canister has a fiber washer under the top nut and was falling apart so we used a soft copper brake washer instead...seemed to do the trick...Jim
  11. I got home last nite from our trip to the Power wagon rally in Fairfield Iowa ..We put 600 miles on her sunday and a little over 1400 miles total.We hauled two power wagons out and back on our trailer,my sons and Roy Franks ... everything went good except for the last 75 miles or so on the way out when she quit on us..after changing the fuel filter we were back on the road for about 10 miles when she died again.We got going again and made it to Fairfield where I got a copper brake line washer and put it under the top nut on the fuel cannister..it was ok after that..The truck ran great as we co
  12. Hey just wanted to say thanks to Superdog...glad I got to meet you and the guys...very nice show with some great looking trucks...it was only 35 min. from the Powerwagon show at Fairfield so we were able to drive over for a few hours before going back and loading up the trucks...I must be getting old cause after 600 miles on the B yesterday I didnt want to get out of bed this morning but Im still smiling...Jim ...
  13. Im tall and my sons are even taller yet and my problem is that the released clutch pedal comes up so high making it hard to get your foot up on top of it...The clutch seems to meet the adjustment specs in the Mack book,grabs about half way up and does not slip but I have 4 inches of down travel till you start to feel some resistance...can I use the stop screw on the linkage to limit how far the released pedal comes up..Im thinking if I could adjust the stop and take out 2 inches at the top I would then have about 2 inches of free play...any ideas,,,thanks Jim
  14. OK....since I already got rid of the reg/gen and went to a one wire alt I just unhooked the pos groung alt and switched the cables at the battery and switched the wires on the volt meter and everything worked like it did before but im now neg ground....Like Larry said,,,I was overthinking this...So now Im dropping off the alt to have it changed to neg ground...the paper work with the new series parallel switch said it would work pos or neg depending how the battries were hooked up so were good to go....thanks everyone... Jim
